    Running a Ravenloft Scenario

    Okay, so I'm crafting a D&D campaign/module for Neverwinter Nights 2 (whenever I learn how to program that kind of stuff XD) I want to include at least one "gothic horror" type scenario that captures the feel of Ravenloft and I need some advice regarding this kind of stuff (inspiring fear is not exactly my strongest suite). Advice welcome, especially from those who have experience with Ravenloft, Call of the Cthulhu, or similar settings.

    Hi NiteRabbit,

    I don't think you'll inspire fear in your players with a setup like NWN - it's just too far removed from an immersive experience, which is necessary for horror.

    But you can certainly go for the feel of horror, and specifically gothic horror. Start with the wikipedia article on gothic horror and make a list of motifs, imagery, items and stock characters that will support your plot. Watch a bunch of Hammer Horror or Spaghetti Horror movies (if you can find them).

    Happy to act as a sounding-board further if you need one.
