Barovian Born and Raised


CZRPG logo

Experience Curse of Strahd like never before with Barovian Born and Raised—a grim reimagining of Curse of Strahd in which the country's saviors are not strangers from beyond the Mists, but native Barovians who have had enough. Stand boldly against the Devil Strahd as a human, dusk elf, or even goliath, and bring justice to Castle Ravenloft—or join the countless heroes who failed to slay Strahd von Zarovich.

Product Contents

Chapter 1 — Player Primer: Create your character with a bevy of hooks related to your ancestry, class, and background. The chapter goes through each resident ancestry of modern Barovia, including aasimar, tieflings, and the newly added goliaths. Determine your family and friends, discover the origin of your class, and other events of your bleak and miserable life! This chapter is spoiler-free and safe for players.

Chapter 2 — Behind the Screen: As the Dungeon Master, link your players' characters to the campaign in ways never possible with an ordinary run of Curse of Strahd!

Chapter 3 — Citizens of Strahd: Learn how to run the campaign when its heroes hail from Barovia itself. The chapter goes through the campaign's many mysteries and offers new adventure hooks to start the campaign.

Appendix A — Player Handouts: As citizens of Barovia, your heroes are already acquainted with much of Barovian lore, which you can communicate through these printer-friendly handouts.

Feedback or comments on the adventure are most welcome!

Hey there! So I just noticed from the preview that it looks like the Call to Arms table for Vistani characters is the same as the Call to Arms table for mountainfolk characters. I feel this is most likely a typo, so I just wanted to let you know in case you want to change it.

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.
