Kraggi, the best of Thorek's assistants, accompanies him to battle and helps him by preparing some of the runes. Most of the time this is a big help and speeds things up, but occasionally his lack of experience (he's hardly been smithing a century) lets him down and he makes a mistake.
Kraggi, Assistant at the Forge
Kraggi is represented on the tabletop by a separate miniature that always remains as close as possible to Thorek’s Anvil of Doom. The model itself plays no part in the game; if it gets in the way, simply move it to one side. If Thorek is slain, Kraggi is also removed.
Thorek can re-roll a single dice on a failed attempt to cast one of the innate bound spells of the Anvil of Doom per turn. If this re-rolled dice rolls a 1, Kraggi has done something wrong and Thorek takes a Strength 10 hit. Kraggi is then removed from play and the Kraggi, Assistant at the Forge special rule cannot be used again for the rest of the game.
