It’s time for your adventuring party to leave the Sword Coast in Tomb of Annihilation, the next Dungeons and Dragons storyline from Wizards of the Coast.
The new storyline was announced this past weekend during the Stream of Annihilation live stream. Tomb of Annihilation is expected to arrive in September.
The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.
When they finally succumb, they can’t be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.
The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.
Adventure design by Christopher Perkins, Will Doyle, and Steve Winter, with additional design by Adam Lee. Story consulting by the award-winning creator of Adventure Time, Pendleton Ward.
The adventure is for levels 1 – 11, which brings up an interesting question. Many of the modules from Wizard of the Coast are for low level adventurers. Is this something you like, or do you want modules for levels near the 5e cap?
Tomb of Annihilation arrives on September 19, 2017, and has a $49.95 cover price.
