The night was quiet in the valley. The stars were a spectacular display in the velvet blue background behind the Blackspines. A peaceful song from the strings of an Ulthuani dulcimer drifted in the night air. The Asur camp was at rest.

But a light appeared in the darkness of the mountain shadow and the camp was stirred to alert. The sharp eyes of the Shadow Warriors caught it first. It was not the sickly violet light of Druchii dark magics. It was the red-golden glow of a forest fire. Yet only scrub grew on this part of the foothills.

The first sounds came to the keen Asur ears as the commanders dressed their lines. It began as a low rumble like a distant waterfall. Then it slowly grew to a roar like an avalanche. It seemed a thousand hammers beat upon the ground in a symphony of fury.

The light grew until the valley glowed red. The sound became deafening and was punctuated by squeals of unspeakable agony. When the first ones came into view the light and noise became clear. It was not the fall of a thousand hammers. It was the hooves of a stampede. Several hundred head of beautiful elven steeds had been doused with oil and set ablaze. The herd had been sent running down the canyon from the Wrath Gate burning, terrified, agonized and dying.

The hellish stampede thundered through the Asur camp uncontrollable and blind. Most had to be speared or shot to be put out of their misery. Many died on the hoof. A trail of burning bodies snaked up toward the mountains.

The mayhem was short lived. The camp was brought under control within half an hour. Some scorched tents and a few overturned soup kettles were the extent of the damage. Charred corpses and the lingering smell of burnt horsehair were all that remained.

As the camp tried to come to grips with the horror that had just been inflicted upon them, a white stallion galloped into camp. It was not burned, but it dripped red. A horsemaster soothed the beast and brought it to rest. Cut deeply into the hide of its flank was a message in Druchii runes:

Dear Asur,

Thank you for all the heads of my Druchii, bloody suits of Naggarothi armor and the other lovely gifts that you have delivered to me, along with your warm regards, over the course of your incursion into the Wrath Gate. I was particularly touched by the present left on my writing desk when you held the Gate fortifications.

In repayment for your thoughtful generosity, I am returning all of your mounts captured over the course of the battles. I know how you Asur dote upon your horses.

I hope that this gift conveys my most sincere sentiments upon this glorious celebration. The Wrath Gate is sealed again! Perhaps you should barbecue?

May you ever be as successful in the future,
General Kala Kodai of House Velari
Eternal Thorn in the Asur Side


-------------------------------------------------------

Reality Check -
OK, I just had to do it. The temptation was just too strong. The moment was just too right. The stars aligned and the karma was handed to me like the keys to a new car for all the little Asur taunts in my journal (which I confess are sometimes quite amusing).

To the Druchii players who helped seal the Wrath Gate, I offer congratulations. To the Asur players, I offer my sincere hopes that this little poke will be taken with humor and/or renewed zeal to continue playing and writing good fluff. That and the hopes that you won't stalk me and throw bricks through my apartment window.

To all I would like to say that both the game and the story are far from over.

I shall take this in the spirit it was given. Now Prince Aethran has a new goal: exterminating Druchii at an exponentially increasing rate (which he has been doing for some time), but more specifically a single Druchii in particular....

And as for the bricks in windows, I know where you live... :twisted: ;)

....actually, I don't. :evil: :P

Kala once again you leave me simply amazed by driving the dagger of insult directly into the thigh of our enemies, with a innocent smile. I love it.

I have no doubt that many Asur wanted a piece of the General even before this (some players even wanted pick out bricks).

But you never know. You may have the opportunity to rejoice at Kala's demise. I'm playing so that if the model for Kala dies, then Kala dies in the story. I don't use her often - only when the story calls for it. But I've put her in a couple of critical battles so far. She even took two wounds at Maibd Pass.

Also, I am going to start giving up Black Lotus defeats to Asur fluff writers. I'm 5 for 4 in the campaign so far. Fortunately most of the 4 were at the 6th Gate. But the point is that we will see more of the rivalry. The Gate may be sealed and other fights may call, but Kala hasn't forgotten the ancient enemy.

