Welcome to the Demiplane of Dread
You’ve all lost someone. Your loved ones were taken by the Chimney Man, a ghastly figure covered in ash and carrying a blood soaked bag that holds his victims. No matter where your life began, your journey led you to the city of Paridon on the Zherisian continent. Whispers and clues have led you to believe that Paridon may be suffering more attacks by the Chimney Man than anywhere else.
Paridon is a dirty, gritty, expensive city. It is the very essence of societal decay; the old money of King’s Quarters and the wealthy merchants of Shadewell vie for control of the city council. The alleys and shadows of Blackchapel are just as likely to contain a well meaning Newsbill reporter as a vicious gang, or perhaps even the dreaded Bloody Jack himself. Inhuman eyes peer out at you from the corners of Southshore. The fog bells and horns of ships can always be heard over the grunts of hardworking stevedores in the Docks district. Riverside gives the city a marketplace unlike any other; anything from fine jewelry to deadly and forbidden items can be found among its many upscale shops and back alley stands. Whatever you do, avoid the Bowels at night; too many a citizen have gone missing, and urban legends tell of a strong connection between this strange district and the depths below the city sewers.
In this campaign, you will travel the domains of Ravenloft, seeking clues and destroying corruption, all with the goal of rescuing your kidnapped loved ones.
