Following leads from their previous adventures, the Characters travel to the great fortress-city of Middenheim. Along the way, they hear of trouble brewing in the city. On arrival they find that, behind the boisterous cheer of Middenheim’s famed Carnival, sinister forces are at work. A raft of new taxes has alienated several groups that have always been crucial to the city’s defence; tensions between the Imperial cult of Sigmar and the local faith of Ulric regularly boil over into violence; and at least two Chaos cults are gnawing away at the city’s social and political fabric.
