Malkior the Silent Confirmed as Next Master of the Hunt
In an unsurprising turn of events, Malkior the Silent has joined the HellCouncil, replacing the dead Korr Ventariis as the Master of the Hunt. Malkior's appointment means that the HellCouncil is once more entirely Skaven, and already non-Skaven members of the Hunt are facing discrimination from the upper ranks, and many high-ranking elves have been purged or imprisoned.

Malkior the Silent earned his name for his slashed throat - supposedly earned in a failed assassination attempt - and whispering, almost inaudible voice, as well as his dislike of speaking. He has been a high-ranking Hunter, and a favorite of Korr despite his anti-Elf sentiments, for quite a while. An older Skaven, he remains spry, and until Korr's death, the second most proficient Hunter in the entire caste.

Malkior, aside from being a skilled hunter, is also a noted proponent of Skaven's Rights, and a champion of the Skaven Supremacy movement. His appointment has given the Skaven Supremacists a further boost to their legitimacy, and a greater say in the affairs of Hell Pit. While most of the HellCouncil has no public views on Skaven Supremacy, Malkior is outspoken on his support of it, while it is whispered that Slavelord Kirilken and Verminmaster Skrit-Quoll have Skaven Supremacist sympathies. On the other side, surprisingly, Screamingclaw, while intolerant of heresy and generally supportive of Skaven holdiung the highest positions of power, is said to actually support giving non-Skaven greater opportunities. Additionally, Vorqueek and Darkshar are believed to hold similar opinions, though they do not voice them.

The composition of the Hunter's Caste is certain to change with a noted Skaven Supremacist at its head, and when the time comes, we shall see how he performs. For now, welcome to the HellCouncil, Malkior!

Ratzmas Cometh!
'Tis the season for Saint Ratolas to arrive! Make sure to sign up for the Ratzmas Tournament, and enter the Ratzmas Tournament!

Gangs on the Prowl
Gangs are starting to get organised out in the wastes around and under Hell Pit; they've even begun giving themselves names. While this is not unusual in and of itself, the sheer quantity of organized, or at least semi-organized, crime and extra-legal organizations engaging in it has exploded of late. Many blame the Homelands Movements for this trend.

Most prominently, the Rapscallions, a mixed-species warband, have recently started terrorising the areas around the outer tunnels. It's said that they're led by two charismatic, ex-pitfighting beasts, who escaped from their masters and are ultimately trying to seek revenge.

If you're shopping out on the edges of Hell Pit, beware!

WMD Fights Skaven Supremacy
In light of the recent riling up of Skaven Supremacist sentiment in Hell Pit by Foulclaw, and in response to the ascension of Malkior the Silent to the HellCouncil, socialists, homeland movements, and others have launched a campaign attacking Skaven Supremacists, and particularly Foulclaw. The prominent Skaven Supremacist, who arose seemingly from nowhere following a plague of pamphlets he unleashed upon the city, is seeming to diminish rapidly in stature as anti-Skaven Supremacist voices speak up. Despite Skaven Supremacy gaining a powerful new ally in the form of Malkior, non-Skaven denizens of Hell Pit are not taking this lying down!

Indeed, one of the most outspoken voices against Skaven Supremacy has actually been a Skaven - Tirr the Strange, leader and organizer of the WMD (Wyrd Militia Division) - has been touring Hell Pit, giving rousing species that are suspiciously socialist in character, urging a unity of Hell Pit's working classes, of all races, to resist divisive rhetoric. He has also been recruiting members and supporters through his speeches, directly rebutting Foulclaw and, seemingly, changing minds! Perhaps Tirr, who lives up to his epithet, can bring Hell Pit together again?

Editorial: Ho-ho-horay for Ratzmas!
by Ratolas von Rattenstein
Hell Pit has been seized recently with an anti-Ratzmas spirit. While everyrat, of course, understands the heretical origins of Ratzmas as an old Skaven holiday glorifying the dead god, the Horned Rat, the holiday provides such an opportunity for cheer, and the new Hell Pit of the Shattered Isle had done a fantastic job of turning what was once heresy into a celebration of Hell Pit's strength!

Don't listen, then, to those naysayers who say that the holiday is a return to old heretical traditions; celebrating it now has the HellCouncil's stamp of approval, and will only bring us together to create Mutae! Merry Ratzmas, and Mutae bless us, every one!

No Mutagins this Turn; double-mutagin update next Turn!

Mutae! Mutae! Mutae!

Overall, an uneventful turn... which is a nice change. :P

You'll also notice a lack of tournament and mutagin updates. Apologies from Morky on this; he thought he'd be in a better state, but after his bathroom roof collapsed this week and he lost Internet (in addition to having to help out with and attend three American Thanksgivings :S ), he just couldn't update the tourneys by this Saturday/today. Not been a great week for Morky. :P

However, the Squiggening's next rounds will be fought on Wednesday, before the turn ends, and the Feast of Mutae will begin the next day. Apologies for the delay, but Morky is guarding his mental health with this spreading out of updates.

Similarly, those of you waiting on RP updates, expect those on Monday. :)

Additionally, remember that soon MP will go on a holiday hiatus following this turn! Turn 32 will be a normal turn (1 week orders, 1 week update), but Turn 33 will have 1 week of Orders before breaking into the MP hiatus, which will last until early January, with updated rules. :)

Again, apologies for some of the issues with this week's update, but give Glod and Quickitt a hand for doing an awesome job with their ends!

Also: Due to the sudden influx of creatures for this hunt, you have a little bit of breathing room with the beasts before riots... but not too too much. ;)

If Tirr were a communist he would say now the boar is becoming the symbol of a now irreligious holiday almost soley invested in the practise of consumerism, making it a literal Capitalist Pig. Good thing he's not though.

Ashen, that was a glorious analysis. Huzzah for visual puns (and not committing heresy).

Yay! My Rat Ogre! ^_^
Note: Many of you probably noticed that the tourney updates have not come yet. Unfortunately, Morky was overwhelmed with work/being forced to defend his basic rights/fight to make sure his taxes don't increase by 300% next year, and he's been too drained to make much headway in them. Both tournaments are on a to-do list for Turn 32, however.

Take it easy, RL stuff always comes first. :)

Edit: I also would like to thank the Packlords for making this Hunt so awesome. I think interesting things happened for everyone and the revised system worked very well. Thanks for the well thought out Hunt, all the work is much appreciated. :D

Glod, Quickitt, and Mork: despite grumblings from the perspective of the character you guys ran a very enjoyable hunt. Well done!

@Falco: my guess is that they're going to release the updates some time in the near future during our MP hiatus.
