Empire of the Ghouls Session 6 – The Black Canton

I started work on the Empire of the Ghouls adventure path for Kobold Press just over two years ago, writing the overall outline with Wolfgang Baur, and then Chapter 2: The Holy Robes of Sister Adelind, and Chapter 6: The Pure City of Vandekhul

Now that the adventure has been released, I'm posting the brief session write ups I’ve been doing for my players in our monthly Empire of the Ghouls campaign. 

In our sixth  session, we continued with Chapter 2 of Empire of the Ghouls, The Holy Robes of Sister Adelind. Here's the write up which contains spoilers for the campaign.
