Dungeons & Dragons 5e

About the adventure

Count Strahd stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft, amid swirling storm clouds. The castle spires rumble with thunder. The howling of the wind rises as he shifts his eyes down towards the Barovia village. Far below, a group of adventurers has just entered his realm, but not beyond his keen eyesight. As his sinister plot unfolds, Strahd's face shows the barest hint of a grin. He knew that they were coming, and he knows why they came — all according to his plan. A bolt of lightning rips through the darkness, but Strahd has disappeared. Just the sound of the wind fills the air. Castle Ravenloft's master welcomes dinner guests. So you're invited, as well.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Before the game, let me know when you're available to talk the rundown of the world, since it is homebrew. Things will be different to a degree, but basic knowledge of dungeons and dragons. I encourage you to have your own set of dice - we love using our math rocks, too! Make sure you have a Discord account, a DnDBeyond account, and a Roll20 account!

What I provide

I'll have my dice, my monster manuals - yes, multiple manuals - and all the maps in the world!

Gameplay details

The game would be Milestone based. Monsters in this game have been altered from the usual Dungeons and Dragons 5e system, to make some of the encounters a-lot more fun to be in. There's tons of exploring to do, and there are tons of encounters to take part in, and there are many adventures to go on as a party. Bending the rules is allowed - to a safe degree! It's fun to change things up from time to time.

How will character creation work

Starting out, characters will be at level 2. DnD Beyond is the best place to create character sheets so that I can access them, and we can have a quick chat to figure out what you want to play in the world!
