Before the Stroke of Midnight

a mystery adventure for 5E and D&D

It was AMAZING. Not only did we enjoy the book so much but also it was so cool to have a hardcopy at the table.

– Dany

Eerie ghosts, mysterious intrigues, and dark secrets await you at the castle.

Before the Stroke of Midnight is a gothic mystery adventure inspired by Edgar Allan Poe for 9th-level characters and includes scalable encounters to suit any level from 1 to 20.
The book also includes the Black Raven’s Compendium with new monsters, magic items, unique lore, and more.

The Duchess Rose Blackraven of Shieldsborg Castle is dead.
However, her last will is missing, and it is unclear who will inherit from her.

Search the old castle for clues, interview the secretive residents, and investigate the mysterious surrounding areas.

But be careful – more blood will be spilled, and a new murder will occur before midnight.
