Requiem for a Spanish Agent: Wolfaert Meijer

Wolfaert Meijer was one of the Villains that the heroes faced at the Siege of Bergen op Zoom. Meijer was a Spanish Agent, a spy and saboteur who was the mastermind behind several plots to bring about the fall of the town to the Spanish besiegers. Eventually he was killed by a hail of grapeshot fired from a cannon by the Foul Corsair (a former pirate). Meijer had already escaped capture several times, to the intense frustration of the PCs, and in the latest battle had dodged several musket and pistol shots. (The Near Miss rules work just as well for Villains as for Heroes.) So as the Corsair fired he shouted, "Dodge this!" Unfortunately for Meijer a hail of grapeshot is difficult to dodge and he was out of Fortune Points.

Rest in peace, Wulfaert Meijer.
