About the adventure

šŸ† D&D's Most Iconic Foe! šŸ“ Delve Deep into the Mysterious and Fungi Filled Underdark šŸ¹ Epic and Challenging Combat Encounters A ENnie-nominated adventure path. The drow are tough and vicious adversaries, not to mention the other foes that live deep in the Underdark. Drow eyes turn to the surface. This massive adventure will take characters across the surface and into the depths of the world. The Underworld, or Underdark if you prefer, is a dark and dangerous place inspired by Norse mythology and popularized by the late, great E. Gary Gygax, authors Ed Greenwood, R.A. Salvatore, and many others. A twisted and dark place with a myriad of cultures and creatures, the Underworld is an entire world buried below the surface and hidden from the light of day. Deep caves and dark passages wind and honeycomb throughout the earth, distinctly unique races plot against each other and unknown horrors slog about looking for an easy meal. Adventures will meet unique denizens, battle horrors of the Underworld, explore epic locations, and fight to stop the drow. Are you ready to stop the Rise of the Drow?

Gameplay details

Welcome my brothers and sisters to Rise of the Drow. 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. Considerably more effort should be on the personality, flavor and behavior of the character than on the mechanics themselves. I expect players to engross themselves in the role-playing element and contribute interestingly to the story. This campaign is set in the Aventyr campaign setting. https://adventureaweek.com/campaign-setting/
