Warhammer Fantasy:
Tides of Darkness

Setting

The Old World of the Warhammer Universe is as dark as it can possibly get, danger lurks every turn. Death is constant and strikes randomly, a man you might have seen well and fine earlier that very day could very well be dead by nightfall, that’s how fragile life is in this world.

Though saying that there are those that have lived for quite a long time in this world, the dwarves are as ancient and set into their ways as the stone and metal they craft. The Elves that wield the greatest magic are old and wise; they can live centuries but barely look past their Fifties. Humans however are great in number and common in most corners of the Old World but lack the elder races lifespan, most barely make it past sixty.

There are many things that are enemies of the human race and the Elder races. Chaos are beings of great corruption that follow dark gods with even darker motives, those that follow these gods can range from mutants that were once human but changed by the stigmata of chaos, to full on daemons of chaos which are the gods spirit followers and are similar in appearance to their gods.

There are four chaos gods: There is Nurgle the plague god, this great bloated, disease ridden and boil festering god seeks to cover the Old World in plague and foulness, those that follow him suffer from major diseases and are bloated and swollen from illness those that fight them best be wary they do not catch what the followers have because it could be their downfall.
The next is Khorne the blood god, he seeks to see the world in blood and ruin, his followers are the hardest to spot as they don’t mutate obviously but are still as dangerous as they are great warriors and have great skill in battle.
The third is Tzeentch the changer of ways, this being is the most tricky of the chaos gods as his followers are steeped in magic and are the most ambitious in the Old World, many plans to destroy the Old World are set out by Tzeentch followers, the mutants of tzeentch are also very hard to spot like Khorne but only in early stages as they soon gain tentacles, clawed limbs or have multiple limbs.
The final chaos god is Slaanesh, the god of lust and pleasure those that follow him are the most decadent and self indulgent taking part in many sexual taboos or strange sexual rituals. Slaanesh also manage to taint a lot of the elves causing a civil war and the creation of the Dark Elves.

Other beings that are out to destroy the Elder and Human races are the greenskins or Orcs and Goblins, these are feral looking beings that ruin and pillage or capture any villages they can get their hand on. Even though the Greenskins fight the elder/human races they are not allies with chaos though there are Greenskins that are tainted by chaos.

Players

You will be playing one of the three races, Dwarves, Elves and Humans, there are Halflings but they are very rare in this world. Your characters will be very much human in that if they take a wound then it will be like a real wound causing your character a lot of pain and won’t heal for a while even if treated by a medical character or going to see a doctor IC, if not treated then it could become infected as disease in this world is much more frequent.

There is magic in the world but those that wield it are treated with immense suspicion and fear as their power is very much related to the forces of chaos and those that grow too powerful for their own boots soon get swallowed by the powers of chaos or destroyed by their own magic as it is as temperamental as a active volcano.

The world you the players inhabit is filled with superstition and belief, religion is a very strong aspect and those that preach in the streets are often listened to and heeded, one wrong word among a throng of people could end in your hanging or being burnt at the stake. If you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time you can be arrested and jailed that’s how fickle the people of the Old World are.

Character Sheet

Name: (Human names of the Empire are very German so Germanic names are a good place to start, Dwarves have odd surnames in that males are named after their father e.g Gotrek son of Gurni= Gotrek Gurnisson and females are named similar though it ends in ‘Sdtor’ there are dwarves with last names different to this but this is only through a great action to which they become synonymous with e.g Snorri Nosbiter. As for Elves it’s rather freeform just keep it Elf-ish.)

Race: (Elf, Human, Dwarf)

Age: (Humans live upto about 50-60, Dwarves to about 500, Elves to about 1000.)

Career: (This is your job, for this you will need a book that I happen to have downloaded, which is the Career Compendium of the Pen and Paper Warhammer Fantasy RP, I can give you the link to download and we will discuss your Career in PMs. Don’t like this? Then tough cus it the only way to get character fitting of this world without sticking out like a sore thumb.)

