Countdown to Curse of Strahd - Van Richten’s Guide to the Ancient Dead

Countdown to Curse of Strahd - Van Richten’s Guide to the Ancient Dead - 1994

The Van Richten’s Guides for Ravenloft are what got me into Ravenloft in the first place. They are written from the point of view of a monster hunter, talking about how to track a particular monster, its strengths and weaknesses, and how to interact with the locals who may live near the hunter’s quarry. Almost all of the Guides are extremely entertaining to read. Especially this one, the Guide to the Ancient Dead breathes more life into mummies than one could ever expect. This is the first actual Ravenloft book I ever owned and still my favorite supplement ever written.
