Through dungeons deep and caverns old
Recently we sat down with our friend Haarspalta and had a classic game of Warhammer Quest. We did not want to use any expansion or own rules. Instead the aim was to portray a regular game including all the funny surprises which might appear throughout the game. The Heroes used are the classic four and they did not have any experience/gold before the start.
FREE THE PRISONERS
During a recent raid on Miragliano, the Skaven took around twenty wealthy and influential citizens as captives, and have been making all manner of unreasonable and outrageous threats ever since. The Skaven know full well that their unconditional demands to hand over all the wealth, women and children of the city will never be agreed to, but it gives them a good excuse to send back portions of their victims as proof that they mean business.
The Warriors have been employed to enter the Blighted Marshes and rescue the prisoners from the dungeons of the Chaos rat men.
After the battle was won the adventurers searched the room. The prisoners were being kept below the fighting pit, in a network of cells and guardrooms. Twelve noble men of Miragliano could be saved by the heroes. At the bottom of the cell complex, there was a secret door that led to the marshes above and to safety. In their weakened state the prisoners were not able to open it, but the Warriors had no trouble. They smashed it down and took the captives to freedom.
The reward was paid in dozens of gold coins and the heroes were free to spend them as they desired. The armouries of Miragliano were a good place to start or maybe the Tavern first? No matter what, the next Adventure already awaits…but this is another story to be told at another time.
I hope you enjoyed the little insight we are offering here. Warhammer Quest is a very random game and it could easily happen that you’ll have to face three minotaurs waiting in the first room, crushing your party. But as you can read above it all could end up well too. All I can recommend is to check out the game for yourself, lots of fun guaranteed!