Appearance: (This is what you wear and carry; you can make an optional list of inventory such as trinkets, money and other miscellaneous items but is not necessary.)

Personality: (This is how you act, remember Humans are very superstitious and rather religious bunch. Dwarves are gold obsessed, drink loving elf-haters. And finally Elves are haughty, rather snooty and mysterious beings.)

History: (This will be your backstory, if you’re from The Empire (which is where the story will start) then say what you do in your daily career as your career will be your job to begin with before this story begins. If a Dwarf then say what dwarf hold you came from and how you got to the Empire. If Elf then you’re from a place called Ulthuan (Atlantis basically) and how you travelled the great distance to the Empire.)

Information

Careers
I've noticed a few hiccups/struggles with the career part, when it comes to the Career Compendium you cannot choose any careers that have Advanced tabbed next to it, examples of this would be; The Witch Hunter, High Priest, Innkeeper and Admiral. Anything with the basic tab next to it is perfectly fine, examples of this are; Bounty Hunter, Initiate, Burgher and Marine. To find this tab look to the left or right hand side it should be on the same side as the picture. This is only to help you choose your career, you may if you wish choose to put the Trappings that career has into your Appearance. If you are still unsure then please feel free to PM me.

Career Compendium wrote:You also get, regardless of

• Common clothing consisting of a shirt, breeches, and worn
boots, a tattered cloak, a dagger tucked in a boot or belt, a sling bag

The Warhammer Universe

Those who are not familliar with it can use this wiki to search for stuff if they wish:
http://whfb.lexicanum.com/wiki/Main_Page#.TpXKb3LndI4


Anything else to do with this universe be it videos or other links of such shall be put here.

Timeline
With our universe the dates are split AD and BC, in the Warhammer universe their AD is when Sigmar foundates the Empire which is marked as IC (Imperial Calender), any dates beforehand are marked as -XXX.

Gotrek and Felix Timeline (Doesn't have all dates but are most accurate.)
Warhammer: Age of Reckoning Timeline (Has nearly all dates but it's not as accurate due to being a game timeline.)

NPCs

Humans

Name: Heinrik Skuttler
Race: Human

Age: 52

Career: Rat Catcher

Appearance: Heinrik is a wizened and rather old looking man, he stands at about 4”10’ which is rather small amongst Empire men who reach about 5”10’. he is a very frail and thin looking man weighing only about 95lbs in weight this is due to the fact he is poor and rather malnourished as poor people often are, his features are of a rat-like nature having small beady brown eyes that hide behind thin wire framed spectacles, his nose is rather thing and long almost like a rat’s snout and his ears are rather long and obvious amongst his Chrome slick backed hair. His clothing consists of tatty black leather jacket that’s covered in brown stains and a few patches of other material sown in worn away places, Brown leather gloves that are a bit cleaner than the jack but still have a couple of brown stains on them, Dark green breeches that are similar to the jacket in that they are brown stained with a few bits of patchwork here and there but he has a brown leather belt with the buckle in the shape of a rat made our of iron to keep them up on his small thin frame and finally a pair of Black leather boots highly scuffed and stained.

Other things he has with him are a long crudely crafted spear that he seems highly efficient with for someone so small and pitiful looking, a backpack that’s very tatty and has corpses of dead rats dangling from it. The first thing you notice though is a small scruffy looking and rather mangy looking Schnauzer that growls and yips at you with extreme aggressiveness.

Personality: Heinrik is rather his appearance in that he has rat-like qualities, he’s cunning and quick to think while also being rather cowardly and mistrusting, though he has some positive human qualities in that he can be loyal to those he deems true friends and those that have done him great deeds. He loves his dog ‘Mange’ to bits as he’s had him for quite a while, the dog is vicious to newcomers but gets used to them quickly, it’s also not afraid of thing bigger than him the reason for it being vicious to strangers.

