Curse of Strahd - LGBT+ & BIPOC Inclusive
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20
About the adventure
Barovia Welcomes You Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as he turns his gaze down toward the village of Barovia. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind fills the midnight air. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner—and you are invited. **About the Game:** Curse of Strahd is the perfect adventure to plunge yourself into the fantastical world of Dungeons and Dragons! It is full of classic themes, adventure, action, and horror! I hope that you can join me in the awesome adventure, traveler! **About Me** My name is Victor. I am a Philosophy Ph.D. Student who professionally DMs, and I use my philosophy background to inform my DM style. If you're into the rule of cool, roleplay, and moral dilemmas (does the party smother the dragon hatchling or risk waking its parents?) then I am the DM for you! I am well experienced with TTRPGs, fantasy settings, and DMing (7 years experience). I DM multiple times a week, constantly honing my craft. I have run Curse of Strahd before, and I genuinely think it is one of the most unique adventures out there. I often re-skin characters and plot points to better incorporate and immerse your character! **Applying:** Book the session on startplaying.games. If your application is chosen, I do a 15-20 minute interview on Discord with all players. This is to see if they would be a good fit for the game and party and to give the player an opportunity to ask questions. If all goes well, I will then invite you to the game on Roll20.
How to prepare
Players will require a decent and reliable mic. They will also need to make a Roll20 account for visuals and Discord account for voice. The DM will be using video and players may do so as well, but it is not required of players.
What I provide
I will supply the module on Roll20 as well as my expansive Roll20 Compendium.
The players will explore Barovia, a curse and forgotten land under the rule of the Strahd, the dread lord. In their travels, they will make allies, enemies, and make choice that will ultimately shape all of Barovia. Do you have what it takes to end this land's curse? Or, like others before you, will you be consumed by darkness?
