### Re: Notes from 08/27/2020 - How Many Wives?!!?

Beyond all expectations, the long rest succeeded.

The party finished searching Sergei's tomb. Brandt lifted open the sarcophagus lid revealing a well-preserved Sergei (the necromantic magic previously detected) wearing magical plate (the abjuration). The party closed the lid and moved on.

The party then argued about the best way into Strahd's tomb.
- They talked to Intree Sik-Valoo several times but got no closer to knowing what to do
- Calder made Cat fly but the teleport traps work even if you don't touch them
- They examined the portals in the portal room. Caldor discovered conjuration magics on both
- Brandt stood in the west portal and nothing happened.
The party decided that one portal had to be incoming and the other outgoing, but decided against using the portals, opting instead to go back to the teleport brasier to use the yellow crystal. That worked.

Strahd's tomb was a shiny black coffin on a dirt floor. Thirty foot arched ceilings. Three gloomy alcoves the Brandt quickly proved took him to the portal room and back.

Then, rising out of dirt, 3 more Strahd brides, Anastraysya Krelova, Ludmilla Vilisevic, Volenta Popovsky. Kili turned two of them and a running battle ensued - they used the portals to escape. The party tried their best to follow, but it largely didn't work. Kili managed to paralyze Ludmilla, but only paralyzed a simulacrum, the real one also escaped.

No doubt they are off to get Strahd's help.

The three wives rose out of the dirt as the party was leaving and only Brandt and Morpheus were still in the tomb.
