Slaves Are Plenty Useful

Well met!

What to do?
What to dooo?

What shall we do with the slaves aplenty?
What shall we do with the slaves so dirty?
What can they do?
And for what can we use them?
That's the bloody question.

But you, friend, will find out,
that slaves are plenty useful!

You can ship them,
you can whip them,
you can eat them,
you can beat them,
you can weigh them,
you can flay them,
you can crush them,
you can slush them!

So you see, my friend, that slaves are plenty useful!

You can turn them,
you can burn them,
you can hide them,
you can ride them,
you can mind them
you can bind them,
you can grind them,
you can't find them!

Aye indeed, the slaves are plenty useful!

I have never really imagined chaos dwarfs as a society or culture before, it is weird for me to think about chaos dwarf children dancing around and singing but at the same time very interesting. Now I am wondering what kind of education a chaos dwarf child receives, do chaos dwarf schools exist? What job are open to a typical chaos dwarf? What rights and responsibilities does a chaos dwarf have? What is a typical chaos dwarfs view on the relationship between the state and individual? Thinking about Chaos dwarf society is more interesting than a normal worldview and culture class.

If I would make a guess I think that Chaos Dwarf society will be very martial, and kind of leaning towards a Spartan ideal. The reason I think so is due to their reliance on masses of slaves, the fear and prospect of a slaver uprising would always be there and to counter slave uprisings the Chaos Dwarfs will need to have a larger percentage of their population as soldiers, or as possible soldiers, than a "normal" society would. Thus I would think that the Chaos Dwarfs would be at least as martial as the Dwarfs further west and that basic soldiering is an obligatory part of the education.

To that I suppose that one can base the rest off how one imagines the Chaos Dwarfs. I like to think the Chaos Dwarfs still have clans that exists in a patron-client system with the clans with sorcerer-priests at the top, a bit similar to Republican Rome with its patricians clans and masses of clients supporting these patricians.
