I keep hearing about an unspeakable horror and kara, worse that skaven and goblins lurking down there” yet, nothing about what it actually is. To extend this huge set of doors, counters and iarak, here are some new karakk designed in the same way. The nature of the Black Water crater made the perfect location for the Dwarfs to mine Gromril – the star-iron which Dwarfs used to forge legendarily solid armour and razor-sharp weapons.

These are done in the face of fierce greenskin and rat attacks. Hope you like it: The Skaven and Goblins could only be held at bay for so long and soon the mines and ore convoys came under increasing attack.

City was abandoned and is now known as Crag Mere. Leaderless and ever more pressed the smaller Clans began to leave Karak Varn until those that remained were overrun by Skaven. Herre you’ll find the second PDF booklet with no less than 13 sheets full of tiles in A3 format.

You’ll find Braziers, Spining blades traps, choke traps, a secret set of stairs hidden in a sarcophagus, some trap-trigger squares, a ladder to upper level and pits with rope bridges.

The first Dwarf Book has more details My new booklet of Dungeon Dressing is about to be finished. Engineers have built many cunning devices to enable the Dwarfs to probe the depths, even those underwater, where the richest and as yet unplumbed workings can be found.
