Party track him from the Lodge to Geissbach, Ubersreik and then to Stromdorf. whilst in Ubersreik they pick up a further commission to find a merchant Florian Wechsler, who went to Stromdorf so weeks back and has not returned.
Stromdorf is wet, very wet. It never seems to stop raining. In tracking down both the party discover that both suffered the same fate. They were drugged by Keila Cobblepot, then sold to the Holtz family. When the party confront the Holtz the party are informed that they use these people as “sacrafices” to the beastman tribe in the Oberslecht, to prevent the tribe from attacking Stromdorf.
The Holtz are actually in league with the beastman Shaman Foaldeath. With the help of the townsfolk, rallied by the towns Priest Lector Magnus Gottschalk, the beastman are attacked and beaten at the Battle of the Oberslecht. Foaldeath and Marie Holtz escape. Herman dies in the battle.
The party find that the beastman had been worshipping some formof marblesslab that attracted lightning to it and had been strapped to the top of their Herdstone. This is The Lightning Stone, which they bring back to Stromdorf.
This brings them to the attention of Niklas Schulmann, who asks them to locate further stones as the Lightening Stone is only a part.
