The Road to Warhammer Underworlds Direchasm: The Lore

Direchasm will be my first season of Warhammer Underworlds. The shorter games and mix of game styles are what drew me in. Let's jump into this world together. Today we are exploring the lore of this season's new arena.

It started with Shadespire, then Nightvault, followed by Beastgrave. Now, in the deepest caverns located at the heart of Beastgrave is this season of Warhammer Underworld's latest region, Direchasm. Now on to the Games Workshop video!
From Warhammer Community:
The living mountain of Beastgrave remains the setting for this season of the ultimate competitive miniatures game. After the Shyish necroquake, the curse that Nagash put on the Mirrored City of Shadespire spread to Beastgrave. Countless warbands were drawn to the mountain by vivid dreams of destruction and slaughter. These adventurers fought through the labyrinthine interior of the mountain, dying over and over, each time reborn to battle once more.
Direchasm is the name for the tunnels and chambers that have opened at the mountain's roots. As Beastgrave stirs from its aeons-long slumber, the impenetrable amber that blocked the way into these abyssal reaches has begun to liquefy. New chambers have been revealed that drip with sticky resin, and they're filled with both dangers and fresh opportunities for those warbands brave enough to venture into their depths.

Beastgrave

 

Warbands journey to the heart of the living mountain for a multitude of reasons. Some want to Soothe the savage mountain, others want to harness it's power, while a choice few wish to kill it outright. Mysteries and treasure await all who dare to enter. 

 Heart of Beastgrave

One of the first to enter are Myari's Purifiers. These Lumineth Rea-lords have for seen a great cataclysm caused by the awakening of the mountain. Pitted against Myari's Purifiers is a group of Hedonites of Slaanesh known as the Dread Pageant. This warband seeks new sensations in the caverns of Direchasm. The Dread Pageant have discovered that violence in Direchasm causes the mountain of Beastgrave to respond with primal emotions, which Hedonites can then feed off of.
