  • Session 20 - Shepherd's Die

    Heinrich had no idea how Dirk and Mellisande had known where they would be before even he knew and the way they were hurriedly rushing them through Altdorf with no answers and only cryptic evasions was entirely too suspicious. The Dread Master of Liches …

  • Session 22 - Shepherd's Die

    “I’m quite sure I don’t know, Madam. I deliver the Post. I don’t rummage through it.” The courier groused impatiently. Trudy nodded again and accepted the sack. The courier nodded and walked back out into the night leaving Gertrude to open the long …

  • Session 1 - Memoirs of Unlife

    I was shocked to receive word from Drakenhof, at least so soon after my departure. Either my presence is more valued than I thought or I was less convincing than I believed in my ruse. I had left word that I was bound for a burial mound in the haunted …

  • Session 2 - Shepherd's Die

    So I found a couple more benefits to being dead. I don’t really get tired, which is handy when you find out there is a Wight King in a barrow mound and he doesn’t care in the slightest about Von Carstein’s or your pathetic beginnings of magical talent. …

  • Shepherd's Die

    The noxious pit bubbled and roiled as skeletal hands flailed and lurched about. Blood flowed in rivulets through the carefully constructed arcane channels only to be carelessly desecrated at its final destination by the frantic positioning of combatants …

  • Session 4 - Shepherd's Die

    Darkness. Burial. Death. Pain. Fight. Anger. RAGE. Small thing, tiny, weak. Bones crunching, screaming, hot gushing blood. More. Hard things. Hard ground, dead, old death. Chasing, hunting, lost. Pain. Hunger. More small …

  • Session 6 - Shepherd's Die

    In the dark crypts and catacombs beneath Drakenhoff the hoarse screams of pain rasped out in agony that weary vocal chords could no longer voice. Blood streaked the walls where splintered talons had long since given way to raw fleshy nubs continued to …

  • Session 7 - Shepherd's Die

    My Lady, it is just as you planned, the Masquerade allowed me to slip away and into the depths of Drakenhof. I have observed many of the surprises Mannfred has in store and will report further upon my return to Waldenhof. One interesting development is …

  • Session 8 - Shepherd's Die

    Master Necromancer Gustav Oppen cursed the foul winds for the hundredth time as he trailed along behind his silent guard. Mannfred had forbade him an escort of Templars and Gustav was convinced it was because Mannfred intended for him to die on this …

  • Session 9 - Shepherd's Die

    It’s easier to be disconnected. The nights blur together, compliance is easy. Thinking is when the pain starts, when the memories threaten. So I wall them away, I hear the world as a distant echo. Though it does seem to be rocking, that’s odd. A …

  • Session 10 - Shepherd's Die

    Silken skirts swirled across the polished dance floor as ladies hidden behind elaborate masks danced the night away. Vibrant colors clashed and mixed as bodies interwove in their intricate patterns confusing the eye. ‘I hate Court, I hate balls, how …

  • Session 12 - Shepherd's Die

    Since the nightmares had gotten worse Heinrich was spending more time almost lucid. Occasionally he dared so much as speak and the others were beginning to take notice. Rollo looked like he was just about to say something. The insane Necrarch, Oliver, …

  • Session 1 0 - Shepherd's Die

    What is all that banging? It keeps hammering away making my head hurt. Trying to wake me. The monster is fighting something. It feels no pain, it barely puts any effort into protecting me. The banging is a goblin, his axe is stuck in my midsection …

  • Session 13 - Shepherd's Die

    “Von Carstein,” Greghor spat, “Leave this interesting creation here and my two embarrassments of fucking failures of apprentices and I will permit you to leave unharmed.” The Surgeon had constructed his new form well and while he taunted, his multiple …

  • Session 14 - Shepherd's Die

    The head of the behir was hoisted atop the coach and lashed into place before the vampires climbed in and pulled tight the drapes. The necrarchs and Oliver’s slowly expanding coterie rode in one coach while Ziegfried, Rollo, and the Gorgon settled into …

  • Session 15 – Shepherd’s Die

    There was a meeting with Mannfred and the Wight Kings. The others boasted of their accomplishments and the Count pressed for more details on the matters that interested him. He seemed focused on Oliver’s former master and his mental state. The necrarch …

  • Session 16 – Shepherd’s Die

    The main vanguard was crumbling under the endless rain of spears from above, it fled in disarray harried by fell bats. The northern flank was faring better as it swarmed over the fortifications on dark wings or simply ghosted through them. The magical …

  • Session 17 - Shepherd's Die

    It had been two years since the Von Carstein's were placed in charge of Templehof. The new Viscount, Ziegfried, had taken a perverse pleasure in forcing Heinrich to terrorize the citizenry into quiet servitude by appointing him to enforce order. While …

  • Session 18 - Shepherd's Die

    ‘I’ll do it.’ Heinrich spoke into the awkward waffling with purpose and conviction. If they did not return with the Crown of Sorcery, they would likely be destroyed; Heinrich would certainly not be able to look after the people of Templehof. If …

  • Session 19 - Shepherd's Die

    Ziegfried flopped the unconscious child on the floor and the others pounced on her. They were rolling her this way and that and trussing her up. The Dread Master was looking particularly ghoulish as his long talons caressed the child's right hand. …

  • Session 21 - Shepherd's Die

    That was entirely too close. Secluded in exile I had forgotten how thoughtless and rash newborns are. I intend to see 900; the Dark Stalkers will need to be managed from a safe distance in future. Arrogant, reckless, destructive, rude, unrefined…I …

  • Session 23 - Shepherd's Die

    "Well then the honorable Baron-Regent of Fort Oberstyre can fuck right the hell off. The Warden of Templehof will continue to decide how best to protect the people of Templehof and if the Viscount takes issue he is welcome to come make his will known. I …

  • Session 5 - Shepherd's Die

    Written years ago, the penmanship is shoddy, the letters sharp and violently scratched into the page It’s been five long years since the damned vampires killed Pa and my uncle. Ma keeps trying to reach me but things just won’t never be the same, and …

  • Session 24 - Shepherd's Die

    The most recent siege of Templehof was going better than expected given the Empire’s superior numbers as the Grand Marshal and the others continued to eliminate strategic targets personally and the Count and his other agents did the hard part of making …

  • Session 25 - Shepherd's Die

    Heinrich sat hunched over maps and letters and rubbed tired eyes. He wore an illusion of a distinguished old gentleman today but he knew under his scarred fingers was truly the fetid gray flesh of a stitched-together monster. To the northeast, the World …

  • Session 26 - Shepherd's Die

    The ruined tower of Melkhior was reminiscent of Greghor’s, the Necrarch’s also shared a penchant for linking their domains with sinister reflections in the Shadowfell. Heinrich stepped through the portal into darkness with his characteristic silence but …

  • Session 27 - Shepherd's Die

    He was turned against his will. He feels loyalty to his people and will not feed upon them. He has endured great pain and in the throes of it, lost himself to the monster inside, slaughtering innocents and feeling guilt for his weakness. He …

  • Session 28 - Shepherd's Die

    Neferata had laid Heinrich bare with such casual ease that the vampire lord had still not recovered. For nearly twenty years now he had hidden his nature and nearly his every thought behind layers upon layers of lies to protect himself. Given no …
