Konistag 2 Nachexen
Contacts provided by KD are non-existent. Witchhunts of last few years have driven them to ground. Rumours of a bloodthirsty battle between Ulricans and elves in the Laurelorn forest suggest the Temple of Ulric may be a good place to find new followers.
Coin supposed to arrive from Nuln yesterday, but has not arrived.
Backertag 16 Nachexen
Found a tavern near the North gate which seems like a good cover. Will make an offer.
The rumours of war from the North seem to be getting stronger. Another man tried to recruit me into the Militia. Seems that Praag has fallen and Kislev may be out of the fight.
Bezahltag 25 Nachexen
Have signed up with Ulrican forces headed north to face the Norscans. K doesn’t care whose blood is spilled, so why should I. Besides, if A looks like he may win, I may find myself in a good position to help.
Konistag 10 Jarhdrung
First battle against greenskins. Our general, Deputy High Priest Claus Liebnitz led us well. I’d estimate over 300 of them slain to around 40 of ours. K drinks deeply today.
The ferocity with which these men of the northern empire fight is inspiring. It makes me wonder, Is U that different from K?
Marktag 14 Pflugzeit
We march back to Middenheim. A’s forces are overwhelming. I attempted to slip through the lines to join them but was seen. Brought before CL for punishment. 10 strokes.
Backertag 15 Pglugzeit
My punishment continues. Three times I and a score of other troublemakers were sent back into the heaviest line of fighting to hold the line while the Templars retreated. Only 3 of us survived. K strengthens my sword arm. CL praised my strength today.
Angestag 25 Sigmarzeit
Second day of the Siege of Middenheim. The city will fall and the slaughter will be glorious. CL called for me. Wanted to know how I have managed to survive. He has worked out that I only mouth platitudes to U but doesn’t know the truth. He is weak and knows that he worships a weak god. K will draw him in.
Wellentag 9 Vorgeheim
Met with CL today in tavern. He brought one of his newer ‘Brothers of the Axe’. A sullen women by the name of Carlott. After I left I realised that I knew that name and looked through the list provided by KD. CL may not know it but he has followers of K firmly established in his Brotherhood of the Axe.
CL continues to play a game with me, thinking I don’t know that he is trying to use me. The Assassin I hired to retrieve the relic has been killed by a group of militiamen, but CL assures me he has them under control. They are being sent to work for the Sigmarites.
Backertag 28 Vorgeheim
Have discovered what I believe to be Oberst’s prophesies but they are trapped behind a wall of molten rock. Perhaps the Ulricans can lay the breath of Winter on the stone, long enough to dash across? Will need to trick them into trying.
Bezahltag 28 Nachgeheim
The Brass skull has been found. CL let slip that those militiamen have been sent into the Drakwald to retrieve it. C advised afterwards that CL intends to somehow use the relic to strengthen the church of Ulric.
Don’t think that CL knows my true loyalties. Has asked me to try and find someone who might be able to advise on mystic rituals. I’ll wait a few days and then feed him the awakening ritual. K will stand astride Middenheim and blood will flow.
My contacts in the capital tell me that an unidentified relic was brought to Altdorf by a Sigmarite priest around 20 years ago. From the description of the relic, it sounds like it could be the Dagger of Yul K’chuan. Like that artefact, this one is described as an iron dagger inscribed with dark runes. Its hilt is said to be in the shape of a skull with three eyes. What are the odds of knowledge of the skull and the dagger turning up at the same time? Where then is the chalice?
Marktag 10 Erntezeit
CL has fallen. Xathrodox wasn’t properly summoned. The Brass Skull has been destroyed. The dagger is in Altdorf, and the cup is also rumoured to be in the south. Fleeing the city tonight. C urges me to stay but those damned militiamen know too much. Thankfully two of them died as part of CL’s stupidity. Perhaps the shack first to pick up supplies.
