Dark Adventure of Gothic Horror - Curse of Strahd D&D 5th Edition [Levels 3 - 10]
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on D&D Beyond, Discord, Foundry VTT
About the adventure
Curse of Strahd is a vivid exploration of classic gothic horror tropes and monsters, from werewolves to vampires, ghosts, and more. It is a true sandbox, providing players with the freedom to make their own choices and build the kind of adventure they enjoy. It is an unabashedly character-driven campaign, giving your player character an incredible chance to shine and make their mark on the story your group tells. However, Curse of Strahd is also a brutal, stressful, and alienating experience. Your character will be trapped in a bleak, gothic land quite different from the world they know. The adventure contains several encounters and areas that will likely be far beyond your capabilities when you first encounter them. It does not provide routine or readily-available loot or magical items. Each choice has a consequence and not all fights can be won. You are not the strong when you fight the land itself. Do you dare brave the mists of Barovia?
