this is not the first time sigmar was reborn.
investigate karl in marienberg to see if he is really sigmar.
we made 10 gold each
joseph is curious because marienberg is no longer a part of the empire. it won its independence hundreds of years ago. they are not big on sigmar.
gustav will be a dick to the marianberg folk.
did some investigating. Before he was sent to jail, Max was seen talking to a franklin. he was later seen heading to Altdorf. franklin has not been seen.
franklin gables a lot and hangs out in seedy places.
book passage on a cargo ship. trip takes 4-5 days. we arrive in marienberg after a very uneventful trip.
gustav makes ass of self.
some random dude on the dock says that karl left and led a big crusade. supposedly the “new sigmar” needs to take back his empire.
siegfried investigates the temple district.
winkelmarkt is where karl’s rabble were hanging out.
went to temple wijk. i don’t have to worry about typing that. biggest/nicest buildings.
massive white and gold temple for sea god (whose name i don’t know how to spell).
the temple of sigmar looks abandoned. it is decent sized, but run down (twss). looks like it hasn’t been occupied in a while (decades or a century).
it is fenced up and locked with a padlock.
siegfried uses his hammer to smash the lock to the fence. he and gustav start cleaning the place up. dudes in uniforms with black berets come over. they
direct the party to a different, smaller, temple of sigmar. this temple was closed because the sigmarites opposed marienberg independence.
gustav plans to rebuild the temple.
the party heads towards the smaller temple. it’s not shaped like a hammer; it’s not big enough (twss).
there is a woman in a cage. she was imprisoned for being a witch (according to the black hats). She was sentenced to death by
exposure. she was imprisoned by the sigmarites. she spoke out against karl and said that he is a heretic.
gustav walks into the temple and is greeted by a priest of the temple. gustav kind of seemed to be hitting on him.
priest confirms that Karl is from marienberg. gustav can’t wrap his head around this. years of reading religious books have stunted his ability to process innovative ideas.
priest tells us that Karl is heading to altdorf to reclaim his throne.
konrad notices that the preist gets all glassy-eyed when he talks about Karl. he gets very worked up when people question Karl.
Karl is 6 years old. This priest seems to be really into this young boy.
Karl was from an orphanage. The mother is unknown. He became known because he kicked some cultists asses with a hammer. People started following him at that point.
He never made the claim that he was Sigmar.
The priest kicked us out of the temple for asking too many good questions.
We went to winklmarkt. it seemed strangely empty. We think karl is responsible.
did some gossipping. Karl’s followers were mostly refugees. The “witch” was disguised as a shalyan priestess and lead agents of chaos. she tried to denounce the
boy in front of the old temple. helmut was the person who saw through her and killed the agents of chaos (they were all killed).
Some random dude came up to us and attempted to sell some holy relics to us. his name was mr peek. He even had the shirt that Karl was wearing when he killed the heretics. It had the symbol of a flying dove on it.o
found the orphanage near the dood canal. there are children outside singing and playing. they are wearing tunics similar to the one we saw. there is an initiate
there staring at her feet and blocking the door. an older lady comes out and glares at us.
everyone except konrad gave up their weapons to go into the temple. siegfried unsuccessfully hits on marietta. The night Karl was brought to them, a twin tail comet was seen.
karl was kidnapped and killed his kidnappers. then helmut proclaimed him sigmar reborn.
gustav offends the head of the orphanage while trying to find out what marietta was being punsihed for.
kids at the orphanage are singing about sigmar. a girl is questioning the fact that they are being forced to build a shrine to Karl and gets punsished for it.
marietta gives siegfried a note that says “i love the cock”. no wait… not really. it says lutzen is a fool who lies to herself. talk to the true aboss outside of town.
