    About the adventure

    Take a plunge into the mists of Barovia. Face the horrors that dwell in its dark forests, and defeat elder evils. Will you come out alive and see the Sun again? The Master of Ravenloft is having guests for dinner, and you are invited! In this adventure I'll be running the Curse of Strahd module, but with some additions of my own. The entire campaign takes the characters from level 1 to level 10, so it might take a while, fair warning. Curse of Strahd is an official adventure module, published by Wizards of the Coast in 2016 for D&D 5th edition. It's one of the best adventures ever put to print in my opinion, and I've run it multiple times with friends. Its horror athmosphere is something you don't usually get in D&D5e, but I've fine-tuned it to make it as immersive and eerie as possible. Vampires are still cool! CW: This campaign deals with some delicate themes such as stalking, abuse, mental illness and a variety of interpersonal issues. And that is on top of the usual horror and gore one can expect from the setting. If any of this sounds like too much for you, feel free to contact me privately to discuss what needs to be toned down.

    How to prepare

    You need at the very least a Discord Account, as that is what we'll be using to talk. Also hardware that can let you talk to us, so a smartphone or a PC with a mic. I'd also strongly advise having Wi-Fi connection or an unlimited data plan, as these games can potentially consume quite the bandwith. With this, you're set to play, everything else helps but it's not strictly required Ideally you'd want: >A Discord Account >A Roll20 Account >A PC (or Mac, or Laptop) that can run both >Headphones >A Webcam (absolutely not required to use it if you don't feel like showing your face) >A Microphone (many headphones and webcams come with one) >Stable Internet Connection with unlimited data (WiFi or some nice mobile plan)

    What I provide

    I have a Roll20 Plus subscription, as well as the official roll20 module for this campaign. This means we'll be playing on the official maps with dynamic lighting, which honestly it's amazing. I also have a lot of the rulebooks on Roll20, so character creation and management will be a breeze

    Gameplay details

    This campaign is both focuses on roleplay and exploration. You'll travel across the Land, meeting desperate people and defeating horrors in order to reclaim Barovia for the Light and defeat its Dark Lord. It's very well-rounded with plenty of social encounters, dungeon crawling, and mistery-solving. There's something for everyone.

      How will character creation work

      We will have a Session 0 to create characters and discuss possible relationships between them. I'll let the option open to start at level 3 instead of 1 for experienced groups. Here we can also dicuss any boundaries people may have for their roleplaying. We will use the roll20 character sheets. I suggest not aiming for powerplay but for characters that are interesting on a roleplay level.

      Players can expect

      • Combat/Tactics: Medium
      • Roleplay: Medium
      • Puzzles: Low
      • Experience Level: Beginner
