The Shadow Council of Thirteen are the immortal rulers of the skaven race, subject only to the will of the Great Horned Rat. [1a]


The Council is made up of twelve Verminlords with a thirteen place reserved for their god, the Great Horned Rat himself. The council members can change by the day or even the hour as the various daemons squablle, plot and conduct metaphysical manipulations. [1a]

Council Members

  • Skreech Verminking: The only permanent member of the council, speaking as the avatar of the Great horned Rat. [1a]

Meeting Place

Council meetings are held beneath the warpstone throne that sits at the top of the Tower of Kavzar in Blight City in the vast chamber also known as the Masterburrow. [1a]

They are conducted within a shadowy gnawhole that is guarded by vicious curses that no mortal being could endure. It is constantly fluctuating in size and appearance. [1a]

The Vermninlords gather upon daises created from boiling darkness, twisted flesh and churning gears all centered on a warpstone and brass sigil of the Horned Rat. [1a]
