[RPG] Using the “Haunted One” background outside of the Curse of Strahd


It is my first time creating a character. Can the "Haunted One" background from Curse of Strahd be used outside of the Curse of Strahd storyline?

Best Answer


This background was published in the Curse of Strahd adventure, but was also released in a free pdf for use in other campaigns.

However, as with all character decisions, your DM has the final say on this, so ask them to be sure.
