Barony of the Damned- 1st playtest report!

The first playtest session of ‘Barony of the Damned: An Adventure in Mousillon’ was played last night- and a fine time had by all!

what's playtest?

Our intrepid victims, ah…volunteers were:

Ed Morris- Urrel Two-Axe, a Dwarf slayer in Bretonnia to hunt down some of the bizarre creatures said to lurk in that Kingdom

Mal Green- Otto Embarr, Pyromancer of the Bright Order, travelling at the request of his Magical Order…

Chris Lucas- Kera of Ostermark. An uprooted noble woman searching for her lost love, Sir Pierre the Intrepid.

Darren Bowley, Gorge von Ostwald- ‘The Butcher of Middenheim’ bounty hunter and tracker extraordinaire.

Owen Barnes- Jurgen Heim, Priest of Sigmar committed to spreading the word of Sigmar to the ignorant and inbred of Bretonnia.

“They say five strangers came by the Golden Spur the other night- aye, and a right odd lot they were! I hear they spread tales of revolution an’ change to the folk they found in that fair tavern…aye, talking about some Sigmar God or something, and telling folk how they could prosper in the Empire- rise above their birth and all that! Pah, what folly! The Dwarf thing even punched someone out- just fer askin’ him why he had all that blue scribbling on ‘im

Anyhow, the Duke’s men soon came for ‘em- an’ took ‘em off to the Castle Lyonesse.” –Old Groubert, Lyonesse peasant

“Yes, the Duke did hold conference with the mercenaries. I don’t know what they discussed- he cleared the Great Hall for privacy. I did speak with the Orange clad Troubadour the Lady Ostermark kept about for amusement though. I must say, they didn’t seem the type to spring a convicted criminal from the Dukes Dungeons, but that just goes to show these Empire folk can’t be trusted” – Seneschal Doubert

“The Priest promised me if I were to pray to Sigmar, help would come” –Guy, peasant revolutionary

“The strangers travelled to the Cordon Sanitare as instructed my Lord. They handed the criminal Guy to my care and proceeded into the cursed Duchy without a care in the world. One would think they knew nothing of what lays within Mousillon… They learnt nothing of use to their mission from the peasant- who would be back here in the Castle my Lord- but the things of the borderlands caught and ate him” –Sir Besson
