Quick Note - Dreams of the Red Wizards released

The next D&D Next adventure, Dreams of the Red Wizards, has been released. It is the 18th season of the Dungeons & Dragons Encounter line and the second to be mass-market released.

I plan on picking this up on pay day but am a little worried about the inclusion of the "Event Coordinator" from Dracolich. Probably a baseless worry, but anything that starts to reek of tournament adventures puts me off.

From drivethru:

 Szass Tam, the lich lord of Thay, and his Red Wizards threaten to dominate all of the Sword Coast. The Bloodgate, an elemental node of power, must be destroyed in order to stop him. This adventure is part two of the Dreams of the Red Wizards Sundering storyline, directly tied to Scourge of the Sword Coast, and loosely connected to the events in Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle.Dead in Thay is a tribute to Tomb of HorrorsThe Ruins of Undermountain, and other killer dungeons. The monsters, traps, and hazards in the adventure create a deadly challenge.

It will be interesting to see how WotC and the Next system handles merciless dungeon crawls, but if "Mines of Madness" was more than a joke then it should handle it well.

Dreams of the Red Wizards is on pretty much every OBS site for $17.99.

  1. the event coordinator is the store owner or the person in charge of encounters at the store. It is designed for multiple tables to play in the same dungeon. That is why there is coordination.
