Prince of Nothing

The Great Ordeal was a military campaign launched by the Aspect-Emperor of the Three Seas, Anasûrimbor Kellhus, against Golgotterath. Its aim was to prevent the Consult from resurrecting the No-God.[1]

The total number of men when the host set off numbered at more than 300,000. A quarter of these are said to have been lost at Irsûlor, another quarter or more at Dagliash, and only one third remaining after the catastrophe at Dagliash, due to the rest having succumbed to disease or starvation.[2] By the time it reached Golgotterath, it numbered at only around 30,000.
