About the adventure

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. Come with us and embark on an extraordinary quest in Tomb of Annihilation, a gripping Dungeons & Dragons 5E adventure that will push your limits and test your courage. The world is plagued by a malevolent force known as the death curse, draining life from the living and preventing the resurrection of the dead. To unravel this dark mystery, you must venture into the treacherous jungles of Chult, a land teeming with peril and ancient secrets. Along the way, you'll face undead horrors, powerful liches, and treacherous factions vying for control. Will you conquer the tomb's deadly traps, harness the powers of the trickster gods, and put an end to the death curse? The fate of the world hangs in the balance, and only the bravest heroes can face this ultimate test of survival. 🗺️ Adventure in a setting that requires your wit just to survive the environment 🎭 Professionally edited and expanded content lets you enjoy more of Chult 🎻 Soundtrack and ambient noise via Syrinscape for greater immersion ⚔️ Challenging tactical combat balanced around the party. New creatures. Sandbox exploration 📚 All official game resources and technology to explore the jungles, custom maps and encounters 😊 Beginner-friendly while still challenging the more experienced adventurers Don't forget a backup character.... Tomb of Annihilation is an epic fantasy adventure module designed for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition. Explore the tropical wilderness of Chult, from the rainforests to the mountaintops, from dinosaurs to lichs. Inspired by works like the Indiana Jones franchise, The Mummy, and Kong: Skull Island, defeat death before death claims you! Join us for this epic level 1 - 15 (with new expanded content) adventure that will be played every other Sunday through Fantasy Grounds VTT and Discord.

Gameplay details

Theme: Survival, Exploration, Tomb Raiding Starting Level: 1st Mechanically, this will be standard point-buy with 27 points. I strongly disfavor stat dumps, especially Charisma, without appropriate story justification. I also disfavor gimmicky characters. There are also house rules that are in effect for this campaign that change some of the 5e game mechanics. I expect players to engross themselves in the roleplaying element and contribute interestingly to the story.
