6 out of 7 dwarves are not Happy

You might not be entirely sure why you agreed to step foot on the experimental gyro-driven balloon-boat in the first place, dubbed the Skyward Nancy by its owner and "inventor" Mad-Mallis, several days past. Maybe it was your urgent errand in combination with Mallis's promises of swift travel over the mountains. Maybe it was because of your debt to a fellow passenger. Regardless, you did and now the remains of the Nancy and much of its cargo lay strewn across the rocky slopes of the hills and forest before you.

Of course you have many options open to you but the first order of business might be survival. Off the beaten path and in strange woods, you can decide to try to locate the main thoroughfare more conservative earth-bound travellers usually take, Axe Bite Pass. It must lie to the south if Mallis adhered to his flight plan. Even on this "well-travelled" route, dangers lurk when Road Wardens are not near, but still it must be safer than the wilds you are currently in. You might also try to find the mountain outpost Mallis had meant to resupply. He didn't mention whose outpost it was. It must be a few days west. Or you can let the fates decide by throwing caution to the wind and doing what you want.

As you gather yourself, recovering from the stress and fatigue of the crash, some reflections from the days past observations pool at the back of your mind, awaiting your consideration and discussion.

On day 3 of the journey, an observant one among you spotted what appeared to be a Skaven scouting party heading back in the direction from whence you came. Through a looking glass you saw it was lead by a large one marked by an eye-patch. Most of them gazed upon you floating in the sky with wonder but One-Eye only had contempt. They disappeared into a cave shortly thereafter.

On day 4, during the night, one of you noticed that Mallis opened the engine compartment of the Skyward Nancy and carefully adjusted something. Later in a rare bout of drunken boasting he claimed that his invention would change the world and make him rich. You remember there was a slight unnatural green glow about it that faded as it became tempered by a pink glow and then disappeared altogether when the compartment was closed. Apparently its secrets were part of how the Skyward Nancy was able to stay in the sky for so long.

These thoughts, as noted before, are at the back of your mind - but it will be dark soon and Mallis is nowhere to be seen.

What do you do?

I glide over to Marx and look at him with hazel-brown eyes.
"Yes, I am alive."

Before you stands a Wood Elf, clad in a close-fitting outfit made out of pelts and hides of various animals in shades of grey, brown and black. He holds a bow in his hand, an axe on his belt and a quiver on his back.

My bow in hand, I flex it, then put a sinew on it.
"And it seems my equipment did too."

I am unclear wether we already introduced ourselves during the flight. If we did, ignore this:
"My name is No-lan."

were there passengers besides ourselves on board? Is it just Mallis that is missing?

Debris is scattered across a wide area. Anyone searching the wreckage should roll an Easy (1d) Observation check for each hour specifically dedicated to the search.

Darkness will descend in approximately 3-4 hours.

You four were the only passengers.

Debris is scattered across a wide area. Anyone searching the wreckage should roll an Easy (1d) Observation check for each hour specifically dedicated to the search. Feel free to move up or down in your stance once to reflect for example being reckless and going farther out from the crash site or being conservative and taking it slow. (I didn't list any bane or chaos star results below - in these cases we'll interpret them as they occur... feel free to make suggestions!)

Darkness will descend in approximately 3-4 hours.

You four were the only passengers.

"Alright then, let's not waste time."

Kartigan begins a furious search of the wreckage looking for anything useful, not paying attention to where he is at in relation to the others.

Looks like we are finding plenty of food and water, though with lots of banes. Maybe have us suffer stress or raise the party tension a couple of notches?

So if I roll my dice pool once, I will have searched for one hour, right?

I never actually rolled dice in wfrp 3 before.
My pool will consist of one die each for Intelligence, plus 1 fortune for my nature bond racial ability since we're in woodland terrain plus one challenge die because the challenge is easy? Do I get an additional die for my observation skill?

I have to say that the rulebooks are terribly laid out and totally confusing... And I have read rulebooks of quite a few different systems.

All of that is correct, but you would also add 1 Yellow Expertise die for having Observation trained. Also, I think that this represents the group as a whole searching for 1 hour together. The successes from all our results are then added together to see what we've found.

being native to woodland terrain, I would be the obvious choice looking for a place to stay the night, right?
Also, I can move silently through the woods so the chance of enemies hearing my approach is lower than if we all go together.


"We still have about 2-3 hours of daylight. Do we continue our search in the debris field (probably going north in the process), go west to the outpost or south to the Axe Bite Pass?

I will scout ahead and try to find shelter for the night."

Well, I don't know what we can do about the outpost, we can't carry the supplies to them. Maybe the pass is a safer bet. Those ratmen we saw the other day do not comfort me.

You find the shard amidst a smoking ruin of gears, cogs, and snapped propeller blades. It at once seems to emit a darkness that clouds its shape and in the next moment a greenish glow making you want to turn away and look at something else.

A noise nearby gets your attention, a bloody Mallis propping himself up against a darkened tree. "I brought this away …. to protect…" A bout of coughing interrupts him. "Enclose it with this and deliver it to… Skobb, at the...." And with that he seemingly expires. Out of his now limp hand drops a small golden cage emitting a faint pink glow. It resembles a miniature bird cage, the clasp broken.

Among his possessions is the flight plan, marked with your progress so far and some other notes. It's probably not a bad guess as to your current location as you've seen him mark on it at least once a day.

Party tension rises 1 as the battered party searches, and rises another 1 at the death of the pilot. You barely got to know him, but his madness had always been balanced by a good nature.

"Mallis said to deliver the shard to someone. I'd guess that he stays at the outpost.
Looking at the map it doesn't seem like too big a detour if we go there first and then to Hochpointe.
We should go there anyway and tell them that supplies are not coming..."


who will carry the cage with the shard?

How much fatigue do you have? It takes more than double your toughness to pass out, so if your toughness is 3 you need 7 fatigue to pass out.

Kartigan will let the priest carry the cage, otherwise he will if no one else wants to.

But on second thought, on I think the dwarf is a bit more suited then I am to... not be affected by the weight. He can take it and I will study from a distance

The cage faintly glows of undulating pink, the rhythm mimicking a slow heartbeat in some ways. The opening of the cage hangs loose, its clasp broken. Inside, the cage is bare.

This might be a good place to reflect on some common knowledge most citizens of the Old World have:

* The gyro-driven balloon boat appeared to use a combination of technology not entirely unknown. Most folks have heard of the single-seat gyro steam-engine flying contraptions dreamed up by the engineering minds of the Dwarfs. Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know there's no such thing as a multi-person flying contraption in the Old World (until the Skyward Nancy). The Nancy didn't appear to have the tell tale signs of a steam engine.
