Savage Ravenloft: The Beginning

My present gaming obsession is Savage Worlds, which is a tremendous roleplaying game released by Pinnacle Entertainment.  Now, I am also a huge fan of the Ravenloft campaign setting by TSR/Wizards of the Coast for Dungeons and Dragons.  For those who don't know, Ravenloft is a Gothic Horror fantasy setting...or, more disparagingly, D&D meets Dracula, Frankenstein and The Wolf-Man.

Thing is, I don't much like any incarnation of D&D anymore, so I am bending Savage Worlds and Ravenloft into a perfect mish-mash of what I want the setting to do.  For this I am drawing from my Ravenloft collection, spanning from AD&D second edition through D&D 3.5, and a variety of Savage Worlds products: Savage Worlds Explorer's Edition, The Fantasy Companion, Shaintar, Rippers, Deadlands Reloaded and the Horror GM's Toolkit.  As this progresses, I will post my conversions piecemeal.  I welcome comments, preferably constructive, and feel free to use anything I post in your own games.

Keep an eye out here, and enjoy!
