About the adventure

Under raging storm clouds alone figure stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. The vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stares down a sheer cliff at the village below. A cold, bitter wind spins dead leaves about him, billowing his cape in the darkness. Lightning splits the clouds overhead, casting stark white light across him. Strahd turns to the sky, revealing the angular muscles of his face and hands. He has a look of power-and of madness. His once handsome face is contorted by a tragedy darker than the night itself. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind's howling increases as Strahd turns his gaze back to the village. Far below, yet not beyond his ken, a party of adventurers has just entered his domain. Strahd's face forms a twisted smile as his dark plan unfolds. He knew they were coming, and he knows why they have come-all according to his plan. He, the master of Ravenloft, will attend to them. Another lightning flash rips through the darkness, its thunder echoing through the castle's towers. But Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind-or perhaps a lone wolf-fills the midnight air. The master of Raven loft is having guests for dinner. And you are invited. The classic 1983 gothic horror retold, witht everything we love about 5e! You and up to five other players will descend into the twisted and malicious maw of Barovia. There will be horror, there will be loss, there will be adversity, but there will also be hope as you wade through the muck and grime to face the lord of these lands.

What I provide

I have access to many modules and official content to share with the players for no extra charge. I create the vast majority of my maps so there will be a quality of passion behind my work that I feel players will appreciate. Also currently I have many artists to recommend the players to if they want their character portraits more specialized. As a bonus some of these artists are willing to offer discounts for any player I refer to them.

Gameplay details

Players can expect a variety of both combat and roleplay encounters during this campaign. Players can also expect a variety of rule sets designed to make the world more gritty and to make players consider choices more carefully. Exhaustion will feature more prominently in the campaign if the players are too reckless, and the world state will change for better or worse with their actions.
