    Double-posting for visibility - Adelbert knows the rough dates of the Crusades against Araby from his AK(History), plus the Caerfort journal, so he ought to be able to answer Elsa's question. Google "warhammer timeline" if you need dates to sound all scholarly.

    Also I can't remember, where did you guys get that map?

    I don't actually think we have a physical map? I would have assumed such a thing to be beyond our means, like a printed book. That said, i'm not sure how all you foreign PCs know where anything is without one.

    I dont think we have one either? Viggo wouldn't even know how to read a map. He gets about by people pointing in a direction and saying 'it's that way."

    I find it hard to believe we never bought a map, given all the time and money our characters spent over the course of the story.

    Come to think of it, given how rough the terrain is and how much there is in the way of death, i'd be a little surprised if the Reaches were formally mapped at all.

    I think we have to assume we have a basic map with the roads and big towns (Alvarann, Putbad and Savonn) marked out. If needs be maybe we can retcon Sforza as having given it to Elsa.

    Edit: Okay, I could be wrong but according to the Caerfort Journal the sorcerors of Nath destroyed themselves a year before the Battle of El Haikk in 1451 (Imperial calender), so Nath has been ruined for roughly 1070 years.

    I've lost track of the story as we've told Fassbender so far, possibly more so than Ludo has. That said, it's not like I've got a better lie.

    In fairness things could have gone worse. Adelbert was very taken with Beatrix and was hoping to do a little flirting, which given his track record would probably have seen all of us turned into lead...

    Viggo's explanation is better, actually.

    This might turn into a fight. I would suggest we steel ourselves, but she'll do that for us.

    AS far as I'm aware we only have Adelbert's version of events to go against? And he mentioned that Sforza knew about the book? I don't know what Elsa has told her.

    I'm ok for Viggo misinterpretation of Ludo's quick lie to stand! If only for the fun times that could ensue from this pair tying themselves in knots! Oh what tangled webs we weave!

    OK, since Ludo rolled Charm and succeeded, I'm going to give Beatrix an Int test at +20 to see through the fact that Ludo was blatantly lying before Viggo covered his arse.

    (1d100)[99]

    Well, looks like you've bamboozled her enough that she doesn't take offence at being lied to at least. I guess she thinks Ludo mistook Viggo's meaning.

    I'm not even sure that IC Viggo knows why he's not allowed to talk about the Capitano in front of her!

    He's just perceptive enough to know that this witch who turns people into statues when she's upset, is upset about Sforza and that's all the incentive he needs to tell a porky pie!

    Well, I'm sure he could make the equation: Warmongering Tinpot Dictator + Powerful Book of Necromancy = Worst Idea Ever. Seriously, that's like bringing the One Ring to Denethor.

    True but he's rubbish at maths too! His equation looks like this:

    Warmongering Tinpot Dictator + Order to Find Powerful Book of Necromancy + Powerful Book of Necromancy = Gold

    If only he knew the sum of the other two sides!

    Metallurgy puns aside, on the question of the map: you can't assume a goddamned thing in the Navy, not a goddamned thing maps are actually fairly rare and expensive in this period. They take a lot of craftsmanship and painstaking (and in this case fairly dangerous) travel to make, and you can bet there aren't many printing presses in these parts to reproduce them chiefly. If you haven't bought a map then you haven't got a map. You've always been travelling with at least one local in the party and most people here get around without one.

    While IC arguments and recriminations are likely I think we're all a bit worn out to play them out. I'm happy to flash forward to morning, unless everyone else wants to play out the fun.

    Adelbert is actually not that unhappy; he'd prefer to give the book to the undead priestess but denying it for Sforza isn't a bad outcome. He's very much afraid of going to Nath, at least in the near future but the same seems true of everyone else!
