I have taken over a new campaign. Our players rolled up some new characters and I am going to do the GMing.
So far we have a Human Ratcatcher, Human Navigator, High Elf Bounty Hunter, and a Ogre Maneater.
The Navigator has been assigned to map out the Drakenfeld Woods near Middenheim. There have been some strange disappearences in the area. Every expedition into the woods winds up dead with body part everywhere.
They have been told by an old man in town to stay away from that acursed place. Many years before there was a family that lived there, there was a fire and the family was slain, since then no one has been able to get near the place.
On a side note there are some huge horse prints found around the edges of the forrest....
They failed a folklore test and think they belong to some Knights of the White Wolf...(the Ratcatcher is from Middenheim)
I am leaning toward them coming up on a shrouded figure on a huge horse..... well it will be Archaon... I am also replacing all of the wound cards with the severe cards.
Basically I am setting them up to get slaghtered on their first mission.... Grim and Perilous world
Any suggestions on where I should go after that? Should they wake up with no gold left and be in a Shallyan hospital? Or should I just kill them and have them start new new characters?
