I sigh. "Relax. Well pick you up some proper armor."

I throw her my cloak.

She thanks you and pulls the cloak tight over herself.

"Valten, meet my mother. Long story how she got here... and why she looks like she's in her early 20s again I don't know."

He stares, and stares, and stares....finally he just nods and heads out muttering, "gotta get a drink, not taking this shit sober."

Your...mother turns and stares at you wondering what the hell that was.

And the lesson of the story is don't let scary men who bless their warhammers daily smack you in the head with one.

You wake up HOURS later with a splitting headache and double vision.

EVERYONE is anxious... it seems the Ur-Ulric almost had an apoxia and was about THIS close to declaring it an assasnation attempt.

The Templar needless to say is in trouble. You want to do something?

OW OW OW OW MUTHERFUCKING OW!

Once I'm lucid enough I get the Ar-Ulric to stand down saying that I brought that on myself and I should have accounted for holy power as a force multiplier. I asked the man to help me prove a point and he did that. Though maybe next time I should get a helmet....

On the other hand my head should have turned my skull into a fine mist NOT just gonged the fuck out of me. So it still proves a point. Just found a limit is all. So let him go. Also ask if he could come with us, someone who can hit that godsdamn hard should have a place with us. Just watch where you swing that thing in the future.

She slips into a very very very thick romanian sounding accept. Seriously, she sounds like she fell out of a Dracula movie.

"When I was a child my parents favored Sylvanian over Reikspiel. It took me over a year to coach myself to speak in a proper accent."

And that explains why a girl from deepest sylvania sounds like a reasonably well bred Reiklander.

I blink at how thick it sounded, damn that's impressive. I tell her she's done a VERY good job with her Reikspiel not many could do so well I think. So would she willing to teach me? I'd rather not have a pack of nuts who actually like those undead fucks plotting right infront of me if I could help it.

As for resistance that normally ends in being eaten and added to the Count's army... as a Zombie.

True but I'll just keep that information stored away for later.

Burn down Inns and Barns, kill people in brawls. Got it.

"I SAID DON'T!" I snarl this, with teeth bared, and I would imagine my eyes practically glow at this point. Maybe acting like an alpha would cow the rest of the pack, I hope...

Groan. Deep groan.

I clap him on the shoulders and tell the man, "Cheer up! You're with Ulric's personal Champion and Sigmar come again, on a quest to find the lost hammer of the founder of the empire. This should be your paradise my good man." I say good-naturedly

Bastard fights dirty.

When he goes up against Archaon he won't have the luxury to fight like he was in a noble duel so good on him.

one hundred sider.

You see 5 of them, well maybe 6 because one of them is female...and heavily pregnant of all things. And that cry you heard....dear god you think she's going into labor...right here and right now....

You know, considering you were dead and literally fell out of one of a dream... I wonder if your presence can't in some way be attributed to Morr?

Would probably make your presence here make a lot more sense to the locals.

OW OW OW OW MUTHERFUCKING OW!

There's a bump. A big one.

Once I'm lucid enough I get the Ar-Ulric to stand down saying that I brought that on myself and I should have accounted for holy power as a force multiplier.  I asked the man to help me prove a point and he did that.  Though maybe next time I should get a helmet....

He accepts. Begrudgingly. Do you go and see the Templar to make sure HE is alright?

On the other hand my head should have turned my skull into a fine mist NOT just gonged the fuck out of me.  So it still proves a point.  Just found a limit is all.  So let him go.  Also ask if he could come with us, someone who can hit that godsdamn hard should have a place with us.  Just watch where you swing that thing in the future.

"Next time do not ask strange men to hit you in the head with their hammers."

I blink at how thick it sounded, damn that's impressive.  I tell her she's done a VERY good job with her Reikspiel not many could do so well I think.  So would she willing to teach me?  I'd rather not have a pack of nuts who actually like those undead fucks plotting right infront of me if I could help it.

She smirks. If you'll teacher her Norskin.

True but I'll just keep that information stored away for later.

Alright.

"I SAID DON'T!"  I snarl this, with teeth bared, and I would imagine my eyes practically glow at this point.  Maybe acting like an alpha would cow the rest of the pack, I hope...

They all start laughing.

I clap him on the shoulders and tell the man, "Cheer up!  You're with Ulric's personal Champion and Sigmar come again, on a quest to find the lost hammer of the founder of the empire.  This should be your paradise my good man."  I say good-naturedly

Oh, he's honored to be part of this... but...

The Ulricians are pretty much anti-flagellants. They're flee bitten madmen who pretty much are drunken berserkers.

Between their parting and your... nighttime activities, he hasn't slept properly in almost a week.

