Today is Ravenloft day.
I plan on picking up the alternate cover on the way to my martial arts training tonight. The vibe I get is "mid-90's Castlevania box art," which is an aesthetic I am quite down with.
Will I run it? Probably not...but that applies to my growing collection of gaming stuff over the last year. I'll probably read it. I have a soft spot for Ravenloft, and I have since I first read this pretty terrible choose your own adventure Ravenloft novel back in junior high. I think there was a vampire in it named Erik Blacksteed. (Oh, 2nd ed...) One of my best friends in high school also bought all of the Ravenloft novels and passed them to me as he finished them.
Oddly, I haven't done much DMing of Ravenloft, overall. I ran a brief thing in high school and a not-as-brief Masque of the Red Death thing that I blogged about a few years back. I stole a couple of monsters from the Ravenloft Monstrous Compendium index for use in a Deadlands game in college.
Anyway, I'm still picking it up today from my FLGS.
