    Default [WFRP] The Bloody Crown XII

    The Bloody Crown - Continued


    In that dread desert, beneath the moon’s pale gaze, dead men walk.

    They haunt the shifting dunes of the breathless, windless night, brandishing weapons of bronze in mocking challenge and bitter resentment of the life they no longer possess.

    And sometimes, in ghastly dry voices, like the rustling of sun-baked reeds, they whisper the one word they remember from life. The name of the one who cursed them to their existence of more than death but less than life.

    They whisper the name, Nagash.

    OOC




    Adelbert felt the goddess' anger as she answered his prayer.

    You ask this of me now? To undo what you yourself have done?

    The light of Verena lit up the darkness as blinding white shackles snapped around Hanna's wrists and ankles, making her stumble against a tree. Adelbert saw her eyes flash with unearthly colours as she looked back towards him - then, with one swift motion, she snapped the chains in two, the shackles disintegrating into many-coloured sparks. Adelbert felt a flood of guilt as she turned and ran into the woods, the scorn of his goddess stinging his soul.

    If you wish to bargain with daemons, do not turn to me when they betray you.

    The other PCs may be woken by the sound of this going on (player's choice), but by the time any waking character gets their bearings Hanna has already taken off into the woods with a fair head start.

    Sound asleep, Elsa felt the soft tug on the winds of magic from Adelbert's spell, but she ignored it at first. It was the sudden end of the spell, which felt like glass shattering, that made her awaken with a start. Adelbert was on his knees in prayer.

    "What was that?" she whispered hoarsely. "Did you just cast something?"

    The Verenan ignored her.

    "Adelbert!" Elsa said, louder. "Why the blazes are you praying?"

    Sieghard

    Even as tired as he was, Sieghard had been struggling to fall asleep. Too much had happened and there was too much risk of attack. It didn't take much commotion for him to wake and grab his sword.

    "What's going on?" he demanded of one of the men on watch. He cursed after the man had explained and took off after Hanna.

    If it's not too dark/overgrown for it, Sieghard will mount his horse. Otherwise he goes on foot.

    Adelbert did not reply, was possibly not even aware of Elsa's presence. His eyes were screwed shut and he was murmuring something in rapid and archaic Classical.

    Sieghard's horse had been startled awake by the commotion. There was no time to saddle it - loosing it from the tree where it had been tied, Sieghard jumped up onto its back, kicking it into a gallop in the direction Hanna had disappeared. Sleeping Thorns sat up and looked blearily around as thundering hooves passed them by, tearing off into the darkened woods.

    Sieghard crouched low over the horse's back, head down against the twigs that whipped at his face. Despite the darkness, he could make out movement through the trees up ahead - as his speeding mount gained ground, it resolved itself into Hanna, sprinting flat-out away from the camp. Urging the horse forward as fast as it could go, Sieghard ate up the distance between them. Twenty yards, sixteen, twelve...

    Hanna glanced back over her shoulder as she ran, and Sieghard saw an unwholesome light glitter in her eyes. The horse clearly saw it too - it came to a halt as if Sieghard had reined it in hard, giving a whinnying scream as its hooves skidded through dead leaves and tangled roots. Sieghard had to cling on for dear life as it reared and kicked - it was doing its level best to buck him off.

    This'll be a Ride test at -30 for Sieghard to stay on his horse (or, if you'd prefer, to dismount gracefully).

    Elsa and Adelbert were right, Sieghard realized. In his shock, he didn't notice his horse's terror until it was too late and landed hard on the ground.

    Probably going to fall on his butt regardless, but we'll go for the graceful dismount.

    (1d100)[44] vs 22

    And that's a fail. Had some more I was going to have Sieghard say, but with the failure, I'm not sure if "Hanna" is sticking around or going to try running again.

    Sieghard rolled to his feet, his sword still clutched tightly in his hand. Something wasn't right with his horse - it wasn't just spooked, its eyes were wild and rolling, foam flying from the corners of its mouth. Rearing back again, it tried to bring its hooves down on his head. Sieghard moved aside just in time - the horse's hooves came stamping down with bone-shattering force on the space where he'd just been.

    Sieghard runs after Hanna, using the trees to break up the path between him and the horse so it can't charge, and if possible to break line of sight between him and it as well. He does not want to get into charge range of Hanna, he's just trying to keep pace - if the horse is still coming after him, he'd rather deal with one at a time.

    Hooves flailed at Sieghard's head as he ducked out of the way, weaving through the trees in the direction he'd seen Hanna heading. The horse came thundering after him, yellow teeth snapping at his face. Falling back behind the cover of a tree-trunk, he watched as it charged off into the undergrowth, vanishing into the dark to the sound of snapping twigs and crazed whinnies.

    Through the trees behind him, Ludo emerged at a brisk run. He stopped for a moment to stare at the twigs and leaves in Sieghard's hair, and his noticeable lack of a horse - but there was no time to spare. Up ahead, Hanna was just visible, still sprinting hell for leather into the trees.

    Ludo bombed past Sieghard. His short legs would have given him the disadvantage on the straight - and he was tired to his very bones - but here in the forest he could juke round trees faster than either of the humans, and was able to catch up with Hanna and hurl himself at her in an attempt to knock her down.

    Ludo's headlong leap knocked Hanna's legs from under her, sending the two of them rolling between the tree-roots. Hanna was stronger, her reach longer, but Ludo clung to her like a limpet - by the time she'd managed to peel him off, Sieghard had already caught up. He slammed the butt of his sword against her forehead - she stumbled, but didn't fall.

