Party learns that the town watch is on the look out for all Dwarves and Elves in town, and probably any other non-humans too.
Party abandons the Journey’s End Inn, hiding in cloaks and hoods, and uses the sewers to reach the Berebeli.
Party warns Elvyra Kleinestun, and she flees town. She identifies Karl Teugen’s cause of death as possible Purple Brain Fever.
Otter (as Kastor) cold-calls at various councilmember’s homes, pretending to be a member of the Ordo Septenarius, spreading some minor confusion over their meeting plans, despite not really knowing what those plans are.
Party plans to lure a cultist into the sewers and force the plot out of them. Their first possibility is the elderly, friendly Councillor Friedrich Magirius. Then beat him and bully him in the sewers.
Magirius is horrified that the Ordo Septenarius has Chaos affiliations, and agrees to help the party uncover them fully.
Otter (as Kastor) and Magirius meet with Dieter, manservant to Graf Wilhelm von Saponatheim, to warn them of the Ordo’s ritual. Dieter runs off to inform the Graf.
Magirius tells the party he will attend that evening’s cult meeting and send them word at the Berebeli when he has new information about the midnight ritual.
Messenger gets party to come to Magirius’s home, where they are framed for his murder. All escape to the sewers, except for Otter, who is arrested and thrown into jail. Magirius had scrawled either “WHSE 13” or “WHSE 17” using his own blood, with his dying moments.
In jail, Otter gets Dieter Barl to represent him, only to have Barl reveal he is a member of the Ordo Septenarius. He submits a false confession on Otter/Kastor’s behalf.
The rest of the party return to the river, to see the Graf’s barge slipping off into the night. An attempt to get a horse to chase the barge down with ends in another chase by the watch into the sewers.
