About the adventure

Under raging storm clouds, a lone figure stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. A cold, bitter wind spins dead leaves about him, billowing his cape in the darkness. Lightning splits the clouds overhead, casting stark white light across him. The figure turns to the sky, revealing the angular muscles of his face and hands. He has a look of power—and of madness. His once handsome face is contorted by a tragedy darker than the night itself. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as the figure turns his gaze back to the village. Far below, yet not beyond his ken, a party of adventurers has just entered his domain. Another lightning flash rips through the darkness, its thunder echoing through the castle’s towers. But the figure is gone. Only the howling of the wind—or perhaps a lone wolf—fills the midnight air.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players need a mic, a computer, a web browser, and an active internet connection. It is preferable that players have a quiet environment to play in. You will need to create an account with Discord. I use Foundry VTT as the game client. I will send you a link to the game server when we start. You may wish to create a Forge Account ahead of time to use Foundry. You do not need to download anything and can run this in your browser.

What I provide

I will bring a fully digital experience similar to a 2D dungeon crawling RPG video game. This includes maps, templates, some animated effects, music, etc. You do not need to know how to play ahead of time but if you haven't played before let me know and I will help guide and teach you as we go.

Gameplay details

This game features fantasy violence and drug use. It will touch on themes related to souls, damnation, marriage, and common classic horror troupes related to gothic horror.
