Important LFR Campaign Announcement

Please see this post on the LFR Community blog for an important announcement regarding the future of Living Forgotten Realms.


Winter Fantasy 2014 Adventures

We have released all the Winter Fantasy adventures except PREQ6-1 and ADCP6-1 (which are coming soon)! Please see the WF 2014 Downloads for details.

Epic Campaign reminder: If you plan to play EPIC6-1, we strongly recommend that you first play as many of the previous Epic Campaign adventures as you can, but especially EPIC5-3.


Final Batch of LFR Content - Coming June 2014

We have a few remaining adventures to release, all of which will be available by the start of Origins 2014. These include ADCP6-1 and PREQ6-1 (the Winter Fantasy 2014 BI and its prequel), the two Intro adventures, AGLA2-4, and the two remaining Giants series adaptables. Once everything is released we will do a final reorganization of this website to make everything easy to find. The site will remain available as an archive of the LFR campaign.

As part of this final content release for Living Forgotten Realms, all of the ADCP adventures that were previously only available to public events have been added to the website and are available for direct download. The online public-play request form is no longer being used. Feel free to download them and play them at your convention, game day, or at home, or just read them to see what happened. (For easy access to all the ADCP files, visit the archived adventures page.)

Although we still believe that these large-scale adventures are best experienced at public events, the Global Admins hereby grant permission for players to ignore the restriction on the title page of these adventures saying that they are limited to public play only. Enjoy!


Campaign Rulings not in the LFRCG

Occasionally, the campaign staff needs to issue rulings that are either too narrow to warrant inclusion in the LFR Campaign Guide or that override the text of the current version. These rulings are documented here and are official for the campaign.


Campaign Documents

The Living Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide (LFRCG) includes all the information you need in order to get started playing LFR (other than the core rules of Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition). Refer to this document for meta-game rules about creating and advancing characters, playing and DMing adventures, forming an adventuring company, and much more.

LFR Campaign Guide Version 2.5 Effective 04 August 2011

Every LFR character is required to have an Adventure Log; the file provided here is a sample. Players are free to create their own versions so long as the key information is tracked.

LFR Sample Adventure Log    

Meta-organizations are like Adventuring Companies, but were created to have a specific identity and place in the campaign world. Joining a meta-org usually happens as a result of playing specific adventures in which that organization's goals play a prominent role. A PC can be a member of both an Adventuring Company and a meta-organization. These rules are fully legal in LFR even though they are marked as having DRAFT status.

Meta-Organizations Rules Version 1.0 Effective 01 June 2011

You can ask questions and provide feedback on these documents in the LFR Community General Forum.


Winter Fantasy 2014 Adventures

These adventures premiered at Winter Fantasy 2014. This information is also posted on the LFR Community blog.

Note that most of the adventure content, including the Battle Interactive, is only for the Paragon tier (CORE6-1 is a one-round Heroic tier adventure, and EPIC6-1 is a three-round 30th-level adventure; everything else is Paragon only). We do not expect this to be a serious deterrent for players. You can download 11th-level pre-generated characters from this website, and the campaign rules allow players to create new 11th-level characters. Also, if you play CORE6-1 with an existing Heroic tier character, you have the option to promote that character directly to Paragon tier at the conclusion of the adventure, as explained on the relevant Story Awards. Any character that has reached at least level 21 can play EPIC6-1, because the Epic Campaign rules permit any legal Epic tier character to play the adventures out of order, raising or lowering the character's level temporarily as needed.

ADCP6-1 The End and the Beginning Paragon Tier
War rages between Cormyr and Netheril. While the battle for Suzail unfolds on the surface of Faerûn, a far more important struggle occurs in the realm of the unseen. The Netherese seek to create a new Shadow Weave and remake everything in Shar's image. The Order of Blue Fire wishes to ensure that the Spellplague's effects can never be undone. This is a fight not to determine the fate of the world, but to decide the very nature of reality. These are the last moments of this age, as the twin worlds of Abeir and Toril are sundered once more.
This is a two-round continuous-play Living Forgotten Realms Battle Interactive set throughout Faerûn and the planes for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the finale of the Desolation series. Its events are directly influenced by the outcomes of CORE6-1, MYTH6-1 through 6-3, SPEC6-1, PREQ6-1, and EPIC6-1. Please note that as with all Battle Interactives, this adventure is combat-intensive.
 
PREQ6-1 A Tale of Two Cities Paragon Tier
Netheril seeks to win the war by the most expedient means possible -- the conquest or destruction of Suzail. Most defenses are useless against the flying city of Shade Enclave, which even now inexorably approaches the heart of Cormyr. Should the Netherese manage to control the skies, they will have a nearly insurmountable advantage in the battle to come. There is someone who could even the odds, but only with your help, and only at a terrible cost. It is certain that not all those who volunteer for this special mission will return. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in the skies above Cormyr for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is a prequel to the Battle Interactive and its results will have a powerful impact on the story of the BI for all tables that run at Winter Fantasy.
 
CORE6-1 Behind Obould's Lines by Chris Sniezak and Shawn Merwin Heroic Tier
You had already entered Many-Arrows to steal a relic from a small temple when you received the desperate message: slow down an orc horde before it joines forces with Netheril to invade Cormyr. But how are a handful of adventurers supposed to stop the throngs of Obould's orcs? It won't be easy, but you could become legends... A one-round Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in the Kingdom of Many-Arrows for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This is the Heroic tier finale of the Desolation series, and takes place just before the events of ADCP6-1. Important Note: After completing this adventure, you have the option to promote your existing Heroic tier character directly to the Paragon tier (but you are not required to do so).
 
EPIC6-1 Confrontation in Shadow by Dan Anderson and Keith Richmond Level 30 ONLY
Shar weaves her final scheme to devour the world in shadow, safe within her Towers of Midnight. Legendary heroes must stop the goddess, securing their places in the pantheon, history, and myth -- or be forgotten in the total annihilation that will follow should they fail. A three-round continuous-play Living Forgotten Realms adventure for 30th-level characters. This is the finale of the Epic Campaign. We recommend that you allow 12-15 hours of playing time to complete this adventure.
 
MYTH6-1 Preemptive Strike by Steven Martin Paragon Tier
The dark fey have made an unlikely pact with the Order of Blue Fire. These combined forces now threaten Myth Drannor, putting the alliance with Cormyr at risk on the eve of all-out war with Netheril. Can you infiltrate their stronghold and disrupt their plans? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Myth Drannor for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). Note that MYTH6-1, 6-2, and 6-3 can be played in any order. Collectively, these three adventures make up both the Fey and Flames Major Quest and Chapter Four of the Desolation series.
 
