Sir Arkibald Clemente

Sir Arkibald Clemente was a mercenary captain and former templar in the pay of the adventurer’s arch-nemesis, Baron Pleskai von Wallenstein of Würzen. Clemente was hired as part of Wallenstein’s ploy to become Grandmaster of the Knights of Sigmar’s Blood. Clemente’s price was the right to kill Tankred Konigstadt, who was a contender for the title of Grandmaster, as he a decade before exiled Clemente from the Knights of Sigmar’s Blood.

The adventurer’s finally confronted him at the Eternal Watch Temple at the Black Fire Pass, where he and a group of mercenaries tried to assassinate Tankred. The adventurers were awarded the Tears of Ghal Maraz – amulets forged from the molten metal left from the strikes of the legendary hammer.

Clemente is a tall broad shouldered fighting man with a commanding voice and a clean shaven head. He is past 40 years old and has spent the last 8 as mercenary captain of the company The Laughing Men. His face bears many scars and his eyes are grey and steely. He is a feared man with many enemies, so he rarely appears during the day. He is an outcast Templar of Sigmar’s Blood, after he charged pilgrims money for protection and then refused to protect them from orks. He is also a close ally of Wallenstein, who has promised him revenge. He has since been involved in many deposing of nobles and had a stint in the Border Princes.
The Laughing Men is – in certain circles – a fairly well known mercenary company numbering about 100, which has done quite a bit of fighting in the South, in the Border Princes, among other places.

Bartollus Pfrommer – asylum keeper and priest of Nurgle

Bartollus Pfrommer was the keeper of the asylum in Wolfenburg, where the group was investigating attempts of sabotage against the Empire army encamped there.  The new member of the group wizard apprentice Stefan Zauber was throughly surprised, when he questioned Bartollus to deeply – by himself – and was attacked by the nurgle priest and his thugs. Stefan made good use of his knuckleduster and streetfighting skills from Altdorf, and survived but Bartollus escaped during the fight.

His asylum is a place of disease and madness. The building is made of stone and has three stories. All windows are small and barred and the only door in is a thick gate. The building is large, almost 25 yards by 25 yards. The gate is guarded day and night by one of the thugs. Another two patrol the halls every hour or so. The inside of the building is dark, damp and maze-like. It smells of human waste and there is the constant sound of madness, metal clanking on the bars, screaming etc.

Bartollus has his office and chambers at the top floor along with his men. Here he can receive guests, other priests and the like.
From the kitchen on the ground floor there is a secret staircase to the cellar below, where Bartollus has his temple to the Lord of Pestilence. The secret stair is marked with a small inversed hammer etched into the stone.
