About the adventure

A revised homebrew expansion of the Wizards of the Coast 5e Curse of Strahd storyline, For those, like me, who thought Curse of Strahd was lacking some necessary context. This game focuses on the horror and survival elements of the game to add the exhilaration of fear and terror. The monsters are scarier, the situations deadlier and the rewards all the sweeter. Embrace your dark side and join the adventures into the mists of Barovia, featuring the familiar cast with new twists and backstories to draw your characters deeper into the thick of it.

Additional Details

How to prepare

A webcam and/or a mic are required. Light rules knowledge is advised but not necessary. I use Dndbeyond to keep track of characters and build combat. A link for the campaign will be available to you once you've signed up for the session. I also utilize roll20 for battlemaps and combats when necessary so a roll20 account is advisable and it's free.

What I provide

I'll have digital copies of maps, handouts, and additional materials available as needed, as well as additional player races and classes that I will make available as they are implemented into Dndbeyond.

Gameplay details

This game is a horror inspired game with dark themes like trauma, depression and violence. It features dark characters, language, and descriptions not limited to acts of violence, sexual and romantic abuse, and gore.

How will character creation work

Characters will start at level one with new areas opening up to players as they advance in level and complete narrative requirements. In order to stress the survival and horror elements things like experience, resources, and precautions during rests and encounters should be taken seriously. As Barovia will do whatever it takes to strip adventurers to barebones and terrorize them to death. Feel free to create characters before hand and to reach out if you need any help or guidance in character creation. A light backstory can help anchor your character in the world and give me guidance for how to cater the story to your characters needs.
