“Strahd isn’t a villain who remains out of sight until the final scene. He travels as he desires to any place in his realm, and the more often he encounters the characters, the better. The characters can and should meet him multiple times before the final encounter…”

-- Curse of Strahd

This is the story of one of those encounters. 


What secret lies hidden in the village of Aracos that draws the devil Strahd von Zarovich? It is ancient, reaching all the way back to the days before Strahd became a vampire, before Barovia was torn from the mortal realm and cast into the Demiplane of Dread. 

The Song of Aracos is an adventure for the Dungeons and Dragons 5e Roleplaying Game. The module is optimized for five characters of 6th-level and is intended to be used in conjunction with the Curse of Strahd hardcover adventure by Wizards of the Coast. 

In The Song of Aracos, your player’s characters come face-to-face with Strahd as the vampire struggles to understand the compulsion pulling him to the village of Aracos. Whether they choose to help, or stand in his way, depends on them, and the fates.

How can this adventure be integrated within the Curse of Strahd campaign?
Where is the village of Aracos supposed to be in Barovia? Could the location be changed for another place (like Krezk or Vallaki)?

Hello,

Song of Aracos is intended to be integrated within the Curse of Strahd campaign, although it can be played as a stand-alone adventure.

The village of Aracos is located along the northern shore of Lake Zarovich.

With a bit of tweaking, you could set the adventure in one of the other villages (Vallaki, Krezk, or Barovia) but you'll need to do a little bit of work on some of the alternative endings, because, as written, it is possible for the village to be destroyed as a result of the events of the story.

I'm interested in running this, but I'm curious as to how long it has taken you to run through it? I want to insert in to my current Curse of Strahd campaign for my players as they are almost level 6.

The time will flex some, particularly depending on the motives of Strahd and the ending, but I wrote it intending for a single setting adventure (4 hours), although to get through everything that quickly, you'll need to keep a steady pace.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
