The Tome of Strahd
The heroes are in the library. They discover the Tome of Strahd. Strix is going to use mage hand to pick it up. Suddenly, an amber golem becomes visible. The group slips back through the crack and escapes before the golem can attack them.
The heroes examine the tome. It has a locked clasp. Diath tries to pick the lock and rolls a 28. Nothing!
Diath remembers that he has a mysterious set of keys given to him by a stranger long ago. He tries one of keys in the lock. It works! One of the keys opens the lock. Diath explains to the group that when he was a beggar, a mysterious person gave him the keys.
The group wonders if Strahd somehow gave the keys to him.
Paultin in Castle Ravenloft
Chris is back. The group goes and talks to the lich. The group finds the lich's spell book.
Back in the castle, Escher really wants to drink a bit of Paultin's blood. Paultin is able to convince the vampire spawn to hold off on that. Escher leaves. There's a raven at the window. It's Falkon the wereraven.
Falkon hides outside the window. Escher comes back in the room and suggestively feeds Paultin a scone. Paultin casts suggestion and apparently succeeds. He suggests that Escher should stop being loyal to Strahd.
The Curse of Lycanthropy
Back in the temple, Barmy the lich's spell book has remove curse. Evelyn kind of wants to remain as a werewolf. The lich points out that Evelyn is only a half-werewolf. Once she kills a humanoid, she will be a full werewolf and she'll be immune to non-magic weapons.
"Seek out the sarcophagus of Zantras the Kingmaker and accept his gift. Then seek out Great Tarhok, the Five-Headed Destroyer. And then, finally, seek out the sarcophagus of Sykane the Soul Hungerer and accept his gift."
This doesn't sound right to the paladin. Evelyn makes an insight check. She realizes that the entity that answered her prayer is not Lathander. Then she hears a deep-throated voice laughing. Evelyn realizes that it is Strahd. She utters a Wrath of Khan-style "Strahd!"
Escape from Castle Ravenloft
Paultin convinces Escher to let them leave. Falkon goes into hybrid form. He tries to carry Paultin and fly away. They get out the window, but Falkon only rolls an 11 on his strength check. Paultin is too heavy. They will need to land in the courtyard.
Suddenly, three silver crossbow bolts plunge into Falkon. He takes a pile of damage and is dropped to 0 hit points.
Suddenly, the secret door to the library swings open. Six vampire spawn attack. That's where the session ends.
