BANE OF THE LICHE LORD
All hell has broken loose in the Forest of Tar. Thousands of demonic Feeders consume everything in their path, but top of the menu is dwarf flesh.
Nils has been captured by the Liche Lord Otto Blightey but would sooner be dead, and Nameless is on the run, carrying a warning of doom to the last of his people.

With the sentient Axe of the Dwarf Lords as petrified as everyone else, the last hope of the dwarves lies in the hands of a shapeshifting assassin with a reputation for self-preservation at all costs.

The Nameless Dwarf - a pariah, untouchable, the most cursed of dwarven kind.

3. Revenge of the Lich
The survivors of the slaughter at Arx Gravis flee their ravine city, leaving its walkways and canals awash with blood.
Convinced there can be no atonement for what he h