MYTH6-2 Ambassador, General, Herald, Spy by Doug Hopkins and Mickey Tan Paragon Tier
There is a traitor within the innermost circle of power in Myth Drannor. The Coronal is unsure whom she can trust, so outside help is needed. Can you unravel the mystery before Myth Drannor is severely crippled? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Myth Drannor for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). Note that MYTH6-1, 6-2, and 6-3 can be played in any order. Collectively, these three adventures make up both the Fey and Flames Major Quest and Chapter Four of the Desolation series.
 
MYTH6-3 The World Will End in Fire by Dan Anderson and Lori Anderson Paragon Tier
Powerful leaders and ritual casters from the Order of Blue Fire gather in secret to cast a vile ritual. What would happen if the energy of a mythal was corrupted, then unleashed in the form of Spellplague? It would be better for the world not to know the answer to that question. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Myth Drannor for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). Note that MYTH6-1, 6-2, and 6-3 can be played in any order. Collectively, these three adventures make up both the Fey and Flames Major Quest and Chapter Four of the Desolation series.
 
SPEC6-1 Divide and Conquer by Claire Hoffman Paragon Tier
Cormyr and its allies need the help of the good-aligned dragons in the upcoming battle against Netheril. The dragons are willing to join the cause, but only if they are first given assistance in retaking the Well of Dragons. Recent setbacks experienced by the Cult of the Dragon make this the right time to strike. The area is still heavily fortified, so a small, covert operation is needed. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is part of the Desolation series, and takes place just before the events of ADCP6-1.
 

The story of EPIC6-1 makes the most sense if you have played the previous Epic Campaign adventures, especially EPIC5-3 (although this is not required). EPIC5-2 and EPIC5-3 are linked here for your convenience.

EPIC5-2 Dragons Dark by Gary Mattingly, Keith Richmond,
and Krishna Simonse
Level 28 ONLY
Dragons wreak destruction and mayhem in the grip of madness, gathering sacrifices for a dark apocalypse. Death spreads its wings and casts its shadow over Faerûn, harvesting souls from entire cities and nations. Only the greatest of heroes can stop this new Rage of Dragons. A three-round Living Forgotten Realms Epic Campaign adventure for 28th-level characters. We recommend you allow 12-15 hours of play time to complete this adventure. EPIC5-2 is a direct sequel to EPIC5-1 Plaguewrought Prism. Continuity note: The events of EPIC5-1 and EPIC5-2 take place (in game) before the events of ADCP5-1 Home's Last Light.
 
EPIC5-3 Shadow Storm by Lori Anderson, John DuBois,
and Keith Richmond
Level 29 ONLY
Puzzles (Color) [25 MB]
Puzzles (B&W) [23 MB]
Thwarted time and again, Shar is finally forced to answer for her attempts to plunge creation into eternal night. But the dark goddess is not so easily defeated, even by Faerûn's greatest heroes. Traps and treachery abound, and every move seems to lead closer to apocalpyse. A three-round Living Forgotten Realms Epic Campaign adventure for 29th-level characters. We recommend you allow 12-15 hours of play time to complete this adventure. EPIC5-3 is a direct sequel to EPIC5-2 Dragons Dark and should be played before EPIC6-1 Confrontation in Shadow if possible.
Note to DMs: In addition to the main adventure file (the primary download link), you will also need to download the puzzles (the two secondary download links). Due to the size of these files we are offering separate downloads for the color version and the black & white version. You only need one or the other; the puzzles are the same. To be clear, you really do have to print the color version in color or else it won't be usable.
 


Origins 2013 Adventures

These adventures premiered at Origins 2013. These adventures are sanctioned for both public and private play.

ADCP5-2 Best Defense by Pieter Sleijpen, Dan Anderson, Lori Anderson,
Krishna Simonse, John du Bois, Renout van Rijn,
Mickey Tan, and Forrest McDonald
Ship Maps by Jose Ortiz
Heroic and Paragon Tier
There has long been a fragile peace between the shadowy forces of Netheril on one side and the Forest Kingdom of Cormyr and its eladrin allies on the other. The Shade Princes, War Wizards, and High Mages have studied each other's strengths and weaknesses for thousands of years. The only thing that has kept the sides from each other's throats is fear of the utter devastation that an all-out war between such magical giants would cause. But something has disturbed this precarious balance. The power of Shade Enclave is growing; not even the greatest of heroes could prevent the fall of Elturel. If the forces of light don't strike back now, it may soon be too late...
This is a two-round continuous-play Living Forgotten Realms Battle Interactive set in Netheril for characters of the Heroic and Paragon tiers (levels 1-20). You should allow 9 hours of play time to run this event (we recommend two 4-hour back-to-back slots with a 1-hour break). This adventure is combat-intensive. Players who do not enjoy combat encounters are less likely to enjoy this adventure. We recommend that Event Organizers try to schedule at least five simultaneous tables of this event, and that at least three of the characters at each table be members of the same Adventuring Company or meta-organization.
 
PREQ5-1 Edge of Justice by Pierre van Rooden
and Dan Anderson
Heroic Tier
With knowledge comes power, and power comes at a price. A former adversary's descent into madness prompts you to set out on a mission of intrigue and subterfuge, for the good of Cormyr. But with war on the horizon, the price for knowledge is high indeed. What will you risk to aid the Crown? A one-round Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Cormyr for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure takes place after the events of CORE2-12 The Sschinldyryn Heresy as well as PREQ3-1 Shrouded Visions and ADAP2-3 That Which Never Sleeps. This adventure is an optional prelude to the Origins 2013 Battle Interactive ADCP5-2 Best Defense. This adventure is roleplaying-intensive.
 
CORE5-7 Broken Light by Pieter Sleijpen Paragon Tier
The Second Battle of Elturel ended in a single terrible instant. The divine relic known as Amaunator's Companion exploded, taking most of Najara's invading forces with it and leveling Elturel. Now that the smoke has cleared, the heirs of Elturgard are organizing an expedition to learn what remains of the city, if anything. They also hope to retrieve some items they were forced to leave behind. They need powerful protectors, for who knows what they might find amidst the ashes of Elturel. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Elturgard for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is a loose sequel to the Elturgard Story Area adventures and takes place after the events of ADCP5-1 Home's Last Light. The adventure includes a retirement option for high-level characters. Although this is a one-round adventure, playtest experience has shown that it can run long. We recommend you allow for up to 6 hours of play time if possible.
 
