Allies Against the Night

Fifteen heroic (or at least not overtly wicked) NPCs to add your Ravenloft Camapign or ongoing Curse of Strahd game.
This is the (unplanned) but requested companion book to Who’s Doomed: The Lords of Ravenloft, focusing on the “good guys” rather than the baddies.

The NPCs in this product use the sidekick rules reprinted in Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything, and that product is strongly reccomended. Some NPCs have no level and can be freely advanced using the sidekick class options found in that book. Others start at a higher level and have custom classes designed to match their character. Also incuded where necassary are variant options, that can replace sidekick class features found in Tasha’s Cauldron, for these characters or other sidekicks of your own creations.

Have your party encounter a rookie 5th level Doctor van Richten and help him face his first golem! Or introduce them to a 15th level van Richten who is near the end of his days, and trying to train the next generation of champions.   

Featured sidekicks include:

  • Ezmerelda d’Avenir, fan favourite champion from Curse of Strahd
  • Brother Dominic, member of the Order of Guardians, introduced in the novel Tapestry of Dark Souls
  • The Great Detective Alanik Ray, from Champions of the Mists.
  • Jander Sunstar from the novel Vampire of the Mists, who is absolutely not dead in Avernus
  • “S”, the not particularly heroic author of the Doomsday Gazeteers
  • The neophyte monster slayers, the Weathermay-Foxgrove Twins
  • And, of course, two versions of Doctor Rudolph van Richten: a classic rogue-inspired doctor and one with clerical spellcasting
