Our villains are sent to Branderscar Prison, the most notorious prison in the land, to meet the headsman for their heinous crimes against Talingarde and it’s fair people. Within the cell, are five men; Cade, a man found guilty of Treason; Hershel, a demon-blooded bastard convicted of Extortion; Varn, a savage practitioner of Witchcraft; Murdoc, a fiend-blooded devil worshipper found Consorting with Dark Powers; and Malkiel, a forsaken angel-kin discovered Desecrating a temple of Mitra. A dour situation, the villains receive aid from a mysterious woman on the behalf of an unknown benefactor. After giving them a Veil of Useful Items and departing, the villains free themselves from their bonds, gain the aid of Grumblejack the Ogre who has been kept in Branderscar awaiting his own execution.
Our villains slaughter some of the guards, and make their way to the guardhouse. They climb over the guardhouse, but not before killing Sergeant Tomas Blackerly.
After escaping the prison, our villains made their way through the Moors, and arrived at the Manor on the Old Moor Road to meet their unseen benefactor.
