We start with the party leaving the Rednecks in Morag and deciding to cross to the otherside of Lepitstadt and go to Hergstag to further their investigations.
In Lepitstadt they stopped briefly to purchase a few items and attempted to investigate Grines and Vorkstags Chymmical works only to be quickly turned aside. Vowing to return later at night they left to explore Hergstag while the sun was still high in the sky.
Upon arrival at Hergstag they began their investigation with the town’s church and the burial plots of the 6 children. While outside of the Church the quickly found out that the town was strewn with Beartraps, left apparently in case the Beast returned.
While inside the Church the party was set upon by a Wraith Spawn which they quickly defeated but still taking some damage to a few party member’s constitution.
They then began to dig up the graves of the 6 children the Beast is accused of slaying but they only found the bodies of 2 of the children, neither of which show in sign of physical trauma.
As the mystery furthered they began to search the rest of the town but they were attacked by another Wraith spawn with more arriving as they battled the previous ones. During this combat it was Edmond that realized that these wraith were the slain children!
In the end the wraith known as Brother Swam came to punish those who attack his children. He attempted to flee after suffering terrible damage from the hands of the Party but Malik quickly slayed him before he got too far.
Realizing that the wraith was fleeing to the hill that they Scarecrow was on they explored the area and discovered the cave that he was hiding in along with the 5 bodies, 1 was the body of a would be thief and the other 4 were the missing bodies of the children. All missing children had no signs of bodily harm. They were clearly slain by Brother Swarm.
At this point, the party decided that it was the perfect time to go and explore they Chymical works.
Fingers expertly picked the locked gate and they quickly defeated the Flesh Golem Hound and the 4 Mongrelmen that guarded the instance and then went into the Chymical Works themselves where they entered into quite the Fray in the Vat room.
Fingers was quickly poisoned by Grine but jumped up to the catwalk to fight him. While this was going on the Rex went up the ladder to the catwalk where he quickly tripped the hidden Vorkstag and kept him down despite the best efforts of the Mongrelmen that work for the nefarious duo.
Once Fingers defeated Grine a Mongrelmen ended up triping him into one of the vat’s of chemicals but it was the quick thinking and work of Ion, Edmond and Forsythe that helped him narrowly avoid his end.
While Rex began to flee to hide behind Forsythe and Malikd after he had taken quite a bit of damage, Vorkstag ended up falling off of the catwalk while Forsythe and Malik quickly disposed of the remaining Mongrelmen.
Vorkstag attempted to flee but the party didn’t allow him to so he gave up and plead for mercy.
And this is where we ended…….What will the party find out from Vorkstag and what other mysteries will they uncover in the Chymical works.
