Ravenloft returns!

I just saw this news over at the Piazza. Ravenloft will be the next D&D setting to be revived by Wizards of the Coast in 2011. According to poster Dragonhelm, the following was announced at GenCon:

"Ravenloft RPG announced! Characters can play all sorts of stuff that goes bump in the night - ghosts, vampires, etc"

If the focus is on playing undead characters, the 4E version of Ravenloft is going to be a bit different from the 2e version where the main point was not to become killed by the Undead. Of course, as I remember alot of people did use Undead PCs in their RL campaigns back then too.



  1. 4E + World of Darkness, kind of New-School manifesto ;)

  2. It can turn out interesting. 4e as I hear is a tactical combat game. Now, the original Ravenloft was not a tactical combat game. The World of Darkness games are not tactical combat games. This can be something different... This is the first 4e product I'm interested in...

    I tried DM-ing Werewolf the Apocalypse to a bunch of folks, who wanted combat, and killing, and it didn't turn out well. Maybe I will recommend this game to them... :-)


Happy Gary Gygax Game Day 2023!
