An interesting piece of described visuals from the Zoroastrian final judgement myth: Frashokereti

My emboldening:

On earth, the Saoshyant will bring about a resurrection of the dead in the bodies they had before they died. This is followed by a last judgment through ordeal. The yazatas Airyaman and Atar will melt the metal in the hills and mountains, and the molten metal will then flow across the earth like a river. All mankind�?"both the living and the resurrected dead�?"will be required to wade through that river, but for the righteous (ashavan) it will seem to be a river of warm milk, while the wicked will be burned. The river will then flow down to hell, where it will annihilate Angra Mainyu and the last vestiges of wickedness in the universe.

All metal ores of the world melted, to gush over its surface? Seems like good Chaos Dwarf myth material if one was to give it a grimdark twist.

Fuggit Khan:

This is some seriously cool mythology: Rivers of molten metal to burn the unworthy.

Really fits in well with the idea of the dark lands, expansion of influence, the chosen people of fire and ash, etc.

Perfect for chaos dwarves, thank you for sharing!


Given the innate dwarven goldlust, I think this would probably be a Chaos Dwarf tragedy to see all that gold and other precious metals being given away/shared so freely. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