When he goes up against Archaon he won't have the luxury to fight like he was in a noble duel so good on him.

He knows.

Dice gods don't fail me now!

And failed!

Thankfully you told Valten what to look for and he picks it up in moments.

Vargr Skarin

Gear: The usual, hunting spears, sling and a bag of metal shot, boar-hide cloak

Loot: all of 14 silver's worth to his name

Brian Boru wrote:They're also Artois knights, they're absurdly practical compared to others out there.  Brionne knights, Brinonne knights would be on her like ants at a broken down popsicle stand.  Or almost anywhere else....

Hm. I suppose.

Mort does his best NOT to let out how much a playboy he is, but it's a bit hard when you've seduced grandmothers before, (DAMMIT YOU THOUGHT YOU SUPPRESSED THAT!).  He does let out that he actually IS good at being a bard, (unlike nearly every Tom, Dick, or Harry in Brionne who only THINKS that he is).

Well, if he has a talent, he should use it. As long as it's not the _other_ one. That's gotten him into a disproportionate amount of trouble thus far.

The two girls from the forest are a bit stereotypical of Artois ladies, isolated, indpendent, and more skilled at what many might consider peasant work than ladies of other duchies.  However considering their circumstances that repetoir of skills is something of a necsecity.

Young de Larret you learn is very good at book balancing, something that kinda goes over the heads of the other three, no need for the girls, and not his interest in Mort although his father was Castellean of Brionne castle.

All three have something in common. They're not just there to sit back and look pretty. I spend more than a bit of time talking to each of the ladies about what it is they enjoy doing, and their contribution to how lands are run or administered. And even if balancing books seems to go over Mort's and two of the ladies' heads, I describe the gist in simple terms, in relation to a holding's supplies and strength of arms. Armies march on their stomachs and fight with their purses after all.

Well when you spar with him you learn that while he isn't as strong as some Bretonnian knights, he's fast, nimble, and very skilled with a single handed blade.  You still beat the stuffing out of him, hopefully that will keep him from chasing skirts that are married.  Cossack still glares death at Mort when he thinks the young man isn't looking.

As long as he's actually improving. If so, regular morning sparring. ^^

Dwarves... travelling in Skaven Tunnel infested by tons of Skaven? Slaves perhaps to the Skaven? If so I'll have to get them back to a Dwarven hold or to a Sigmarite church or something since Sigmar's commandments (IIRC) include helping the Dwarfs anyway possible.

You see 5 of them, well maybe 6 because one of them is female...and heavily pregnant of all things.  And that cry you heard....dear god you think she's going into labor...right here and right now....

Well... shit. I'll motion to Kyra and help her down in the tunnel. Elves and Dorfs don't mix, but hopefully given the carnage I wrought in the tunnel the Dorfs will be too afraid to start something. Since I've got no skill that can help with this but Kyra might.

I'll ask her if she can help. If not in the birthing then healing and strengthening the mother after the birth as well as taking a look at the baby dwarf.

I'll talk to the Dwarves and find out who they are too, also, try to reassure them as much as possible that we don't mean harm.

Excellent, more fitting that way. I help the others up and we follow down the path, I keep my ax and shield ready for whatever is coming up ahead. My memory is a bit hazy about what's ahead but I do know that a necropolis is one of the first checkpoints on our trek.

Well one of the forest ladies enjoys hawking while the other's favorite hobby is needlework. De Larret on the other hand is something of a bookworm. Not to the exclusion of all else but they're wonderful things to get lost in on dull days.

When they get the idea of what she's good at all three have more respect for her talents even if they still don't understand all the intricacies of it. de Larret seems happy that someone seems impressed at her talents for once besides her father.

They're slaves, most likely called in for some sort of stone work, and the female was brought along as motivation.

Neither side wants to have anything to do with the other and you fear a fight might break out when another squeal of pain comes from the dwarfess.

You also get dragooned into helping....you learn two things....one female dwarves have some necessarily WIDE hips....and two dwarves are infact NOT born with a beard....though considering the babe was female you still don't have complete proof for that theory. As the She-Dwarf cuddles her child, one of the other dwarves, slightly bigger than the others and with an inch-longer beard bows his head to the both of you, thanking you for aiding his lover and daughter. He doesn't say wife because since they were captured young they never got the opportunity to do the specific marriage rituals.

They're from the grey mountains originally. Karak norn, mining families, that's why they were being brought along, they were being made to point out to their masters how best to attack the hold. His woman and child's lives were being used as incentives to go along.

