Curse of Strahd
Madam Eva's Fortune
When the group finally met Madam Eva at Tser Pool Encampment she read them their fortunes. It is said that the Vistani people have powerful fortune telling abilities. Kings and Queens often seek their advice and treat it in a most serious manner. Sometimes fortunes may come in riddles, other times they are to be taken literally, but they should ALWAYS be heeded.
“Would you like me to read your fortune?”
She takes out a deck of Tarokka cards and begins her reading, dealing 5 cards in all.
She places her hand on the first card.
“This card tells of history. Knowledge of the ancient will help you better understand your enemy.” She flips the card, the Elementalist. “The treasure is hidden in a small castle beneath a mountain, guarded by amber giants.”
The second card. “This card tells of a powerful force for good and protection, a holy symbol of great hope.” She flips the card over, the Warrior. “That which you seek lies in the womb of darkness, the devil’s lair: the one place to which he must return.”
The third card. “This is a card of power and strength. It tells of a weapon of vengeance: a sword of sunlight. The Illusionist… A man is not what he seems. He comes here in a carnival wagon. Therein lies what you seek.”
The fourth card. “This card sheds light on one who will help you greatly in the battle against darkness. Ah, the Mists! A Vistana wanders this aland alone, searching for her mentor. She does not stay in one place for long. Seek her out at Saint Markovia’s abbey, near the mists.”
The points towards the fifth and final card. “Your enemy is a creature of darkness, whose powers are beyond mortality. This card will lead you to him!” She flips the card over, “The Innocent. “He dwells with the one whose blood sealed his doom, a brother of light snuffed out too soon.”
