I have a unusual question about WFRP (involving a Tzeentch worshipping Skaven) :)

KasquitKasquit 30 PointsMember, Level2
In the Dragon Slayer book (the Gotrek and Felix series), there is a situation where one of the three Tzeentch worshipping Chaos Warriors who met two Skaven (Thanquol and Lurk) tries to charge them despite the fact that Thanquol had a message from the Council of Thirteen.

The Chaos Warrior suggests to kill the Skaven off the bat (even though there were Chaos/Skaven alliances, not to mention Eshin Assassins being hired by Chaos Lords to do the dirty work) and argues on the basis that they are scum that are not to be trusted (because he fought them once). He also wanted to take the heads of Thanquol and Lurk, and then use them as a warning for the rest of their kind (even though there was a fluff bit somewhere that there are Tzeentch and Nurgle worshipping Skaven). One of the other Chaos Warriors simply tells him to stop it and let the Grey Seer tell what he has.

Now let’s have this situation.

-Tzeentch Chaos Warriors Warband waltzes into a southerner country with the standard Chaos Warriors policies of pillaging and conquering.

-The Champ in charge wants one of the high ranking southerner leaders assassinated, so he hires a Skaven Eshin Assassin (in this case me), and promises a lot of delicious rewards if I get the job done.

-Let’s say that I’m too a Tzeentchian and decide to go un-Skaven-like in this case. I tell him about a situation similar to the one Thanquol and Lurk got and which happened to me in this particular case. I of course put heavy emphasis on the fact that I’m too Tzeentchian and that arse of a Tzeentch Warrior wanted to chop off my head to serve as a warning towards my kin.

-After telling him this I want him to punish the bastard (preferably in a disproportionate way) and in return I’d do three other assassinations for him. I’d even go so far as to pay him for the effort. Or simply to curse him if he’s not part of the warband (no matter if he’s alive or not).

-How would the Chaos Champion react? What would he say?

-What would the Warrior who wanted to behead me say or behave in his defense?

-What would the other Chaos Warrior think of me if I did something like that and how would it develop?

    in that instance they'd either let the guy lop your rat head off or all kill you. you don't make demands of chaos warriors unless you're their patron demon, even if you offer a "Reward".

    besides that, noone that knows of the skaven to any degree would trust them to any degree, and nobody that knows how tzeentch works would trust their followers to any degree.

    here lies skqeech groinstab, he ran fast and died a skaven.
