Total War: Warhammer campaign trailer shows off the dwarfs’ Great Book of Grudges

Total War Warhammer Book of Grudges

As we march ever-closer to the release of Total War: Warhammer, Creative Assembly are releasing spotlight trailers for each race to show off their unique approaches to taking over kingdoms. After we saw the Empire a couple of weeks ago, today we turn our attention to the stumpy bearded dwarfs.  

From where we’re standing, Total War: Warhammer looks destined to be one of the best strategy games on PC.

Key to the Dwarves is the Dammaz Kron, or Great Book of Grudges, and you can get your first look at it in the video below. It’s a mechanic not seen before in the Total War games, meaning playing as the Dwarfs will be a little bit different from the usual TW rhythm.

Two of the Dwarfs’ key objectives are to recapture the fallen Dwarf Strongholds located in the Badlands, and to clear the Great Book of Grudges. The book contains a list of ‘grudges’ that are essentially missions with specific goals and rewards. As the campaign progresses, the more conflicts you create, the more grudges will be added to the book.

It seems a great little idea to emphasise how grumpy and angry the Dwarfs are, and will certainly help make campaigns played as the different races a little more unique. WIll the Dwarfs be your race of choice when the game launches April 28th?
