I've been AWOL for a while, soo.... (Question)

...sorry if I'm asking about something that's already been discusses ad nauseum.

Anyway, the upcoming Ravenloft book, Expedition to Castle Ravenloft. Is that just a one-off thing, or is there a chance that it could lead to more Ravenloft books produced by WoTC? Just wondering, though either way, I'll be buying the book as soon as it comes out. Thanks.

It's a one-off thing, the first of a small "Expedition" series revisiting classic adventures from ye olden days.

It's probably also constructive to keep in mind that EtCR in all likelihood won't be a continuation of the Ravenloft setting in any form. They're going back to the well on this one. Over on the Fraternity of Shadows board, they have a couple of threads going right now about how to "revamp" Ravenloft -- well, this is WotC's answer.

On a side note, they just released the Table of Contents. Browsing through it, one finds many elements from the original I6 module but also a few things which make me raise an eyebrow and go hmmm...

Such as:
- the Three Hags (Tepest?)
- Elf Ambush
- Shuhul Ishai-Bal

Lastly, it seems WotC (as I anticipated they would) used the opportunity to place a few things from Libris Mortis. On the other hand, I haven't seen any hint of a Heroes of Horror link and that surprises me.

- the Three Hags (Tepest?)

Those are the hags present in the original I6 adventure.

Aaah, the three witches, of course

Good catch John
