    About the adventure

    Sessions 0 and 1 are at no charge to you so that you can decide for yourself if we’re a good fit. A retelling of the classic introductory adventure to Curse of Strahd, Death House: Revamped is the entry point into the land of Barovia, a distant land obscured by an otherworldly mist. The moon above casts its silver light upon the valley, doing little to penetrate the ever-present fog. Villages huddle here and there, little more than isolated hamlets, pinpoints of light amongst the darkness. In the distance, a gothic castle stands tall and imposing, looming over the vale like a silent sentinel. Your characters will begin the adventure at level 2. You have been gathered to solve the mystery of Lucy Westenra, a young lady who died of unknown causes in her fiancé's family manor- better known as Death House. Those of you who survive will emerge from Death House at level 4. Be warned: Curse of Strahd is a particularly dangerous module- character death is a real threat in this world, and even death may not be the end of your character's journey. Barovia is a dangerous country with all the elements of classic gothic horror- vampires, witches, werewolves, and more. Can you bring the sun back to this accursed land?

    How to prepare

    Webcam is optional and ONLY if all players agree. My games use Foundry VTT for maps, tokens and spell animations, a boosted Discord server for voice, and SoundTale for audio in order to provide a high quality immersive experience. Games will be played with my primary language, English. You will be required to use a browser capable of hardware acceleration (commonly Chrome or Firefox) and make an account on the Forge, a hosting service for Foundry VTT. You will not be required to purchase any secondary content. You will require a decent microphone and headphones. You will need to give me character art before the start of session 1.

    What I provide

    I’ve purchased every book on D&D Beyond, and that content will be shared with you via the character creator. All UA is allowed, and homebrew content is considered on a case-by-case basis.

    Gameplay details

    Please know up front that while my table has a lot of wholesome moments, it’s absolutely NSFW. We’re gonna violently kill some gory monsters and deal with some fairly adult material. It’s entirely possible that you may find yourself presented with romantic options and “fade to black” moments. There are villains that deal with the overarching themes of racism, misogyny and other deplorable viewpoints. While they’re some truly awful characters, you have my word that you will never see an act of sexual violence “on-screen”. For safety, all players have access to and are encouraged to use the “X-Card” system, which will automatically trigger our 15 minute break with no questions asked, to resume after the current challenge has been reworked over the break. The time listed is the average per session. Session 0 may be as short as 2 hours- I'll walk you through character creation, but it typically goes much faster when you come with a concept in mind.

    How will character creation work

    Your characters will begin the adventure at level 2. Please come to session zero with a character concept in mind, or a few that you've been thinking about and that you'd like to brainstorm with the other players to see if they're a good fit. We will spend session zero making our characters together on D&D Beyond. I have access to every published WotC book, and I allow nearly all published content, including UA.
