About the adventure

"I thought the nightmares were a symptom of their madness. It turns out they were the cause..." ~ Dr. Gregorian Illhousen Curse of Strahd - Barovian Nightmares is a homebrewed modification of the original campaign adding more depth and options for players to choose from. The players will need to navigate the horrific dangers that engulf the land by finding allies from the different factions, be they good or evil. Elements from MandiMod and DragnaCarta, as well as a ton of personal homebrew modifications bring the Curse of Strahd like you've never experienced it before. Featuring HD maps from Beneos Battlemaps converted by Sunset Hollow Gaming for Roll20. Will you join The Keepers of the Feather and their allies to bring back the light? Will be tempted to the forces of darkness and join with the Cult of Osybus or The Barovian Witches to free Strahd of his curse? Or will you bargain with the Dark Powers to achieve your own goals? The choices are yours, but choose carefully, there are many fates worse than death in this land. Features: * Shorter 3 hour sessions to fit your busy schedule * Animated and HD Maps and Scenes by Beneos Battlemaps with Dynamic Lighting and Animated Effects added by Sunset Hollow Gaming for Roll20. * APIs that let you move your token freely between floors/maps and reveal clues. * Dedicated private Discord Channel for game announcements, roleplaying, and player discussions. * A campaign where your character's story and their development is just as important as the overall plot. * Community supported D&D Beyond with all the latest options for character creation.
