About the adventure

A dangerous adventure designed for high level players who wish to test their wits against what is considered the most dangerous dungeon to date and the one that inspired the Tomb of Annihilation campaign book. In the far reaches of the world , under a lost and lonely hill, lies the sinister Tomb Of Horrors. This labyrinthine crypt is filled with terrible traps, strange and ferocious monsters, rich and magical treasures, and somewhere within rests the demilich. The legend of the tomb is an old story with many parts, some of which may be lost or obscured. Be warned that these tales have it that this being , called Acererak, possesses powers that make him nearly undefeatable! All accounts conclude that it is quite unlikely any explorers will ever find the chamber where the demilich lingers, for the passages are and rooms of the fraught with traps, poison gases, and magical protections. Furthermore the demilich has so well hidden his lair that even those who avoid the pitfalls will not be likely to to locate their true goal. Only large and well prepared parties of the bravest and strongest should even consider the attempt, and if such a group does locate the tomb, they must be prepared to fail. Any expedition must have magical protections and weapons, and must be equipped with every sort of device possible to ensure survival. This Harrowing dungeon is an adventures final destination . It is unlikely the Adventurers will ever find the chamber where the dimilich lingers , for the passages and rooms of the tomb are fraught with traps, poison gases, and magical protections. Those who succeed will find treasures rivaling dragon hoards and become those spoken of in legend!

How will character creation work

As this is a very tough dungeon and the guide suggests high level characters I suggest everyone has a character level between 13 and 15 , please create your characters before the sessions, if you have characters from previous games you are more then welcome to bring them in I would just need to see the sheets, you may add 3000 starting gold and I will provide a magic item for everyone. Unearthed Arcana is allowed