Their dead 'masters' now. Glad I managed to short circuit this bunch. Do they know of any other groups of Skaven trying the same thing? If there are others, may as well interrupt them as well.

If I'm not too far from Karak Norn I can likely escort these dwarves to there. Or if the Imperial city is closer, to that city to request the aid of the Sigmarites there to convey the Dorfs to their hold safely.

But first, I'll see what they would prefer.

Why wouldn't they?

Glad it turned out well.

The look in his eyes when he turns back to his woman and child seems to confirm that.

Their dead 'masters' now. Glad I managed to short circuit this bunch. Do they know of any other groups of Skaven trying the same thing? If there are others, may as well interrupt them as well.

Unsure exactly how many but there might be at least 6 or 7 more groups heading to Nuln for some mad caper in the underground.

If I'm not too far from Karak Norn I can likely escort these dwarves to there. Or if the Imperial city is closer, to that city to request the aid of the Sigmarites there to convey the Dorfs to their hold safely.

All three women blink when you mention that you can read and apparently are an avid reader, Norscans aren't well known for their letters.

I also mention that while I've never tried hawking, I do have a bit of experience in hunting with animals. And that I'd invite them out for a day trip of such if they're interested, but there's that problem of disappearing into the woods with a burly Norscan and several dozens of wolves.

The lady who's hobby is hawking seems interested at that and asks how you hunt with the wolves, aren't they wild beasts? How do you control them anyway?

Again, progress. ^^ Also, if Larret really does intend to split from the duchy - and I'm not really seeing indications of that in Maria - we might just have planted a seed of dissent.

She doesn't really want to do so and for most folk it's really the fear that the Duke of Lyonesse is going to try and snap up Larret, and it already is one of the biggest Duchies in the kingdom when it took away the decent part of Mousillon.

Words of wisdom he admits. He doubts though that the angry male relations will ever cease being a risk, if he gets better then so will they, they're jerks like that.

Why do you think she doesn't like it? She had to live like that for YEARS!

And you do manage to get a dress, though it DOES seems a hair short, and tight around the hips.

The man spent last night scourging himself in penance. He has a back that looks like burger and he's begging your forgiveness.

Can't exactly be horrified, just accept his apologies and forgive him though mention I'm at fault as well for asking him to do that.

"Quite" The comment was so dry it could dehydrate a melon

Heh

She has a good ear for languages.

Good.

So, whores? Wink

If it works then I'll use it. Or enough booze to kill a moose.

IF you do... d100!

We'll give it a try.

The look in his eyes when he turns back to his woman and child seems to confirm that.

Another piece of good done in this crapsack world.

Unsure exactly how many but there might be at least 6 or 7 more groups heading to Nuln for some mad caper in the underground.

Right, if I can carry all the dorfs and Kyra and make it to Nuln safely, I'll do that. Or, if the baby is too young to take that, I'll get the Dorfs to make a makeshift sled or something that I can use to carry them all.

Either way, I'll need to get them to Nuln so that I can circle around the city and get the Skaven tunnels without having to worry about non-combatants and others that are not as strong as me. Once I manage to get them safely to Nuln, I'll circle around the city, listening for any Skaven underground. Once found I'll rinse and repeat what i did here, crush the tunnel, get in among the Skaven and slaughter my way through them.

Oh, before that, I'll need to warn the city garrison that the Skaven are coming.

The lady who's hobby is hawking seems interested at that and asks how you hunt with the wolves, aren't they wild beasts?  How do you control them anyway?

"They've listened to me since my first hunt," technically true. "It's something I've inherited from an ancestor of mine apparently. Once I knew Mort here would be sent to Artois and decided to come along, I gathered a pack in Brionne and had them come with."

And if they're skeptical, I'll lead us out to a balcony and howl a greeting into the night. Probably after closing the doors behind us though, as to not disturb the goings on inside too much.

She doesn't really want to do so and for most folk it's really the fear that the Duke of Lyonesse is going to try and snap up Larret, and it already is one of the biggest Duchies in the kingdom when it took away the decent part of Mousillon.

How would he attempt that, then? Unless ... hm ... if Maria lists it as a genuine concern, did she notice something in the ledgers? I mean, if it were me, I'd try to make headway towards that goal through the economy. Drive down prices of local goods with cheap imports, buy out the businesses that are now struggling for a song and a half either yourself or through local intermediaries already in your pockets, and so on.

Words of wisdom he admits.  He doubts though that the angry male relations will ever cease being a risk, if he gets better then so will they, they're jerks like that.

"We'll just have to find you something suitably impressive to kill and make them think twice. Of course, that'll probably just lead to people tracking you down and challenging you to duels to prove their prowess, which sort of ends in the same situation," I muse.

