Cruel Summer: An expansion for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist



Cruel Summer is an extension to Waterdeep:Dragon Heist which continues the Summer story arc and the tale of the Cassalanters, with lots of emphasis on mystery solving, investigation and intrigue.

After the Cassalanter's Founders' Day celebration ends in death and destruction, their twin children are found to be missing! Waterdeep is in an uproar, the Cassalanters aren't talking and it falls to the party to solve the mystery of the childrens disappearance. Could it be connected to the sinister new faction taking root in the city? Who is the stranger whose corpse was left behind in the twins' bedroom? Is there a link to the surprisingly vicious Noble Council of Soapmakers?

  • Fully illustrated and professionally edited
  • Designed for a 5th level party, but easily adapted
  • 2 new factions and 5 new NPCs
  • 4 new fully-keyed and mapped locations
  • Links to elements of the Spring, Fall and Winter arcs
  • Gives the party a shot at saving the Cassalanter twins

This looks great! Can it work okay even if you're already towards the later half of the adventure? My PCs are just getting the Stone and getting ready to seek out the 3 keys. I've been trying to figure out a way to save the kids and this looks like just the ticket!

you beat me to it Sid! Yes, it will work fine towards the latter half on the adventure- technically it could even work after the party has gotten their hands on the gold, but it's better if you can drop some hints about the additional factions ahead of time. Thanks, and enjoy!

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.