History:
Born and raised in Nuln Heinrik has spent nearly all his life working and trying to earn money, his brother Edmund became a Watchmen just to help the family fun further, his mother was an Apothecary seller and specialised in many herbal arts, his father however was a Sea Captain and had died a year after his birth due to his vessel being captured by Orcs and he was eaten. This left his family penniless which caused Heinrik to live the life he chose which is that of a Rat Catcher, it was good pay and there were rare threats....Apart from the time he came across Ratmen in the sewers but being craft and cunning as they were he managed to escape before they had noticed. If anyone knows the sewers it’d be Heinrik.


Maps
If anyone finds any maps to any of the cities or places in the Old World then be my guest and link them and I'll add them here.

Map of Bretonnia
Map of Albion
Map of Nuln (You begin here.)
Map of Kislev

Name: Emilia Von Krieg

Race: Human

age: 23

Career: Deepwatcher (Page 59)

Appearance: Emilia is a strapping young women with short red hair although her face is not often seen as she wears a filter mask to block out the mold and other dangerous substances that reside in the deep dark caves she explores. she has she has deep blue eyes and a pale complexion due to little sunlight
She is about 5,3 feet tall and weighs about 45 kg. She wears a tight fitting leather exploration suit that shows her feminine curves of quite wel. she uses a pickaxe as a weapon because she thought is was funny to use in tunnels.

Personality: Emilia is an eternal optimist, this is because her job carries the risk that she wont live to see the light of day again and yet she has survived up to the current day.
women find her a wench because she hangs out with the men alot and the suit she wears and because she's not afraid to use her charms to gain some favors. She has a strange fascination with trolls, probably because of the troll slayers wich lived around the village

History: Emilia grew up in the worlds edge mountains in a small village. Her father was a deepwatch and so was his grandfather. and it was only a matter of time before she to became one and right from the beginning she had a talent for it. she could find hidden passages, looming threats, and not to forget hidden valuables like the most experienced worker.
When she was a little girl a group of troll slayers came to the village because of the many trolls living in the tunnels and around the rivers. She loved hearing the tales they told and memorised them by heart. Because of this when the deepwatch group encountered a troll it was usually Emilia who dispatched it with cold precision. On her twentienth birthday she set out to explore the caves and tunnels of the Empire. now she hires herself to who ever needs her deepwatching skills. Currently she has a small contract in Nuln mapping some small tunnel complexes found under the city

It's a pretty big and complex list.

@Mathonius: Interesting character, a little tidy up in terms of grammar and punctuation and maybe a bit more detail in her history as to how she came to Nuln (The start of the IC) and appearance. But apart from that she seems like a nice fit into the world.

Edit: Oh by the way, a thing not noticed in the career book is that:
Career Compendium wrote:You also get, regardless of

boots, a tattered cloak, a dagger tucked in a boot or belt, a sling bag

cutlery set, a hand weapon (axe, club, sword, etc.) and a purse
holding 2d10 Gold Crowns (gc).


For the Gold part I have thought 15 gold would be adequate to start with. Just thought you should note the free weapon part, so any career that says nothing about a weapon in the trappings part does still get a weapon, do with that info what you wish.

Name: Husker Duganson

Race: Human

Age: 47

Career: Bear Tamer (page 28)

Appearance: Husker is a giant of a man, standing at 7"2' of pure muscle. At least, that's what he tells himself. The man has gained some pounds from his rather excessive drinking, but that's just because none can rival the ale of Kislev. But the man does indeed possess the strength that's almost on par with his companion bear, Sasha.
The man is completely bald, but features an impressive amount of pitch black facial hair. He has massive sideburns, which grow over into a big mustache. The mustache runs from under his nose, down the sides of his mouth, along his jawline.

Bear taming doesn't come without danger, and Husker has the scars to prove it. There's a large scar running from his forehead, down across his right eye, and ending halfway across his right cheek. His right eye has turned milky white, and is severely impacting his vision. It's effectively turned blind. His left eye is still in perfect working condition, better even, since it has to compensate for the loss of it's right counterpart. It has a dark brown color, hugging against black.

