Not all Dwarven settlements delight in the riches and power that comes from Mithril mining. Some, such as the hold of Karak Norn, live humbler and more modest lives and must expend great efforts for even the most meager returns. Consequently the excitement forded by the ultraviolent excesses of Blood Bowl is even more alluring!
Founded in 2509 by the workers of the Sigrisson Silvermine Company, the Skullcleavers played sixteen matches under their original owner before a shameful defeat to Orcs in 2510 saw him disband the team in disgust.
Three and a half years later, with the bitter memories still fresh, the Skullcleavers players refounded the team to seek vengeance or die trying. Their first game after their return was a bloodbath
, with the Skullcleavers taking seven casualties, including the death of founder member Sorri Stormhammer, and leaving two of their opponents lifeless.
Early encounters against Orcs had, as mentioned, ended in a series of defeats. Three times the greenskin scum prevailed, with not even a touchdown to show for the Dwarven efforts. Finally, in game 33, the Skullcleavers faced an Orc team and left unbroken. A creditable and bloody draw was achieved, a touchdown scored, and an Orc head taken. In game 36 further honour was restored as an Orc team was vanquished 2-0.
On the occasion of the 50th game, team management unveiled a new team logo and kit.
