Expedition to Castle Ravenloft is a module for the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) role-playing game, released in October 2006 by Wizards of the Coast.

Contents[edit]

Expedition to Castle Ravenloft is a 226-page hardcover book, released as an updated and expanded version of the original Ravenloft module for the D&D v3.5 ruleset. This returned the adventure to its roots, stripping the demiplane setting of the Ravenloft campaign.[1] This expanded version was designed to be able to run a mini-campaign for about 20 sessions taking characters from level 6 to 10, with options for instead running long (8 session), short (4 session) or single session adventures.[2]:17 It includes suggestions for incorporating the adventure into an existing generic, Forgotten Realms, Eberron or d20 Modern campaign, but makes no mention of doing so in a Ravenloft campaign setting.[2]:19

Publication history[edit]

The module was designed by Bruce R. Cordell and James Wyatt. It was published in October 2006. Cover art was by Kev Walker, with interior art by Dave Allsop, Kalman Andrasofsky, Ralph Horsley, William O'Connor, Lucio Parrillo, Anne Stokes and Eva Widermann.

It is a reimagining of the original Ravenloft module, and does not pull in additional Ravenloft material from sources other than new design from Bruce Cordell and James Wyatt that complements the original.[3]

Reception[edit]

The reviewer from Pyramid noted this version's place in the history of the adventure.[clarification needed][4]
