Curse of Strahd: A New Dungeons & Dragons Adventure is Coming! **Updated**


** UPDATE **
The Curse of Strahd: A Dungeons & Dragons Sourcebook (D&D Supplement) is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Current pricing can also be found at the bottom of this article.

Wizards of the Coast has announced a new adventure for Dungeons & Dragons - Curse of Strahd. The adventure is set in Castle Ravenloft and the land of Barovia but adventurers from all over can easily access this area to experience the cursed lands and the trials that await them. Curse of Strahd was written in collaboration with the original Ravenloft authors, Tracy and Laura Hickman, too. The release date is slated for March 15, 2016.

From the article:
“Revisiting the land of Barovia with the creators of the original Ravenloft adventure has been a highlight of my professional career,” said Chris Perkins, principal story designer at Wizards of the Coast. “Tracy and Laura Hickman created a timeless villain whose faults reflect the darkest traits of humanity. I can't begin to describe what it's like to walk through the halls of Castle Ravenloft with its creators as your guides.”
Heroes from the Forgotten Realms and other D&D worlds can easily be drawn into Strahd’s cursed land. Once there, they must contend with the horrors of Barovia. Its people are melancholy, misshapen and grotesque, living in fear of the wolves and other creatures that serve Strahd’s evil will. The only hope for the trapped adventurers is to heed the warnings of a mysterious fortune-teller named Madam Eva. Drawing random cards from her tarroka deck, she directs adventurers to search Strahd’s domain for artifacts and allies to help the master of Castle Ravenloft. That is, before he orchestrates your demise for his amusement and feasts on your terror.
