Raveloft in Brief

If you're starting up a campaign set in Ravenloft, and a player wants to create a character native to the Domains of Dread, you can't very well expect them to read the entry in Van Richten's Guide for every domain before making their choice. There's just too much material to synthesize quickly, and let's be honest, your players aren't looking for homework before the game begins anyway.

To that end, I've made a quick cheat sheet to give the basic gist of every domain, which you can access here, if it might be useful to you. Each domain gets a brief description and a media example that, to my mind at least, captures its general vibe.
