Letter of Invitation
Letter found in the hand of a corpse by the party, still sealed. It read as follows:
Know that is is I who have brought you to this land, my home, and know that I alone can release you from it. I bid you dine at my castle so that we can meet in civilized surroundings. Your passage here will be a safe one.
I await your arrival.
Strahd von Zarovich
It is not apparent whom the letter was addressing.
