GM’s Summary:
The party arrives at Kemperbad and engages in various trades and purchases, during which Alric Konrad is harrassed by another person who seems to be a cultist. That night, they all agree to a job for the local Thieves’ Guild, which almost goes wrong as Adelyn Zumwald is chased across town by several guards. Felix Frolish opts to stay in town to look for other work. Later, sailing further up the Reik River, the party finds a beached barge, and agrees to help float it again.

GM’s Summary:
The party sails past Castle Reikguard and is tasked with spreading a new law, legalising mutants. The party accepts, but immediately disregards the instruction as soon as they’ve left. Later, some nervous Dwarves try to flag them down, leading to them agreeing to help Aynjulls Isembeard uncover what’s been abducting his workers at one of the Imperial Signal Towers under construction. It turns out that the tower is built on zombie-infested ruins, which the party clears, apart from one room that appeared to accept 6 rod-like “keys”, of which the party only found 5.

GM’s Summary:
Arriving in Delberz, the party finds the home of Heironymus Blitzen and discusses their cult-hunting activities with him. He tells them the little he knows, then suggests a ritual to see into their pasts, as a second chance to collect vital clues. The party largely wastes this opportunity on practical jokes. After this, they travel downriver again, finding and mostly ignoring a crashed Dwarven steam boat. A day beyond Altdorf, sailing up the Reik, they are attacked by pirates, but evade them.

GM’s Summary:
Continuing their investigations in Altdorf, the names Loorbeer and Kuhn are connected with a merchant ship that probably left on the 31st. Other lines of pursuit are ineffective, including an attempt to hire a young pickpocket to watch the party for anyone spying on them. She is later murdered in an apparently unrelated dispute. Adelyn & Alric also attempt to break into a house, only to disturb the fire mage living there. They flee at once and are also fined for it by the Thieves’ Guild. Following this, the Ungenannt sailed up the Talabec to find Felix’s bounty in Geldrecht, only to learn that he’d already headed further upriver.

GM’s Summary:
Leaving Zandt, the Ungenannt continues up the Reik, frightening fishermen with its gory new Beastman figurehead and passing Carroburg without stopping. They find an abandoned fishing boat, carrying a small cargo reeking with noxious fumes, which they clean up and salvage. In Altdorf, they are followed by a young man, and when Adelyn chases him, he falls under a speeding cart and soon dies. He appears to have some connection to the purple hand cult. The rest of the next 24 hours is spent on commerce and apparently fruitless investigation.

As told by Ulshar Eldenkin:
Marienburg

My largely illiterate and ineffective companions have decided to take
up training for a week, hopefully this has some effect, while I accept
that not all can follow strictly legal career paths, it would help if
they could be a little more cunning and discreet about their pursuits.
During this time I have managed to find a few potential trade leads,
as well as acquiring us a passenger. The passenger is paying 15 gold
up front, which will help toward acquiring some cargo (in this case
silk). We have also been asked to carry a shipment of doilies which,
due to the recent stock-market collapse and general financial chaos
and panic, are unable to be sold here.

My companions have also áquired’ a cargo of fish, I feel this is
unwise, for obvious reasons, but desisted from raising the matter, as
there is still sufficient space in the Ungenannt to accommodate it,
and we will make no loss.

Villiage where we sold the fish-pots?

We have passed several towns now, and found no willing buyers for the
shellfish. The odour is becoming most rank, and our passenger (rightly
so I think) is complaining rather vocally about the fact. In an effort
to redeem the situation somewhat, it seems we are selling the pots for
8 (?) gold. The purchaser did insist we wash them out however.
Perhaps tomorrow will be more profitable. I also look forward to
visiting a more civilised town.

Night of Terror!

We have been attacked by chaos elements yet again! It seems my old
mentor was correct, chaos is rife in the lands of the humans. [[Beastmen|Beast
men]] ambushed us, as well as fearsome troll. It seems these days I fair
better in battle, though I still find it to be rather distasteful. I
felled one Beastman with an arrow through the head. I must say, I
thought it would make quite a striking figurehead for our barge,
suitable for these savage lands, but alsa most of the beastmen were
swept down river, and, after all, our new companion Felix must make a
living. The troll was considerably more fearsome, and kept
regenerating after our valiant blows. Eventually he was felled by
fire, mostly due to Adelyn’s brave actions, though I did assist rather
ably, if I say so myself. We were indeed sorely put upon though, and
hopefully we escape the attention of chaos agents in the near future.

GM’s Summary:
The party spent a week on thief training with the League of Gentlemen Entrepreneurs, and trying to find a cargo worth hauling back up the Reik with them. After some dispute over where they were actually headed, they set off aboard their newly renamed barge, the Ungenannt. An attack by Beastmen and a pitch-black Chaos Troll took them by surprise as they passed through the southern Wasteland, but they prevailed, earning unexpected gratitude from the terrified citizens of the nearby town of Zandt.

GM’s Summary:
Grombil leaves the party to assist a Wastelander looking for help with a rampaging troll, and the party takes on the assistance of Felix Frolish, bounty hunter. While the Boorsboom shares continue to rise, the party investigates a lead about Red Scarf and finds where she’s been sleeping on the beach outside of the city. Following her back into the city that night, they watch her kill a man, before a truly enormous crab, three storeys tall, rises out of the water and attacks them. Red Scarf is killed and the crab chased away, with Alric and Ulshar bad injured by its powerful gripping claws. Looking for aid, they discover the city is under a curfew, following riots over the collapse of the Wasteland Import-Export Exchange, linked to the Boorsboom shares.

GM’s Summary:
After a night in the Trumpet Inn, the party collects the painting of Ranald and takes it to the docks to find a suitable container to safely transport it in. There, a pair of strangers selling pots and pans make a gesture at Alric that they last saw in Altdorf. One of them shakes his hand, leaving it stained with purple ink, then they disappear into the town. The barge stops as night falls at the end of their first day of sailing down river to Marienburg, and after dinner everyone suffers odd symptoms and passes out. They wake up to find many items stolen from them, with their only positive lead being a scrap of parchment marked with the same symbol seen on the warning note found in Elvyra Kleinestun‘s house. Further down river, the Carroburg Thieves’ Guild is unable to help. Eventually, in Marienburg, the painting is delivered to Hans von Kleptor, who knows nothing of the warning symbol, has some leads about the purple hand symbol, and also asks the party to investigate a murder.

GM’s Summary:
Sailing down the Bögen, the Maria encounters mutants led by Heinz Schiller, attacking a barge stuck on an embankment. Schiller and all but one of the mutants are killed, and an elf woman, Ulshar Eldenkin, is the sole survivor of the boat’s original crew. She joins the party and the unnamed barge is claimed and re-crewed. The next day, they arrive in Weissbruck and the Maria travels on without the party, who are asked by Crum Grunberry to find a missing associate, Elvyra Kleinestun. An investigation quickly leads to the discovery that she’s been kidnapped and taken to a barn outside town, and soon she is rescued. Also, Grombil’s arms mutate into tentacles and he turns slayer, wrapping the arms up to hide them.
