    NOTE: The Wizard's War is now considered a non-canonical Order of Týr album. This epic fantasy journey will be rebooted and continued with Spellweaver (http://spellweaver.bandcamp.com).
    ========================================================

    The Wizard's War chronicles a harrowing time in the history of the beautiful land of Deile Roith. The Kingdom's Principle Wizard Vortigern Trygil, along with his two understudies, have shocked and upturned Deile Roith by murdering King Beordolf and claiming the Throne in the absence of an heir.

    Now it is up to Aldric Daeghelm, First Knight of the Crown, to stop the advancing wizards before they attempt to enslave all of the lands surrounding Deile Roith.

    Will Daeghelm's small, tattered, and waning army be able bolster itself to face the magical might of the evil wizards head on, or will they be crushed under heel as Trygil and his merciless band of wizards begin to spread their control beyond the borders of Deile Roith?

Track Name: Prelude
In the once tranquil Kingdom of Deile Roith
A brooding plot was set forth
By a group of King Beordolf's most trusted advisors

Peace and ataraxia will be lost
And all that has ever been
Or will ever be
Shall be revealed

Prepare thyself!
Track Name: The Evil Wizards Arise
In the land of Deile Roith
The Kingdom is lead by Beordolf
In peace and honor
Joy and truth
No evil prevails

But this harmony
Won't last for long
Due to three evil men


Principle Wizard Trygil
Gathers with his darkened band
Of wizards and thieves to draw a plan
For the Kingdom's demise

They shall overthrow
Then beguile and kill
Poor King Beordolf


They have slain our King
What will we do now that
He is gone
We will stand and fight
For our righteous land


Now the evil wizards have
Begun their oppressive reign
But one faithful knight has yet escaped
To rally support

For the olden land
For the memory of
Our King Beordolf


First Knight Aldric Daeghelm
Is riding to the neighboring lands
Who were friends of Deile Roith
To tell the tale

These Wizards must
Not be left to rule
Or they'll seize all lands


They have slain our King
What will we do now that
He is gone
We will stand and fight
For our righteous land
Track Name: Knight of Valor
He came and told
Of the horrors he saw
In Deile Roith
Of the Wizards' plan
And their evil deeds

How they took the Throne
And what they did to the King
How they changed the law
And dealt with all dissent


Gather 'round and hear his story
Of the helpless oppressed peasants
Join and fight this looming evil
Help to rid the land of tyranny


He has raised an army of justice
To take down the Wizards
To stand up for good
And all that is right

To carry on the banner
Of our King Beordolf
If it is war they want
Then it is war they'll get
Track Name: Journey to Gardaena
Through day and night
We will ride on
Over plains and through the hills
With clear purpose

With steeled resolve
We journey onward
To the castle on the sea
In Gardaena


Over the mountains
Through the trees
We will journey to the seas
To the Kingdom
Of Gardaena

For the sword
And for the truth
For our fallen King to ‘venge
To raise an army strong

Knights and commoners
Gather ‘round
And listen to the sound
Of the distant cries behind

Our purpose is to end
The reign of evil men
We will need the aid
Of King Sigmund


No one of us
Is greater than another
We are all equals
In this struggle

So stand proud
We all fight for honor
And we’ll soon face the hordes
Of the wizards


Over the mountains
Through the trees
We will journey to the seas
To the Kingdom
Of Gardaena

For the sword
And for the truth
For our fallen King to ‘venge
To raise an army strong

Knights and commoners
Gather ‘round
And listen to the sound
Of the distant cries behind

Our purpose is to end
The reign of evil men
We will need the aid
Of King Sigmund


Look toward the sea
See the castle shining
We’ve survived thusfar
We will prevail

Now guide our steedes
To the valley below
We’ll request a court
With King Sigmund


Over the mountains
Through the trees
We will journey to the seas
To the Kingdom
Of Gardaena

For the sword
And for the truth
For our fallen King to ‘venge
To raise an army strong

Knights and commoners
Gather ‘round
And listen to the sound
Of the distant cries behind

Our purpose is to end
The reign of evil men
We will need the aid
Of King Sigmund


Listen! Listen well
For you will need
The Holy Emerald

It can give you power
Power above all
Even the evil wizards
Track Name: Legend of the Holy Emerald
The Holy Emerald
Is the ancient stone
Of glory and power
With it we can defeat
Trygil and his
Army of scourge

The stone was prophesied
To be the key to
End an evil
Act of tyranny


End the unholy reign of Trygil with the stone
He does not know the power of the jewel
Evil will not stand a chance


