Seeing as it will most likely make your TG faster than your other units and you don't want your Slann up ahead you'll probably only use this inch to charge.
Lichbone Pennant — A magical standard for the same price as the identically functioning Obsidian Trinket. Why not? Since the Slann is probably the general already the not using the Inspiring Presence is a non-issue. Banner of Eternal Flame — You never know when your Temple Guard will need to assault a building or fight something with Regeneration.
Arcane Items Lizardmen are a magical army, so all the Arcane Items can help us. The real limiting factor is that we can only take one arcane item per wizard. Book of Ashur — Useful but it costs a lot for what it does.
Good when your magic strategy is based on lots of cheap spells. Feedback Scroll — You need to have a foe fond of casting ueberspells from wizards without Ward Saves for this item to work. To get maximum mileage out of this spell you need to play this when a player throws five or six dice at a spell. In a Storm of Magic game, this Scroll becomes Green because there is actually call for mountains of dispel dice mid-phase. Power Scroll — If the Slann dies we probably lost the game.
A Slann tempting an Irresistible Force casting is thus a bad risk to take. Wand of Jet — A little weak, but it is a rarity in that you can decide to use it AFTER making your casting attempt rather than before which can safe you from whiffing a magic phase. In Storm of Magic it becomes Green because it can help you roll more dice to get big Cataclysm spells off. If the Slann is caddying a different item, you can always give this to a Skink Priest. The loss of a Skink Priest is usually well worth avoiding a poor magic phase.
With only a 1 in three chance of wounding an enemy wizard per spell you lose, this is NOT worth taking up a precious Arcane Item slot. A Skink Priest is not important enough to eat up their Arcane Item Slot with this; they should be caddying something more proactive. Dispel Scroll — Knocks out an enemy spell, no questions asked.
This item is pretty much standard issue for all armies, not just Lizardmen. Power Stone — Not useless, but Lizardmen generally have better options to generate extra power dice. Channeling Staff — Channeling Staff plus Harmonic Convergence is a golden combo that will on average net you a bonus power or dispel die every single phase.
This item is also Oldblood only. In a normal game, stick with your normal wizards. An Unorthodox Saurus Oldblood can get some mileage out of this. Healing Potion — Too expensive for what it does. A Slann-less army won't have any characters with enough wounds for this to matter.
Featherfoe Torc — Even if you are facing a lot of flyers, it just seems too expensive to be worth it. Ruby Ring of Ruin — A nice item to give a Skink Priest since he should be able to get some good shots in a Skirmisher bunker.
In small points games I give the Ruby Ring a Purple rating since a level two Skink priest with the Ruby Ring can make sure none of your 2d6 power dice go to waste.
Terrifying Mask of EEE! No one expects a LM character on foot to be forcing a Terror test on them. Potion of Strength - Handy if you need your Saurus to open a can of whup-ass against a steam tank or something similar, but you are generally better off giving a Saurus a Strength boosting weapon. This is good for Skink Chiefs though.
Potion of Toughness — For this points cost you can get a more reliable defensive talisman that is always active. You really only need to save a single wound every other game to pay for itself. Some people think 5 points is a worthy price to give Carnosaurs and character ridden Stegadons a 1 in 6 chance of surviving a cannon ball unscathed.
Potion of Foolhardiness — For hardly any points your Saurus character can get an extra attack on the charge. Potion of Speed — It covers a weakness of Saurus characters and is inexpensive to take.
It was they w ho ordered the overgrown Seeing their peril, the Elves drew their own weapons and jungle cut back to develop the roads between temple-cities. T h e Temple G u ard instinctively protected their master and h a lf o f the Elves were cut down. T h e H ig h A nd so, over the years, the L izardm en, once the most E lves captain led a desperate fighting retreat dow n the steps advanced civilisation to w alk the w orld, regressed to a and through the vast city gates.
T h ey were allowed to escape, primitive state. T h e O ld O nes took on the aspect o f distant b u t even so, only the captain and a handful o f w arriors ever gods, w orshipped by the L izardm en and called upon in times m ade it back to their ship. M an y m onths later, wracked by o f need by the Skinks.
T h ey began to make bloody sacrifices disease, the captain brought w ord back to the Phoenix King, to attract the attention o f their missing gods. T h e relics that Bel Shanaar, o f the cold-blooded creatures o f the jungle.
It they collected upon the orders o f the Slann were held in w ould be many years before the Elves o f U lth u an dared to w onder; all hope o f understanding the technology o f their set foot in L ustria again. In time, the other younger races discovered the hidden continent o f L u stria and attem pted to penetrate its depths. O thers succeeded races to set foot upon L u stria were the H ig h Elves.
O nly in plundering outlying sites, stealing away treasures the m ost learned o f E lven mages had even an inkling o f the sufficiently valuable to establish entire empires in the lands beings that dwelt in the southern jungles, and they expected from whence they came. T h e com ing o f these races was, to find only ruins.
