At Headless Cove
- All the soldiers and sailors gather to huddle around the campfire.
- During the night, 2 sailing ships are spotted leaving the harborage
- ‘Nymphs Fancy’ and another fast ship.
- All look worried as Vlad considers this news, but they choose to remain.
Mind the Fall
- Mal, Pyotr, Vlad, Aujaq and the Doctor bring rope and torches to the headland.
- The rope bridge is half ruined and singed.
- Aujaq asks Koda to cross and help them – he grudgingly agrees.
- They tie a small rope to some of the large ship-ropes brought up.
- Pyotr scurries across with the end of the rope.
- Koda and Pyotr haul over the ropes and fix the bridge.
- The Doctor still nearly falls from the bridge – not good with heights.
The Belly of the Beast
- They carefully explore the lair carved into the top o fthe statue.
- Mostly abandoned, signs of hurried packing.
- Find various sleeping quarters – Wichtel, Troll, and Human.
- Evidence that some people are still here (or didn’t pack anything)
- Pass a large doorway with sounds of heavy breathing behind it.
- Meet and capture a scholarly woman in room full of drawings and fragments
- Evidence of siegsdorf attack plans and recruiting.
- Ask Birgit some pointed questions – bring her up to the soldiers.
- Ambush and kill a pair of trolls (large hairy bear-like hunters)
The Ancient Manse
- Enter into an older serction underneath – original construction.
- Rooms are all slanted, hard to move around.
- Enter a temple-like room – broken statues line the walls – the 6 Lords.
- Mal notes a trap in the corridor leading deeper.
- Thrown statuary sets off the blade-trap.
- Hear someone coming to investigate – hide
- Hilde is there – near naked carrying a torch and light. Turns off the trap to investigate.
- Vlad rushes her – throwing a smoke-flask (mistletoe and silver)
- Pyotr fires arrows through the smoke
- The demon-armor reacts and stops the attacks. Vlad hears it giving warnings.
- The five of them are near ineffective, but manuver Hilde back into the smoke.
- Smoke stings the eyes of the demon armor – and Hilde is left unprotected.
- Mal and Pyotr tackle and hold her – Vlad runs her through.
- Vlad takes her head – to give to the Doctor for questioning.
