...terrible plans are afoot. A notorious painting, said to be a powerful artifact, has vanished - and the trail leads straight to the palace of the mad emperor, where it lies guarded by a clockwork monster of steam and iron. Now the city's spiritual factions - priests, rabbis, knights, and sorcerers - are at war, vying to steal back the painting. You and your comrades must enter the emperor's subterranean Wunderkammer, do battle with its magical guardians, and recover the mysteries of the ascended Magdalene... or die trying.