CORE5-8 The Dantalien Maneuver by Christoper M. Sniezak Paragon Tier
Thay has put into action a plot against Aglarond. The only way to stop the threat is to send a group of adventurers to reinforce the handful of inexperienced soldiers currently stationed at Citadel Dantalien. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Aglarond for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is not a direct sequel to or prequel of any previous LFR adventure. It takes place at the same time as the events of Chapter 3 of the Desolation series and shows some of the consequences of the main plot line that are occurring around the world.
 
CORE5-9 Last Testament by John du Bois with Claire Hoffman Paragon Tier
Lord High Governor Thamalon Uskevren II of Sembia is dead, having been assassinated on his first visit to Urmlaspyr in forty years. But why do both the Netherese and the Harpers want your help investigating his death? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Urmlaspyr for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is not a direct sequel to or prequel of any previous LFR adventure (but its plot is informed by the events of previous adventures set in Urmlaspyr). This adventure takes place at the same time as the events of Chapter 3 of the Desolation series and shows some of the consequences of the main plot line that are occurring around the world.
 
SPEC5-3 What Distant Skies by Chad Brown and Joshua Randall Heroic Tier
The skyships of the Five Companies could help Cormyr combat the growing menace of Netheril. Unfortunately, a large portion of the fleet is currently in drydock. To repair the ships damaged by the treachery of Seric Vargenos, the Five Companies need materials from far-off Halruaa. Only you can gather those materials in time. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Halruaa for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure happens at roughly the same time (in-game) as SPEC5-4, and after the events of ADCP5-1. The events of this adventure have a direct impact on the Battle Interactive ADCP5-2 Best Defense (although you do not need to play the BI to get the full benefit of this adventure).
 
SPEC5-4 Sky's Favor by James and Amanda Holdridge Paragon Tier
The nation of Cormyr calls upon the power of the Five Companies, but there is a price for this newly-forged alliance. Adventurers must travel to the very Pillars of Creation and retrieve artifacts stolen by the treacherous Seric Vargenos. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in the Elemental Chaos for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure happens at roughly the same time (in-game) as SPEC5-3, and after the events of ADCP5-1. The events of this adventure have a direct impact on the Battle Interactive ADCP5-2 Best Defense (although you do not need to play the BI to get the full benefit of this adventure).
 


Winter Fantasy 2013 Adventures

These adventures premiered at Winter Fantasy 2013 and are sanctioned for both public and private play.

ADCP5-1 Home's Last Light by Gary Affeldt, Jim Auwaerter, Elizabeth
Chaipraditkul, Edward Devaney, Claire
Hoffman, David Krolnik, Greg Marks,
Krishna Simonse, and Mickey Tan
Heroic and Paragon Tier
Elturgard has fallen. The leadership of the Order of Torm, corrupted by the followers of the Blue Flame and infiltrated by agents of Najara, has declared an alliance with Netheril. Elturgard's borders are closed, while rumors run rampant of strange plagues changing the populace into monstrous beasts and undead that do not fear the light of day. Those would would resist this evil have declared a government-in-exile and called upon all enemies of Netheril to aid in retaking the capital city of Elturel. The task will not be easy: even the glorious Companion of Amaunator has been despoiled. Nevertheless, Cormyr, Myth Drannor, and other great powers have joined forces to oppose the Netherese and Najaran conquerors. Some say that this battle will only be the beginning, that Netheril and Cormyr are about to be locked into a great war that may result in the desolation of the entire Forgotten Realms.
This is a two-round continuous-play Living Forgotten Realms Battle Interactive set in Elturgard for characters of the Heroic and Paragon tiers (levels 1-20). You should allow 9 hours of play time to run this event (we recommend two 4-hour back-to-back slots with a 1-hour break). This adventure is combat-intensive. Players who do not enjoy combat encounters are less likely to enjoy this adventure. We recommend that Event Organizers try to schedule at least five simultaneous tables of this event, and that at least three of the characters at each table be members of the same Adventuring Company or meta-organization. This adventure takes place after the events of ELTU4-4, SPEC5-1, and SPEC5-2, but you need not play the adventures in order or with the same character.
 
CORE5-1 Churning Shadows by Buddy Arnold and Mickey Tan Heroic Tier
The city is overrun by a plague of shadow creatures. You are tasked with rescuing the Cormyrean Ambassador from legions of undead. Will you be able to save innocent lives without becoming one of the living dead yourself? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Urmlaspyr for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure concludes the Trouble in Urmlaspyr Major Quest, and is also the conclusion to Chapter 1 of the Desolation series. The first four adventures in Chapter 1 are SPEC4-5, CORE4-3, CORE4-4, and CORE4-5. You can play the Chapter 1 adventures in any order, but we recommend that you play them all with the same character, and we recommend that you play the first four adventures before you play CORE5-1.
 
CORE5-2 A Radiance Faded by Chris Sniezak and Shawn Merwin Paragon Tier
Many fear that a Thayan plague is killing livestock in Thesk as a precursor to a full-scale invasion. The true cause may be much simpler but much more deadly. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Thesk and Rashemen for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is an epilogue to the Radiance Against Thay series, which included CORE1-2 Radiant Vessel of Thesk, CORE1-6 Incident at the Gorge of Gauros, and CORE1-14 What Storms May Come.
 
SPEC5-1 Morthac's Mansion by Dan Anderson Heroic Tier
A typical mission briefing is interrupted with urgent intelligence about a tactical advantage that could be gained by the resistance against the occupying forces in Elturel. Can you secure a location vital to the resistance? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Elturgard for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure is a sequel to ELTU4-4 The Fall of Elturgard and leads into the events of ADCP5-1 Home's Last Light. This is a combat-intensive adventure.
 
SPEC5-2 Closer to the Heart by Bill Buchalter and Michael Pearman Paragon Tier
Restoring the Companion is a crucial step in the effort to retake control of Elturel. Someone must journey into the depths of the Astral Sea to recover a ritual component known as the Heart of Light. To find the Heart requires more than just skill. Only the Trinity can lead the way. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set across the planes for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure takes place after the events of ELTU4-4 The Fall of Elturgard and leads into the events of ADCP5-1 Home's Last Light. More than most LFR adventures, this adventure benefits from significant advance preparations by the DM.
 
