Ravenloft Review – The Most Dangerous Game and Train

Happy Halloween! Stay safe and be aware that plague doctor outfits may have become annoying to your neighbors if you’ve been wearing them since early 2020 like I definitely haven’t been.

Anyway, welcome to the Lightning Round! Today we’ll be looking at Valachan, Cyre 1313, and nearly half a dozen other minor Domains. These last few are great for one-shots by the way, if you’re looking for last-minute Halloween game ideas (though I’d personally recommend just running Tomb of Horrors – great time for a Halloween game).

Ravenloft Review – Roll for Initiative, Scooby Doo!

More Domains, more Darklords, we’re back for another segment on Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft! Halloween is frighteningly (hah) close now, though the real fear yet lies in wait… Christmas music. It’s already started where I live, at least a little bit. Soon enough I’ll be begging to be taken by the mists.

Anyway, today we’ll be covering what I call “the Scooby Doo Duo (and Richemulot)!” Though any true Ravenloft Scooby Doo adaptation would likely be better served by replacing Richemulot with Kartakass, but alas the alphabet is a cruel mistress. Anyway, on with the show in Mordent, Richemulot, and Tepest!

Ravenloft Review – Tiger Insurgents, Werewolf Bards, and Flesh Golems, Oh My!

Welcome back once again to an extended review of all the various Domains and Darklords of Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft. Happy Halloween is growing steadily closer to being actually relevant!

Today we’ll be looking at the Domains of Kalakeri, Kartakass, and Lamordia – which is almost as weird a trio as last week.

Ravenloft Review – How Do You Even Pronounce I’Cath?

Welcome back to an extended review of Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft, going Domain by Domain. Happy Halloween again!

Today we’ll be looking at the Domains of Har’Akir, Hazlan, and I’Cath, which are pretty much only similar in that I have pithy one-liners already prepped for all three.

Ravenloft Review – Van Richten’s Guide to Halloween

For me, Halloween season started a solid couple of weeks ago. But that isn’t important right now, because what we’re here to do is prep for a Halloween of Dungeons and Dragons scares! And to do that, we’re going to review all of the Domains from the latest Ravenloft book. Not all at once, but still.

So just step on through that mist and we’ll get started. What do you mean “is the mist dangerous?” It’s mist in a Ravenloft setting.

Of course it’s dangerous.
