Or for those familiar with both adventures any suggestions? I thought I remembered seeing an explanation on how to handle this posted somewhere on the web but for the life of me I can no longer find it.|
Also although I've done my own conversions I am still looking for "official" 3rd ed conversions of Dr. Dominiani, Akriel and Radaga. Do they exist in any book published yet? Or have they been published on any web sites that anyone may be aware of?
Suggestion to the Ravenloft design team... put out a Ravenloft book of NPC similar to the one with all the Darklord stats. Update stats for all the minor characters from the older adventures and put them together in one book. I know I would jump at such a publication and I'm sure many others would as well.

For the record, I made him a psionic/enchanter/mesmerist (from the classic Champions of Darkness accessory).
Don't know how I'll use him in Bleak House, but I'm not too worried. That's a long way away.
|#3mortaviusJan 30, 2004 11:45:13||I would make Akriel a Bard, like she is in the book. Radaga's class as well, I see no need to change.|
As for Dr. Dominiani, I forget what he is listed as in Bleak House, but my first instinct is to make him a high level Expert. Dominiani doesn't study magic, he studies mentalism. I see no reason to give him spellcasting ability, and personally, I think making him a Psion would also be too much.

Not sure if you read my notes under the grand conjunction thread but that's exactly where I am with my party too.
I also found an interesting campaign log of another group that went through FoG.
Haven't had time to read the whole thing yet though.
|#5zombiegleemaxJan 30, 2004 11:46:45||did you remember to make him a Nosferatu that drinks spinal fluid?|
|#6zombiegleemaxJan 30, 2004 14:28:01||Cerebral vampire. Yes, my young friend. |
|#7platinumwarlockJan 30, 2004 14:28:18||If you have it, the Cerebral Vampire adjustments are made for 3e on page 153 of Denizens of Darkness. Essentially, they're Nosferatu, but the Intelligence drain is dealt with as well.|

To each his own. I'm dealing with four 10th level characters.
|#9zombiegleemaxJan 30, 2004 22:43:31||AHEM! 3 10th + 1 8th heh. Sorry just had to burst his bubble on that but Vincent is still the man.|

If the PC's kill Dr. D, you assume that he is resurrected by the mists the same way Baron Metus is. When they meet him at the Asylum, he remembers them and thanks them for killing him and ending his curse of undeath. To prove it, he opens the drapes and bathes in the sunlight. (As a unique nosferatu, he was vulnerable to the sun, but as a cerebral vamp, he's not.)|
That should put them off guard long enough to run the adventure.
