For many years the sacred spirit
stones were the centrepiece of the crown jewels of Altdorf.
They were given to the Emperor by the Wood Elf queen as a token
of friendship in a ground-breaking truce between the two nations.
Said to have the power to see beyond death, now they have been
stolen by vile Chaos thugs on a raiding party through the city.
The Warriors have been asked by the Emperor to retrieve them as
the Wood Elf queen arrives soon for a tour of the city and will
most likely want to see the stones. He offers to pay each Warrior
300 Gold for finding the stones.
this adventure as normal until the Objective Room is reached where
the following text should be read:
Chaos Sorcerer of Tzeentch stands in shadow at the back of the
room. He is engrossed in something but looks up when the Warriors
enter. "No doubt you have come for the stones, but to retrieve
them you must first battle my minions." He flicks his wrist
and suddenly the Summoning Room is filled with hideous beasts.
"Now you will pay for your interference!"
not place a miniature on the board to represent the Chaos Sorcerer.
He is far too engrossed in his work to bother the Warriors while
they are fighting.
on the Monster Tables as normal for Objective Room Monsters.
surprise, the Chaos Sorcerer suddenly realises the Summoning Room
is empty apart from the Warriors. "Well done! Obviously I
have underestimated you. Fortunately I am prepared." He pulls
a lever on the side wall. With a grinding noise, the entire wall
of the Summoning Room slowly rotates upwards, giving the Warriors
a clear view of the entire valley outside. Before the Warriors
can stop him, the Chaos Sorcerer leaps on a Flying Disc of Tzeentch
and flies out of the room. The Warriors have failed!
one of the Warriors notices a pile of four other Flying Discs,
conveniently stacked on top of each other in the rear corner.
Now at least they have a chance of catching the Sorcerer!
boards are used for the next part of this adventure. Instead,
a ruler with inches marked on it will come in handy.
the Chaos Sorcerer miniature on the table, 2D6 inches in front
of the four Warriors, which themselves have been equally spaced.
Depending on what Battle Level the Warriors are on, use the appropriate
level Chaos Sorcerer from the Monster tables in the Roleplay Book.
eg. At Battle Level 10 use a Chaos Sorcerer Lord. Randomly place
2D6 trees, scenery etc. suitable for a forest valley on the table
around the Warriors and the Chaos Sorcerer. The Warriors can start
off in any direction they choose. To simulate the speed of the
chase, the scenery will actually be moved backwards instead of
the Warriors being moved forward, although the Warriors still
have the chance to gain on the Chaos Sorcerer. See the diagram
below for placement of models etc.
will be no Unexpected Events occurring while the chase is in progress,
although the Warriors must still roll for Power as normal.
the Warriors’ Phase each piece of scenery moves backwards 6 inches.
Scenery moving off the table edge is placed randomly on the opposite
edge of the playing field. In addition, each Warrior can roll
1D3 and move forward the amount shown. However he may also choose
to drop back a little in which case instead of rolling the dice
he can move backwards up to 6 inches. If the Power dice comes
up as a 1 then the Chaos Sorcerer has managed to fly faster than
the Warriors and moves forward 1D6 inches himself. A Warrior can
attempt to turn up to 45 degrees at the beginning of his turn
before moving in an attempt to dodge trees and obstacles. If,
however he is too slow and flies straight into something roll
1D6 and add his Initiative (subtract 1 for every other obstacle
the Warrior has attempted to dodge this turn) :
Warrior slams head first into the obstacle, splattering his brains
all over the place. He is quite dead and no resurrection spell
can bring him back.
Warrior slams into the obstacle, causing himself 2D6 unmodified
Wounds damage. If he is still alive he topples off the Disc to
the valley below, taking a further 1D6 unmodified Wounds. He must
now travel to the Settlement and await the Warriors.
Warrior manages to break just in time to avoid hitting the obstacle.
However the other Warriors are now such a distance ahead that
it would be impossible to catch them. He must continue to the
Settlement alone. Since he is on the Flying Disc he may subtract
2 weeks from travel.
Disc gets caught up in the obstacle slowing the Warrior down.
Next turn, move him back 6 inches with the scenery.
Warrior attempts to dodge the obstacle and almost makes it. However,
he clips the Disc on the edge, sending it flying off in another
direction. Randomly choose a direction and roll 1D6. This is how
many inches the Disc has veered off course.
in time the Warrior manages to dodge out of the way. Place his
miniature as close to the side of the obstacle as possible and
continue the turn from there.
a Warrior is not headed in a straight line up the table but instead
has turned, when the scenery has moved back, move the Warrior
1 inch in the direction he is facing before rolling for collisions.
any Warrior moves off the play edge he is considered to be out
of the chase - take the miniature off the table. He will have
to meet up with the other Warriors at the Settlement, although
since he has the Disc of Tzeentch he can subtract -2 weeks from
travel. Note that the Warriors can break off the chase at any
time by leaving the play edge and allowing the Chaos Sorcerer
any Warrior is adjacent to the Chaos Sorcerer at any stage, he
may attempt to engage him in battle. However, subtract -2 from
his to hit rolls as the Discs are speeding along at a rate which
makes it hard for the Warrior to keep his balance. The Warriors
may also fire any missile weapons at the Chaos Sorcerer with a
-2 to hit as well. In addition to combat, the Warriors can cast
spells and use magic items against the enemy - note that an inch
counts as 1 square.
the beginning of the Monsters’ Phase the Chaos Sorcerer will attempt
to cast a spell although since he is concentrating on escaping
from the Warriors roll 1D6. On a roll of 1-3 he fails to cast
a spell this turn. He may also attack the Warriors as normal except
with a -2 to hit penalty. If any Warriors are reduced to 0 Wounds
they cannot perform any turns with their Disc - instead they may
only travel in a straight line until healed. If any collisions
occur treat the Warrior as having an Initiative of 1. The Chaos
Sorcerer can also attempt to move out of the way of obstacles
etc. If his path will take him directly into an obstacle then
he will attempt to turn at an angle which will take him away from
the obstacle. If somehow he crashes, roll on the impact table
above. If any roll results in him falling off his Disc the Warriors
can retrieve the stones from his body if he is dead. Otherwise
he will vanish into the forest, never to be seen again.
the Chaos Sorcerer makes it off the front edge of the play edge
the Warriors’ quest will have failed.
quest is over when the Warriors have killed the Chaos Sorcerer
and regained the spirit stones which they find on his dead body.
