The Vampire Factory of Mad Baron Petrifax A gothic horror adventure perfect for new D&D 5th ed. players

The lights have come on in the old manse atop Chesu’s Peak. The town elders of Guntherstadt know this can mean only one thing – someone is attempting to continue the arcane works of Mad Baron Petrifax. Once again the sleepy mountain hamlet must muster its best and bravest to stand against whatever madness lurks in the dilapidated old house…and in the twisting depths beneath it.


THE VAMPIRE FACTORY OF MAD BARON PETRIFAX is a gothic horror-themed adventure by Luke CJ Smith &
Chris Sagovac for level 1 players.

This tutorial-style campaign is designed especially to help DMs of any experience level to introduce new players to
Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition. The game introduces game concepts organically as the party encounters them to help
avoid rulebook overload. It features:

  • Tips, tricks, and even complete scripts to help DMs explain important game concepts to new players.
  • A dungeon crawl that’s straightforward enough for new players, but with a rich storyline that rewards exploring, role playing, and digging into the lore of the setting.
  • Printable cheat sheets to help players learn combat.
  • Puzzles, death traps, giant spiders, and an underground vampire-spawning facility, all in a classic haunted house setting.
