We've had a meteor crash down, with all the usual death, destruction and creepy-crawlies coming out of the woodwork. My thumbs are prickling about this one. We can't leave it alone, that's for sure. Time to do your thing.
~ Franz Lohner

Bit of a troubling one for you. Seems like we've had a bloody great meteor make a mess. Now, I don't have to tell you that things falling from the sky ain't exactly good news, do I? And that's without some of the other reports I'm getting. Sort it out, would you?
~ Franz Lohner

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The Heroes travel to investigate the nearby crash site of a meteor. When nearing the impact site, they come across a campsite that they do not recognize as Skaven. Right afterwards they meet with the ones responsible for the encampment: The Beastmen. The heroes see the destruction the meteor has caused while they have to make their way towards the crater. Inside the crater they find out that the Beastmen have made the meteor their herdstone and have to use Olesya's powers to remove it from the location.

Event[edit | edit source]

After the encampment, the heroes find a Rat Ogre corpse downriver with a Crude Weapon stuck in it. When they examine the sword, they get ambushed by the Beastmen and have to fend them off until a group of Bestigors break through a make-do wall, allowing the heroes to continue.

Finale[edit | edit source]

When the heroes reach the herdstone, they have to kill multiple Standard Bearers whilst fending off a massive Horde, often accompanied by a Minotaur. When the herdstone is finally removed, Olesya creates a Bridge of Shadows where the herdstone used to be.

Post-mission[edit | edit source]

After completing the mission, Olesya moves from the Bridge of Shadows to the Arcanum, which is on the roof to the rear of Taal's Horn Keep. There's a shortcut to it in the Main Hall next to the Hero Selection. Completing the mission also allows the player to participate in Weaves, which can be accessed from the Arcanum.