EPIC5-1 Plaguewrought Prism by Dan Anderson, Lori Anderson,
and Keith Richmond
Level 27 ONLY
When faced with a threat that even the gods fear, the powers of Faerûn turn to you. Unfortunately, there is far too much to do in what little time remains. You have only split seconds to prevent the coming apocalypse. A three-round Living Forgotten Realms Epic Campaign adventure for 27th-level characters. This adventure is a direct sequel to EPIC4-3 Dark Hearts of Madness.
 


Introductory Adventures

These adventures are designed to introduce new players to the campaign and to the core mechanics of 4th Edition D&D (they can also be played by veterans, of course). An Intro adventure can be run in a half-length slot (about 1.5 to 2 hours, although you may want to allow some extra time for character creation). Intro adventures only support 1st-level PCs (and the encounters are scaled appropriately). The players are free to create brand-new characters, to bring existing LFR characters who have not yet reached 2nd level, or to use the pre-generated characters available for download on this website.

INTR4-1 Born Every Minute by Shawn Merwin Level 1 Only
The Mooney & Sons Circus has delighted audiences young and old alike for years, spreading wonder throughout Vesperin. This year, however, the traveling carnival has experienced some troubles at its performances. The mayor of the next town on the schedule fears that his citizens might be in danger, so he asks a group of promising neophyte adventurers to investigate. A Living Forgotten Realms Introductory adventure for level 1 characters. This adventure may be played on its own (in which case it will take about two hours of game time) or combined with INTR4-2 into a standard four-hour adventure.
 
INTR4-2 This Way to the Egress by M. Sean Molley Level 1 Only
Teenagers in Vesperin have developed a funny habit of disappearing after the famous Mooney & Sons Circus comes to town. Their parents believe that they have run away, drawn by the lure of the circus, and will eventually find their way back home after learning that the life of a carny isn't all it's cracked up to be. The truth is far more sinister. Can you help these youngsters escape their cruel fate? A Living Forgotten Realms Introductory adventure for level 1 characters. This adventure may be played on its own (in which case it will take about two hours of game time) or combined with INTR4-1 into a standard four-hour adventure.


Recent Adventures

ABER4-1 The Price of Freedom by Ryan Cannon and Mickey Tan Paragon Tier
The Dusk Ports of Returned Abeir are considered fairly nice places to live. That is, if you aren't one of the citizens whose cruel ruler, the Green Duchess, decides to devour for a snack. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure involving the Scions of Amber meta-organization set in Returned Abeir for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the first part of the Scions of Hope Major Quest, which continues in ABER4-2.
 
ABER4-2 A Dream Frozen in Amber by Tom Dale Paragon Tier
The swallowed stronghold of Djerad Kusold has long been sought by those hoping to use its cache of dragonbane amber to finally rid Returned Abeir of the last of its dragon rulers. But can a legend truly bring salvation, or is it just a dream frozen in amber? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure involving the Scions of Amber meta-organization set in Returned Abeir for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the second part of the Scions of Hope Major Quest, which began in ABER4-1 and concludes in ABER4-3.
 
ABER4-3 A Little Rebellion by Thomas J. Scott Paragon Tier
The cruel reign of dragons within the Dusk Ports is a misery that can be suffered no longer. Will the spoils of a recent expedition to Melabrauth be enough to spark a revolution to finally drive the heartless tyrants out? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure involving the Scions of Amber meta-organization set in Returned Abeir for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the third and final part of the Scions of Hope Major Quest, which began in ABER4-1 and continued in ABER4-2.
 
AGLA2-3 Sojourner's Way by James B. Holdridge, Jr. H1 (Levels 1-4)
The Tannath Mountains are poorly explored and even more poorly mapped. A humble cartographer seeks adventuring companions for his attempt to blaze a trail through these rough, steep spires. What would drive a man to undertake such a dangerous task? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Aglarond for characters levels 1-4 (H1 level band). This adventure is the second part of the Invisible Road Major Quest, which began in AGLA1-5 Silver Lining and will conclude with a Heroic tier adventure during campaign year 4.
 
AGLA2-4 Fruit of a Poisoned Tree by Jared Fegan and John Brice P3 (levels 17-20)
Lesser evils lead to greater. An old villain returns, desperately seeking revenge. A member of the Simbarch's Council would like nothing better than to topple the aloof mageocracy and install himself as Grand Simbarch, even if that leads to civil war in Aglarond. Yet for every scheme, there is an even more powerful master lurking behind the curtain. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Aglarond for characters levels 17-20 (P3 level band). This adventure concludes the Something Smells in Veltalar Major Quest, which began in AGLA1-3 Worst of All Snares and continued in AGLA1-6 Twisted Roots Run Deep. Play of the previous adventures is recommended, but not required.
 
CALI3-4 Fragments of a Shattered Mind by Brian Schoner Paragon Tier
In the human bastion of Almraiven, a gifted magical scholar has gone missing. Agents of the Efreet Lord Memnon are known to be interested in her studies; has she been kidnapped for her knowledge, or is something more subtle afoot? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Calimshan for characters of the Paragon Tier (levels 11-20). Note: This is a stand-alone adventure. The story of CALI3-4 is not connected to the events of CALI3-1 through CALI3-3, so players need not make an effort to play this adventure with the same character who plays the other Year 3 Calimshan adventures.
 
CORE4-3 Running Amok by Pieter Sleijpen Heroic Tier
For years the tenuous peace between Netheril and Cormyr held. For years the city of Urmlaspyr, last remnant of free Sembia, lay in between. Now something stirs in the darkest places of the city. Citizens run amok without apparent cause, wielding shadow powers they did not have before. What could cause these otherwise peaceful people to go into a murderous frenzy? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Urmlaspyr for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure is part of Chapter 1 of the Desolation series. Chapter 1 includes four Heroic tier adventures that can be played in any order, leading up to the chapter's conclusion in CORE5-1. The other three parts are SPEC4-5, CORE4-4, and CORE4-5. You can play the first four adventures in any order, but you should try to play them with the same character, and you should try to play all four parts before you play CORE5-1. The Desolation series also includes Paragon tier adventures (starting with SPEC4-6). It is not expected that a player can follow both tracks with the same PC.
 