A very Druchii trait in my opinion. Smile when you are at the most malicious. In fact that should be the national motto of Naggaroth - "Murder with a smile"

I am pleased to have inspired an evil laugh.

General Kala is a true inspiration to all truehearted Druchii. Where else but under her inspired leadership would one lone Druchii Captain get the idea to collect Asur ears!

Now I have a Slaanesh insurrection to put down.

Well, I have to congratulate you on showing the asur some true cruelty.

Shame though, I hear horse is a fine meat.

Hang on, you just gave the asur free food! You evil fool!

Come now. Give me more credit than that. We mixed black lotus extract in with the burning oil. :twisted:

I will second that, it just makes the day so much more pleasent if you can go about your work with a smile ;)

I definately think that this story will have generated more than a few evil laughs, mine included :twisted:

I did laugh when I saw it, even though I am an Asur through and through. It is the sort of thing that the Druchii do. And that we Asur do not do such things is what puts us above our fallen cousins ;) :P .

You can have your moral high ground -


"We shall strike down our foes with sharp steel and cold hearts. The weak die so that the strong prevail and none shall be spared. Then and only then will our enemies know the true meaning of fear."

Malekith, The Witch King of Naggaroth



I think that sums it up pretty well

*tips hat*

Well done. I am feeling extreamly left out. No warhammer in over a month, which means I havent gotten a chance to do ANYTHING for this campaign, but prod the fluff on a bit. My hat goes off to you sir.

Kala, I swear. thanx for the horses back, but by Asuryon, if I ever get my hands on you, you won't see the next sunrise, even as corrupted as they are in your twisted country of Naggoroth.

just kidding man. nice write up, btw

Yes, I will take the moral high ground. Showing mercy isn't actually weak, by the way. It shows that there is no sense in killing someone when you don't have to. If I were to speak from as close to a DE's view as I can get to, why waste the effort killing someone you've already defeated? You can wait until they get better, letting them stew on their loss as time passes. It aggravates them, and meanwhile, you can flaunt it to them every time you see them, aggravating them even more, until they lose control, attack you, and then, knowing it will be coming (you engineered it, after all) THEN you can defeat them again, and show mercy again, and then you can prance around boasting that they are so bad that even when they tried to get you from behind, they STILL couldn't beat you.... :twisted:
The friend who introduced me to WFB did this to me after the first battle, and it went on for weeks before I kicked his ass utterly in a 3000 point massacre.... :D

And as soon as I can, I will get every one of my little circle of friends to have one big battle. And I shall wipe out the druchii utterly.... :twisted: .

Then I shall have the fun of the write up.....

I believe this thread has made the asur kin a bit mad. They are now advancing strong around the 6th gate...

Actually, according to my spies in the enemy camp, they seem more worked up about rescuing Prince Regulus. They have yet to mention my little equestrian parade.

Still, if they are advancing, they are advancing. Doesn't matter what motivated them. Time to counterattack.

Yeah. The loss of Prince Regulus have hit them hard. I hope he'll be gone for good. That is a bit like your "Operation Infight" or whatever you called it. They have been trown into disarray...

the asur have not been "thrown into disarray" my druchii friend. actually, had that assassination nonsense actually had any impact at all, it wouldve been included in the fluff.

and as for Regulus, we shall not despair, but gain heart and free him form the clutches of the foul druchii.

and as for those horses...."ill get you next time, kala! next time!" *shakes fist* :lol:

Disarray? I doubt it, Nagathi. We'll get Regs back. My Prince swore an oath to rescue him, apparently, so that's what I'll do (as soon as I can find a scenario that would work for it).

EDIT: Hey, cool, my title says "off the alta" now. I wondered whether or not the ones holding the sacrificial knife would actually bother to finish me. I've been on that damn altar for a while :lol: .

I don't keep track of all the fluff that's being written, but I know it is there, or will be.

Soup kettles? We asur would have something far more elegant...
