About the adventure

Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as he turns his gaze down toward the village of Barovia. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind fills the midnight air. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner—and you are invited. ⛈⚡️⛈ I have run this campaign to completion one (and a half) times so far, and have made quite a few additions to the vanilla adventure as written. This adventure leads from levels 3-10 and I can adjust this adventure to fit the skill level of any group. Beginners are certainly welcome to this grim tale... but, all should be prepared for the fight of your life if you cannot outsmart the great vampire lord himself! 🧛🏻‍♂️

How to prepare

Webcam preferred, though since we are using Zoom, you can always use your smartphone to join in with us or choose to join without video! No software needed, just an internet connection and a willingness to play. If you can, try to set up a DnD Beyond account before we meet for our complimentary session 0 to smooth out the process for everyone 😀.

What I provide

I've got all sorts of art and maps of my own, as well as connections to local artists who can commission character art and physical props/handouts for you guys!

Gameplay details

There will be a good mix of RP, exploration, and juicy intrigue, but don't expect too much in the way dungeon crawling and puzzle solving until near the end of the campaign, when you arrive at the legendary Castle Ravenloft ⚡️🏰.

How will character creation work

During a free session 0 (pre-adventure) we can all meet together to discuss preferences for character creation, inclusion of homebrew classes/races, party class dynamics, etc. If you create a character including any official D&D sourcebooks, I really shouldn't have any problems with it, homebrew stuff can get kind of out of hand sometimes lol :-) I also generally have a 3 or 4 session grace period for you to refine your stats and change smaller details on your character sheet (with approval ofc). I want help you enjoy your character in any way I can! Stats can be rolled or pregenerated (point buy or standard array). If they are rolled, you must roll during the session 0, and you get 1 re-roll before you can either choose to keep your rolled stats, or use a pregenerated method instead (I don't think it's fun to be stuck with a lame character right off the bat!!)
