A Matter of Discretion
Ioannes Krieger was a famous and ruthless witchhunter who was also an agent of the SAC or Society Against Corruption.
In The King Is Near, the heroes are drafted by Aelfred the Half-Dead to investigate Ioannes’s disappearance. In the course of the adventure, the heroes discover his head tossed into an outhouse in the village of Stregovich.
Ioannes’s head is returned to Aelfred in Krovas and supplies some of the information for the party and Aelfred to piece together what happened in Stregovich— the birth of a fearful occult king, born of witch and pagan god. After this, the corrupted head was destroyed mercifully and righteously by Aelfred.