Husker also features some tattoos. His arms are encased in intertwined tribal markings, showing his heritage as well as his devotion to the god Ursun. On his back he has a big tattoo of a bear claw, the symbol of his people. Ironically, a bear slash has destroyed parts of it.

As said before, bear taming is dangerous, even after you have tamed a bear. So in order to protect his body, Husker wears heavy leather armor in the form of a long coat, adorned with bear fur and chains, as well as leather padded pants.

Personality: Despite his somewhat intimidating appearance, Husker is actually a hearty man who enjoys the company of others, especially under the cover of a good drink. He's loud and rowdy and that's even without him being drunk. Enjoys a good barfight as much as the next person, mostly when the odds are stacked against him. But he's not just a big oaf who enjoys nothing but fighting, he has been known to have intelligent conversations with others. He loved to travel the world, see different lands, meet new people, taste new ales. There's very little that scares the man, as he sees everything as a challenge to overcome. Like most Ursun followers, Husker sees the southern gods as weak and not worthy of praise. He's not hesitant to point this out to anybody who's willing to bring up the subject.

Loves his bear, Sasha, as if she's his own daughter. He's raised her ever since he caught her as a cub, back when he was only a wee lad of around 20. The two of them are inseparable, they eat together, they sleep together, they walk together. Sasha, an enormous black bear, is much like Husker. She enjoys meeting new people, enjoys a fight just as much as Husker and loves making as much noise as Husker. She's a bit playful, which can make her very dangerous. Followers of Ursun always try to keep a spark of wilderness in their bears and Sasha is no exceptions. If she ever takes interest in you and decides to play around a bit, it's best to just lay down and hope she gets bored with you soon enough.

History: Husker is from the city of Kislev, where he lived with his family for the better part of his life. His father was a Ursun priest and demanded much respect in the city. Every year, Jusker would see his father and older brothers ride off to defend the city against the yearly Kurgan and Kayazak raids. He was still too young to join at the time, but it was his dream to one day ride with them into battle. To serve his country.
When he finally got to the age where was allowed to join the ranks of militia, his father made no hesitation to send him the first bear hunting trip. That was where Husker found Sasha, a small black bear cub. He raised her and trained her, until finally the time was there that they would both ride into combat. By that time his father had already passed away and his oldest brother had taken over the mantle of Ursun priest.
But Kislev grew small for Husker, he wanted to expand his horizon. So he left Kislev to become a wanderer, he traveled south, with the Urskoy. The world was a fascinating, but very dangerous place. But his life living in perhaps the most hostile of places hardened him for whatever the world could throw at him. Together with Sasha he performed simple tasks, too dangerous for commoners. Or he simply put on shows inside the cities he visited, you'd be surprised at how many people want to see a life bear, or even try and wrestle with it.

Not in the slightest. Warhammer fantasy uses a large collection of careers each with their own interesting apperances, items and skills.

@Mathonius: Indeed, Kislev is exactly that. Brettonnia is like Proper Britain, Albion is like Celtic Britain and The Empire is like Germany.

Can I be Estalian?
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

What you were for the last Warhammer Fantasy RP? Sure be my guest.

@Mathonius: Ok, still a little bare in the appearance but worthy of acceptance. In future buddy, look at a CS like Asmo's and see where you could make additions but it comes with experience so I can't expect you to get everything so early in your time here. Accepted.

@MLS: http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h297/ ... cenary.jpg
Hope you can read that ok.

Nope, there's no need for it as this will be a more character/story style RP rather than a Roll Dice/Pen&Paper style RP. I only ask of the career bit so characters actually fit into the Warhammer World properly.

I swear to god, if you say "Nah, I don't like it anymore". I will make every RP you and me are in a living hell >.>

Oh, and I have too much free time (no I don't I don't have any free time, what the hell am I doing?)

Mercenary

I could easily live several lifetimes without quashing another peasant revolt. Unless, of course, the revolt pays good gold. Ale doesn't buy itself, you know.

