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. This game is not for the faint of heart, or for the squeamish.

How will character creation work

Patrons of The Vagabond Tavern will create their characters at session 0. We will utilize for character sheet creation. After character sheets are made, they will be downloaded and imported to the shared Google Drive folder. Once this is completed, Patrons will have the ability to select a pre-constructed token piece, which will represent their character until their character is killed in combat, or the patron provides the DM with preferred artwork.
