Return of the Warlock


Return of the Warlock is designed for 4-6 2nd-3rd level PCs and non-evil alignment. It takes place in the Forgotten Realms, in the Dessarin Vale, as described in The Storm King’s Thunder and Princes of the Apocalypse. The module can be run using any setting where you’d find a small village and woodland mountains nearby. All encounters can easily be modified to fit either a larger or a smaller party.

When an old nemesis of the retired adventuring party Banner of the Scales returns from the dead and kidnaps the child of one the party’s members, the member, Garmund, cleric of Kelemvor, turns to the PCs and asks them to help him get the boy back. Their mission will take them south along the Long Road, where they will encounter starved goblins, shadows, wights and see darkness grow over Kryptgarden forest.

Playing through the module takes about 4-6 hours. The story will challenge both players and characters alike and offers many opportunities for roleplaying.

The module relies on Triboar's description found in the Storm King's Thunder and Red Larch's description found in the Princes of the Apocalypse. Having access to these module is highly recommended, but not necessary.

But wait, there's more!

Return of the Warlock also has 2 new monsters, 1 new magical item and a new druid circle, created by the members of the Yawning Portal crew.

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.
