WFRP3 - Darkness and Light in the Empire

A Trial and A Hanging

Father Magnus, I never thought I’d see the day when corruption would hit the city from within. Yes, the Holtzes were always strange. I am a little ashamed to admit that as kids we used to sneak up in their farm and throw rocks at them and run. Everybody disliked them. But still, to sacrifice a traveler, maybe more than one to Beastmen? And the Eigels were always well liked as was this halfling cook, at least that is what I heard. All this on the same day as the death of my mother, Sigmar bless her soul. What did you think of the Trial? I think the Captain handled himself well. It seemed very fair to me, especially since we already knew they were guilty. Do you know this Apothecary that the halfling said was behind it all? Otto, I think his name was. I don’t know. He certainly seemed surprised when he was put under arrest. Maybe the Halfling was making it all up, to save her own skin, little good it did her. But they wouldn’t have arrested him if he wasn’t guilty, right?. Anyway, I was glad to see the others hang, given what they were guilty of.
Yes, the priest of Morr was a little rude, but has helped me with mother. I think it is just his way. I think perhaps he doesn’t follow Sigmar. Of course he is a Priest of Morr, but don’t all Priests in the Empire follow Sigmar, even if they also worship another god?

We will take mother to the Garden later this afternoon. As it turns out there are several others staying at the Thunderwater that also have business there, so we will go together. Do you see that Dwarf over there standing next to the man in the cloak? He is a wizard, a Grey, I think. They are going to look for a stone of some kind. I don’t really understand why but I know Valdric the Morrite is not happy about it for some reason. And that strong looking one beside them needs to identify a body. Apparently he is a boatman on the barge that crashed into the West Bridge a couple days ago. I think they say its his captains body.
Thank you again Father, it was a wonderful Service. My mother would be very pleased. After our trip to the Garden, can I come back and help you in the temple? It would be good to hear some of your stories again.
