Skaven in Nagash, TONS OF SPOILERS!
Ok I've been reading the Nagash trilogy, third book and I've become confused about the skavens.
I was under the impression that skavens were all on the lookout for themselves.
I thought they would rather stab their superiors in the back than save them.
In one of the chapters a Skaven warlord and an assassin commander were trapped in a fire both were rescued by the assassin's underlings. Their clans then spent tons of money fixing both of them up, and whats more they were actually guarded.
