Note for Curse of Strahd DMs: I bought this and the next adventure, Amber Reclamation, intending to incorporate them into Curse of Strahd. My hope was that this might touch upon a town not already explored by 5e's Barovia material, the way the Adventurers League previously introduced Orasnou to the domain, a brand new village. I thought we might get an updated location from 3e, like Krofburg or Immol. Or maybe something really obscure like Jarvinak, which currently is little more than one line in a Ravenloft novel. Instead, the first half of this adventure is set in Krezk, a location familiar to CoS DMs and players. This feels like a missed opportunity.

Although the location itself isn't super exciting for DMs, the adventure does add a few mini social quests you can expand upon in the town if you want to, as well as a smattering of new NPCs. Once you leave the town though, the second half of the story is little more than a "random encounter" style encounter, with a conclusion that personally...See more

This story could fit nicely as a setup for a CoS adventure as the four options to enter Barovia in CoS are somewhat contrived. Most DMs like myself setup reasons for individuals to travel to Barovia, but seeking a group would be an added bonus adventure to add to the CoS tale. I read through the previews but the only reason given for the group to go to Barovia is that a group of adventurers was sent to the Amber temple. Sending a group into Barovia would require detailed and extreme reason/need. Who would volunteer for this mission of death without assurance of exit from Barovia or options of success? Is this something that is outlined as part of the plot further in the adventure that I can't see in the previews. A little explanation would help, without giving away the whole cake. I would use this as a stand alone, but the reasons may be embedded in the series, so I apologize if that is the case. Thank you.

Any chance of a quick/full-size preview for this like the others in the series?

You think quality can be measured in pages? :D

There's a huge system behind this adventure. Do you expect them to work for free? Besides, this is the fifth adventure with this pice tag, why react now?

No, please, take my money! This is four+ hours of fun for a group of people., and it can be used several times.

So I should assume that these modules are better than CoS itself (250 pages @50$, 0.2$/page vs 0.35$/page of the module).
It should be exactly 75% better than CoS to justify the price tag.
I hope you like being ripped off.

Prices don't work like that! CoS was made by a massive company that benefits from economies of scale. While it's highly unlikely this can be said for the creaters of this product. Who also have to pay WOTC 50% of their sales as well. More importantly nobody is forcing you to buy this product! Those who do buy it have obviously decided it is worth the money.

I hope you enjoy your small and entitled world view but I somehow doubt it!

This is a D&D Adventurer's League product. They *are* WotC.

Not exactly. AL is partially controlled by WOTC, but the folks that are admins are not directly controlled by them.

The authors are also not WOTC employees, and while they do get a budget from WOTC and some art from them, as well as some other assistance, I imagine, they're still freelancers that mostly get paid from royalties from these adventures. I don't know the details, I'm not one of the AL authors myself.

And I imagine they still have to pay the DM'S Guild and WotC cuts of royalties, and perhaps even share some of it with their artists and other folks as well.

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.
