Darklords of Ravenloft (Fantasy Grounds)


FG logoO0n2smt.jpg

The Domains of Dread belong to the Darklords of Ravenloft—prisoners and overlords forced to suffer for all eternity—and yet Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft does not provide these legendary figures meaningful statistics. This product fills that gap with statistics for all sixteen Darklords but at various tiers of play. Face Strahd von Zarovich as a Tier II, III or IV villain! Battle the mummy lord Ankhtepot at 5th-level or 17th! Face the bloodthirsty Chakuna and despair, no matter petty powers you've amassed!

Every Darklord enjoys at least two sets of statistics, allowing the Dungeon Master to craft adventures that best fit their party's level. These statistics are predicated on three core principles:

Legendary Figures. Every Darklord is, at a minimum, deserving of the Legendary Resistance feature—for the Dark Powers will not so easily let go of their playthings. Even the meeker Darklords, such as the fragile Viktra Mordenheim, manage to shrug off blows and survive spells. Starting in Tier II, all Darklords also enjoy Legendary Actions. All Darklords have access to Lair Actions—except poor Hazlik, tormented by the Dark Powers—as befitting a Domain master.

Abstract Hit Points. Hit points are already an abstract means to measure health, stamina, and one’s proximity to death. This supplement embraces this versatility. Even meeker Darklords enjoy a greater number of hit points than their base counterparts. A blow might be compromised or blunted by the Dark Powers; it might even miss entirely, but drain the Darklord’s stamina (if not the Dark Powers’ patience).

Not All Darklords Are Equal. Obeying lore, logic, and realism, many of the Darklords have a ceiling of power. Try as she might, Viktra Mordenheim, a mere scientist, can never compare to the mummy lord Ankhtepot or the vampire Strahd von Zarovich. Although the supplement provides multiple versions of every Darklord, some reach a maximum challenge rating earlier than others. Some, like Strahd, have a higher minimum challenge rating.

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.
