As I have written elsewhere, Dwarves or Dwarfs as presented here are my favorite fantasy race. Their dour pride, their deep-rooted sense of honor, and their refusal to face their doom with anything I know it's a slight cheat to post a response before finishing, but having read two of the stories in this omnibus prior and grimly Dwarven tales can only be grimly enjoyed with a stoic demeanor enjoying the ones I hadn't read it was safe to say my opinion was formed before I ever opened the book.

Their dour pride, their deep-rooted sense of honor, and their refusal to face their doom with anything other than iron resolve are things I hearken to, and who doesn't love those mighty beards? Add to that their painstaking skills with craftwork that all can aspire to, as well as their insistence on looking after even the lowliest of their clans, and even the most pretentious elf-lover can grudgingly admit to respecting a well-told Dwarf tale.

And that is exactly what Misters Kyme and Thorpe present to the reader. Four stories told in the dark Warhammer tradition, which at times read more like the Elder Eddas, and not just aesthetically. The common archetypes of heroes are easily found in each story, but perhaps most obviously told in the centuries-spanning tale ofGrudgebearer , which follows the Kings of Zhufbar, specifically Throndin and his son Barundin, as they seek to put right ancient grudges, or crimes done against their people, while still leading their folk wisely and honorably.

Enter the name of the series to add the book to it. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor.

So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.


His own weapon is the rune sword Karaghul, a blade with a dragon hilt recovered from the fallen hold of Karak Eight Peaks. A relic of the Knights of the Order of the Fiery Heart, it was forged for the purpose of slaying dragons.

Gotrek and Felix

As shown in Dragonslayer, it grants him a shield from a dragon's fiery breath, as well as providing a powerful confidence when facing such a creature. As the decades pass, old acquaintances comment that Felix has not aged a day.

First shrugged off as niceties, this soon becomes fact when, in Elfslayer, Max Schreiber verifies that Felix has indeed become immortal, or as close as to make no difference.

Upon self-inspection, Felix also discovers that many of his old scars and wounds have vanished from his body. Max attributes this immortal state to various causes, from both Felix's and Gotrek's magical weapons, to some force encountered during their sojourn in the Chaos Wastes, to his passing through the wormhole in Sylvania.

Many of his diaries concerning his and Gotrek's adventures have been published by his brother, Otto. The outlandishness and impossibility of the tales in question have brought most of its readers, including Otto, to believe it to be pure fiction. Ulrika[ edit ] Ulrika Magdova is a vampire , formerly a Kislevite noblewoman and Felix's former love interest. She was daughter to Ivan Straghov, March Warden of the Border, which was the first defense against the forces of the Ruinous Powers descending from the Chaos Wastes in the north.

While still human, she was a notable swordswoman and beauty, attracting the attentions of both Felix Jaeger and Max Schreiber during the expedition to Karag Dum.

Felix won. However, due to differences in background, they began to split after the Battle of Praag, and their division compounded when Ulrika was turned into one of the bloodsucking undead by Adolphus Krieger in Sylvania.

Her transformation is one of the reasons why Felix stayed out of the Old World for two decades. She returned in Manslayer, seemingly wanting to patch things up with Felix, but once again their differences now predator and prey prevented a complete reconciliation and she abandoned Felix and Gotrek to fight fellow vampires, forced to abide her "mother's" command to kill them. Ulrika also now has her own book series which seem to chronicle her adventures between her last appearance in Vampireslayer and return in Manslayer - "Ulrika the Vampire" series, beginning with Bloodborn and continuing with Bloodforged and Bloodsworn.

She also appears in the short story The Funeral of Gotrek Gurnisson, in which she temporarily joins forces with Felix to hunt down the villains whom he mistakenly believes have killed Gotrek.

Max swiftly established himself as a powerful ally, and a bitter rival with Felix for Ulrika's affections. Max is an avid scholar into the powers of Chaos, having lost his family to beastmen as a child, and has made it his mission in life to destroy Chaos wherever he found it: however, he was expelled from the Imperial College of Magic for displaying too great an interest in the subject.

However, Max's knowledge proves invaluable as the group find themselves in battle with the forces of Chaos. Specifically, he was originally written to be a Gold wizard but this was later retconned in 'Elfslayer' to being a wizard of the Light College and using the Wind of Hysh. Kat[ edit ] Kat full name Katerina is a young woman who serves as Felix's current love interest.

Gotrek and Felix first encountered her in Trollslayer when she was a little girl, the only survivor of a beastmen attack led by a female Chaos Champion. As the story unfolded, it turned out Kat was the Chaos Champion's daughter the woman having been raped in her youth , who sought to murder the child and become a Daemon Prince , but the champion was killed by Kat, who stabbed her in the back with her own sword as the woman tried to kill Felix.

