The Journal of Erich Weiss – Pt. 1

Thor's journal is dense with notes, meticulously copied images and information about Der Heilige Flamme des Törzburg.  Much of the journal is devoted to information about the Teutonic Order, possible sources of information (such as the Vatican), and introspective think pieces that, while interesting, do not help you with your current mission. Skimming quickly, Seven and Röcke pull what information seems important to the task at hand.  These pages speak to the origin of the Holy Flame, stories regarding its use and, thankfully, notes on how to recover the artifact from the cathedral.  With much to mull over, the team prepares to move out.
GM Notes:
  • There will be a second installment of pages from the Journal before you arrive at the Cathedral.  I will say that there are some floor plans of the Cathedral in the coming pages.
  • I will clarify where I can or let you know that more info is coming on a specific topic, but these are the personal notes of a man for whom the Holy Flame was a lifelong passion.  As such, they are notes to himself, not a how-to guide for complete strangers.  Make the most of what you have.
  • I still need to know what path you plan on taking to the Cathedral.  We can be moving and resolving that before you get the rest of the pages.

  • OOC: I see no reason not to strike out cross-country in a bee-line for Marienburg. The terrain should be easy going.

    Once we get to Marienburg, things become trickier. We were able to walk around in Danzig without much trouble and Marienburg might be no different. Unless the city is really locked down, I suggest we just walk to our destination as if we’re going about our business. Unless, that is, we want to drag along a couple of machine guns; those might draw stares. Bob, just how “fishy” are our fishermen’s outfits? Are anyone’s clothes badly bloodstained?

    It’s a long shot, but we should scour Thor’s journal for any clues about how to contact other members of his order in Marienburg.

    Cracking open the cathedral cornerstone may be the most ticklish bit coming up.

  • Maybe we will be lucky and the war has opened the cornerstone for us 😉

    OOC: DId anyone else grab any German uniforms?? Might be handy to be a German soldier to get close to the Cathedral…especially if its being watched by Germans.

  • “What are we going to do with him?” Seven gestures toward the German officer.

  • “Merde!” Lucky mutters to himself as keeps vigil outside, “what is keeping them?!”

  • We certainly can’t drag this officer along, and Suez isn’t too comfortable with the thought of adding out-and-out murder of a prisoner to our repertoire. If we leave him bound and gagged in an abandoned barn, someone should find him within a day or two. If that turns out to be the Polish resistance … c’est la guerre. If it’s Germans, we should be well on our way out of the neighborhood before they can do much about it, if we’re on the ball. At least, that’s the theory.

  • OCC: So nobody saw my post in the last post in part 3?!?!

  • OOC: Nope. At this point Lucky is outside standing guard attempting notice anyone approaching. If we are going to whole up here until dawn, then we should probably plan a rotation for watch, otherwise we should probably keep getting more distance away from where we were. I suspect they’ll eventually figure out we’ve crossed the river, find some tracks, and get some dogs.

  • OOC: Oh, and Lucky is bloodthirsty, he’d rather cut the German’s throat and move on rather than dragging his ass around the countryside. But, he is also loyal, so he’ll accept whatever direction we take…but if the bastard makes the wrong move, he’s dead.

  • Rocke: Apparently I did, pushed it all down into my subconscious, then came to this page and repeated everything you wrote as if they were my thoughts. So take all of my comments here as “I agree with Rocke.”

  • Seven agrees with Suez/Rocke.
