About the adventure

Adventurers find themselves in a strange new land on a cold and dark night. Drawn from across the spheres, these adventurers face an ancient evil in the land's Lord Strahd von Zarovich. The Lord has ruled over and terrorized his people for centuries as he attempts to conquer his love. The Lord is obsessed with a young woman named Ireena, who has the face of his ancient lover. The Lord believes Ireena his love reincarnated and will do anything to have her. But, she is not so easily acquired. She, and her brother, gather the adventurers to fight back against the oppressive Lord. Along the journey, the adventurers, Ireena, and her brother gain allies and make enemies. They will unravel the true history behind Lord von Zarovich while fighting back his army of darkness. But, in the end, will the adventurers defeat the Lord and save Ireena, or will they fall to the darkness and secrets hidden in the depths of this strange land? A Dungeons & Dragons adventure for characters of levels 1-10. Published by Wizards of the Coast

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a mic and free Roll20, DnDBeyond, and Discord accounts. We will be playing the game on Roll20, while using DnDBeyond to house players' character sheets. And, Discord will be used for communications.

What I provide

I provide everything that is included in prep work: maps, tokens, storyline, etc. for the campaign. I have most of the official WotC content on DnDBeyond. Players are welcome to develop their own tokens and or use official content I may not have.

Gameplay details

During Session 0, we will cover my rules for running a game, content advisory, x-cards from myself and players, and homebrew rules from myself and players. A list of everything discussed during Session 0 will be made available to all players. We'll have roughly 30 minutes for aftercare each session, and a debriefing after each chapter of the story (roughly every 1 to 2 levels). Each session will have one break that lasts 15 to 20 minutes. As well, I am available most of the time to discuss players' thoughts and ideas for the game.
