The Path of Kane

The Game is Afoot

Seeking more information on the gems of power, Isabella decides to seek the aid of Andrew Blackwood, Professor of Greek at Cambridge. He has been driven to Peterhouse college due to his unconventional studies in Plato’s Atlantis. He suggests these gems the heroes seek might in fact be unfinished orichalcum, a rare metal unique to the island of Atlantis.

The heroes discover news of recent disappearances of both a Cambridge student and a local deputy marshalman. With the aid of Blackwood and the town marshal, they track these disappearances to the nearby village of Alberny, and a rogue called Rooster, proprietor of the Cock of the Walk gaming house and the Sunset House brothel. In the battle with Rooster’s thugs, the rogue manages to escape into the night. The deputy marshalman is rescued and a potential scandal among Cambridge students is averted.

In their prospective paths of research, both Wilhelm and Isabella hear the tale of Baron Von Staler of the Black Forest. They set off on the road to book passage on a ship to the German Empire, where they might learn the truth behind The Castle of the Devil

The Red Vengeance

Driven by strange dreams, Isabella and Wilhelm journey to the small British village of Torkertown, where they uncover a conspiracy to defraud the family of Roger Ivens. The scandal has already claimed the life of Ivens. His widow, now destitute, prepares to flee Torkertown to live with her sister’s family in Bristol.

One by one, the conspirators have been found dead, from exposure, it is said. But our heroes discovered the disturbing truth: that it is in fact the vengeful spirit of Roger Ivens who is waylaying these men on the road. Setting things right, they manage to save one of the conspirators and force restitution upon him, awarding the widow Ivens a considerable sum to ease her grief and make her journey to Bristol easier.

That night, Isabella and Wilhelm share a dream of the stooped shaman, N’Longa, who bids them to seek out six gems of power hidden throughout the world. A great evil is stirring in the bowels of the earth and only the unified power of these artifacts can destroy it.
