He awoke amongst a bed of dark leaves expecting to feel groggy, but instead he felt surprisingly alert. The recent memories came flooding back to him, the battle for the town of Rensburg and the spirited defense of the townsguard, but it was the awe and power of the Chaos invaders that left the greatest impression, their incredible strength, swordsmanship and their desire, their unrelenting will. There was no guilt in the admiration, he admired some of his fellow soldiers and their bravery in the face of such power, but the outcome was never in doubt; only the humans fled, the invaders only poured forward. But how had he survived, why was he spared? He looked out between the branches, onto the ruins of Rensburg and the bloody battlefield strewn with corpses upon which the birds were now circling. He saw shadows moving. There were others out there, he could sense it, others like him. What did that mean, pure kinship with fellow survivors? He didn't think so. Something had happened, some changing of himself and the area which had once housed his garrison. There seemed to be a fizzle in the air, whispers in the clouds, a sense of expection. Poised on the edge of the forest he knew he needed to be patient. He looked down at his axe, rusted; his hands clutching it had a tinge of blue, the skin beginning to peel away. His belly was exposing his guts, displaying the beauty of his previously unseen insides. He felt the wonderful texture of the boils on his chin. None of this surprised him, he was ready......
So there's some backstory for you, I envisage this being an event for warbands (primarily RoC) but you can also be a group of adventurers, or a unit or any collection of vagabonds, but these obviously don't have the additional fun of rolling on the RoC tables! I think it best to have a maximum of 4 players (one from each table edge) and I'll be the GM and will provide the necessary scenery and NPC models (this gives me a new focus to paint up some lead) and you should expect a narrative and a bit of roleplaying with your warbands. However don't expect any play-testing in advance or an encyclopaedic knowledge of third edition rules!
I never had the chance to run a narrative game as a younger gamer, so here's my opportunity, I can't wait!
Let me know if you're interested and maybe some of you would like to run an interlinked or completetly separate narrative game so we can further progress our warbands?
