About the adventure

"In an audacious bid for power, the Cult of the Dragon, along with it's dragon allies and the Red Wizards of Thay, seek to free Tiamat from her prison in the Nine Hells to bring her to the Forgotten Realms. The Cult's forces are sweeping from town to town, laying waste to all who oppose them and gathering a hoard of riches for their dread queen. The threat is so dire, factions as disparate as the Harpers and the Zhentarim are banding together to battle the cult. Never before has the need for heroes been as desperate." This campaign will take players through the Tyranny of Dragons adventures, Hoard of the Dragon Queen and The Rise of Tiamat and from levels 1 through 15. We will be using Above VTT for tabletop combat and maps.
