In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Duken Onearm's army and Whiskeyjack's veteran Bridgeburners alongside their enemies of old - the forces of the Warlord Caladon Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii mages, and the Rhivi peoples of the plains. Outnumbered and mistrustful, they must get word to potential allies, including the mercenary brotherhood the Grey Swords, whose orders are to hold the besieged city of Capustan at all costs.
But ancient undead clans are also gathering. As if in answer to some primal summons, the T'lan Imass have risen. It would seem something altogether darker and more malign threatens this world. The Warrens are poisoned, and rumors abound that the Crippled God is now unchained and intent upon wreaking terrible vengeance.
Help Centre. The morning following the Battle of Culloden, Cumberland issued a written order reminding his men that "the public orders of the rebels yesterday was to give us no quarter". In the days and weeks that followed, versions of the alleged orders were published in the Newcastle Journal and the Gentleman's Journal. Today only one copy of the alleged order to "give no quarter" exists.

In any event, Cumberland's order was not carried out for two days, after which contemporary accounts report then that for the next two days the moor was searched and all those wounded were put to death. On the other hand, the orders issued by Lord George Murray for the conduct of the aborted night attack in the early hours of 16 April suggest that it would have been every bit as merciless.
The instructions were to use only swords, dirks and bayonets, to overturn tents, and subsequently to locate "a swelling or bulge in the fallen tent, there to strike and push vigorously".
While in Inverness, Cumberland emptied the gaols that were full of people imprisoned by Jacobite supporters, replacing them with Jacobites themselves. In total, common men were executed, one third of them being deserters from the British Army. Although most of those who did stand trial were sentenced to death, almost all of these had their sentences commuted to penal transportation to the British colonies for life by the Traitors Transported Act 20 Geo.

Even so, prisoners were actually released under the Act of Indemnity which was passed in June Another obtained their freedom by being exchanged for prisoners of war who were held by France. Of the total 3, prisoners recorded, nothing is known of the fate of Following up on the military success won by their forces, the British Government enacted laws further to integrate Scotland — specifically the Scottish Highlands — with the rest of Britain.
Members of the Episcopal clergy were required to give oaths of allegiance to the reigning Hanoverian dynasty. Anti-clothing measures were taken against the highland dress by an Act of Parliament in The result was that the wearing of tartan was banned except as a uniform for officers and soldiers in the British Army and later landed men and their sons.
Today, a visitor centre is located near the site of the battle. This centre was first opened in December , with the intention of preserving the battlefield in a condition similar to how it was on 16 April Since , the site of the battle has undergone topographic , geophysical , and metal detector surveys in addition to archaeological excavations. Interesting finds have been made in the areas where the fiercest fighting occurred on the government left wing, particularly where Barrell's and Dejean's regiments stood.

Finds of musket balls appear to mirror the lines of men who stood and fought. Some balls appear to have been dropped without being fired, some missed their targets, and others are distorted from hitting human bodies.
In some cases it may be possible to identify whether the Jacobites or government soldiers fired certain rounds, because the Jacobite forces are known to have used a large quantity of French muskets which fired a slightly smaller calibre shot than that of the British Army's Brown Bess. Analysis of the finds confirms that the Jacobites used muskets in greater numbers than has traditionally been thought. Not far from where the hand-to-hand fighting took place, fragments of mortar shells have been found. The recent discovery of a silver Thaler , from the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin , may however lead archaeologists to these graves.
A geophysical survey, directly beneath the spot where the coin was found, seems to indicate the existence of a large rectangular burial pit. It is thought possible that the coin was dropped by a soldier who once served on the continent, while he visited the graves of his fallen comrades.
They are also attempting to expand the land under its care to ensure the full battlefield is protected under the NTS. Another goal is to restore Leannach Cottage and allow visitors to once again tour the interior. See the following reference for source of tables . See following reference for source of table .

The sergeants of the regiment suffered worse, with seven out of ten hanged. At least seven privates were executed, some no doubt died in prison, and most of the rest were transported to the colonies. They were commanded by MacGregor of Inverenzie. It joined the Jacobite army on 27 August and served the rest of the campaign attached to MacDonald of Keppoch's Regiment.
This was a very small unit, of no more than men, and was commanded by Alexander MacDonald of Glencoe. It surrendered to General Campbell on 12 May and had suffered 52 killed, 36 wounded. Instead of a regimental standard, the regiment is said to have marched behind a bunch of heather attached to a pike. About 30 men from this unit were killed at Culloden, though both Glenmoriston and Shewglie, younger escaped. Almost all of the 87 of the men from this unit who surrendered on 4 May were transported.
Many of the men were highlanders, though most feudal levies and mercenaries — not clansmen. An intelligence report of 11 December stated that of the men, "only have joined; mostly herds and hiremen from about Strathbogie and unaquainted with the use of arms; many are pressed and intend to desert For a time the unit included some former members of the British Army. At the battle it eventually stood in the front, next to the Stewarts of Appin.
