Curse of Strahd (B&G Premium Edition version)
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20, Zoom
About the adventure
We will experience the thrills of the epic story “Curse of Strahd” using the Beadles & Grimms premium set. This set features neat extras, including: bonus missions, custom art, props (shared via cam), and AL certs if players decide to use it. We will also enjoy sound effects and props designed for the story. These are provided via Syrinscape, experts in ambient effects for tabletop RPGs. Finally, if Adventurers League play is chosen, I will mail AL game certs you may earn. You can learn more about and find current campaign documentation at dndadventurersleague.org Curse of Strahd is best for people who enjoy the gothic horror of classic black & white horror movies, as well as the novels from the 1800's and 1900's told in that style. The theme is an exploration of the difference between monster and human - and just how vague that dividing line truly is. This is an adventure where heroes may sympathize with the big bad and deal with moral questions throughout the story.
How to prepare
Players should download all applicable software and have accounts for Roll20 and Zoom, While players don’t need to have extensive knowledge of the game, it helps to be somewhat familiar with Roll20 and Zoom, as well as with safety tools.
What I provide
I will provide the materials for the game online. I can mail post-game certifications to players (particularly for future AL games).
Gameplay is largely dictated by players. Aspects such as social and exploration play cab be expanded or contracted as players desire. Combat is ran in a deadly style with opponents that care to survive. Cunning and negotiation, when utilized, will be helpful. The total number of sessions are set by the pacing the group decides and feel comfortable with. I will not rush players through any content they wish to deeply explore. A Session 0 is used before the start of all new campaigns, and attendance is required. During this meeting, we get to know each other, discuss the game, and talk about potentially problematic themes. We will be using Safety Tools during this game, including the X Card and Lines & Veils. The use of a camera and microphone is utilized for relationship building and as a safety tool, and as such is required for DM and players.
Safety tools used
- Lines and Veils
