About the adventure

"The drums of war beat through the Wyrmbones. Though the unsuspecting region of Elsir Vale yet rests calm, smothered in its midsummer heat. In the wake of dry weather and dust, a lone caravan filled with supplies bears a handful of destinies to a new beginning. Only the Wheels of Prophecy know if they will be forged by adversity, or crushed by the Red Hand of Doom!" One of the greatest Adventures of 3rd Edition D&D comes converted, refined and playtested to 5th Edition. This adventure set in the Forgotten Realms will take a party of 4-5 characters from 1st to 10th level. The campaign will begin with an introductory adventure up to 5th level to introduce the region and the powers at play and then the events of the Red Hand of Doom will begin. The Red Hand of Doom adventure is contained within the sandbox region of Elsir Vale where the days of long lasting peace soon come to an end. The latter half of the adventure will be a race against the march of the Army of the Red Hand, where you must aid in uniting the various powers of the region to aid in defeating it. Success is not guaranteed, your choices will affect the strength of your allies and enemies, as well as your own. Expect a classic fantasy story about war between the forces of good and evil, heavily inspired by the likes of the Lord of the Rings and Dragon Age: Origins.