O n a m angrove-choked shore on the to a degree, predicted. W here once the Slann had been isthm us o f Pahuax, a graceful ship pierced the steamy veil. Skink watchers noted the intruders before they had m arched a hu n d red paces. W h en runners arrived to deliver w ord to w hat rem ained o f the tem ple-city o f Pahuax, the M age-P riest H uinitenuchli was roused from his recuperative slumber.
H e was still recovering from the battle o f X u h u a L ake, and had yet to fully regain his previous vigour. D ispleased that his slum ber was disturbed, he uttered a num ber o f orders to his attendants that were indecipherable, yet undeniably offensive, before lapsing back into sleep. Shorn o f their m asters wisdom, the Skinks were forced to deal with the H ig h Elves as best they could. A s such, they adopted a w atch to see w hat the fair-skinned trespassers w ould do.
T h e H ig h Elves, sickened by the cloying heat, had already suffered losses to bloodwasps, piranha-lizards and the jungle itself. A fter twenty days, their captain led only a score o f survivors to stand in the shadow o f the bronze gates o f the great city o f Pahuax. By this time, L o rd H u initenuchli had awakened. H e was carried to the Star C ham ber at the apex o f the G olden P yram id w here he ordered the intruders to be brought before him , so that he m ight look upon them and determ ine their place in the G reat Plan.
W ith proper ceremony, the Elves were b rought into Pahuax. T hey walked w hat rem ained o f the citys processional avenue. E ven in its ru ined state, the Elves gazed in awe at the majesty o f the architecture and the hulking Temple G uard that flanked them.
T hey clim bed the steep stairs to the top o f the G olden Pyram id, their skin tingling from the powerful confluence o f the geomantic nexus. C om plete silence fell, as H uinitenuchli appeared not to register their presence. C haquas Slann M age-P riests were alarmed, sending war Sotek was a new god, an upstart god o f the Skinks w ho has patrols to sweep the nearby jungle. South o f the temple-city now risen to reign as the pre-em inent god o f the L izardm en, they discovered a vile new race that had infested the nearby eclipsing m uch worship o f the mysterious O ld O nes.
T hey were rat-m en that walked upright and bore the taint o f corruption. T h e Skaven were already A m ongst the sacred plaques o f C haqua there existed a established in L ustria; the pox-ridden C lan Pestilens, disease- passage not found in the inscriptions o f any other temple-city. A fter harsh skirmishes, the a cataclysmic invasion o f L ustria by tw o-legged verm in.
It Skinks returned bearing Skaven captives. T h e Slann knew said the ruination w ould last centuries and m ust be borne. It these twisted beings were not part o f the G reat P lan and said foretold o f the fall o f many temple-cities, including C haqua, so. T h e Skaven were to be studied in hopes o f finding a cure and the spreading o f a terrible plague. However, this Tim e for their entropic maladies. However, unbeknow nst to the o f the R odent w ould be bro u g h t to an end w hen the m ighty L izardm en, the captives bro u g h t som ething else to Chaqua.
Sotek w ould appear, and his com ing w ould be heralded by the forked tongue o f the serpent. T h e tem ple-city was soon fully in the grip o f plague, and even the M age-P riests showed the unm istakable signs. A careful analysis required m onths contagion the distant gleam ing o f a heavenly portent. A s the o f study, and in the m eantim e, thousands o f Skinks sickened light in the sky grew stronger, its tw in tails began to look and died. E ven worse, the spaw ning pools were infected, like the tongue o f an enorm ous serpent.
W h en the light was as it was not fully-form ed Skinks that em erged out o f the visible even in the daytime, the M age-P riests succum bed to their maladies. T h e rem aining Temple G u ard bore their masters into the pyram ids, sealing them from within. So passed the venerable M age-P riests o f C haqua. T h e greatest o f their num ber was Those few races that encounter Lizardmen and lice to tell o f Tehenhauin, w ho recovered the plaques relating to Sotek it find them an alien and incomprehensible race - utterly cold and carried them at the head o f a great colum n o f survivors and devoid o f compassion.
Like wild beasts, the Lizardmen are leaving C haqua. H e sought to w arn all L izardm en o f the instinctive and savage.
They are able to slaughter every last one im pending danger and rally them for revenge. That changed against the Skaven. H e claimed that the Serpent G o d w ould rise to deliver the L izardm en from plague and rat-spaw n, b u t the While superstitious acts have gained in popularity since the go d could only become manifest if given his proper due loss o f the O ld Ones, these were taken to horrific new levels and as paym ent Sotek dem anded millions o f ratm en to be with the coming o f the new god Sotek.
Inspired by Tehenhauin, sacrificed in his name. Skinks took to this new cult, b u t the Skink Priests led the ritualistic slaughter o f untold thousands M age-P riests held it in disdain, refusing to acknowledge ofratmen. These Skaven were sacrificed in horrific fashion - Sotek, for no m ention o f his nam e could be found in sometimes thrown alive into writhing pits o f serpents, other any other o f the ancient plaques.
T h is disbelief became times split open and choice organs proffered to the heavens. All across executioner. It is recorded thatKroq-Gar, a mighty Saurus L ustria, Skaven armies em erged from the underground, leader, has personally delivered the killing strike to over a b u rsting forth to overrun outposts, ruins and even fully thousand Skaven warlords since the Rise o f Sotek. Entire temple- occupied temple-cities. For the most part, the inscrutable Slann Mage-Priests and bloodshed.
