Some of the adventurers slept in after a night of battle. Carl Kell and Luidolf Desfleuve witness, that Seiboldt and his entourage is leaving the inn, but first they had to wake up Margat Chaoseater who slept in the door arch of the inn.
Before the group leaves, the elven leader Coriael asks Carl about the crusade and the boy, but before she could make her point they get interupted by Luidolf.
The elves offer them to escort the group through the forest, since it will take about 1.5 days to reach Calden. The group agrees and they journey on (Carl finds books about Sigmar in his backpack and wonders how they got there).
During the journey, Coriael fills Carl in about their plans to extract the child and bring it to Athen Loren – where the boy will be safe from the world, and in return, the world will be safe from him. Carl is not sure about this.
Coriael finds in Kite, a.k.a Markus Mudgeboren an ally, as she promises to get rid off his burn mark, that identifies him as a criminal. He agrees to become her eyes and ears among the humans and report to her, so the elves can extract the child.
They make a night camp somewhere on the way. Margat starts a fire to warm himself, although the elves dont like it since there are still beastmen around. The night goes by with no incident. Markus has a nightmare about being trapped in a house and Lady Reiva is watching him.
They reach Calden (the elves do not enter the small village). The group learns that half of the population of Calden joined the Crusade, which passed through 3 days ago and went to Scheinfeld. Margat Chaoseater speaks with one of the boys of the inn and learns that his mother went with the crusade – he misses her. They agree to make the days journey at once and rest on the way, but as they are about to leave, a group of Ulrican knights rides in – escorting the coach of Seiboldt.
Seiboldt is in handcuffs – the leader of the knights, Sir Arnold von Eisenbach, states that he follows orders of the Baroness von Goethe. She ordered to bring in all stranglers, especially sigmarites. A shallyan priestess was attacked and with the crusade of heretics around, they suspect it was a sigmarite. The group suspects if to was the priestess that joined the crusade near Salfen.
Sir Arnold offers Luidolf to come with them to Castle Scheinfeld as a guest of the baroness or suffer the same fate as Seiboldt. The group decides to ride with the knights. Sir Arnold tells them they will make the journey next morning since a snow storm is coming.
From Sir Arnold they learn, that his brother Sir Wilhelm, is riding to the camp of the crusade to arrest its leaders. Originally they came down to Scheinfeld to hunt down a host of beastmen.
Margat Chaoseater points out that this is not a good idea, but Sir Arnold doesnt want to hear about it – his brother is a devout follower of Ulric. They also learn that the crusade set up camp about 45 mins away from Castle Scheinfeld. The Baroness sent them a message – if they come any closer, the Castle will open fire on them!
Nils tells them that Seiboldt was eager to find the Crusade, but the coach broke down on the way and the knights picked them up. Since Seiboldt argued with the knights, he got arrested. One more bad thing that happened to Seiboldt – recently he ran into Luthor Huss who used him as an example for what is wrong with the Church of Sigmar.
NIls is happy to see Margat again. That evening Margat asks Nils to read books to him!
During night, Kite, a.k.a Markus Mudgeboren sneaks into the nearby woods to meet with Coriael. He reports where the Crusade is camping and that they will move to Castle Scheinfeld on the next day.
