During the 4th Edition era of Dragon magazine, I recreated an idea for a 2E domain that I never got to run. Only a few notes were ever made, so it’s not like I got too much done in terms of progress. This was mostly because Wizards advertised an article search, including the domains of dread column. While I didn’t care too much for the 4E Shadowfell take on domains, I was more than eager to more or less make my own mark on Ravenloft. Needless to say, the concept was rejected and has long since stayed on numerous hard drives over the years. However, I’m gonna pilfer this grave and unleash the contents within! Here’s my attempt at fleshing out this concept for your enjoyment.
Note: This post will focus on the lore of the area. Stats are provided in a separate post coming shortly after. This will include the Darklord, his foil and various other creatures native to the realm. Also, I found out that my domain’s name shares the name of an expansion to MapleStory more or less. Granted, I don’t know if my idea predates it or not (2011, I have the rejection date from Wizards of the Coast somewhere!) Also included is a modest attempt at a map, albeit without more in depth tools.
