Kharadron Overlords

From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Kharadron Overlords are a militaristic, mercantile society of Duardin detached from the other branches that populate the Mortal Realms. They treat war and trade as only a means to amass gold and the precious aether-gold that is their society's lifeblood, holding their sky-ports aloft, fuelling their sky-fleets and powering their elaborate armor. They are all are guided by the Kharadron Code.[1]

Sky-ports

The six most powerful are all located in Realm of Chamon where the most abundant sources of aether-gold can be found:[3]

  • Barak-Mhornar, The City of Shadow: Hidden in dark mists and with a reputation for shady deals, piracy and "innovative" interpretation of the Code.[3]
  • Barak-Nar, City of the First Sunrise: Well known for its mastery of science and technology. They also have the most delegates on the Geldraad.[3]
  • Barak-Thryng, City of the Ancestors: The most conservative of the Sky-ports and full of monuments to the ancestors and gods of the old Duardin.[3]
  • Barak-Urbaz, The Market City: A cosmopolitan centre of trade whose citizens "pursue profit with unmatched zeal." Has access to secret Realmgates and it is said the most skilled Aether-Khemists are from this sky-port.[3]
  • Barak-Zilfin, The Windswep City: Famous for its shipwrights and pilots, the 2nd largest sky-port with the best Endrineering Academies or Coghalls. Often called the "Windmasters".[3]
  • Barak-Zon, City of the Sun: First of the sky-ports and renowned for its martial pride. [3]

Organisations

There are many organisations found within the society of the Kharadron Overlords.

  • The Admirals Council: Each Sky-Port is led by the Council which preside over a body of the most powerful guilds.[3]
  • The Aether-Khemists Guild: Scientists which locate and follow the aether-gold seams.[3]
  • Arkanaut Companies: Main fighting force of the Kharadon Overlords.[3]
  • The Consortium of Cloudminers[3]
  • The Dockworkers Union[3]
  • The Endrineers Guild[3]
  • The Forecastrinator Guild [3]
  • The Logistrator Guild [3]
  • The Geldraad: The highest ruling body of the Kharadion society with delegates from the six wealthiest sky-port plus a single delegate from a different minor port every 25 shifts of the Strahlstrom.[3]
  • Grundstok Thunderers: Milita type formations to defend the ships and fleets.[3]
  • The Nav-League: A secretive order of aero-cartographers.[3]
  • Trommraad: "The Bearded Council" Informal group of the eldest or wisest in a group.[3]

Sky-Fleets

The Kharadron have a variety of vessels in their fleets ranging from the Grundstock Gunhauler fighter to the massive Khrundhal-class battleships. Warships are usually used sparingly due to the massive cost of producing and maintaining them - they also strain Artycle 2 of the Code. [3]
