Our session continued in Altdorf. After an altercation between our heroes on what to do with the small boy pierce had captured tensions were high. A clear division had occured within the group and threatened to undermine our heroes unity, with tempers checked our heroes made it to Grettles house and stayed the night. Unfortunately for Dorf and Tyrel they ate some of Grettles cooking, Pierce stood clear knowing full well the dangers of his sister-in-law’s sanitary habits, and our two adventurers caught a severe case of explosive diarrhea.
Unfortunately for Dorf and Tyrel nature called at an extremely innoportune time the next day which lead them to shit their pants in the middle of the Köningplatz infront of dozens of people, after an ego recharge and a new pair of trousers they decided to take a day off to recover from their illness. Pierce, who was completely healthy, spent the day drinking and gambling and narrowly missed a mugging with the help of the city guard.
The next morning the group awoke to find that Dorf had recovered quite well, he was still not cured but most of his symptons were gone, Tyrel on the other hand had soiled his pants yet again and was no better than yesterday.
The group headed to the Friedwang district to talk to the three shipping families involved in the dispute. Hear they met Hahn Golder who was the leader of the Golder bank in Altdorf Hahn answered the parties questions and offered them work through an associate of his named Mario. They also noted that the district was ran by private military, chiefly that of the Golder Bank.
The party then tried the Grellier estate but were ejected by the guards, they did learn that the Grellier Bank was a family business (just like the Golder and the Heye) and that Louis Grellier was the patriach.
Our group then headed to the Heye estate, they learnt that the Heyes were a burgher family and were not nobles and that was met with contempt with the community they live in. They spoke to Thaddeus (the steward) who told them that Kurt Heye was the founder of the bank but wasn’t available for conversation. Thaddeus asked the party to retrieve a necklace which Isolette (the youngest member of the Heye family) dropped down the lavatory.
The crew dropped down into the sewers, while it was depressing work they were being highly paid for the amount of effort required and set out with as much zeal as one could muster when tasked with sifting through human feces, along the way they met a jovial halfling by the name of Maggio Paddins and agreed to assist the party finding the necklace. The group made their way to the generalised location of the necklace but came across some sell swords dumping a body. After a quick scrap they defeated the bandits and discovered that the body was that of Pierce’s missing brother, Hahn Hawthorn who was a key player and part founder of the workers strike at the docks.
Pierce was visibly upset and with a heavy heart lifted the body of his brother on his back, Completely ignoring the filth that covered his brother’s lifeless body. This act of compassion temporarily redeemed Pierce in the eyes of his comrades, particular Dorf who was beginning to think that Pierce was a man without honour.
