"Tall shapes loom out of the dense fog that surrounds everything. The muddy ground underfoot gives way to slick, wet, cobblestones. The tall shapes become recognizable as village dwellings. The windows of each house stare out from pools of blackness. No sound cuts the silence except for the mournful sobbing that echoes through the streets from a distance." -Personal Journal of Renard Crott
The Village of Barovia is the saddest place in the land, its residents so terrified of Strahd that they rarely venture from their homes. The village lies in the shadow of Siege Ravenloft, buried under fog but still unable to hide from their Master's sight.
