Road to Ravenloft
The Known World
The adventure begins in the small inland farming community of Dexterhaven, in the foothills of the Auroch Mountains, where small families eke out a bare living from the rocky soil.
Far away to the west is the effete capital city of Glendora, where the Baron holds court. To the east of the mountains is the country of Ur, where folk have strange customs and cannot be trusted.
Despite the fact that Dexterhaven lies on a direct road to the capital, trade is limited and strangers are few. Most trade goes by sea or by river whenever possible, despite the corsairs who prowl the coasts, rather than taking the long and winding overland routes over the rutted, poorly kept roads.
