My Curse of Strahd group continues to astound me!
Last session they made their way towards Vallaki, with Ireena in tow, when they spied an old windmill on a nearby hill.
Two of their companions had remained with the Vistani at Tser Pools, and having been warned away from the windmill, they were leery about approaching it. Eventually the ranger convinced them to go for a look, and they were greeted by a pair of terribly ugly women who attempted to sell them some baked goods. Their mother was away on a shopping trip, and they cackled when the adventurers produced the deed to the windmill, and attempted to claim ownership. The hideous women shooed them away and told them to take it up with the lord of the land. Perhaps he would listen to their plea!
Somewhat disheartened the players turned away and were going to resume their trip to Vallaki. However the ranger spotted a sorrow of ravens flocking nearby and chose to investigate. They discovered the standing stones, a small pile of childrens teeth left as an offering, and using a spell the Paladin questioned a raven, the same raven who ad desperatly tried to drive the adventurers away from the windmill.
Upon learning the true nature of the hags, the rode back to the windmill, kicked in the door, and brought all the fire, fury, and savage vengeance they could muster. Literally butchering the evil creatures! They rescued the children, mounted up, and did a slow-motion ride off into the sunset, with “Old Bonegrinder” being consumed in a blazing fire behind them.
They have now made it to Vallaki, after encountering an old woman pushing a traders cart on the road...also trying to sell pastries... *If you comment, no spoilers please....some of my players read this page!*
