Domains implicitly drawn from other campaign settings?

Post by Angel Tarragon » Wed Nov 14, 2018 1:48 am

Could someone please compile a list of Ravenloft domains with links to other D&D settings? I'd like to know which domains are drawn from their respective worlds.

I'm doing the following from memory, so there may be some errors and/or spelling mistakes.

Kalidnay is from Dark Sun, featuring one of the city-states of a sorcerer-queen (though she's not a factor in or the darklord of the domain).

Sithicus, and more directly its darklord (the deathknight Soth), are from Krynn.

There's a wizard in the Nocturnal Sea, he rules over the finger-bones shaped islands and a few others in the nearby area. I think his name starts with an M? He's officially from Mystara.

Oh, Vecna and Kas were both darklords for a period and are both from Greyhawk. Major figures there, in fact (like Soth on Krynn).

Hazlan (the domain and the darklord) are from Toril. The mage is a former Red Wizard of Thay in fact.

That's what I remember off-hand. I'll have to go digging around to identify others.

The Fraternity of Shadows touches on this in their FAQ, Section II's "Other Mysteries of the Mists," Question 12. While they tend to address characters more than domains, looking them up in the Mistipedia should give enough information to tie any particular character to the appropriate domain.

I have a goal of wanting to strip out these domains and create new ones to fill the stripped out domains with ones based on macabre classical fairy tales. One I want to do first is replacing Meredoth with a domain based on the original "The Little Mermaid" written by Hans Christian Andersen, with even darker twists.

Azalan is from Greyhawk I think.
