Strahd Loves, Man Kills: Summer, 2021 Issue
I bid you welcome to the inaugural issue of Strahd Loves, Man Kills, a Ravenloft fanzine. This zine was inspired in equal parts by my enduring love of the Ravenloft setting and by the recent release of Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft. My hope is that SLMK will give you new toys to play with and inspire your own unique take on Ravenloft.
The first issue features 28 pages of content. The zine is professionally printed by the fine people at Best Value Copy. Additionally, I will send a pdf version of the zine to the email address attached to your order!
The first issue contains the following features:
Lurid Locations explores the devil-worshiping town of Strega Hollow and the mysterious and miraculous wilds of the Wychbog.
Baleful Backgrounds presents three new backgrounds for characters: country squire, cultist, and cut-wife.
Seeds of Evil offers “The Thing in Elbert’s Parlor,” an adventure seed that posits a visit to an uncle who has just added a mummy to his collection of antiquarian artifacts.
Cryptic Alliances adds the Cult of the Rotmaiden, a circle of druids devoted to Zuggtmoy, to the factions operating in the Lands of the Mists.
Tragic Heroes gives advice on creating troubled troubadours for your Ravenloft campaign.
