Warhammer: Into the Old World

Letters from Siegfriedhoff

Greetings Master Silverforge

My letter today must necessarily be brief. After our trial at the Abbey of Morr, Abbot Geistwache told us that our strange dreams were caused by someone—-or something—-that was testing our knowledge and resolve. We agreed that we would assist the Abbot in scouting out the town of Helfurt east of Siegfriedhoff, where the undead were rumored to be walking the streets unchecked. We did a bit of investigation around the abbey and made some interesting discoveries. First, we found a hidden library that contained more cryptic runes that we have yet to decipher and a lead box containing a foul bit of Skaven magic—-a pendant that oozed greenish smoke. Rudi pocketed the pendant and Wertha and Mother Ursula took the important scholarly papers. Second, we discovered the sarcophogus of Giovanni Lanfranchi, the famous Tilean vampire hunter! Inside, we discovered his spear Donnacanto, which sounded with heavenly music when unsheathed. Haleon returned later to “liberate” the weapon so that it might be used again in battle. Third, we uncovered a Skaven plot to steal the pendant, which we thwarted, but not before both Gottri and Rudi were poisoned (luckily, it was not fatal). Alas, the Skaven assassin escaped into the night, but without the pendant.

Letters from the Vampire Tower
Session from 20 November

Greetings Master Silverforge,
After the deal at the play we left ourselves a few days to rest and figure out what to do. Gottri we noticed had taken to a melancholy state of pondering life and that it was all eventually won’t matter. The major signs were that he was dirtier than usual plus stone cold sober. Mother Ursala had a point of concern in Gottri not that he was sober but because she could tell he had gone bat shit crazy and off the deep end. Some of us had some contentions about the method to get his mind right, I voted against surgery but we all agreed a priestess of Shalaya would be best. The part we argued on was how to get him to willing go, I wasn’t about to wrestle a dwarf to the temple against his will what he could easily go berserk and start chopping us up with a rune ax but Haleon seemed hell bent on catching him when he was sleeping and having Ursala attempt to cure him.

Letters from Wolfenburg 2
Session on November 8th

Hello again Silverforge:

The director of Heldenhammer! explained there were several more acting positions freshly opened up since several of his actors had gone ill or gone missing. We all gave each other a cynical knowing look. We each decided to help in our own ways. Rudi mentioned looking into the current locals to see if people wanted to get involved with his “local community outreach program.” Rudi was gone with Gregor most of the day looking into his affairs——-he didn’t come back all beaten up so I guess things went in his favor. Several kids and a rotund sweating older bald man seemed to be following him before he shooed them away as we made our way to the play in the afternoon. Rudi seemed pretty pleased with himself.

Greetings Silverforge!

This is Rudi Roundtopp writing. Well I do like to tell a good tale! Drinking good dwarven ale has gotten the better of us—-even Gottri—-and we really have not gotten that much accomplished except several bouts of blacking out from drinking.

Letters from Back into the Drakwald
October 25th Session

Greetings Master Silverforge,

We found ourselves back in the Drakwald again slowly edging closer to civilization in the dark forests. As we walked into the small town of Kierkfdorf, the moon Moorslieb was high. We proceeded into our normal downtime rituals, Gottri getting drunk and boasting of his new ax and how he’d killed a vampire and troll in the last two days, Wertha looking for someone to gamble with and Rudi right behind her scanning the locals for an easy mark. I saw that Rudi was in the middle of a story, embellished of course, of one of our adventures. The local crowd was abuzz with the sight of an elf and the townsfolk were deeply suspicious of us. Wertha was also a subject of interest, though no one wanted to insult her because they were unsure if she was a priestess of Rhea or a druidic mage of the college of magic.

Letters from Altdorf 5a (Post Script)
Oct 11 Session (after leaving Altdorf)

PS

The trip up the river was uneventful. We docked at a small town and the crew explained they would be docked for the next week if we wanted a ride back. We made our way through with the help of a guide to where we needed to be going, Ruhrhoff. Wertha was about to say something I noticed before we pushed branches aside and the waft of nauseating stench and filth washed over us like a fire in our noses. “I think there’s a Troll” she said with a sigh. The troll looked at us surprised, around him were the bones of several people that looked to be human when they were alive, a farmer currently being gnawed on. The sheer amount of feces around the creature was boggling and I don’t really want to think if it was his or from what…

Oct 11 Session

Salutations Master Silverforge,

In the past two weeks I have spent most of my time recuperating from my injuries. Gottri and Haleon spent their time healing from their injuries as did I. Wertha enrolled in the Jade School of Magic and received her Imperial License. Ravindale seemed to up and vanish. Haleon speculated that Ravindale considered life around non elves to be too chaotic and deadly, even for one who had lived as a Kithband Warrior. Rudi visited us in the hospital, but was always gone at odd hours and often came back slightly battered. He never would give us an upfront answer on what he had been up to besides the cryptic “doing what needs been doin’”, we suspected he wasn’t spending his time with the homeless and orphans doing charitable acts but more likely things of a more nefarious nature or at least nefarious in training. Ursula had spent her time assisting at the temple.

Greetings Master Silverforge

My apologies. You might be concerned by the lateness of my correspondence but in retrospect it makes sense due to my being unconscious. One of the sisters of the Shallyan temple has been kind enough to write for Rudi since his injuries have left him a bit… occupied. I left off my last letter with our defeat of a band of beastmen and heard the unholy scream of some sort of beast or demon. We were still in the haunted graveyard of Altdorf destroying the unholy dagger that Oldenhaller wanted for Sigmar knows what purpose.

Letter from Altdorf 3

Hello again Master Silverforge

We spent much time talking with various factions——-but I will give it away that by the end of the night we were knee-deep in the bodies of beastmen and a surprise guest once they were all slain. When I last left off we were at Lord Fredrick’s place and had just been given, (well some of us anyway), gifts to aid in our fight against chaos. We met Rutger at Lord Frederick’s house and heard that Kirsten was in town as well. Much to Rudi’s disappointment, she was off taking care of other affairs.

August 23 Session

Greetings Master Silverforge

My apologies on the lateness of my correspondence, it seems the last letter Rudi wrote was conveniently on the only piece of paper available to hold his deep friend sausage sandwich he got from a street vendor. In any event our latest endeavor had us chasing Karl and company and we were catching our breath since Karl and his men had attempted to move to the front of the long line for entry to Altdorf to see the Emperor and be welcomed as the third coming of Sigmar. After being turned away by a high ranking official and armed guard we watched as Karl’s men commandeered a stagecoach and to see Karl get shoved into a coffin as they raced to another side gate for entry. I talk more on that though when I retell you of what happened at the camp and how we ended up outside the city walls of Altdorf.
