So, our 4 friends spent a lovely few days on the Berebeli with Josef and the crew and arrived at Bogenhafen early morning on the first day of the Schaffenfest, the town’s annual fair and sheep festival!
From the docks, contingency plans were made with how to deal with collecting the inheritance and our team went looking for the lawyers. After talking to some of the locals they drew a blank. Wandy came up with the genius idea of seeking out the printers who made the inheritance letter. From talking to the printers our team concluded that Adolphus, the bounty hunter, had printed the letters. Why tho, still remains a mystery.
Disappointed and lacking some direction, our heroes revert to their default state of – fuck it, let’s have a beer, and head to the festival.
At the festival, excitement and merriment are everywhere and our team take in the sights and sounds. They stop at the livestock market and Werner nearly buys a flock of lambs and Gnoblar has an arguement with a medicine merchant. Drawn in by the crowd the guys head to the wrestling ring and Werner decides he can take the champ and steps into the ring to the enjoyment of the crowd! After a round or so it becomes apparent that the champion is not as tired as he appears. Werner gives him a blow to the right leg, and then he looks angry. A couple of blows later Werner taps out and hobbles out of the ring, much to the disappointment of the crowd.
Our crew continue thro the festival towards the freak show. On the way Wandy decides to have his palm read, the fortune teller offers some words then becomes agitated and gets him to leave.
At the freak show the guys assist in capturing one of the escaped exhibits, much to the gratitude of the showman and they recieve free tickets and top seats for the main event.
Whilst waiting for the show, Werner heads off to seek treatment for his leg and Gnoblar, Rowlocks and Wandy head to the beer tent. Rowlocks heads to the bar and uses his charm to avert a brawl, Werner gets healed and heads to the beer tent and Wandy befriends a mangy looking dog. Wandy checks his coinpurse to find he is short of 3 crowns. Wandy is very sad about this.
The freakshow is thoroughly entertaining but ends with drama, the goblin escapes again into the sewer system, the party and Doctor M are taken to the festival court to explain to the magistrate what happened. They are then hired to solve the problem.
They are given accommodation at the town’s expense and the team prepare for a trip into the sewers.
Lanterns, food and water purchased the guys head to the manhole. After some serious skill by Gnoblar, the ladder is placed and they enter the disgusting horrible mess that is Bogenhafen sewer system.
Our team head east looking for the breathing hole the goblin entered. On the way they decide to investigate a minor sewer in which they find a weird door etched with a symbol. Wandy uses his powers to silently open the door and they enter a cellar in which they find 3 blokes.
Before they know it they are trapped, bound and gagged and find themselves being talked to by there new “friends”. After complying with their requests, they are escorted back to the sewers and continue looking for the goblin.
They pick up a trail of goblin blood from the breathing hole and follow it thro the sewer system which leads them to a door. With no other option they break down the door and enter what appears to be a underground temple to the ruinous powers of evil.
Before they have time to take in the scene a demon manifests itself and the party are gripped by fear. After a short interaction they turn and run, grabbing the 3 socketed pelvis on the way out and make their way to the nearest manhole.
Down the main sewer they come across a swarm of rats. Werner throws food across the channel, the rats take the bait and the party head to the manhole. With no ladder, it’s down to Werner to climb up and secure a rope.
After several dunks in the shit river he manages to secure exit for the party and they once again breath clean air and they head to the Journeys end inn. The landlord wont let them in, so they head to the river, get cleaned down and then go back for a rest as the sun comes up.
