The Lost Legion was a legion of the army of Nerath during the time of its greatest power. Its disappearance is one of the great unsolved mysteries of the time.
The Lost Legion was one of the armies sent north by Nerath to deal with an uprising of cultists of Orcus in the region where Winterhaven now sits. After their victorious battle against the cultists and their demonic and undead allies, the Lost Legion intended to return directly to Nerath, while the rest of the army wintered in the north. However, the Lost Legion was never seen again. Some say that the legion succumbed to a curse placed on them by the cultists, and slaughtered each other in the wilds. Others say that Orcus himself arose from the Abyss and destroyed them in revenge for their interference.
Tradition has it that the Lost Legion was escorting some of Nerath’s most powerful priests and wizards, who had been present at the battle with the cultists.
