Or anybody already did it?

I don't recall anyone doing it but that doesn't mean someone hasn't.

The quickest/easiest is just write stuff down on 3x5 index cards. That might be best for basic playtesting.

What sort of hero do you want him to be? He's got a big sword so maybe some sort of fighter? Start with those stats and at-wills and expand from there. Add some special abilities and fancy extra attacks and you're golden.

You're most welcome, Luca.
I'm afraid I can't guarantee anything with the files though because my old PC where they were stored is on its arse - it really needs taking out the back and shooting to be honest!

So cool! I hope you can find your old files, otherwise we can remake it if you still remember the cards.

BTW, that lore in the website was so nice, looking forward to see adventures with Strahd as hero.

Thanks mate - the general idea was that Strahd is stomping through the castle and sees the wedding guests as monsters and vermin - that way you get to use the same monster cards and minis... whistle

You have to beat the 'Villain' Sergei whilst Tatyana is running towards the Secret Stairway to throw herself off the roof. Even if you win Strahd makes his Pact of Blood and changes into a vampire. So it doesn't end well either way!

How about a scenario where Ashardalon has taken over Castle Ravenloft and kicked Strahd out, and he has to come back and reclaim his castle? Strahd recruits the adventurers who have been trying to kill him, because Ashardalon is causing a lot more destruction than Strahd did. You could call it, "The Devil You Know."
