Ravenloft Collector's Guide

Another superlative list, Echohawk!

There are a few things missing, but that's mostly because the Kargatane had several other quasi-official releases that, with the demise of their website, were lost forever. I had several of their other Children of the Night web releases, for example, and then lost them in a hard drive crash. They can't be retrieved now.

Also, a lot of great fan-created material can now be found over on the new home of Ravenloft of the web, the Fraternity of Shadows. Those are completely unofficial, though some, such as S and Azalin's plan for her are still very interesting.

That said, I should point out John W. Mangrum's unfinished release of Death Undaunted, which would have been an official Kargatane release.

Also, on a personal note, I'm proud to be the author (though not the designer) of the "Zakhata, the False God" Spellfire card. :D
 
Yet another list favorited. :D

Minor note, the release year on these two items...

Van Richten's Guide to the Walking Dead (February 2002)
Ravenloft Gazetteer: Volume III (April 2002)

Should be 2003 I believe.

Are you perhaps thinking of Terrors from Above and Haunted Sites, which were once official Kargatane releases, but weren't included when the site was mothballed?

I've been unable to find any Kargatane releases in the "Children of the Night" series other than "Demons". In fact, way back in 2000, the Kargatane site had this to say about that series:
One current series of Ravenloft products that the Kargatane fully intends to continue producing is the Children of the Night line. The next in this series, Children of the Night: Demons, will be released later next year, and will be the first Kargatane release to use 3rd Edition rules!
Did they sneak in some other releases in that series before releasing Demons in October 2003?

Also, a lot of great fan-created material can now be found over on the new home of Ravenloft of the web, the Fraternity of Shadows.
*nod* I'm a big fan of the Fraternity of Shadows, and it is usually my first point of call for Ravenloft research (included checking some of the items on the above list). It would have been interesting to see what additional releases might have emerged if the "official" moniker had been transferred to FoS when the Kargatane shut down.
Also, on a personal note, I'm proud to be the author (though not the designer) of the "Zakhata, the False God" Spellfire card. :D
Nice! All hail the Devourer! ;)

You missed the Gencon tournaments.
*nod*

With a few exceptions, I haven't included adventures that were written for/run only at tournaments in any of the Collector's Guides. I did made exceptions for those that were released separately (as part of one of the "Living" campaigns, for example). I'll take a look at those threads, though, and see if those two adventures warrant inclusion.

It's very cool to see that you linked to my collection of Ravenloft promotional rarities, Echohawk.

Have you obtained the new Ravenloft art book by Talon Dunning, "Out of the Mists"? That might be appropriate for your list as well. Link below to obtain a PDF preview or purchase:

Arcane•Marks: The Gallery Fantastic

:cool:

Heh heh. I believe your document contains the only pictures of some of those Ravenloft collectibles available anywhere online. I looked long and hard for those and was really pleased to discover that you had collected them all in one place. (I decided the menu didn't really count as a Ravenloft product though :p)

That's a great suggestion -- I've added it to the Guide.

Are you perhaps thinking of Terrors from Above and Haunted Sites, which were once official Kargatane releases, but weren't included when the site was mothballed?
Those two titles were created by the Kargatane for WotC at their request from the entries of two Ravenloft contests they ran (in the magazines DRAGON and/or DUNGEON, IIRC). When the Secrets of the Kargatane ceased being the official Ravenloft Web site, we had to take them down (along with some other material TSR and WotC gave us over the years) because they belonged to WotC.

Nope - CotN: Demons was the only release in that series, so you have them all. B-)

Once again, *excellent* work on this compilation list, Echohawk!

Whoops, just now noticed this! :blush:

Apparently, those were what I was thinking of. I did some checking, and you're right that there weren't any other CotN releases. I just knew they did have some other official products that were lost when the site closed down.

Amazing job! I'll be using this to double check Mistipedia for anything missing... :)

A few nitpicks:
Unhallowed 11/60: Van Richten

If I'm not mistaken, this mini is called "Vampire Hunter" and isn't Van Richten. Not directly Ravenloft related, though it would be fine for use in Ravenloft.

