comment How do I make a Barbarian NPC resistant to assassination?
@KRyan Sure, some of my examples are obviously over the top and rather mad. :) Fortunately, they're simply examples, not actual recommendations - which doesn't mean they couldn't work in certain settings, btw. (A Pratchettian one, for example? Of course, I don't claim to be as funny as TP, not at all.) Had we known more about OP's world, I could've given more serious ones, but I guess they're acceptable as pointers and illustrations for the serious part of my A. :)

Have you (and your DM) considered using the official vampire template class?

+1 great answer, Erik. I've written an addendum to it in a separate answer (wanted to put it in a simple comment here, but it proved too long for that.)

comment How does crossing the borders of Ravenloft's domains work?
To further support my claim and refute your "While the Mists sometimes appear to deposit beings (...) they don't affect travel between Core domains" sentence: p10, Ravenloft, RoT (BB): "These mystical vapors (...) can rise from the soil anywhere in the demiplane (...) as a result, a character may be transported from place to place within the demiplane--from fog bank to fog bank--and be powerless to stop it."

comment How does crossing the borders of Ravenloft's domains work?
1. There was no edition specified in the Q. 2. White Wolf / Arthaus / Sword & Sorcery were completely official licensees of the IP, and for 3.0 and 3.5 there were no other official sources. Their publications were, again, official. Sure, you may dislike them and disregard their content, but it's a question of personal taste. Your claim of universal "factual inaccuracy" doesn't hold ground in the bigger picture. (Also, at least cite some conflicting, also official quotation.) 3. The Q was (when I wrote my A) originally tagged with "Pathfinder", to which 3.5 stands closest.

comment How does crossing the borders of Ravenloft's domains work?
-1 because 1. You've left out the Clusters, 2. You're wrong about "Only two things beyond an outside force affect travel between Core domains - the Darklord sealing the borders, and geography." The Mists may override the Darklord's will (to torture them by letting people escape, for example), and may even surround Core etc domains (let alone arise within anywhere in any domain) and take travelers anywhere they please. P60, Ravenloft: Realm of Terror (Black Box): "At times the Mists surround an individual domain" etc. The Mists (== the DM) are above and beyond the Lords.
