Curse of Strahd
You were drawn to Mary’s house by the sound of her wailing, which was audible throughout Barovia.
On investigating, you found that she was mourning the loss of her daughter, Gertruda. Mary was clearly distraught, and had equally clearly not been looking after herself in the three days since Gertruda disappeared.
Mary told you the following:
- She had kept Gertruda inside all her life, to protect her from the horrors of Barovia.
- Gertruda had always wanted to go outside, and ran off when Mary was distracted.
- Gertruda has been taken by Strahd.
- Strahd is a devil who lives in Castle Ravenloft.
