4 Classic TSR Modules Under The Influence of The Ravenloft Setting For Old School Adventure

'The coiling mists of Ravenloft close their tendrils of fog & mist on other classic Dungeons  & Dragons  old school adventures. Adventures where the shadows grow longer & the aspects of monsters grow much more sinister as well as deadly. "

The idea here is to take five classic modules of  Dungeons & Dragons then marry these classics to the Ravenloft setting. How does the tone of these classic modules change & metamorphose into something totally unexpected ?

S3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks suddenly takes on a darkly ironic kick to it as the ruined star ship not only is infected with hordes of undead zombies but the alien Flayer species is aboard as well. Very vicious monsters are being released onto the countryside at the same time which could mean the end of the world unless the PC's are willing to check out the dangerous remains of this cursed stead from the sky.
Once the party realizes the danger the ship represents then they must stop the undead hordes aboard from over running the countryside!

"Lost in the desert! The only hope for survival lies in a ruined city rising out of the sands. Food, water, and wealth await heroic adventures inside and ancient pyramid ruled by a strange race of masked beings. "

Every day the sands grow as the desert seeks to engulf  everything like a living hand of dry corruption! The goal is to to find out who or what is behind the sinister masked beings that are kidnapping locals & strange rumors of the demon god who is been accepting sacrifices once again. Does the lower levels of the lost city  under influence of Ravenloft contain far more demon gods & worse?

The cult of the demon god of B4 The Lost City under Ravenloft has already spread out into the county side like a disease. Th cancer is growing & only the adventurers can stop it! The dangers here grow as vampires & undead locked away for centuries flood out of these hidden levels.

"Not long ago, the valley was green and animals ran free through golden fields of grain. The Princess Argenta ruled over this peaceful land and the people were secure and happy. Then one day, a warrior riding a white dragon appeared in the skies over the castle, and almost overnight the tiny kingdom fell into ruin. Now only ruins and rumors remain, and what legends there are tell of a fabulous treasure still buried somewhere within the Palace of the Silver Princess."

The lunacy of B3 The Palace of the Silver Princess oozes into the counrty side as reality is twisted into knots by the mists of Ravenloft. Reality melts as the events of B3 spread like a cancer from the magicks of the events of the adventure. Men, women, animals are twisted into distorted versions of themselves as the curse of the valley spreads!

Gray Mountain lies deep in the lush elven forest. The temple there was a haven of meditation and learning until taken over by an evil cleric known as the Rahib.

Far under the mountain, he paces before the temple's great altar. A brown-robed servant rushes in and falls to his knees, trembling at the sight of the Rahib's black panther. "Rahib, adventurers came to the village as the sun rose - the strangers now protect Rahasia."

A scowl crosses the Rahib's face. "I must have Rahasia! Attack again tonight." As the servant scurries away, a deep growl rises from the giant cat.

Gripping the panther's leash, the Rahib paces again, speaking out loud. "We must dispose of these strangers quickly; the secret beneath the temple will not wait much longer."" The PC's stumble upon an evil Elven cult of shape shifters whose influence deeply connects to the powers of Ravenloft itself. Murder,intrigue, horror, & the powers of Ravenloft tear at the PC's in this adventure. Modifying B7 means that the magcicks of the adventure must be stopped! 

Which of Ravenloft's Dark lords is behind
the Rahib & whose taking advantage of the twisting of the magics of the temple in the Grey Mountains? Killing anyone that the party meets in this adventure would be very unwise.
The power s behinds the mists of Ravenloft are going to take full advantage of these adventure locations by spreading & maintaining the evils of them. In point of fact they'll be turning the horror & depravity aspects of these modules up to eleven. Just in time for Halloween.
