    About the adventure

    You, adventurer, have been contracted to recover a team of missionaries of Lithander from a dark realm. The threat, extreme. The reward, bountiful. The location: Barovia. Can your party infiltrate the domain of dread and recover the team without alerting the dark lord of your mission? Or will this be a one way trip?
