WFRP Empire Campaign Sessions 18-20: Stuff Happens

Sessions 18-20 are a bit fuzzy in my mind due to bad Google Hangout audio, missing a session, and just being generally sleep-deprived.  That said, here is a summary, parts of which may have only happened in my mind:

Last time, our heroes were seeking the necromancer Italka. We had reason to believe she was tracking a large piece of warpstone that had fallen from the sky 100? years ago and been tracked down and acquired by the world's most evil astronomer(think the Anti-Carl Sagan).

not just another pretty face
We followed her convoy to the ends of the earth, fought ghosts and Skaven in a chaos fever dream, and eventually caught up to her and her little Evil convoy.  Or rather, we walked into their ambush. But, after a hard fought battle blah blah blah...

Once defeated she revealed her secrets(her chaos spell seems to have wiped it from my memory though) and we were getting along just fine. Then she brought us into a little Faustian pact that neither of us would do harm to the other for a year and a day. And that kids is what we call "Foreshadowing"...


Then we went to some little dirt-hole of a town next to evil Castle Von Wittgenstein.  Everyone there is slowly turning into mutants and the crops are all dead or mutated. We visited the abandoned Temple, and it's gimpy subterranean denizens, and Germanic Jesus Sigmar Himself ordered us to deal the powers of Chaos a good swift kick in the nuts a mortal blow from him. One of the Elves or Dwarves got a holy sword(I couldn't tell due to choppy audio) and our herbalist poisoned this lady's baby just because it was turning into a spider, proving once again that Dwarves will use any excuse to spill Human blood.




Also there were these castle guards patrolling or something...then the town Doctor invited us for dinner and he was clean and had a nice house so it was clear he was, like, SUPER EVIL. Seigwart tried looking for evidence of his evilness while the party was waiting for dinner, but after pocketing anything gold and reading all his private correspondences, it seems like the Doctor really IS trying to help the locals. Though he is buddy-buddy with some Lady in Castle Wittgenstein(and he invited us into his house) so apparently he isn't a very good judge of character...

So the party finally went to eat with the doctor and our herbalist immediately noticed that all the food reeked of sleeping potion. Seigwart excused himself from the table and peeked out the window noticing large numbers of castle guards converging outside. He ducked downstairs to the cellar, hoping to find a subterranean tunnel out of here! And with that, I'll have to leave you in suspense till next time...


...and the map shows there is one. So much for suspense. I swear I didn't actually look at the map until now...
