Has anyone seen any dates of when Wizards plan to share the amends to Curse of Strahd?

I've no intention of buying the new boxed set (the best I've seen it for was £66) but I'm sure someone said that there would be PDF errata? I may buy the 'revamped' version if it lands as a normal hardback though.

I haven’t worked out if they’re making any major changes, or just printing the text they’ve updated the D&D Beyond (& presumably roll20) versions to, which have some small but significant differences in tone and edited/omitted statements in some descriptive sections.

I’m playing in an occasional CoS game so didn’t look in much detail beyond the early description of the Vistani, but Beyond has some differences from my first printing hardcover. They aren’t really anything you’d notice unless you read carefully or compared word for word, but they do make a difference.

Yes, the June 2020 errata is in place.

The biggest one is the removal of references to drunkenness.

Do these edits mean that we win, and I get to realise vicarious victories through a hard fought but ultimately triumphant conclusion?

Oh go on.
Maybe. Maybe not.
Remember that the amends are about embracing diversity and avoiding stereotyping.

Stereotyping... what, like assuming vampires are blood-sucking monsters with no soul and no legitimate existence?

No, but as you die your choices about gender, sexualities and ethnicity will be acknowledged as you rise as a blood craving thrall of your new lord: Strahd.

Now if only real gypsies were treated as well.

Is he just a very naughty boy? That's fine, I can get behind that. Should shorten the campaign a bit. :oops:
