In our Return to Ravenloft campaign, we want to introduce the epistolary into the game as a means of telling a story, as it is so often used in Gothic fiction. This forum is for use in creating these epistolary stories in conjunction with your role-playing on the chat and on adventures. Diary entries, journals, and of course letters, to NPCs and PCs both, qualify. The Lamplighters introduced the printing press, so pamphlets, newsletters, and clippings can be used as well. There's even an enterprising tinker gnome from Krynn named Gaterwondak Wegrecks that is trying to master what he calls a "telegram" though he has not yet had much success…
See Correspondence in Ravenloft for more information.
Simply make a new adventure log post, with a title describing the epistolary vignette in question, such as "Letter to Viscountess Annuska" or "Diary Entry, Dated 17 Fervidor". Tag it with your character's name, so that it is easy to find all of an individual's posts. We recommend this especially as a way to reference and refer to information gained on adventures, and to help everyone share in your character's story! To qualify for XP, your epistolary post needs to have at least 300 words, and you cannot gain more than 100 XP per PC per day this way.
When you have made your post, please enter it on the form below. This will make tracking EPXP easier on the DM staff.
You may track pending EPXP on the following sheet. Processed submissions will be organized in a tab by month/year.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact DM Cherry.
