John French – Blood and Lies Audiobook (Agent of the Throne: Warhammer 40,000, Book 1)
Felix threw his rug over the giant as Henrik did the same. Henrik after that cleared the materials of his lamps oil storage tank over whatever and occupied a lantern from a dropped orc.
Perhaps next time you wont be so crazy as to be birthed a giant, he sneered, after that touched the torch to the carpets and stepped back as they started to melt.
He and also Felix and also the killers tossed broken furnishings and ruined chests onto the fires, after that threw the beasts cut limbs in the middle of it. John French – Blood and Lies Audiobook Free Online. Gotrek stepped to the giants head and cut it with a quick chop. Felix took a breath a sigh of relief as its scared wails stopped.
After they were sure the thing was well and also really burning, as well as after Henrik had actually assisted Agnar plaster the injury in his arm, Gotrek started once more for the skavens hole in the wall. Felix as well as Agnar made to follow, however Henrik held the old slayer back and whispered in his ear, gesturing angrily at the burning troll.
Henrik stepped from Agnar and they began forward, the old killer shooting a difficult consider Gotreks back.
The skavens hole in the wall led into what appeared to be a limited drain pipe. It was covered with a crust of completely dry algae as well as the stinking deposit of the flow of lots of skaven, and angled down to the left and up to the right. Gotrek examined the tracks, then started up accessible and also knees with Felix following. It swiftly turned left and also levelled out, and also Felix thought that it was running over the corridor outside the vault.
A moment later on, he was confirmed right, for he came to a tiny opening bored through the flooring of the pipe that overlooked into the hallway.
Skaven spy openings, he murmured. Have we been seen all along?
As the event carried on, the pounding of drums started to echo noisally down the pipe ahead of them, as well as they listened to the guttural grunting of arguing orcs. A few more backyards and also the pipe split left as well as right, and the drums boomed up from a broad opening in the floor of the left-hand pipeline. Gotrek stuck his head with it, after that decreased himself down. Felix, Agnar and Henrik complied with, going down together right into what appeared to be a pump space. A smaller pipeline ran down one wall right into a fat brass reservoir, and also there were shutoffs and also bars sticking from it, as well as more pipelines running from it. A slim door, held open by a heap of garbage, led back into the passage, and sound and light spilled in through the void. It appeared as if the orc debate were getting to a surge.
Gotrek reduced via the half-open door with the others complying with behind. To the east, the flow vanished into darkness, but just 10 speeds to the west, it opened up onto a wide, pillared veranda that looked out over a huge dwarf-built chamber with a soaring cross-vaulted roof covering. The wall surfaces were punctured with balconies and galleries that increased in overhanging tiers over the smoky light of the fires that burned below, and also resembled with the deafening shouts of thousands of orc warriors.
Gotrek, Felix, Agnar and also Henrik crouched on the veranda and peered via the balustrade to the vicious horde below.
Gotreks solitary eye kindled excitedly at the view. This is a worthy ruin.
The flooring of the enormous chamber was packed with a seething ocean of orcs, above which increased banners marked with loads of crude icons– glaring sunlight, red fists, grinning moons, broken skulls as well as bloody axes. The green monsters were all shouting and trembling tools and also torches over their heads and also looking in the direction of the center of the room where four huge bonfires blazed.
There crowded the most significant mob of all, over three hundred orcs rallying around dirty green banners with the crude symbol of a stinking foot painted on them in white. Inside the location marked off by the four bonfires was a square of open floor, and 2 orcs lay dead within it, while 2 more circled each other.
Whats taking place? asked Henrik.
An obstacle, stated Gotrek.
One of the orcs was as huge as any type of Felix had ever before seen, head, shoulders and also breast above the remainder, and muscled like a mutated ape. He was worn hefty rusted armour, studded all over with spikes, and also had a helm with an also larger spike sticking directly from the top of his head.
His opponent was shorter, as well as, though well-muscled as well as encased in unrefined plate, was not almost as huge as Spike Helm. He additionally strolled with a limp, his best foot bound up in unclean plasters. However there was a self-confidence to his stance, as well as a cunning in the turn of his head.
