Baroness Theodora Margrave opened the door to the lavish black coach, inside soft pillows decorated the seats in soft velvet, the inside illuminated by a two silver oil lamps. The baroness called off her retainers and proposed peace with the Altdorf band, tossing down a sizable pouch full of the silver. The bag hit the street and the contents spilled out over the cobblestones.
In the next moment everything was chaos. Gromnir the slayer, threw himself on the ground, using his both arms to pile up the silver. The near unconcious Gerhart rolled over to grab as much coin as possible, and even the holy Brother Maynard piled in, pushing Gerhart aside to ensure as much coin as possible for the sake of peace. Party tension ran high while Konrad and Lorenz missed out. A heated discussion followed as the Black Coach silently departed. “If you want in on the coin, you gotta sign the contract!”… “But I don’t want to sign, and you already got so much!”… “Give some more to the poor” … another round of violence as Brother Maynard taught the dwarf a few things about collecting charity with the fist.
After having read some passages in Journal 10, the Altdorf Band descide to seek out Justin Oakstream for help.
They find them in the Ogasse District in Altdorf with his Fellow student Sigimund Keppler. The two students seem to be guarded but are soon convinced to help and help the party by reading through the journal. Realizing this is about a powerful necklace and magic beyond their skills, they insist on taking the journal to their master.
Together they make their way through the streets of Altdorf until the Group is attacked by men clad in all Black!
The Black types snatch the journal and makes it to the roofs with Gromnir Groinsplitter in close pursuit!
Meanwhile Dr. Lorenz Gasbard attempt to overpower Justin Oakstream and a fight breaks out until a Black clad magister appears with a scythe and scares Lorenz off. Could it have been Polycromos the Black??
Meanwhile a dangerous chase follows over the rooftops. Gromnir kills at least 3 Black thieves before finally slipping from the roof and injuring his leg griviously. Sophia, a pale girl in Black leather makes it away with the Journal and climbs into a Black Coach waiting further up the streets.
The party barge through numerous private dwellings, knock Down doors and wrestle through a gold tier restaurent establishment. It comes to blows on the streets of Altdorf as the coach men defend their mistress and others join in against her attackers.
Brother Maynard then calls for Peace and calm in his payers, and as if Shallya listened, the coach door opens and Baroness Theodora Margrave does indeed call off her men, instead offering the Altdorf Band a sizable purse of silver.
Baroness Theodora Margrave lets the purse drop to the ground and silver scatters on the street. Members of the Altdorf band here throws themselves over the coins, frantically fighting eachother for every shilling. (And yes, at this point live action fighting takes place, tension goes high, dice are scattered and chairs fall over).
After composing themselves, the Black Coach has left towards East, and the band find themselves surrounded by Golphus Drabben and his six which Hunters!
- You! Stop in Sigmar’s name! You have eluded us long enough!
The party has concluded that the Necklace must be located in Ruhrhoff…. where would that be?
