[WFRP 2e] Renegade Princeps 50

My PC
Vaervenshyael - Female Elf Assassin (suffering from a Host of Fiends disability and carrying a magical stone linked to gluttony)

My companions
Tankred "Silver Bear" Tenneckermann - Human Artisan/Mercenary/Champion Wilhelm Hechland - Human Pistoleer/Engineer/??? Doctor Johann Wilhelm Woeller - Human Physician
Imultrud - Knight NPC, liaison to Mathilde

(Previous Notes)
The party finally returned to Mathildeburg, the home of Imultrud, and the northern-most ally of Padua-Upon-Avon. Due to limited ration and drink on the trail, Wilhelm and Vaervenshyael were compelled to head straight to the Drunken Donkey tavern for some much needed sustenance.

At the tavern, a barmaid "helpfully" reminded Vaervenshyael that the place offered baths. It seemed weeks on the trail from Barak Varr had left a noticeable stink on the party. Vaervenshyael dismissed the suggestion until she had gotten a suitable dinner.  "And, if I remember correctly, this town was covered in rats when …

Does the party help the dwarves defend the bridge from the oncoming orc contingent? Does the party rush to get as far south as possible before the orcs reach the river? The options are taken out of the party's hand as the orcs arrive while the party discusses options.

The orcs arrive with a couple stone trolls hauling ballistae. Homebrew mass battle rules are initiated.

Vaervenshyael spends the first segment of combat on the edge of battle, trying to deftly take on 1-2 orcs at a time only. This strategy does not work, and she is wounded to almost half her full health total. The Fiend takes over.

The next segment, she skewers goblins, opens the guts of orcs, and cuts down a few members of the head …

Return to Eveningstar

The party returned to Eveningstar from their recent assignment via Arabel. On the way into Eveningstar, Jemma wanted to stop to give young Anna some candy she bought in Arabel. Then it was on to see Lord Tessaril Winter. King Azoun was also with Lord Tessaril, awaiting our return. He was glad the party retrieved his dagger, but would not take it from us. Lord Tessaril did that on our way out. Instead, the King invited us to Suzail for his birthday party! Nina, being a paladin from Suzail, told us it was a very prestigious event and that only the top ranks were invited. The King said the party would be held at Lord Partic Thistle's.

Return to The Keep

The party returned to their keep, Keep Vigilant, to find 3 bugbears had attacked in …

Events as written by the GM:
The knocks wake each of you almost at the same time.

The cock hasn't crowed and it's pitch dark outside your windows. Each of you rouse yourselves from slumber to make out the knock becoming a pounding on your door. Someone curses and its answered a throaty voice of a dwarf to shut up.

"Wake up! You're summoned to the high council of Barrak Varr. Quickly now. Don't keep them waiting! Dress. Collect all your belongings as well!" The message is the same to each of you, if varied only in the gruff or emphasis of the pounding on your door.

Outside your room waits two armed dwarves, one less so than the other, both holding lanterns. You see others at your…

Cat Summoning Tables

As a follow up to my Cat Summoner idea, I compiled this list from the various AD&D 2e Monstrous Manual and Compendiums (Compendia?). "Normal" cats would stick more to the spirit of the idea, but I also included optional monsters with cat parts. The list goes up to level 13, but the Monster Summoning spells only go to level 7, so that's where I stopped. To give you a taste of the rest, the only monster I listed at Level 13 is a Render. I, personally, would consider summoning a Render to either be a final act of life-or-death desperation or an act of Chaotic Evil. Enjoy!
Monster Summoning 1 (Level 3 Spell) Level 1 Cat, Crypt : Normal (Compendium 2) Cat, Small: Domestic Cat, Small: Wild Cat, Winged: Lesser (Compendium 1)
(Optional) Tiger Squirrel
Monster Summoning 2 (Level 4 Spell) Level 2 Cat, Great: Giant Lynx Cat, Winged: Tressym (Compendium 1) (Optional) Feystag (Compendium 1) (Optional) Tabaxi
Monster Summoning 3 (Level 5 Spell) Level 3 Cat, Great: Cheetah Cat, Great: L…

The Amazing Adventures of Jemmabink, the very same adventures that encouraged me to leave the comforts of the Underdark and travel to the World Above, these adventures are no more easy to believe now that I live them side-by-side with the legend Jemmabink herself.

The lock on the iron door would not yield to our key, and we weren't quite ready to force it. We retraced our steps back to the antechamber to try another route. There was a door ajar on the east wall, just the way we left it. Jemmabink and Nina opened the door to a hallway. The hallway had two doors across from each other nearby and another two further on. The second door to the south lined up with the iron door we couldn't open. At its end, the hallway turned south.
When the figh…

Cat Summoner

What is the feasibility/playability of a Summoner who only summoned cats? I bet you could find different strength cats in various monster books to equate to every summoning spell: House cats, lynx, bobcat, cougar, cheetah, jaguar, leopard, lion, tiger, sabertooth, etc.I think it would be fun, but I'm a big cat fan (that is, a fan of cats larger than house cats).
