* InexplicablyAwesome: Even Drachenfels has no idea how his powers work, they just do. This is a guy so powerful the RPG supplement says the Chaos gods lend him daemons to keep him from beating them up and taking their lunch money. He was old before the Old Ones first brought magic into the world, and millennia older by the time Chaos first entered it; whatever his power source is it's completely out of context.

** As of the Nagash End-Times books they seem to be totally back in continuity, with a resurrected (although amnesiac) Drahenfels serving as one of Nagash's generals against the Hordes of Chaos. He's ultimately destroyed by holy power in the last book, but it's not like it's the first time...

An unidentified vampire heavily hinted to be Genevieve also pops up a few times to give the heroes significant intelligence.

A RagtagBunchOfMisfits travel to the HauntedCastle of the EvilOverlord, Constant Drachenfels. They fall to his minions and his {{Death Trap}}s one by one until only the [[PrinceCharming brave prince]] remains to fight the sorcerer and vanquish him at last.

That's the prologue. Twenty five years later, Detlef Sierck, the Empire's greatest playwright, is rescued from debtor's jail by the Crown Prince Oswald. Oswald has a proposition for him: he wants to produce a play about his defeat of the Great Enchanter Drachenfels, and he wants Detlef to write and star in it. The original band who travelled with Oswald are reunited for the play's premiere, a one-time performance staged in the very walls of Drachenfels' abandoned fortress, attended by all the nobility of the Empire.

* ContinuitySnarl: The later stories name drop ''Literature/GotrekAndFelix'' as contemporary heroes and ''Beasts in Velvet'' follows up on plot threads from ''Skavenslayer'', but this series is treated as having happened before Felix's lifetime there.

''Drachenfels'' is a TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} novel by Creator/KimNewman under his Jack Yeovil pen name, first published back in 1989. It occupies a bizarre place in the Warhammer canon, suffering from a huge, setting-wide case of CharacterizationMarchesOn. Constant Drachenfels hasn't been mentioned in the background for years, having long since been displaced by Nagash the Black as the setting's necromantic BigBad. Details like goblins being willing to work for humans and vampires mingling relatively openly in Imperial society will look like massive errors to anyone who got into the fandom any time after the early nineties. Thing is, people ''really'' like it, so GamesWorkshop keep it in print and other authors give it {{Shout Out}}s on a regular basis.
