Strahd vs. The Gentlemen Bastards
Keeper of the Amber Temple
This ancient, lich-like creature assumed Winston had come to the Amber Temple seeking forbidden knowledge and power. He doesn’t seem to have an alliance with or animosity toward Strahd. He was inclined to help the stranded gunslinger.
Upon Winston’s second visit to the Amber Temple, Exethanter exhibited the signs of corruption wrought by Drizlash, the Nine-Eyed Spider. He greeted the gunslinger warmly, providing advice on how to remove Baba Lysaga’s curse.
