Battle Report: The Tower of the Necromancer

Some months ago I played the seventh scenario of my rogue trader (Pulp Alley rules) campaign.

Background:

Night. Somewhere in a deep forest of Sylvania.

The Necromancer was annoyed...
His undead servants brought bad news:
Some unwelcome visitors were coming.
Who could dare to disturb his studies?
Maybe some boring Witch Hunter or worse... maybe another necromancer...
He was so close to finally find the Key of Graciale!
Fine. he thought. The intruders will learn that is dangerous to cause the disappointment of a necromancer...

The inquisitor and his retinue were looking at the creepy tower overhanging the trees.
Arago: "Then that is the forbidden tower shunned by the superstitious natives...
There we should find the necromancer that know where the Key of Graciale is hidden... Maybe our quest is finally close to an end...
Follow me my loyal companions, it's time to fullfill our duty..."
