About the adventure

In the city of Waterdeep rests a tavern called the Yawning Portal, named after the gaping pit in its common room. At the bottom of this crumbling shaft is a labyrinthine dungeon shunned by all but the most daring adventurers. Known as Undermountain, this dungeon is the domain of the mad wizard Halaster Blackcloak. Long has the Mad Mag dwelt in these forlorn depths, seeding his lair with monsters, traps, mysteries. To what end? That question is a constant source of speculation and concern. This adventure starts at 5th level and takes characters all the way to 20th level should they explore the entirety of Halaster’s home.