Well actually her father wants to be independent of any of the duchies answering directly to the crown, more prestige that way, though she begs you don't breath of a word of that elsewhere.

"Once again not surprised, though I expect these..."high" elves, are prouder than cats yes?"

"All the elves here are. Here the elves basically have an unlimited lifespan so their culture is much more stagnant. They're all decedents of the High Elves of Ulthuan. The high elves are possibly the oldest race on the planet and honestly can take credit for saving the world during the coming of chaos. They are the ones who created the vortex in the middle of Ulthuan responsible for filtering the chaotic energy coming off of the polar chaos gates into the eight winds of magic. They're smug dicks who see humans as lesser beings, but they're not as blatantly assholish as the Thalmor."

"The Dark Elves of Naggaroth are pretty much debased elves who follow the exiled son of one of the former phoneix kings who failed to take power ad left with his followers who worship the blooded handed god of murder, Khane. They are slavers and sadistic chaos worshipers. Pretty much think of all the nasty stories of the elves from the age of heroes... they're actually worse than the Thalmor..."

"The Wood Elves of Athel Loren are the decedents of Elven colonists who were stranded on this continent during the War of the Beard. They've become intensely xenophobic tree huggers who have basically turned the land of Bretonnia into their personal bitch. Their fay queen is basically the true face of the Bretonnian goddess, the Lady of the Lake... and they kidnap the magically sensitive children of that nation inorder to control magic. They're a nasty bunch, but not outright EVIL as the Dark Elves... mainly because here magic is in the blood and magic users without training is a recipe for disaster."

There's a fire in his eyes. "Of course!"

Glad to have you!

Be glad you have lots of gold.

Urrrgh.

If we have to we'll come back to clean things up.  But right now speed's of the essence.

I promise to keep her safe.

well, the thugs are dealt with rather brutally... basically handed over to the local roadwardens who then hand them over to the local magistrate.

They're all dangling from ropes by the end of the day...

"Very diplomatic."

"You're being crazy again and doing insane things, I have a right to not want to deal with this shit sober."

"By the way, considering how you like to write everything down we need to get you a new journal."

The look of horror at not having a journal at this moment would be hilarious.

"All the elves here are. Here the elves basically have an unlimited lifespan so their culture is much more stagnant. They're all decedents of the High Elves of Ulthuan. The high elves are possibly the oldest race on the planet and honestly can take credit for saving the world during the coming of chaos. They are the ones who created the vortex in the middle of Ulthuan responsible for filtering the chaotic energy coming off of the polar chaos gates into the eight winds of magic. They're smug dicks who see humans as lesser beings, but they're not as blatantly assholish as the Thalmor."

"So punching them in the dick and knicking their stuff is bad..."

"The Dark Elves of Naggaroth are pretty much debased elves who follow the exiled son of one of the former phoneix kings who failed to take power ad left with his followers who worship the blooded handed god of murder, Khane. They are slavers and sadistic chaos worshipers. Pretty much think of all the nasty stories of the elves from the age of heroes... they're actually worse than the Thalmor..."

"Do they want to destroy reality in a mad attempt to become gods? Then they aren't as bad as the Thalmor."

"The Wood Elves of Athel Loren are the decedents of Elven colonists who were stranded on this continent during the War of the Beard. They've become intensely xenophobic tree huggers who have basically turned the land of Bretonnia into their personal bitch. Their fay queen is basically the true face of the Bretonnian goddess, the Lady of the Lake... and they kidnap the magically sensitive children of that nation inorder to control magic. They're a nasty bunch, but not outright EVIL as the Dark Elves... mainly because here magic is in the blood and magic users without training is a recipe for disaster."

"...so when can we punch these Bosmer Knock-offs in the dick and take their stuff?"

Heh.

OOC: I always wondered why women faint so easily in this stuff.

"There will be plenty of time for justice later... and I'm sure he has lots of friend who will burn with him."

The look of distilled HATE directed at Kyupers is burning even when you're NOT the target.

"Yes," I reply calmly. "I will. Of that I give my word of honor, and I am sure Valten here will do the same."

Valten at that moment stands up and says that he'll do all he can to protect the rights of Marienburg, but he also extols the people to return to Empire as dark times are ahead and the councils of Marienburg are not capable of leading the city through the storm.

There's silence for a while then the voice from before says, "Well if you can clean this town up and not let all those high and mighties put us over the barrel, then I ain't got any complaints, s'not like votes really counted f'r anything."

Probably a different form of magic all together. Kind of like how the Thu'um and magic are both magical in nature but function along different lines.

