We’ve gotten sidelong looks at Total War: Warhammer III’s Ogre Kingdoms legendary lords to date, but now we’ve gotten proper introductions. Greasus Goldtooth and Skrag the Slaughterer will be leading the hungry lads into battle when the upcoming strategy game launches next year, and some new Total War blogs have the delicious details on the fearsome pair.
First up is Greasus Goldtooth, an ogre who revels in superlatives. According to the lore, Greasus assumed the title of overtyrant after making a stew out of his own father, an act he followed up by striking a plumb deal with Zhao Ming of Grand Cathay. The terms of the agreement gave Greasus control over the crucial Ivory Road trading route that passes through Ogre territory on its way between Cathay and the rest of the Old World.
Greasus became quite rich off this arrangement, but it wasn’t until he defeated the Black Orc Warlord Urk at the Fire Mouth that he was able to assert dominance over the rest of the Ogre tribes and become overtyrant – and he’s assumed several more big names over the course of his career.
