He ran, the sharp clinking of his mechano-parts clearly audible even over the warning bells that sounded in the secret warren of Rattsu The Black, lord of Ulricsberg. Behind the pale furred one, a dozen or so of Rattsu's elite stormvermin ran towards him, swords cleached in their paws. They knew that if they didn't get the prisoner back, Rattsu would most likely flay them alive. The weapons were gone, he knew it as the warlock had stripped most from his body, even the warfirethrower built into the claw but the claw in itself had still worked, the proof it being the two dead guards he had left behind althought he was uncomfortable with the swords he had stolen from them, having used to the longer reach of his halberd. One of the Hissvin warriors in front of him moved to intercept him but he smashed one of the swords quickly into his abdomen, leaving the blade embedded in the gut of the unfortunate rat. Down to one sword, he swore and took a few sharp corners. After a couple of hours he had finally lost his pursuers in the tunnels, now slowly crawling inside a sewage tunnel that would most likely end somewhere near one the entrances in to the mountain proper.

He dusted most of the lizard dung away from his robes and slowly started to walk back towards territory owned by the Claws. About half an hour later the warlord came upon a small sentry post, the rats drawing their weapons. "Halt-halt, who goes there-there!" The warlord lowered his hood and glared at the warriors present. "It's me-me you idiots. Warlord Wynnar! Now-now get me to the council chamber quick-quick, I have urgent news about Rattsu." The warlord indeed looked just like the enormous leader of clan Skarratch and the smell was right too. Virulus rats leaped into action making sure that they did not displease him, althought when one of then snickered about the sorry state of the warlord's clothes, he soon found out that even thought Wynnar had lost an eye and a great bit from his sence of smell, his hearing was still as good as ever and the strenght in the metallic claw that crushed his head was not to be underestimated either. After that, the remaining rats summoned a regiment of warriors held in reserve to lead the warlord where he wanted to go. "Yes-yes, everything is going to be very good-good from now on.." The warlord thought and licked the blood from the claw, thinking what he would do to the one who had dared to oppose him. A cold chuckle echoed in the caverns of Ulricsberg.

EDIT: Argh, stupid me, of course I should have included Antheraks story... :( Feel free to edit the title.
