About the adventure

With twists and turns in the story, you’ll feel like you were in a maze, but that’s just the street of Waterdeep, the fabulous city that never sleeps. Volo, yes the renown Volothamp Geddarm asks you to find his friend and you get embroiled in what becomes a race to retrieve a Horde of 500,000 Dragons. Will the criminal factions, The Lords Alliance or yourselves get there first. And more importantly to you… what do you want to spend all that gold on? This is a short campaign, that is set completely within the walls of Waterdeep. Waterdavians call a gold piece a Dragon; hence the adventures name. There is a sizeable number of them hidden somewhere in the city and I’ve yet to meet a party that isn’t interested in gold pieces, so its a sure bet you’ll try and find out where the gold is. Hopefully you’ll not alert the city watch or any of the criminal organisations in the city. PS if you’re really really lucky, you may come face to face with Xanathar, the Beholder from the book Xanathar's Guide to Everything… ok that might not be lucky but you know what I mean.

How will character creation work

💬 We’ll have a chat so we can delve into your character's story and discuss any background details needed for your adventure. 📖 The Campaign on D&D Beyond is there for you to craft your character in anticipation of our Session 0. 🎲 In Foundry you’ll use a macro (4d6 drop lowest) for those crucial Ability scores that shape your character. 📜 Your character's backstory can as short or detailed as you desire. I personally love deep stories as that allows me to bring those aspects to the table to enhance your character.
