The Black Bat of Barovia

“Donning the cloak of noapte, wings like a snake’s hide enveloped the moon,
Casting shroud upon the land and welling dread in the souls of the wicked and impious.
Destruction and pestilence emanated from the buffeting of its flight,
Keening and lamentation, all that remained in its wake.”

DM Nocturne:

"I did not spend these countless dark years fighting and clawing my way over others of your ilk to earn the freedom to form this family, for you to take it away in one lifeless breath. The promise of Peiter's throat is an insult, Lady Kazandra, and you forget we are House Ulciscor. We will not kneel."

A hint of corruption flickers back into existence once more within the old Barovian crypts; tendrils of inky malevolence seeking to curl around the light, to snuff or to steal. Odd glyphs appear painted on the walls in old places, and whispers of religious chanting escape in the wind. A foreign service of undeath hunts their own kind to the end, forcing desperate measures made for existence, risking the eyes of the castle. Elegies of Angels draws upon plots carried out some years back, such as Undying and Malevolent Shadows, moving story and key NPCs forward.

*: Though paladins and good aligned PCs are not mainly involved, there will likely be later situations that call upon champions of good.

DM appreciations:
Spoiler: show
* Out-of-the-box/out-of-game-mechanic thinking is welcome.
* Embrace IC consequences (positive and negative)! Victory is never assured.
* Mature content is to be expected. Please advise if you are under the age of 18 when you are involved.
* Characters are rewarded based on roleplay effort and endurance.

Information subject to change.
