After the [[Lich King]] [[Ner'zhul]] defeated [[Azjol-Nerub]] in the [[War of the Spider]], and gained control of [[Northrend]], he turned his attention south, to [[Kil'jaeden]]'s chosen targets: [[Quel'thalas]] and [[Lordaeron]]. Though he was trapped bodiless and confined to the [[Frozen Throne]], he could reach out telepathically across great distances to those seeking power and knowledge of [[necromancy]] - his first minions, and the beginnings of the [[Cult of the Damned]].
 
After the [[Lich King]] [[Ner'zhul]] defeated [[Azjol-Nerub]] in the [[War of the Spider]], and gained control of [[Northrend]], he turned his attention south, to [[Kil'jaeden]]'s chosen targets: [[Quel'thalas]] and [[Lordaeron]]. Though he was trapped bodiless and confined to the [[Frozen Throne]], he could reach out telepathically across great distances to those seeking power and knowledge of [[necromancy]] - his first minions, and the beginnings of the [[Cult of the Damned]].
   
Chief among the men and women who heard the Lich King's call was [[Kel'Thuzad]], archmagus of [[Dalaran]]. Forsaking his position as senior member of the [[Kirin Tor]], Dalaran's ruling council, Kel'thuzad traveled alone to Northrend. The vast [[Nerubian]] ruins left decimated by the [[War of the Spider]] confirmed his desire to ally with the Lich King. His arrival was expected, and he offered his soul to The Lich King Ner'zhul. In exchange for loyalty and obedience, Kel'Thuzad was promised immortality and power, but he remained a mortal human for his appointed task: the organization of the Cult of the Damned, which would set the stage for the Scourge's conquest of Lordaeron. The [[Archmage|Archmagus]] was old, but still very charismatic, a useful trait for amassing more and more of Lordaeron's easily-swayed citizens under the shadow of the Lich King.

For three years Kel'Thuzad worked, preaching his new religion to the masses, promising them immortality and an ideal society free of all the burdens the existing one forced upon its citizenry. Many of Lordaeron's overworked laborers and disenfranchised masses were taken in by this charismatic individual, and willingly sold themselves into service to the Lich King. Kel'Thuzad also used his fortunes and those of his fellow Cult members to taint and corrupt men in positions of power, bringing them into the Cult through favors and gifts. Eventually, many of Lordaeron's northern towns were completely under the control of the Cult of the Damned and so, it became time for the Lich King to act.
