Andor and I get up and head to the Inn early. Once we got to the Inn, I got some food and we talked to the others about what we were going to do about the festival. Sasha joined us and was saying sorry for not meeting with us last night. Old Wolf started asking Sasha what she thought about lady Wachter and Sasha didn’t know anything about her.
Danika closes the Inn and we as a group head to where the festival is taking place. We all there waiting and we see children dressed up as flowers appeared and the burgomaster’s wife on a white horse came out. Some guards came out pushing a cart full of burnables. Then the burgomaster came out last on a horse. The burgomaster made a speech and had a torch in his hand to light the cart on fire. After his speech thousands of bats start flying over us and as the bats flew away. The burgomaster went to light the cart on fire, heavy rain appeared out of no where putting the flame out.
Someone in the crowd laughed a little and the burgomaster figured it out that it was a guard and yelled out “Spite! Malicious Mockery! Arrest him!”, another guard went to arrest him and that is when someone else yelled “NOW”. After that about 12 masked people pushed through the crowd and went to attack the guards. The burgomaster yelled “Guards, Protect me!” as he rode off on his horse, leaving his wife behind.
Old Wolf got my attention to realize that Andor and Izmark were headed toward the church. So I start heading that way with Sasha and Old Wolf.
By the time we got the church in our sight, we saw more bats, some zombies and some wolves around the church. As we got closer, we notice Strahd is there. We engage in the fight with the Zombies, bats and wolves, all while moving closer to the church. And our Healer (Old Wolf) slowly joins the fight and trying to heal people.
As the fight is happening, Strahd yells out to Andor giving him a choice of his friends or Irena. The fight continues and we learn that Andor’s friends got turned into Vampires and started attacking Andor. Izmark dies while trying to protect his sister. I managed to get a really good hit on Strahd before he took off. After Strahd left Old Wolf finally got up to the fight and revived Izmark.
