The ruined city of Mordheim is located on the border of Ostermark and Stirland.

History

The city was destroyed at the stroke of midnight that marked the beginning of the Imperial year 2000 by a twin tailed comet that had been believed to herald the second coming of Sigmar. Thousands had flocked to the city to witness the miracle of Sigmar's return, only to see the comet crash into the city and kill most of the people.

Shortly after the devastation it was discovered that the ruins of Mordheim were saturated with Wyrdstone shards from the shattered comet. Soon it was discovered that using Wyrdstone men could perform miracles: healing the sick, resurrecting the dead, and turning base metals to gold. This last use caught the interest of the rival claimants for the Imperial throne and soon the value of Wyrdstone far outstripped its weight in gold.

Mordheim was finally burned to the ground at the orders of Grand Theogonist fand remains in ruins to the present day.
