Robertus von Oppenheim asked for help to perform the ritual to destroy the bell clapper.
Priest Frost was convinced to allow the ritual to take place and a date was arranged to perform the ritual.
Oppenheim also said that the party needed to acquire some Wyvern poison as an ingredient for the ritual.
Additionally, the each member performing the ritual needs to gain a blessing from their chosen deity to purify them before the ritual takes place.
The party arranged to meet with Adele Ketzenblum by leaving a message at The Prospect Inn, where she was staying. Adele, rearranged the meeting to the Halfway House tavern. During the meeting Adele asked many questions and was interested in the party’s activities in Middenheim.
During the meeting, Adele discussed her suspicions about the identity of the Black Cowl.
She thinks it could be Captain Marcus Baerfaust as he planned the military aspect of the Southlands Expedition that brought the dark Artifact back to the Empire. Baerfaust had lots of ‘his men’ on the misson.
Also she suspects Luminary Konrad Mauer as he gave advice about sites that the expedition should investigate. Adele also said the Luminary Konrad Mauer’s whole family was condemned to the pyre as witches.
Another suspect is Graf Friedrich von Kaufman who she described as ‘a weasel’ who financed the Southlands expedition.
The party visited retired witch hunter Gregor Helstrum who was Adele’s mentor. He was suprised to hear she was in Middenheim. Helstrom said that both he and Adele Ketzenblum were captured and tortured by a cult called the Red Crown 6 years ago. They were rescued by a group including Captain Marcus Baerfaust
Helstrum had no strong thoughts about Graf Wolfgang von Aschenbeck
On the morning of the 17th, the party received a letter from Brenner, a man who was also investigating Graf Wolfgang von Aschenbeck. brenner asked to meet that evening at the Draken Inn.
On visiting the Draken, the group discovered Brenner’s room had been turned over and Chaos symbols had been scrawled on the walls. The Watch arrived promptly and discovered a journal implicating Graf Wolfgang von Aschenbeck in many crimes related to the worship of the hidden enemy.
On the morning of the 18th, the party awoke to discover that someone had poisoned their breakfast. Lambeth was sick on the floor.
