Raiders of the Vistula – Pt. 5

Seven runs over and cuts the ropes securing the launch to the Raedwulf as the Leutnant and his remaining soldiers board the smaller boat, returning fire as they go. As the launch separates from the larger riverboat, you can hear Reisman yelling at the pilot to get the boat underway. Scope ducks back down […]

Raiders of the Vistula – Pt. 4

OOC: Now to show what is happening above decks. The crew works quietly as the Raedwulf moves slowly towards the bridge, its sister ships lined up behind her. You can see a pair of motor boats moving slowly down the line, inspecting each ship and its cargo. It’s obvious that the Germans commandeered the […]

Raiders of the Vistula – Pt. 3

OOC: We are going to do this scene a bit in reverse. We will start with those lucky souls in the hold. Then I will deal with the people above decks in a follow-on post. On the Raedwulf: As the ruins of the destroyed bridge slowly come into view, you make your way down […]

Raiders of the Vistula – Pt. 2

Der Heilige Flamme des Törzburg

Thor takes a long pull on his pipe before pulling a small oilskin wrapped object from inside his coat. Untying the parcel, he reveals a small leather-bound journal and what looks like a piece of ancient tapestry. “This is the the only image we have of the Holy Flame,” he begins, laying the scrap […]

Raiders of the Vistula – Pt. 1

Alongside lie her two sister ships, the Grünenveldt, its hull a dark green, and the Edelweiss, with a bright white hull. […]

Going to the Chapel – AAR

As I said earlier, we should do an after action review (AAR) of our first combat scenario. What works, what doesn’t, what can we improved, etc. I am open to any and all criticism regarding this game and my primary concern is making this as enjoyable as possible for everyone. To get things rolling, […]

Going to the Chapel – Coda

As the panicked crowd surges around them, Suez and Lucky struggle for the door. Suez almost goes down as a family stampedes in unison, but Lucky is there to keep him on his feet and the two finally manage to get out of the building in front of the majority of the congregation. Inside […]

Going to the Chapel Pt. 4

In the Church: Lucky quickly fires a round into the SS soldier readying his weapon, leaving him shaken, but standing. Fortunately Suez is there to follow up and finish the job. The two men then push into the crowd towards the nearest exit, leaving behind a solitary SS soldier. By the time he clears […]

Going to the Chapel Pt. 3

In the Church: A man jumps up and grabs one of the coats, beating at the flames in an attempt at extinguishing the fire. Instead he only fans the flames and the pile of coats ignites. The flames and smoke are now visible in the southern end of the church for all to see. […]
