I'm a long time ravenloft fan who, about a year and a half ago picked up the Ravenloft Core Rulebook. Its been a while, and though I hadn't started a campaign yet, I was hoping to start working on one soon. Now I find that there is a new PHB and DMG for Ravenloft, and I was wondering if any of you have this and if it is for 3.0 edition or 3.5 edition (I'm a 3.0 player, and if I picked up 3.5 my wife would impale me.)
Thanks for yer time!

The DMG is in 3.5 but there is probably nothing that was really converted from 3.0 in it as it is mostly advice and occasionally new rules. Generally its a great book that I highly recomend.
One other note Denzines of Darkness/Dread. The first DoD is 3.0 but generally crappy as it was hastily and badly updated from 2E. Dread is better and features more baddies but is 3.5.

One bit of warning about Denizens of Dread -- I'm compiling errata for the purposes of my own game, and I've yet to encounter a monster that has, for example, the correct number of skill points. Errors remain rampant. (Another example: Compare the HD in the ancient dead examples to the instructions on how to handle HD with that template -- there's no relation.)
