The local lord, Gustav Vandevic, is hosting a party the following day to celebrate that his niece has become betrothed to the son of a neighbouring noble, and the adventuring party is invited to attend the festivities.

Later on a tea party is hosted by the lady of the manor. In the evening a feast is held. During this time it becomes clear that all is not as it seems. The nobles are harbouring hatred towards one another, and the Vandevicsny famlily line seems to be cursed. The day ends with a masquerade.

Please note that the original boxed set contains an audio CD, and that the version available through DM's guild contains no audio supplement. Though the adventure can be played without the audio supplement, I highly recommend acquiring the original boxed set, with the CD, as the soundtrack on the CD is an important part of the adventure. Even though the adventure is set in the Mystara campaign setting it can easily be adopted to other settings like Forgotten Realms.
