Part two of The Traitor Curse is due to arrive sometime next month. Before the holiday period. As well as continuing the events set up in part one, it brings some tweaks and new content, among other things. Best of all, it’s absolutely free. Because serving the God Emperor is a right, not a privilege, natch.
