Warhammer Quest: Death Below Karak Azgal

Discussion in 'Games Run By CPA Members' started by Oversoul, Jun 19, 2010.

  1. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    "Well, no, not these where we're standing. I'm talking more the unspoiled stone of the World's End Mountains, where man has yet to tread."
  2. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    You begin moving through the sewers. Almost immediately, you hear a familiar voice. Turning the corner, you see Corticruss. He is cornered by four thugs, brandishing weapons. Two of them are human, one is a dark elf, and the last is an ogre. They brandish weapons. One of the human thugs snarls...

    "Last chance. Where is it?"

    Corticruss points in your direction and addresses the thugs...

    "You're too late. My friends have arrived. Now you're outnumbered!"

    The thugs don't react at first, then they realize that it's not a trick. They gawk at you momentarily, then raise their weapons. Corticruss lifts a scroll above his head, then releases it...

    "Oops. I think that one's some kind of cataclysm. Oh no."

    The scroll darts through the air into the thugs, then explodes, engulfing them in flames. When the smoke clears, you see Corticruss sifting through the ashes, grinning.

    "I think that's all of them. At least for now. Thanks for your assistance. Here, I've scavenged a few trinkets from ones like these..."

    -Throg receives the Blood Sword.
    -Dorgath receives the Axe of Slaying.
    -Kelgar receives the Hammer of Spite.
    -Carrow receives the Surefire Bow.
    -Skullcrusher receives the Warningstone of Asuryan.
  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    "Corticruss! What are you doing down here? And thanks!" Dorgath tries to remember what an Axe of Slaying does.
  4. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Amazed at the demonstration, Skullcrusher just sort of stares at the mage. "That was an awesome display! Thank you for the completely unnecessary gift. As promised, here is your friend Carrow and crew."
  5. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Throg tries to remember who Corticuss is. Was he the homeless guy that tried to kill us by summoning legions of undead? Or is that someone else.

    Throg will then look up what a Blood Stone does in his Warhammer Quest guidebook.
  6. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    "Coticuss, What have you done and why are there factions looking for me?"
  7. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    If you actually find the book or a PDF of it, I don't know that it's in there. But I made a copy/paste error anyway, so good catch, apparently! I was going off one of the treasure cards: Blood Sword. I just went back and fixed it.

    I'll just update everyone's character sheets and post them all soon anyway. I'll assume Corticruss identifies any unidentified items...
  8. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yes, Dorgath hands over any unidentified items.
  9. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Sorry, guys. I was working on something else and I was planning to move this along today, but I lost track of the time. Pretty soon, I get to beta test The Elder Scrolls Online over the weekend. So I'm delaying this further still. Yes, I'm horrible. I will return on Monday, and I'll post a big update with everyone's character sheets and information regarding the party's arrival in Middenheim. You'll all get to level-up, by the way. Just not yet. Monday. I promise!

    Oh, and I apologize in advance if this holds up the Wizard's Tower game too, but it looks like that probably won't happen...
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    No problem. You just had your turn in Wizard's Tower so I'll just assume you don't have any responses to anything; if you can think of something you want to do, let me know.
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Corticruss leads the party out of the sewers and through Middenheim, a massive fortress-city. He brings you to a back room in one of the shops of the city's Merchant District, gives you bread and soup for dinner, and instructs you to wait for him to conclude some business. A while later, he returns and addresses the group...

    "Well, firstly, the three merchants you rescued from Karak Azgal wanted to reward you. They seemed to be in a hurry to leave. I think Throg scared them for some reason. Anyway, here you go..."

    -Throg gets his Warhelm back.
    -Throg gets his Lantern back.
    -Throg gets 700 gold.
    -Dorgath gets 700 gold.
    -Carrow gets 700 gold.
    -Kelgar gets 700 gold.
    -Skullcrusher gets 700 gold.

    "Now then, there's also the matter of your items..."

    The character sheets were here, but I exceeded the 10,000 character limit. Out of curiosity, am I the only CPA member to run into that limit? I've encountered it multiple times, and no one else has explicitly brought it up. I'm starting to feel like I might be just a bit too loquacious. Anyway, character sheets to follow...

    "This shop can buy any of your items that you wish to sell. Middenheim offers a wide selection of services. You can purchase new equipment, or perhaps some of you would like to visit the local training camp. When we're done here, spend the next few weeks doing whatever it is that you do. I'll find more information about what's going on and see what jobs might be available for you. The authorities here are interested in the presence of Chaos Gates in the tunnels underneath their city. You probably have more knowledge of the subject than almost anyone else in Middenheim, so that might be of some interest to them. We'll probably want to keep Skullcrusher and Throg out of sight for that, though. They might raise suspicions. I'll think of something.

    I'm also looking into the matter of this enchanted book Carrow found, and the subsequent nuisance of a bounty on his head. There are some wood elves, a little north of the Merchant District, that want him to go on some holy mission of some sort. I'll also see about informing Ironbeard Grunnson that you're in Middenheim. I believe you've completed his task. He might also want his grandfather's old warhammer back, if you do happen to see him again some time.

    Tomorrow, we'll probably all be in different parts of the city. So, while we're here, what else should we discuss?"

  14. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Name: Kelgar
    Wounds: 14
    Move: 4
    Weapon Skill: 2
    Ballistic Skill: 5+
    Strength: 3
    Toughness: 3(4)
    Initiative: 2
    Attacks: 1
    Damage: 1D6
    Pinning: 4+
    Luck: 0
    Willpower: 3
    Gold: 9,050

    Items:

    Warhammer: (1D6 + Strength damage, an additional 1D6 if to-hit roll is a natural 6). Worth 100 gold.