To south lies a
Cave guarded by a
Terrible monster
In this cave
You will find
The Holy Emerald

The cave is said to be
Inside the Forest of Ancients
Prepare yourself
For a battle like
None you’ve yet seen


End the unholy reign of Trygil with the stone
He does not know the power of the jewel
Evil will not stand a chance


Ready your helms and shields
And steel yourself
Sharpen your gleaming swords
You have honed your skills
Now prepare your minds
For the battle ahead
Track Name: Quest for the Throne
This dark night will last forever
‘Til our quest has come to end
Charged by the King of Gardaena
And it’s Throne

We must search the Forest of Ancients
For a long-forgotten cave
In it lies a beast guarding
That holy jewel


Our quest for the Throne
It will lead us to peril
With swords raised to the sky
We will fight, and we will win


We found the cave of fable
Now to face the creatures within
Dragons or demons, it matters not
We must succeed

Raging battle in the darkness
Deafening cries of the unholy beast
Show no mercy for it guards
Our only hope


Our quest for the Throne
It will lead us to peril
With swords raised to the sky
We will fight, and we will...


Our quest for the Throne
It has led us to peril
With swords raised to the sky
We have fought, and we have won
Track Name: On the Eve of War
Gardaena
How hast thou fallen
And by whose hand has
This deed been wrought

In the wake of this destruction
We must prevail

Now to stand
Against the wizards
Through darkened battles
For the memory of the Kings
Beordolf and Sigmund how we wish
You were here


We cannot lose hope
With the
Knowledge of Trygil’s plan
We must
Fight to end his evil name
Trygil will be slain
And joy will live again
In Deile Roith


Warriors
Wizards and clerics
And archers faithful
Assemble and be counted

For we must now raise an attack
On Wizard Trygil

Raise your swords
And your voices
So that the Wizards
Will fear our coming

We will take back Deile Roith
And crown a new King


We cannot lose hope
With the
Knowledge of Trygil’s plan
We must
Fight to end his evil name
Trygil will be slain
And joy will live again
In Deile Roith
Track Name: Turning the Tides
In war we are failing
In battle we are dying
When will the hero
Of lore arise and save

Trygil’s evil minions
Slay and conquer
There is no light in sight
We have battled on
For days and months now
Can we even hope to win


From the ashes of defeat
Comes a man of olden herald
Prophesied, a life to restore
Glory to our great fallen Kingdom

Power untold and strength for all of the soldiers
Ancient glory and honor are within his hands
He will deliver us from the Evil Wizards


He has come
And he will destroy
All who stand
In the way of Deile Roith

Awe-inspiring power
Rising morale
Can we yet defeat our foes
The time has come now
We shall not fail
Have we no chance to survive


From the ashes of defeat
Comes a man of olden herald
Prophesied, a life to restore
Glory to our great fallen Kingdom

Power untold and strength for all of the soldiers
Ancient glory and honor are within his hands
He will deliver us from the Evil Wizards


We will sail forever on
Through the mist and over the waves

Through the Valleys of Darkness, we ride
Onward with our swords raised high

We shall overcome this evil
And we will take hold of eternal glory

We will stand as one and win
This battle for our sacred land
Track Name: The Final Battle Cry
Ride the battle’s front
And charge the line
Of our enemies
The Wizards

Fight
For our holy right
And stand your ground
We cannot fail
We will not fail

While the battle rages on through the night
And hope seems to be out of reach
Behind the doors of the Wizards’ dark keep
Aldric has snuck to strike a

Blow to the evil ones
Who sit on the throne
And have no right
For they do not
Know true power

We will end this baneful reign
And avenge all of the slain
On this decisive battle night


Marching to the gates of the Wizards’ sanctum
Through fire and ice, ever on
We press on through this battle for righteousness
No greater cause exists


Through the plains of the open countryside
Zimar leads the remaining army
To the Wizards who have fled to
The dungeon of the castle

Now is the time for the final battle cry
While Trygil begs for his life from Aldric Daeghelm
Can’t you see the end is here
There is nothing more to fear
We’ve won back our sacred land


Marching to the gates of the Wizards’ sanctum
Through fire and ice, ever on
We press on through this battle for righteousness
No greater cause exists


And so,
First Knight Aldric Daeghelm was crowned King of Deile Roith
While Drogo Zimar ascended the Throne of Gardaena
To lead their people into peaceful, prosperous time
...or so they thought...
