We can organise something if we just stick our heads together.

The first thing we should probably do is a roll call.
Then we can come up with a few interesting goals for everyone.

An example of our goals could be the plundering of leopoldhaus and the temple of the fallen. In leopoldhaus we can find some slaves, money and other trinkets. In the temple of the fallen we might find some magic items.

ps. I also suggest you edit the topic title so that people can easily see that this thread is about the northern Europe battlezone.

***

Fighters in Northern Europe:
Artein
Morvai
Darknir Helgar

please copy the list in your post.

Sounds like there's something afoot in those hills. Maybe you could base your fluff around an investigation?

We could check the Mine and look for some clues there, but since the Crown "left" the Mine I'm not sure if it's worth it....

I am more interested in Leopoldhaus and the temple of the fallen. The temple can be an interesting place to search for magic items and Leopoldhaus is a nice place to rob some gold and get some slaves.
The ruines of Juttersdorf might also be a place worth checking. I heard ruined towns house many a wild creature. There might be something of interest there for a beastmaster.

The shade Force (as talked about in a different thread) should ofcourse start there search for the crown in the mine.

Daeron (I will use a different name for my general in the campaign)

Count me in! I have yet to examine in detail the terrain and possible objectives for the campaign but I am in full preparation of an army for the campaign. I am game for the whole deal and would love to help a hand in:
- battles
- fluff
- pictures
- artwork (I'm limited in this department)
- organisation
Though I think Dnet should be our homeground I have some tools/webspace and development time handy for specific needs, depending on the level of commitment and organization you guys fancy.

welcome aboard Daeron.

I figured it would be handy if we knew who is loyal to Malekith and who is not. This would play a mayor part in the fluff, after all House Darkwater is on a renegade-hunt.

I for one am a loyalist.

Storywise, my House originates from a commander following Khaine and loyal to Malekith. In a sense: Khaine was the path and Malekith showed the way. While very loyal to Malekith, I consider myself more a fanatic of Khaine ;)
I live to sacrifice blood, do honorable combat and great deeds in Khaine's name. I would sacrifce my own blood and body on his altar ere I stray from that path.

Would you guys prefer to reflect the fluff in army lists or keep fluff mainly for the story/reports?

It's Draknir. Or just Drak, if you want.

But I'm in. My Black Ark, Palace of Everlasting Torment is ready to set sail! I'm a loyalist, not a renegade, but nor am I a fanatic- All I want to do is to pillage and plunder and return to Naggaroth with as many valuables as I can catch. I hope there won't be any competition between me and Lord Darkwater, so it'd be better to sail on the same side.

Now then, as for the goals, I am for example heading to Temple of the Fallen in hope of something shiny. There will propably be a battle report or few about my raids, and I would be glad to add my part to the story. (Fluff and artwork)

That’s entirely up to you. I Have based my armylist on my fluff, but that’s just my personal taste.

sorry draknir, my bad.

***

Now then, we already have 3 out of 5 players in favour of raiding the temple of the fallen. I suggest we make this one of our prime goals.

what do we do for minor goals?
Raiding the ruines of juttersdorf for beasts?
Raiding the unnamed town for slaves?
Raiding Leopoldhaus for gold and slaves?
Something else?

Loyalist, unquestioning.

As for minor goals, I'd say raid the Empire till no one dares living within 10 miles from the coastline.

I vote also for Leopoldhaus (did you mention "gold"?)

Hey, there's gotta be more Northerners in here! Calling Finns, kheirakh and Arcturus, do you read me? Anyone else?

Most of them will probably drop in around the start of the campaign. But around then all important decisions have already been made. So, sucks to be late :lol:

Myself I have no real opinion what to go for so far. I do not have the Nemesis Crown Campaign booklet which came together with a white dwarf issue a while back since I am just getting back into warhammer again. Can the booklet be found anywhere else?

Welcome aboard Ranieth.
Just a quick fluff question, is your character loyal to Malekith or is he/she a renegade?

the campaign booklet can be foudn here:

Ranieth would be like most of the druchii I assume, definately loyal to Malekith but not really fanatical. I had him be a renegade some time ago, but I've scrapped that idea since then.

Thanks for the link :)

4 - The Howling Heights

- The possibility to find the crown is the greatest there so that is an important goal but also there is a strong Undead danger we must stop.

- Base - Temple of the Fallen - ancient tomb we must protect.
- Goal - Mandredsfeld - should Undead take control of it consequences would be dire


It seems that our hated kin has decided that they want to establish their base in our raiding site. Although others might not agree with me, I think this is a good thing. Now we can raid the tomb and kill asur all in one.
And it gets even better. Over at Da Warpath I found out that the greenskins want to take the goblin lair and from there conquer the rest of the land. We can lure them towards the Temple of the Fallen and just ride the green tide all over the asur. Just as the fluff alliance said.

So what do you think?

While I don't think we should put too much trust in barbarian greenskins who will want to fight anyone, anywhere, anytime it sounds like a plan. However, it does mean we need to be more alert than we are already, I don't feel like losing the territory just because a few of their warbosses suddenly look to the other side and think "oh my gork, more elves!" and start charging our troops.

Well I guess we simply have to bash some sense into them then. :lol:
I think if we can just use them for the mean assault while we flank charge the HE we could have a great first strike. As soon as we win ground or have conquered the place we can send the orcs off towards some other place. After all the less they are around the less a chance that they go ballistic on us.

Does anyone has a good idea how the Chaos Dwarfs can help us with taking the temple and keeping the temple?

Uhm, well, we could kill 'em and use 'em for walls, sort of like the spartans did in 300...?

Better use Orcs then. Making a wall out of dwarfs can take a while. :lol:

As I hear, the Chaos Dwarfs have a habit of controlling greenskins. Perhaps they can be used as some kind of buffer?
