So begins the Casket of Souls campaign. In my version of the North dwarves mine the ore in the fertile hills and the elves live deep in the woods in scattered settlements. The orc king Bragga the wise( or the crippler as the people commonly call him) plots in his stronghold Scorched Carr. His scouts harass the trade routes to Durham and York taking goods and hostages in equal measure. Recently the dwarfs living in Durham city have received news that their mines in Dawdon and Blackhall Rocks have been attacked from below ground through their own tunnels by barbaric lizardmen and their kin. The militia in these villages have pleaded for help from the Prince Bishops soldiers. And now one of the Bishops own mills was attacked from the river last week by the twisted beast men from Brancepeth. Several people were murdered and boxes and crates of food taken. The North is in turmoil and now the hungry dead haunt the night.
My games are played with the Rangers of Shadow Deep rules and Mordheim with Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay critical hit tables.