CORE4-4 Shadow Siege by Bill Buchalter Heroic Tier
A radical dissident makes dark alliances and takes drastic measures to advance his political agenda. Is there time to stop the evil he has set in motion? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Urmlaspyr for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure is part of Chapter 1 of the Desolation series. Chapter 1 includes four Heroic tier adventures that can be played in any order, leading up to the chapter's conclusion in CORE5-1. The other three parts are SPEC4-5, CORE4-3, and CORE4-5. You can play the first four adventures in any order, but you should try to play them with the same character, and you should try to play all four parts before you play CORE5-1. The Desolation series also includes Paragon tier adventures (starting with SPEC4-6). It is not expected that a player can follow both tracks with the same PC.
 
CORE4-5 Skeletons in the Closet by Steven Martin Heroic Tier
Shadows grow long in the free city of Urmlaspyr. The city calls for adventurers, as the rising darkness overwhelms the capabilities of the city guard. A noble's manor has been overtaken by shadowy undead. Can you reach the source of the haunting and stop it before it spreads throughout the city? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Urmlaspyr for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure is part of Chapter 1 of the Desolation series. Chapter 1 includes four Heroic tier adventures that can be played in any order, leading up to the chapter's conclusion in CORE5-1. The other three parts are SPEC4-5, CORE4-3, and CORE4-4. You can play the first four adventures in any order, but you should try to play them with the same character, and you should try to play all four parts before you play CORE5-1. The Desolation series also includes Paragon tier adventures (starting with SPEC4-6). It is not expected that a player can follow both tracks with the same PC.
 
ELTU4-1 Born by Fiends by Alan Patrick Heroic Tier
The Companion has gone dark, and now something stirs in the heart of Elturel itself. What chance does the honor-bound Church of Torm have when faced with an adversary that has neither morals nor compassion? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Elturgard for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure is the first part of a four-part story arc. We recommend playing ELTU4-1 through ELTU4-4 in order, with the same character, if possible.
 
ELTU4-2 The Iriaebor Gambit by Amanda Holdridge Heroic Tier
There is turmoil in Iriaebor and some faction in the city wants to ensure that it continues unabated. Merchants are being slaughtered, their bodies displayed in the streets.

These two ALs support character levels 15-20; however, the adventure was written and playtested with the assumption that no character would be below 17th level. We recommend playing this adventure with level 17-20 characters, but any legal AL 18 or AL 20 table can play. Tables playing AL 18 with predominantly level 15/16 PCs may find this adventure extremely challenging.

New Adapted Adventures

ADAP4-1 Leader of the Pack by Julian Sieber Adventure Level 6 (levels 3-9)
Three years ago, Ulmar Lightborn left the town of Silvergrail to embark on a grand adventure. The would-be hero never returned from his very first quest. Ulmar's younger brother Zelgar stayed behind and now serves as Silvergrail's cleric. You've arrived just in time to participate in an unexpected family reunion. A Living Forgotten Realms adapted adventure set in the Moonshae Isles for Adventure Level 6 (supports characters of levels 3-9, but recommended for levels 4-6). This adventure is found in issue 194 of Dungeon online, part of D&D Insider. Dungeon adventures may be downloaded by subscribers from the Wizards of the Coast website. This adaptation document does not present adjusted stat blocks for multiple tiers; any legal AL 6 table can play. The DM is expected to use the stat blocks from the published adventure and adjust accordingly. At least one person at the table (either a player or the DM) must have an active subscription to D&D Insider. We recommend that you allow at least six hours of playing time to complete this adventure.
 
ADAP4-2 Stick in the Mud by Aeryn "Blackdirge" Rudel Adventure Level 2 (levels 1-5)
The theocracy of Elturgard was changed forever when army of plaguechanged monsters nearly destroyed the city of Elturel. All seemed lost, but heroes turned the tide and destroyed a terrible abomination of pure Spellplague energy. The forces unleashed during and after the battle transformed what had been a small local plagueland into the massive Chaos Scar. One of the city's most ardent defenders has recently discovered that uncontrolled magical energy is once again building up along the boundary of the plagueland. What will you find on the other side? A Living Forgotten Realms adapted adventure set in Elturgard for characters levels 1-5 (but recommended for levels 1-2). Stick in the Mud is the first part of the Chaos Scar series. This adventure is found in issue 171 of Dungeon online, part of D&D Insider. Dungeon adventures may be downloaded by subscribers from the Wizards of the Coast website. This adaptation document does not present adjusted stat blocks for multiple tiers; any legal Adventure Level 2 table can play (character levels 1-5 are eligible for AL 2). Please bear in mind that the stat blocks in the adventure were written for a party of level 1 characters (however, the adaptation document does update all the stat blocks to MM3 damage expressions). Tables of all level 4-5 characters might not find this adventure challenging. At least one person at the table (either a player or the DM) must have an active subscription to D&D Insider. This adventure should be playable from start to finish in the span of a single four-hour LFR game session.

Against the Giants
Giants have been raiding the civilzed lands, visiting death and destruction upon villages, towns, and farmlands. A band of adventurers has assembled to punish the marauding giants. The legendary 'G' series of adventures by Gary Gygax from 1st Edition D&D is now available for 4th Edition, reimagined by Christopher Perkins - including an all-new chapter dealing with the stone giants.
Against the Giants comprises four individual adventures, which may be found in Dungeon issues 197-200. Each adventure has been adapted separately for LFR. They can be run individually, or as a four-part Paragon tier series. Characters who play all four parts (regardless of order) are eligible for a special Major Quest award. The target levels for each successive adventure increase, so the target ALs of the adaptations also increase: AL 12, AL 14, AL 16, and finally AL 18. It is therefore possible for a character to "out-level" the series since each part requires a legal table of the adapted AL (so, for example, 16th-level characters cannot play ADAP4-3 since AL 12 only allows characters of levels 11-15). As with all LFR adaptations of Dungeon adventures, at least one person at the table (either a player or the DM) must have an active subscription to D&D Insider.

ADAP4-3 Steading of the Hill Giant Chief by Gary Gygax and
Christopher Perkins
Adventure Level 12
The closest giant stronghold - and the greatest immediate threat to the safety of nearby settlements - is a great timber fortress populated by hill giants. A Living Forgotten Realms adapted adventure for Adventure Level 12 (supports characters of levels 11-15, but recommended for levels 12-14). This adventure is found in issue 197 of Dungeon. This adaptation document does not present adjusted stat blocks for multiple tiers; any legal AL 12 table can play. We recommend that you allow at least sixteen hours of playing time to complete this adventure (the equivalent of three to four standard LFR rounds).
 
