The nights are growing longer and winter’s icy breath encroaches on your mantle. Welcome to the season of All Hallow’s Eve, or in the old world, Samhain. Samhain was seen as a liminal time, when the boundary between this world and the Otherworld could more easily be crossed. The dead, not so dead, and undead await you!
Lindsay and I have been discussing playing Dungeons and Dragons again. Fall and Winter are our favorite time of year and with Halloween right around the corner, we have decided to play through The 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.The Curse of Strahd
We would like to get 4-6 players signed up for a bi-weekly game night for the next 2-3 months. Previous experience playing D&D isn’t required, we can teach you how to play, we also have all the necessary game materials. I will likely use DnDBeyond to keep the campaign notes. The game style will be less crunchy and more story driven, as I personally prefer the narrative above the game mechanisms. Here are some primers for the uninitiated:
Please drop a comment here, an email or text if you are interesting in joining in. We hope to play either Thursday or Saturday nights, more details to come!
