About the adventure
Curse of Strahd is a gothic horror adventure that takes the players on a course through the land Barovia that culminates with a confrontation at Castle Ravenloft. Is it an extremely well written module? No! Is the book laid out in a way that makes it easy on the DM? No! Are encounters appropriately balanced for the PC's levels? No! Does it avoid harmful tropes, stereotypes, and theme? No! Do I take the time to customize the campaign for my players, so that the module is compelling and engaging? Yes! Do I balance out the combat encounters appropriately? Yes! Do I change some of the baked in content so as to avoid those harmful tropes, stereotypes, and themes? Yes! I bothered to read through this campaign book and customize it in a way that makes the module fun and exciting without sacrificing much of the setting, lore, or concepts. I do my best to make this a module that anyone can play regardless of experience, and I also work hard to give each PC their own moment to shine!
How to prepare
Please at least have a mic! I won't require anyone to use a camera. We'll go over the rules in our session zero, where we will create our characters. Please have your sheets and dice ready for each session!
What I provide
I will provide illustrations for each NPC, as well as top-down maps of each area and location, I have plenty of physical dice should I need to roll for you, and I will bring as many character voices as I can!
I typically start with a session zero, where we all create our characters, set boundaries, and provide a preview into the campaign itself. I can run the campaign as quickly or as slowly as needed. Are you looking for a year long campaign? I got you. Are you looking to get through the campaign in a few months? I also got you. Are you looking to complete the entire thing in a one shot? See my "Strahd Must Die!" one shot campaign!

How will character creation work
In our session zero, I will walk you through the process of character creation if need be. Otherwise, you're free to use D&D Beyond's character creation or make a character sheet the good old fashioned way!
