The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – Traitor Unmasked (S3E12)

Captain's Log: 28th of Vorgeheim, 2513.

Going to gain an audience with Graf Boris himself. A proper audience this time. I swear to Sigmar, we all better get rewards for this like a new ship or something... I'm getting ahead of myself.

Rhea proved to be very self-congratulating. She w…

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – The Cultists' Den (S3E11)

Captain's Log: Still the 27th of Vorgeheim I think? I'm honestly losing both sleep and track of all this. Hunting evil so frequently does that to you, I suppose. Need to keep my head together... 2513. Right? Right.

Werner, The One and I shuffled our way into the important people's section of …

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – Pit Stop (S3E10)

 

Captain's Log: 27th of Vorgeheim, 2513.

I don't know where Harbull and Petra are so I'm going to have to ask you to write this entry down for me... you already are? We're starting now? Right, thank you The One.

After Frau Kenner!

Our morale was boosted by the chance to not only wi…

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – Ball, Ball, Ball... Snotball! (S3E08 & 09)

Captain's Log: 25th of Vorgeheim, 2513.

I cannot completely forget what I saw in Castle Wittgenstein. Couldn't rest properly for nearly the entire night in the Templar's Arms. As soon as I got a wink of sleep the screaming started downstairs. At about five o' clock in the morning, mind you. T…

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – Too Close for Comfort (S3E07)

Captain's Log, 23rd of Vorgeheim, 2513.

Seventy two gold crowns are in my possession. Haven't had so much money since... Bogenhafen, perhaps? I would pay much more than that to forget what I was subjected to yesterday. Ah, it's all for Sigmar in the end and perhaps the heavens will recognize …

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – The Graf's Champion (S3E06)

Captain's Log, 22nd of Vorgeheim, 2513.

I'm currently leaning against our loyal steed Dennis. There's a bit of a lull in the garden party so I'm taking the chance to record this. Harbull has decided to try to win the affections of Petra so The One will be writing this down instead. Dennis is …

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – You Are Feeling Sleepy (S3E05)

 

Captain's Log, 21st of Vorgeheim, 2513.

Our drinking had returned us to the morning warmth of the Templar's Arms. Al had brought his good friend Rallane Laffarel, the court musician, to join us in our usual quaffing. From my conversations along the Reik, I had been taught to believe tha…

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – Beer Festival (S3E04)

Captain's Log, 20th of Vorgeheim, 2513.

Elfin vintage is good for the tongue and throat, really gets you talking. Happily got through last night because of it. My head however, is an entirely different story. I know you, the fine person reading this journal, always expect a tale both true to …

The Enemy Within: Power Behind the Throne – Arrival in Middenheim (S3E03)

Captain's Log, 14-15 no, 17th maybe? Damn, my head has been really swimming recently... I'm aware of the irony. Vorgeheim, 2513.

Middenheim! A sprawling city, we could glimpse it all from the cliffs above. Several viaducts brought travelers to the entrances, while the magnificent temples, gui…

The Enemy Within: Carrion Up the Reik pt 2 (S3E02)

Illustration: Nosferatu Zodd by vee209

Captain's Log, 10th of Vorgeheim, 2513.

Without a boat we were sitting ducks. Well, even ducks could swim all the way there! All we could do at that moment is gaze at the stars and lament the vessel that had helped smite the warpstone conspiracy. I…

The Enemy Within: Carrion Up the Reik (S3E01)

Captain's Log, 29th of Summerzeit, 2513.

Well, shite.

I leave the Devil May Care for a year and a day and this happens.

The morning began with Werner, The One, Renate, Wolfgang and I arriving in Kemperbad to rendezvous with our ship's doctor, Harbull. It was good to see them all again, and …

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E17)

Music and Musings, 28th of Summerzeit, 2512. 

Today has contained both great tragedies and yet spectacular new friends and opportunities! I ruminated in my chamber on how to refine my attempts at the beautiful Tilean melody "Il Bruciore Della Passione". It is a favourite of mine, albeit the chor…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E15)

Captain's Log, 27th of Summerzeit I think, 2512.

The time for the arranged dinner with the Wittgensteins drew near. Preparations had to be made. Suits of plate armour? On the ship. Perfume? On the ship. Fancy clothes? Never even touched a fine pair of socks, let alone a whole suit. The best we co…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E14)

Captain's Log, 26th of Summerzeit, 2512.

I was doing my usual yawning and stretching in the ray of morning sunshine that had crept into the Shooting Star Inn. Although I was and still am regrettably in Wittgendorf, things seemed a, well, let's say a good shade of optimistic. The weather was fine,…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E13)

Captain's Log, 25th of Summerzeit, 2512.

Wittgendorf is a miserable place. The first step off our vessel brought us into a ferocious wave of wretched and needy beggars, tugging and pawing for whatever food and coin you might have. I handed one a silver shilling and the pack turned their hungr…

Mutant: Year Zero. // transmission 003 //

This was the session where the stopper got pulled out of the mutant powers bottle. SPOILERS for the MY0 metaplot. 

A new PC: Starbuck the Stalker. A shy loner who keeps himself to himself in his 2nd/3rd floor air duct, which he hops up and down to with his frog legs. He's got Extreme Reflexe…

Mutant: Year Zero. transmission 002

Sessions 3 and 4. 

 

A group of wanderers came to the Ark. They said they came from over the mountains to the east. Their leader is a bald, bright-eyed woman called Veronica. They seem to want to settle down, and have made a camp of their own near the Ark. They have no mutations. 

Di…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E12)

 

Captain's Log, 24th of Summerzeit, 2512.

I woke up early on the 1st of Summerzeit. I was going to rest for another hour, Unterbaum seemed like the safest place in the whole Empire at that moment, but I heard the families singing outside. I know what you are thinking right now: "Happy f…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E11)

 

Captain's Log: 33rd, the last day of Sigmarzeit, 2512.

We got what we needed from the Devil May Care's armoury before setting off for the Devil's Bowl. I specifically wanted to retrieve two boarding axes. Those things were a blessing even outside of naval work: well balanced, light eno…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E9&10)

(originally posted 12 Jan 2019)

Captain's Log: 26th Sigmarzeit, Mannslieb can be seen in all its glory, 2512.

This whole rooting out Chaos cultists and frequently seeing horrors thing has been getting to me. I'm starting to feel better suited to killing gruesome abominations than sailing my ow…
