Meanwhile I will write another fluff story about my company of saints and sinners ...

This Maloch guy has send for him...Kurt wasn't sure what he wanted from him. He usually had a bad feeling if one of those sigmarites wanted something of him he just has seen to many burnt innocent. But this guy was somehow different...he spoke to the Brigands if they were not the scum everybody sees in them. Hmm for sure there were a couple of the ruffian kind who he left in the cells to rot. One look and he seemed sure and confident in his decisions. But instead of torture or the loud screaming some other priest used to root out the evil against the empire he was very silent ...more like a beacon of courage in combat. And he always wore his golden mask...he was encased in a very heavy platemail shining like the sun.

He entered the tent he was escorted by two of those shiny knights of the Inquisitor also attending were his to wizards in their flowing white robes and Luitpold his Novice Priest. He stood up and greeted him in his somehow soft melodic voice that could change from satin to steel in the matter of a single word. "welcome Kurt...I guess you would like to know why I invited you here. I feel that you ask yourself why I trust you...you and all the other kind of bandits and brigands...how I rely on you in battle?

Kurt you must know why someone acts how he acts a Brigand is not a Brigand by choice in the most cases. Often he just had bad luck, a famine, some soldiers who deserted after a battle was lost and fled the rage of the victors, only the gods know what. But I have a gift...I can feel the taint upon persons. See in their souls" saying this he fixed kurt with his blue eyes....that looked like two chips of ice. "See Kurt no one is by nature save from corruption. In my opinion many of those Brigands like yourself have more sense of honor and faith than many nobles in the empire...even more than some priest in the church of Sigmar. Look at Luitpold here" he pointed his armoured finger towards the priest. "He calls himself a defender of the faith but he is corrupted, his soul gone dark by the seductions of the powers of Chaos." The eyes of the priest were wide in fear as he heard those words. Two Knights grabbed him and hold him tight while the Inquisitor walked over to him. He ripped open the tunic of Luitpold and below the layers of cloth there was the mark of one of the great powers of Chaos...Mutation..a small face was growing on the stomach of the Priest. Maloch was shaking his head...his voice full of sorrow "Luitpold....my combat brother you have slayed many a beast in the campaigns we fougth together. Why did it come to this." The older priest didn't speak a word while Maloch took his great Warhammer and smashed the head of his companion. "As I tell you Kurt I can feel the taint so there is no reason to distrust you...because in you...I don't feel no taint!" While Kurt was lead out of the tent he thought what odd crystal ball it was one of the magi was carrying.

Nice stuff, Fandir!

Has any of you guys got a presence in German warhammer-forums? If you do, we could probably need some advertising there. PowderMonkey mentioned something like that. I would have a look around, but it is always more trust-inspiring to see a known face (or nick).

Good idea. Looking at the map, places requiring a name are:

1. The city northeast of Leopold's cloister
2. A skaven lair northeast of Untergard (heck, they are camping right at my front door!)

Then, there are features that do not appear on the map specifically, or do not ask for a name, but which I feel we should name nonetheless:

3. The bridge at Untergard - somehow I'm tired of calling it the "bridge over the Drelb"
4. The route through the forest that leads from Untergard, between the Skaven lair and the hills, to Markstammfelden
5. The road leading from Leopold's cloister to the inn and further south
6. The piece of land between the two arms of the Drelb where the city (s.a., pt. 1.) is located

Gentlemen, the poll is open  :wink: Any more ideas of things that should be named?

My suggestions:
1. Perhaps it already does have a name? In my NC campaign book, a city named "Priestlicheim" is mentioned (p. 11). Wissenlander, could you tell us what the name is in English?
2. The Milling Mass Caverns
3. St. Wilhelms Bridge (referring to the Grand Theogonist who killed Vlad von Carstein in the battle of Altdorf)
4. Dawn Pathway (nickname from the former garrison at Untergard, since in better times, the soldiers would look east in the morning to see when the carriage with the mail from home would arrive).
5. Tough one. Either a "noble" name from the cloister, or a dirty nickname from the inn. "Hangman's Road" it would be named by the bandits, I guess. How about "The Saint's Road"? Nicknamed such by the common people since the priests of the cloister use it for pilgrimage and processions.
6. Millet Headland - little joke on the expense of the city there, referring to the fact that Leopold's cloister gets much better food, whereas they have to take the lesser stuff.

I already made some advertisement on gw-fanworld two guys said they will join but since that no word has reached me...I will give some thought to the names...but I wouldn't call it "saints road" but "road of hope".

There's no translation or name for the town north east of Leopold's.  I'd say go with Priestlicheim since it's already got some sort of name.

I'm all for it, Gromghor. Welcome here.

Could you post a link to the respective section in Da Warpath (I seem to have trouble with registring currently)? That would make it easier, otherwise you'd have to post your whole stuff here again. I'll read what you're up to, and then come up with suggestions on the fluff exchange.

Ok, here's some Info from da Orks im Räuberthal...  :wink:

• The name of the Warboss in charge in the Räuberthal is Gromghor Stumpfspalta, a Black Orc Warboss on a Wyvern called Vielfraß.

