Well, so far things not going exactly to plan. Whatever it is that is hurting my back will not go away. I need to figure out some way to return to being active but the constant pain is making it difficult.
So far I haven't had much success in moving forward with the plan. I'll try to rectify that this week. The magazine is moving forward, though probably at too slow a pace. If you're on the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group, I'll be pestering you more soon. I do have some cool stuff to share but I want to include as many people as possible.
On Sunday I played in a marathon session of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Ed. It was quite fun but I had to miss my son's track practice to finish it up. It was very tense, with a feeling of impending doom as we frantically searched for away to first get out and heal up, and second find anything that would help us defeat the horrifying monsters in the house.
I'm still working on how to play my character and not myself. I passed on a couple of opportunities that my character definitely would have/ should have seized upon.
There were only two of us, out of five, left standing at the end and fate points were necessary to achieve that.
It looks like we are about to embark upon a campaign but it is a mystery for now. I am trying to decide where best to go for the sake of the party. I'm on the Thief track right now, but one of the other guys is too. I'm toying with the idea of Tomb Robber so that I can get to Vampire Hunter and Witch Hunter. It would fit in with my backstory to some degree and with the horrible Beastmen and Chaos mutants I encountered in the last adventure.
Here's a picture of my character, Leopold, drawn by one of the other players.
So I'll set the scene. Our party consists of Slavatore "Sally" the Halfling and his bodyguard Genaro from Tilea, Lukas from Talabecland, Vincent and Leopold from Wissenland. We have been tasked with finding and removing relics from an abandoned wizard's house by the Witch Hunter Nihilus.
The gang minus Lukas has gone through most of the first floor and are pretty badly beat up with Sally in danger of losing his right hand.
We begin this session where we left off, in room 11 with Sally gravely injured. As we try to figure out what to do there is a knocking at the door, it's Lukas. We don't trust him at first but finally open the door.
We discuss our options and decide we should try to leave after searching the room. We spend 40 minutes doing so. The Library is mostly filled with old, boring books that are about 170 years old. Sally and Vincent, being the only ones who can read, find three of interest. #1 a report on the Heretical sect "Slithering Darkness" from 2228, Ubersreich, Hans Friedrich Inghearst. #2 "Poisoned Claw" sect that worships Skaven and it's travels from Skavenblight, N. Tilea, Black Mountains to Empire. Tavelli Family in league with Skaven. #3 Story of the Gesbenst family, spanning 100 years from the late 2100's. Powerful family of Witch Hunters.
I also just wanted to welcome some new followers. Iannick, Paul McWhirter, and Fred Jackson. Nobody has their own blogs listed in their profile but I think I know who Iannick is but maybe it's a common name in Canada. ;)
Thanks to Joe B. from Broken Paintbrush for linking to my magnetized jewelry tray post.
Gotta run. Cheers.
