Dark Carnival and the Mirrors of Madness: A Multi-table Adventure



Embark on a multi-table adventure that takes you and fellow investigating teams into the Shadowfell Carnival where a quest for Mist talismans leads you deeper into a sinister conspiracy.

Tindal the Barker likes to shock guests at the Carnival by boasting that he has no reflection. But somewhere in the dark confines of a hidden mirror lies the disembodied visage of a brooding mage bearing a striking resemblance to Tindal. When the leader of the Carnival troupers goes missing, a cold darkness creeps into the domain as malevolent reflections begin to reach into the real world.

Dark Carnival and the Mirrors of Madness is a multi-table adventure for Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft. Written with interactive events that bring multiple tables together, Dark Carnival is perfect for local community events and online conventions. The document comes with player handouts and rewards designed to be compatible with ongoing Ravenloft campaigns and organized play leagues. The adventure can serve as a starting point or side quest for any campaign that takes characters across the Domains of Dread.

This document includes:

  • PDF bookmarks for easy referencing

  • Tips and suggestions for organizing a multi-table event

  • Interactive events to bring the tables together*

  • 10 carnival games like quipper pond, roper climb, and ride the gorgon

  • 5 carnival acts including the daring chimera tamers and sword magicians

  • 11 potential group patrons from across the Domains of Dread

  • Player handouts, including a carnival map, poster, and rewards

  • Maps and stat blocks for encounters, including a 5e adaptation of the Ravenloft Fetch

*Dark Carnival can also be played as a single-table adventure by omitting the interactive events.

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.
