About this event
Not Your Daddy’s Curse of Strahd (NYDCoS) aims to be Curse of Strahd with a twist. Expect some elements to be darker and more psychologically horrifying, NPC’s to be presented in new ways, and story lines re-written to come at its themes of abuse and control from a totally different angle. Multiple safety tools will be in use, but player discretion is advised.
You will find in this Misty Realm women represented as more than just objects of desire or Hags. You will find a cross section of Barovian culture more colorful and diverse, whilst still being uniquely human. …More or less.
You will create four, human, level zero characters (instructions on character creation will be provided).
They will not all survive.
This is a Roleplay heavy campaign, with a focus on player agency. I will give you the space and time to figure things out in your own way, and will only nudge you if asked. If you are to survive this realm, let alone defeat its Dark Lord, you will need to work together. The “Lone Wolf” will only survive when it’s at the top of the food chain, and in Barovia… you most certainly are not.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy some of our Home Game in the Cloud sessions! We know that sometimes cramming multiple games into a single weekend each month isn't the right choice for every group and every adventure. In order to facilitate more games every month, we're adding some different ways of setting up longer-form adventuring.
For this adventure, you will be purchasing individual game sessions every week for twelve or more sessions (with some potential breaks where other events interfere with the schedule). Games will be on Monday nights at 7pm EST. Each game will cost $25 per player, paid in advance of the start time. For the following session, you'll receive a 72-hour advance window in which to purchase the next game before we open those seats up to the public.
When paying for your first game, please make sure to include your discord username in the pre-order form. Games will be organized on the Baldman Games Community Server on discord, so please make sure to join us there and reach out using the #i-need-help channel where one of our admins can grant you a special role that will give you access to your game channel.
