Sword & Sorcery (an imprint of White Wolf) adapted Ravenloft to the D20 system of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition, 2001-2004. Here is a photo of the whole product line*. Taking photos of black glossy covers is fiendishly difficult; any amount of light turns the covers into mirrors.
I won't be making a page for D20 Ravenloft. You can check our current shop inventory of them over at the sales site.
They are also available in PDF & reprint at DriveThruRPG.
* Not present are the limited edition core rulebook and the deck of D20 Tarokka Cards.
