One, Untended is a short story by David Guymer which describes the search for a child apparently abducted by a Nighthaunt in the ancient ruins below Hammerhal Ghyra.[1]


When a child goes missing from Hammerhal Ghyra, Gotrek Gurnisson, recovering from an epic drinking binge (and some nasty poisoning) volunteers to enter the nearby catacombs and find him – especially since his mother claims he was taken by a ghost. Venturing into the darkness with his reluctant aelven companion Maleneth. But even the vaunted Stormcast Eternals were unable to cleanse this labyrinth of the taint that infects it, and what awaits the adventurers below will test them to their limits.

The story begins with the Slayer, Gotrek Gurnisson vomiting up his breakfast, having been poisoned by his reluctant companion, Maleneth Witchblade. They head back into the Missed Striking, a tavern in the Stranglevines of the city. [1]

A distraught woman arrives and her husband, bewailing the loss of their child to a ghost of an ancient hero, now a Nighthaunt. Reluctantly Gotrek and Maleneth accompany a aged warrior-priest of Alarielle and an equally veteran Ranger from the Living City deep below the city. [1]

There they uncover not only a Skaven plot but the story behind the ghost. [1]
