Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team

Colonel Kutuzov's Rangers, a light infantry regiment in Count Xuvorov's personal army, have been detached on covert missions behind enemy lines for some time now. Currently, several companies of the 3rd battalion are operating in the blasted ruins of an industrial district in the city of St. Basilovsk. A squad is performing reconnaissance, marching in tight formation with conscripts to the front, as per regulations. As everyone knows, the best way to find the enemy is to make yourself as conspicuous as possible so the enemy finds you. Luckily, the patrolling squad is about to discover some very useful information concerning enemy dispositions.

Warhammer Quest Silver Tower - Trial of Chamon

The wight king now carries the fragment of Hysh. Having completed their first trial, the unlikely companions search for the next piece of the fragment. Byron Manfred ponders how he will separate himself and the wight king from the Tzeentchian sorcerer lord so they won't have to share their prize with the chaos worshiper. His scheming proves unnecessary however, as the sorcerer simply disappears one day, as abruptly as he had appeared to them in the first place. Byron wonders if the Tzeentchian sorcerer's appearance was all part of some unknowable scheme by the duplicitous followers of the changer of ways from the very beginning.

Nevertheless, Byron looks to recruit another unsuspecting adventurer he can use to help him acquire another fragment of the gaunt summoner's amulet. He eventually meets an aloof mistweaver saih. Byron has no idea what a mistweaver saih is, but is impressed by her mystical powers and convinces her to join him and the wight king in their search. The mistweaver hopes to learn more about the silver tower from her new companions, seeing that they have found a fragment of the amulet already. Together, they set out in search of their next trial.

Warhammer Quest Silver Tower - Trial of Hysh

Byron Manfred wandered the silver tower for what seemed like many ages before attempting another of the tower's trials. He knew he could not rely on the companions he had been adventuring with, and was unsure how to proceed. He left behind his initial companions, making many attempts to find suitable partners in his quest. These all ended in disappointment, and he explored and pondered for a very long time. In his wanderings, he eventually lost the fragments he had acquired and the powerful skills the tower had granted him as rewards for his deeds. After all his fighting and exploring, his epic battles won against all odds, he was essentially back where he began, no closer to his goal that when he had first set foot in the accursed silver tower.

One fateful day, while wandering the labyrinthine passageways of the silver tower, Byron encountered an ancient wight king. Byron though the wight king would be an idea companion. Byron was confident that he could, if necessary, use his advanced necromantic powers to influence the undead warrior into doing his bidding. The wight king had also been wandering for ages, and needed some guidance. So the two joined forces. Byron explained some of what he knew about the fragments of power the would need to collect, and they set off together in search of them.

Shortly thereafter, a Tzeentchian sorcerer lord appeared to them, offering to help them. The sorcerer claimed to know exactly where they could find a piece of the amulet, which was of course being sought by all the silver towers prisoners. Byron was suspicious of the convenient appearance of the sorcerer who happened to worship the being who created the tower in the first place. Was the sudden and convenient appearance of the sorcerer merely luck? Could it be Destiny? Or were they experiencing the sinister machinations of Tzeentch? Byron did not know, but to get his quest back on track after all this time, he was willing to risk it.
