Charles, and Treadle chilled with the Prince of Cygnar. They celebrated his return at the capitol with the rest of the country’s nobility. Charles met up with his ex-wife, Delilah, and her new husband, a Cygnaran Duke, while Treadle mingled with the guests.
There was intrigue afoot. Prince Reese asked the PCs to investigate if any nobility knew about arms smuggling in and out of Cygnar. They nosed around and found an illegal shipment was on its way into Caspia that night. To make matters more complicated, a group of brigands planned to intercept the smugglers, ambush them, steal the shipment, and sell the weapons to to Menite dissidents in Southern Cygnar.
Prince Reese immediately put Charles and Treadle in charge of a crack team to intercept the shipment, ambush the ambush, and then arrest the entire bunch.
Their operation was a success. They killed nearly all the brigands and saved the entire shipment, turning it over to the Prince.
After reading over the report, the Prince commissioned Charles and Treadle to find the source of the illegal shipments. The intelligence gathered from the ambush pointed them toward the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is the
Five Fingers of Ord.
The party of Charles, Jill, Treadle, Amelia and Delilah reach Five Fingers. They checked in at the “Hanging Maiden” on Bellicose Island at around 4 pm. By early evening they had ran afoul of Madame Voodoo. She ambushed them in their room at the Hanging Maiden. The dread necromancer had summoned a half dozen dragonspawn and her giant “Fist of Doom” crashing down from a thunderhead cloud. Things would not end well.
Just then, Hope Illyria and Vladimir landed on the bridge between Bellicose Island and the mainland. They spotted the giant black fist smashing down on the inn and figured that was the most likely place to start looking for Charles and Treadle.
By this time Voodoo was finishing what she came for: Both Delilah and Amelia were dead, she had claimed Delilah’s soul as a thrall, and whomped on Charles with her dragonspawn. As the Agent and Paladin ran up the Necromancer dissapeared into the night.
Charles and Treadle took Amelia’s body to the nearest church of Morrow. The party got another room at a different inn and held out for the night. The next morning a messenger from the Priest of Morrow arrived with surprising news: Amelia was not dead.
Charles raced to the church. Inside, his daughter was alive and well. The priest explained what had happened: Several hours after they had left her with him, he was preparing to imbalm the body. As he prepared to cut her open, she awoke in front of him with a gasp and a start. He was very startled. Miraculously, her body had healed from the damage done the night before. As she recovered, he immediately went about researching how someone could be miraculously recover from death. There was only one answer: Amelia was a Harbinger, a special being sent from Caen to bring about the end times. As a Harbinger, Amelia can only be killed by dragonfire or a deity – of which Voodoo is niether, leaving Amelia alive. Charles was relieved and soon thereafter got into an argument with his daughter about why her mother (his ex) was killed, and about which parent was a better role model, and why she has a bullet in her shoulder, and why he never came to her 16th birthday …
Later that morning, Hope revealed she and Vlad were on a mission to investigate the “Old Colossal” – a relic from the Orgoth war that has been rusting away on the beach of Captain’s Island. Th party decided to pursue this venture …