Also on the mini front, there's the apocryphal Suul/Azalin miniature, and several Soth minis from the Dragonlance line that could be considered equally Ravenloft-y. (RP Soth standing and mounted 11-064 and Lord Soth's Charge boxed set and the D&D minis Giants of Legend #36 Lord Soth)

And, the "Mouspad" is actually spelled "Mauspad", (It's German). Yes, it's a typo in the Catman Jim's Museum of Rarities .pdf.

Any proof of that Ravenloft Sweatshirt? we discussed a Ravenloft sweater in that same thread, but no one was sure if one was made.

Nitpicks are good :)

Unhallowed 11/60: Van Richten

That should be 10/60 -- fixed!

Also on the mini front, there's the apocryphal Suul/Azalin miniature, and several Soth minis from the Dragonlance line that could be considered equally Ravenloft-y. (RP Soth standing and mounted 11-064 and Lord Soth's Charge boxed set and the D&D minis Giants of Legend #36 Lord Soth)
I think I'll leave those to the Dragonlance collector's guide, since they weren't produced during Soth's sojourn into Ravenloft, but when he was clearly a Dragonlance resident. (Plus, I haven't included other Dragonlance mentions of Soth, or the Aspect of Vecna mini in this guide.)

And, the "Mouspad" is actually spelled "Mauspad", (It's German). Yes, it's a typo in the Catman Jim's Museum of Rarities .pdf.
Whoops. I'll fix that too.

Any proof of that Ravenloft Sweatshirt? we discussed a Ravenloft sweater in that same thread, but no one was sure if one was made.
Alas, no proof. I think my source for that item was the Tome of Treasures, which is generally very reliable. But I wasn't able to find a picture of the sweatshirt, or any corroborating evidence anywhere else. (The various bits of D&D clothing made over the years have been very hard to get definitive proof of for many settings :.-( )

Typically german. Translate the first word but not the second.

I have an Ultimiate Buckles Ltd. brochure which had pictures of the Ravenloft and Planescape sweatshirts. Unfortunately I seem to have lost those pages of the brochure, what remains shows only the pins and belt-buckles. Speaking of which there's also a colored pewter pin for Ravenloft apparently and a version for a key-chain:



Here are all the pics of the brochure: Link

Wow, that's an awesome find Thanael. Looks like I need to update a few of the Guides based on those pictures. Thanks for sharing :D
 
A few minor nitpicks again...

Ravenloft: Realm of Terror (June 1992)

This product launched the 2nd Edition Ravenloft line and I'm fairly certain it came out before any of the supplements or adventures, which have release dates of 1990 and 1991. Also, the foreword to Ravenloft Monstrous Compendium Appendices I & II states:

After the first Ravenloft Realm of Terror boxed set was published in 1990...
Speaking of Monstrous Compendiums...

MC10: Monstrous Compendium Ravenloft Appendix (April 1994)
MC15: Monstrous Compendium Ravenloft Appendix II: Children of the Night (November 1993)

I'm assuming that MC10 likely came out April 1993. Likewise...

Children of the Night: Werebeasts (November 1998)
Van Richten's Monster Hunter's Compendium, Volume One (February 1996)
Children of the Night: The Created (May 1999)

Presumably VR's Monster Hunter's Compendium, Volume One came out Feb '99. Finally...

Van Richten's Monster Hunter's Compendium, Volume Two (December 1999)
Van Richten's Monster Hunter's Compendium, Volume Three (April 2004)

I'm relying on memory here, but I'm almost certain that VR's Monster Hunter's Compendium, Volume Three came out in early 2000. Perhaps this was supposed to be April 2000?

Your nitpicks are all much appreciated ;)

Ravenloft: Realm of Terror (June 1992)
Fixed to June 1990.

April 1991 actually -- fixed.

Presumably VR's Monster Hunter's Compendium, Volume One came out Feb '99.
Correct -- fixed.

Yup, also fixed.

I'm enjoying these threads Echohawk! I hope you will get to my favorite settings eventually as well:

Mystara
Blackmoor
The Savage Coast (Red Steel)
Thunder Rift

:)

-Havard
 
I'm looking forward to Mystara also, though, in truth, I can imagine that it will be quite the pain in the rear. As I recall, many of the early adventures were questionable as to whether they were designed for Mystara or Greyhawk.
