Here are other great sites on the internet where you can find Ravenloft material!


The Publishers

Wizards of the Coast:
Official Dungeons & Dragons Website

Martira Bay is, of course, a choice destination for many of us, but we of the Shadows would prefer to stay here in the safety of Souragne's swamps, rather than risking the overzealous wrath of the Kargat. Amusing as they are dark, they could even be at par with us...but from the looks of it they of their "Mistress Kazandra" are too uptight in their actions. Personally, I think they need to be more liberated.
Wizards of the Coast, Inc., is the official Dungeons and Dragons website. Here you could visit the WotC Ravenloft Message Board to communicate with other Ravenloft and D&D/d20 fans.

Ravenloft: Sword and Sorcery

Yes we'd heard of those rumors of albino werewolves stalking the Core...but we'd never actually seen one until that time last spring when Viktor stumbled upon their reanimation chambers in Kartakass; lucky for him he wasn't caught. Suffice to say we still hear rumors of them conducting their perverse experiments all around...not that we can't do similar things over here...
Sword & Sorcery (a subsidiary of White Wolf) formerly published Ravenloft material. Check this site for old Ravenloft information and downloads.


The Authors

Secrets of the Kargatane

A pity...we absolutely loved that quaint little bookshop in Vallaki. Grabek still feels nostalgic for sowing confusion in the Malodorous Goat Tavern. How on earth that horrible Harvest Moon fire started, we still are at a loss for words.
This website, the former home of Ravenloft on the web (now closed) still houses the great Book of S_ series of netbooks, and a few good souvenirs as well.

Ravenloft Novel Authors

Some of the authors of the Ravenloft have web sites where you can learn more about them and their current activities: Christie Golden (and this chat log over the Vampires of the Mists novel), James Lowder (also check this interview), P. N. Elrod, and Laurell K. Hamilton. Unfortunately we found no personal site for these authors: Mark Anthony, Elaine Bergstrom, Andria Hayday, Tanya Huff and Chet Williamson (let us know if you find something!)


The Fans

The Midway Haven Alchemical Observatory

What's that you say? Star-worshipping weather-witches? We don't concern ourselves with such prattling miscreants, thinking that the stars above our heads are masters of our destiny...such rubbish. Go to the shores of Lake Zarovich in Barovia, you'll find some of them there. With probably the exception of Kristoff, we of the Shadows will have no part of it.
From another highly suspect individual, for accurate weather reports before traveling!

The Lonesome Road

That perpetually fog-laden road? Where does it go? I... I really don't know, I've never tread on it before. The others have, however, and they say it leads anywhere but where you wish. Don't look at me...once you set foot on that lonesome road, you're on your own.
An interesting path of knowledge, where new creatures unseen and unheard of before emerge from. Beware, though: all mention of Richemulot on the road has been changed to Ricoba.


The Mordent Cartographic Society

The marvels of movable type and printing machines are wondrous indeed...why, who could have thought a backwater such as Mordentshire could produce such excquisite maps of the known world? We might just pay the shopkeeper a visit; after all, knowledge of the lands and their positions is of vital concern to us.
While taking the roads is often a big risk, these cartographers make it easier to travel the Core and the islands. Excellent work.

Sebastion's novels

Looking for a good read? Try one of the thrilling adventures of Hector Vail - the greatest detective since Alanik Ray. They are truly excellent stories, though the author has a nasty habit of referencing some ridiculous, fictional place called Earth.
This website features several excellent stories set in Ravenloft.

Mrs. Weeds Website

You know, there's a myth among Lamordians: those who recreate the images of the living are destined to control them. Well we know of this lovely woman in Ludendorf who does just that. We never showed her our faces, of course; woe to us if she controls us as well.
Consult this site to see interesting Ravenloft miniatures painted with talent, a Ravenloft character sheet and interesting articles.

The Complete Netbook of Witches and Warlocks

More of these ghastly witches! Thank the shadows we don't live in Tepest, or we'd be meeting these decrepit hags almost every day. It's a small yet fortunate blessing for us that these hideous wart-covered, frightening beings are rare in this world.
This site is a very knowledgeable source on those wicked spellcasters. Don't forget to download "Liber Mysterium: The Netbook of Witches and Warlocks," a new d20 revision of the famous netbook which you can download for free!

Seventh Sea Compendium

There's nothing quite like a sea voyage; the salty spray in your hair, the sounds of the wind in the sails and the flash of cannon fire. Somewhere beyond the mists they say there is a vast ocean filled with all manner of strange peoples. I've never been there myself, but it sounds like quite the vacation spot.

These destinations are reported to be cold, dusty, dry and bitter; we suggest bringing warm clothing when visiting them.

These destinations are have been neglected so long that they've vanished into the mists. Sadly, the closest you can get to seeing them again is sifting through their remains.

The Ravenloft Renaissance

There's nothing more delightful and exhilarating for us than an excursion to Port-a-Lucine, the so-called City of Illumination. Absolutely wonderful--it's the City with more libraries, laboratories and centers of knowledge per square capita than any other place in the world! Of course, most of them are private property...but we love a challenge. It's not like we could ever be stopped by selfish fops from getting what we want...
A website detailing Ravenloft's most advanced domains in the Northwest Core.

The Living Death Campaign

A lot of our visitors and esteemed brethren have reported to us of "Earth", an absolutely huge and wonderful place filled with machinery powered purely by steam and coal. We still have to see a vision or hold a relic from this realm...but once a person comes to us with material proof that Earth does exist, we'll be, um, extracting the best information we can get from him or her in no time at all.
Set in a dark Gothic world that mostly mirrors Earth of the late 1890's, and which uses a modified version of standard Ravenloft rules, the Masque of the Red Death campaign stretches the limits of D&D gaming. Eric Van Rijn claims to come from here; he blanched while looking at their documents.