(Core) War never ends in the Old World and that means there's always a need for fighting men. While the Empire does maintain a regular army, its strength is bolstered by the Mercenaries. Nobles and rich Merchants also hire such fighters to protect their interests, many having what amounts to small armies.
Mercenaries range from wild youths with a taste for adventure to professional grizzled soldiers who've seen a dozen battles or more. These sell-swords come from all over, though Tilea is particular famed for its regiments. All Mercenaries dream of untold riches; for most of them, the reality is an early death and an unmarked grave.

Skills: Animal Care or Gamble, Common Knowledge (Bretonnia, Kislev, or Tilea), Dodge Blow, Drive or Ride, Gossip or Haggle, Perception of Search, Secret Language (Battle Tongue), Speak Language (Tilean) or Swim

Talents: Disarm or Quick Draw, Rapid Reload or Strike Mighty Blow, Sharpshooter or Strike to Stun

Career entries: Bodyguard, Bounty Hunter, Demagogue, Fieldwarden, Kislevite Kossar, Militiaman, Miner, Norse Beserker, Outrider, Pit Fighter, Soldier, Thug, Watchman

Career exits: Bodyguard, Bounty Hunter, Outlaw, Sergeant, Shieldbreaker, Veteran

Tilea: Mercenaries are so common in Tilea that they are represented by guilds. Tilean mercenaries are known for their bargaining skills and have even switched sides during battle when offered more money by their opponents.
Talent: Specialist Weapon (Two-handed) or Strike to Stun
Weapon: Tilean pike or crossbow

Empire: The Empire's mercenaries are adventuring ruffians with a wide assortment of weapons. These men from free company regiments in the Empire's armies, or travel to the Border Princes when there are no wars to fight at home.
Talent: Specialist weapon (parrying) or Sharpshooter
Weapon: Additional hand weapon or bow

Bretonnia: Bretonnia lords do not hire mercenaries in their armies, considering them a waste of money when peasants cost nothing at all. Bretonnian mercenaries are therefore rare, but not unheard of.
Talent: Specialist weapon (Cavalry) or Sharpshooter
Weapon: Demilance or bow

Border Princes: Mercenaries are the mainstay of Border Princede armies, travelling from across the Old World to make their living. Native Border Princede mercenaries typically fight as the core troops of an army.
Talent: Sharpshooter or Strike to Stun
Weapon: Spear or crossbow

Kislev: Bravery and resilience are the qualities sought by the employers of Kislevite mercenaries. These men are often hired to bolster standing armies against Chaos threats. Kislevite horsemen, however, are loyal only to their own clans, and do not work as mercenaries.
Talent: Stout-Hearted or Street Fighting
Weapon: Knuckle dusters or bow

Estalia: Estalian mercenaries are skilled swordsmen with hot tempers. Because they don't cooperate well with other mercenaries, Estalians are often hired in smaller groups and given special objectives to handle on their own. They perform well at this role.
Talent: Specialist weapon (Parrying) or Strike to stun
Weapon: Main gauche or crossbow

Norsca: Norse mercenaries are considered too unreliable for regular use, because they sometimes disregard orders in the heat of battle. Nevertheless, Norse mercenaries are occasionally employed for intimidation value.
Talent: Frenzy or Menacing
Weapon: Additional hand weapon or bow

Araby: The horsemen of Araby are widely considered to be among the best in the world (although Kislevite horsemen might disagree). Most Arabyan mercenaries who travel to the Old World arrive without mounts, but they can serve as cavalry if equipped by their employers.
Talent: Trick Riding or Specialist Weapon (Fencing)
Weapon: Scimitar (as rapier) or bow

Why did you quote the mercenary?

Ah, all right Arch. I'll think on it
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Because MLS can't download the book so he referenced a career she was interested in.

@Everyone: To those who actually have the books and have had a good look at their career please look at the career exits and see how you want your character to advance as this will be part of your character progression through the story.

Oh, I didn't read the second part of your last post, only the reply to me, haha.

All right, sounds cool
