You might be accustomed to Ravenloft from the traditional videogames Strahd’s Possession and Stone Prophet, or extra not too long ago from Curse of Strahd—probably the most in style adventures for the present fifth version of Dungeons & Dragons, which sends gamers to the cursed dimension on a vampire hunt. The setting is about to get a refresh with a complement for the tabletop RPG referred to as Van Richten’s Information to Ravenloft popping out this month.
Due to Lysa Penrose on Twitter, we have seen the contents of this 256-page guide. Inside are new choices for gamers, making the half-vampire dhampir, hag-transformed hexblood, and simply straight-up undead referred to as reborn into playable lineages. (The reborn is the way you get to make your personal model of the Anonymous One from Planescape: Torment.) A few new subclasses, backgrounds, and new guidelines for Darkish Items are in there too.
The meat of the textual content is taken up describing the Domains of Dread, lands the place the cursed Darklords rule like Strahd’s Barovia and The Carnival, for all of your creepy clown wants. A brand new area named “Cyre 1313, The Mourning Rail” is talked about, and since Cyre is a kingdom from the steampunk-ish D&D setting of Eberron I would put cash on this one being a ghost practice.
After that comes a bit on working horror adventures, full with instruments for “concern and stress” and a pattern journey referred to as The Home of Lament. Lastly, the bestiary is stuffed with creepy classics just like the nosferatu, loup garou, and jiangshi in addition to a stable number of camp creature-feature stars just like the mind in a jar and a easy “swarm of zombie limbs”.
Van Richten’s Information to Ravenloft can be out on Might 18.
