Curse of Strahd - DM Guide - Elven Tower


Elven Tower presents a compilation document of all the content for DMs running Curse of Strahd.

This guide has been very well received by the DMs community. I have gotten great response during the creation of this content.

The guide is 78 pages long and contains hoards of information, guides, suggestions, and general information for DMs running this module.

  • It comes in a good looking PDF format with clickable index and bookmarks.

  • It includes a printer friendly version with no background.

  • In-depth analysis of every chapter and lots of tips and advice.

sample pages

This DM guide was created as a labor of love after playing the module several times. After the experience of playing all the way through a few times, I realized some information was either missing or elaboration was needed in order to enrich the game. 

Additionally, there are lots of small details that are easy to miss or forget. The links between chapters and plotlines become obvious after going through hem a few times. This document aims to make other DMs’ lives easier.

Hi, Incredible product, very helpful for my campaign, thanks a lot.
But, In the part that talks about the generalities of Barovie, there is a dead link.
The link that talks about the extended list of Dark Gifs. Would it be possible to correct this?

Hello. I would just like to point out that it looks like your website has been hacked. I am getting cross site scripting adds on, but not on other pages it seems.

Hi Koen, thanks for letting me know. Unfortunately, I am not able to replicate or see what the problem is. We do have control over the website. I'm not sure what is the problem you encounter.

Hi. The weird thing is that this only occurs on that specific page & my firewall does recognize it as a threat.
Never mind, I guess. If i'm the only one with this problem: It's not you, it's me :)

I'll look into it but I'm not super into IT. I'll try to troubleshoot it.

What sort of info does this guide provide that the Elven Tower site doesn't?

It is exactly the same. The only difference is the PDF layout.

Quite a few typos that would be caught by proofreading, but otherwise a solid addition to any Curse of Strahd DM's resources.

Please proofread the first paragraph of the Foreward. There is a duplicate sentence and another sentence with some missing words.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
