Please upgrade your browser or install Chrome or Firefox to enjoy the full functionality of this site.Count Strahd Von Zarovich is a tough opponent. Fighting Strahd should always feel dangerous, like the conflict will go sour from one moment to the next. He is described in the book in page You would do well by scanning it, taking a picture or taking good notes of all the info in that page for fast reference in game.
Strahd is strong in all areas, his lowest score being Wis However the score of most importance is Intelligence, which is often neglected when deciding what to do or how to roleplay Strahd. He has a score of 20 Intelligence, which is higher than the average mind flayer if you want to compare it with a race that is considered highly intelligent.
We also have to take into account the way action economy works in 5 th edition and other editions as wellplayer characters with an action and possibly a bonus action will always have a lot more to do in a round than Strahd, even with legendary actions.
They serve as meat shields for Strahd, they protect him and if there are enough of them, Strahd can simply disengage from the fight and watch from afar, gauging the PCs abilities.
Alternatively, if Strahd is alone, he can always use his Children of the Night ability to call forth swarms of bats, ratsor a pack of wolves. The ability is supposed to work in 1d4 rounds but I suggest having the effect happen almost immediately, or after 1 turn, or else Strahd will be unguarded for possibly 3 or 4 turns which is too much.
Spells like comprehend languagesnondetection and scrying are good examples of the ones you can change. I kept my players on their toes because all the time they were trying to guess whether Strahd had access to some spells or not. I went as high as level 6 spells, and if I wanted to cast more than one, Strahd always brought some spell scrolls with him.
Anytime Strahd was in need of a certain spell, he just used it. The game was more dramatic this way, my players really bought the idea of Strahd being a really powerful spellcaster and expected anything from him. Strahd is always protected by the Heart of Sorrow which equates to 50 extra HP.
After that is dealt with, or the connection with the heart stopped Strahd can do this voluntarily as a bonus action then Strahd really starts taking damage. He is resistant to necrotic and non-magical weapons. And he also regenerates 20 HP per round, unless he takes radiant damage or holy water that turn. He appears invulnerable, but PCs will burn through these layers of protections fast, specially at higher levels, hence my advice of always having Strahd with some monster companions.Under ranging curse of strahd is build with storm clouds under vampire against the wall of ancient Castle.

As the first blows of the fight were landed the party could see the twig creature re-emerge from the crack it had just crawled into.
The huge cask rocked slightly just before the crack burst open pouring forth dozens and dozens of the wicked plant monsters all over the eastern portion of the room. The mass swarmed towards the group as quickly as the creature's little legs would carry them.
After the battle, the party tended to their minor wounds and took the opportunity to help themselves to several bottle of wine. Both from the poisoned vat, and from the non-contaminated ones. Looming over the hole was a wooden loading winch positioned above the cart previously seen in the loading dock below. The rest of the party moved to subdue the man while he was prone. Rooting through some of the cabinets in this room was one final druid along with two accompanying vine blights, who were all vanquished by the party in short order.Animate Undead Mushrooms for Druids and Spirit Grove D&D 5e Monster Mashup #5 Nate & Kienata
The party signaled to the Martikovs hiding in the nearby woods that it was safe to return to their home. As the family thanked the heroes, the topic quickly shifted to the missing gemstone.
Dag said "If none of the druids here had the gem, they must have already taking it back to Yester Hill. The group left immediately for Yester Hill. West of the hill, the land, the woods, and the sky vanished behind a towering wall of fog. Dirt trails ran along two concentric rings of cairns that encircle the hillside. Each cairn was a ten-foot-high mound of slimy black rocks.
My spear hungers for blood. Retrieve it, and rule these mountains in my stead, just like the mighty warriors from the early days of the Whispering Wall.
The rocks of the cairn were heavy but rolled aside, revealing a blood spear lying amid Kavan's moldy bones. Rask took possesion of the spear adn the party moved on. Atop the hill was a wide ring of black boulders and smaller rocks that collectively formed a makeshift wall enclosing a field of dead grass. At first the party held their ground at the top of the hill, but when they realized the druids were more focused on completing their ritual than advancing upon them they began to worry.
The group started trying to subdue the chanting fanatics, but it was too late. Lightning was now striking the statue repeatedly as the ritual came to a climax. Ascendant campaigns can view previous versions of their pages, see what has changed and who did itand even restore old versions.

Ravenloft: Curse of Strahd. The Druids of Yester Hill. Last Update: May 21, I'm ready to Ascend! The Abbey of Saint Markovia View. The Village of Krezk View. The Wizard of Wines View.Game Master nilesr. Our heroes begin this adventure in the forests surrounding Daggerford. The woods are quiet this night, and the air grows chill. Your fire sputters as a low mist gathers around the edges of your camp, growing closer as the night wears on.
By morning, the fog hangs thick in the air, turning the trees around you into gray ghosts. Then you notice these aren't the same trees that surrounded you the night before. Bone tired, Gail had been dreaming peacefully enough at first. As the night drew on her dreams became darker and strange.
Somebody was watching her from afar, judging. It was as if her very soul was being peered through, was she found wanting? She couldn't say but it went on and on At some point in the half light of pre-dawn she woke shivering a cold sweat.
It was no matter they'd be in Baldur's gate by mid day. As a rule she disliked cities, but civilization did have it's charms. Warmth, good food, a soft bed, beer Looking around properly she muttered in disbelief, "I must be dreaming What happened to the pine trees?!
More than a little frightened, Gail croaks, "Guys, wake up. Something is very wrong! Malthorn stirred as Gail called out to the group, He'd drawn the short straw this round and had the middle watch, gods was he tired. Sleep had been a vague thing last night when he went to sleep, mist creeping all around. His watch was worse, as the same mist that made it hard to see also distorted the sound, The fiend from hell he was sure was coming; was simply an night owl he spotted up in a tree, after some tense moments of searching.
Valen night was filled with fitful trance dreams unusual to him and a weary mist shrouded watch. He knows to trust the sense of foreboding that followed such a night and so when Gail awakens the group with her cries he is not the least bit surprised. He gets to his feet and clasps his hand to the hilt of his ornate blade as he peers about at the strange trees. Talus' sleep had been filled with images of great gulfs of darkness separating fragile islands of life, mere pin pricks in a vast sea of inky solitude.
Such dreams were common to him, ever since he'd been awakened to the special powers available to his mind. Gail's call brought him awake instantly, the tall man rolling to his knees, blinkingtaking in what she'd said.
Noting the closeness of the mist and the differing flora, he opined "Indeed, Gail, Malthorn, Valen For a moment he contemplates reaching out and touching the mist, then thinks better of it, and lowers his hand.
Siobhan stood as immediately as Talus rose slowly.
