Interesting post as usual, and quicker than I expected! My party is in Vallaki at the moment and even though I am putting a lot of planning into it (so that my party can just ignore Fiona’s invitation and do away with all my thinking), I continuously realise how much you can actually do in Curse of Strahd. I’m A Spoiled Camping Lady It’s My Husband’s Fault T-Shirt The reason why I like your posts is because you think. I roll with what the book offers me (making changes from time to time), but I never go deep into characters. But here, we have a reason why the Burgomaster acts this way, who Fiona Wachter really is.

I’m probably not going to use it, since your ideas are very different too mine (but very interesting nonetheless!), and it builds characters. Even if their story is never told, you can refer to it, you can play out of their past. This is a very interesting way of looking at the Vallakian political situation! My question is this: in your model, does Wachter believe that Strahd must be destroyed if “sunlight” is to come upon Vallaki again?I’m A Spoiled Camping Lady It’s My Husband’s Fault T-Shirt Does she believe that he is actually a decent ruler whose goodwill could bring Vallaki prosperity if the burgomaster’s corrupt rule could be overthrown?

In what capacity does she actually serve Strahd, and how genuine is her loyalty? In my version of Barovia, Fiona doesn’t really think about Strahd at all. There’s a term in the printed material that I sort of latched onto. It says that Fiona considers Strahd nothing more than “a negligent landlord.” To her, he’s just a distant King that does neither good nor evil to her home.I’m A Spoiled Camping Lady It’s My Husband’s Fault T-Shirt She met him and respects him, yes, but she’s no devout follower. She also trades information with him in return for the magic and imp he gifted her as a teenager. But that is still just a trade agreement to Fiona, not a declaration of loyalty