The youngster is Stinkfoot? asked Henrik. He doesn’t stand a chance.
Lets hope so, stated Felix. With him dead, the orc alliance crumbles, and we can all return to the tavern.
Allows hope not, after that, said Agnar, firing a sour eye Gotrek. I still haven’t had the ability to assert my ruin.
Spike Helm took a couple of exploratory swipes at Stinkfoot, all the while groaning as well as gargling orcish insults, yet Stinkfoot did not resist. He just looked at the bigger orc as well as relied on maintain him before him. Angered by this behaviour, Spike Helm billed. Stinkfoot side-slipped as well as Spike Helm stumbled past, his spiked mace squashing only air, then turned again to encounter the warboss.
Across the circle, Stinkfoot increased his bandaged foot and thrust it at Spike Helm as if he was trying to kick him in the privates. He didnt come close. His challenger was six paces far from him, and also yet, astoundingly, the significant orc went down anyway, toppling like a side of beef cut from a hook to sprawl on the flooring, unmoving.
Felix gazed as all the orcs in the room quieted in worry and admiration. Had it been magic? Had it been a method? Was the stink of Stinkfoots foot so disgusting that it could kill an orc at six paces?
That wasnt right, claimed Agnar. Just how did he do that?
Stinkfoot stepped up onto the substantial barrel chest of his dropped opponent and also raised his protruding arms, roaring his prominence to the others. The orcs resembled his roar, trembling their weapons as well as headbutting each other in enjoyment. John French – Blood and Lies Audiobook Streaming. The chamber shuddered with the audio of it.
Over this clamor, Stinkfoot roared once more, as well as directed with his axe to a great archway on the north side of the chamber. The orcs wailed in feedback, after that took and also started forward.
It starts, stated Agnar. They go to war.
As well as were too late to warn Thorgrin, stated Henrik.
Yet not far too late to do what that dead orc couldnt, claimed Gotrek. He responded in the direction of a terrace over the wonderful arc where Stinkfoots army was flowing, and in the direction of which Stinkfoot himself was slowly relocating. It was linked to the one they got on by a columned gallery. If we run, we can jump down on the greenskin before he passes under that arc.
Agnars eyes glittered excitedly. Aye. Aye!
The two Slayers hurried north into the gallery.
As Felix and also Henrik began after them, Henrik removed his throat. Slayer Gurnisson, ah, probably you must let Agnar leap first when we get there.
Why? asked Gotrek without slowing.
Emergency room, well, you have burglarized Agnar of 2 ruins already on this trip. To make up for it–.
Gotrek ground his teeth. Ive robbed nobody. If he intends to leap first, allow him attempt.
You conflicted. Twice, firmly insisted Henrik, elevating his voice.
Felix cringed. Peaceful! The orcs are right listed below us.
Henrik ignored him. You blocked blows indicated for Agnar throughout the minehead battle! And also just now you sidetracked the troll when it was sure to have killed him! A slayers honour demands.
Gotrek grunted. No manling can lecture me regarding a slayers honour. I advised you I would.
After that I will certainly lecture you! barked Agnar, and also quit to encounter him. Gotrek Gurnisson, you have left the means of the killer. A true killer can not adhere to real course for 10 years and also still live.
Gotrek quit as well as stared at him with his solitary baleful eye for a moment, after that transformed as well as proceeded down the passage. Theres no time for this. We must get to the arc.
Do you refute it, then? asked Henrik. Do you call Agnar a liar?
What are you doing? murmured Felix. Why mix difficulty when theyll both find their ruins because jump? Leave it be!
Henrik carried on as if Felix hadnt spoken. Will you allow him call you a liar, Agnar?
I will not! Agnar stymied after Gotrek and spun him around with a hand on his shoulder. Blood and Lies Audiobook Download. Gotrek shoved him back, sending him into the wall surface.
Do not lay hands on me, Agnar Arvastsson.
