Warhammer: Alone Against the Night

Here Comes The New Boss

After the victory against the Goblin attack our heroes find themselves re-enforced and under a new command, Captain Kortig. He immediately installs his command post in the mess hall, and embarks on fortifying the lookout post in case of further attacks. Kortig’s new command several of the enlisted defenders including Adric Goodwin are given the ranking of “chosen man” for their efforts.

As the construction work progresses ranging parties are sent out. Some are parties of outriders others are infantry scouts. With the addition of light cavalry and specialist skirmishers the rangers are able to scout further and more effectively. After several uneventful ranging parties a terrorfied patrol comes back after finding the remains of the Goblin encampment. Rumours spread through the camp about a massacre and the goblins have all been decapitated their heads piled up and their bodies dismembered to form as strange symbol. Kortig summons Goodwin to put together a ranging party to gather information from the human settlements in the mountains to find out what is happening in the mountains. After traipsing around the Black Mountains speaking to confused charcoal burners, and some gold miners they come across another mining campment. As they approach they see smoke rising over the hill Emmeline Tanner is sent ahead to scout out the camp. She sees the miners under attacks from over 40 bedraggled and deformed humans, lead by a huge fur covered man. As the miners are killed they are decapitated and their heads piled up into a mound. The large man stabs his sword into the mound and cries “Blood for the Blood God!”. Lightning strikes his sword and the heads burst into blood red flames, then Emmeline is spotted by one of the mutated men. The large man tells his followers not to chase her, “Their time will come” he says ominously.

I hope sir that this finds you well. Since we parted ways I have been studing hard, if not for the interruptions.

I have had many a nighttime hour interrupted by the guard soldiers hollaring that there was something out there that had red eyes! I wouldn’t of believed it, and certainly the camp made sure they new it, until I was stretching. My legs and back out. There at the edge of torch light was a wolf shape with a shape attached to its back. Well I thought I would do my duty and inform the watch. And because of the last time I strongly suggested we investigated ourselves, rather than waking the whole camp to nothing, again.

Well off the three of us went, and soon came across danger. Oh I performed two spells really well, the first was the lights. I made them hover and follow the wolf shapes. We saw flash of green and the gaurs shot it. I knew it hit its target but later (once the entire camp was awake) the tracker couldn’t find anything. Oh well.

Then the same guards headed over to my tent, waffling about how we were in danger of being attacked and we needed to defend the camp. Of course as a student Mage I thought it best I tag along, even if it was to provide light.

Well all he’ll broke loose, but I was able to cast dart spell twice with success. We manage to defend the camp against the green things. In the camp afterwards they were saying they were goblins. Well they were 40 odd and we managed to whittle them to 31 before the rest of the camp joined the fray.

Downside to this success is I am not helping to defend an outpost. Sigh, at least I’ll get a room and a fire now.

I will continue to study the spells, sir.

Well that was a strange night, I got dragged into all that spooky night attack thing. I was minding my own business when that hunter came running over saying " she’s strong, she can help us!" I really should have told them where to put my hammer.

OK, they were right and there was an attack which was driven off, but now it get to go to some ‘middle of nowhere’ outpost, what will I do out there???

It's only a game....Isn't it?

With the characters created and our brave heroes are ready to take their first steps out of their ordinary lives and find that they have been touched by destiny; or touched in the head, the two are often the same.

What will become of our band of characters? Where will they go? Who will they meet?

Why are you looking at me? I’ve no bloody idea…

More Wine!
