Necromancer of Zhentil Keep

Selected Option:
Softcover, Premium Color Book
Hardcover, Premium Color Book
PDF + Softcover, Premium Color Book
PDF + Hardcover, Premium Color Book

Zhentil Keep has lain dormant for decades, the destruction wrought upon it enough to keep even the bravest and most foolhardy away. But rumors and plots are stirring up things better left alone in the skeleton of the city, and the dead may not lay still for much longer.

East from the Keep, the city of Phlan celebrates Reclamation Day, honoring those lost in the fight to take back their home from a dragon who would be its overlord. Citizens, tourists, and adventurers alike take part in the festivities, and all are caught up when dark forces strike in the heart of the city.

As the past and the dead begin to stir, brave souls are pulled into a conflict that will decide the fate of not only Zhentil Keep and Phlan, but the Moonsea and beyond!

Originally published as three separate modules, the Necromancer of Zhentil Keep series appears here as a single adventure, including some new options for encounters within Zhentil Spire.
Those modules were:
ROZK01-01 Binder's Torment
ROZK01-02 Zhentarim's Lament
ROZK01-03 Necromancer's Ascent

This print-on-demand version is designed similarly to WotC adventures, and can be used for Adventurers League play, or outside of AL.  Guidance for the updated AL rules is included!

A Dungeons & Dragons adventure for characters of 11th-16th level.

An errata file was added on 12/31/19. This fixes a couple of typos that people caught, as well as including the stat block for Doran Parzifel. There are two versions, one with the book's page background, and one printer friendly version. Thanks to everyone for catching those tidbits and letting me know! :D

The stat block for Doran Parzifel appears to be missing.

**face palm followed by a head desk** Yah, he sure is! I will be releasing an errata sheet for the book soon, and will be sure to add Doran's stats! Thanks for the heads up... **puts on cone of shame**
I will reply again to your post when the errata is up, since DMs Guild doesn't send out an email when things are updated...that way, you should get a notification of your comment having a reply! :D

Hello! Great module! There is a typo in the Phlan Background Relcamation Day instead of Reclamation Day.

Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one
target. Hit: 7 (1d6 - 4) piercing damage.

That 1d6-4 almost killed our DM.

LOL Maybe the shortsword is dull? ;) What creature was that on?

I know i'm a few years late but i'm looking for something to run for my party as they exit Curse of Strahd and this looks perfect. I have two questions if anyone is still monitoring this.

Can you verify this is 5e?

Do you have Fantasy Grounds module files for these 3 adventurers?

thanks for taking the time

Hello! It is indeed for 5E. Unfortunately, I do not have a FG conversion for it. :(

Please list the original adventure names and codes! It makes it much easier to keep track of things!

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.
