Strahd Returns on Halloween in a Deluxe New Collectors EditionAugust 1, 2020
On October 20th, a legend returns: Curse of Strahd, Revamped, hits stores. Just in time for Halloween, this classic adventure gets new life in a deluxe collector’s edition.
Packaged in a coffin-shaped box, Curse of Strahd Revamped provides everything a DM needs to introduce their players to the chilling world of Barovia, in the legendary Ravenloft D&D setting.
The box includes: a soft-cover adventure book for characters from level 1-10, a 20-page Creatures of the Night booklet describing the new monsters that appear in the adventure, an 8-page Tarokka Deck booklet, a DM screen, a double-sided map, and a dozen illustrated post-cards.
While there are some changes, and some additional features, the story remains the same as the one that enraptured fans in 2016.
If you haven’t played Curse of Strahd, this seems like a great opportunity to jump in!
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. Far below, yet not beyond his keen eyesight, a party of adventurers has just entered his domain. Strahd’s face forms the barest hint of a smile as his dark plan unfolds. He knew they were coming, and he knows why they came—all according to his plan. 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.
“Spending a night in Castle Ravenloft has become a Halloween tradition,” said Christopher Perkins, principal narrative designer for Dungeons & Dragons, and this collector’s edition is sure to trap new souls in Strahd’s powerful web.
Will Strahd capture you this Halloween? Or will you bring about an end that’s a long time coming?
The outcome remains unclear; at best.
