About the adventure

Dive into Hell to help your orc friends find peace in the Afterlife. "A figure from legend asks the gathered heroes to help set the cosmos aright. Will the heroes overcome the multiversal threat? Will they overcome their own biases? A four-/six-hour adventure for Tier 3 characters. Optimized for APL 13." So why should you play this adventure? Five reasons... 1) It has modrons! 2) This Forgotten Realms adventure puts the conflicts of the orcish people into their actual perspective. 3) Your heroes can meet and interact with one of the most famous NPC's in the Forgotten Realms novels written by RA Salvatore. 4) Your parties can face off with and even defeat a dark god. 5) MODRONS!!!?!!1! This romp is the heavy metal punk version of D&D 5e. "King Obould's Fist" features wilderness and tech-based exploration sequences, discovering an inhuman process hurting people, and industrial sabotage to make this travesty stop. It includes a modron-themed chase sequence, as well as some of the most challenging combat in existing 5e content. The open world style with special investigation mechanics makes for a tale you can fit into a 4 hour slot, or extend to 6 hours or more. The possiblities for roleplaying and social play build a powerful narrative for high level characters, and the adventure can serve as a jump-off point for stories of your own creation. "King Obould's Fist" is heavily inspired by classics in the punk rock scene (thank you, Johnny Rotten). Custom art for this adventure was commissioned, including the beautiful wrap-around cover art. As one of the final CCC adventures authorized by Wizards of the Coast and Adventurers League, it will sit as one of the most sandboxy adventures for your Adventurers League legal game. "King Obould's Fist" also fits well for homegames set in the Forgotten Realms, and it works great in other settings too. Players can decide to play this one-shot adventure in a traditional style, or in an Adventurers League Legal style. All players will receive a complimentary copy of the adventure upon its completion. The pricing listed is for a full 7-8 hour version of the game. If you want to experience a shorter 4-hour version, the price will be reduced appropriately.
