About the adventure

A shadow lays across the face of Barovia like a scar, the shadow of Castle Ravenloft and its cruel master, the devil Strahd von Zarovich. Centuries of immortal rule, pouring out terror and misery upon the Barovian people, long ago ceased to amuse his still heart. His malaise begins to lift when a group of new faces appear in his domain. Who are these strangers? What secrets do they hide? And most importantly, could any of them be a worthy match for the Devil Strahd? Join this ongoing campaign in through the Mists of the Shadowfell, and dare to face the Curse of Strahd! Session 1: Sunday, October 10 @5EDT Session 2: Sunday, October 17 @5EDT

Additional Details

How to prepare

What I provide

The Discord server will be used for maps, files, and dice rolls.

Gameplay details

Barovia is a rich and densely packed "Sandbox" setting, with lots of opportunities for roleplay , exploration and combat. Players will have free reign to search the realm high and low for anything that might be of help in the fight against the Devil Strahd. Keeping track of information and NPC relationships is vital, as is smart decision making and tactical thinking. Your enemies are many. Life is cheap in Barovia, and death even cheaper, and PC's are no exception. Problems will usually have more than one solution, situations more than one outcome and combat will not be a universal solvent. Player's decisions will matter and have lasting consequences. This game contains themes that some people may find troubling, such as mind control, mental illness, body horror, death, and stalking. If you think you might find any of these themes disturbing, it may not be a good fit for you.
