Chris Perkins on Reddit


Hi. I’m Chris Perkins, principal story designer for Dungeons & Dragons.
I’m happy to take questions about D&D stories (including our latest story, Curse of Strahd) and life in the gaming industry. I find D&D rules questions boring, so I’ll probably ignore those. (“Your game, your rules!” is my motto.)
Also, I can’t provide any information that my company, Wizards of the Coast, deems confidential.

P.S. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Curse of Strahd revealed! Castle Ravenloft is waiting you!


Creatures of the night!

A new terrifying adventure is coming from the mist: the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovic is waiting for you.
Castle Ravenloft is waiting bold adventurers with cold blood ready to feed darkness bites.

Here the book description:

Unravel the mysteries of Ravenloft® in this dread adventure for
the world’s greatest roleplaying game
Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as he turns his gaze down toward the village of Barovia. Far below, yet not beyond his keen eyesight, a party of adventurers has just entered his domain. Strahd’s face forms the barest hint of a smile as his dark plan unfolds. He knew they were coming, and he knows why they came — all according to his plan. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind fills the midnight air. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner. And you are invited.

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.

Written by Chris Perkins, Tracy Hickman, and Laura Hickman, edited by Kim Mohan and Jeremy Crawford, and art directed by Kate Irwin.
