Episode 13: Were Are We[edit | edit source]

The Party[edit | edit source]

(Anna) Evelyn - Human Paladin of Lathander

(Holly) Strix - Tiefling Sorcerer

(ProJared) Diath - Human Rogue

(Nathan) Paultin - Human Bard

The Woods of Barovia[edit | edit source]

It is night time in the creepy forest. The heroes are near the wagon that jut caused Paultin to have a flashback.

Evelyn checks her werewolf bite. She rolls bad on her check. She knows nothing about lycanthropy. Evelyn reveals that she spent her time in paladin school drawing horses.

The group is worried about her turning into a werewolf. They want to tie her to a tree, but Evelyn doesn't want to do it. Evelyn has a quiet conversation with Strix. Strix confirms that they are friends, which makes Evelyn happy. Strix explains that Strahd is like Lathander - he's a Power similar to a god or a demon lord.

Diath climbs up a tree and sleeps on a branch. Strix sleeps in the wagon. So does Paultin. We confirm that Strix has the Strahd doll in her possession.

The Strahd Doll[edit | edit source]

Paultin hears a voice. It's Strahd. He says:

"You have nothing to fear from me. You are beloved to me. Do not be afraid. Join me. I would never hurt you. I owe a debt to your people. Forsake your friends. Join me."

The voice is coming from the Strahd doll.

Paultin swats it away. Strix named it Mr. Shambleface.

Evelyn's Transformation[edit | edit source]

Outside, Evelyn starts feeling connected to nature. Chris asks her to make a wisdom saving throw. She fails. Diath sees that Evelyn is thrashing.

Evelyn can hear Diath's heart pounding. Diath wakes up the others. Strix uses her driftglobe to cast light onto the scene.

The group urges Paultin to sing to her, hoping it will calm her down. He tries and rolls an 11. Not good! Evelyn's face shifts. Her skull is changing shape. She calls on Lathander for help.

Diath has an idea - he asks Paultin for his wine. Nope... Paultin drank it all.

Evelyn casts Nature's Wrath, and vines appear and completely ensnare her.

Diath wants to use the cart to pin Evelyn to the tree. The heroes try, but they fail their strength checks.

Evelyn turns into a werewolf.

Paultin is going to cast sleep on her. Nate needs to roll a number of dice and tally the results. The total needs to exceed Evelyn's hit point total for the spell to work. He rolls a total of 39 hit points. Evelyn has 40. Not enough.

Strix uses sorcery points to give herself a spell slot. She casts hold person. Anna points out that the last time Strix used this spell, somebody died. Anna rolls a saving throw.. natural 20!

Werewolf Evelyn can't get out of her bonds. Apparently, her werewolf form looks similar to a pomeranian.

The group wants to try another song. Paultin tries sleep again. This time, it works.

Surprise Attack[edit | edit source]

Suddenly, someone stabs Strix from behind. The blade goes right through her chest. Blood comes out of her mouth. The attacker is a 14-year-old boy. His eyes are wells of madness.

It's the evil son of the Burgomaster of Krezk. A few sessions back, it was revealed that the Abbot raised him from the dead, but the boy became evil. He slit his own father's throat.

Diath lunges at the kid and almost kills him with a single shot. The kid strikes back and stabs Diath, who shouts "Uncanny Dodge!" and only takes four points of damage.

Strix freezes the kid's heart with a ray of frost. He's dead. Diath looks the dead kid in the face and says, "You fucked up."

Diath loots the corpse. He's got a black lock - a trinket.

Diath is worried that the kid is going to come back to life. Strix grabs Evelyn's axe, Lightfall, and chops the frozen kid into pieces.

The rest of the night is uneventful. Evelyn shifts back to normal. A few tears of blood trickle from her eyes.

Morning[edit | edit source]

Evelyn wakes up and she sees Paultin is watching her. She wakes up gentle and delicate, like Sleeping Beauty. Paultin is not impressed.

Paultin kicks Strix awake.

Evelyn's senses seem permanently enhanced. She can smell a stream nearby. Anna calls them her "newfound, acute senses."

She takes a bath in a stream and catches the scent of grapes. The heroes realize that the Wizard of Wines is close.

The group heads there. As they get close, they spot a man in a black cloak moving among the trees.

Strix and Diath debate how to approach this person. Evelyn shouts out, "Hello, friend!" He flees but eventually the group meet him and his family.

His name is Davian Martikoff. He owned the winery, but recently, the place has been attacked by crazy druids from Yester Hill and their plant creatures. The group assures him that they'll try to help him.

The waffle crew checks out the vineyard. They see a number of creatures made of wood heading toward them - more than a dozen!

The creatures move slow and it's raining, so they are not particularly combustible. Strix senses that they're being controlled and smartly thinks that if the group kills the druids, these blights might become inert.

The heroes go around the building and spot a druid through a window. The druids are in a room with a loading winch.

Diath jumps the druid, who is holding a special black staff. Half of the group is dangling from a rope on the winch.

Evelyn buries Lightfall in his skull. He's dead. The staff lands right at Strix's feet.
