Aetharion wrote:One peculiar thing to note, though, is that the Raven Queen changed her nickname from Nera because she didn't want to be associated with Nerull anymore - Nerull named her Nera in his own honor, after all. So it might just have brought a curse upon the empire rather than a blessing (if it had any effect). An important lesson to learn from the fate of Nerath is, after all, that even the mightiest must fall and die, much like what is said in the Raven Queen's teachings.
Isn't it obvious? Nera isn't a name specifically given to the Raven Queen, Nera is most likely a title held by the chosen one of Nerull. Which means that the Nerath Empire... Oh wow, that's the basis for an entire campaign right there, free of charge!
