Domains of Dread is the core rulebook for the second edition of the award-winning RAVENLOFT campaign setting — the original fantasy horror role-playing game. Within the pages of this book, players and Dungeon Masters will discover the darkest secrets of the Land of the Mists, including many never-before-seen features:

 * Detailed guidelines on designing anything from short-term horror adventures to long-running campaigns of twisted terror.
 * Complete rules for generating player characters native to the Demiplane of Dread.
 * Four new character classes specifically designed for use in RAVENLOFT campaigns --- the avenger, the anchorite, the gypsy, and the arcanist!
 * An all-new player character race --- the half-Vistani!
 * Updated and expanded descriptions of the Demiplane and the foul lords who rule its tortured domains!
 * Revised fear, horror, and madness checks to enhance the terror.
 * New rules for power checks, plus thirteen detailed steps that lead from grace to absolute corruption!
