Upset in the Brass Citadel this week as continued delays result in a conspicuously skull-sized hole in Khorne’s throne.
The Blood God, famous for his craftsmanship as well as his violence, has spent several eternities building an edifice from the skulls of fallen warriors. However bones do not last forever, and Khorne has relied on a steady supply of replacement craniums to maintain his throne, a project that now lies in jeopardy.
The causes for these delays are many and varied, but the following are seen as the major contributors:
– Diminishing numbers of Khorne worshippers, adherents instead seeking to join Ironjawz Waaaghs! or Ogor Warglutts.
– Strikes by squig herder unions, whose members are responsible for managing the Realms’ messenger squigs. Demands include longer pokin’ sticks, and a day off each year to celebrate Squigmas.
– Increased funding to the Ossiarch Bonereapers, leading to a crackdown on bone-tithe avoidance.
Faced with limited options Khorne is reportedly trying to pick between alternate, but potentially necessary, evils; allow the skull throne to diminish while things to return to normal, or instead supplement it with a coccyx couch.
