* Lord Soth, in the Ravenloft tie-in novel ''Knight of the Black Rose'', is highly displeased to find himself taken from Krynn and dumped in a strange, misty land. He expresses his displeasure violently, to the point where Ravenloft starts to resemble Tokyo with Lord Soth playing the title role in a ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' movie.
** Not to mention the part where a portal guardian in service to the Dark Powers demands Lord Soth's soul, and he insultingly informs her that if she wants his soul, she'll first have to 1) Go to Krynn 2) Go to Hell (well, the Abyss) and 3) Convince Chemosh, the Krynnish god of the undead, to fork it over ([[FridgeLogic which still wouldn't get her the soul because his soul is bound to the armor he wears]]). The guardian thinks that one over a bit and just lets Soth go on his way.
** Another one - he WAS ALLOWED TO RETURN TO Krynn. Why? [[HeelRealization He acknowledged his crimes and calmly accepted his punishment for them ]]. And in Dragonlance, he eventually managed to one-up this by actualizing the aforementioned and seeking redemption, [[DeathEqualsRedemption especially because]] it finally [[UndeathAlwaysEnds gave him the peace of a true death]]. Though it is CanonDiscontinuity, still...
* Somewhat obscure, but a ChooseYourOwnAdventure gamebook based on the original module entitled "Master of Ravenloft" written in 1986; has a GoldenEnding where the protagonist; a depowered Paladin trapped in Ravenloft; can beat Count Strahd using a ''[[https://open5e.com/equipment/magic-items/decanter-of-endless-water.html Decanter of Endless Water]]''.
** Even better, it makes total sense. The artifact can create a flowing stream of water via a Geyser; and one of the ways to permanently destroy a vampire mentioned in the original module is to submerge them in a flowing stream of water for 3 rounds.
*** Even better better. The Ravenloft guides go into detail about a vampires weaknesses (including flowing water, which kills a vampire in 3 rounds), and the countermeasures that Count Strahd had used to nullify those weaknesses. There is ''nothing'' to indicate that he is protected against flowing water.
