The Iron Bastion: Rise of the Blood Watch


A Shadow Looms Over Anchorome

When a band of heroes journey to Revonar's mainland, they are drawn
into a grand conspiracy, the culmination of which may well decide the fate of nations.

All the while, a force of dread continues to spread over the countryside,
its icy grip slowly closing upon an unsuspecting people.

As a sinister plot unfolds beneath the mask of this new enemy,
what fate will these heroes bring to people of Revonar?

This is the complete first module for The Iron Bastion adventure series. This adventure includes:

  • A 52 page adventure introducing players to the Sundered Realms saga.
  • Revised rules for Sanity Checks and Corruption as used in the Demonbane Chronicles adventure series.
  • New magic items - Faesever, Ellsif, and the Dagger of Long Shadow
  • New character background features and optional bonds
  • Want a free sample? - Download the first chapter preview here!

Important: This adventure is set on the continent of Anchorome, west of Faerun. It is highly recommended that you download the Sundered Realms Player's Guide.

Hello i am putting together a compendium of all the related pdfs and i noticed this collection is still incomplete. Do we have any updated info on this? Or will i have to home brew a conclusion? (I would rather use a completed story since for cohesiveness.)

This adventure is planned to be adopted into a much larger project than originally intended. It was unfortunately sidelined by a long list of life events (as well as AL work, Guild Adept work, Esper Genesis, etc.). I would like to get back to the full scope of this sooner rather than later.

Has this product line been abandoned? I see there have been other productions created by the author in the past year, but nothing for this series or the Demonband Chronicles (only one product produced for that series as well, Curse of the Demon Stone). I can't help but wonder what happened to both series for they both seemed really interesting.

Hi, Ralph. I'm truly apologize to you and everyone else that I have yet to be able to get back on this project. It definitely has not been abandoned. All of my time over the last year has been taken over by other projects such as Esper Genesis and the DM's Guild Adept releases. Once our core books are out, I'll have a lot more time to jump back into developing the Sundered Realms.

Hello, I am also wondering when part 2 will be released. My group is getting close to finishing Part 1 and they are all very excited to continue the story. We are enjoying it very much and want more!

Fortress of Eternal Night is in the works but getting some other projects out of the way first. I'm aiming for mid-late autumn but not throwing anything specific out at the moment to prevent jinxing myself again lol.

Awesome! Thanks man. I know this is probably not going to be the easiest thing for a first time DM but when I read the description I knew this was the campaign I wanted to do with my friends and was hoping the next part would be out some time soon. :D

Thanks! Really happy you like the background. The adventure should get your characters definitely to 4th, probably almost 5th depending on number of players. I tried to detail it well enough to make referencing easy but feel free to hit me up with any questions. Hope you and your group have fun!

Just wondering. Its been a while. So I was wondering if the second part is out yet? I wanted to know because my last group fell apart so I have some time if its not out yet but I really want to do this one and the only other ones I find are EXTREMELY short lol. Don't mean to rush if you if it sounds like I am.

I added a link to your product in my list of online resources for creating DMs Guild titles (in a thread over at EN World, in the DMs Guild sub-forum), so users could see an example of some of the excellent art available for purchase from online vendors.

I hope this nets you some sales!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
