Delbian Pirates - Session 3
When the bow breaks....

The adventure continued with party members Tyrel and Dorf investigating the scene of the Schnittger murder. Thepair decided to return to Nigel and Theo who were waiting back at the Gretchen household. Nigel was probing Theo about his background, suspecting that Theo was some sort of wanted criminal, Theo managed to deflect his accusations leaving a highly suspicious Nigel to muse over the information Theo gave him.

Dorf and Tyrel returned however it was quite late in the day, the party agreed to travel to the Kirshemann household and with mixed opinions headed out for several hours travel in the dark forest with no outdoors experience between them. Theo led the party and got lost several times, the party was somewhat unimpressed and after realising they had spent four hours searching in the dark they made camp for the night. The party made camp and took turns keeping lookout. Theo, whom was second watch, fell asleep on duty and proceeded to have a very raunchy dream involving a very attractive woman with exceptional tongue control, theo woke soon after to find a grizly bear had pinned hm down and was licking his face and presumably was about to eat him. Theo was gravely injured by the Bear but the party brought it down, Theo took the bear claws as a trophy of his near death experience.

The party continued to The Kirschemann house where they were greeted rather hostilely by suspected murderer and household owner Max. Theo threatened to kill Max and Max reacted violently, yelling for his family to take cover, he attacked Theo believing the party may have been bandits due to the hostile nature in which Theo was behaving. Nigel attempted to halt Max but he then attacked Nigels horse. Dorf then attempted to take control by hitting Max over the head with the blunt side of his axe, unfortuantely for Dorf the resilience of a human skull is substantially lower then that of his own and the blow hit with tremendous force that Max was knocked unconscious with a single blow. Nigel and Dorf then proceeded to tie up Max for questioning later.

Theo and Tyrel attempted to get Max’s wife Klothilda to open the cabin door in which she would not comply due to the fact she heard her husband yell that the party were bandits and looked out the window and saw Dorf attack her husband with a savage blow to the head. Theo picked the lock and went around the side of the house to see if there was an alternate entrance. Tyrel warned Klothilda that he was coming in side and that he meant her no harm, upon opening the door Klothilda fired her blunderbuss point blank into Tyrel’s chest and Tyrel collapsed unconsoius, his torso a wrangled mess of blood, flesh and shrapnel.

Nigel restrained Klothilda while Theo brought Tyrel inside to assess the lethality of his wounds. Theo continued acting aggressively towards Klothilda ad her children so Nigel attacked him. Nigel then stormed out of the cabin calling te group criminals and then rode off. Dorf tried to calm down the children and question Klothilda awhile Theo continued threatening everybody. After unnsucesfully trying to diffuse the situation they checks on Max whom had passed away, in the process of knocking him out Dorf’s blow caused internal bleeding in Max’s skull and died shortly after.

Theo was unperturbed about this and continued to threaten Klothilda and her children, this time with sexual assault. Dorf then punched Theo out and tied him up leaving Dorf with Tyrel and Theo unconscious, one missing party member, one dead father and a mother and two children terrified of him. Dorf untied Klothilda and questioned her again, he also found two keys of unkown origin in Max’s body and assumed they belonged to Karlis and Gretchen as when he visited their houses their doors were locked after they had been murdered. Klothilda attended to Tyrel’s wounds and suggested to Dorf that he returned to the apothecary’s house to get some healing draughts. Dorf then tied Theo to his horse and set off.

Theo awoke and was unimpressed with Dorf, especially since he believed he did nothing wrong. The pair found the healing druaghts and continued back to the cabin. Klothilda administered the healing draughts and Tyrel awoke shortly after but could not move due to his ill health. The party decided to stay the night and Dorf and Theo slept outside. Around 10pm they heard the sound of horses and were confronted by a group of road wardens sent to arrest them, Dorf and Theo killed the lot of them as Dorf refused to surrender and then told Tyrel that they were leaving the party as they were now wanted criminals and did not want to implicate him any further. Theo once again threatened Klothilda and decided not to rape her due to his heavily injured state, he went seperate ways to Dorf and took the Warriors Sword with him.

A favour for an old friend...

The party’s night of relaxation at the Charred Mare continued. Tyrel spent the night talking to Jeanne-Joséphine Potier, he discovered that she was a Bretonian noble and by the heraldic colours of her bodyguard Giles that she was someone of significance. Dorf returned from the docks and had an altercation with a drunk Kislevite sailor named Andrei, the result of this was a vodka drinking contest in which Dorf prevailed. Andrei was thrown out of the inn and Theo proceeded to rob his unconscious body, pleased with the amount of silver he obtained off Andrei’s hard won drinking bets.

Nigel successfully wooed a local girl, an impressive feat considering how beastly drunk he was and them both of them went upstairs, unfortunately for Theo they went in his room, Theo was unimpressed but soon joined in in the fun at Nigel’s request and Theo, resourceful as always, complied with great enthusiasm. The next morning Nigel illegitimately denied all behaviour of misconduct, doubting the vulgar stories that Theo told him as a proper officer would not behave in such a fashion, even though he couldn’t quite remember what happened.

The party then sniffed around Delberz for information regarding the bounty on Sigmund Sirehart. All leads pointed them to the Heye Shipping Co in nearby Hemperbrook so they travelled there. Tyrel noted the curious levels of security in the Delberz county, the fact that watchmen document who is travelling in and out of the county towns as well as where they are going, he also noticed a significant amount of road wardens about, all very uncharacteristic for war ravaged Middenland.

