The Mists of Reality : Strahd's Conjunction
The Grand Conjunction of Ravenloft
During the year of 740 (on the Barovian calendar), The Grand Conjunction was a devastating event. The Vistani seer Hyskosa foresaw this in a hexad of prophecies, an event that would split the Demiplane of Dread apart. Over the course of five years, the verses were fulfilled until, the Darklord himself, Count Strahd von Zarovich forced the Conjunction to occur early in an attempt to leave the Mists of Sorrow before its destruction. For a brief time the darklords were freed from their curses and prisons in the Mists before the Conjunction collapsed. The conjunction was meant to be the end of Ravenloft.
As a result of Strahd’s interference, the lords of Ravenloft have broken through the Mists and escaped into the Prime Material Plane, known as Faerun. Bit by bit, monsters of the demiplane of dread are following behind.
