Once upon a time, there was a Chaos Dwarf and an Orc who competed with each other over who could build the best idol for their respective god. On the one hand, the Chaos Dwarf chiseled and hammered and polished and carved day and night, in order to erect a statuary image of Hashut in hard stone. On the other hand, the Orc ate and drank and slept and soiled himself day and night, in order to build a stinking effigy of Gork out of his own worm-infested dung.

One day, the heavens let loose all rain, and a flash flood hit the two idols. On the one hand, the Chaos Dwarf’s well-wrought stone idol withstood the waters and shielded him from their fury. On the other hand, the Orc’s dung effigy was flushed away by the waters and toppled over the Orc, drowning him in his own droppings. For such is the fate of those who would craft objects shoddily and out of feeble materials.
