Summary[edit | edit source]
Episode 56: Prime Evil[edit | edit source]
The Party[edit | edit source]
Barovia's Past[edit | edit source]
The group has traveled to Barovia's past.
Strix has a witch's broom. The broom's name is Whiskey.
Evelyn and Paultin appear in Castle Ravenloft. A woman mistakes Paultin for the bard performing at the wedding between Sergei and Tatyana. Paultin plays along. She looks at construct Evelyn, and says she has one of those, too. It's a wedding gift.
Simon[edit | edit source]
Strix is able to figure out that the group was sent back in time by either a god or someone with a wish spell. She thinks that they might be in a version of Barovia that is locked in time, replaying over and over.
Strix thinks that whatever they do here will affect Barovia only, not the entire multiverse. The characters won't have to worry about being erased. They might be altered but no matter what happens, they'll know what they know.
Despite this very clear information, Diath is really wary about changing the timeline. He says that it might undo everything and the group won't know each other. He tells the group that they are more important to him than anything else.
Diath does not want to use the sword, not at all.
Rahadin comes into the room and kicks the group out.
They spot a magic lute. An instrument of the bards known as the Caniath mandolin. Paultin claims it for his own.
Tarokka Reading[edit | edit source]
Eva isn't around, so Strix goes to grab Eva's tarokka deck (Eva's gone). She sees the formation the cards were in during her reading.
- Top Card: Two of Swords/Paladin (Evelyn)
- Bottom: Raven (Paultin)
- Left: Master of Coins/Rogue (Diath)
- Right: Five of Stars/Elementalist (Strix)
- The Card Between Them All: The Three of Glyphs - the Healer (Lathander?!)
Then Strix turns into Sergei and says, "I'm you from the future." Paultin helpfully plays dramatic music on the mandolin. They try to explain to Sergei that he's in grave danger. If history repeats itself, Strahd is going to kill Sergei and Tatyana will kill herself.
The group sees that there are three other tarokka cards on the floor:
- The Tempter
- The Marrionette
- The Executioner
Tatyana's Fate[edit | edit source]
Luckily, the group has set her up with a protective spell, so Tatyana doesn't die. End of session.
