Van Richten Dies in Ravenloft


Van Richten Dies in Ravenloft is inspired by Clue, turning the introductory Death House adventure for Curse of Strahd into a comedic haunted house tour and escape room while introducing a primary campaign NPC: Rudolph van Richten. In this Ravenloft, Death House itself is an archive of Ravenloft lore to immerse your players in immediately and provide foreshadowing for later events and locations. This adventure is compliant with Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft.

Van Richten dies in Ravenloft is a short adventure for a party of four to six 1st-level characters, who will advance to 3rd level by the adventure's conclusion.

Because Rudolph van Richten is a primary NPC in Curse of Strahd, the text includes guidance on the tarokka reading, his journal, and his role in the larger narrative. As van Richdead, however, he can serve as a valuable source of information and guidance in Ravenloft.

Content Warnings: genre-typical death and violence, kidnapping

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.
