The Greedless Man and the Mad Fimir, by Uhr-Kulmbizharr
Once upon a time, there was a greedless man with an axe. One day, when wandering to an outpost, he rescued a captive from vile Greenskins, and was offered all that which the captive owned:
"Here! The Greenskins robbed me of everything but this hidden pouch. There are ten silver hooves in it. Take them, you have deserved them!" insisted the rescued captive.
"Keep them, lest you will starve. I do not need them," replied the greedless man.
After that, he wandered on towards the outpost. But when the greedless man came to a narrow gorge, his path was blocked by a mad Fimir hermit.
"Fifty silver hooves! Cluck! Fifty silver hooves! Moo! You will pay fifty silver hooves to pass, or I will bash in your skull," frothed the mad Fimir and raised a giant bronze mace.
"But I have only forty silver hooves... Damn!" cursed the greedless man, and was mashed into gory pulp by the mad Fimir hermit. For such is the fate of those who would lack greed in their weak hearts.

* Greed is a virtue in the Dawi Zharr mindset. To the Blacksmiths of Chaos, greed is proof of a will to dominate and a craving for more, a drive for conquest and toil. Meek helpfulness and lack of greed are viewed as serious character flaws.
