Your characters arrived in Nuln three months ago to launch adventuring careers. After several adventures in Nuln, you were contacted by mysterious group of vampire hunters called “The Andanti” who asked you to look into the emergence of a new religious cult called “The Crusade of the Child” in the far-off city of Marienburg. For unknown reasons, the cult was supposed to be important to vampires. You arrived in Marienburg after successfully fending off the attack of a group of Dark Elves on the river. In Marienburg, you investigated the cult and found out that it was centered on the figure of a child named Karl, who was supposed to be Sigmar reincarnated. You discovered that the child was actually born to a mutant and raised in an orphanage run by sisters of the healing goddess, Shallya. You tracked the Crusade of the Child on its path from Marienburg to the imperial capital of Altdorf, where the Crusade would seek recognition of Karl’s divinity from church officials. Before reaching Altdorf, you followed the clues to a small town called Pfeifeldorf, where you picked up further clues and had a showdown in a mausoleum with a group of vampires. From there, you continued on your way to Altdorf, where you met the encampment of the Crusade, helped to fight off an attack of vampires and ghouls who were trying to get at Karl, and then met Karl personally. Several of you fell under the spell of Karl’s charismatic aura.
