The Witch Hunter…. has deserted our party.
Tobias has betrayed us…
ABANDON THE TOWER! FLEE!! FLEE FOR YOUR LIVES!
With all they had left, the Altdorf Band fled down the circular stair way and through the two armies in disarray. “RUN!!! FLEE!!!” could be heard through the night as they escaped into the darkness, they would come to run all night from the truth of terror they just witnessed
But how did it come to this?
Daughters of Mercy
It was noon, and the Altdorf band headed out for the second scouting mission. Here they reached a tower, now used as shrine for Shallya. It appeared the initiates had the plague and urged the party to go away. But Altdorf Band trusted their instincts and investigated. It seemed the priesthood were kept hostage by marauders within.
With a cunning plan, the band hid, and managed to surprise the Skaeling marauders. The situation turned to a hostage problem, but with skill and cunning the party managed to trick the Maruders to give up the priestesses in turn for gold. And then they killed the marauders as they tried to flee.
The party manage to convince Zirge to take the smarter approach in dealing with a barricaded position up ahead. The party joins in to flank the barricade, and they deal great casualties to the marauders.
Next day the party encounter a lone marauder who seemingly wish to give up fighting and give up his friends position in a nearby valley.
The party cunningly track around the valley and discover marauders waiting in ambush. The decide not to attack by just report the whole thing back at the army (Shallya be praised)
The party also discover some raided farms in their evening watch. Farmers, women and children all murdered.
Tensions Rise as the report back in the evening Hirsh and Ziege has an argument about tactics, the argument turns violent and in the end Zierge draws his sword and stabs Hirsh through the chest. A challenge is issued by Ziegfried von Königsberg but the party steps in between and prevents further bloodshed (Shallya be praised)
The attack is launched against the marauder position.
The Altdorf Band commands the left flank successfully and in their attack they manage to slay Tuula Bloodhair, one of the Marauder champions causing their left flank to flee.
The party then persue Ziege into the tower and find him in a dual against Olaf Bloodhound.
When all seems dire, the witch hunter does help Ziege to recover his weapon and in the end Olaf is killed.
Tobias Maxemilion Folkvanger Throws himself for the spear, and as he grabs it, then he and his party is locked in a battle of will against the ancient khone demon S’iba’aht. Tobias must now fight for his very soul.
With arguments back and forth why Tobias is already a follower of Khorne or not, Tobias and the party soon starts to run out of deeds of Peace, Mercy and Restraint, where as S’iba’aht has a whole arsenal of arguments based on their trail of destruction and slaughter since they arrived in Neues Emskrank.
Finally the witch hunter breaks and embrace his union with Khorne. He raise the spear high and declares a new war towards north to once and for all destroy the enemies of the empire. With a new glowing mark of khorne in his forehead, both mercenaries and marauders pledge their support to this strong and powerful leader.
Ziegfried von Königsberg immediately issues a challenge to Tobias, but as the rest of his party flees. Ziegfried change his mind and follow his friends as fast as possible!!
