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…

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…
