After learning the usually calm-nerved Roselyn Green had been “out of sorts,” the party finds that her precious daughter had gone missing the previous evening. Accepting her pleas for help, the adventurers combed the town of Fallcrest for clues as to where young Tess had gone.
After a successful interrogation of Tess’ best friend, the party learned that they had snuck away to see the fabled “Dusk” and that Tess had stayed behind to meet with the actors. She never returned.
The party began the painstaking task of interrogating the various members of the traveling troupe and seemed to be met with resistance every step of the way. (I mean, have you ever had to deal with actors before? Seriously, have you? So. Annoying.) They were even ambushed by wolves! It was almost as if someone was watching them. Eventually, the crew learned that the Stage Manager was the last to have seen Tess and they approach him.
Suddenly, the Stage Manager put a spell on the theater crowd, forcing our adventurers to fight unwilling enemies, and vanished in the distance.
After vanquishing their horrific foes (especially Becky, getting hit in the head with her purse was more than enough pain and embarrassment for one day), the heroes discovered that the entire Stage Crew took off with some wagons down the old, windy Trader’s road. Their cover was blown, they were clearly behind all the missing girls throughout the land.
Fortunately, by good fortune and completely random happenstance, the crew left one wagon behind. Our party jumped aboard the wagon and pursued the evil Stage Crew Vampires (Which is also my Grateful Dead Cover Band name).
The battle raged on as the wagons careened down the dangerous road in the middle of the night, our heroes emerged victorious. First dispatching the henchmen and finally eliminating the Stage Manager Vampire. His screams echoed across the sky as his undead body turned to dust. It was totally epic.
Upon his defeat, the adventurers were able to find the unconscious form of Tess Green. She was alive, but her body was marked by 2 pronged bites, the horrific trademark of a vampire feast.
A lone wolf howls in the distance…
