Tomes of Ravenloft | A Curse of Strahd Supplement

Tomes of Ravenloft

Vampire bites are not the most common bites but are among the most concerning ones. After you notice two puncture marks on your neck, which most often occurs in the morning, you must immediately apply leeches to suck out the vampire spit. Vampirism is transmitted by the vampire’s saliva. The more you can get rid of, the better.

— from "Barovian Home Remedies" by Sorine Hagi


Gone are the days of disappointed faces when you mention a book in passing and only shrug your shoulders when the players ask what's written in it! Tomes of Ravenloft is a collection of 23 player handouts intended to enrich a Curse of Strahd campaign.

You can find twelve tomes, letters, and proclamations mentioned in the campaign: The Blade of Truth, Castle Building 101, The Devil We Know, Embalming: The Lost Art, Goats of the Balinok Mountains, The Grimoire of the Four Quarters, Hymns to the Dawn, Life Among the Undead, The Oath Celestial, Rictavio’s Journal, Von Holtz’s Letter to Lovina, and Wolf’s Head Jamboree.

As well as eleven completely new creations: The Abbot’s Letter to Vasili, The Anti God, Baking (for) Children, Balinok Mountains Survey Report, Barovian Home Remedies, Killing the Devil, Legends From the Svalich Woods, Rituals for Mother Night, Van Richten’s Guide to Lycanthropy and Vampirism, and Travel Guide: Balinokova


This supplement is presented to you by author Christian Eichhorn and editor John Parker. You can contact me via mail ( or via Twitter (@squirrelgolem).

Hey! It seems a few of the "native" handouts don't have indicators of where to use them. For instance, "The Blade of Truth" doesn't really say where it would be worth using in the campaign, but it says it's mentioned. Is that something missing, or should we be looking it up in the campaign books?

Hey, thanks for getting a copy! I only made reference to the native books when I had something to say, so if they are not mentioned consult the campaign book, yes. This may either be because I had no idea what benefit they could have or if there's already a short description in the base material. If you want to place those anywhere else than the original spot, you could add some handwritten comments by the NPC who owns it to make them a bit more exciting. Hope that helps! :D

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.
