About the adventure
Around you, the mists rise, starting at your ankles but then growing until even the well-lit path becomes shrouded from view. Still you press onward, putting one foot in front of the other. A bead of nervous sweat falls from your brow, though the sudden drop in temperature hardly warrants it. Suddenly, you hear rustling ahead. Then, a flutter of wings. In the distance, a howl of a wolf. You are not alone. Your pace grows. This is no place to linger. Finally, emerging from the mists, you begin to see shapes. They're merely trees at first, curiously different those you know. Then beyond the trees, you see peaks of small houses. A village. Safety at last. The villagers, however, offer no comfort. They are aloof. Distant. Distrustful. Yet one brave soul takes pity on you. She pulls you aside away from prying eyes and whispers a single warning: "Beware the Devil Strahd." Welcome to Barovia, home to D&D's most popular vampire and setting of the Curse of Strahd campaign. Prepare yourself for horror, and keep your wits about you. You're going to need them.
How to prepare
This is an in-person game. Please bring your own character sheet (either printed or on D&D Beyond) as well as dice. Personalized minis are welcome but not required. Also bring something for notetaking as much as you feel necessary.
What I provide
I'll be working to bring the Strahd experience to life as much as possible. I will provide battle maps as well as maps of setting locations that can be taken home. I'll also provide access to all character building options via D&D Beyond to ensure full range of character realization.
Curse of Strahd is a horror campaign featuring darker themes surrounding death, loss, and classic horror creatures including vampires, werewolves, and zombies. While these themes will be heavily present through the game, we'll be setting lines and veils prior to the start of gameplay during a session zero to ensure maximum comfort for each player. These lines and veils will inform gameplay and ensure the ability to "fade to black" whenever needed. We'll also be ending each session with a brief Highlight Reel and Wrap Session to discuss the game session and ensure fun and engaging future sessions.
