Rebellion in the Mortal Realms this week as Morathi-Khaine, leader of the Daughters of Khaine, rebels against the guidelines laid down by Sigmar.
“The Thunder God’s draconian rules have limited us for too long,” declared Morathi at a Hag Queen conference in Hagg Nar. “Other factions are making their own way when building their militaries, it is time for us to do the same!”
Tapping into the magicks of Ulgu, Morathi-Khaine has undertaken a ritual to clone herself several times, creating a fearsome force of supreme sorceresses and reptilian monstrosities. Witch Aelf unions, who were already concerned at their increasing sidelining from battles, are said to have accepted the move with weary resignation.
There are fears in Azyr that Morathi’s decision could ignite an arms race and quickly grow out of hand. Rumours of Archaon the Everchosen searching for an enchanted mirror are already sparking concern. On the other hand, Brokk Grungsson’s threats to create a ‘Hundred Magnate Army’ have been met with shrugs and disinterest. Only time will tell where this new era will lead us.
