Slaves of Destiny- the Grand finale

It’s been a long time getting it’s write up, but our playtest sessions have finally ended!
We’ve been playing through the adventure in the back of the Skaven sourcebook ‘Children of the Horned Rat’ with two different groups- one set of Skaven spys, and one set of morally dubious humans.

Obviously, we can’t reveal the climax of the adventure- that would spoil things- but needless to say, there were some dark deals struck, several deaths and an awful lot of explaining the resulting mess to superiors. Just like any session of WFRP really.

So, many thanks to our cast of anti heroes:

Human investigators:
Che Webster- (Maximillian ‘metaphor king’) For services to miscommunication
Owen Barnes- (Bigby Badgerbane) “to be honest, it’s all !£*&£$!*”
Rowland Cox- (Hermann the messenger) For dice nav ™
Rob Broom- (Wolfheart Vogel) For his first game session!
Darron Bowley- (Axelbrand ‘the shoveller’ Scherer) Silent but deadly

Skaven pack

Mal Green- (Throlk) “The trees are screaming and the moons on fire!”
Chris Lucas- (Ritchet) for leading the Skaven pack…fatly.
Dave Allen- (Meffitt Ikk) for his special war face
Ed Morris- (Skerrit Slee) for doing his Skaven duty and escaping

So, here’s the quote book- infer what you will!

Maximillian: “Did your mother ever dally with Orcs?”

Maximillian - “What kind of beastmen are they?”
Wolfheart- “I don’t know, but they’re dead- that’s the best kind of beastman in my books”

Bigby- “I think we should drink just enough to forget why we’re here but not enough that we’re incapable of fighting”

Maximillian- “I’m not one to hide from a fight…but why does it have to be us who does the fighting?”

Axelbrand- “Well, my conscience is clear- I mean, what have these villagers ever done for us?
Maximillian- “Apart from put a roof over our heads?”
Wolfgang- “They’ve welcomed us to their community”
Hermann- “and treated us like heroes”
Maximillian- “fed us, given us ale…”
Bigby- “they gave me pie”
GM- “wow, that Halfling Loyalty isn’t easily bought”
