Curse of Strahd: Death House Script

Suggested Price $1.00

Anyone that's ran or peeked at Curse of Strahd's prologue, Death House, will know that there are hardly any area descriptions, and that the information provided is as dry as the [spoiler].This often leads to the DM dryly reading aloud the information provided: "This room contains a bed, a wardrobe, and a mirror behind which a secret—uhh, oops!"

The Death House Script solves that issue for you; an area description is provided for every room in the house, and written as gothic storytelling. Simply print this out, keep at your side, and you're good to go. No ad-libbing, no possible spoilers, no drab information about how many candlesticks are on the table.

Disclaimer: This does not replace the Death House module. You will still have to refer to the module.

Great descriptions, especially the ones for starting initiative! My players said they felt really involved & were motivated to kick those creature's butts (and then proceeded to do so). The singing ghouls alternative was amazing & got me to tes [...]

This is something that is definitely needed and should have been done in the book. It is well thought out and easy to follow. The only downside I had with it is some of the text felt odd to me, like in descriptions it would say how the players feel or [...]

This is a really thoughtful way to improve on a great little oneshot, saving DMs the time of scanning the text for things they want to/can say. Perfect for anyone to have in their toolkit should they need to run a quick pick-up session of Death House [...]

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.