As the Slann m editated on the right course o f leave such barbaric practices alone, although they could no action, it was Tehenhauin who rose up to lead the L izardm en. Skaven-slaying and grow ing the power o f the Serpent G od - became very popular am ongst the Skinks. E very single Slann was conveyed to Itza, w here they num erous. N either side showed the slightest mercy towards gathered in solemn convocation. Tehenhauin, the P rophet o f the other. Screeching Skaven hordes threw themselves upon Sotek, was sum m oned to speak before the Slann, although the tem ple-cites, while Skink war-parties scoured the jungle, by their orders his w ords were not recorded.
N one but those seeking out entrances to the ratm ens un d erg ro u n d lairs. T h e Skaven were blasted into ashes by the thousands. Tehenhauin exhorted his there were still many signs o f their m alignant passing.
T h e followers to capture and sacrifice m ore o f the cursed verm in. T h e w arrens beneath Q uetza Serpent G od swelled. A lthough the com ing o f Sotek was rem ained tainted beyond redem ption. Swarms o f serpents foretold by prophecy and heralded by the comet, Tehenhauin g uard ed the twisting tunnels, b u t no L izardm en could set claimed it was still necessary to g ran t the new god many foot therein and survive the plagues that still lingered there.
H enceforth, Q u etza w ould be called the D efiled and left to the jungle, although Skink patrols assured nothing escaped A fter a century o f open battle, the w ar reached its bloody in or out o f that cursed region. T h e long war had instilled climax. A lthough he led his host to many victories in that in the L izardm en a cold contem pt for the twisted ratm en time, it was the battle o f G wakm ol C rater w here Tehenhauin that w ould long endure.
H av in g taken each oth ers measure, caused the m ost slaughter. T here, so m any cow ering Skaven the two races w ould clash many more times. W henever were captured that their long colum ns took days to pass as the L izardm en and Skaven face each other, Sotek and the the L izardm en herded them deeper into the jungle.
U p o n H o rn e d Rat, the verm inous god o f the Skaven, enact once the crum bling altar o f some long-lost and forgotten god, more their eternal struggle. E ven in their deepest trances, the Tehenhauin began the m ost potent cerem ony he had yet led. Slann still listen for the gnaw ing below.
So many Skaven were slain that their streams o f blood ran into the River A m axon, tu rn in g it crimson. W hile the tw in T h e L izardm en no longer stood upon the cusp o f a new tailed comet filled the sky, th roughout the jungles a w rithing era, bu t had fully entered it. T his was to be an age o f blood, carpet o f snakes crawled forth. From that day onward, the sacrifice, and the worship o f savage and inscrutable gods. T h e many armies o f ratm en retreated back to their last rem aining stronghold, the ruins beneath Q uetza.
M u sterin g into a single horde, the Plague L o rd s led their clan in a breakout attem pt. Suffering enorm ous losses, they pierced the encircling L izardm en and fought their way many hundreds o f miles to the coast. Every step was contested, for Tehenhauin strove for nothing less than total annihilation o f the vile ratmen. T h e final battle was fought upon the vitrified shores o f Fum ing Serpent Island. T here, the Skaven attem pted to flee the continent, for L o rd N u rglitch had seen enough o f L ustria and hoped to establish a new base in the Southlands.
By tricking a quarter o f his arm y into perform ing a sacrificial delaying action, the rest o f the ratm en deserted their kin and sailed eastwards on a ram shackle fleet. W h a t happened next is the stu ff o f legend. W ith a m enacing hiss, the Skinks claim that a serpent o f unim aginable size, none other than Sotek himself, rose from the bubbling volcano.
A ccompanied by slithering snake-spawn, the Serpent G od plunged into the sea in pursuit o f the fleeing Skaven. Such is the m yth o f Sotek. W ith the Skaven defeated, the Slann M age-Priests could no longer ignore the power o f the new Skink god.
T h e m ost prolific raiders were the D a rk Elves o f N aggaroth. Yet a new era was underway, and the younger races were U sin g their far-seeing ability, the M age-P riests had watched increasingly draw n to the L izardm ens lands, covetous the civil w ar on U lth u an and had long pondered its m eaning. T h e L izardm en had scant contact with any Elves following the disastrous A num ber o f these intrusions were lone raids, o f little concern encounter at Pahuax.
T h e Slann M age-P riests had, at first, to the Slann. T hey used such opportunities to observe the allowed the D a rk Elves to enter L ustria unopposed, or younger races. W hile M age-P riests were wholly obsessed rather, not faced by the L izardm en themselves the ju n g les with the discovery and protection o f the ancient plaques natural defences were unavoidable.
In this way the Slann and sacred sites, they were dismissive o f golden trinkets or hoped to gain insight on the E lves intentions. W h at the baubles. T h u s, the m ost tum bledow n, vine-choked ru in in M age-P riests saw only served to confirm their opinion that the depths o f the wilderness m ight be u n d er heavy guard, the younger races had deviated far from the G reat Plan.
It while jew el-encrusted statues o f purest gold were wholly was their shared telepathic determ ination that any contact abandoned to the jungle.
T h e ir Skink underlings were far w ith such a race o f creatures could only lead to conflict. W h en denied T h e D a rk Elves were arriving in L u stria in larger forces their wont, the boldest leaders o f their kin d fabricated excuses since their discovery o f the Black Way, an u n derground to attack invaders, tolerating no others in their domain.

