Summary[edit | edit source]
Episode 27: Thing in the Rug[edit | edit source]
The Party[edit | edit source]
Murderbot[edit | edit source]
The rug has a unicorn on it. Chris points out that this is not Strix 's style at all, and that it would look terrible in her hovel.
Rolled up in the rug is a humanoid. It's a short jester. He has a little club. Strix snatches it from him. He is a silent, evil little golem.
His eyes open. Evelyn senses evil coming from him. She commands him to no longer be evil. It doesn't seem to work.
Arabelle thinks he looks cool and wants to be friends with him. She asks him to find the hag pin. Diath has it. He says nothing.
Luvash declares that the evil toy is now the property of the heroes in a most gregarious manner. Jared wonders if they will one day turn him into a real boy.
Paultin goes to scope out Van Richten and somehow gets lost in the tiny camp by rolling a natural one. It is a maze of horses. He eventually finds Van Richten, who seems to be crying. Paultin has no sympathy whatsoever.
The adventurers grab some more treasure. They get non-magic jewelry and a potion.
The Vistani Tent[edit | edit source]
Someone is cooking waffles for the heroes in a vistani tent. Most of the group goes into the tent.
Strix stays outside.. She's sure something bad is going to happen. She spots two vistani talking quietly outside. Strix goes into gaseous form and learns that one vistani is leaving to inform Strahd that the adventurers are here.
Diath rolls a natural 20 on his perception. He sees that the shadows of the vistani and Paultin are moving of their own accord. He joins Evelyn dancing and warns her that something's up, and they nonchalantly dance out of the tent.
Chris points out that the waffles are still being made.
Van Richten tells the group that Strahd is linked to the vistani and that their shadows are representative of that. Diath grabs Paultin and asks him what he did. Paultin goes, "Is this the part where we kiss?"
Murderbot's First Murder[edit | edit source]
Arabelle shows a kid named Joseph her new buddy. The group is calling the little serial killer golem "Murderbot." The kid spits on Murderbot. Murderbot opens his mouth and fires a dart into Joseph's neck. He falls over. He's dead!
The group rolls initiative. Arabelle runs and Diath tries to grab her, but he rolls a 3. Paultin casts sleep on Arabelle, which works. Diath pulls out the hag pin and stabs Arabelle. She reaches up and smears her blood on his face. Then she shrivels into a husk, dead.
Strix has see invisible going and rolls a 20 on her perception check. She spots an individual watching from the shadows. Strix decides to cast enlarge/reduce on this person, but they make their saving throw.
Vistani Retaliation[edit | edit source]
She wants to get the dead kid, Joseph, and take him along, but ultimately she decides to let him go to The Morninglord.
The vistani get on their horses. Paultin and Diath are running. The group actually gets away and makes it safely into the woods. Evelyn casts cure wounds on Van Richten, who was at 0 hit points. Evelyn summons Mourning Glory with a Disney Princess mini-tune. End of session.
