The Chaos Dwarfs are ultimately led by the 'Daemonsmiths', a position that combines the role of sorcerer, priest of Hashut and master engineer. [1a]

These sorcerers are powerful magic users, but are inflicted with a curse of petrification which slowly turns their flesh into blackened stone. The oldest sorcerers are now just immobile statues, their mighty minds trapped inside forever. [1a]

History

When their Dwarf ancestors stood on the brink of death in the Time of Woe, it was a group of sorcerers who saved them, in time raising the great city of Zharr-Naggrund. As their civilisation grew, they created many and varied works of dark engineering and darker magic, raising huge obsideon and black iron towers. [1a]

Society

This group, led by the most senior of the number, are the masters of the Chaos Dwarf empire and dictate to the warriors and crafts-dwarfs below them, who in turn are masters of the multitude of slaves who by number alone make up by far the majority of life in the empire. Only a few hundred are active any any one time but they rule the Chaos Dwarfs with each having their own domain, forges, strongholds, soliders and slaves tos erve them. [1a]

The oldest amongst them invariably have the most power as, like their western cousins, the Chaos Dwarfs have a deep respect for age and knowledge. [1a]