ADAP4-4 Warrens of the Stone Giant Thane by Christopher Perkins Adventure Level 14
Until recently, the stone giants rarely ventured far from their warrens in the craggy mountain foothills. But something has changed. A Living Forgotten Realms adapted adventure for characters levels 11-17 (but recommended for levels 14-16). This adventure is found in issue 198 of Dungeon. This adaptation document does not present adjusted stat blocks for multiple tiers; any legal Adventure Level 14 table can play (character levels 11-17 are eligible for AL 14). We recommend that you allow at least sixteen hours of playing time to complete this adventure (the equivalent of three to four standard LFR rounds).
 
ADAP4-5 Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl by Gary Gygax and
Christopher Perkins
Adventure Level 16
Although the success of the giant alliance rests squarely on the broad shoulders of King Snurre, ruler of the fire giants, his staunchest ally is Grugnur, the frost giant jarl. Killing Grugnur would surely create disorder and unrest in their ranks. Until recently, the location of the frost giant stronghold was a well-guarded secret. However, a map has been found... A Living Forgotten Realms adapted adventure for characters levels 13-19 (but recommended for levels 16-18). This adventure is found in issue 199 of Dungeon. This adaptation document does not present adjusted stat blocks for multiple tiers; any legal Adventure Level 16 table can play (character levels 13-19 are eligible for AL 16). We recommend that you allow at least sixteen hours of playing time to complete this adventure (the equivalent of three to four standard LFR rounds).
 
ADAP4-6 Hall of the Fire Giant King by Gary Gygax and
Christopher Perkins
Adventure Level 18
King Snurre of the fire giants rules from a mighty hall in the volcanic mountains, beyond the reach of most mortal enemies. The heroes sent to dispatch him, however, are no mere mortals. A Living Forgotten Realms adapted adventure for characters levels 15-20 (but recommended for levels 18-20). This adventure is found in issue 200 of Dungeon. This adaptation document does not present adjusted stat blocks for multiple tiers; any legal Adventure Level 18 table can play (character levels 15-20 are eligible for AL 18). We recommend that you allow at least sixteen hours of playing time to complete this adventure (the equivalent of three to four standard LFR rounds).

Halls of Undermountain
Beneath the streets of Waterdeep, a sinister dungeon awaits adventurers brave enough to face its perils. Created ages ago by the wizard Halaster, the sprawling dungeon is a lair for terrible monsters and ruthless villains. In the dark chambers, they hunger for victims and plot the downfall of those who dwell on the streets above. Who will unravel the twisting labyrinth to reveal its secrets, claim its treasures, and stop the foul machinations of the dungeon's denizens?
Because of the size of the dungeon, we have broken the LFR adaptation into three parts. We recommend that you play them in order, starting with a brand-new level 1 character, as the published adventure was designed to take a party from level 1 to level 5, but the DM has some leeway to adapt as needed for tables of varying levels (as long as the table is legal for Adventure Level 2). The adaptation documents do not present updated stat blocks for multiple tiers. Each of the three parts of the adventure stands on its own; PCs that successfully complete all three parts are eligible for a special Major Quest award from the upcoming Dungeon adventure Halaster's Haunt (which we will of course adapt for LFR when it is published).
The design of the sourcebook is more open-ended than has traditionally been the case in published 4th Edition products, leaving many of the details up to the DM. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that an LFR DM will need to invest more preparation time than usual in order to run these adventures, even using the LFR adaptation documents. As with all LFR adaptated adventures, you must have a copy of the published Halls of Undermountain sourcebook. The DM will also need a copy of Monster Vault (or access to the D&D Compendium) as the adventure does not reprint statistics for creatures from that book.

ADAP4-7 Halls of Undermountain 1:
Zarr's Invincible Army
by Shawn Merwin and Matt Sernett Adventure Level 2 (levels 1-5)
A noblewoman fears that her nephew is lost on a fool's errand into the dreaded Undermountain, and she turns to a group of adventurers to rescue him. The first step is to make the entrance safe. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Waterdeep and Undermountain for Adventure Level 2 (supports characters levels 1-5). This adventure is found in the Halls of Undermountain sourcebook from Wizards of the Coast.

This adventure is found in the Halls of Undermountain sourcebook from Wizards of the Coast. We recommend that you allow at least 16 hours of playing time to complete this adventure (the equivalent of three to four standard LFR rounds).

For years the tenuous peace between Netheril and Cormyr held. For years the city of Urmlaspyr, last remnant of free Sembia, cursed to be shrouded in perpetual shadow, lay in between.

Characters who have completed the Battlecloak Saga (CALI3-1, 3-2, and 3-3) will find that their past deeds make a difference in these new adventures, but prior experience in Calimshan is not required.

ADCP4-2 The Lost City of Sudolphor by Dan Anderson Heroic and Paragon Tier
The ever-shifting sands of the Calimshan desert have uncovered the ancient city of Sudolphor. The forces of Calimport, Memnon, and Almraiven converge upon the city, each striving to gain a tactical advantage in their ongoing struggle for supremacy. A Living Forgotten Realms two-round continuous-play Battle Interactive set in Calimshan for characters of the Heroic and Paragon tiers (levels 1-20). You should allow 9 hours of play time to run this event (we recommend two 4-hour back-to-back slots with a 1-hour break). This adventure is combat-intensive.

Other reports indicate that the Twisted Rune, a highly secretive cabal of powerful undead spellcasters, may be involved. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Calimshan for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). The Calimemnon Crystal Major Quest comprises CALI4-1, 4-2, and 4-3; you may play these three adventures in any order.

These adventures premiered at the Dungeons & Dragons Experience 2012 and are sanctioned for both public and private play.

