Fleshing Out Curse of Strahd: Village of Barovia


A Full Guide and Expansion to the Village of Barovia!

Fleshing Out Curse of Strahd is a series of expansions and elaborations to the core Curse of Strahd campaign. The full series is a DM tool that adds depth to various NPCs, streamlines confusing plot lines, fills in plot holes, and alleviates some of the stress associated with TPK inducing encounters throughout the campaign. 

Within Chapter 3: Village of Barovia, you'll find the following: 

  • Location Advice & Adventure Flow. How might you present the various locations and events in the village? Who lives there and why is the populace really so reclusive?
  • Quick Reference Tables. Handy charts listing notable NPCs and the items available at Bildrath's Merchantile.
  • Granny's Pies. Advice on handling Morgantha's encounter and alternate mechanics for dream pastries.
  • NPC Advice. Expanded ways to tackle Ismark, the owners of the Blood on the Vine, and other NPCs in the village.
  • Ireena. A full and comprehensive write-up on Ireena, one of the most important NPCs in the game! How can you RP her? How do you get your players to like her? How does her story end?
  • Fighting Doru. There's another monster in the basement! How might you handle this fight without making it too easy or too difficult?

Like what you see? Keep up with the whole Fleshing Out series!

These are all amazing. My players are raving about their first session and can't wait for the next one, largely in part to you, MandyMod. Thank you! Can't wait for the future chapters

This has been BY FAR the most useful guide I have found for CoS. I've been using her stuff on Reddit to run my campaign. Yes it is free there, but its so good that I will gladly purchase all of it here just to give MandyMod some love!

I love the stuff on Reddit, but love having these version more. I hope my campaign stalls a bit so I can get all these from you as they release. Keep up the great work!

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.
