Episode 6: All Will Be Well
RictavioThe crew enters Vallaki and they spot Rictavio's wagon of wonders. Evelyn gets excited and the group goes to check it out. Evelyn knocks and loudly inquires about the wonders. They hear a commotion inside - wood cracking.
A tall, heavily-muscled woman approaches and warns the heroes not to go into the wagon. Her name is Dee. Dee is 6 1/2 feet tall, she has dark hair and scars all over her face. Apparently she is part of Rictavio's show - she's a strongwoman.
Strix helps out in the kitchen. She spots a waffle maker!
- Evelyn: The Holy Symbol of Ravenkind is in Argynvostholt.
- Diath: The Tome of Strahd is in The Amber Temple.
- Paultin: Ezmerelda is in St. Markovia's Abbey.
- Strix: The Sunsword is in a bone ossuary in Castle Ravenloft.
Strix talks to Rictavio alone and intimidates him, warning him that if he doesn't help the group, they're stuck here. Rictavio tells her that he's cursed by the vistani and if he helps them, they are doomed.
Paultin is drunk and can't remember his reading. Evelyn remembers. Chris gives her inspiration for that.
The group goes back downstairs, and they spot some menacing town guards nearby. Diath detects a secret door (he rolled a natural 20 on his check) and the group slips through.
A guard spots them and calls out for the group to halt, but they shut the door and go down the hall. The group ends up going through a few rooms and they peer outside the inn.
They spot Izek and a bunch of guards outside. One of Izek's arms is huge, red and demonic. The group tries to keep out of sight and creep away. Dee goes out there and tries to distract the guards with a card trick. Izek questions her, sees through her deception and we roll initiative.
The group comes out to help.
The Battle Against Izek
Paultin casts invisibility on Strix. She calls out to Izek and tells him that she's his sister. She casts mage armor and becomes visible. Izek stops the fight, runs up and awkwardly hugs her. That's where we stop.
