Cannonofdoom:
Heinrich Kanone des Untergangs
Age: 31 (my actual age)
Brown hair and eyes, short cropped beard
5'10" 195 lbs (heroic scale!)
Title: Knight of the Order of the Panther, Middenheim Chapter

Heinrich spent many years in Altdorf, the city of his birth, as a thiefcatcher before turning to the more lucrative vocation of bounty hunting. Now he travels the Empire tracking down criminals that have fled from their misdeeds, bringing Aldorf style justice to the podunk towns of the far flung reaches of the Empire. He recently tracked a heretic accused of murdering a man in Frederheim to Bogenhafen, but lost his trail on the way before meeting up with his current companions in a tiny town with no name worth remembering. He has decided to seek work in Bogenhafen to make up the funds lost in his recent failure. The failure doesn't bother him too much, because Heinrich has failed to find a bounty before, only to run into the fiend at a later date by chance.

Heinrich is dressed in simple traveling clothes: Leather breeches and sturdy boots, a simple, dark green tunic worn over a padded vest and chain shirt (so they're not visible). He wears a quiver of arrows at his left hip, with a sturdy half moon axe hanging from a loop on his belt on his right hip. The hilt of a knife peeks out of the top of his left boot. His bow is unstrung when in town, and he carries it like a walking stick, with extra strings in a small belt pouch. He carries a rucksack on his back, the single strap running diagonally across his chest. He has short dark hair and beard, which both get unruly and wild when he lets them grow long. Lines at the corner of his eyes are more from laughter than from age, though he's getting a little past his prime, and gray strands have begun to salt his hair. Quick with a joke, and very forgiving of personal slights, he nevertheless takes the law very seriously. He got into bounty hunting for the coin, and will take just about any job if the price is right but his underlying desire is to do the right thing. Heinrich truly believes (perhaps naively) that he is on the side of justice and the good of the people.

Somehow, his recent adventures in Bogenhafen have put him off bounty hunting, and he has decided to concentrate more on his archery. Perhaps it was the ill-timed miss of the crocodile demon during the desperate struggle in the warehouse that has driven him to devote himself more thoroughly to the craft. In any case, Heinrich has begun to seek archery tournaments to match his skills against others, and decided to try his hand at perhaps mastering the longbow. He still maintains his bounty hunting skills, and surely if he needs the coin he will take a few bounties here and there.

After his experiences in Middenheim Heinrich is confident in his abilities as a marksman. He has won a couple tournaments and even shot a flying elf out of the sky at range. His fights against evil mages has put the thought of witch hunting into him. He is no devotee of Sigmar by any means, but witches are unjust and unholy. He is sure Verena hates witches too. We found a witch! May we burn her?

Mortus Basanduine - Human female- 17   XP 100
Title: Knight of the Order of the Panther, Middenheim Chapter

Until I buy the model and paint it up

Academic - Wizard, level two, Career exits: Wizard, level three

Mortus is a bubbly talkitive young woman.   She has striking narrow features, a boney face and long boney fingers.   She is not what you would call classically pretty but her features are striking and when she laughs she has a very engaging and merry smile.   She is dressed in a wool tunic, trousers and knee high boots.   Her clothes are faded and worn, but neatly kept and patched in places.
Her father was a merchant from Nordland.   Not a very wealthy merchant but he got by, running a route from Nordland to Aldorf.   His wagon train was attacked by bandits a few years before and destroyed.   Mortus managed to escape the slaughter, though she would not be drawn on how, with a small amount of gold and the clothes on her back.   She made her way to the nearest settlement and stayed their for a while.   After a year or so she decided to try her hand at being a merchant herself.   She is making her way to Bogenhafen to go to the fair to try and find some deals that she will be able to sell further north.
Mortus is normally happy to talk on most subjects but, despite relating her story one night around the camp fire, she is very close lipped around the subject of her family and her past.   She has a small leather bag that she keeps on her person all the time.

Her experiences in Bogenhafen seem to have effected Mortus a lot.   While she is still as bubby as before the periods that she will spend alone increased after her adventures and often she would be seen praying silently.   She seemed to make no effort to seek out a university with her new found wealth but rather seemed driven by something else.   She also seemed to harden.

Fandir Nightshade:
[Count]Klaus Metzger[von Sternberg]
Age: 28
Ash blonde hair and pale blue eyes
5,5" around 150 pounds
Title: Knight of the Order of the Panther, Middenheim Chapter








Appearance:
Klaus has a very average face, a bit crooked teeth. The only thing above average on him are his crystal blue eyes that are awake at almost all times and sparkle with intelligence. The fingers on both his hands are stiff due to some mishap in the past therefore his dexterity with them isn´t what it once was. His back is scarred by lashes he received because he tried to act heroic.....well and was stupid about it.


--- Quote ---"Klaus, last night I did some research at the main university archive, about your father! I think I found what you were looking for. I was looking at records of battles at the Blackfire Pass, like you suggested. Twenty-five years ago - in 2487 - there was an orc invasion at the pass. Most of the Averland nobility were called to fight there. They defeated the orcs, but a there were a lot of casualties. Now, one of them was Count Karl von Sternberg... according to the records, he died without issue and the title was unclaimed. The estate reverted to the Elector Countess. I think Count von Sternberg was your father! The dates are right, it all makes sense. Does it sound right to you? I have all the evidence at my apartment, and I can show you after your party. So, you really are a count after all! I'm going to have to start bowing and calling you my lord!" Max says this last thing jokingly, but Klaus can tell he really means it.

