About the adventure

*The land of Barovia has fallen under a terrible curse. Can you save these poor people from their wretched fate?* **Please note: This campaign is almost through. You will not be joining from the start.** We currently have an almost full party and we are looking for one or two more. Welcome to Dread Curse of Strahd. I'm Katy and I'll be your game master for this adventure. I've Enhanced the original module with material from previous editions, other guides, and some innovative content of my own. This module usually runs from levels 1-10, but this Enhanced version will probably go to 15, depending on player choices. This is a horror campaign; I will be leaning heavily into that and expect the players to do the same. Even if you have played or run Curse of Strahd before, I encourage you to apply. This campaign will be a very unique experience. Use any material written for players by Wizards for 5e. All characters get a free feat at first level. Use standard array or point buy for character creation. There will be a good mix between combat, social encounters and exploration. We use Milestones for leveling up. Sessions will be 3 hours with a short break in the middle. This game is LGBTQ+ friendly. We use discord for voice comms and memes. You will need a discord account and a decent mic/headset. The table fees are to ensure player participation as well as fund new books for everyone to access.

How to prepare

You will need a Forge and discord account. You will need a decent headset or mic/heaphones set up. I ask for limited to no background noise. Come prepared with a character concept and prepare to make your character before joining us for the first time.

What I provide

I provide all the maps, tokens, artwork, background music and prep work. I provide a premium experience and expect the players to bring their a-game as well.

Gameplay details

Curse of Strahd is a Gothic Horror adventure that features dark themes such as dispair, hopelessness, death, distruction and corruption. We are using several RPG safety tools: Hard/soft limits, X-card, and Check-in cards. I reccomend everyon read the Session 0 section of Tasha's and get familiar with the Hard/soft limits.
