[After a bit of a hiatus (due to the GM moving), the game resumes!]
The players continue their movement around Ubersreik. They’ve been trying to glean some information with little significant success. This has led them to conclude they must consult with the Temple of Sigmar and (potentially) the residents of Magnus’ Tower to learn ways to hunt down and root out the cult leader that fled from the hunting lodge.
After an uneventful day, the apothecary decided he wanted to learn more about how the narcotic-like poison they’d been infected with at the hunting lodge worked and mixed some of the salvaged powder into his tea. He thinks he’s figured out what part of the taste stands out from untainted tea, but he’s still not quite up to the task of shrugging off the effects.
The trio then started to head back to their lodgings unaware of the figure that followed them.
Once back at the lodgings, the three went to their respective rooms. Eventually, though, Gorfrey decided he needed to get out for a bit of a jaunt. As he headed to the Artisans Quarter, the same figure followed him. HOwever, this time, Taya noticed the figure and decided fair was fair and followed as well.
Gorfrey managed to find the house of ill repute he’d been seeking and, after parting with some silver, headed in. The figure stayed in the shadows waiting for his eventual exit.
Taya, managing to slip up close with the eerie grace of the wood elves, calmly tapped the figure on the shoulder and received a response of “Please don’t hurt me!” After a few moments of conversation, Taya decided she should take the figure, a human female, to go talk to the boss, Gorfrey. However, they were stopped by the same person that allowed Gorfrey to enter the building.
Reconsidering the idea, despite the bouncer’s offer to let them both in for the price of one, Taya marched the female back to their lodgings where she introduced her to Bastian. AFter more discussion, the three headed indoors where the female, whose name they learned was Brigitte, was allowed to sleep under Taya’s watchful eye until Gorfrey’s return.
As the sun came up the next morning, Gorfrey, with a spring in his step, returned to the lodging and he spoke with Bastian about Brigitte. Eventually all four of them spoke together and it was decided that Brigitte would join them. Taya was tasked with acquiring a suitable blade for Brigitte’s use and showing her a bit of how to defend herself.
Quote of the session:
“She’s a thief.”
“That could be useful.”
“Why does everyone keep saying that?”
