Chronicles of the Schmalkaldic League 3&4: Omnibus Edition

The most interesting book ever to come out of Johanna Gutenberg's print shop in Heidelberg was the Complutensian Bible--a living, walking, hard candy-hating book of sacred scripture. Agents of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V immediately target the Bible for their own, chasing it to the demilitarized zone of the Hungarian plain where the fierce and intelligent cabbages called the Huzhon Frisee live. Called upon to rescue the Bible and confront the plans of the evil Margaret of Parma and Count Crimsyn, Grimhilda the Psychosomatic Poisoner and Aldo Krasplasian, Hungary's King of Puppets team up with Johanna Gutenberg and "Junker Jorg," the League's disinformation specialist. That's a lot of exposition!
