Paths of the Damned, a WFRP 2e Campaign
Deranged Witch Hunter
Antonius Reik has a reputation as being a staunch enemy of chaos within The Empire. He traveled with Grand Theogonist Volkmar’s crusade against the forces of the Storm of Chaos, and was witness to the destruction and torment of the Imperial force. After that he became unhinged and found that he was subject to uncontrollable fits of rage and unending images of torment that filled his head, both night and day. He sought treatment along with the priest Hans Von Duefenshmirtz at the Shallyan hospital known as the Wolingwut. He soon found that the staff at the Wolingwut were in league with Chaos and was able to engineer a revolt against the staff and seized power at the Hospital. When the group arrived a chaos ritual was put into motion and a beastman attack swarmed the hospital. With the help of the group and the other inmates they were able to hold off the waves of beastmen and ultimately destroy the hospital and it’s threat of chaos. Antonius then went to the local town of Klimgart and began a purge of all those he suspected were in league with the Wolingwut hospital. This included several members of the town and a kindly old woman that the group disagreed with him on. Shortly after the fires began to roast the flesh of the citizens of Klimgart the group took their leave of Antonius Reik.
