Plot points/Scenes

Willhelm & Ale is present when Birgin returns to Aachen. He has the black dragon scale on his forehead, and a red dragon scale on his throat.   By this time, Emon Kanis has rounded up the silver he wanted and demands he leaves. Birgin is only too happy and tells them that he is now going south to an ancient repository of power hidden from the lesser races. There he will look to resurrect the dragons to their glory if all goes well, especially since he now has the scales, and map to where it lies.   If questioned, he will say it lies north of a city that had it's repository burned by the Romans, and never fully restored. He'll mention that he will hate getting there due to the heat, and that beings who had worshipped serpents & dragons will help him too.   The place he mentions is the Black Pyramid, and the other is Alexandria.   Both Willhelm & Ale will have to figure out what Birgin means and if they can beat him there if need be.   While this happens they may be attacked by an assassin sent by the Saxons. Also there is a mention by Birgin that he spotted a heavily cowled figure from behind the undead army watching the whole thing while on a zombie horse. Near the end he vanish and Birgin thought he saw the character entering the city to the east.   They have the chance as well of finding out that this is a test of the weaker troops of the Necrocult and that the majority of forces were held back. Another attack seems unlikely but other actions may be took instead and the threat still there. Scrying may reveal that the Necrocult is devising more powerful creatures to sow terror in Europe as a whole and many have already been sent out ready for use. Also, elements of Star God Cults have been found in slightly larger numbers amongst the troops, and sightings of aberrations have increased at least  in glimpses, but nothing concrete as yet.
