In this episode, we explore Souragne, home of the murderous zombie lord, Anton Misroi, and setting for the classic 2nd edition adventure, "Night of the Walking Dead".

Strahd von Zarovich is DnD's most notorious villain of 5th Edition. Touted as being the "most human" and diabolically interpersonal villain you can run against an adventuring party, Strahd's roots run deep to the very beginnings of Dungeons and Dragons. By all accounts, he's tabletop Dracula, and he's here to stay.But with the boom of Ravenloft fandom from 2016's Curse of Strahd adventure, how much does Strahd live up to the hype? While trapped in his own Domain of Dread known as Barovia and torn between identities of tragedy and triumph, this decaying edgelord needs something new from the Dungeon Master to really have an effect on the player.Listen to more Ravenloft discussion through our DumpStat Ravenloft Playlist or through the biggest discussion episodes below:Curse of Strahd Ravenloft Van Richten's Guide Domains of DreadSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/DumpStatPodcast)

What they lack in experience they make up with uncanny humor, an advantage on sarcasm, and attacks of wit. They are ready to fight through the tempestuous storms that will arise.

Halloween is nearly upon us! For the last few years, we've reserved this week to chat about Ravenloft, but this year we thought we'd talk about a game that seems truer to the spirit of the season: Babes in the Wood, from World Champ Game Company. It's a delightfully spooky game about being a child lost in the woods on an endless Halloween. What could be better?  But that's not all!

DMing is all about bringing your ideas to the table, but some ideas reach beyond the story and dialogue to change the way the game is played. Today, 3 Wise DMs open a Pandora's Box of DMing ideas and inspiration for D&D 5E. From campaign setting ideas to new weapon rules, combat formations, vampire and dragon age categories, and more, in this episode, Thorin, Tony and Dave pitch the craziest D&D house rules and setting features they'd love to play with in the future. 1:00 Campaign ideas 1. Dark Sun for 5E: Could you resurrect the survival desert setting full of slavery and cannibalism? 2. Spelljammer space travel for 5E (Note: we recorded before WotC revealed it's happening) 3. Planescape for 5E: Plane shifting between different, wacky worlds and dimensions 4. Call of Cthulhu in Ravenloft with PCs like Van Helsing and Jonathan Harker 5. Celts vs. powerful nature spirits vs. Romans in a pseudo-historical setting with limited NPC magic 6. A prehistoric game with more intense magic and active gods, but low-level technology 7. Clerics vs. Wizards: A world where arcane magic has been branded heretical 8. Do you need to limit PC class selection in worlds with low magic or low technology? 25:00 Mechanical ideas for combat and encounters 9. Technologically low and high-quality swords with non-magical +/- bonuses 10. Injury rules and not recovering all your health after long rests 11. Weapon wear and breakage 12. An aside on Viking sword and shield usage 13. Capping hit points at a lower level 14. Combat formations: shield walls, pike hedges, etc. 15. New weapon properties and action: long reach, weapon grapples 16. Called-shot attacks (Aim for the eyes!) 17. Weapons that give an AC bonus 18. Improving the shield bonus, but making it something you can lose 19. Heirloom weapons that get progressive bonuses/powers as the player advances in tiers 62:00 Magic and magic item ideas 20. Expanding spell concentration (perhaps by allowing a familiar or item to hold concentration on one of your spells) 21. Creating unique spells 22. Places of power where players can cast unique spells 23. Rare spell components that boost the spells cast with them 24. Rebalancing charges 71:00 Monster ideas 25. The bag man and other Candy Man type horror monsters 26. Giving dragons wider age categories and introducing mightier Great Wyrms 27. The Corpse Flower garden 28.
