    Oy...I hadn't even considered that.

    though the though of pre-emptive staking is a new one. :)

    Edit: T'riss is not as familiar w/ vamps, etc...so I'll let someone else fill in Annan.

    Actually, Aswin saw the red eyes first in the cemetary. I'm pretty sure it was worgs.

    So... he's a vampire pimp.

    I guess that's not so hard to believe.

    You are all tainted! Back vampire spawn, get back I say!

    I now no longer trust anyone except maybe Anaan. Though there were a lot of story in those spoilers, plenty of chances for 'red-eye'. Ok, I trust nobody.

    Actually, if there is a single person that can be trusted without doubt it is Aswin. He is flat-out immune to a Vampire's Dominate. Paladin of Freedom goodness.

    Isaac probably can be too. He's the only one that never took a watch or gone on a solo expedition.

    Edit:
    Also don't forget what NPCs have said about him. You won't necessarily remember dominating him, so he might have separate memory mojo, and he's a strigoi, so he might have other ways to compromise you.

    In other words, paranoia is your friend.

    It's in Anann's, but it's a little difficult to be properly paranoid when you have no idea what to be paranoid about.

    In Ravenloft the sugar plums spread Taint, the kiddies are zombies or worse, the planes are flat because of a giant steamroller that will run you over and you really don't want to know what qualifies as 'fun' for the Dark Powers.

    True that. I'm just waiting to see what sort of sugary, hate-filled horrors Strahd keeps in his lair.

    Just be glad we're not playing with the Power Check rules. Aswin would be fine since he'd lose his powers if he committed an evil act anyway, but as you gather taint you'll be more likely to do something evil. Which in Ravenloft is a very bad thing.

    She did.

    ...Unless you meant the other one. Even if it happens to come up, she's unlikely to say it until she really, really trusts everyone else. (And this is Ravenloft, remember? Like that's ever going to happen.)

    It's the last thing she says in the post. And... well, yeah, but that was before. Now she has to actually work with these people.

    Besides, he bought her a beer.

    ...The former if you read it before 12:32, otherwise the latter.

    Though either way, it was an edit I made because of my own inability to read a few black letters on an enormous white-and-beige computer screen, so...

    I'm not sure what they drank in Ireland back in Roman times, but she's already a big whiskey bottle of anachronisms anyway.

    Beer, possibly wine or cider as well. They grew grains (I believe primarily barley) and apples, and the wine trade was well established.

    Whiskey (uisce beatha = "water of life") wouldn't have been available, though, since distillation wasn't known until ~100 A.D., and then only as an alchemical treatment. The first known distilled liquors were in China in the 12th Century A.D. There wasn't anything in Europe until the Middle Ages, when freeze distillation was discovered (very dangerous, since it also concentrates methanol), and then more modern distillation came around during the Renaissance.

    Barley wine would have been the strongest thing they had.

    Well, are you a Glaswegian or an Ulsterite? That'll influence whether the stout from home is any good.

    Interesting trivia fact about Scotland and Ireland: Scot initially referred to Ireland. See that headline Libri Scottice scripti? Means books in Irish writing. Gave me pause when I first came across it.

    Unless there's something else you want to talk about with Ireena, Ashlyn, and Ismark, we'll move to the next day. Ismark will pay for you to stay at the Blood and Vine.

    Also, between meeting Madam Eva and finding the Sunsword, you earned 1200 XP, which brings you to 21,560. Everyone should gain a level except T'riss, who gains two because we're lowering her LA. Please give me a summary of how you're leveling up (class, class features, HP, skill points, feats, mysteries, etc.).
