Alterations to Magic

The land of Barovia resides in its own demiplane, isolated from all other planes, including the Material Plane. No spell—not even wish—allows one to escape from Strahd’s domain. Most effects causing magical travel to or communication with other planes simply fail (summoning spells work normally). Spellcasters who receive their spells from otherworldly patrons continue to do so as normal.
