DDAL05-01 Treasure of the Broken Hoard (5e)


A famous relic hunter seeks adventurers to help her find caches of treasure hidden by the now-
defeated followers of the Cult of the Dragon.

Her maps and notes may lead the way to great wealth—or a terrible death.

And do other parties have designs on the treasure as well?

I wanted to have a look at the preview before buying into this one, but the preview only contains standard DDAL text, so nothing useful in that preview at all.

Does anyone have a good take on how to ret-con the party starting Parnast (DDAL0501) and 'later' arriving in Parnast for the first time from The Black Road (DDAL0502)?

In S9, do each mission in this allow players to level up or do all the missions count as a collective as 1 level up?

They can choose to level after each min adventure, but if they hit level 5 they can no longer participate with that character as it is a module for character levels 1-4 only. Likewise, the DM gets a DM reward for each mini-adventure.

This was the first AL mod I was exposed to, and is a good starting adventure. Part 1 was a good scenario for the beginners at the table to get a feel for the mechanics of 5th edition, ranging from skill checks to environmental shifts to surprisingly multi-faceted combat scenarios.

I played this with some teens and adults, mostly new players, and it was a perfect starter game.

I played parts 1 and 2, and I ran parts 3 and 4. A lot of fun. Action, traps and puzzles. A bit lighter on role playing and NPCs but I'm not quite finished with the module yet.

This was my, and my party's, first experience with an Adventurer's League product. I decided to run DnD one night, bought the product, and was ready to run in 15 minutes; 4 hours of play time and we're only 2/5 through! Easily digestible, fun adventures at a bargain price.

got to say the first part was fun to run i love the swarm of tiny goblins (i also like to see how other dms reskin monsters). the story awards were interesting i think the last one was a little excessive for level 1-2 characters but since it was the last module they should be able to take care of it before it really became a problem

This was the first mod I ever ran in AL. So I'll do a review for each section.
Hill - Downright silly fun. Teeny tiny gobs and a shruken hill giant makes for humorous fights. Though the hill giant was easily defeated by my party even with maxed hitpoints. Blooddrinker is still a loved pet by my party's druid even now into tier 2.
Stone - The badger encounter is... interesting. Not a challenge but not a cake walk, there will be massive table variance there. The family of galeb dur were a fun surprise for my group. Their biggest challenge? How to get past the stone giants butt.
Frost - Fun dungeon crawl and sneaky trap at the start. My party of four nearly tpk'd on the final fight. Several failed their saves and that was almost a quick undoing for them. When DMing this, try to keep in mind your players mods to saves in deciding party strength.
Fire - I may have gone off the rails slightly and turned the kobolds into a non-combat fight with the party persuading them, but then the group turned...See more

This is easily my favorite of the 5 mini adventure introductions. It has fun rewards for players (who doesn't want a miniaturized bear?), a good mixture of puzzles and combat, and introduces the concepts of SKT to the players. Biggest encouragement, however, is to think about the order they do them — the last of the mini modules really should be last, but they could pick them in any order.

This is a great little flavor for SKT and a solid intro. Good puzzles. Great little theme dungeons that leave you wanting more with an interesting story to boot that I found to tie the end of Season 1/2 with SKT perfectly. There are some deep, very cool map ideas in here.

I've run these adventures multiple times for new players.
I really appreciate the flavour of the individual scenarios. It makes them memorable and excellent for first-timers.
Some of them are incredibly difficult if you have a small or inexperienced party, and I would recommend DMs consider the combat style of the party when making adjustments for monsters with the death burst ability in particular.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
