I know a few people play tabletops here. I have been running Curse of Strahd with 5e for a while and I'm at an interesting a deadly battle that will likely be the next session entirely. I'm curious what people here would pitch as a possible twist or resolution outside of just killing players dead.
Basically, the group pissed off a bunch of werewolves and have been dodging them for a while. For some reason (after figuring out they were being followed into an ambush) they cut through the woods to a river where they promptly built a raft instead of swimming. I even had humans and werewolves show up in the distance down the bank and just watch them and they still built this damned raft. Anyways, the werewolf leader shows up and that's the end of the session after a brief exchange before he transformed and charged.
They had an OK chance to win, but they don't know one of their heavy hitters has just bonded with a cursed weapon that forces him to use it on a fight and fight to the death. Worse yet, it is a spear and he uses a bow.
The werewolf leader wants blood for being embarrassed, but ultimately is also subordinate to Strahd who is very angry that they managed to steal something from him. I'm thinking the guy with the spear (who also drove for the raft to be built) is probably dead dead, but they others if they don't run should probably find themselves in the castle dungeon. I feel like there is a better resolution I'm just not clever enough to see, so I'm looking to bounce ideas off anyone.
