Official decree from the Count
« on: July 24, 2008, 03:14:18 PM »
This document bears the offical seal of the Von Zarovich family, and is posted in all public meeting places. It is read aloud by town criers for those who cannot read:

"Attention, all people within Barovia!

I, Strahd, Lord and Master of Barovia, have learned that an adventurer named Ellana Twiggy has been presenting herself as my agent and using my name in an attempt to procure a sword that has been in my family for generations. Make no mistake, she is an imposter and the sword, which I have only recently regained from thieves, is safe in my possession.

For impersonating an agent of the Count, and for seeking to steal a precious family heirloom from myself, I hereby declare Ellana Twiggy an enemy of the State. She is to be captured by any means necessary, with a substantial award to any who bring her in.

Signed and sealed,

Count Strahd von Zarovich XI
Master of Barovia."

*Ellana hears the criers as she passes and pulls up her hood, knowing that for some reason or another she has been betrayed by the one she serves, and subsiquently leaves barovia as hastily as possbile.*

Grimshackle hears the news, and beats himself about the head. "Why'd I give her back that damned sword? Look what she goes and does with it!"

The Mists rise at all of Barovia's borders. Those who try to leave the nation find themselves choking and gasping for air until they turn back towards Barovia. Not even the Vistani elixirs will abate the effect.

A new announcement is distributed to all Barovian settlements:

"Ellana Twiggy is to be captured alive for questioning. No reward will be offered if she is killed.

-Strahd"

Grimshackle rubs his hands together, and draws out two seldom-used Death Shards. "Muahaha."

The decrees are taken down. They are replaced by a statement declaring that Ellana has been cleared of the charges against her and she is free to go about her business.

At the same time, the Mists drop at Barovia's borders and travelers are free to leave the country again.
