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 (S2E16)

Testimony of Captain Gertrude Grolsch regarding the Incident that occurred at Wittgendorf in Sommerzeit 2512.

Yes, I was on deck at the time we passed the Castle von Wittgenstein.  It was the middle of the night, a little after midnight. So the early hours of the 28th. We were sailing after dark …

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…

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…

(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…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E8)

(originally posted 3 Dec 2018) 

Captain's Log: Marktag, the 17th of Sigmarzeit, 2512.

We emerged from the forest, deciding to pursue the goblins to their foul lair. The Black Peaks were not too far by that point. Like grim spires they loomed over the land. Speaking of which, the land nearby h…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E7)

(originally posted 25 Nov 2018)

The Devil May Care was my keep for the several days spent in Kemperbad. Wealthy town, curiously situated high up on a cliff. Goods and gentlefolk were transported up towards it by using a system of lifts and winches. Very peculiar sight, seeing all those people asc…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E6)

(posted by the GM, not an in-character journal entry, on 6 Nov 2018) 

Session recap S2E6: The Devil May Care (or perhaps the Bloody Windfall) sails upriver from Castle Reikgard, five days of slow going against the current.

En route our crew encounter a nobles' party barge. The drunken aristo…

Captain's Log: Festag, 6th of Sigmarzeit, 2512.
Captain Johann Dasbuut speaking, Harbull is still wonderfully writing this log as our ship’s doctor and chronicler. I believe it is now early morning, so without further ado…

We stood inside…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E4)

(originally posted 25 Sep 2018) 

Captain's Log: Angest- no Festag... No, maybe? Sigmarzeit, 2512.

I know my uncle Gary would be very angry at my lack of time-keeping but that's not the most important thing right now. Werner is currently comforting the poor dwarf construction worker Thingrum …

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E3)

(originally posted 15 Sep 2018) 

Captain's Log: Festag, the 31st of Pflugzeit, 2512.

The journey to through the Weissbruck Canal was strangely uneventful. I had become increasingly wary of mutants and their ambushes and, although I hide it, I'm still not relieved of this fear. We paid our tol…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E2)

(originally posted 11 Sep 2018)

Captain's Log: Bezahltag, the 4th of Pflugzeit, 2512.

The Devil May Care (great name, Werner suggested it) has proven herself to be a sturdy and reliable riverboat. It is not the largest vessel a captain could ask for, it's only middling in terms of size com…

The Enemy Within: Death on the Reik (S2E1)

(originally posted 5 Sep 2018)

We were well rested, and the horrors of the previous night were mostly exorcised. The plan was to get the coinage we had won for ourselves elsewhere, and to rarely if ever speak of the incident again. I cannot speak for certain if Chaos will stop hounding our travel…

The Enemy Within: Shadows Over Bogenhafen (S1E5)

(originally posted 5 Aug 2018)

We stopped the cart to collect our buried loot as well as get a bit of respite from the day's hardship. Werner was off unearthing the dirt coffers, one thousand fine gold crowns for journey ahead. Wanda was sitting by the fire and absorbed in reading those strange w…
