Fires of Heresy - Theros D&D 5e One-Shot

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

This game is set in Theros, land of mythic legends and gods. As such, this game will utilize piety and other mechanics related to the deities. Roleplay is highly encouraged and feats of bravery are common. Your mythic adventure in Theros begins in a cast-off temple under the mountain where the Sisters of the Poisoned Promise have spent their time shaping their powers. Their worldly views have become dark and they obsess over thoughts of bringing disease and affliction to the people of Theros, but they were bound by Pharika to remain here forever. What will you find as you journey down into their realm? Glory to set you on a path towards a mythic destiny, or perhaps death for daring to cross the gods?
