Fear the curse of Wittgenstein
this way comes...
'Ere Bran sat below the deck
locked away without a sign-
wrestling o'er bestial mind,
speculating slivered truths...
a worthwhile ventured muse.
T'was a knock upon Brans door
that startled Bran from the floor,
a trance cut short forever more.
lacking common ground-
Fellows stared dumbfound,
o’er scrolls spread around-
strange pictures to be found.
Wherein depicted Von Dagmar
linked by string, to a pentagram
herein the din. Hark! Karl Franz
art pictured too, stranger still-
betwixt litter and latter;
't'was a sausage plump and brown,
Juxtaposed hereupon scenes prose.
Sigmars sausage looked a treat
sitting their for all to eat, as-
hands reached out for plumpy meat
Hands off! Bran did entreat!
thine sausage 'tis thou feast!
The group arrived at the signal tower to find a master foreman Dwarf in a heap upon the floor. His team had been massacred. Yet the Dwarf still lived, to tell the grim tale of a rampaging river Troll.
Hargrin's ears had pricked at this, his desire to settle his death oath taking presidence upon all else.
With much debate the groups order of business was settled with first entering the signal tower. Hunting the river troll in revenge for the Dwarves would have to come later, as the signal tower may have held secrets of much import!
Using a key found within the devils bowl, upon the secret double doors, below the signal tower; proved fruitful. However, as unseen gears grinded, a pit trap was sprung! Falco fell unfortunate victim to the trap busting an ankle. Gustav quickly produced a rope to climb down the pit and the rest of the party soon followed.
Bran shed magical light within the pit, revealing it to be an ad-hoc library of sorts. As the group searched feverishly for riches and clues, Brans eyes flash white in lieu of his magical sight. Discovering a healing potion... to which he eventually gave to Falco, eventually! The group had discovered much vital information regarding Von Dagmar Wittgenstein. Including a diary and other magical notes, pertaining to the blasphemous use of Warpstone! As well as other mad dreams of world domination!
Before leaving the Signal tower proper, the group adhere to burying the bodies left behind by the rampaging river Troll. Rutger, noticing the angered plights of the ship captain, pays a gold crown for Brans eccentric miss-deeds. He wrecked my cabin the captain spits! After paying without fuss, Rutger promptly warns the Captain of the river Troll. With that the ship leaves for Altdorf leaving the group without transport. As the sun begins to set and With much thanks by the defeated dwarf foreman, the group leave hot on the tracks of the river Troll...
...Be it Hargrin's doom or the Trolls demise, vengeance for the Dwarfs will be had this night or the next! Expression grim, Bran thinks that Hargrin's doom is nigh... As he sets to the sky once more!
