Notes from 11/5/20 - Denouement

Postby MercyDrake » Fri Nov 06, 2020 3:26 pm

The party drove off the rest of the brides. Kili tried stabilizing Cat, but Cat was truly dead. Party exited building, Morpheus lifted up the portcullis and the party went to the front gate. Look back at the castle, Calder spots Strahd standing on a parapet glaring at us.

Party finds no mechanism for the gate in the tunnel to the gate. The portcullis is down and drawbridge closed. Ezmerelda knocks left hand gate tower. Calder knocks the right. Both have a mechanism of chain/cogs/drum but no controls. We figure out they are magically controlled - we need the code word or a dispel. Morpheus tries a dispel and succeeds on one side of the draw, but there are no more spels in the party to try anything else. The walls are 90’ tall.

The party decides to go to the back of the caste to the overlook, and rappel down to the platform 100' below. The thinking is that could be a spot for a long rest. With Calder's levitation and three 50' ropes, we get there, with Strahd watching.

Caldor smashes one of the stained glass windows (opaque from dirt/grime) for entry, seeing two large, marble coffins resting on white slabs. There are stairs ascending. Vaulted ceiling inlaid with gold mosaic. Top of stairs has a soft curtain of blue light (magic?). The coffins are marked - King Barov von Zarovitch and Queen Ravenovia van Roeyen …… Strahd’s parents.

Calder wants to untie the rope and Strahd tosses it down. He catches the rope and comes back down. Ten minutes into short rest a familiar figure is staring at us through the blue light curtain. Strahd. He points his finger at Morpheus who sees no effect.

Kili tries turning him to no effect. Strahd fogs the room. Morpheus ignites the sun blade. Calder goes out the window with levitate and goes to the ledge above. Brandt attacks for some damage. Strahd attacks Kili after Ez hits him. Kili fires off holy symbol of Ravenkind and sticks it into Strahd’s area. Strahd knocks Kili down.

Strahd sinks through the floor taking some damage from the party. Ezmerelda binds Kili’s wounds. Strahd reappears outside the windows and knocks down Calder.

The remaining party goes to the blue curtain and Strahd knocks down the fog cloud allowing the Ravenkind to strike him. He advances and casts blight at Morpheus. Morpheus taunts him and Strahd flees in terror. Brandt opens the King’s crypt (wax effigy found).

Brandt, Morpheus, Klutz, Ezmerelda chase him around as Strahd does his rope-a-dope. They try to pin him down but he runs through the curtain. Every attack he attacks Brandt until Brandt is down. Morpheus gives him some hit points and goes to the king’s coffin. Brandt attacks Strahd as does Klutz and Morpheus. Strahd flees outside once more to recover hit points. When he returns, he misses Brandt and Morpheus strikes him and he strikes at Brandt again (who survives) until Caldor’s reaction triggers yet another attack on Brandt that finally knocks him down.

Sounds like our fate is sealed? Can we "wrap up" by talking it through?
