Famous Khorne champion Nik Toestubber has been laid low this morning and admitted to the Varanhospital with symptoms including joint pain, fatigue, and an unusual skintone. Early diagnostics have confirmed every worshipper’s worst nightmare – iron overload due to excess blood.
Around one in ten Khorne worshippers are susceptible to the condition, which results from too much iron in the bloodstream. Causes can be genetic, but for the Blood God’s followers it is just as often caused through the absorption of victims’ blood through the skin and tongue. Suggestions that bezerkers wear shirts to reduce the incidence of the condition have been roundly ignored
Thankfully through advances in Chaotic medicine the condition is treatable through the use of regular bloodlettings. The excess blood is highly prized by daemonsmiths, who find the increased iron levels a great help in their own endeavors.
