Return to Ravenloft

Update! The mists have parted and permitted the first wave of Tarokka Decks to arrive in our US warehouse!  We’ll be shipping these out right away so eager DM’s can foretell the dire fates of their adventuring parties in the Curse of Strahd!   You cannot escape your fate, the cards see all!

Wizards of the Coast have announced Curse of Strahd, a new Dungeons & Dragons adventure set in Castle Ravenloft and the surrounding land of Barovia. Written in collaboration with Tracy and Laura Hickman, the authors of the original Ravenloft adventure published in 1983, Curse of Strahd pits players against the vampire Strahd von Zarovich.

Heroes from the Forgotten Realms and other D&D worlds can easily be drawn into Strahd’s cursed land. Once there, they must contend with the horrors of Barovia. Its people are melancholy, misshapen and grotesque, living in fear of the wolves and other creatures that serve Strahd’s evil will. The only hope for the trapped adventurers is to heed the warnings of a mysterious fortune-teller named Madam Eva. Drawing random cards from her tarroka deck, she directs adventurers to search Strahd’s domain for artifacts and allies to help the master of Castle Ravenloft.

Players will also love to get their hands on a physical tarroka deck of cards produced by Gale Force Nine and available with the release of the adventure. The tarokka deck is a powerful tool for both Madam Eva and for Dungeon Masters running Curse of Strahd. By using the tarokka deck to randomize locations within the adventure, Dungeon Masters can customize each party’s exploration of Barovia, allowing Curse of Strahd to be replayed for years to come.

The Vistani have long been masters of fortune telling. In the hands of a Vistani seer, tarokka cards can tell tales of the future and provide answers to many a dark and mysterious question.

Tarokka Deck (73706)
Includes 54 Tarokka cards, as well as Prophet’s Gambit, a card game for 3-5 players.

Tyrants Of The Underdark 15 December 2015
Gale Force Nine Announces a New Board Game from the Creators of Lords of Waterdeep

Tyrants of the Underdark Is a Competitive Deck-Building Strategy Game
Set in the Tumultuous Political Landscape Below the Forgotten Realms

December 14, 2015 – Today Gale Force Nine announced they are publishing a new board game called Tyrants of the Underdark set in the Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast. From the same game design team that brought you Lords of Waterdeep, the new game pits 2 to 4 players against each other to take over territory in the tumultuous Underdark, mashing up deck-building mechanics with board control. Look for Tyrants of the Underdark to be available in Spring 2016.

Designed by Peter Lee and Rodney Thompson, Tyrants of the Underdark is a competitive board game in which you play as a drow house recruiting monsters, cultists and demons to aid you in controlling locations such as Menzoberranzan and Blingdenstone. Using power and influence as resources, Tyrants of the Underdark features multiple strategies you can use in crafting your deck of minions. Be the spymaster infiltrating your enemy's strongholds or the deadly war-leader concentrating on assassinating enemy troops. No matter how you decide to play, whoever controls most of the Underdark at the end of the game wins, unless there's some hidden strategy in play.

"We're always impressed with the creative people who make Dungeons & Dragons, but we were blown away by how compulsively fun Tyrants of the Underdark is to play," said John-Paul Brisigotti, CEO Battlefront Group. "We think fans both of D&D and board gaming in general will really love it."

"It's fun to be the bad guy sometimes, and Tyrants of the Underdark lets you participate in the machinations of drow politics without getting physically stabbed in the back," said Nathan Stewart, brand director of Dungeons & Dragons. "We're excited that Gale Force Nine is bringing a game like this to our fans."

For more information on Tyrants of the Underdark, check out the exclusive article on dragonmag.com in this month’s issue of Dragon+. Further information on Tyrants of the Underdark will be available on DungeonsandDragons.com and at gf9-dnd.com.
