# Thread: Strahd card locations, map and data

1. ## Strahd card locations, map and data

There's been some discussion about Strahd card locations recently so I thought I'd finally post the data we've collected and some of our observations. I originally started collecting this data in hopes of finding a correlation between the fortune card order and the crypt card locations, but unfortunately we haven't noticed a correlation. (edit: Steelstar confirmed below that there is no correlation between fortune and crypt card locations) We did however discover some other interesting observations about the finite possibilities of card locations, mentioned below the map that shows the only locations that each card will ever exist in.

I'm posting this data to the public in hopes that someone smarter than me might be able to look at the data and use it for new discoveries. 3 data points in bold red are data that I suspect to be recorded or reported inaccurately, but I'm including here for posterity.

In the data below, the first number indicates the column (1 through 8 from left to right) the card was in and the second number is the position in the column (1 through 5 from top to bottom)

M = Marionette
H = Horseman
B = Broken One
D = Darklord
I = Innocent

There are 3 data points in bold red that I believe were reported or recorded inaccurately.
• I suspect run 9 Innocent was actually at 3-1 or 5-1
• I suspect run 10 Darklord was actually at 6-1 or 6-3 or 7-2
• I suspect run 23 Innocent was actually at 3-1

Observations:
• Each card has 6 exclusive locations that no other card can ever appear in
• Marionette will only appear in 2-2, 3-2, 3-4, 5-2, 6-2, 6-4
• Horseman will only appear in 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 2-1, 4-2, 8-4
• Broken One will only appear in 2-4, 2-5, 4-1, 7-1, 7-3, 7-5
• Dark Lord will only appear in 2-3, 3-3, 5-3, 6-1, 6-3, 7-2
• Innocent will only appear in 1-4, 3-1, 4-3, 5-1, 8-1, 8-3

About 75% of the data was collected from our guild raids. The remainder was collected and reported to me by friends from other guilds.

We also suspected that fortune card order might dictate strahd/bride/shadow abilities however Steelstar recently stated here that:

• "There's a few other small things governed by card order, but nothing affecting buffs or statistics on monsters."
• "A few traps on the stairs have different configurations depending on the card order."

2. Nice!

I'll confirm that there is no correlation between card order and crypt card location, it is purely random.

Speaking of cards, one of them spawns facing 180 degrees the wrong direction and is virtually invisible unless you walk to the very back of the crypt it is in so you can see it's "face". Can you fix that please?

Unfortunately, I don't remember exactly which card it is so hopefully other players can chime in with that info.

I also don't know if it spawns that way every time or just occasionally. I suppose it's possible that it is a combination of a specific crypt + specific card that makes it happen.

That's innocent iirc

Thank you for confirming this
