D&D fans who are eager to return to Castle Ravenloft will be able to do so in March!

Curse-of-Strahd---Cover-ArtCurse of Strahd will see the players taking on the vampire Strahd von Zarovich in this new campaign written by Tracy and Laura Hickman, the authors of the original Ravenloft adventure from 1983.

“Revisiting the land of Barovia with the creators of the original Ravenloft adventure has been a highlight of my professional career,” said Chris Perkins, principal story designer at Wizards of the Coast. “Tracy and Laura Hickman created a timeless villain whose faults reflect the darkest traits of humanity. I can’t begin to describe what it’s like to walk through the halls of Castle Ravenloft with its creators as your guides.”

Heroes from the Forgotten Realms and other D&D worlds can easily be drawn into Strahd’s cursed land. Once there, they must contend with the horrors of Barovia. Its people are melancholy, misshapen and grotesque, living in fear of the wolves and other creatures that serve Strahd’s evil will. The only hope for the trapped adventurers is to heed the warnings of a mysterious fortune-teller named Madam Eva. Drawing random cards from her tarokka deck, she directs adventurers to search Strahd’s domain for artifacts and allies to help the master of Castle Ravenloft. That is, before he orchestrates your demise for his amusement and feasts on your terror.

It’s certainly a different campaign for adventurers who may be used to Forgotten Realms, especially with the use of the tarokka deck, which GMs can use to randomize locations within the adventure, making the game replayable.

Curse of Strahd from Wizards of the Coast arrives in stores on March 15th.

    I’m surprised they re-introduced Ravenloft before Dragonlance
