The Trade

The Trade published on No Comments on The Trade

To celebrate the release of a new Ravenloft book, we did a mini-arc about that setting’s most infamous villain.

We had fun making this, and it’s based on, perhaps, the most dramatic character death I’ve ever had at a table. I always sub Candor and the gang out for my tables’ characters in these comics, partly because I don’t want to rewrite someone’s image of their character, and partly so that I can edit events without retconning entire campaigns as they happened.

The only real difference here, though, is that the character was a Shifter, not a warlock, and made horrifying kissy faces at me when he revealed that he was not, in fact, Ireena to Strahd. Good times. Friends don’t let friends drink and roll dice.
