    Born to a large family Ulrich was one of the lucky ones, his parents died when he was still young and his four older siblings had to step up to help him and his younger sister.
    His eldest brother took to the profitable business of rat-catching and brought his middle sister with him for the smaller spaces that might hold a nest, and his middle brother was distraught at the death of his father while on a bounty and dedicated himself to Sigmar completely.

    However the true master of the family became his eldest sister, when a criminal killed the local nobles son and kidnapped his daughter it had been Ulrich's father that had brought him down, in honour of this (and in no small part due to the beauty of the girl), the noble took Ulrich's eldest sister as his newest wife making her a noble.

    With her father's death and her mother dying in child birth of her youngest sister she began to take an active interest in her family, arranging for Ulrich to gain access to a university education, and placing the youngest in a unit protecting the region. Ideally she would like her family to have a wizard in it to allow for greater power in the region, and has similar plans for the rest of her family.

    Ulrich did reasonable at university but was not an overly pleasant person drinking instead of talking, but also travelling often to get a handle on the empire, and it is on one of these reviewing trips that he is on now to benefit his education.

    Born to a large family Ulrich was one of the lucky ones, his parents died when he was still young and his four older siblings had to step up to help him and his younger sister.
    His eldest brother took to the profitable business of rat-catching and brought his middle sister with him for the smaller spaces that might hold a nest, and his middle brother was distraught at the death of his father while on a bounty and dedicated himself to Sigmar completely.

    However the true master of the family became his eldest sister, when a criminal killed the local nobles son and kidnapped his daughter it had been Ulrich's father that had brought him down, in honour of this (and in no small part due to the beauty of the girl), the noble took Ulrich's eldest sister as his newest wife making her a noble.

    With her father's death and her mother dying in child birth of her youngest sister she began to take an active interest in her family, arranging for Ulrich to gain access to a university education, and placing the youngest in a unit protecting the region. Ideally she would like her family to have a wizard in it to allow for greater power in the region, and has similar plans for the rest of her family.

    Ulrich did reasonable at university but was not an overly pleasant person drinking instead of talking, but also travelling often to get a handle on the empire, and it is on one of these reviewing trips that he is on now to benefit his education.



    Background Expanded:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Ulrich was born with little money, in a town where that matters a great deal. His parents died while he was still fairly little, something he feels little grief for as he hardly remembers them and has always felt a bit abandoned. It orphaned the whole lot of them, and they ended up in a hovel under the care of his oldest brother. That brother, along with one sister, ran a rat-catching business which kept a little bit of coin and barter coming in.

    However it was Ulrich's oldest sister Ylise, the slender boheme, who turned their fortunes around. She was often lost in thought or would disappear for a day or two, seldom arguing with her siblings but when she did speak up they all listened.

    Without telling any of them, she went one day to court.

    She wore a dress Ulrich had never seen, a good burgher's gown, and a shawl she had spent months making herself. Her hair was loose but for a Strigany headscarf. She looked radiant and he wondered where she was going. He would not see her for five days.

    When he did, she had a retainer.

    She had gone to court and presented herself as the daughter of their late father, who had once rendered a service to the baron. Years ago, the story was told to Ulrich, their father had tracked down a gang of highwaymen who had kidnapped the baron's daughter. Father beat these bandits and returned the girl with no ransom paid, her virginity intact (so they say). Father had received some small accolades from the baron, more pomp than substance, and life had gone on.

    By presenting herself as the orphan of such a hero, Ylise could have expected at best a sum of some crowns, a bit of charity to ease the baron's conscience. But the good Baron took one look at Ylise in her Bohemian garb and loose hair and fell in love.

    He made the unusual choice to propose marriage to her.

    All of this was something of a faerie tale (pardon the expression) come true to the local gossips, but it seemed hard to believe to Ulrich's analytical mind. There had always been something about Ylise that he couldn't understand, something unnerving. His siblings accepted the good news readily enough, however, and he went with it.

    Ylise capitalized on her new husband's good graces to set up her rat-catcher siblings with a much more respectable business. Ulrich was given the chance to go to university, thank Sigmar, and a younger brother she got enlisted in a respected infantry unit, though he had originally asked her if he could become a Templar instead.

    As Ulrich began his studies, he took an especial interest in (legal) knowledge about magic, as he had a hunch. The more he studied the more certain he became.

    Ylise had always been different, but the number of unusual twists of luck in her favor kept increasing. It was as if she could charm people, predict events and always get her way. Those who disliked her had a habit of bad accidents or faraway assignments, too.

    Most of all, she seemed allergic to Sigmarite services, so much so that her absence embarrassed her husband on occasion. But she was so devout in her service to Rhya and Shallya, giving alms and working side-by-side with the clergy in the hospices, that she was beloved by the people.

    Ulrich is quite certain that his oldest sister is a witch. She has encouraged him in his own desire to pursue magic. He suspects that she doesn't understand that college wizards, like templars, are required to destroy witches where they find them.

    But he does not want this witch destroyed. He loves his sister, he owes everything to her... and if she was found out as a witch, his entire family would be ruined.

    Backstory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Born a soldier's brat to a camp follower and a sergeant in the Army of Wissenland, Eugen grew up surrounded by soldiers and the vultures who lived off the army's leftovers. Life wasn't easy for him and his mother, since the part of his father's pay he didn't spend on alcohol was barely enough to make ends meet. His mother, who had always been of sickly disposition, struggled to make some extra coin by cooking and sewing for her husband's comrades.
    Eugen learned to use sword and crossbow from his father.

    At first, of course, it had been very exciting for the young boy to watch his father's army fight from a safe distance, but the romantic glory of war was soon diminished by the harsh truth of life, at the latest when his father lost his right arm and was from then on condemned to join the camp followers in doing odd jobs for the soldiers.

