Who's Doomed: The Lords of Ravenloft


5 Minute Workday Presents: Who's Doomed

The Lords of Ravenloft. Classic darklords updated to 5e
by “Jester” David Gibson

Have you played Curse of Strahd and want to face another powerful lord in the Demiplane of Dread? Are you a fan of the Ravenloft Campaign Setting and long to see the return of an old favourite? Do you just want a more powerful banshee, ghost pirate, lich, or even necromancer for your game?

If so, then this is the book for you!

Inside this product are 5th Edition stat blocks for the twenty-three darklords who rule the domains of the Core, along with the ten darklords who rule the seas and islands within and two important NPCs who rule their lands but aren't darklords.

Featured darklords include:

  • Azalin Rex, the once and current ruler of Darkon.
  • Lord Soth, the former darklord of Sithicus, and his replacement Inza.
  • The flesh golem Adam and his creator Victor Mordenheim.
  • Gabrielle Aderre and her treacherous son, Malocchio.
  • The misanthropic necromancer, Meredoth
  • And Strahd, who has been boosted in power level to be closer to his presentation in the campaign setting

Furthermore, a half-dozen darklords in this product have even been given Mythic traits and actions, as introduced in Mythic Odysseys of Theros! Surprise your players with a mythic Strahd and watch their blood drain.

While this product doesn't feature the lords of any clusters or Islands of Terror, if it sells well enough I'll update those as well and add them to this product at no additional cost!

When this hits Copper I'll begin work on more darklords and NPCs. Which might be pretty soon.

I am enjoying the supplement--it has many good ideas. I hope it sells well enough so that you are able to continue expanding it. I do see the document could use a second pass on editing, there are some clunky sentences such as "A gates of Castle Ravenloft open or close," instead of "The gates of Castle Ravenloft open or close." Also, certain mechanics are unclear. For example, with the optional Mythic Strahd, the text says "However, when Strahd takes an action, he briefly becomes solid just long [sic] to complete the action," so is this intended to mean he can take any action he would be able to take in his regular vampire form? I would write something similar to the following: "However, in his mythic mist form, Strahd can take all his regular actions. When he takes an action, he briefly becomes solid just long enough to complete the action."

Thanks! I'll get those fixed.

Yes, the mythic trait was intended to allow Strahd to continue to take his regular actions. Mythic traits generally add options and not take away. (I must have tried a dozen different phrasings for that power.)

I try to edit carefully and do multiple passes, but editing your own stuff is tricky; I could do a half-dozen more passes and always find a missing word, typo, awkward sentence, clumsy phrasing, or mechanic to tighten. (And, inevitably, when fixing a mechanic, introduce all new typos.)

I just want to say this is a great document. It is tempting to make the Darklords powerful, but with many of them, it becomes a test of wicked cunning. Perfect for a tension-filled adventure in the Demiplane of Dread. I really hope to see you update this with Darklords such as Maliglio, Ankhtepot, and more.

Publisher Stock #
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.
