About the adventure

🕯️ A series of local kidnappings lead you through the doors of a haunted house and into the mist-choked valley, Barovia. A dreadful adventure through this dark land will inevitably usher you through the unhallowed halls of Castle Ravenloft where you are awaited by the devil, Strahd von Zarovich. ⚰️ Originally released in 1983, 'I6' Ravenloft is a fond love-letter to classic gothic literature. Like the vampire lord arising from his coffin across the eras, the adventure has returned and expanded its influence over each edition of the world's oldest roleplaying game and games like it, culminating in the modern Curse of Strahd. Now I offer you another new take on the Barovian valley, revamped for Pathfinder 2nd Edition. 🦴 Strategize your survival with Pathfinder's robust three-action economy. Encounters are rebalanced with more special abilities and hazards to harrow your characters. Not every change solely benefits combat, though. Chase and Influence subsystems will give you more ways to meaningfully interact with NPCs. Do you flee, draw your weapons, or try negotiation? 🥀 Pop-culture touchstones for my portrayal of Curse of Strahd include its original literary inspirations, Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), Netflix's Castlevania series, and Fromsoft's Soulsborne games. If any of those reference strike a chord with you, then we'll have much to talk about.

Additional Details

How to prepare

🎙️ You'll need a working microphone, a stable internet connection, a free Discord account, and a free Forge VTT account (https://forge-vtt.com/). Webcams are optional. Before you join the Discord server, I'll arrange a short one-on-one meeting to confirm that you meet the above requirements, ask about your preferences for the game, and establish character concepts before everyone meets during Session 0.

What I provide

⚒️ Foundry VTT server with a suite of modules to add special effects for playing the game (animations, multilayered maps, and quality of life features) 🗺️ Fully illustrated suite of monster tokens to use with both premium and custom-made Foundry maps 🎭 A dreadfully unique cast of non-player characters, each with distinct personalities and motives 🎼 Dark fantasy ambience & soundtrack for encounters, exploration, and downtime

Gameplay details

Before Session 0 you'll receive a consent checklist to fill me in on topics that must be handled cautiously or outright banned for your comfort. Once everyone fills theirs out, during Session 0 I'll post an anonymous compilation of everyone's triggers. I can tone back some of the content warnings to meet player preferences, but this campaign is definitively 18+ and includes themes that are inherently sensitive. During sessions, you can press a button to pop up an 🗙-card on-screen. When the card comes up, we break and discuss what needs to be changed for you to feel comfortable continuing with the game. Around mid-session, there'll be a 10-15 minute break for grabbing snacks and bio breaks. At the end of each session, we'll debrief with any questions, comments, concerns, or points of inquiry. I'll ask everyone to share their favorite moment from the session and/or what they look forward to next time.

How will character creation work

Character creation will start before Session 0. I'll ask questions about what type of character you want to play and work to help you achieve that in a mechanically and narratively satisfying way. Characters will start play at level 2. The following Variant Rules will be in play: • Ancestral Paragon • Automatic Bonus Progression • Deep Backgrounds (Using custom options for this adventure) • Proficiency Without Level Character classes from the Advanced Player's Guide and Dark Archive sourcebooks are recommended for their mystery-solving themes—such as the Investigator, Oracle, Thaumaturge, or Witch class, although none of these are required in the party. You'll also get some use out of the undead-slaying character options from Book of the Dead. Books will be made available as part of prep materials. Third Party Content will be allowed with prior approval. The following Pathfinder Infinite content is pre-approved: ➕ Barbarians+, Clerics+, Magus+, Oracles+, and Witches+ by Team+ 🌀 Eldritch Expansion: Thaumaturge's Wrath by Eldritch Osiris Games 🐉Class Features: Subconscious Minds by Luis Loza
