The Paths Of Dread (or The Candle In The Dark)

Knight of the Raven

Was digging up more Ravenloft stuff for 3.5.

Here is the PDF I am using: LINK

There is the Knight of the Raven Prestige class on page 200?

All sorts of anti-undead stuff, offensive and defensive…

And an endless supply of Raven minions to annoy your enemies!


Kind of like a Paladin of Ravenloft itself…
if that makes any sense?


Just keeping my anxiety-powered mind busy with music…

Transferring front-page message to here…

Also: Been working with Twilight on campaign music to keep me busy…

Here are some optional theme songs for each of the party members;

>Ben, Reverend Harrison Gungrave: Castlevania Inspired

Castlevania – Vampire Killer (Orchestral) [3:05]<


>Dan, Ash Hill: Sons of Perdition Inspired

The Shadow of the Undertaker [3:38]<


>Gail, Miss Belladonna : Mary Poppins Inspired

Chim Chim Cher-re – Mary Poppins – The Eden Symphony Orchestra [3:30]<


>Kirby, Silus Witchcrest: Dark Celtic Inspired?



>John, “Sue”; Lone Wanderer Inspired?

God’s Gonna Cut You Down (Instrumental) by Johnny Cash


>Will, Clint Harland; Bloodborne Inspired

Bloodborne “Beckon a Foul Beast” (Original song inspired by Bloodborne)


>"The Wolf"

Saberwulf Xbox Hidden Theme


>Terry, Ernest Cain: Cursed Fate Inspired?


The idea is that is has symbolic connection, is atmospheric music
and stays within 3-4 minute range.


In addition;
we have compiled a LONG list of BG music,
from cities to horror to dark revelations to plain drama…

We have been trying to cover our bases,
but we haven’t done much on “combat music”… yet!

Point is: if you want to jump in, just send song links to Zach…

Dark Celtic, Gothic Horror, Mysterious Adventure, Psychological Thriller…

Goal is to stay true to the Ravenloft feel, but add a nice twist to monotony.

Not even guaranteed to be played at all,
but it is a nice resource to have if the gaming group is in the mood!

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
