New Friends[ | ]

Paultin tries to make friends with Murderbot. Paultin casts suggestion on Murderbot to make friends.

The group argues about whether it is safe to keep Murderbot around. Strix is so creeped out that she insists that she is going to go sleep out in the blizzard. The group calls her bluff and she goes outside to get some air.

The owlbear is outside, right by the door. The Owlbear is out there! The owlbear tackles Strix, gets her in a bear hug and drags her into the snow.

Paultin comes outside and tries to cast sleep, but it has no effect.

Strix has five waffles in her robe. She throws one. The owlbear runs after it.

Strix crawls back into the lodge. Evelyn insists that the group try to befriend the owlbear. Murderbot goes outside and shoots a dart into it. The owlbear collapses. It's asleep. Murderbot apparently has two types of darts. Some kill, and some have a sleep poison.

Evelyn uses her incredible strength and the aid of her trusty steed Mourning Glory to drag the owlbear in to the stables. Strix gives aid with an enlarge/reduce spell.

Werewolves[ | ]

The next day, the group is fully rested and they discuss what to do next. Zog says that he is on a mission to deliver a message to Citadel Adbar, a dwarven stronghold. The group decides to go with him.

While the heroes are getting ready to leave, werewolves arrive at the lodge. It is Emil, the werewolf who escaped Castle Ravenloft with Paultin.[1] Emil is accompanied by his wife, who the group hadn't met before.

They have come to warn the group that other werewolves from Barovia have come here to take back the Strahd doll.

The werewolves will be here soon. Emil says that the group's best bet to fend off the attackers is to become werewolves themselves. Evelyn is overjoyed at the prospect of becoming a werewolf once more.

Strix is going to cast remove curse when it is over to remove the lycanthropy.

Sprawling Battle[ | ]

The werewolves arrive and attack. As the battle progress, it spills out of the lodge and everyone is scattered. Murderbot shoots a dart at them but they are immune to non-magical attacks. Strix says, "Sorry, those darts only kill children."

A creature dominates Paultin and orders him to get the Strahd doll and to hand it over.

Diath runs to help Strix. As Diath runs past Paultin, the bard feels compelled to make an opportunity attack.

Paultin hits Diath, who uses uncanny dodge to take half damage.

Chris mentions that Paultin is indeed now casting a shadow. Paultin had thought he had destroyed it with the sunsword. The shadow he is casting is no different than any other shadow, as far as he can tell.

Strix is in gaseous form. She has the Strahd doll on her, making it impossible for the werewolves or Paultin to snatch it from her. which is protecting her from the would-be puppet snatchers. She becomes corporeal and races into the lodge to take cover near the owlbear.

Outside, someone has come to help. It's the legendary drow hero, Drizzt Do'Urden. End of session.
