Chapter Story Edit
The crackling of handgun fire filled the air as the last of the fleeing bandits disappeared behind a rocky outcropping.
Skalfson sniffed at the air. The reek of the distant Marshes of Madness mingled with the scent of the thieves' fear. Later, his trusted band would conduct a raid of their own, reclaiming supplies stolen by the thieves from Dwarf wagons that traveled this vitally important road.
It was the security of the road that had brought Skalfson here. A Ranger Captain of great fame, he was also one of General Ironmane's most trusted kinsmen. Already, his band had recovered almost all of the supplies the robbers had taken.
Skalfson squinted and peered into the distance. He could just make out the train tracks that rose up from out of the ground less than a league from the camp. The Dwarfs had made good progress getting the network of tracks that ran throughout Ekrund back in working order, but here in Mount Bloodhorn, there was still much to do. Any day now, a work crew would arrive to begin repairs on this stretch of track, and the Dwarfs would have yet another railroad along which the trains carrying ore could run.
The vultures were the least threatening of the creatures in this part of the Dragonback Mountains. Huge, carnivorous lizards and long-tusked boars lurked among the rocks on all sides of the camp, just waiting for the Dwarfs to lower their guard. A small tribe of greenskins called the Ironclaws occasionally made life interesting for Skalfson and his Rangers, and last, but hardly least, was the army of bandits.
They called themselves Dietrich's Dogs, after their leader, the renowned former mercenary Dietrich Lichtermann. The remnants of a failed Empire expedition through the Dragonbacks, the were cunning and tough in equal measure. Skalfson guessed that their main camp must not be far away, but his duties required that he stay were he was and guard the road.
Chuckling to himself, the Captain reloaded his handgun. There was never a dull moment here at Skalfson's Watch.
Rally Master Edit
Captain Skalfson is a Ranger of considerable skill. A kinsman of General Rordin Ironmane, Skalfson has been tasked with securing the roads that pass through Mount Bloodhorn. From his camp at Dragonbone Pass he oversees operations against both local greenskin tribes and bandits, in an effort to ensure enough supplies will make it to Ekrund so that the Oathbearers can secure the flow of Bitterstone needed by the High King.
