Curse of strahd
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.
Chapter One: The death house
Curse of Strahd is designed to start the players at Level 3, but they have provided a "starter" adventure aptly named "The Death House" for players at level 1. We have created our own version, which starts with the players each receiving a strange letter containing an eloborate invitation, inviting them to attend a party at the notorious Death House.
Our heroes ventured forth to an auspicious manor, known only as The Death House... Why had they been invited? Who are the hosts? Who are the other guests? WIll they survive the night?
CHapter two: into the mists
After (mostly) surviving the dreaded Dead House, the remaining adventurers set off home; however it soon becomes clear that they are not near Waterdeep any more... they are surrounded by unfamiliar landmarks and by a strange cold mist...
This is Chapter two of our play through of the Curse of Strahd Adventure module and focuses on the adventures first adventures in Barovia!
Chapter three: the village of barovia
After the horror of the mists and the desperate battle with the Red Vistani, our heroes were ready for some much needed respite...and what did they spy through a break in the mist? A broken village named Barovia...
Chapter four: the banquet of the damned
We were joined by three amazing guests for this chapter in which we play through The Banquet of the Damned by Goblin Stone. James D'mato from The Oneshot podcast, Aram Vartian from Godsfall and Michael Ross from the RPG Academy join us for a side trek adventure in which Saff, who has been separated from the others, joins three strange characters to investigate the mysterious town of Womford and solve a deadly mystery!
Chapter five: castle ravenloft
We return to Voron & Ulrich on the night before The Banquet of the Damned, while they investigate what happened to Ireena. Meanwhile, Saff & Greysen leave the village of Womford heading east toward Castle Ravenloft where a mysterious carriage awaits them.
Once again, we are joined by Aram Vartian from Godsfall
Chapter six: The Road to Vallaki
After accepting an invitation to dinner, which did not go well, our adventurers dived recklessly into the dungeons of Castle Ravenloft before barely escaping the clutches of Strahd himself. We rejoin them in Season Two, as they flee through the snow laden forests with Strahd's minions hot on their heels... Will they survive the night?
