Chaos Dwarfs Big Names !Parish 02-26-2015

Hello Guys !

I was just wondering, how many "Big Names" do we have ? !

I made a quick list of the one I found/remembered:

Astragoth: Alive
Drazhoath the Ashen: Alive
Ghorth the Cruel: Alive ?
Zhatan the Black: Alive ?

I was wondering. Where do they sit in the Chaos Dwarf Hierarchy ? I know that Astragoth is called "High Priest of Hashut" but does this title make him the absolute ruler? I know that there are some kind of "clans" affiliated to a specific Sorcerer but do we have a proper leader?

If you have other names in mind add them to the list !!

Every single name from official material is one that wiki list (expect one that I haven't updates with from a recent black library end times novel)

Thanks !

I don't know how I did that But I already found that page and somehow missed all the bottom part.

Still we have no proper clue about a real leader for our race I guess Sad

I don't think there's any one single leader - it's not stated in any official fluff, but I think it'd be more like Republican Rome where there was no king, supreme leader, ruler or whatever, but unofficialy whoever had the most political clout/power shaped policy and effectively was leader.  Eg during one of Julius Caeser's consulships, his co-consul was so weak politically/got out-manoevered by Caeser and his political allies that a common joke at the time was that ordinances, bills, etc were signed by the consuls 'Julius and Caeser'.  I can easily see a similar thing happening with Chaos Dwarfs whereby the various fortresses and minor cities have a single ruler and there being lords of the various 'districts' of Zharr-Naggrund and each is tied to others via pacts, alliances, etc with the 'power bloc' headed by Astragoth being the most powerful/influential making him de facto leader and his position as head Sorcerer-Prophet allows him to shape religious doctrine similar to the Pope re: the Catholic Church.

You'll have to nag Admiral into writing some stuff on the subject - it's as close as we'll get to official fluff at present, and probably a hell of a lot better to boot.
