Ausreik is a small mining town of the Empire in the Grey Mountains. [1a]

It was built near Mount Taurig. [1a]

History

It survived the Black Plague abd the subsequent invasion of the Empire by the Skaven, partly due to its isolation but also because it was well protected by strong walls and a militia. [1a]

In 1121 IC [1a] a ragged group of battered pilgrims staggered into the won, their leader ranting about how he had been punished by Sigmar and that the townsfolk should flee or die. The townsfolk quickly discovered that the Skaven who had devestated most of the empire were now coming for them - many packed their belongings, taking the priest advice and fled. [1b]

The ruler of the town, Graf Abernauer clamed the rest of the townsfolk and dispatched a rider to Altdorf to fetch help. He ordered the guards doubled and supplies stockpiled in case they were cut off. [1b] The first relief column was ambushed and the settlement besieged but not attacked, the ratmen infesting it with vermin and burning the main storehouse. [1c]

Finally the Graf gathered the population in the market square around his pride and joy, the dwarf made cannon Bertha and proposed that they sally forth before they were too weak to defend themselves. [1c] Beyond the walls they defeated the Skaven but more were to return later and besiege them once more. [1d]

Yet in their darkest hour, Elector Count Mandred Skavenslayer of Middenheim arrived at the head of a powerful army, driving the Skaven before them. His veteran scouts quickly located the mine-warren and marched on it resulting in the Battle of the Taurig. [1d]

Inhabitants

A frontier town mostly populated by miners, muleteers and trappers it also welcommed pilgrims to the nearby ruins of the Monastery of Sigmar's Ascension. [1a]