    Ornate Armor: +1 toughness. Cannot be sold.

    Holy Book of Sigmar: Used to cast blessings. Cannot be sold.

    Ring of Jade: This ring is reputed to contain a fragment of the Grand Theogonst's Jade Griffon, and to hold the power of healing within it. Whether this is true or not the magic of the ring seems to work. At the end of each turn, if the Priest is not on zero Wounds or dead, then the ring has a chance of healing him and any Warriors who are standing in adjacent squares. The Priest should roll 3D6. If he scores a double, he may heal a number of Wounds equal to the total of the doubles rolled. So for example. if he scores a double 4, then he may heal 8 Wounds. If he rolls three numbers the same, it still counts as a double. The Wounds are shared out between the Warrior Priest and any Warriors in adjacent squares to him as the Priest sees fit, with the limitation that all the points of healing from a single dice must be spent on a single Warrior. The Priest should nominate who he is going to heal before he rolls the dice. The Priest could take all the Wounds himself, give them all to another Warrior, or share them out between two Warriors, for instance. The Priest gets 5 gold for every Wound he heals on another Warrior (this is not deducted from the other Warrior's gold, but is a measure of the Priest's healing efforts). If the Priest rolls a double 1, then the ring is drained for that turn and works in reverse to revitalise itself. Each Warrior nominated for healing suffers 2 Wounds, with no deductions at all. The Priest may use the Ring of Jade once per turn. Cannot be sold.

    Ring of Command: Currently +1 Strength if to-hit roll is 6. Bonus changes with level. Cannot be sold.

    Invisibility Spell Scroll: Casts Invisibility. One use. Worth 200 gold.

    Lute: Worth more gold in larger settlements.

    Healing potion: Restores 1D6 Wounds. 2 remaining.

    Grunnson Full Healing Potion: Full restoration. Permanently adds +1 Starting Wounds. One use. Worth 0 gold.

    Provisions: 0

    Bandages: 0

    Hammer of Spite: At the start of each encounter, the wielder may choose a monster for the hammer to target. The wielder may move past all obstacles to reach an available space adjacent to the chosen monster. The wielder gets an initial ambush against the chosen monster, and an additional attack against the monster every turn until it is dead. If the Hammer of Spite strikes the killing blow on its target, the wielder gains double gold. Worth 600 gold.

    Special abilities: Each turn, the Warrior Priest may attempt to cast one blessing on himself or another Warrior. He rolls 1D6 and adds this to the power phase roll for the turn. If this is equal to or higher than the power required for the blessing (which is 7 for all of the initial blessings in the Holy Book), the blessing succeeds. If the Warrior Priest's blessing roll is a 1, the attempt automatically fails. The Priest begins with these blessings already written in his Holy Book...

    Scourge of Chaos: As the Priest reads aloud the words from his leather-bound tome, the Warriors feel their swords strike their foes with unprecedented accuracy and precision. The chosen Warrior's Attacks for the turn are all at +1 to hit as his hand is guided by the power of Sigmar. Call of the Brave: The Warriors' blows miraculously hit their targets despite the Monsters' best efforts to avoid them. The chosen Warrior may re-roll a single Attack which misses this turn.

    Vanquish: The power of Sigmar surges through the Warriors, who redouble their attacks upon the enemy. The chosen Warrior gains an extra Attack this turn.

    Healing Touch: Healing power infuses the the Priest and he imparts the effects of this power with a single touch. The chosen Warrior is healed of 2D6 Wounds.

    Attempting a blessing does not stop the Warrior Priest from carrying out any other actions, such as moving and fighting.

  17. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Oh, and since I just can't pass up the opportunity to septuple post, you guys should figure out what to do with the Gems of Life already. A reminder on how they work: one person carries one, another person carries the other. When one of the gem-holders dies, the gems can be reunited, consuming them and resurrecting the fallen gem-holder.
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    How many Gems do we have? enough for everyone to pair up?

    If none of the party wants my items (although it seems a spell-caster would want the energy jewel), I'd like to sell
    • Old Helmet
    • Incense of Araby
    • Nightmantle Shell Orb (it says 0 gold 'cause expended, maybe someone wants it as an ingredient to something, like grind it up or whatever?)
    • Ingots of Iron
    • Sword of Might
    • Sword of Defiance
    • One set of Battle Boots
    • Relic Blade
    • Blessed Sword
    • Pink Sapphire

    I'd then like to get some quarrels for my Crossbow and see if there's any Dwarven smith in town who might be able to forge my Runes. Also a Dwarven Trader in general to get more Firebombs and Smoke Bombs :)

    I thought we gave the Runehammer back - since we didn't, find a way to get it back to him.
  19. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Sell (or give to party members)

    • Bow: 1D6 + 3 damage. Worth 20 gold.
    • Eltharion's Bow: +1 to hit (Strength 3 bow). Worth 500 gold.
    • Sword (1D6 + Strength). Worth 15 gold.
    • Bane Sword (Goblins): Does double damage to goblins. Worth 500 gold.
    I'll need to fillup on arrows and provisions.
    Maybe find a dagger, a backpack, some rope, candles, flit and steel.
    I'd sell or trade my other weapons/equipment if Ifind anything better.

    If there are enough gems them split them up if not give them to the frontline fighters.

    Do we have a spellcaster amongst us? (not priest spells)

    I think I've brought it up before. It happens every time I post a new draft pool for the sports league.
