Don’t expect Warhammer to start off in a time of relative peace. This isn’t Middle-earth, and living memory doesn’t have much in the way of peace, even among relatives. For a start, Chaos Marauders have been threatening the stoic warriors of Nordland for centuries, but with their plague tearing through the town of Grimmenhagen, they seem closer than ever to taking control.
Meanwhile, The Bloody Sun Boyz, the vintage band of greenskin hooligans led by the performance-enhanced Orc Grumlok and his shoulder-mounted goblin Shaman Gazbag, have taken over and vandalized Eight Peaks, traditionally dwarf country. Still hungry for bloody conquest, they’re looking to take over Karaz-A-Karak, the Dwarven capital. Why? Pretty much because they hate dwarves as much as they love fighting.
