Yay! My Rat Ogre! ^_^
The Deathpits are located to the northeast of the Outskirts, and ruled by Lord Krazek. The tunnels here are massive, grand, awe-inspring things, and countless Moulders fit through it. It is very highly organized, with different areas for Mouldering labs, other lodging, markets, and arenas. It is ruled by an accountingrat, and this reflected in its highly hierarchial and organized structure. Moulders here are highly encouraged to fight a 'match a moon', and if they do not, they are frowned upon by their neighbors. However, Krazek's good accounting allows him to attract more Moulders to his domain by offering extra winnings to Moulders here. The Deathpits are the second largest of the areas in the Pitfighting Realm, and are famous for grand, impressive, gory fights.
Lord Krazek - Although not a Moulder, he has integrated himself with the Mouldering World enough to be considered an honorary one. He was appointed by Verminkin after Meroth but before Ozekan, in order to make up for the incompetence of his predecessor, Master Moulder Thrakkik. He succeeded marvelously, turning the Deathpits into a massive money-maker for Clan Moulder.
Favrik - Favrik is a very old rat. He was offered a position in the Inner Domain after the Moulder Recall, despite his position as an instigator of the masses and an outspoken critic of Clan Moulder, and refused, instead preferring to reside in a (well-guarded) laboratory in the Deathpits. He was the editor of the Moulder Monthly during the Golden Age of Pitfighting, and is the editor of the Monthly still, although now it is a part of the larger Hell Pit Chronicle. He is a very popular Skaven, and no-rat would ever think of harming him. He has, since the recall, been much more active in tournaments, and has made many public appearances.
Skrillik - A fairly typical Moulder, Skrillik worked his way up from a Packmaster, became a beast-tamer, and then moved into the field of Mouldering. Even now, though, he prefers to make simple beasts, and then train them in unique ways to make beasts with unusual tactics.
Haldrek - Haldrek Beast-breaker is one of the most skilled Moulders of all time. He is notoriously fast in making mutations, and his creations dominate easily. He has also trained them in the art of show: they never kill outright, but instead play with their prey before finally eliminating them.
Ghardijat - Ghardijat is another relic from the Golden Age of Pitfighting, one of the few to escape Verminkin's purges. He was, however, forced out of the Inner Domain and made to live in the Deathpits. He is very fat and wealthy, and has a host of Packmasters and apprentices mutate and enter all of his beasts for him, whil himself rarely appearing on the field. He is carried around on a palanquin all the time, and ridicules his competition constantly, but beneath his arrogance lies a cold cunning and a wicked ruthlessness.
Rarekk - A boastful and arrogant Moulder, Rarekk is relatively young and new to the Pitfighting scene. A 'child progeny' of sorts, he is a brilliant Mutator who specialized in making brutal breasts that do obscene amounts of damage with every blow.
Horvix - An old, doddering Moulder who rarely fights his own fights. He is fabulously wealthy, and is often represented by servants. However, he can still put together a mean beast. His tend to be slow but hard to kill.
Kallinikisuk - A crazy, if not very inventive and creative Moulder. He is always a step ahead of the game, and makes frequent use of Skryre technology. He has recently scrapped all of his projects to focus on two: a super man-sized beast and a super Ogre-sized one.
Commentator Morkskittar: One of the oldest Skaven in Hell Pit, Morkskittar was a Moulder before Verminkin was even Packlord, entering the games shortly before Ravvitch's death. He remained mostly on the quiet side, and retired quietly to do work for the Packlord countless years ago, where ha had been forgotten. Recently, Lord Krazek convinced him to emerge from the Inner Domain to comment on Deathpit matches, bringing his experience to the games.
Pit of the Rejected - This is a massive pit deep in the depths of the earth, where many Moulders' failed experiments are cast. It is sealed behind massive doors, and is the site of the infamous 'Rejected' tournament.
Tri-Pit - A very large arena, with three entrances instead of two.
Ratyrinth - An open-top labyrinth that allows the audience to watch as beasts try to make their way through it.
Crushpit - A normal arena, but the ceiling is gradually dropped, limiting the heigtspace until both beasts are crushed - unless, of course, one beast defeats the other within enough time.
The Deathpit - The Deathpit is the largest arena in the Pitfighting Realm, and contains thirteen entrances. The floor is scattered with bones and spikes, and jets of flame shoot up from cracks in the floor. A very dangerous place to fight.