ADCP4-1 City of Destinies by M. Sean Molley Heroic and Paragon Tier
The city of Myth Nantar is the center of the sea elves' society. Although it once rested entirely beneath the waves of the Sea of Fallen Stars, the changes wrought by the Spellplague exposed Myth Nantar's upper levels to the air. Now the sea elves and the surface races mingle and trade freely here, protected from their enemies by ancient elven high magic. Thanks to the mythal, the citizens of Myth Nantar need not fear the threat of the Abolethic Sovereignty. Or so they believe. A two-round continuous-play Living Forgotten Realms Battle Interactive set in Myth Nantar for characters of the Heroic and Paragon tiers (levels 1-20, but all characters must be of the same tier and able to play at the table's chosen Adventure Level).
You should allow at least 9 hours of play time to run this event (we recommend two 4-hour back-to-back slots with a 1-hour break in the middle). This adventure is combat-intensive, and the combat encounters may be more difficult than those in a typical LFR adventure. You will need good resource management, strong teamwork, and a bit of luck to succeed. We recommend that at least three of the characters at the table be members of the same Adventuring Company or meta-organization. This adventure takes place after (and is directly caused by) the events of SPEC4-1 Cerulean Dreams and SPEC4-2 The Writhing Obelisk. Play of the prior adventures is recommended, but is neither required nor assumed.
The encounters in this adventure are designed to be played using the poster maps that are included with the print products The Book of Vile Darkness and Map Pack: Haunted Temples from Wizards of the Coast.

SPEC4-1 Cerulean Dreams by Joshua Randall Heroic Tier
I awaken slowly, my head throbbing with pain. The first thing I notice is the overpowering smell of brine. The light hurts my eyes as I peer around the room. I am still groggy from ... from ... well, I can't quite remember exactly what happened. Where is this place, anyway? When did I get here? Why does it look like a cross between a torture chamber and a prison cell? Who are all these green-skinned, bug-eyed creatures shambling around? I rub my eyes and that's when I notice the webbed flesh growing between my fingers... A Living Forgotten Realms Special adventure set in the Sea of Fallen Stars for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). This adventure will be of particular interest to characters who played SPEC3-3 Dance of the Sun and Moon or who have previously encountered agents of the Abolethic Sovereignty. This adventure takes place at the same time in-game as SPEC4-2 The Writhing Obelisk, so a character that plays SPEC4-1 may not subsequently play SPEC4-2.
 
SPEC4-2 The Writhing Obelisk by Larry DeLucas Paragon Tier
No one knows why the aboleths of Xxiphu take so many prisoners. Their motives and minds are as alien and incomprehensible as the Far Realm itself. Their flying city appears seemingly at random, striking at locations all around the Sea of Fallen Stars, vanishing as quickly as it appeared. The luckier captives are simply killed outright. Those less fortunate are subjected to horrifying experiments, transforming their bodies and minds in ways that not even the Plaguescarred would recognize. But this time the Abolethic Sovereignty has gone too far. It's time to take the fight to Xxiphu. It's time to crack open the writhing obelisk. A Living Forgotten Realms Special adventure set in the Sea of Fallen Stars for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure will be of particular interest to characters who played SPEC1-11 Drawing a Blank or who have previously encountered agents of the Abolethic Sovereignty. This adventure takes place at the same time in-game as SPEC4-1 Cerulean Dreams, so a character that played SPEC4-1 may not subsequently participate in SPEC4-2.
 


Gen Con 2011 Adventures

These adventures premiered at Gen Con Indy 2011 and are sanctioned for both public and private play. To be clear, the Elturgard Story Area has two concurrent Major Quests, each of which consists of three adventures. These are separate stories; while we recommend that you pursue each quest line in order with the same character, it doesn't have to be the same character in both of the quests. The odd-numbered adventures (ELTU3-1, ELTU3-3, and ELTU3-5) form the Sinister Intentions Major Quest, while the even-numbered adventures (ELTU3-2, ELTU3-4, and ELTU3-6) form the Controlling Chaos Major Quest.

He needs a band of daring adventurers to conduct the search for him -- a search that leads through the twisted streets of Mintar, into dark dungeons where secrets are torn from souls the way flesh is torn from bone. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Calimshan for characters of the Heroic Tier (levels 1-10). This is the first part of the Battlecloak Saga, which continues with CALI3-2 and concludes in CALI3-3.

The search for the Battlecloak of Vycaena leads to the city of Memnon, where fire genasi enjoy an opulent lifestyle built on the backs of human slaves.

A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Calimshan for characters of the Heroic Tier (levels 1-10). This is the third and final part of the Battlecloak Saga, which began with CALI3-1 and continued in CALI3-2.

A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Elturgard for characters of the Heroic Tier (levels 1-10).

ELTU3-6 True Blue by Thomas J. Scott Heroic Tier
Rumors have surfaced that a new power in Iriaebor has secretly developed a cure for the spellscarred citizens of Elturgard. While Elturel itself has failed to deliver a cure, its leaders are suspicious that a city in political turmoil could have solved the problem so quickly. You and your fellow adventurers are sent to seek the truth, wherever it may lead. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Elturgard for characters of the Heroic Tier (levels 1-10).

SPEC3-3 Dance of the Sun and Moon by Dave Brainard Heroic Tier
The orbit of Toril's moon often brings it across the sun's path, but astrological predictions of an upcoming total eclipse have sparked great interest. Many followers of Amaunator and Selûne have gathered at the small city of Sapra in the land of Turmish, the best place from which to view the eclipse. The worshippers of the Moonmaiden see this as a time of celebration, with their Lady ascendant, while those who revere the Sunlord are less enthusiastic about the celestial conjunction. But it is the followers of a different entity, guided by maddening whispers, who prepare to enact a far different ritual when the earth darkens and the stars shine at midday. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Westgate and Turmish for characters of the Heroic Tier (levels 1-10).
Important Note: If you played SPEC3-3 at Gen Con Indy 2011 and received Story Award SPEC50 for something that you did during the adventure, there is an updated version of this Story Award in the final version of the adventure. You can either download the entire adventure and replace your existing certificate with the new version, or you can get the updated cert from the LFR Campaign Errata file when it becomes available.
 


Origins 2011 Adventures

These adventures premiered at the 2011 Origins Game Fair (except for PREQ3-1, but it is included here because it is a lead-in to ADCP3-2). These adventures are available for both public and private play.