N one o f the invaders could stand before the the desecration o f the M o n u m en t o f Izzatal and the Elven m ight o f a fully deployed Saurus host, b u t these larger-scale attem pt to capture the Skink Priests from the floating tem ple attacks upon L ustria shook the lethargy from the Slann o f Chotec, b u t perhaps the m ost dam aging o f the D a rk E lf M age-Priests.
T h e w orld was changing again.
Even as the D ark Elves recover a particular item; gold and jewels did not concern the hauled their plunder through the Black Way, the M age- L izardm en, though they represented a fortune. Priest Tepec-Inzi o f Itza was startled awake, roused from a decades-long trance. H e sensed the ramifications o f the Star A nd so Skeggi survived, in time becom ing a prosperous Stela in the w rong hands.
A cting in great haste, the M ag e- base from which the m en o f the north w ould launch m any Priest m ustered an arm y and transported it all the way to the ventures.
A lthough raiding parties that in tru d ed deep into grey shores o f the A shen C oast intercepting the D ark Elves the jungles never returned, those that stuck to the coastlines as they em erged from the Black Way. T h e w onders, and treasures, o f the great temple-cities o f the interior o f L ustria rem ained T he battle that ensued was rem arkable for its ferocity, for the hidden.
O n the orders o f the Slann M age-Priests, the D ark Elves had no intention o f being cheated o f their prize.