    "Get off me!" she yelled, as Sieghard grabbed hold of her again. Kicking and biting, she managed to extricate herself from his grip, staggering a few yards back. She stood warily watching the two of them, tensed like a hare that had heard the hunters' horns - with both of them so close, turning to run would only show her back. Her face was scratched, her hair tangled with twigs and the litter of the forest floor from where Ludo had brought her down. She rubbed the rapidly-developing bruise on her temple where Sieghard had struck her. "What are you doing?"

    "Why were you running away?"
    "I just got up to take a leak, and the priest tried to put me in chains!" shouted Hanna, pointing an accusing finger back the way they'd come. "What was I supposed to think was happening?"

    "Schreiber thinks one of the daemons of Nath is possessing you," Sieghard said. "I didn't believe him, but I saw the daemon fire burning in your eyes. We're going to take you to the temple in Ravenskird. I'm not going to allow a daemon to turn you into its puppet."
    Hanna opened her mouth as if to give another indignant reply, but she seemed to choke on the words. With a sudden cry of pain, she doubled over, clutching at her throat. The cry didn't end - it rose and rose, a strange, inhuman scream that made Ludo and Sieghard cover their ears as its weird echoes rebounded from the trees around them.

    Quick as an arrow from a bow, a twisting rope of flame burst forth from her open mouth, casting long shadows from the trunks of the trees as it shot away into the forest. Ludo caught glimpses of eyes, mouths, and shifting, fungoid flesh within it; Sieghard only caught the suggestion of mocking laughter echoing inside his head. In a moment, it had disappeared out of view, only a fading light receding into the darkness of the woods.

    Left behind, Hanna keeled over, falling senselessly to the ground.

    Hanna was still breathing. Slinging her over his shoulder, Sieghard stumbled back towards the camp. The sky was starting to lighten in the east - in a few hours, it would be dawn.

    Seeing Sieghard and Ludo emerge out of the trees, a bleary-eyed Ingwald came walking over. "What's going on, sir?" he asked. "What - is that Hanna?"

    As Sieghard set Hanna down, she was already beginning to come round, eyes fluttering open again. Instinctively, she clutched at her head, letting out a long, low groan.

    Her brow furrowed in worry, Elsa watched Hanna pick herself off the ground. She had been fearing that Sieghard might have to kill her, and was glad he had managed to bring her back alive. Whether she was still indeed Hanna remained to be seen.

    "Hanna," she said softly. "Who rules the Broken Reaches?"

    Still groggily clutching her head where Sieghard had hit her, Hanna mumbled something under her breath. Leaning in close so he could hear, Ingwald looked back to Elsa.

    "Um, I think she said '**** you, that's who'," he said. "You feeling alright, Hanna?"

    She was looking alright - to Elsa's second sight, the burning light that had clung to her earlier was gone.

    Urgrim looked around sluggishly at the commotion. He had barely said two words since coming to, with Ludo, after Jens and Katryn's rescue of them. His eyes barely seemed focused even now. He was staring through the world, perhaps seeing things more real than the scene around him.

    He looked like death warmed up.

    Perhaps determining that that there was no cause for immediate alarm, he slumped again. His eyes blinked vacantly, in waking sleep.

    "Poor girl wasn't herself," Sieghard told Ingwald. "She's probably sore, but the worst is past. She'll recover." He looked down at where Hanna was laying and muttered "Sorry about the... about... you know," and then tapped his head where he had struck her.

    "Since you're awake, take a small group and find where my horse ran off to," he told Ingwald. "Don't approach it, just find it and come fetch me. Poor beast was acting crazed."

    Ingwald gave Sieghard a look. "Since you're awake," he grumbled, sotto voce, "that's a good one."

    A gaggle of bleary-eyed Thorns stumbled off into the trees to find Sieghard's horse, while Gustaf offered Hanna something from a flask that definitely wasn't company rations. She took a swig of it and grimaced, staring fixedly into the middle distance. "Knew it was a bad idea," she said at last, her voice a hoarse whisper, "smashing that jar."

    By the time the sun was poking its nose over the horizon, Ingwald and his men had returned to the camp empty-handed. "Can't find it anywhere, sir," he said. "If it's run, it's kept running. What happened to it?"

    Sieghard

    "Half of us would be dead now if you hadn't," Sieghard reminded her, his tone sympathetic. He put a hand on Hanna's shoulder. "Though if I had known the danger, I wouldn't have put you through it. I'dve smashed the damn thing myself."

    "Some daemon-light spooked it," he said once Ingwald had returned. "It threw me and tried to trample me once I was down."

    And how much worse might it have been if the daemon was controlling Sieghard. Maybe we can have Urgrim and/or Ludo try tracking the horse down once it's fully light. Still got wounded to bring back and I'd rather not lose another horse to something stupid.

    "We really should get moving already," said Elsa, rubbing her hands together to warm them up. "I know this wasn't much of a night's sleep, but we'll get better beds in Manann's Keep if we get there early. Perhaps Herr Sussman can even be convinced to let us sleep in the castle."

    She munched on road rations and wet her parched throat with a few gulps of water. She still felt a sort of bone-deep weariness from Nahorek's spells, but the tender, blackened flesh on her arm was lightening to a purplish hue and already felt a bit firmer to the touch, which she took as a good sign.

    Some wounds could not really be tended to. They had to heal on their own.

    Finding a relatively private moment with Hanna while striking camp, she asked in a low voice: "Were you... awake the whole time? Or is there a hole in your memory?"

    In case Hanna's still not in a mood to talk about it, here's a generic Fel 44 test: (d100)[33]
