I rolled up my character using the Quick Character Generation page in the rulebook.
Here's what I ended up with...
|Katla Bjornstad, badass pseudo-Nordic sea reaver|
To kick this off I figured I'd start with a Wilderness adventure. This should lead to some decent adventure seeds to move on to.
Journal entries will be written in first person and any game stuff will be in italics.
Mid-Fall 17, 307 AL
A close friend of mine, Kirsa Frey, has asked me to aid her in locating an ancient ruins just across the border into the Westmark. It will be a dangerous journey but if we find this place maybe we can both make a life for ourselves. We leave in the morning.
At dawn we left Englafeld(0801). The weather is not favorable but should not cause to much of a problem. We made about 20 or so miles today (in hex 0503) and the day was rather uneventful. Tomorrow we should be nearing the ruins.
Katla eats a ration, six left.
The rain from the previous night must have gotten to me as I have woken feeling feverish. We have decided to set up camp(0505) until the fever passes. I wouldn't want to make it worse.
Katla eats a ration, five left.
Shortly after packing up camp this morning we were attacked by what looked like the corpse of an Eirengarder soldier. It got the jump on us.
|Possessed corpse of a fallen soldier|
She swung her greatsword down on me and knocked me off balance and left me winded(2 damage).
I unsheathed my battle-axe and screamed at Kirsa to hide.
Having not yet regained my footing, I missed the corpse with my axe.
Given a moment to collect myself I deflected the next swing from my foe.
Gathering all my strength I swung my axe into the neck of the undead creature and it fell for good(1 damage).
We decide to burn the corpse for good measure.
Time to clean my wounds(recover 2 hp).
We have begun exploring the mountains(0506) and Kirsa believes we are getting close.
Katla eats a ration, four left.
After a couple hours of searching a narrow mountain pass we found a cave(0506). This must lead to the ancient site Kirsa has spoke of. We decide to set up camp, do some hunting to gather rations. Tomorrow we will enter the cave.
Katla hunts for the rest of the day and gathers 2 days worth of rations.
She eats a ration, six left.

So it's about 2am now and I'm falling asleep at the keyboard...
In my experience the first session of a wilderness adventure in Scarlet Heroes goes pretty slow until you start to run into NPC's and different locations and features get discovered.
I was planning on this being a shorter post since I was basically just going from point A to point B but in the next one I will hopefully explore the entirety of that cave. Should be a good length post.
If anyone reading this wants me to detail more of the actual die rolls that go into the game let me know and I'll include that stuff in future posts.
