Festering ss.jpg

The Rotbloods are digging for something, which means we had to dig too, but through old dusty tomes instead of earth. Turns out they're after the lost Monolith of Ghulmagak. Cursed thing is said to contain the putrid soul of a long-dead Chaos Lord, and I dread to think on the immense power lurking within. Unfortunately, we'd need a score of wizards to even make a dent in the bloody thing, but Olesya has found a way to deal with it, for now at least.

I won't weary you with the history lesson, but the Rotbloods have found themselves a long forgotten artefact of terrifying power. They're digging the bloody thing up as we speak, forcing Clan Fester slaves to do the tunneling. Even worse, the damn monolith is currently beyond our means to destroy. However, Olesya, that clever old girl, has at least found a way to bury the foul thing. So, listen closely...
~ Franz Lohner


The Heroes are looking for an underground Nurgle dig-site, where the Skaven are helping the Rotbloods to uncover the Monolith of Ghûlmagak. The heroes must collapse the cavern by destroying the clusters called Nurgle Boubles which keep the Chaos acting as support beams vines alive.



The players find themselves in a cavern with three caves infested with clusters of Nurgle goop. The players must go through the caves one by one and destroy the clusters in order to collapse the cave. Throughout the event Enemy hordes spawn, including Berserkers. After destroying all the clusters, the heroes escape through a collapsing cave leading to the Bridge of Shadows.


So the Monolith's buried? I suppose that was well enough done, but considering the collective amount of heroism in this group, I expected a bit more. Can't say what exactly, but truly great heroes never settle for delivering exactly what you want.. They go one step further, and give you something more previous - something you didn't even realize you truly wanted. Next time, try to surprise an old woman, eh? Now, speaking of surprises, we have one planned for the Rotblood Champion, but I'm afraid it's quite urgent, so go talk to Lohner as soon as you are ready.
