In my game the Meromann council was planning for months to retake Wailer's Hold. If they succeed the plan is for the clan to reestablish their kingdom and rebuild their great city. The players then got the same idea and after hearing some rumors went to join the council in their efforts.
The Hold was infested with a large host of deamons and rust brothers with Menderel (general of the military branch) in charge. They had opened a small nexus there and fortified their position in order to defend it. The players' mission was to sneak in to castle, kill Menderel and close the nexus if able. The council ordered them to join a small team of commando dwarfs with Arvia (of the Krombs) leading them.
The mission succeeded in the end, but the players were captured and sacrificed to bloodling deamons. They were rescued however by something or someone and instead of being viciously killed by deamons they were granted safe passage through the nexus and ended up in one of Merigall's prisons. With Menderel dead, his closest man Denderel took his chance and became the new military leader of the rust church.
My players have escaped the prison and have not yet discovered if the council was actually successful or not, so I will not write it here yet
