The Heir of Orcus

The Heir of Orcus Strikes Back!

Ios, the Overseer of Duerradin, a highly advanced duergar psionic research outpost, invites you to discuss the recent activity of the Heir of Orcus and her worshipers, the Cult of the Heir. Explore Duerradin for clues leading to nefarious plots carried out by the Cult of the Heir, discover alien technologies found nowhere else in the Forgotten Realms, and learn the dark history surrounding the rise of Duerradin before the Heir of Orcus strikes!

From the Author:

The Heir of Orcus: Verse III is my most ambitious project to date. I wanted to create a cyberpunk type city in Faerun using existing lore from the Forgotten Realms. I think the adventure succeeds in both creating a unique experience for players and Dungeon Masters who visit Duerradin and explore all its secrets. I've also tried out some new narrative mechanics I think help adventure designs incorporate more action without the "time" requirement that comes with combat. Please check out the free preview, I've included a bulk of the beautiful art in there. This project would not be what it is without the help and work of many others, this is a true team effort and for that, I thank all those involved. I hope you enjoy The Heir of Orcus: Verse III

Is this module intended to be Adventurer's League Legal? I had a blast playing in this and would love to continue the story as part of Adventure League.

I know I can still play in it if it isn't AL legal. Just really like seeing strong stories like this as part of the offerings. :D

It does not appear in the CCC listings of Content Catalog v9.02. Am I missing something?

The AL CCC is no longer maintained. The AL section of DMSGUILD now fills that function. If it’s here, it’s AL legal. Per a AL Admin FB posting.

Awesome adventure series so far mate, thanks for all the hard work you put into this polished product. By the way, how many verses can we expect from the Hier of Orcus series?

Thanks for the kind words. Verse IV comes out in February, and in my head, I had planned for at least 5-6 Verses in total. Not 100% sure when Verse V or IV will premier as I have a lot to consider if I want to make those.

Ax is referenced as being a Drow Shadowblade but I can't see any stat block with this name.

The page for Reclamation Station has the same "Playing the pillars" as the previous page for Duerra Alley

The color version of the module is missing pages 17, 19, 20. I wish you had a Ios Battle Map that could be used for VTT (Roll20)

James, I think you might be not be opening the full PDF. I just checked and all the pages are there. Also you can use the Ios Battle Map in Roll20, you just need to take the grid off and make the Page 23 x 11, with Page Scale 70 Pixels = 8 feet.

That will make the battle map fit perfectly on Roll20.

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.
