Quotes

After any sojourn in foreign parts, no sight is so touching in its majesty as the first glimpse of Altdorf’s great spires on the horizon. In his impeccability our divine Unberogen patron, first of our Emperors, chose this place for his seat. It was a bare and meagre fishing village when he was born here, but Sigmar left it a gleaming metropolis. He raised his marble palace upon the banks where the mighty Talabec and Reik converge, home of our greatest leaders since that day. Now everything that a long life can countenance is here. The ships, towers, colleges, domes, theatres, and temples lie open to the god-king’s appraisal and the bells in the cathedral call his worshippers to muster. He still regards Altdorf with pride and benevolence. This is his, the city of the Heldenhammer. It was then, it is now, and so shall it be forever