Strange stirrings not sensed for millennia the D ark Elven weapon rem oved from the m ighty S aurus disturbed the m editations o f the M age-Priests, echoes from blood-slicked form. T h e Star Stela was returned to its the distant past reverberating from the m ind o f one Slann to rightful place in the tem ple-city o f Itza, where henceforth it another.
Chaos once more walked upon the shores o f L ustria, w ould be protected by the Temple G uard, lest any attem pt this time carried in the souls o f the men o f the north.
Furtherm ore, all D a rk E lf raids into L ustria from that time onwards were to be m et in force, and Skink W h a t awakened the Slann to the re-em erging threat o f Chaos patrols were assigned to scout deep into the Black Way. W hen L o rd Z huls Skink attendants considered from N orsca.

So fierce was the D aem on attack that they cut down h alf plates shifted beneath the hum an encam pm ent. A terrible the reptilian w arriors and w ould have swept them away earthquake shattered the region, reducing Cadavo to ruins.

Yet his blood was beyond number. P erhaps Sotek, or the O ld O nes themselves, stirred, and his slum bers were not again so deep. T here, they entered the topm ost D aem on incursion since the G reat Catastrophe came to cham ber and assailed the w ounded D aem on Prince, their L ustria.
Its leader was SlaaU laan, a D aem on referred to venom overcom ing even th at unnatural creature. W ith their in ancient stone tablets as the nether-thing o f the second leader gone, the D aem on arm y vanished completely.
SlaaU laan was am ongst the m ost destructive and vile o f fiends d u rin g the G reat Catastrophe and had been At the very m om ent the D aem on Prince succum bed, L o rd responsible for the capture o f m any M age-Priests, all o f Z hul gave a feeble croak and perished.

Chaos was no longer invading L u stria only through its m utated offspring or the stained souls o f the younger races. O nly L o rd Tenuchli, not be roused. T h e great L o rd M azd am u n d i, the oldest subordinate M age-P riest to the great L o rd H uinitenuchli, Slann still alive, was especially groggy and his Skink Priests could be awakened. A ccompanied by Chakax, the Prim e despaired o f ever wholly w aking their exalted charge.
It took G uardian o f the City o f M ists, L o rd Tenuchli led an a spectacular display o f greed and hubris to finally impel expedition to the Pillars o f U nseen Constellations and there L o rd M azdam un d i to a fully awoken state. O n three separate occasions, E l Cadavo, a m ercenary captain, T h e battle that ensued was a one-sided massacre, for the established a settlem ent upon the Isthm us o f Pahuax, always Saurus w arriors were made sluggish by the arcane energies nam ing it Cadavo after himself.
E ach time, Skink patrols that flowed forth from the corrupted site. SlaaU laan led the eagerly sent back w ord and the Skink Priests climbed slaughter-filled charge and strode am ongst the L izardm en, high onto the G reat Pyram id o f H exoatl. T here, L o rd snipping o ff heads and striking down whole ranks at a time, M azdam undi reclined - slum ped in concentration, his eyes while the Saurus struggled to raise their weapons, so sapped glazed and his prodigious tongue lolling.
N one o f those were they o f strength. In scant m om ents, only L o rd Tenuchli wakings w ent well, b u t each ended with the groggy Slann rem ained, with Chakax immobile by his side. It was like a Stegadon tail swatting away a bloodwasp. N one SlaaU laan charged the Prim e G uardian, believing him believed the hum ans w ould be so foolish as to return.
As SlaaU laan neared, Chakax exploded into settlem ent again, L o rd M azd am u n d is eyes opened wide violent motion, pulping the D aem on into a steam ing mass for the first time in ages. H is contem plations had now been o f bubbling daemonic ichor. So L o rd M azd am u n d i made his preparations and blast aim ed at L o rd Tenuchli. Chakax saved the Slann from read the constellations, learning that he was destined to be instant death by stepping in front o f part o f the blast, yet awoken yet again unless he took m atters into his own hands.
L o rd Tenuchli was badly wounded, his throne crashing to T h e M age-P riest ordered his throne placed upon the back o f the ground. W ith SlaaU laans death, the daemonic host the largest Stegadon and m arched to meet the intruders. W ith orders to stay by his M ag e-P riests side, L o rd M azdam un d i was determ ined to see the settlement Chakax could only stand immobile, unable to seek help. A destroyed once and for all, as a w arning to all those who cycle o f the moon passed before a patrol found them and w ould dare invade the realm o f the L izardm en.

