Condensing Ravenloft Part 3: Darkon

  • Ruled by a lich named Azalin.
  • Citizens don’t know he is a lich, but know he is a wizard.
  • Each town governed by a Baron, and has its own judicial system and police force.
  • The Kargat is a secret police force commanded by Azalin, some of which are vampires and lycanthropes.
  • Largest city is Il Aluk, with a population of 25,000.
  • Darkon has many settlements, and is very diverse, with a number of different species and ethnic groups living there.
  • If Azalin wants to seal the border, a wall of undead is summoned, 20 creatures thick, all around the border of Darkon.
  • After 1d3 months spent in Darkon, people forget they ever lived anywhere else.
  • Legend has it that the dead will one day rise and take over Darkon for themselves.
