The Adventurers Anthology


By Glenn Allan

You’ve defeated Mortibris and vanquished Ba’el. You’ve survived the Abyss and the Black Fortress,
faced the greenskin horde in the Forest of Galahir and slain the mighty Karrathor. Did you think
your adventures were over?

Welcome to The Adventurers Anthology. This expansion takes your favourite adventures and gives
them a fresh new make over, adding new heroes, villains, special rules and objectives as you
adventure through familiar paths in an all new light. Whether it’s hunting down a wicked vampire
or venturing deep into an ancient lich’s keep, there are hours of fun adventuring ahead of you.

It also serves as an example of how you could adapt existing adventures for your own games and
heroes.

So don your trusty armour and draw your keenest blade, adventurer, for fame and glory await you
once more!

Adapted Adventures
When using adapted adventures unless stated otherwise, all special rules, both for the
individual adventure and the campaign as a whole are used as are any items and spells
characters might have, contents of chests, strengths of doors and chests, Overlord
actions, command cards and character positions. Each adapted adventure will tell you
what to replace or add.

Aftermath

Dregcret arrived back at camp, followed by three warbosses from nearby clans. He had told them just how
powerful his mawbeast was, and they had been impressed by the devastation it’d caused to the elven
scouts, but Dredcret knew that only by seeing the beast would they be truly impressed.
The wide smug smile that had been plastered over the goblins face slowly dropped as he saw the massive
heap that was once his prized mawbeast. He prodded it, but the creature didn’t budge.

He turned slowly to his guests, gulping nervously as he looked up to see three furious orcs staring down
at him.
Grabbing Dredcret by the collar one of the orcs pulled him off his feet. “This is the mighty beast you’ve
dragged us all here to see huh? Do you wanna see what happens when our times wasted?”
Dregcret quickly closed his eyes, and hoped whatever his fate would be, would be quick.

The adventurers stood in the empty crypt, one in each corner of the room, gold, jewels and other
valuables filling their hands, pockets and anywhere else they could keep the. Each tried to assess the
gathered wealth of the others.

“I guess we better get back to the Adventurers Rest then.” Danor said, keeping his back firmly to the wall.
“After you.” Rordin nodded his head back to Danor.
The wizard turned to Madriga “Ladies first.” But she shook her head.
“Oh no, by all means, you go first.”
“Rordin?” Danor looked across the crypt to the dwarf who was clutching onto a pile of gold. “Not on your
life!” The dwarf spat.
Each adventurer kept their back to the wall, occasional looking at the way out trying to figure how best to
escape while keeping their eye on their companions.

The Crown of Razvan


Gaining the nickname “The Butcher” after the atrocities that he caused in his homeland of
Stryania, Enric the vampire had marched from minor kingdom to minor kingdom, destroying all in
his path. It had been a long siege, but King Razvan hadn’t allowed the vampire to breach his castle
so easily. He had been the last king in the vampire’s campaign, and he made sure the vampire had
lost much. But against the undead, their ranks never seemed to end.

Finally, as King Razvan sat in his empty thrown room, he heard the screams and clashes of battle
outside his door. He looked down, knowing it would soon be over. And as he heard the door burst
open, wood splintering from the force, he knew the time had come.

After the battle, Enric would attempt to gain more power by offering his services as a savage
warrior to those who would pay him in gold, rare artefacts and favour. He used necromantic magic
to bind Razvan’s soul to his former crown, which Enric kept close to him, in a cruel jest to keep
the last king to defy him as a ghostly slave.

Now the last living relative of King Razvan has put a plea out to any hero brave enough. To
retrieve the crown, and free King Razvan from his undead slavery, so he can finally rest in peace.

Aftermath

Enric hissed in pain as Rordin’s hammer slammed into his shoulder. The vampire tried to dodge
the dwarf’s next blow but found himself having to dodge yet again from a pistol shot from Gunn.
Writhing in pain, he began to hover towards the crypts ceiling trying to find a way to escape.

Ravenna pointed her staff at his and unleashed a gust of wind that sent the vampire slamming into
the wall behind him.

“Damn you all to the abyss!” Enric screamed as he used all of his power. His body slowly became
transparent as he began to take a smoke like form.

“Quick, he’s escaping!” Yelled Ravenna.

Before the vampire became completely incorporeal, Helkan lunged a dagger at him. It cut through a
leather strap and lodged into his armour. Then the vampire disappeared, leaving only black smoke
where he once was.

“Damn it! He’s gone!” Gunn kicked something at his feet in anger that he had thought was rubble,
but as it hit the wall, a clattering of metal rang around the crypt. “Huh?” The dwarf engineer
looked down to see something sparkling.

Helkan reached down, and picked up the leather strap that he had cut off Enric before he vanished.
Attached to it hung a battered and well used crown. He lifted it up to show the party. “I think old
Razvan can finally rest.”

Special Rules – Boulders. The players


should take turns placing 4 Weak Point
markers anywhere on the board. This
should be equally spread between heroes
and the Overlord. The markers represent
boulders which can be pushed to crush all
that stand in their way. Any model (hero
or minion with the exception of
Mawbeasts) can push a boulder when they
are adjacent to one, using an action. The
player pushing one must roll a D6, the
result shows how many squares the
boulder will roll. Any model in the
boulders path with suffer a 5 Combat Dice
attack. If a boulders final position is on
top of a model, they suffer a 6 Combat
Dice attack and the attack gains the Slam
ability. Boulders will only roll in a
straight line, directly opposite from the
pushing models position. Boulders occupy
a square and block Line of Sight and
movements through it. If a boulder ever
moves past a tile edge, it is removed from
the game. If a model ever finds themselves
onto of a boulder from a Slam effect or any
other reason, they are assumed to be on top
of it, and the boulder cannot be moved while
it is stood on.

Aftermath

The greenskins bodies lay mangled and broken across the riverbank in the same fashion that they
had left their victims. But even the fiercest tide couldn’t wash the blood clean from this scene of
horror.

The riverbank was no longer a place for fun and relaxation. To the water folk, it now felt like the
dry lands of Mantica, war torn by those above the surface who would rip the world to pieces. No
one would see schools of Placoderms playing in the river, or Naiads lounging on huge lily pads
anymore, but the bodies of the slain greenskins would serve as a remainder of the oceans wrath.

Damn you and your interference! I spent years preparing that ritual and you’ve ruined
everything!” Tuxaura spat, holding her wounds as the hostages ran for the exit. The occasional
sound of magical energy still crackling around the chamber from her attempted ritual.
“You’re too late. The ritual has begun, all you’ve done is delay the inevitable. I will soon be
Immortal and I’ll never die. Then you’ll pay for this!” The elf moved her hand from her bleeding
wound, summoning purple necromantic flames into her palms.

Suddenly with a thud she dropped backwards in a heap from one of Madriga’s arrows that was
now imbedded in her heart. “She should have known, no one is immortal.” Madriga said, stepping
over Tuxaura’s twitching body.
