This adventure takes place in the Moonsea of Faerûn. The players have been brought to Melvaunt to search for the missing scions of the city's great families. To the north, in Thar the orc tribes converge on the ruined fortress of Xul-Jarak, flocking to the banner of a charismatic warlord. There, he intends to sacrifice the scions of the great families of Melvaunt in a bloodritual to Gruumsh. The players will escape Melvaunt, search along the wilderness of Thar for the Fortress of Xul-Jarak, and then explore the dungeons of the ruined fortress and hopefully rescue the scions before they are sacrificed. There also is a Web Enhancement by Eric Cagle on the archives of wizards of the coast's website designed to scale the adventure to level 8. For example, it replaces the Owlbear with a Tyrannosaurus. This is an easy to scale adventure with much of the player's difficulty coming from intelligently avoiding problems, choosing how to approach each floor in the most tactical way, and quickly adjusting when something goes wrong. The adventure has sidebars including common orc battle cries (In Orc!), ready to use orc names, weather and random encounter table in Thar, a description of what happens if the party fails or partially succeeds, and suggested minis for each of the encounters. There is even an extended description of the bloodspear ritual, an event the party is not meant to encounter in a normal run. The appendix is detailed for all the humanoid characters including the scions and their equipment, the named villains, and variety of unnamed orcs the party will encounter. The fortress also offers an opportunity to introduce the players to the Underdark and the Zhentil Keep. There is a passage to the Underdark the players can accidentally explore, and return to later. Emissaries from Zhentil Keep have come to watch the ritual and have their own motivations. These npcs provide an opportunity for exposition and role playing at a point which otherwise might be combat heavy, acting as a valve for the first floor - helping or hurting the party with subtle magic should the difficulty be off.

While traveling along the Trade Way, the characters see a small hut on the side of the road, and a spiked barricade erected in the middle of the road. Two men with cudgels in their hands stand on either side of the road. These two brigands proclaim to be members of the Waterdeep City Watch, but any Waterdhavian with half a brain knows this to be a lie. The truth is that these are common highwaymen trying to fleece travelers and merchants with a phony road toll. In this simple encounter, the characters can employ whatever inventive tactics they want to pass the brigands. They may simply pay the toll, they may try to intimidate the bandits or appeal to their better nature by making a Charisma check, or they might resort to violence. Or, they may attempt something else entirely! Encourage creativity.

How can this be?!

Experience the rad music of the 1980’s as it guides you from room to room, confronting horrors like the Brunch Club, Ghost Hunters, thrilling zombies, Ricky Roll, the Loonies, Prom (Barovian Winter Fantasy ‘86), a flash-dance off with hags, aerobics with undead, Jeremy Krawfjord, Kris Purkens, and much more! This 1980’s inspired PDF is professionally designed and illustrated by Gordon McAlpin (Creator of Death by Goblins!). Inside you’ll find hyperlinks to each creature and their stat blocks on D&D Beyond accessible for free! This PDF also includes hyperlinks to a curated “Weekend at Strahd’s” playlist on Spotify so you can wow your players and relive the epic music of the 1980’s as you put an end to the reign of Strahd von Zarovich!

This adventure is designed to play casually as a one shot in a tubular party atmosphere, it’s soooo bodacious. P.S. One player plays as Strahd’s corpse...yes, you read that correctly...one lucky player gets to play the entire time as the corpse of Strahd!