“Rich as an Averlander…” he could remember the sound of  the voice, a deep booming voice,  of the Merchant speaking to his father like it was only yesterday. He will be rich as an Averlander when he would sell all the wool they had gathered for him on the mar-ketplace of Wurtbad. This phrase, these few words changed his fate. Born in Stirland Klaus was raised in poverty, his parents peasants that tended to the flock of sheep of the local Baron and his fields of turnips.  He dreamt to become an Averlander, no more starving during a bad harvest, no freezing and sleeping in one room with the sheep and pigs during the winters.

 So one day he packed his few belongings and left his village and his family to become an Averlander, it wasn´t so far away he told himself and if they are all rich he wanted to become one of them. Reaching the Averland he found out, that the people there were not richer than the people in Stirland. Only the nobility and some Merchants lead the life he dreamed of since he was a little boy…since that one day. The peasant too starved and died of a harsh winter and had to work all their life.

But that was not for him, he made up a story, that he was the bastard of some high born Averlander, only out for adventure living on the streets of the Empire because he chose to do so, and at some point in the future when his thirst for adventure was quenched he would return to his fathers fief and claim his heritage. He had told that story so often dur-ing his travels that by now he believes it himself. Klaus Metzger from Averland son of….ahh I won´t tell you fellows as I won´t ruin the noble name of my family. He always had a quick wit and was good with numbers, so he taught himself to read and write to make the story of the wandering noble more realistic. His small frame and lack of skills with arms meant he either had to become a peasant again to earn his living…or turn to less legal means to aqcuire his money.

He always disliked violence and his first years in the criminal underhives of Averheim filled him with terror. He saw people killed and their bodies thrown into the Aver, and the people who cut those throats being hanged by the city watch. It wasn´t his trade, he turned to gambling. His swift mind and quick fingers earned him a good living, with as much food as he wanted and drinks and women too. He found out very fast that the best place to earn the money were the poor. Their desperation and the hope for earning money to give them more freedom was easy to exploit. The rich usually were too smart to even try a gamble or the few stupid nobles that went to the taverns to gamble had enough influence and arrogance to seek revenge once they felt themselves cheated. Like one day after he won several games against a young fat noble, he had his fingers broken by his hired muscles. There was no proof that he had cheated it was just a whim of the young man, and his fingers remained a bit stiff since that day. The poor on the other hand are impotent.

Every once in a while Klaus feels a pang of guilt that he exploits the ones that are al-ready the most exploited but he drowns that guilt, either in drinks or in the stories he likes to tell, about his fight with some Greenskin, or how he accidantly bedded a female Ogre. It is hard world, and one day….one day he has to return to his heritage.

On the writing desk is a book of maps, open at a page showing an area of Talabecland called the Barren Hills. A circle has been drawn around what looks like a crater, situated in the fork of two streams that converge to form the River Narn. The Narn itself joins the River Stir, which flows into the Reik at Kemperbad.

Beside the map book is a volume of Sternschau's Astronomical Records, open at the following passage:

In the year of Sigmar 2302, on Hexenstag, the Witch Moon did shine green and smiling upon the world, and so as an omen of disaster. At this time the heavens burned with a great multitude of descending bodies, some of which did smite the earth and make it shudder.

On Geheimnistag, the Witch Moon did again turn its frightful face upon us. I, being prepared, did trace the path of a mighty shooting star as it crossed the sky like the Sun's Chariot: seeing it fall, I made such calculations as to determine the place of its landing. It struck mother earth most grievously, resting in the Barren Hills in Dread Talabecland, far up the Soulless River Narn.

Also on the desk is a letter:

My dear Etelka,

I hope you are well. The volumes I have sent with this letter should be sufficient to prove to you that the thing I have long sought exists, and can be reached. It has lain there some two hundred years already - I can only pray it lies there still. If it does, well, I scarcely need tell you the wonders we will be able to achieve once we possess it! Please, come to me in Nuln as soon as you can. I am preparing an expedition to the Barren Hills, and would value your presence. I have summoned my student Heidlemann as well, and I hope he arrives in time to join us.

I await your arrival with excitement.

Your friend,
H.S.
Magnus College,
Nuln.

My dear Johannes,

Enclosed with this letter is the scroll you require for your endeavor. I hope it will prove suitable, since I found it necessary to employ extraordinary measures to obtain it! I am sure that you do not need to be reminded, but I know you will not take offense if I say this: be certain of your preparations, especially the apparatus and the dedicatory gift. Any mistake or oversight will lead to disaster.

My thoughts are with you, and my prayers also. I wonder if the inner circle know what awaits them when the task is complete! Our old mentor at Magnus College would be delighted with both of us, I am sure. Please write to me with news of your success! I enclose my address, in case you have mislaid it. I shall be leaving home on an expedition of my own in three weeks time. I dare not say more now, but a wonderful prize lies ahead of me!

Yours in love and friendship,

Etelka Hergen.

Residing at Black Peaks Tower, near the town of Grissenwald in the Electorate of Nuln