    As soon as he was 15, Eugen left home with his parent's blessings, who were all to happy they didn't have another mouth to feed, and joined up with a regiment of mercenaries.
    His fathers example discouraged him from joining up with a regular regiment - he had seen mercenaries before, and compared to the simple soldier in the Wissenland army, those men seemed to lead comfortable and easygoing lives.

    The regiment's leader soon realized the boy's talent with crossbows, and proceeded to train him as a sharpshooter.

    In the following 13 years, Eugen Waibel has seen a lot of fighting, mostly internal struggles between the Empire's nobility.

    With 6'0, Eugen is a quite tall man with a medium build, leaning towards being muscular. He wears his ash blond hair relatively short.
    Eugen does put some emphasis on appearing as sophisticated as possible, therefore he sports a meticulously waxed mustache in the style of reikländer officers and almost always wears an old, weathered feathered hat he had bought in a town market a few years ago. He has also gotten used to wearing a white sash over his chainmail and leather jack, a tradition back at his old regiment, where this sash showed his origin as a Wissenländer.
    His shield still sports the emblem of the mercenary regiment he used to belong to, but since the regiment has been disbanded, there probably won't be anyone to call him out on that.

    The concept of faith has fascinated Karina since she was a little girl. That there were gods was self-evident; that they watched over and cared for their people was only natural, and it followed that they should be well served, the better for them to protect the Empire. Born the only daughter of a poor cattle farmer in the heart of the Reikland, she had little opportunity for much expression of this desire beyond attending services performed by Brother Waldemar, the local priest of Sigmar. So attend them she did, far more often than even her parents (pious folk on their own merits), and she would often stay longer to help the old man in his duties. In return, he gladly taught her history and reading, couching the lessons in the guise of religious instruction and tales. The priest told her of Sigmar’s great victory at Black Fire Pass, of the long alliance with the dwarfs, of Emperors both base and noble…and when he spoke to her of the legendary Sisters of Sigmar, of how their convent was miraculously untouched when the comet smote the wicked city of Mordheim and how they were lost one by one on their missions of mercy in the ruins, he saw the fire in her eyes, and knew he had found her calling.

    Her parents were more than willing for Karina to enter the faith, and for years after she helped the old priest deliver sermons, heal the sick, and on one notable occasion roust a band of unruly drunks from the village. In this, she was content, but Waldemar saw a different path for his young charge. The Sisters, he told her, had done all she had and more. Like the warrior priests they shared a god with, they had set forth to defend the weak and strike down those who would harm them. It was this task that Sigmar had set before her, to serve as an example of courage and faith. And so Karina smiled, and knelt, and received the old man’s blessing before she went out into the world. For five years she has wandered the roads and byways of Sigmar’s great Empire, seeking out the minions of darkness and protecting the helpless. Now her travels bring her to Norden, at a time when, perhaps, the people need the fire of faith more than ever…

    Axelbrand, the son of a Cook and a Farmer respectively, was born in the town of Norden. Spending most of his childhood on his family's farm his days were full of toil and boredom, preferring to spend most of his time in the kitchen rather than out on the fields breaking his back.

    When he finally came of age Axel volunteered to join Norden's militia finally finding something more exciting to do than tilling earth or standing over stew pots, he relished the chance to learn how to defend his family and his town.

    Being assigned as a archer as most halfings are he picked using a bow fairly quickly, enjoying the art of properly maintaining a bow and the discipline required to wield it Axel has served in the militia for over 10 years.

By the age of 22 she became frustrated with staying on her family lands, small as they were, and decided to leave to explore the Empire and beyond. Stealing away just a few items, she selfishly left to pursue her wanderlust.

    Just caught up on the thread so far. Really great RP from all involved, and a hell of a great hook/beginning Teucros.
    I just published my first novella, Lúnasa Days, a modern fantasy with a subtle, uncertain magic.

    You can grab it on Kindle or paperback.

    Why, thank you Poet !

    PbPs can be weird when it comes to timing-I had to judge when the players' time to look for things and potentially flee had passed. I didn't even know whther you would end up meeting the man at this point. All i can say is that the players are great .

    Oh, and in other news,I believe I will give you slightly more XP than normal, the PbP medium being slow enough as it is. Ι trust you won't mind.

    You need a map of Norden, i know..,problem is, i suck at cartography. I've been considering an alternative. Hopefully tomorrow I will have a little something ready to go .

    I love them! What game or program did you use to make them?

    I might want to crib this idea for Virgins to the Night...

    I'm posting this with Teucros' permission. If any of you are interested in playing, please submit a character!

    Wreck of the Innocent Daughter

    A grim & perilous adventure

    for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, 2nd Edition

    The Emperor sent three ships to visit the Great Elves in Ulthuan and to explore Lustria across the sea.

    One of the ships never made it...

    You and your comrades wash up on an unknown shore. This unique Warhammer game will take place far from the Empire with its Witch Hunters and its Cults, in a strange land that has not been touched by Chaos. Or so they say~

    Style: Pulp adventure, strong roleplay + exploration.

    If you can post once a day (or more) and commit to long term play, please submit a character for Wreck of the Innocent Daughter.
    I just published my first novella, Lúnasa Days, a modern fantasy with a subtle, uncertain magic.

    I moved things forward a bit :). Karina and Gabrielle I didn't update your side of affairs-since you hadn't declared the intentions yet, i didn't want to presume. I hope you won't mind.

    I don't mind! I tend to let a couple of posts go by so people can get their opinions in most of the time :D I'll respond to Karina soon, then probably trudge to the castle :P

    Thanks, Boss. I'm heading to the Cathedral anyway, but the thought is appreciated.
