This book is the work of the D&D Adventurers League Administrators who wanted to dedicate something special to our fans on the anniversary of the original, longest running gaming convention in the world.

Happy 50th birthday Gen Con!

In this book you will find updates to Hillsfar and Myth Drannor that represent the choices of D&D Adventurers League players all over the world. We’ve taken the actions of your players, updated the world of Forgotten Realms, and given you six more D&D Adventurers League adventures that you can run for your players where they can explore the Cormanthor Forest and the Ruins of Myth Drannor.

Lost Tales of Myth Drannor includes the following adventures:

  • The Darkwood Webs, tier 1; DDAL00-02a
  • The Weirding Vats, tier 1; DDAL00-02b
  • Spawn of the Maimed Virulence, tier 2; DDAL00-02c
  • Echos of the Weeping War, tier 2; DDAL00-02d
  • Forgotten Foes, tier 3; DDAL00-02e
  • The Definition of Heroism, tier 4; DDAL00-02f

Similar to the Dungeons & Dragons hardcocver adventures, you will need a copy of the Monster Manual and Volo's Guide to Monsters to use this content.

NOTE: this copy includes minor editing updates over the published version that was handed out between Gen Con 2017 and Origins 2018.

Chapter 7 of Lost Tales of Myth Drannon: Echoes of the Weeping War

In this Chapter, the pcs hunt for a missing sage and must rescue him from a force field inside a fiend filled fortress in the forest.

The pcs can decided on land, sea or air and the monsters they encounter vary on which path they choose. My group chose sea and encountered a hydra and its two younglings.

I rolled low on initiative. Their Tier 2 party handled the hydra and younglings easily.

After a brief sea voyage, they arrived in the forest. I could have used a bit more background on the fortress ruins and the surrounding area. Who is the elf warrior depicted in the old oak carving? The author should have known PCs would ask about this and included a brief bio.

The most glaring omission is there no map for the entrance to the fortress. You just say the pcs go in then start the next encounter.

I was a bit confused the encounter. The pcs...See more

So, I purchased this in pdf, then had to get it refunded to purchase it with POD and PDF (needed to in order to get the discount). I would pay again for a Fantasy Ground Mod. Any chance of getting this on Fantasy Grounds?

Will there be a premium heavyweight copy of this down the line? If yes, I am holding out for that. If not, I will purchase it now.

Should I expect my local brick and mortar store to stock these? Or should we just send everyone here in order to get them? The AL community is growing and supports 4 tables on Sunday and a few other week day tables.

Print on demand is a trade paperback (softcover) book that gets mailed to you directly

A Fantasy Grounds conversion would be awesome to see. I would make time available to working with all the authors on this project. Reach out to me: grimlore.entertainment(at)gmail(dot)com if you are interested.

That is correct, the free promo adventure the Admins paid for and distributed isn't tracked in any way by the DMsGuild, but hey, you got it for free! And profits from the sale of this version go towards the next book project the AL admins are doing, current referred to as Secret Project Cookie Bag, set for release for Origins, 2019.

Please note:
If you run this there is a missing monster stat block for a creature that isn't in the MM. It's missing from the chapter's Appendix as well:

This monster isn't included in the book, no. It's found in Volo's - we decided to only include stat blocks that were unique to the adventure.

What about the Medusas that got true polymorphed into iron Golems? The description makes it sounds like they're a new kind of creature (Medusa abilities with Iron Golem Body). How am I supposed to run these?
Customer avatar
AL A July 20, 2018 11:36 pm UTC

As-written. If something removes the true polymorph effect, they become medusas of the same CR as the iron golems - be sure to increase hit points/dice, attacks, saves, etc as-needed.

Please can the description on this listing be updated to include an actual description of the product’s contents? I’ve heard a lot about this and I’m interested, but I want to know what it contains first. E.g. titles of each adventure and a one or two line blurb for each.

Right now the description seems to assume that you’re already familiar with the product which is... weird. It in fact addresses Adventurers League DMs directly. Wouldn’t they already own this? I’m not one. Am I not allowed to buy?

A little... The description of this product still seems to assume that it needs no introduction, and very AL-specific. Which just feels a little gatekeepy to me. I’m sure that’s not intentional, but I rushed to this page excited for what I’d find, and feel a little bit left out.

Leaving a review for what I've run so far
Chapter 4: The Darkwood Webs
This was a fun mod to run and I set it during the winter yule season flavoring the Dryad's tree as an evergreen tree and the sprite homes as multicolored hallow orbs. Some of the possible encounters are far more intriguing than others. The gnoll encounter is by far my favorite but could possibly be a tad deadly for character.


Chapter 8: Forgotten Foes
We'll start with my favorites:
(The party I ran this with were nothing but casters of various kinds)
The special totally-not-an-ooze encounter at the beginning is a fantastic "new" monster to throw a bunch of tier 3's casters on their head.
When I ran the library section "ANOTHER book" became a running trope in the party because of the constant counterspells. They all loved finding their own spells in the books.

Now for my least favorite:
The encounter at the end just didn't have the XXX needed for...See more

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.