If anything you offer these people a form of magic that is not in any way bound to the winds. One that they can use without fear of tzeentch's curse.

Shit. Forgot to have you roll a d10 and d100.

You reach blackfire pass with a couple of hangups but you're now headed south.

There's a palpable aura of tension in the air....

They are until you're little presentation, the hundreds of howls in response put those doubts to rest right then and there.

So, would they like to come hunting sometime in the coming days? Well, if they can convince their relations the big bad Norscan isn't going to make off with them and skin and eat them somewhere in the woods.

Well actually her father wants to be independent of any of the duchies answering directly to the crown, more prestige that way, though she begs you don't breath of a word of that elsewhere.

That ... might go well but it might also go horribly. I tell her they won't find out from me, but that I've already heard rumblings about Larret leaving Artois from other sources and there has to be some resentment building if those rumors are persisting. She might want to inform her father about that.

That makes his eyes glaze a bit,...and then there's the drool...you broke him with bisexual beauties with him being the one Y in the mix....might want to get some cold water there.

Grab a bucket of drinking water and upend it over his head to snap him out of it.

Well at the rate you tore down the road...you think you beat any pack of rodents.

Excellent.

Well you reach the city with little trouble, when you get to the gates you're stopped and asked what your purpose it and what is their story, gesturing to the dwarves.

"I and my companion was going our way, minding our own business when I heard something wrong beneath our feet. I decided to dig down and lo and behold I found a bunch of rat like beastmen forcing these dwarves to dig a tunnel for them. After a brief battle, we managed to kill the beastmen and save these dwarves. That's the good news, but the bad news is, from what I've gathered, there's multiple other bands of these 'beastmen' digging towards the city, the city garrison has to be alerted, and I'd like these dwarves to be given food and shelter until their kin can come retrieve them. My companion and I will be circling the city in order to find the tunnels. If you would like details, ask the dwarves."

OOC: I'm gonna laugh when the Wood Elves find out what Psyckosama's been saying about them, because most of that is false. Oh, and the Bretonnians will be pissed too. 8th Edition Army book for Wood Elves specifically state that the Laduy of the Lake is a completely separate entity from Ariel.

Hopefully we figured something out without causing the Sigmarite priest to go cookoo. And hopefully the Wolfkin didn't burn down too many villages on the way south.

There's a palpable aura of tension in the air....

As we march down the pass, I keep an eye out for the tell tale sign of the side pass leading into mountains, it should be a ways above our head but not too high. I also keep an eye on Valten to see how he reacts.

Once we find the pass I through up a line and everyone who can clamber up, clambers up while I express deliver all the gear and anyone who can't make the climb. Once we reach the valley where the necropolis is I look out for the shrine, once I find that I point to it and declare, "That's our target, we need to move fast through here, there's something about this place that makes my hair stand on end."

I'm sure Cosmina is sensing it as well.

No jesting.

Hawking girl is interested and interestingly enough the young daughter of the independent minded marquis Larret is interested as well.

I tell her they won't find out from me, but that I've already heard rumblings about Larret leaving Artois from other sources and there has to be some resentment building if those rumors are persisting.

She pales a little but thanks you for the warning and says she'll do so at the first chance.

The men look dubious but when the Dwarves corroborate they shrug and get the captain. An older man he doesn't look pleased about this but when he sees the dwarves and the infant he blinks and decides that you might need to see some higher authorities. You're quickly brought into the city and soon are brought to the headquarters of the Nuln city guard. You meet the head of the guard, a man name Heinrich von Troffen. He asks that you repeat your story and eschew the bullshit about beastmen, he knows what the rodents are.

Nah. They drank and slept with many a wench, but no real messes maid. Best behavior for a pack of berzerkers.

She looks at you and then looks at the place. "I want to try something but I need you to shield me."

I'll just make training a daily thing if I don't have anything else going on. In this case, though? Hunting it is.

Damned Skaven numbers.

"Alright, that makes things simpler. My companion and I were on the road headed to the city when we heard Skaven digging under the road. I decided to ruin their day and smashed my way into their tunnel and killed the rodents off. And wouldn't you know it? A group of Dwarves had been held captive by them, being forced to help them dig their way to the city. We killed or drove off the cowardly Skaven and saved the Dwarves. Good news is that they won't be using that tunnel. Bad news is that there are several more groups tunneling their way toward the city as we speak. If the garrison gets caught unprepared it'll be a bloodbath."

Heh we'll see.

OOC: Heh, there's been alot of retcons on Bretonnia. Like the short story The Court Beneath that has the male magic capable children being gathered and raised as the Lady's 'Break Open In Case of Emergency' magic knight strike force.
