Battle Report: The Temple of Ba’al

After exploring the Mausoleum the Templars met a cloaked figure who called himself Horark the Black. He was later identified as the leader of the 7 Skaven Tribes. He gave them a message for their God-Emperor Sigmar, which whom he seeks a secret alliance against the forces of the Red Prince. The Templars gave their word to deliver the message, even though there was a lot of discussion afterwards if the God-Emperor should be disturbed by the message of a walking rat(king).
Horark also gave them the location of one of the four Seals of Death: It was under the protection of a high ranking undead called Lord Karsakas. His stronghold was in the lower levels of a ruined keep which was converted into a temple of the Red Prince, the mighty demon god Ba’al.
The templars decided to charge into the stronghold after resting the night. A mighty battle concurred, bringing the group closely to the grasp of death.

In the end the Templars were victorious but their victory was bitter sweet, since Lord Karsakas (and the Seal of Death) was nowhere to be found. The search for him and the other seals of death continues.
