About the adventure

Welcome to the terrifying land of Barovia. I have DM'd this module from start to finish multiple times and know it very well. There is homebrew, adding short quests to underdeveloped towns and mechanics, as well as making travel between towns feel more full. This includes monsters and mechanics from Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft. Please message me if you have any questions. I hope to make a campaign that feels alive, as such, please take some time to create your character's backstory. I am more than happy to help you through that process so we have something that is interesting and enjoyable for you. I will ensure our adventure is welcoming and inclusive to all players. Barovia is a messed up place with terrible people and your characters will have a rough time but you as players should always be having fun. I am open to any criticism you have as we play and will do my best to provide a fulfilling experience.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a working microphone. Webcam is completely optional. Characters should be made on DnDBeyond. DndBeyond accounts are free and access to all player options can be made through my account.

What I provide

I will be using Roll20 for combat, Discord for audio, and DnDBeyond for character management.

Gameplay details

Please be aware that this game includes mature themes. I will make adjustment after privately talking to all players prior to beginning the game, but there will be gore and lots of death as that is the nature of the module. Relationships are permitted, but everything requires consent. There will be no ERP in game.

How will character creation work

Leveling up will be through milestones pre-determined throughout the land. Character Creation: (1) Point buy or Standard Array; (2) Free feat (Don't powergame and do stuff like Sent+Polearm at level 3. The free feat is meant to add flavor and variety to ur character); (3) All official races and classes ok. Critical Role sub-classes also allowed; (4) No evil characters; (5) Warlocks have the option of being Int based; (6) Think of a secret your character should have. Doesn't have to be ur secret lineage to the throne of Gondor, but just something you wouldn't want strangers to know; (7) Why does your character want to leave Barovia? Do they have family? A chance to win gold? An estate to run? A business to manage? If your character isn't actively searching for Barovia, what were they on the way to when they got lost in the mists?
