This edition of Ravenloft was very well scanned and presented in book form. This boxed set had a high degree of difficulty in translation given the amount of free standing elements that were included in its original form, but it manages to read well and work as a unified product.

Early editions of Ravenloft can be a bit dicey to talk about. For example, there’s a chapter in this book titled “Gypsies”, making it a product that was wholly of its time. But that said, this is a dense and well crafted campaign setting with strong world specific rules and practical insights into running diverse and create adventures in a setting that’s about as far away from Sword and Sorcery as you can get.

This edition does not conatin Lord Soth (The Deathknight from Dragonlance), or… I want to say, the mummy and the desert realm, but if none of that matters to you, this is an excellent reproduction that can provide a broader and more flexible approach to DnD whether you use it for 2e play, or mine it for content.

I have been hesitant to buy older, pre-digital books, concerned that the scan quality might be poor or that the original poster maps might be missing.

I am happy to say that the Ravenloft: Realm of Terror set does not suffer from these problems.

The scans of the book are clean, and while not the level of a product made today on a computer, the text is bery legible and selectable.

The pages are straight, not crooked. The gutter in the center is narrow, presumably to "flatten" the page but this is only a smal detraction.

The original maps are scanned full-size and not in sections. They are colorful, flat, and the original fold-lines are not too visible.

As you might expect, the cardstock cards that came with the original set are excellent scans; flat, colorful, and complete.

Overall I am really pleased with this purchase. The price of $7.99 is an excellent value. I only wish other 2nd edition box sets were priced similarly.
