The highly-rated turn-based real-time strategy (RTS) game, "Total War: Warhammer," is all set for the launch of its second downloadable content (DLC) this coming Oct. 20. The upcoming expansion pack is titled "The King & The Warlord," which will entail the grand battle between The Greenskins (goblins) and The Dwarfs. The DLC boasts numerous additional content, like new units and maps that can add more depth to the game.

The Steam page for the second Lords Pack of the esteemed game indicates that the fight will be led by two new legendary Lords branching from the armored dwarven army and the vicious goblin horde. The second Lords pack also includes new quest chains, skill trees, magic items and a myriad of new battlefield units. 

The first Legendary Lord from the dwarven race is called Belegar Ironhammer, True King of The Eight Peaks. Belegar pledges to take back the fallen Dwarf Hold from the Greenskin rulers no matter how perilous the quest seems to be.

As with other Legendary Lords, Belegar also starts out in a unique location, wherein he serves as the leader and owner of the well protected Karak Izor in the Border Princes territory. If the dwarven lord is picked to lead the Grand Campaign, an additional bonus will be given to the player.

The campaign bonus allows Belegar to start out with companion Heroes, which are actually ancestral spirits of his race. The companions are Throni Ironbrow (Runesmith), King Lunn The Ironhammer (Thane), Dramar Hammerfist (Master Engineer), and Halkenhaf Stonebeard (Thane) which are all considered ethereal characters.

Meanwhile, the rival warlord that rules the Dwarf Hold is called Skarsnik, Warlord of The Eight Peaks, who is well-known for his brutality and sadistic tendencies. The ruler of the night goblin race in the world's edge mountains is praised for his immense proficiency in close-quarter combats. 

The goblin lord starts out in the outskirts of Karak Eight Peaks due to his penchant to go Squig hunting with his dreaded giant cave pet called Gobbla.
