Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
Karak Azgal : Adventures of the Dragon CragBook - 2005
Karak Azgal is a background book that is a must for roleplaying officiandos. Karak Azgal was once a rich Dwarf hold, but it fell to the forces of chaos. A dragon moved in, and dug out much of the treasure hidden in the dungeon to form a horde. This dragon was slain, over a thousand years ago by a Dwarf named Skalf. He claimed the treasure, and ownership of Karak Azgal. He realised the hold was too infested to clear out, so he built an enclave above the Hold and set up court there. A city has now grown up, rich from the treasures brought up by adventurers. The dwarfs encourage folk to go down there and recover their ancestors goods (and tax the hell out of them for doing so) but aren't too fussed about clearing it themselves- Dwarfs take the long view that one day the Goblins that live down there will go extinct, and when they do, all the gold down there will come back into Dwarf hands. They are, in fact being very generous in allowing folk to go down there and bring it back up- why, they might even get to keep 10% of it! That's practically giving it away¿The city setting of Karak Azgal is perfect for Dwarf gags, intrigue and numerous excuses to be sent into the dungeon. It should be richly populated with interesting characters, and should logically extrapolate what happens to a city that has grown up on a treasure horde- for example," everything's very expensive- if you don't haven any money, you can always take anadvance on what you're about to earn¿just sign here (think record company)" No one bothers to learn your name until you've been down and back out a couple of times." Dungeoneering teams are commissioned to map areas." There are 'recovery outfits' that specialise in finding ancestral treasure." People bet on the dungeoneering teams." You can pay for your funeral in advance should you not make it out" Tavern/first aid outposts have grown up over the air shafts that lead deep into the hold-complete with winches, tax specialists, and healers, bookies, recruiting sergeants,touting guides and roaring drunk dwarfs."
