EB-04 The Third Protocol


The Oracle of War has been recovered from the Mournland. Its creators respond by activating the third protocol, an instruction to recover the device and eliminate all who know of its existence. As night falls, a posse of assassins step off the lightning rail with orders to raze Salvation to the ground and retrieve the Oracle. This Tier 1 adventure is optimized for APL 4, and is the final adventure in the four-part Spoils of War storyline.

Welcome to the Oracle of War campaign, a new 20-part standalone story for the D&D Adventurers League! You can play this adventure as part of your own Eberron: Rising from the Last War campaign, or as part of the Oracle of War organized play campaign. While this campaign runs under the umbrella of the Adventurers League, it utilizes different rules. You can familiarize yourself with these unique campaign rules by checking out the Oracle of War Player's Guide and Oracle of War DM's Guide, found in the D&D Adventurers League Players Pack.

So...just curious, whatever happened to the magical electricity spear that Sheriff was listed as having? Seems like a bit of an oversight that the players would be unable to loot that as one of the bonus rewards on the AR.

Valid. This was an oversight. I guess you could say it was empowered somehow by Sheriff's lifeforce and loses that power when Sheriff dies.

Don't know where to put this:
Is there a RELEASE DATE for storyline aka campaign arc two Fortunes of War, so for DDAL-EB-05 A Century of Ashes etc.?

Will D said on Mar 10:
"Core modules due for release on the first Tuesday of every month."

Does this mean we expect CoA in May?

Yes it does.
I found the answer to this question over at the Iron Titan (EB-EP-01):

Good morning, Ian,
Glad you're enjoying our team's hard work. The release date for EB-05 is Tuesday, 5th May 2020. It's the third question at the bottom of this article:
Safe travels,

Could you provide some valid foreshadowing for the Century of Ashes, pretty please?
Just some info to hype the players up for the next story arc. As it is, it feels kinda bland to just leave them over the dead Saal, and I dont want to just improvise something that might not come into play later.
Thanks in advance!

When is the next adventure coming out? It says TBA but does that mean it's just not updated and it's April or ???

The stat block for Saal Dreadstroke looks messed up... it seems to have the actions from a Warforged Soldier.

Thanks, Alan! We're working on fixing this now. Until then, the print-friendly version has the correct text.

Now fixed! Grab v2 and you should be all good.

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.
