Dungeons and Dragons – Curse of Innistrahd Episode 3: A Condition of the Blood

Shadowgrange was dead. Donavich knew this in his heart even as it trembled from dawn til dusk. The town had never been a metropolis or even a center for the rallying forces of cathars and hunters that passed through the outland valleys, but time had looked upon the town with vindictive disdain. In the flickering candlelight of the barren church, he tried his very best to pray, calloused pale hands clutching a silvered collar with all of the faith he had left.

Dark eyes scowl at him in reply as she perches herself on the edge of the stripped countertop. He shakes his head, feeling the weight of the world in his tense neck. “I hope you’ll listen when they come back.” he says after what feels like hours deadlocked in stillness. “And if they don’t?” It’’s a sharp, immediate reply. Her still face and dead words fill the room as he tries to think of an answer. He doesn’t. And the day goes on, until it becomes night.

Mrs Frieda’s Session 47 – Blood Rhino Rides Again

Amazingly enough, through life-threatening situations, teenage drama and angst, and supernatural power convergences, life goes on. Our heroes have recovered a bit, and while wounds – both physical and mental – are still being nursed and secrets are still being kept, life’s not that bad.

What this means, however, is that the greatest challenge of all still awaits: the High School Dance.

Can the kids survive their first brush with teenage romance? Will the punch remain un-spiked? And most importantly, can anyone actually dance?
