The Party[ | ]

(Anna) Evelyn - Human Paladin of Lathander

(Holly) Strix - Tiefling Sorcerer

(ProJared) Diath - Human Rogue

(Nathan) Paultin - Human Bard

Return to the Winery[ | ]

Paultin administers a potion to Evelyn. Evelyn wakes up, hugs him and thanks him. She has a death grip on him.

Mourning Glory makes a kind of barfing noise. It always makes that noise.

The group heads back to the Wizard of Wines winery and meets with Davian and his family, the owners of the winery. Evelyn grabs their baby, Yolanda, and starts singing a country song about Lathander to it.

It is time for a long rest. The group chains Evelyn up in the basement of the winery, because she's a werewolf.

There's a wall covered in frost down there. Diath examines it and discovers a secret door. He opens it. Beyond it is a tunnel that leads to a cave. Evelyn figures out that brown mold is in there. It feeds on fire.

She goes in further. The entire cave is covered in brown mold. Evelyn fails a saving throw. The warmth is getting sucked out of her body. She takes 22 damage.

The group decides to leave the mold and they start drinking Purple Grapesmash number 5, a wine made at the winery. The whole group makes constitution checks.

Evelyn's Tracks[ | ]

When the group wakes up the next morning, Evelyn is gone. The chain snapped. Someone cut the chains. Her equipment is still in the cellar.

The heroes run around the winery looking for her. The group sees a door ajar in the room with the vats. They hear a scream upstairs. It is one of the Martikovs. The baby Yolanda is missing. The group gets nervous. Did Evelyn eat the baby?

The Martikovs are extremely angry. Paultin decides there's only one way to lighten the mood - he's going to play the bagpipes. The Martikovs shut it down.

The Martikovs turn into ravens - they are wereravens. They take flight and search the grounds.

The group continues searching the winery. They find Evelyn's pan flute.

Strix has Evelyn's mouse, Juniper. She sets it on the ground, hoping it will lead the group to Evelyn. They follow the mouse. They find tracks. They also find Evelyn's boots. They realize that Evelyn was in human form until this point.

Strix points out that if she ate the baby, she is going to be in big trouble with Lathander.

Diath sees Evelyn.. she's in mist. Her face and mouth are drenched in blood. She's dazed. She has no memory of the night before.

Where's the Baby?[ | ]

Davian flies down and demands to know where the baby is. Davian starts yelling at Evelyn.

The group follows her tracks to the edge of the vineyard outside. A man is coming down the road on an ashen white horse with glowing white eyes. Riding it is an elf with grey skin and black, long hair. He has something in his arms. It's the baby

The elf says he found the baby in the wolf's den. He says his name is Kasimir Belikov. He is seeking a hanged man. Evelyn points Diath out, to his chagrin.

He comes close to Diath. As the mysterious elf gets closer, Diath hears the screams of thousands of men. Strix and Paultin hear it too. It reminds Strix of the sound of the River Styx.

Kasimir says that Strahd captured his sister. Madam Eva told him that Diath could help rescue her. He says the Amber Temple can remove the curse. Strix wonders if the temple could remove Evelyn's curse, too.

Evelyn realizes that she has goat blood on her. She's relieved. Diath points out that there are no goats at the winery.

The heroes drop the baby off with the Martikovs and then they leave with Kasimir. They are going to check out the wolf den where he found the baby.

Undead Encounter[ | ]

Creatures are lurching out of the woods - zombies! They're covered with dirt. Apparently, they just crawled up out of the ground. They're coming from all directions.

Evelyn got no rest the last night. She heals herself with lay on hands.

Strix drops a fireball and slaughters them. She stands on a rock and laughs maniacally.

Kasimir thinks this is part of a trap set by Strahd. Evelyn says she wants to smite him from the face of the land and Strix begs her to stop saying his name out loud.

The group finds Evelyn's tracks and realize she was running around like a maniac and she basically exploded the goat. Kasimir urges the group that the curse must be removed.

Diath realizes someone else stole the baby. He thinks Kasimir did it, and the two get into an argument. Kasimir says, "Madam Eva put us together for a reason." He says that he will help the group defeat Strahd.

Anna smartly asks to make an insight check. She rolls well. He's lying!

Kasimir tells them his origin story. Strahd wanted to marry Kasimir's sister. He and some others stoned her to death. Strahd locked her remains in the castle and murdered all of the female elves in his clan, destroying their future.

They reluctantly decide to help Kasimir, and head back to the Martikovs to get some warm clothing for their upcoming journey to Tsolenka Pass. The Martikovs apologize for their earlier behavior, and Diath gives them two necklaces to repay them for all they have done for the party. The Martikovs take the necklaces happily, because they are part raven.

Stefania Marikov offers Evelyn a new black cloak to replace her torn white one. Evelyn doesn't like that it's black, but accepts anyway. Evelyn is now dressed in dark red, gold, and black.

The party mounts their steeds and head to Tsolenka Pass. That's where they stop.