Priests battle in the ether against foes that w ould expand the Realm o f Chaos over the entire world. For the next few hours, Tettoeko chittered out high-pitched com m ands, all o f which were followed to the letter by the It was not coincidence that as the strongest surge o f mystical army, and each manoeuvre came ju s t in tim e to blu n t a energy seen in millennia erupted out o f the north, the largest forthcom ing Skaven attack or counter some devious trick horde o f m ortal servants o f Chaos invaded the northern o f the ratm en that was otherwise destined to overtax the reaches o f the O ld W orld.

Soon, the smell o f burnt Sorcerers with unlim ited powers, as well as beset by the full rat filled the batdefield.
A gain and again, the outnum bered m ight o f the D aem on legions. L izardm en staved o ff defeat with timely counter-attacks, each tim e m ustering the ideal retaliation.

T h e Slann leant their own efforts to form often causing a chain reaction o f explosions that ran down the m ighty magical bulw arks around the E lven spell, helping to Skaven lines as further diabolical devices burst into flames.
To date, the H ig h E lven L orem asters rem ain unaware W ith the im m ediate threats stymied for the m om ent, o f this mystical aid, though perhaps the wisest o f them Tettoeko closed his eyes and drew upon the W inds o f M agic, suspect that a pow er other than their own is also at work.
W ith a Skink patrols had long watched the boundaries o f Q uetza, thunderous im pact, the com et fell to earth, collapsing the the Defiled City, g uarding against the return o f the Skaven.

By his m ighty deed, Tettoeko w on the battle and steered the fate o f the L izardm en to victory w here their defeat had T h e arm y approached the Defiled City, Tettoeko at its head, seemed inevitable. However, the A strom ancer scried the m ounted atop his stone palanquin, when suddenly he relayed stars, and the message was unequivocal: Dutifully, the Saurus shifted strong.
A vast netw ork o f tunnels was revealed to Tettoeko; from their m arching colum ns into fighting ranks and none far beneath the surface o f the earth, it stretched across the too soon. M om ents later, the gro u n d caved in and a tide o f world, and each passage was choked with malevolent verm in filthy ratm en erupted from below. T he Skaven had returned kind. L e d by their loathsome god, they were com ing to to L ustria, and in num bers beyond counting.
W ere it not for L ustria; indeed, many o f their agents were already in place. Tettoekos foresight, the L izardm en cohort w ould have been T h e L izardm en m ust ready themselves for another w ar instantaneously surrounded and overwhelmed. D eep in the innerm ost as the M age-Priests detected a subtle ripple in the geomantic cham bers o f the structure, the Skink O racle found a plinth web and a straining o f the G reat W arding.
T h e spirit-form s w hereupon foul sacrifices had recently taken place. T h ere also o f the Slann traced the lines o f disturbance until they reached was a scattering o f sacred plaques; the relic crypts had been the Spear o f the G ods, a m ighty colum n o f glittering crystal opened in the barbarians quest for treasures, b u t they had rising a mile into the sky from the storm y waters o f the Sea o f not recognised the glyphs or the inherent value in the stone Squalls.
From this vantage point, the Slann determ ined the tablets. T he O racle, however, did - instantly identifying that source o f the trouble lay in the Turtle Isles, a thousand mile- these were a segm ent o f the G reat P lan o f the O ld O nes long chain o f islands skirting the w est coast o f Lustria. To find out more, the Slann sent out an expedition o f T erradon R iders, w hich were joined by a Skink O racle. It was not hard to web. T h e M age-Priests could not distinguish a source, pinpoint the disturbance; an incandescent pillar o f light rose and those Slann not engaged in studying the newly found miles into ominously sw irling clouds.
At the base, the O racle plaques sought out that w hich was increasingly p utting discovered a ziggurat o f purest gold. A site o f g reat power pressure on the arcane sentinels that helped keep the power in the days o f the O ld O nes, this once-sacred nexus had o f Chaos at bay.

Yet it had not gone undetected by the D a rk G ods, northlands sought out ancient waystones. Some sites, like the w ho had sent their m inions to befoul it.

W ith its corruption, the G olden Z iggurat down the standing stones, rededicating them to their own was fully unlinked from the geom antic web, and the spells dark gods. T h e effect on the geomantic web was felt keenly, weaving together the G reat W arding grew a fraction weaker.
It was clear to the Slann that Chaos was ascendant, and they out the sun.
