Expedition to Castle Ravenloft

A gorgeous cover leads to a lack lustre set of introductions to the campaign. All of them rely on the PCs receiving a fake letter and entering the Barony of Barovia with little idea of the area or the "lord of the manor" who rules over it. This sadly just feels generic and while some of the ideas sound good in principle the implementation really undermines the whole principle of the book. So far there isn't much in the way of character and this feels more like a dungeon with a history.
