|Against the Grain|
|Act 3 Part 1|
|“||Rotblood raiding parties are cutting loose in the fields around Ussingen. I don't need to tell you what that means for the poor bastards in their path. You're heading to Morgensloft, biggest farm in the area. If there are survivors - and I hope there are - you'll find 'em held captive there. Do what you can, every prisoner freed is one less slave used by the enemy. And, repay the dead in kind, if you follow...||„|

|“||I've had reports of the Rotbloods foraging parties in the vicinity of Ussingen. Now, that's bad enough, but it turns out some folks were too stubborn to show their clean pair of wheels when it all went south. Now, we can't sit by as those crotchety old fools are being shipped to Helmgart and to be used as fodders for the Skittergate in one way or another. Make your way to Morgensloft Farm and save as many as you can.||„|

Synopsis[edit | edit source]
First Event[edit | edit source]
In order to access a locked barn the players must locate a key and use it on the door. Doing so will release a Monster.
Finale[edit | edit source]
The heroes find caged humans in a town and must release all of them. After the humans are free the players may escape through the Bridge of Shadows.
Post-Mission[edit | edit source]
After completing Against the Grain, Oleysa will say the following.
|“||Ah, there you are. Good. Saving a few lost wretches might not sound like much, but it all helps. The prisoners were to be used as slave labour to work on the Skittergate, clearing debris and excavating new tunnels. This means we've delayed the completion of that cursed gate at least a little bit. Now, let's talk about the Rotbloods, and more specifically, their Champion. His name is Bödvarr Ribspreader and his horde is laying waste to the countryside. I think Kruber laid his lovely eyes on him just before your daring escape from the Grey Seer's paws. We must stop this fiend, but I'm ashamed to say I don't even have his main camp located yet. *sigh* But trust me, I am working on it.||„|
