Ravenloft

Dungeons & Dragons adventures are more plot-driven and storyline based than they've ever been before. To that end, what better way to pay tribute than to revive one of the most famous plotted adventures ever made? Ravenloft draws from the tradition of gothic fiction to give the story of a blighted place where the vampire Strahd von Zarovich rules through terror - but it turns out your characters aren't there by chance. You're part of Strahd's plan. What part do your adventurers play? No spoilers, kids! Raveloft is also notable for the sheer amount of interesting action that can take place off-stage - if the players make bad choices, they may return to key locations and find that Strahd has wreaked chaos after them. The icing on the cake is that the original Ravenloft included some awesome twists, like a deck of cards that randomized the locations of plot elements and objects in the adventure. Even if you were playing Ravenloft for the second time, you didn't know where the legendary Sunsword was hiding.