After the battle, Kat begged Gotrek and Felix to let her go with them, but the pair refused, knowing a child wouldn't be safe travelling with them, and left her in the care of a woodsman and his family.

However, they encountered Kat again in Shamanslayer many years later, now a woman in her late twenties and a deadly warrior, driven to kill all beastmen to avenge the murder of her adopted family. As they journeyed together, Felix and Kat began to feel affection for each other; while Felix initially had misgivings about falling in love with a woman half his age, whom he'd known as a child, after rescuing Kat from bandits who'd abducted her, Felix accepted what he felt, and the pair became lovers.

They survived the battle against the beastmen and Heinrich Kemmler's zombie horde, though Kat was left behind accidentally as they tried to flee Castle Reikguard, and only just managed to avoid death by starvation before the Reikland army arrived, though she still had enough strength to assist in the final battle, distracting Kemmler long enough for Gotrek to reach him. Other Dwarfs[ edit ] Borek Forkbeard is an ancient dwarf who is near years old, he was originally of the hold of Karag Dum where he and a group of other dwarves escaped just before the siege of Karag Dum to bring aid.

He funded the first attempted rescue mission into the Chaos Wastes in armored dwarf ground vehicles in which he, Snorri and Gotrek were the only survivors. His second and successful attempt was to fly over the waste in an airship built by Malakai Makaisson. Malakai Makaisson is a dwarf Slayer and mad genius engineer.

The creator of the Spirit Of Grungi, the great and only airship that carried the fateful expedition to Karag Dum. He has a peculiar accent similar to a Scottish brogue that makes his speech difficult for even other dwarfs to understand.

One of Gotrek's and Felix's staunchest allies, he has helped them several times when no one else would.

He is also the only known remaining living being, besides Snorri, Borek, and Gotrek and Felix, to have traversed the Chaos Marches and returned alive, with his sanity intact. Snorri Nosebiter is another Dwarf Slayer and an old friend of Gotrek. Snorri is portrayed as being courageous, but incredibly stupid. However, he doesn't let this, and the numerous jokes Gotrek and other Slayers make about his stupidity, bother him.

He is one of the few Dwarves to treat Felix with a great deal of respect, partly because of his connection to Gotrek, and as a result of the things he has seen Felix do. His most notable feature is his crest: instead of a mohawk of hair, Snorri has a row of bright red nails hammered into his skull to make his crest.

By the time of Shamanslayer, Snorri has lost much of his vitality and appears to be suffering dementia, having forgotten much of his past, including the reason he became a Slayer one of the greatest blasphemies in Dwarven society.

Snorri seeks to make a pilgrimage to a shrine of the Dwarf gods and ask for his memory back. He also suffered another major loss, losing most of his right leg to a Minotaur's axe. Rodi Balkisson is another Dwarf Slayer, whom the pair encounter in Shamanslayer. Rodi, along with Snorri and another Slayer called Argrin Crownforger, had been travelling across the Empire since the Storm of Chaos , looking for their dooms.

Rodi, being younger than most Slayers, got on Gotrek's nerves quite a great deal, as Rodi often made blunt and unsubtle comments about Gotrek's inability to find his doom after nearly twenty years a subject Gotrek is exceptionally touchy on.

After surviving the battle with the beastmen and retreating from the zombie onslaught to Castle Reikguard, Rodi played an instrumental part in the castle's defence, but in the final undead attack, Rodi elected to stay outside the walls, bluntly telling Gotrek that he believed the older Slayer cursed; none near him would die, and Rodi didn't want to be afflicted with that curse.A fact which, given the malevolent inventiveness of the Daemonsmiths in such matters, speaks much of the horrors which must abide there.

Every enemies and their misdeeds on the scrolls is then recited at every quarter of the century by a chaplain during the Rites of Howling with the Chapter Master decided the next target for the great hunt. She also appears in the short story The Funeral of Gotrek Gurnisson , in which she temporarily joins forces with Felix to hunt down the villains whom he mistakenly believes have killed Gotrek.

Noticeable marks on exterior but item is overall complete and not falling apart. Dwarf players are sick of using the same book since the end of 6th edition, and many of them and their opponents are well and truly tired of the lack of variety in the list and the extremely static play style that it basically demanded. The cold river enters the city from the north and it is put to use cooling the huge forges of the Chaos Dwarf Sorcerers, powering the steam-driven engines, and flushing the effluent of industry out to the south.

It was a large fortified city that was effectively the capital of the old southern empire. The roaring of furnaces, groaning of huge wheels and grinding of arcane machines fills the oily air.

However, the count's son killed his undead parents, thwarting the ritual, while Gotrek severely injured Krell and wounded Kemmler before the necromancer used magic to escape.