The party reached Hemperbrook and sought out the Heye shipping Co. There they met Rodgard Heye, whom after discovering that Dorf and Tyrel were the adventurers helped save his little sister Ilse Heye, offered them a use of a company boat to track down Sigmund Sirehart. Rodgard had been gathering information on the pirates exploits, he did say that the number of attacks increased over 4 months ago and the number of deaths in these attacks had increased dramatically over time.

The party left the Heye shipping Co and assisting a gravely wounded man in getting to the doctor. The doctor was an old acquittance of Dorf and Tyrel by the name of Torsten Freimans who asked the party to do him to retrieve some antidotes from his apothecary a day or so travel out of town as she was late on her delivery.

The party then headed towards the apothecary’s house, on their travel they met a friendly charcoal burner by the name of Karlis Schnittger and they spent the night at his cabin in the woods. Karlis told the party that Gretchen (the apothecary) and himself “keep each other company” from time to time. Dorf was also after a bear pelt and Karlis suggested that he head to the Kirschemann household which was a few hours walk away.

The party reached the apothecary house where they found out she wasn’t home. After some searching they discovered the battered and naked body of a woman in her early thirties. Tyrel, using his recently learned medicinal knowledge, deduced that she had been dead for around three days. The woman also had bruising around her face, arms and ribs in which Nigel indicated are traits of defensive wounds. Nigel also discovered that the wound which killed the woman was blunt force trauma to the back of the head. The party decided to leave Nigel and Theo at the apothecaries house and head back to Karlis to question him. Upon arriving at Karlis’s house they found Karlis dead in a shallow grave with a puncture wound in his chest, most commonly caused by an arrow or crosswbow bolt. After some quick searching they found a custom fletched arrow driven into the ground.

The mercantile irritant

Our adventures woke up after a hard night of relaxation and leisurely pursuits. Nigel told the group that he had left his command, thus freeing him of his military obligations and allowing him to travel with the group. They decided they wished to travel to Altdorf for Tyrel to return to the bright college for wizardly duties and decided to travel via Delberz along the Altdorf-Middenheim road as the other route via Untergard was currently occupied by several hundred Beastmen.

After haggling with new party member Theo they made there way down to the gates of Middenheim where they encountered an old employer Engelbert Lancier and his two loyal teamsters Felix and Verner. After much haggling with Engelbert and some minor convincing via Felix the party agreed to guard Engelbert’s caravan for the trip down to Delberz.

The trip was largely uneventful and by the end of it Theo and Tyrel was that frustrated with indecisive and annoying merchant that they were ready to tear his head off, fortunately common sense prevailed and they reached there destination without fault.

The party then booked a night at the Charred Mare where they spent the night gambling chatting and eventually fighting. Tyrel found out that there was a piracy problem on the river caused by Captain Sigmund Sirehart and that there was a substantial reward for his capture, he also found out the Heye Shipping Co had a small reward out for information about pirate sightings.

Nigel spent the night chasing various women throughout the tavern with mixed success. Dorf spent his time with some fellow dwarves who told him of the gossip and later went out with Theo while Theo spent the majority of his night playing cards with Jeanne-Joséphine Potier before discovering she was not willing to have sex with him, he then threatened her and left the inn with Dorf.

The adventure ended late in the night, Nigel was well on his way to wooing a local tavern girl, Tyrel had washed up and was keen to spend some time with Jean, Dorf had just beaten up a marine in the docks for a paid bet and Theo made a nice profit on wagers from the fight.

A History of Violence - Session 5
Sins of the father....

The party awoke in a cell below the city of Altdorf there they learnt the reasoning behind Theophil Garterfield and why he betrayed the party to Hahn Golder. The party was forced to watch from the constraints of their cell as Mario Rosseto tortured a helpless Ilse Heye and watch as Ursel Forstner stabbed a beaten and bloody Ilse to finish her off. They next moved on to Lindenberg Shulze who had been in captivity since the beginning of the adventure. Here they learnt that Lindenberg was actually Otto von Clausen, a former business tycoon thought to be dead by Hahn Golder’s own hands.

Hahn attempted to kill Lindenberg, like he had done so many years ago, but was interrupted when a party of guardsmen led by Captain Hershel Sturmgahner and Hov Borad stormed the premises. Ursel, Hahn and Mario escaped but Theo was killed by Hov Borad in an act of vengeance.

The guardsmen took the injured party members and the comatose body of Ilse Heye (who had miraculously survived) to a nearby Shallyan ward to recover. Captain Sturmgahner devised a plan in which Hov Borad was to start a riot (caused by angry dock workers) and during the cover of the choas raid the Rosseto and Golder estates to finish them off. The party agreed to assist Hov Borad in raiding the Golder’s and leave Captain Sturmgahner to raid the Casa di Rosseto.

The party remembered the secret sewer entrance to the Golder estate from their last visit below Altdorf and continued down there, leaving Hov and the angry populace to storm the above entrance. The group encountered some Golder security guarding the secret hatch, they dispatched them with ease but found out the Hahn had already escaped from the sewers.

They pursued him with some brief assistance from Maggio Paddins and they confronted Hahn and his son Leonhard along with some guardsmen. The fight was brutal and the party only jsut made it out alive, unfortunately during the chaos Hahn and Leonhard managed to escape.

The party returned to the Shallyan ward to tend to their (quite severe) wounds and learnt the aftermath of the riots. Mario Rosseto managed to escape the raiding party but Mario’s daughter Sienna was killed along with his 2ic Emilio Maretti. During the Golder raid the rioters succumbed to their base instincts and killed Hahn Golders wife and his two 2 grandchildren. Hov Borad and the guardsmen managed to kill Gottleib Forstner (Hahns son-in-law) but in turn Ursel Forstner killed Hov and made her escape.

Lindenberg told the group that Ilse was in fact his daughter and that he was leaving the party to assist her in her recovery.
