Ravenloft: Domains of Dread (D&D 2E) – Sean’s Pick, 102314

Another properly Halloween-themed Pick, and a callback to one of the great classics of gaming, to boot.

Domains of Dread is the core rulebook for the second edition of the award-winning RAVENLOFT campaign setting – the original fantasy horror role-playing game. Within the pages of this book, players and Dungeon Masters will discover the darkest secrets of the Land of the Mists, including many never-before-seen features:

– Detailed guidelines on designing anything from short-term horror adventures to long-running campaigns of twisted terror.
– Complete rules for generating player characters native to the Demiplane of Dread.
– Four new character classes specifically for us in RAVENLOFT campaigns – the avenger, the anchorite, the gypsy, and the arcanist!
– All new-player character race – the half-Vistani!
– Updated and expanded descriptions of the Demiplane and the foul lords who rule its tortured domains!
– Revised fear, horror, and madness checks to enhance the horror.
– New rules for power checks, plus thirteen detailed steps that lead from grace to absolute corruption!
