Ravenloft: Generations of suffering
The Demiplane Ravenloft is not of any world. It exists as an island unto itself. It is a solid, physical demention within the Etherial Plane, and follows it’s own set of Laws.
Ravenloft is not stable. Over time, it’s lands can expand, condense, coalesce, or disappear. It is usually smaller than realms in the Prime Material Plane, such as Krynn, Eberron, or Faerun, but unlike them, Ravenloft has no fixed size. In fact, it seems to move as well as take shape. It floats across the Etherial plane, extending it’s misty fingers into other worlds, into other planes, to absorb characters as well as lands.
For those who visit this realm, time passes with agonizing slowness, especially after sunset. Some who have escaped, after having watched the moon drag across Ravenloft’s heavens for dozens of months, claim that each year spent in Ravenloft is worth two in any other world. They are wearied by their experience, but gain no benefits.
