Mortarchs of the Mortal Realms

The Mortarchs are Deathlords, immensely powerful servants of Nagash, some of which were a powerful force in the World-that-Was and who now serve him again in the Mortal Realms.[1] Each of the Mortarchs have powerful relics and artefacts at their disposal and may ride to war on Dread Abyssal mounts.

There are nine Mortarchs in total.[3b]

We are him, and he is us. But we were all someone else, once. In us is Nagash’s power made manifest. But so too are his weaknesses. Neferata is his guile, Mannfred, his ambition, and I...I am his loyalty – to others, to this realm, to those he claims as his own. What Nagash has claimed, he will hold until time’s last gleaming, even if he must destroy it to keep it
