Warhammer: Into the Old World

Letters from Kislev 4
Game Session Feb 19th

Master Silverforge,

After our break held up in a safe area protected by our pseudo wall of bodies we explored farther into the caves. We didn’t expect to walk into a familiar face and a former enemy, Wilheim the blood knight vampire. We found him pacing and looked at us as if seeing the tool or item you’re looking for. As he asked us if we had found the key yet we all twitched. He had been walking around it seemed for some time trying to figure out how to open the box he was holding. It did make sense to need a key to open the box until Rudi asked what was in the box. A key being the reply sent Rudi on a spiral down that wore down our patience as much as the vampire. Rudi finally got Wilheim to let him see the box lock after yelling again the key to open the box was not the key locked inside the box. After some careful inspecting when Rudi asked if he had the key Rudi kind of nodded pointing at Gottri and his ax. Rudi asked what we would get out of helping with the box Wilhiem was honest as always and explained he’d have the key and he may or may not kill us depending on what else he need. Rudi not liking the answer, (the usual promise of gold being his favor), promptly pulled out a pistol and started shooting and as usual all hell broke loose.

Master Silverforge,
There’s nothing as wild as a dwarf who thought he was dead waking up, except maybe a dwarf waking up from a night of drinking. His hand fumbled and found his ax hilt and squeezed it tightly his knuckles turning white and his eyes slowly closed as he sighed in relief. His head still in Ursala’s lap I lay into him hard.

Season 3 Episode 1

Episode 1: Downward Spiral into the Darkness

Congratulation to the group for surviving 30 adventuring sessions.

Master Silverforge,
As you recall from my visit home and the look on my face when I arrived after my last letter the world has changed much showing up with a young girl and asking you to take care of her in hind sight was quite comical from your expression. Me a father? I had only been gone less than two months. But as much odd and insane things that had happened in that dreaded cave I found the world I knew above ground to have muddled as well if you recall from my comments before I left Anya in your care. I know I haven’t sent you any letters but after joining the order of the Snow King I rarely had time, members of the Cult of Ulric even in these dire times were enlisted in the fight and/or evacualtion of citizens of the Empire in the mass transit caracans away from the warfront as they erupted over the northern and western borders of the Empire like wild fire. It was good to see you again recently and I was surprised you still let Anya stay around, seeing a young lass frown and imitate you seems somewhat comical but like most chiIdren I think she likes you since you are fair but firm. As for the old fellowship after a year you knew from when I came to get you what happened on the way from our talks with the others on our way to Nuln in the refugee caravan.

Greetings Silverforge,

It seems we survive another day and Ulric smiles down on our violent lives.

After defeating the spiders Rudy chased down Gregor and we found Gory our dwarven guide as well. After a bit to catch our breath we actually took a moment to look around. We ventured forward a bit and came to a three way stop, taking the advice of Rudi we went right. Rudi chimed that you can’t go wrong if you go right. With no real plan we ventured this way. After a while we came to another intersection that split off in four more different directions plus the way we came. Going right again Kirsten stopped us saying she felt a need to scout ahead this time since we seemed to have a habit of walking right into trouble. Gottri admitted only that he liked trouble and having it readily available for him to get into made for killing things quite convenient.

April 10th Session


Time down here blurs, without night and day we grew weary surprisingly as well as have the notion to press on when we are under the impression we should rest. I’m not really sure about the frequency of these letters but I guess you’ll get them when you get them. After meeting up to Gottri and catching our breath we pressed forward in the direction of Gottri’s wounded Goblin quarry. We found dried splotches of blood periodically but no goblins.

Session from April 22nd


We woke up slightly groggy but alive. Considering the conditions getting any sleep at all was no small feat. The barricade of Orc savages was hacked down and we made our way to the pits. No one seemed to be around the orcs no doubt has fled deeper into their small kingdom. Some more agile than others jumped across the pit while Gregor, Ursala, and our dwarven guide showed little skill in jumping across the gap since they all fell in. Gottri simply jumped down making no idea of being able to jump across. But since his destination was planned he took no damage and simply climbed up the other side as others were tossed rope. Everyone was out of the pit before anyone realized our guide, now unconscious had no one to wake him up or carry him out. No one else wanted to climb down and ideas of volunteering me to dutifully climb down from Kirsten got a wry laugh out of me. Fashioning a lasso from one end of the rope I snagged the stout fellow around the waist jerking it tight before pulling him up. I might not be a wizard but I’m far from a simpleton.

Greetings Master Silverforge,

With the bodies laid to rest and last rights performed we turned out attentions to the large ornate tomb in the middle of the room the shadow figure had originally be next to. Kirsten was the first to step up to check the tomb; I asked if she wanted to check for traps to which she fool-heartedly dismissed as unnecessary. From the bottom of the steps up I thought it looked clear. Kirsten scoffed and looked up as she walked up the stairs, the yelp and wails that followed though were almost tell tale of a trap when she disappeared. She called for a rope or assistance of something or anything to get her out.

At times I wonder how we’re still alive.

Talks of going back up to get Ursala something else to wear or more armor was quickly dismissed by Kirsten and Gottri since they deemed it a waste of time. We crossed the river by the snotlings area after Wertha communed with it. Some undead being had traversed over it. We had found our shadowy figure. We found a shaft to which everyone argued how to get down. Finally I suggested we just use the climbing equipment we had which seemed to work.

July 15th 2012 Session

I have never felt the anguish of being imprisoned but we have just come from under the mountain and in the first few minutes of daylight I realize how I have missed it and the ache of the tunnels and the battles thus far within. On the bright side a few of your biggest annoyances as a dwarf apart from elves have meet their fate either in lava or lay dead where they stood attempting to fight. On the brighter side (yes no downside this turn around!) we broke up some trade transactions between Skaven and Greenskins, rather nasty lot on both end. Only issue now is how we get down from the side of the mountain we’re on… In any event I’ll tell you in greater detail how we trounced a dozen Greenskins and a Dwarven fortress overrun by Skaven. In truth we just stumbled into the whole thing… Slaughter first figure out the details of what the wee beasties were doing later I suppose…

Normally I don’t speak ill of dwarves but this self righteous useless sack of flesh is the exception. Let me relay how our dwarven guide worked himself out of getting paid and screwing us over in the process. Or at least we thought.
