"You're going back to the forest, and the Skryre war machine nest. Destroy them all, as you did before, but find the rune! If you forget, don't bother coming back at all! Lohner may enjoy his jolly little motivational speeches. I care only about results, so don't mess this up!" Olesya Pimenova

"I hope you like skipping merrily through the forest, because that's where you're going next. I'm sure it'll be fun, but as well as destroying the ratmen doomwheels, be sure to find me that hidden rune. Don't disappoint me. I wouldn't like that, and nor would you." Olesya Pimenova

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

For a last time, the heroes go into an illusion of Ubersreik to find a rune of the Dwarfen Lodestone. This time, the heroes perform a raid through swampy terrain into a Skaven warcamp of Clan Skryre, hidden in the Reikland Forest. Their additional target is to destroy the Skaven war engines (also known as Doomwheels). After destorying the machines, they retreat to a river-side village of Black to escape through a Bridge of Shadows by using a ship as a bridge, while withstanding an aggressive Skaven counterattack.

Rune[edit | edit source]

See the Rune Guide.

Doomwheel Event[edit | edit source]

When the heroes reach the Skaven Encampment, they have to destory three Doomwheels with powder kegs. The kegs lie in a cart in a central hub of the camp, with each branch leading to a Doomwheel. During the event, hordes of Skaven assault the heroes, including Plague Monks. The Doomwheels are also guarded by several Stormvermin.

Finale[edit | edit source]

In order to cross the water to the Bridge of Shadows, the heroes call for a boat by ringing the bell in a small village with a large Inn called the Black Mother. Ringing the bell attracts hordes of Skaven and Rotblood enemies, including Elites and Specials. The heroes have to hold out until the boat arrives, after which they can escape to the Bridge of Shadows.
