Skaven jealous, demand upgrades

After several months of watching their rivals unveil new and improved versions of their ancient heroes, the Skaven of Blight City have begun to agitate the Council of Thirteen for upgrades themselves.

“Not fair-fair,” explained a local clanrat. “Frog-thing get new chair, daemon-thing get growth-gains, while Eshin-allies look like monkey-things!”

Acting in response to the unrest, Eshin spies infiltrated Blight City’s archives, with their findings landing the Council of Thirteen in hot water. The raid revealed that although the Council previously did have the resources to advance their civilisation they squandered it all on developing different variations of Verminlord, alongside a new mount for Thanquol. Although Skyre did get a win with their Stormfiends, the long-needed upgrades for their Acolytes and weapons teams were deliberately ignored.

The Council have promised “many big-great advancements, yes-yes” in the coming months, relying on the Necroquake’s dissipation to open up access to new reserves of warpstone. Despite promises that it won’t be spent on an even bigger Boneripper for Grey Seer Thanquol, many clanrats remain unconvinced.  

Lumineth shocked, confused, at sudden doubling of army

After several months of having tightly curated armed forces the Lumineth Realm-lords have been blindsided by Teclis and Tyrion’s sudden revolution of their armies, with a bewildering array of options being provided to the Great Nations.

“It was reasonably simple before,” said a Lumineth general who spoke on condition of anonymity. “You had pikes, bows, and horses. Easy peasy. But now we have really big stationary bows, weird horses, and even swords? It’s a lot to think about.”

Protests are also arising from Lumineth hesitant to purchase the new requisition orders, pointing out that they had purchased the abridged orders only recently with many paying extra for gilded pages. The offer of a supplementary document that also contains a narrative recounting of the upcoming Shysian invasion has done little to mollify these complaints.

The twin gods have defended their decision, arguing that the slow introduction has made it easier for their children to train and arm their forces. When it was suggested that many of their leaders were finding the second wave overwhelming they refused to comment.
