Instead, it presents people, creatures, the dwarves. You, the Dungeon Master, play a vital role. However, she also knows that a rescue might take in the adventure. The adventurers need to are curious and unpredictable, and Faerun is immense help the dwarves fend off an attack by 4 ogres and a and filled with possibility.

C u l t St r u c t u r e However, those goals changed with the rise of a young The cult has a simple hierarchical structure, consisting cultist named Severin. A s a cult fanatics have no rank and follow the orders of reward and further test, she allowed Severin a scrap of their superiors.

Only initiates that prove their worth are knowledge regarding the existence of the five dragon allowed to advance. A W earer of Purple can promote masks. Severin took that bit of information and did what an initiate along the track of dragonclaw first rank , few others could have accomplished, searching for and dragonwing second rank , dragonfang third rank , finding all five masks.

The task took years to complete, and dragonsoul fourth rank. Statistics for those four and it led directly to the crisis that Faerun now faces. Severin kept the red mask for himself. A s other masks Cult operation groups are assembled to match their were found, he presented them to his closest allies in assigned tasks.

They vary in size, from a few low- the Cult of the Dragon, granting each the power of a ranking cultists operating on their own to hundreds of wyrmspeaker. Using the magic of the dragon masks, cultists of various ranks under the control of multiple this Inner Circle of Wyrmspeakers helps Severin Wearers of Purple.

Most folk of the Sword Coast have cultists in the cities, strongholds, and lairs they heard of the cult, but know only that its members revere command. They are the only members of the cult to evil dragons. The cult recruits new members in major wear purple, and most are proud enough to flaunt cities, and word quickly gets around. Moreover, many the color. The Wearers of Purple have an affinity for cultists engage in legitimate business or are assigned to talking to and negotiating with dragons—the gift of ordinary academic research.

Only a relative few serve as wyrmspeaking. Dozens of Wearers of Purple are spread thieves, assassins, and spies. Masks are common have already developed a working relationship with at cult gatherings. Those who do not cultivate and expand this relationship are Cultists avoid this regalia in public, but a character sometimes demoted. A number of priests of Tiamat who knows what to look for can often pick an incognito have recently been made Wearers of Purple, and have dragon cultist out of a crowd.

Cultists sometimes been charged with establishing temples for her open known across Faerun, and are easily recognized by worship in Faerun. Because of their evil on how the Cult of the Dragon should interact with the reputation, Red W izards are arrested or killed on the faithful of Tiamat. For that reason, they often travel in disguise, invisibly, or by magical means. Mortal servants in the effort to summon Tiamat.

In this or a draconic ally. The members of the inner circle quiet civil war, both sides fear that too much attrition each have an affinity for a particular color of chromatic w ill make Thay a target for its long list of enemies. The young, ambitious cult White Wyrmspeaker. If any wyrmspeakers are killed or captured in your campaign—including Rezmir, who the characters might have defeated in H oard o f the Dragon Queen—Severin appoints new followers to his inner council.

A common thought among the dracolich loyalists is that Severin is being played by the fiendish Tiamat. U s in g t h e C u lt o f t h e D r a g o n Cultists are suitable foes for the adventurers in most situations. They keep a low profile in public, so characters are unlikely to see cultists in full regalia on the streets of Waterdeep or Scornubel. As their plots near fruition, however, the cultists grow bolder and might engage the adventurers openly. A grim, dismal region spread across a towering plateau, Thay is defended by an army of undead w arriors and ruled by the lich Szass Tam and the zulkirs he appoints to rule over the eight schools of magic.

The Red W izards of Thay are leader sought powerful magic to locate the scattered Avernus is a boulder-strewn desolation where fiery dragon masks and to perform the ritual that would comets streak across the sky and devil aristocrats rule summon Tiamat from the Nine Hells.

Rath Modar from dismal iron fortresses.

The Engineered Plot of Rath Modar

Out of mutual need, their alliance was born. A ll the rivers of Avernus feed into the Styx, belief that once Tiamat returns, she w ill see that the each one flowing red with blood beneath a roiling Red W izards are more useful allies than the devoted but cloud of flies. Rath M odar hopes that Tiamat w ill show her gratitude for the pivotal role he and his Asmodeus recently reinstated the fallen angel Zariel fellow Red W izards played in her return, granting them as the Archduchess of Avernus, reversing an earlier an army of dragons with which to assault Thay.

After decision that allowed a pit fiend named Bel to take the unseating Szass Tam, Rath M odar plans to take his throne. W h ile in exile from her seat of power, Zariel place at the head of all Red Wizards.

Whether Tiamat was at the mercy of Tiam at—a fate that rankles her still. Hells, Zariel cannot k ill the dragon goddess, and she sees the summoning of Tiamat to the world as a way to Not all members of the Cult of the Dragon are happy be rid of her. He has who seek to free Tiamat, and her power has made it warned Severin about the potential danger, to no avail. However, just U s in g t h e R e d W iz a r d s as Zariel wants Tiamat out, other devils would be happy Red W izards can be encountered anywhere on the to see the Dragon Queen stay in Avernus.

