Curse of Strahd
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
Welcome to Ravenloft! A classic world in DnD, Curse of Strahd is an adventure that will test your skill, strategy, and sanity as characters make their way through the horribly haunted landscape of Barovia. Even though this is a pre-written module, I often take creative licenses and liberties in order to make the story more engaging and to better fit the party composition. As a DM, I focus on inclusive storytelling, which is enhanced by my English/Creative Writing educational background. I work closely with players to entangle their characters into the world and engage them in meaningful story moments and roleplay experiences. However, don't let this rp-focus fool you; I love creating challenging and engaging combat encounters that enhance the flow of the story and provide for memorable tactical moments. As a DM, my first priority is to make sure my players are having fun. If you are not willing to collaborate and work with your other players in a way that is productive, then please don't apply. My game is a safe space for any and all individuals, and I will not tolerate racist, sexist, homophobic, ableist, or any other discriminatory behavior/comments at any time. My second priority is to make sure I have fun, and I do this by diligently preparing for sessions and customizing the pre-written module to fit the group's players and characters. After all, if I don't enjoy what I'm doing, how could I expect my players to enjoy what I'm giving them? My third priority is to make sure the story we are telling together is rewarding. I want my players to walk away from each session feeling satisfied and excited for the games to come. I want to create a memorable story, and I want you to help shape the narrative with me.
How to prepare
Players should create their characters before Session 1, but we will be having a Session 0 to go over rules, expectations, boundaries, and any additional character questions. Your character's backstory should be set in stone by the time you reach level 3.
What I provide
I will be providing visuals, background music, and the storytelling tools necessary to GM a successful game.

How will character creation work
You will create a level 1 character before game starts. For stats you will roll 4d6 dropping the lowest number 8 times, keeping the highest 6. Your stats should average at least a 12. If your chosen 6 stats do not average out to 12, then you will roll again. In addition, you also get to select a feat at level 1. For this reason, the subclass of human variant is not allowed. Please use officially published sources when building your character.
Players can expect
- Combat/Tactics: High
