Rotbelly

Zharr Goroth whips bit into Rotbelly's hide.  They drove him forward, into a blackiron cage to be loaded onto one of their massive daemon engines.  The Daemon Whisperer stepped forward, raised his left hand, and gazed into Rotbelly's soul.  Rotbelly felt an unnatural sense of calm wash over him.  Before he even noticed what was happening, the cage was slammed shut, and he was being carted across the countryside, black smog belching from the engine's daemoniac smokestacks.

The Hand of The Pit

It's got the will of The Pit - In its hands
It's got the mommas and the poppas - In its hands
It's got the unwary children - In its hands
It's got the whole ruin in its hands.

The Arena of Kou'uch

On Sunday, we hosted the first real event of Efengie: Season 4.  After suffering defeat at the hand of Arkhan the Black at the Helfire Gate in Shyish (Coalescence: Malign Portents), the peoples of Efengie followed the Malign Portents to the Arena of Kou'uch, hidden deep within the Dark Forest.  Built long ago by the Seraphon, the Arena once served as a sacrificial altar.  It has lain dormant for thousands of years, but the portents have led soothsayers to its ruined steps.

Campaign: Heart of Darkness

I finally got things finished up for the Heart of Darkness campaign book!  Hooray!  I've already written several posts about it, but it's full of everything anyone could want from a Skirmish setting, Artefacts, a Command Trait, Mutations, Injuries, Spells, Prayers, and a Rewards Table.  It has five battleplans designed with the Dark Age of Sigmar aesthetic and story-driven gameplay in mind.  On top of that, it includes a brand new Quest mechanic.


I'm sure typos and whatnot will be found, so please let me know if you run across anything.  You can find the new book on the AoS Downloads page.

The Shepherd

Olaf coughed, choking on the tainted air and choking up bloody bits of Nurgle knows what.  Looking around, he noticed that nobody was watching, so he coughed louder and doubled over as if writhing in agony.  Maybe if the overseers saw how blessed he was, he would get recruited into the ranks of the Plaguetown yeoman.

Dark Age of Sigmar: Exploring the Ruins

The last major piece of content for "Heart of Darkness" is the Skirmish Rewards of Battle table.  For Dark Age of Sigmar, I thought it should focus on storytelling, so this Rewards of Battle table is kind of a hybrid between the Skirmish book version, and the old Mordheim exploration tables.

The Chosen Axes... of Hashut!

I got the Chosen Axes Shadespire warband for my birthday.  I've viewed Shadespire warbands as an opportunity to do some wacky conversions on a small scale such that they do not have to be followed up with a full army's worth of the same.  So far, it's been very rewarding and fun with my Bretonnian themed take on Steelheart's Champions, and now a Chaos Dwarf version of the Chosen Axes.
