After waking up on the evening of 24 October 1933, the group discovers that the Czech army has rolled into Dubi. They have already impounded the three vehicles the group came in on and were preparing for a more elaborate search of Dubi. Dusan, the Prince of Dubi, while remaining outwardly calm, asks that the party leave as soon as possible.
The group heads out on foot and after going about 2 miles up the road, the discover the courier’s car. The men apparently left it without a struggle. Another group of footprints (which smelled of werewolf) lead the couriers down the road. From there the party heads up to an ancient ruin and are met by a man and a young lady. They are clearly werewolves and, once Viktoria explains what they are doing, seem rather amused. Other werewolves circle the group. Then they are told they can go talk to Theobald Zardov, one of Dusan’s childer.
When the party gets to Zardov’s odd keep, they are welcomed and the book is turned over in short order. Zardov admits that the men’s deaths were his fault, but doesn’t really explain what that means, nor does he really explain the relationship he has with the werewolves or with his Sire, Dusan. He simply, and quickly, finds a place for the players to rest for the day and leaves.
