Summary[ | ]

Episode 19[ | ]

 The Party[ | ]

(Anna) Evelyn - Human Paladin of Lathander

(Holly) Strix - Tiefling Sorcerer

(ProJared) Diath - Human Rogue

(Nathan) Paultin - Human Bard

(Aram Vartian) Emil Torescu - Mysterious Prisoner

Castle Ravenloft[ | ]


Paultin is in a prison cell, up to his chest in cold water. He's been here for over a day. Someone whacked him with a broom and knocked him out.

Someone else is in a cell across from him. It's Emil, a brooding but agreeable fellow prisoner.

The jailer is a mongrelfolk. Paultin casts suggestion on him. The suggestion spell works and he convinces the mongrelfolk to let him out.

Diath's Plan[ | ]

Meanwhile, in the Amber Temple, Strix figures out that Paultin was a simulacrum (a magical clone made of snow an ice). Strix checks out the avalanche that is blocking the exit to the Amber Temple. It's not snow.. it's rocks.

Diath wants to stealthily get up to that statue that almost killed the group last time. After much debate, they decide to let Diath give it a try to stealth. The group teases him about being 18 years old now thanks to that potion he drank.

Zombie Attack[ | ]

Emil and Paultin are free from their cells and are wading through water. suddenly, zombies rise up and attack them.

Paultin casts thunderwave, blasting them away and hitting Emil, too. The sound of the spell is deafening. They eventually destroy the zombies.

Emil and Paultin come to a room with a bunch of gems in it and magical flames. Emil notices that Paultin's shadow is moving weirdly, but he keeps it to himself.

There's a rhyme here that explains that the gems can be used to teleport people to different areas of Barovia if a gem is thrown into the flames. Violet leads to the mountain's spire. Emil throws the violet one into the flames.

The Amber Golem[ | ]

Diath finds signs that there is a giant creature is somewhere in this place. He finds it - a gigantic animated statue made of amber. Diath runs. Strix turns Evelyn into a cloud. Diath hides. No, now he's running. Diath and the statue are heading right for the room where Strix is.

Strix casts alter self. She makes herself look like Strahd! She makes a deception check... rolls a 19.

The Flames[ | ]

Back in Castle Ravenloft, Emil passes into the magic fire and disappears. Paultin is alone. A door opens. It's... Kasimir!

Kasimir says, "The Master wants to see you. Come with me if you want to live."

Chris points out that the portal is going to fade soon. Paultin is trying to decide what to do. After much deliberation, he decides to go see Strahd.

The players are shocked that he did that. He could have just escaped through the flames. That's where they stop.
