BEGIN YOUR ADVENTURES IN CHULT FIGHTING AN ANCIENT EVIL, RETURNED TO CLAIM DOMINION OVER ALL!

In Chult’s Valley of Dread, warring tribes of lizardfolk have kept each other in check for centuries. As the tribes slowly fall under the sway of a new leader, omens point to the return of an ancient threat: the demon-spawned Lizard King. Adventurers from a far-away realm find themselves in the middle of the fray. Their heroics could save the land from terrible evil, or it might play a part in bringing about doom!

Return of the Lizard King is a D&D Adventurers League legal adventure for characters level 1-4, playable as a lead-in to Tomb of Annihilation or suited to launch your own Chult-based campaign. Report your players’ decisions, and see how they affect a forthcoming high-level adventure in the same setting! The adventure also includes two new playable races (the wilden and the Chultan lizardfolk), class archetypes (the druid's Circle of Reaping and the cleric's Survival domain), backgrounds, feats, spells, magic items, and more than 20 new monsters designed specifically for this adventure, for a Chult campaign, and for Tomb of Annihilation.

The adventure contains separate parts for each level, one through four. Characters that start the adventure as brand new level 1 characters should finish the adventure as a level five character. Run time for each part is approximately 4 hours, although play time varies drastically by DM and group. The play time for the entire adventure is approximately 12 - 20 hours.

[NOTE: The races, classes, backgrounds, spells, feats, and magic items in this product are only AL legal if you have special campaign documentation that allows it. Only the adventure and the monsters are considered AL legal without that documentation. See http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/news/dms-guild-adept-news for the complete rules for using any Guild Adept product for AL play.]

I am interested in getting this :) So as it stands now this is still AL legal for historic campaign correct?

Hi there, anyone know what to do about the certain permanent magic item that players may find (however unlikely) in Chapter 3? It's not listed in the appendix, and isn't a story item; reading the ALDM, nothing in particular seemed to apply to it. It has no rarity listed. Trying to figure out if it's AL legal or not. Thanks!

I heard this adventure includes Beasts (Giant Spitting Lizard, Mutated Crocodile, etc) and Fey (Pine Wilden & Willow Wilden).

Is it AL legal to use these creatures for Wild Shape, Polymorph, & Conjure Animals / Conjure Woodland Beings?

Unless it is normally AL legal for beasts from adventures to be usable in those ways, then no. If it is normally legal for those uses, then you will still want to ask the AL admins directly.

Thanks. I have been working on Revenge of the Lizard Queen as I get free time. Unfortunately, free time has been very limited because of other projects. But it is still on my to-do list, and I beg forgiveness for people who are waiting for it. I want to do it justice, which takes time and focus.

Will Revenge of the Lizard Queen ever be released? It's been quite a long time, and I have some players interested in what happens next.

One of the comments suggests that there is Fantasy Ground .mod included with this adventure? Is that the case? I might be snapping this one up.

Please disregard; I couldn't resist buying it anyway. For anyone wondering, yes it does come with a Fantasy Grounds .mod! I'm excited to take my group through this one.

The FG mod needs a lot of TLC: most of the combat encounters aren’t keyed to maps. So you’ll need to to a few hours of tweaking before running.

Shawn i have run this adventure twice and have started on the 3rd time. it is a great adventure. i run it for adventure league group and everyone says what a difference it is from others. My only problem is my players keep wanting to fight the queen of creeping vines and i have no clue how to run her. Is she just some kind of fey?

Hey Shawn, loved playing this with you at Winter Fantasy! I'm running it for my own table and they are harboring a grudge for the Queen of the Creeping Vines. Do you happen to have a stat block for her?

Suggestion if you want to Adventure League level from 1 to 4. Then this should be added.
Part 1 LEVEL 1 TIER 1 XP 300
Part 2 LEVEL 2 TIER 1 XP 600
Part 3 LEVEL 3 TIER 1 XP 1,800
Part 4 LEVEL 4 TIER 1 XP 3,800
Someone double check my math. And Thanks for printer friendly version. I should be dming this soon.

The module states a level 1 pc should level up to level 5 at the end of the adventure. The xp is the amount you need to go up to the next level.
Level 1 0-299, level 2 is 300-899 etc.

Any plan for part 2? I've got a demon wandering the jungles of Chult, I could homebrew him, but I'm curios on what was the creator's intent.

The Mutated enemies in Eelstead can reduce a PC's maximum hit points. The Death Curse blocks characters from ever regaining these lost hit points until it's stopped. It seems really harsh for 3rd level characters. Is this interaction intentional?

Shawn, my DM has a question about your intent for the playable Gecko subrace option for Lizardfolk.

Was your intention for the Gecko to have 30 swim speed, and 35 walk speed?

Or was your intention for the Gecko to have no swim speed, and 35 walk speed?

I read it as having a swim speed but my DM think you meant to have it without swim speed.

Thanks!

I got a reply from Shawn on Twitter:

As I suspected all Lizardfolk subraces have a swim speed. Thanks Shawn!

I enjoyed this product - another fine offering from this author! It's taking some chances and going places we haven't before as a player base, and I liked that.

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.
