The Werebear Bunch
Strahd von Zarovich
A cursed Vampire lord that plagues the party
Strahd has never been fought by the party, but his interplanar abilities and the strength of his magic seem to make them believe he is a force to be reckoned with.
Strahd von Zarovich first met the Werebear Bunch in a demiplane of his own design. He had lured them there with the hope he might finally be granted the love of Tatyana Federovna, only to have his plans terribly backfire. Feeling no ill-will towards the party, he simply sent them home with the promise that he would return to them again with a better formulated plan.
He didn’t make an appearance until much later, when a warp whistle gone awry brought the Werebear Bunch to an infernal wedding. It is here that Strahd made clear his knowledge of the returning Demon Lords, and put forward that he was invested in stopping them. Strahd stood alongside the Werebear Bunch as they fought at this wedding and returned them to their intended location.
The party have suggested that Strahd’s willingness to stop the summoning of Demon Lords might make him a candidate for being a Hero in their new band of Thirteen Heroes.
