Valder is a commander in the Felheim Legion. Control over the vast masses of the undead falls to whoever wields the Fell Gauntlet, and Valder secured it at a young age.[1]


Valder is the ruler of Felheim, and wielder of the Fell Gauntlet. A combination of keen intellect, consummate martial skill and potent magics make him a singularly capable and intimidating foe.

Valder grew up in a 'fallow era' - so named because the Gauntlet's whereabouts were unknown in this period. In fallow eras, Felheim always became turbulent. Pockets of civility remained, but were adrift on a sea of rampant savagery. The dead, unchecked and ungoverned, wreaked havoc, forcing the living into acts of desperation.[2]


Valder's Groove is Raise Dead, creating an allied, full-health Soldier unit adjacent to him, which can act immediately.

Raise Dead charges very quickly, allowing Valder to rapidly increase the size of his army should he remain aggressive. Raised skeletons are able to move and attack on the same turn they're raised and thus allow Valder to strike a foe many tiles away.
