Gimble Timbers ran towards Strahd, Sun-Sword raised. He struck the vampire. Strahd let out a mighty howl and, seeing that the tide had turned against him, his ghouls defeated, he began to sink silently through the floor. Gimble struck out again only for his blade to cut through the air above the ground where Strahd had just stood. Strahd had been swallowed by the castle and escaped to lick his wounds. Read More

The rain hammered down on the Associates until they were wet to their souls. The high walls that encircled the keep leered down at them, silently mocking their futile efforts to find a secret way in. They tried circling the keep only to be stopped half way by an impossible portcullis. Through the gaps between its imposing iron bars they could see a chapel on the edge of the grounds.

This was the only way in to Castle Ravenloft, and their last chance to turn back. Read More

With the two skeletal revenant guards dealt with, the party had to figure out their next move. Victor and Brundle collected Gimble and Ireena between them and the six heroes stood in the battlements surveying Argynvostholt mansion below. It must have been pretty impressive in its prime. Now it just looked worn out and full of holes. Deciding luck was on their side, and without plan or judgement, they all leapt down the 10-foot drop landing on a pile of rubble in the center of the open-topped room.

Seeing the seven earthbound, undead revenants tumbling from the third-story window, Victor acted quickly, summoning an invisible wall of force between them and the party. The attackers were trapped, caught 15 feet in the air and floating above the heroes. Nepharon and Associates had narrowly escaped a deadly situation in Argynvostholt, but they danger wasn’t over.

Last night was session 61 in our epic online Curse of Strahd Dungeons & Dragons campaign. We have been playing over Skype and it has taken us this long to get the hang of it.