Foremost Sword Coast use mage stats if necessary , whether among them is the deposed pit fiend Bel and the devils operating alongside cultists or on their own. They still loyal to him. In a Ordinarily, the Cult of the Dragon has nothing to do public area where their appearance could put them with devils. However, releasing Tiamat into the world at risk, Red W izards favor deep hoods and scarves to is a massive undertaking, and Severin has called on hide their faces.

Their undead wight bodyguards are every resource he can. Though many of his allies among usually nearby—and often invisible.

The adventurers might thus find themselves attentive players wonder at the connection between making uneasy alliances with characters they would devils and dragons. Devils in the adventure should always be one step H osts of t h e N ine H ells ahead of the adventurers.

This means page-flipping during play and a lot of extra prep-work. This is going to be a considerable investment of time. I'm not clear on if this adventure will be used for the in-store Adventurer's League Encounters program.

If so, I'd imagine that they'd re-format it for the free pdf release..? None of these council meetings have any flavor text. This scenario kind of screams out for it, especially the first meeting. I think this is the first casualty of the adventure's page count. Cramming 7 episodes into about 85 pages did not do this adventure any favors. Basically our heroes are "deputized" and given a writ that makes them official investigators. Each council session is a launching point for different quests.

This chapter is basically an outline of the whole adventure. It's kind of like how in 4e there were two booklets. One had the adventure story, and the other had all of the encounters. As the heroes progress through the quests, we DMs are meant to track how they are doing on a "Council Scorecard" in Appendix C. Making a faction happy means you get access to certain resources. It actually includes events that happen in Hoard of the Dragon Queen, so the faster you get this, the better.

You can start using it right away. The Dragon Eggs! It is about the dragon eggs from episode 3 of Hoard of the Dragon Queen. Different factions would want to do different things with the eggs, including ransoming them back to the dragons.

I am going to post the whole paragraph here.

My group has a baby black dragon from the hatchery. Dark named him "Sparky".

This should be interesting. Episode 2: The Sea of Moving Ice The adventurers travel to the sea to try to find a tiefling who knows stuff about the Draakhorn. There's a cool section where the heroes sail on a ship called Frostskimmer and have some boat encounters.

Then they find a village and a dungeon. In the dungeon is the tiefling, who is a sort-of prisoner of a white dragon. The dungeon has a lot of kobolds. Come on now, we are 8th level here. There's also some skrags, which I love. The dungeon is quite large.

The heroes will come into conflict with a white dragon that casts spells! The dragon's hoard is crap-tastic. For the love of I assume it is due to space issues. Episode 3 is about how a Zhent agent has stolen the white dragon mask from the cult. The PCs and the cultists race through a dungeon to get it. Along the way, our heroes come upon a "treasure vault". Are they finally going to get some kewl loot? No they are not.

Who wants a ring of poison resistance and a couple of scrolls? Why are they skimping? Magic items are cool. There's yuan-ti in this dungeon, too. They have beaten up the cult leader who owned the white dragon mask what a wuss. Basically, the heroes can gain custody of this dude. The white dragon mask is long gone. The cult already has it back.

Ahh the old bait and switch. Not a fan! The green dragon's hoard Episode 4 details a trip to look for one of the cult leaders. He has a green dragon attacking elf settlements in the Misty Forest. There's a neat little section where the heroes investigate the remains of a village.

They end up in a dungeon where the dragon lives. There's an ettin in there! One of my favorite monsters.

Adventure Details

Our heroes kill the dragon and loot it's hoard. Guess what? That's right! This chapter has a series of encounters that should be placed throughout the adventure. The prep time on this thing is unreal. They've actually taken it a step further from Hoard of the Dragon Queen. In Hoard, things were pretty much linear. This book has us flipping all over the place. It's almost a toolkit. A Pathfinder path would do us DMs the favor of placing the assassination attempts throughout the book in logical chronological spots.

I mean, we're buying the adventure so we don't need to do this kind of thing, right? There's three encounters which contain a number of assassins and suggestions as to how the fight might go down. We don't even get a full encounter! Just stuff like "maybe they attack in an inn" or "maybe on the road? Episode 6: Metallic Dragons, Arise! Our heroes fly on the back of a silver dragon for two days to attend a meeting of metallic dragons. The adventurers must convince the dragons to help.

We get details on each dragon representative and some things they might want, which includes wealth, land and the creation of a temple to Bahamut. I like this chapter but it's way too short.

How can you not have an encounter on the back of the silver dragon?In the event of an encounter, a squad of 3d6 rectangular chamber.

The characters are key the adventurers are outside, they might see a dragon players in the drama, but everyone in Faerun has a winging overhead in the distance. The fiend kisses a creature charmed by it or a petrified. On These ingredients vanish when the potion is opened.

Their diverse character, motivations, need strong leaders to protect them—and to do what and obligations ensure that they are not in agreement must be done even when it is distasteful. If the spell Duration:
