Knowledge of the past to aid the present: Look for a wizard's tower on a lake. Let the wizard's name and servant guide you to that which you seek.
Holy symbol of great hope: Look to the west. Find a pool blessed by the light of the white sun.
The Sunsword: I see a sleeping prince, a servant of light and the brother of Darkness. This treasure lies with him.
An ally to aid you in your quest: A vistana wanders this land alone, searching for her mentor. She doesn't stay in one place for long. Seek her out at Saint Markovias Abbey, near the mists.
The final confrontation: He dwells with one whose blood sealed his doom, a brother of light snuffed out too soon.
With these prophecies foretold by Madam Eva, the party enters the Village of Barovia. What horrors will they find? Perhaps a body in need of burying, a reincarnated spirit in a woman unaware of her past life while so many others walk around as soulless husks, or perhaps even price gouging? Only time will tell.

What is Storytelling Breakdown?
Storytelling Breakdown is a podcast deep dive into the way our favorite films, shows, books, games, and more reach us in all sorts of ways. Hosts Ben Clemmer and Caleb Meyer bring you a pop culture audio adventure recorded in Fort Wayne, Indiana. From the terrifying resonance of an eighty year old clown to the entire life of Caesar, from the cutting edge animation of an entire Spider-Verse to a card game from the late nineties that’s so Star Wars it hurts, and from the indelible mark of one of comics’ most creative writers to a museum dedicated to superheroes of all ages, Storytelling Breakdown is place where we can explore everything we love about the stories that make us who we are.
Storytelling Breakdown is recorded in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in association with Wayneshout Productions, LLC. Original music by Kurt Roembke. Artwork by Daniel Church.
