The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: Altdorf Redux (S5E15)

 

Captain's Log:

That moment of peace had passed. Ah well, you've got to work towards it to make those moments so satisfying! It was time to go see Heinrich and all the Elector Counts. There's so many of them yet I cannot remember the names of more than, say, three! They were all seated a…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: The Battle of Wolfenburg (S5E14)

 

Captain's Log:

Speaking to Dr. Faustmann Faustmann and his companions gave us nearly the same details of the Imperial civil war. Heinrich Toddbringer was up ahead in Wolfenburg, just past what seemed like a legion on both sides of the conflict. It was decided that we would have to be qu…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: The Hammer (S5E12)

 

Captain's Log, by a mind clear as day!

I stepped off that horrific vessel with my crew and was faced with a large cavern. The moaning and cries of pain from the stalactites shocked me to my very soul! Dwarf prisoners of a foul Chaos magic were imprisoned within those hateful hanging spi…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: The Lair of the Dead (S5E11)

 

Dumpling and I took lanterns and descended those cold steps, after the brief respite we were given by the captain's predilection for spontaneous storytelling. These interruptions in our holy mission can be irritating at times but I believe that he needs them to persevere. To reaffirm his s…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: The Goblin Nest (S5E10)

The daylight outside trespassed through the portcullis behind us and lay there upon that murky den. We gave one last look to the outside world before readying our armaments and marching forth into the darkness. It's always a scary thing, losing that light, but it has to be done. Sentry rooms were al…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: The Cold Black Mountains (S5E9)

It was the 22nd of Ulriczeit when we continued walking those damned mountains. You lose your ability to stop and ponder after a while, walking this jagged shell of the earth. The legs become like great weights attached to your body but you learn to care less and less. I felt like I was dragged t…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: The Goblin Nest (S5E8)

Captain’s Log… is it still 2514? That won’t matter much soon, if Chaos wins…

The enormous bulk of that dormant monster is all the cover we need from the goblin patrols outside. Thing is snoring loud enough to wake up at least half of Altdorf! It only went to sleep eighty or so years ago w…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: River Trouble Redux (S5E7)

Captain's Log: Kaldezeit, 2514.

Ever since the halfling cook got on board the enthusiasm for meals has risen considerably. Harbull isn't around so I can say things like that now. It's nothing to do with whether you're a halfling or a lady, the old cooking. I reckon that Werner's the best chef out…

The Enemy Within - Empire in Flames: The Quest Begins (S5E5)

Captain's Log: 9th of Kaldezeit? 2514.

We got the Graf's body back to the Imperial, thankfully. The plan is to get Graf Boris a proper burial when the riots die down a little. That... might take some time. I could hear the violence outside and, sometimes, blood would drain into the cobblestones o…

The Enemy Within: Evil Wizardry (S5E3)

Captain's Log: 2514.

We had caught ourselves some rats but figuring out what to do with the Skaven proved to be the hardest part. On the one hand, they could assist us with the raid on the warpstone cave and brave whatever terrors lurked inside. On the other, they are abominations that ambush peo…

The Enemy Within: Grapes of Wrath (S5E01)

Captain's Log:

By the holy hammer, I've dreamed things no fine citizen of the Empire should suffer! Shifting shadows of a terrible realm that both tempts and dooms in equal measure. Constantly changing and forming new creatures and things more horrid than the last. I have been given glimpses of a…

The Enemy Within: Something Rotten in Kislev – Bolgasgrad (S4E7)

Captain's Log: 10th of Nachenheim, 2514.

I don't like where this is going. Nope, not one bit. They're even letting us into their lairs now and inviting us to church! Chaos is... do you think they heard that? I swear I could have heard someone walk by. Probably a "deader"? Let's hope so. I can't b…

The Enemy Within: Something Rotten in Kislev – Zombie Town (S4E5)

Captain's Log: 1st of Nachenheim, 2514.

We will let our good friend here risk damning himself with his explanation of this whole sorry affair soon. It is important to recall for whoever reads this the full details of this harrowing journey into the very den of the unliving menace. Yeah, the v…

The Enemy Within: Something Rotten in Kislev – Death Takes A Holiday (S4E4)

 

Captain's Log: 33rd of Vorgeheim, 2514.

Ah by the hammer... I can't win a staring contest with that green one on the ramparts!  He doesn't even have both his eyes, for crying out loud!  Can we have one of the braves guide it to the other side?  It's honestly getting on my nerves.  It's …

The Enemy Within: Something Rotten in Kislev – Stones (S4E3)

Captain's Log: 31st of Vorgeheim, 2514.

I think I'm alive.  Yeah.  Aching head is a pretty good reminder.  Not gone down that metal trapdoor yet.  Sun is shining bright enough for such a bloody day.  Then again, we lived so maybe things will get easier.  Maybe I should get u... aargh!  Sittin…

The Enemy Within: Something Rotten in Kislev – The Beast Child (S4E1)

 

Captain's Log: 30th of Vorgeheim, 2514.

Okay.

Well, let's think of the good news first... I found my old journal. Had to scavenge among the ruins of bloody Wittgenstein but I did eventually find it. The One recovered her blessed blade, a sign of Sigmar's favour. That was good too. Th…

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…
