Confronted with Golphus Drappen and his henchmen, the Altdorf Band resist arrest. After killing Witch Hunter Drappen and one of his men, the rest of his crew leg it.
Gerhart Brickle goes out for the night buy some weirdroot and pay to have some lad take him from behind in a most gay sidetrack of the adventure.
The Altdorf Band reason that they should prepare for the journey to Ruhrhoff. Their first stop at a Cartographer. He let them browse his maps and they discover Ruhrhoff to be a 350 mile journey towards north east. Through the Darkwald forrest.
At a price of 2 gold for the map, they steal the map instead. Alas, Gerhart Brickle never was very subtle and they are caught. The guards are called, and they chase the band through the streets. Gerhart loose his breath and is caught and put in the Dock Watch Station.
The band finally plan a jail-break…. or rather a full assult on the watch station. They kill Sgt. Johnson and his 6 men of the watch, while Lorenz Gasbard entertain a large crowd of people out front. The band sets fire on the station and drags their two unconcious people from the station.
The band finally escape Altdorf by the docks in a row boat, they dodge some cross bow bolts but make it into the night.
Their first journey through the forrest is interrupted by a group of Dark Elf scouts. Gromnir manage to defend the party, and the scouts leave the insane slayer to his not wishing to risk their mission.
On the third morning the party is awake and feeling the bite of hunger as the crew on a few roots. A long journey through the Darkwald lies before them, and with no preperation, guide, horses, food or water the weight of the challenge soon dawn in their minds.
