The Book of Sacrifices was the ninth Ravenloft Netbook published by the Kargatane, a group of Ravenloft fans who went on to run the official fan site for many years. The Book of Sacrifices is a collection of articles about the people, places and monsters of the Ravenloft and Masque of the Red Death settings. It also contains some new rules, and articles on running games in those two settings.
From the preface of the book:
Requiescat in Pace
Normally, we offer an introductory passage on this page, one to get you in the mood for what is to come. However, with recent events, it seems inappropriate. Rather, the Kargatane would like to take time to honor the sacrifices of all those who place themselves in harm's way so that others may live, and live free.
Additionally, our own family has suffered a loss. Marie Klein-Laplante, whom many of you knew as Evee on our message boards, discovered earlier this year that she was suffering from cancer. During the final preparation of this netbook, we learned that she had lost this battle. We salute the courage that kept her fighting until the end. Our community was richer for her presence, and Marie will be sorely missed.
The Kargatane dedicate this year's netbook to Marie, and to all who sacrifice themselves on the front lines of the battle against evil.
