About the adventure

"Welcome to Barovia, my esteemed guests. I have been looking forward to meeting you for some time. Yes, I know who you are. I know what you've done. And, if I am honest, I am more than a little bit intrigued. That is why I invited you to my little valley; I am looking forward to seeing what exactly you do in this realm of shadows, blood, and mist. I apologize if the manner with which you found yourselves in my realm was less than pleasant, but for now make yourselves comfortable. "Please, explore my home! Eat my food! Drink my wine! Make yourselves merry! . . . But remember, you are my guests. And if you should forget to act like guests in someone else's home, you will be treated as any intruder. Do not worry, though; I do not bite - much. Remember your host's hospitality and please return in kind. And if you abuse my hospitality, I will return that in kind." Curse of Strahd is a Gothic Horror Fantasy adventure by Wizards of the Coast. You will find yourselves in the sunless Barovia, where werewolves and vampires stalk from the shadows, and other monsters lurk without fear of the sun. Will you prove yourselves agents of good in this setting, or will you go down in the list of others who have come before you and fail to rid the land of darkness . . . or worse, deepen that dismal shadow even further. Welcoming players of all experiences, from complete newbies to the hobby to vets. All I ask is that if you have prior knowledge of Barovia and the module's lore/history/mechanics/encounters, please tuck that away in your minds and don't let it spoil the fun for you and your fellow players.
