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. You awake, seeing dirt all around you. Coughing up dust, and is that a cobweb? Looking up, your eyes see a clouded sky with muted rays of sunlight cascading down. Your body rests on a pile of gear as your head feels foggy about how you ended up in this hole. You hear movement near you. Several things are moving about...but something is different. There is something odd about everything now...

Additional Details

How to prepare

just need discord and mic as this is how I communicate mostly. Please create characters ahead of time so there is a chance to go over it and it does not cut into playtime. I also have a selection of pre-generated characters made if players wish to just jump right in or have a tough time making characters.

What I provide

I bring my compendium on Roll20 that can be used in-game. These include: Dungeon masters Guide Players Guide Volos Guide Modenkinin Tome Monster Manual Xanathars Guide A Heist on Roll 20 Tasha's Guide Fizban's Treasury

Gameplay details

Some gameplay may contain body horror and zombies. I use Lines and Veils as safety tips, players may address any issues by asking as well.