• The Chaos Stunties have agreed to ally with us Orcs. They will provide Warmachines and Combat Engineers in Exchange for slaves and shiny stuff. You might report some action of Chaos Dwarves and their Combat Engineers. Like seeing their Machines or aiding our troops.

Garazad da Mitey leads the Orc forces to the south of the Räuberthal, perhaps mention his scouts meeting your forces furthur upstream?

So how's that for a start?

Grossinquisitor Maloch will be Fighting at the Leopolds Kloster and the Inn down the road he rallies all....yes you could say human scum and he especially tries to attack and liberate the slave pens of the Orks and Chaos Dwarves. Often attacking with only a small handfull of elite troops like knights and state troops but with large bands of militias and priests.

More fluff will follow soon - that is, as soon as I find some time to type it.

We should try to establish frequent fluff-cooperation anyway, and not just with the orks. I've made a start here:

http://z3.invisionfree.com/Orc__Goblin_Warpath/index.php?showtopic=18354&st=0&#entry1261832

and here:

http://www.roundtable-bretonnia.org/index.php?option=com_joomlaboard&Itemid=87&func=view&catid=20&id=35601#35601

Other races open for fluff cooperation include, at the current point, Wood Elves, High Elves, Dwarfs, Lizardmen, and Ogres.
Just a word of warning: Should any of you have any presence in forums of the evil races, ponder your words very carefully. It will be best to stay clear of the whole NC-business there. The last thing we want is being accused to form alliances with them. It would be most inappropriate, and anger our bretonian allies for good reason.

Can't make it, I'm afraid. I find it a bit awkward that the first battle will be the probably most decisive one in the area. I just hope the guys do well. Comp be damned, take a Waraltar or a gunline if you have to.  :ph34r:

Also, be sure to the additional information on the GW website if you haven't done so yet. When will they notice that Middenstag castle is not on the map?

Oss, could you please provide some information on your army so that I can post it in cooperating forums? Anything you would like to have mentioned would be helpfull.

Campaign is up and running. Empire is doing better in the Räuberthal than in the overall scores currently, but not good. Brets are leading overall, but in the Räuberthal - High Elves (!), with a result of 13.0 (!), by far the best value.

Hope this sorts itself out. I have a suspicious mind.

@ Gneisenau:

Sorry for Lateness (If there is such a word). My army is the Averländer Expeditionskorps led by Hartmann von Höllenthal, who is a rather young noble, served in the Pistoliers Corps during SoC, and is fighting for Hellstrom's 4th to get experience as a commander and strengthen his position within Averland. His army is mainly Infantry based.

Didn't get to play yet, hopefully this WE...
Quoted From Wyzer1: "Actually I believe most of the game is fairly well balanced, and I applaud GW for this awesome game. Thats why we pay $300++ for their models. That and we all have mental issues."

No problem  :-) I just wanted to remind you before the campaign moves on with your battlesite, Trenkenkraag. Quite interesting fact - the orcs over at Da Warpath are paying big attention to that stone circle. I guess you'll meet some old acquaintances from the Black Fire Pass there.

Hail and well met, Graf Gaspard de Valois - be most welcome!

Fandir will be gratefull for getting support at the temple. Any help from our allies is appreciated, but currently, our most urgent concern is the battle of Untergard - due to the fact that the Räuberthal is the middle area of the campaign, and St. Wilhelms Bridge is the best access from the west.

is there a good german wh-forum at all? All I have seen i terrible overcrowded

...and have a terrible layout. Good ones? There aren't. Or maybe I'm just spoiled. But I have to wonder where all the empire players are.

Edit:
Congratulations of the day go to our bretonian friend here, who is currently ranking 5th in the overall score. If you check his profile, you will see that his enemies - who have all confirmed the results - have real armynames.

Whereas the current leader of the list has achieved a massacre against the army "mike" of the general "mike", against the army "jake" of the general "jake"... you get the idea. Somebody should tell the kids that this is not about how many mates you get to register and confirm faked battles.

Well brothers Untergard is liberated of the evil that has nested in it for times too long. So now Generalleutnant Friedrich Freiherr von Schwarzenborn will stay and defend the Village resupplying it and build up a defense force I think ...also around the leopoldskloster the things seem in a good mood everything is going fine in the räuberthal ...sons of sigmar I applaud your courage and your will to defend the soil of the empire all the suffering and your sacrifices will be worth the victory we will achieve.

That's a weight from my heart - even though a guy named "von Elp" seems to be in charge according to GW :wink:. Ah, no matter.

Since the Brets focus so ardently on the cloister, I've just posted your fluff over there at the round table, Fandir. You could get plenty of mentions in fluff reports; there are very busy people over there.

The same goes for you Oss, only with the orcs at Trenkenkraag.

Thanks to you gneisenau I think we will keep the Räuberthal safe and sure if you need any help at untergard I will be delighted to send some knights because the rubble of volunteers seem to be up to the fight of the monstrosities of the eternal night.
