It was rather convenient for the apprentice that he alone had escaped the death that had overtaken Grey Seer Skabritt and his entourage. Already raised far beyond his station by the Council, made apprentice to the famous, renowned Grey Seer Thanquol, allowed the fabulous opportunity to learn from the most brilliant mind in all skavendom, Thanquol suspected that Kratch 39 was still not content. The adept would require some careful watching… or perhaps a convenient accident when the time was right.
31 Thanquol did not need to count the chairs to know that there were thirteen. Their occupants, if any, would be the Lords of Decay, the warlords and masters of the most powerful clans in the Under-Empire. He could barely make out the banners that stood behind each chair, casting a darker shadow upon its occupant. Each banner depicted the sign of the great clan or warlord clan the Lord of Decay ruled over and represented. The assassins of Clan Eshin, the fanatics of Clan Pestilens, the brutal warriors of Clan Mors and Clan Skab, all had their representative upon the Council of Thirteen.
Anxious paws flew to his long, hairless tail, stroking it like a brood-mother with a favourite whelp. Thanquol let out a long gasp of relief. It was all there. Somehow his tail had managed to avoid being caught in the slamming doors. A low, bubbling chuckle took Thanquol’s thoughts from his near-escape to the greater peril that still menaced him. It was a deep, throaty laugh, sickening and rotten, Thanquol was reminded of gas escaping from beneath a bog. It was a cruel, savage sort of humour that brooked no good will towards whatever it was directed against.
