The End Times: Fall of Nuln

Humanity is on its knees, and the Gods walk with us. Chaos has swept down from the north, and the time of ascendancy has come, the Verminlords themselves leading the armies of the Horned rats Chosen people. Thanquol – the greatest of the Grey Seers – has lead an attack on Nuln, and attack that could finish off the crippled Empire for good. However, rumours are ablaze in the army that other forces could soon be sending reinforcements to the struggling city, meaning that a small force of Skaven could possibly determine the future of the empire itself.


Introduction

Set in Nuln during the end days, you will play as a specialist Skaven commander, under the employ of the ‘Paymaster General’ (a member of the war council), and shall be tasked with taking a neighbouring town to Nuln, and then secure it to hold off a possible flank attack from reinforcing armies.

You will be rewarded for your victories, and punished for your defeats. Sometimes you may have to work together to achieve a common goal, but other times, betraying your fellow Skaven may be far more beneficial.

Furthermore, upon signing up, you will be assigned a small group of troops whom you will be assumed to 'have brought with you'. This group can die, or grow depending on what you achieve in the game.

NPCs

Feskitt Goldklaww - Tradelord of Two-Bit - Paymaster General
Resting atop the social pyramid of the settlement of 'Two-Bit', Feskitt is the wealthiest Skaven in the entire area, controlling the supply chain of the Skaven Army. everything bought or sold in the area goes through Feskitt, which is why he has been placed in charge of paying the hired blades and specialist troops attached to the armies.

Verminlord Arskittar the Maleficent
A highly mysterious character, who bears all the powers of any other Verminlord, Arskittar resides in a burrow deep within the settlement of Two-Bit, and occasionally bestows favor upon those he finds worthy. His true aims are unknown, but for now he appears to be helpful.

Gazzik Griff - Mogul of Gazlukk - Goblin Warlord
Located near the city lies the undercity of Gazlukk. A vast sprawling settlement, lorded over by the Goblin Mogul Gazzik, the city dominates a huge network of underground caverns, and is built to hang between the various caves and outlets. Gazzik has formed an agreement with the Bloodfist Ogre Clan, as well as numerous Orc Tribes in the area and has his eyes on the town of Two-Bit. Merciless, and treacherous, the Goblin is not to be trusted.

I guess this is the end of everything we've ever Nuln (I'm sorry :P )

Regarding sign-ups, does preferred unit refer to our own character, or a preferred composition for their underlings?

It refers to the unit you would prefer to command, be that a doomwheel, skaven slaves etc.

And, for that joke, you must go and sit in the corner for the next five minutes :P

Username: Ratty Gnawtail

Charatter Name: Parson Nithineak, Plague Parson of the sect of Screaming Exploding Eye Rot (SEER for short.)

Clan: Pestilens

Preferred Unit: Flying plague Rogres with large ratling guns Loyal Plague Monks, Censer Bearers, Aspiring Plague Monks (Slaves).

Bio: For all his (fairly short) life, Parson Nithineak believed that his study on perfecting the so-called "Screaming Exploding Eye Rot" disease was a highly respected venture that would propel him highly in the eyes of the Plague Lords of Pestilens. In reality most Plague Priests thought the study a waste of time and trivial in comparison to the more perfected red pox, black death, and breeder's knee. Indeed, when Pestilens invaded Lustria with pretty much all their clan strength, Nithineak and his followers were either forgotten or ignored. Unwilling to believe that Clan Pestilens would think so little of him and his work, Nithineak decided that it was both a test of his piety and proof that his work was more important for countering the forces of the Old World. After sending one of his many messages of gratification to Plague Overlord Nurglitch XIII (which was duly ignored), Nithineak turned his gaze to Nuln. Here would be the testing ground for his new strain of SEER and glory in the eyes of Clan Pestilens.

all of the ferociousness of the Rat Ogres but with more destructive weaponry(teeth and claws just don't cut it anymore) . After month of backstabbing co-workers, shooting lightning at others and general ass-kissing to his superiors he got a place in the JORSDSF . Working side by side with both his clan's main engineer Ikit Claw, and with clan Moulder's master breeder Throt he has gained much knowledge both about the mechanical aspect of being an engineer and the mutation aspect of being a breeder. many month have passed, months of hard work and grueling hours he has gained "some" trust from Ikit Claw and was sent to prove that Storm Fiends can actually work,(and not just be regular Rat Ogres with weapons they can't use)if he succeeds he will be promoted to 2nd Engineer(the Lt. to the Chief Engineer) and will be granted a unit of Storm Fiends as a token for his good work and accomplishment on the project.

Username: Vard Poisonfang

Charatter Name: Assassin T'karakth

Clan: Eshin

Unit(s): Two Claws of Gutter runners, one claw of wind runners (better gutter runners. Remove these if you like.)

Bio: T'karakth had never been someone. He had always wanted to be someone, to be respected by the other assassins. A fairly average skaven, he was a good assassin, but not anywhere near the league of the deathmasters. When the opportunity to invade Nuln had arisen, T'karakth's black eyes had glittered, and he had immediately personally requested of the nightlord that he was sent. Here, finally, was his opportunity to be noticed!
Rodents of unusual size? I don't think they exist.

Username : Mathusala0 (everyone calls me Math)

Character name : Warlock Nicodemus Whitecoat

Clan: Skryre

Preferred Unit: Jezzails/warp lightning cannon, and his apprentice warlock Kris-Kris Zingfur

Biography:
Nicodemus has a long history of technical feats based on others works. Having made a Jezzail that shoots almost a hundred extra claws (though far more prone to misfiring) he established himself not as an inventor, but as an improver. His own Overcharged warp power accumulator combined with his upgraded energy condenser are based off of older Clan Skryre tech yet harvest and expel far more energy than the standard condensers. Unfortunately overuse of the device combined with small leaks in it's casing resulted in Nicodemus' once brown fur being bleached white, making him an obvious target to opposing snipers and rival assassins. Currently, with his apprentice Kris-Kris (known as Zingfur for the amount of times his master had used him to test his experiments) are attempting to further magnify the devastating powers of warp-lightning cannons, hoping to fuse the warp reactor with a larger version of the warp energy power accumulator. As a side project he is working on a portable energy field attached to a protective metal rigging, due to the last assassination forcing him to replace one of his eyes with an optic one.

That would be fine, due to Rictus having high numbers of stormvermin.

Everyone else, added :)
