About the adventure

A strange letter with a plea for help and a promise of wealth delivered to you and your companions by a mysterious stranger. What evil curse plagues this unknown and unheard of village to engender such a desperate cry? Who calls to you from beyond the mists? What dangers lurk in the darkness? Do you dare to discover the answer to these perilous questions? ***IMPORTANT - MUST READ*** Curse of Strahd is a dark, brutal adventure that will test your prowess, fortitude, and ingenuity in very extreme ways. I intend to run this game with a level of gritty realism that will likely wear down your character's will to live. What is right will not always be obvious, and all morality will be heavily obscured in the mists that permeate Ravenloft. This is NOT a game for the faint of heart. Do you have what it takes to survive the horrors of Ravenloft and Count Strahd von Zarovich? “Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” - Friedrick Neitzsche

Additional Details

How to prepare

Each player will need to have Discord with working audio input and output. A webcam is nice too, but not required. DroidCam is a great app that turns your phone into a webcam. Each player will also need to download and install Fantasy Grounds Unity, which you can obtain at www.fantasygrounds.com. The Demo (free) version is fine, as I have an Ultimate license.

What I provide

All of the core rulebooks and many optional ones will be available through D&D Beyond and Fantasy Grounds. I will provide an immersive experience utilizing everything a powerful VTT has to offer.

Gameplay details

Lots of role-playing and social interaction. Learn how to use Fantasy Grounds, play D&D, and pick up techniques to fully immerse yourself in an amazing story. Combat is tactical and fast paced. The heroes are heroes!

How will character creation work

Characters are first level, and stats use the Standard Array +4. Pre-generated characters are also available. We will be using a mix of methods to flesh out your character, including the Sword Coast Heroic Chronicle as well as techniques learned and adapted from my years of performing at Renaissance festivals.
