Darklords & Domains: Red Death


Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.


What is this?

This is Gothic Earth where all spooky tales are part of reality! Gothic Earth is a Ravenloft Domain, copy of 1800-1900 Earth, ruled by the Darklord named Red Death which is rumored to be an escapee Dark Power of the Land of the Mists!

This supplement is a sample of the upcoming “Book of Darklords & Domains”. This is the last sample before the release of the main project. 

Inside you will find:

  • Lore and information for the domain of dread, Gothic Earth,  such as population, settlements, important landmarks, local fauna and flora and so much more.
  • Artwork, lore and ways to confront the Red Death.
  • A new plague, The Red Death disease. 


Some of the content in this book can and will be disturbing to part of our audience. We have tried our best to treat these subjects with the respect and severity that they deserve, but parts of Ravenloft, and the real world history and fiction that inspired it, have always been horrific in the extreme. If you or your group feel uncomfortable with that kind of material, we strongly suggest that you leave it out of your campaign. We have chosen to leave it in as we believe that these subject still need to be addressed, and that roleplaying games - like literature - is one of the best mediums for doing so.

What is the Book of Darklords & Domains?

A huge project of dread! Thats the best description I can give in a single sentence.

If you want to know what it really is though, let it be known that this project aims to translate all 100+ Darklords and their Domains (including former ones) to 5th edition. All statblocks are made with the lore and deadliness that each darklord is portrayed in older versions and novels in mind! Unique B/W artwork, new spells, new items, maps and important NPCs and monsters will also be included.

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.
