This is the end, my friends… but Scott, Laird, Jason, David, and Gayle have some ruminating to do, and you’re invited! Find out what the boys think about D&D 5e; what bits of Curse of Strahd were completely fudged or invented by Scott; and why Gothic horror is cathartic/hilarious.
The survivors of last episode’s boss battle regroup, and next moves are discussed. The sun peeks through the mists. A conversation with a dragon skull gets heated. Ralston gets a few cantrips named after him. Happily ever afters???

This is it! The colossal climactic instalment of Curse of Strahd, featuring: epically uncoordinated team combat! Heroically failed saving throws! And so many Hail Mary spells, you’ll think the Morninglord converted to Christianity. THIS IS IT!!!
Beneath Strahd’s tomb, a gargantuan undead monstrosity rises. Can the heroes rescue Nadja from its clutches before the Darklord returns to finish them off? It’s the penultimate battle!
The heroes await word from Nadja, who has wriggled into Ravenloft’s depths in pursuit of Strahd. A ghostly, musical interlude provides a glimpse at the OG Red Wedding.
It’s the throne-room smackdown with the Darklord! Agonizing dice rolls and hairbreadth reversals await! Laird is very drunk this week!
We push on past some garbled audio; the heroes break an ancient curse; David says a bad word; and Ralston delivers a pep talk that would inspire the Day Daddy himself!
In the hidden heart of Castle Ravenloft, the heroes trade noisy blows with some uncle-spiders before discovering a fortress within the fortress… and a treasure beyond price!
With Death defeated and the party reunited, the heroes indulge in some chimney-diving and trap-springing.