ADCP3-2 From Dawn Till Dusk by Krishna Simonse, Pierre van Rooden,
Pieter Sleijpen, and Renout van Rijn
Heroic and Paragon Tier
The Empire of Netheril has taken over the fortress of Spellgard -- Saharelgard, as they name it now -- and are compelling its oracle, Lady Saharel, to serve their will. Their dominance is not yet assured, but with reinforcements on the way, soon the pass will be closed and Netherese control of the area will be absolute. Only a twelve-hour window of opportunity is left to liberate Saharel and prevent the Shades from achieving a major victory. A Living Forgotten Realms two-round continuous-play Battle Interactive set at Spellgard for characters of the Heroic and Paragon tiers (levels 1-20). You should allow 11 hours of play time to run this event (we recommend two 5-hour back-to-back slots with a 1-hour dinner break). This adventure is combat-intensive. Players who do not enjoy combat encounters are less likely to enjoy this adventure. It is recommended that at least three of the characters at the table be members of the same Adventuring Company or meta-organization.
We suggest, but do not require, that you play the prequel adventure PREQ3-1 Shrouded Visions before playing this adventure. Those who have interacted with the Netherese in previous adventures (particularly NETH3-1 through NETH3-3) may also find some story connections. Characters that participated in the LFR-adapted published adventure Scepter Tower of Spellgard should find this adventure particularly interesting (although the plot of ADCP3-2 is completely new, many of the locations will be familiar).

Someone is needed to locate the artifact and ensure that it is used for the purpose it was intended. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Netheril for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the first part of the Sand and Shadows Major Quest, which continues with NETH3-2 and concludes with NETH3-3.

Lady Saharel of Spellgard provides answers to the questions of those deemed worthy... but deemed worthy by whom? Answers beget more questions when pilgrims return from a restored Saharelgard with prophecies obtained after an offering to the new power in charge: the church of Shar. This is a half-round (two-hour) Living Forgotten Realms adventure for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10). Although it is about half the length of a typical LFR adventure, this adventure offers many opportunities for roleplaying. If you choose to explore all of the different options available, the game can easily last more than two hours.
Note: This adventure takes place after the events described in ADCP1-2 through ADCP1-4 Scepter Tower of Spellgard and is also an optional prelude to ADCP3-2 From Dawn Till Dusk.

This adventure occurs at roughly the same time as SPEC3-1 Roots of Corruption: Infestation and is related to the events chronicled in SPEC1-3 Ghosts of the Past: Hive of Corruption.
 
TYMA2-3 Tying Up Loose Ends by Mark Pekel P2 (Levels 14-17)
Evil cults have menaced the residents of Tymanther on several past occasions, with threats ranging from Ruinspoke to Djerad Thymar to the Black Ash Plains. New information suggests that now is the time to strike at one particular cult's leadership and put an end to its activities in the region once and for all. But those who supply such valuable secrets often have their own agendas... A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Tymanther for characters levels 14-17 (P2 level band). This adventure is a loose sequel to TYMA1-3 Tools of the Trade, and a direct sequel to TYMA1-6 Troubled Roads; it wraps up storylines from both of those adventures and thus will be of interest to characters who participated in TYMA1-3 and/or TYMA1-6. (TYMA2-3 offers a Major Quest XP award, but only to PCs who have the appropriate Story Award from TYMA1-3 that began the Major Quest.) Play of either or both of the previous adventures is neither required nor assumed.
 
TYMA2-4 Stand Against the Darkness by Mike McTee H3 (Levels 7-10)
Kobolds have been raiding the village of Ruinspoke and its outlying farms for months now. Lord Tuanek has decided that the time has come to teach the kobolds a lesson they will not soon forget. And if the enigmatic Queen Sisay deigns to make an appearance at the head of her so-called army, Tuanek has a rather pointed message he'd like you to deliver to her in person. Will you assist Ruinspoke's defenders as they make their stand against the rising darkness? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Tymanther for characters levels 7-10 (H3 level band). This adventure is the conclusion of the Rise of Darkness Major Quest, which began in TYMA2-1 and continued in TYMA2-2. Play of the previous adventures is recommended, but not required.
 
WATE2-3 Noble Dangers by Claire and Keith Hoffman Levels 11-14 (P1)
In the finale to the Restoring Splendor major quest, you are asked to investigate an earthmote hanging over the Sword Mountains. Although the mote itself poses no apparent risk, it might harbor dangers to Waterdeep. Great heroism will be needed to face and defeat your adversaries in the skies. An ancient threat has returned, and the fates of House Moonstar and all Waterdeep may lie in the balance. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Waterdeep for characters levels 11-14. The previous adventures in this Major Quest are WATE2-1 Gilding a Noble and WATE2-2 Closing a Deal. This adventure can run long; we recommend that you allow 5-6 hours of play time, if possible. Warning! This adventure is the culmination of a Major Quest and contains more difficult combat encounters than a standard P1 adventure. Level 11-12 tables probably should not play the high-tier version unless the players are both experienced and confident.
 
WATE2-4 Stage Misdirection by Brad Gardner H1 (Levels 1-4)
The performing arts have always been popular in Waterdeep, but the competition for best actor has become cutthroat. Can you make sense of all the drama and find the true plot? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Waterdeep for characters levels 1-4 (H1 level band).
 


My Realms Adventure Packets

Please use MYRE3-1 for all Heroic tier My Realms adventures, and MYRE3-2 for all Paragon tier My Realms adventures. If you created a My Realms adventure using one of the MYRE1-X or MYRE2-X packets, those are now retired. However, you may update your adventure to the new XP and treasure guidelines (converting from the old level bands to the new Adventure Levels). MYRE3-1 and MYRE3-2 include expanded Treasure options (compared to MYRE1-X and MYRE2-X). You may NOT retroactively award additional XP or gold for previously-played My Realms adventures, nor may players who previously spent found-item slots on the older, more restrictive treasure bundles go back and choose new items. The new guidelines apply only for My Realms adventures that are played on or after 20 April 2011. If you have any questions, please post in the LFR Community Forum.

MYRE3-1 My Realms (Heroic) [Replaces MYRE1-1, MYRE1-2, and MYRE1-3] Heroic Tier
MYRE3-2 My Realms (Paragon) [Replaces MYRE1-4, MYRE2-1, and MYRE2-2] Paragon Tier
MYRE4-1 My Realms: Calimshan by Dan Anderson (plot hooks) Heroic and Paragon Tier
Perhaps you would like to hear a tale? I know just the one: a story of danger and heroism in the deserts of Calimshan... A Living Forgotten Realms adventure of the DM's devising set in Calimshan for characters of the Heroic tier (levels 1-10) or the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This packet follows the normal rules for a My Realms adventure, but it also contains specific adventure hooks, Story Awards, and Treasures to allow DMs to design and run adventures set in Calimshan for Heroic-tier or Paragon-tier PCs.
