It's time to act like a real dragon! Unleash your breath weapon, fight with claw and fang in this 5th edition D&D Forgotten Realms adventure for evil dragon characters!

Iyrauroth

Year Of Rogue Dragons is set in 1373 DR during the Dracorage. It's designed for four players who take the roles of newly hatched evil chromatic dragons. The story will introduce a specific section of the Forgotten Realms along with its prominent individuals, organizations and a segment of its history. The adventure will draw the players into a conflict between three local factions, and a mystery, which they must solve and use to their advantage in order to eliminate every menace that threatens their life from the onset.

The 99-page module features 9 full-color dungeon maps, a complete map of Thar and the Northern Moonsea region, over a dozen full-page color illustrations and 21 unique NPC and monster stat blocks including old favorites like: 

- the Zhentarim Skymage

- the Dragonflesh Golem

- and the Wearer Of Purple and their Initiate Cult Wizards.

Chapter 1. introduces the players to the setting and the life of wyrmling dragons while experiencing the ongoing Dracorage. This chapter aims to introduce the life of dragons, the surrounding lands, and creatures inhabiting Thar through some seemingly random encounters. 

Chapter 2. has three subsections in which the motives and goals of each faction will be revealed as they each present three different quests to the players, which they might take, refuse, or use against them. Getting involved with these factions also lets the players collect every piece of information needed to lead them to a solution that rids them of their enemies, all in one single daring and grandiose final event.

Chapter 3. is the climax of the adventure where the players recover the key element that can save them from multiple threats. They will have several options to use it, depending on which factions they made their enemies and whom they want to eliminate.

How would you make it playable with good dragons? I think the story needs to be shifted a bit, but it could be achieavable. I mean, the half-red sphynx can be a half-gold, and you pcs wouldn't have to do the bidding of the cultists... actually they could get the paladin as an ally and work together on defeating the enemies? What do you think?

Thanks for the question! I had these thoughts while writing the main plot and the quests. I think it can be adapted to good dragons, but they must decieve or ally with evil factions in order to survive. It would be very naive to say that Iyrauroth would not kill them outright... He might enjoy torturing them the same way or you could come up with something that keeps him for slaughtering them initially... The possibilities are endless. Just keep the motivations realistic and it will work. Cheers!

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.
