So it looks as though Ravenloft is going to be returning to production with the announcement of “Curse of Strahd” as written by Chris Perkins. It looks like they have involved Tracy and Laura Hickman in its production and are continuing in what looks like a generous reverence for the source material that 5th Edition has produced thus far.
Ravenloft is possibly my favourite published setting, and I am currently running a 3.5 campaign that has lasted north of three years and used several 2nd Edition modules that I have converted.
The fact that I want to continue running the Grand Conjunction line of modules is the main reason that our group is still using 3.5, because though I love and respect that edition, I am completely sold on 5th. I am also running an online 5th Edition game using the Roll20.net platform and just love it.
So when after what I think was a pretty disappointing “Sword Coast” release they decided to step to the side of Forgotten Realms and into the Demiplane of Dread, I was ecstatic. I very much look forward to it, even if I understand that this still means we can’t produce our own published content for Ravenloft.
I am become death, destroyer of worlds.
