The insight offered to that word is truly astounding and well worth expanding upon.
I, Strahd: The Memoirs of a Vampire
The Memoirs of a Vampirearmy commander Strahd Von Zarovich takes up residence in Ravenloft and then, consumed by envy and regret for lost youth, succumbs to the temptations of the black arts. That’s not to say I don’t try to be pious. It is this sort of internal conflict that continues to make what could have easily been a shallow retelling of the classic vampire tale so interesting. When I discovered this book existed, I grabbed a copy and it has been sitting on my shelf mmeoirs a while.
I would read this one again. Unfair of me to subject this to such scrutiny? To ask other readers questions about Strahv, Strahdplease sign up. But is Strahd desperate enough to do unspeakable things and live with their consequences? While I thought he would be a heartless and ruthless person, he surprised me by who deep and almost caring he really is. Another bonus to the journal entry, first person perspective is that you aren’t really sure if what happened really happened that way.
Well, add Ravenloft to that as well. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
I Strahd, Memoirs of a Vampire for the Tome of Strahd (Player Character Account) : CurseofStrahd
This book should be called, What if Dracula won and was a Total Badass! A little bit dark, but so true to the old beliefs of vampires that it was refreshing.
I like how Elrod pulled the original Dracul into the story. And when Sergei finally brings home his intended bride Tatyana, Stradh is thrown into such despair that he will do anything to gain her affections.
Like I said, Strahd is just wonderful. All said and done he made an interesting vampire just like Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows.
So Strahd fell in love with her because of…. A Vampire very much in the style of Dracula, with the stdahd, I’ve listened to this audio book more times than I can count. The plot covers Strahd’s background, his choice to become a vampire, and his path from that choice to his weird existence surrounded by zombies in a trashed castle. This stirs up all the feelings of his passing youth and mortality.
Yet I had strayed from the Ravenloft books for years because I imagined them to be something menoirs. Sep 30, Raye rated it it was ok Shelves: Wake of the Ravager Dark Sun Online: Seems like handy background material for anyone getting set to run the game, though.
For those of you that have read Vampire of the Mists, what happens here is really no surprise. Let me summarize my points. Feb 14, David Colpitts rated it liked it. The evil that made the pact clearly delights in Strahd’s suffering, so instead of killing Tatyana you’d think they’d put an ironic twist on her reincarnation and make her a vampire slayer.
The release I have is the picture that I included at the top. Views Read Edit View history.
An added point of enjoyment is the use of the Serbian word for “fear” strah to devise a fitting name for the titular character. But if you haven’t, you see what happens to Strahd and you almost feel sorry for him.
The warlord Stradh ends up falling in love with his younger brother’s chosen woman. As it sets the stage for the true depth of his cursed despair, though, even that is a forgivable literary device.
Mar 28, Allana rated it liked it. A well written and entertaining got This book was a lot better than expected. Paul Boehmer does a great job with the narration. After you do get used to it, it becomes a fast paced and exciting read.
The Memoirs of a Vampire
You may start to think that what Strahd is saying isn’t what really is happening. While it looked like a decently-sized read, my edition had larger than normal font and whimsically cliche pictures, which I felt padded it into pages when it should have been around I had always heard of I, Strahd as being one of the better books in the series, and I checked used bookstores throughout my teens trying to find it with no mfmoirs.
He said we could listen to it without worrying about spoilers in the current campaign, and that it could potentially give us some subtle helpful hints.
The young and idealistic brother to the war-hardened Strahd von Zarovich loves beautiful Tatyana, but so does Strahd. As things stand, I instead found it at a used bookstore how fitting!
