Nikolai can be seen outside his home.
The Burgomeister has died and Ireena is with him. She will not leave the town, nor enter the church, but will accompany the party if Ismark is with them.
Ismark is in the tavern drinking. He has been waiting for strangers to come so that he can ask their help in taking his “sister” to Vallaki. He will take over the Burgomeister duties after finding out his father is dead.
Davy has been lurking about in the tavern during the day, and as a wolf at night near the Burgomeister’s house. He won’t speak to the characters as he has great disdain for them.
The Bishop has his son trapped under the church. His son will attempt to escape and then begin to feed on random villagers prompting a vampire spawn infestation.
Anna will appear as a spirit outside of town, but only at night. She can be spotted if the party follows the March of the Dead.
Villagers in the tavern will react to the party with suspicion; stating that they don’t trust strangers. The three main villagers who frequent the tavern are Hans, Franz, and Ivan.
Punny Bones will try to perform a show at dinner time. It won’t go well. He will tell of his problem if the party engage him in his room.
The next day:
The party will awaken to the sound of villagers screaming, and the church bell ringing.
The town will be attacked by an abominable yeti creature. Sent by Strahd to test the party’s strength and conviction in helping people they don’t know.
If the party impress Strahd, he will send his Black Coach along with his personal note inviting them to his castle. It will arrive in the late afternoon.
When the party returns from Castle Ravenloft:
The villagers will have locked up a Vistani, Davy, accusing him of murdering Igor.
Igor will have fallen into the grave and have been there for a day.
If the party doesn’t find him by the following morning, he will be dead and won’t be able to relate how he simply fell in from the shaking during the thunder crash. Davy will be hung for murder. Otherwise he will be set free.
Davy will not speak to the party if they attempt to interview him. He will spit at them and insult them.
