The adventurers seek out a trusted sage of Morgrave University to help them unlock the mysteries of the Oracle of War, but their studies risk upsetting powerful forces. Morgrave is said to be a beacon of knowledge shining from the city’s tallest towers, yet the adventurers soon learn that it can also be a deep pit of corruption. A Four-Hour Adventure for Tier 2 Characters. Optimized for APL 5.

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.

Spoilers for the module here: (not sure how to hide them)
For many people, the 'date' scene in EB05 is problematic in many ways.
1) You basically stalk/spy on Kell's date to find out info about her
2) It is possible that Kell is a Professor and Jia is a Student (I don't think this is actually true, but it is implied at some points.
3) you listen in on the date and give Kell advice during the date via sending stones.

These are all standard rom-com tropes and 5 years ago, almost no one would have blinked an eye. However, now in 2020, it is no longer considered great comedy.

I have come up with a alteration that helps remove the creep factor but still fits with the adventure as intended (at least for me). A couple of others have used it as well and feed back has been very positive, so I thought i would share it here.

here is how I changed it up.
As Kell is examining the OoW, he's very into it. Even ignores/turns off a couple of alarms. In...See more

Something is a bit confusing for me. From "Meeting Zell Mar" it says "Zell Mar's office is in the library." The party is able to walk in there freely and meet Zell so they can access the library. From "Larath Hall Locations" there are "stairs that ascend from the library". That door is locked and the party needs the key from Zel (or otherwise enter). Also, it says "The dome of Lareth Hall crowns...the library".

Why would they need a key to get into something they were originally capable of just walking into?
The map for Lareth Hall appears to show the library yet there are stairs that come from the library.
Is Zell in area 5 or does he have an office?

I just printed it off and the first thing I noticed is that all pages are numbered 28 or have no page number?

So this is less of a question for this module specifically, and moreso for Tier 2 (and higher) Oracle of War play in general. Given that most enemies in T2 and onwards are resistant to nonmagical attacks, would it not make sense to give martial characters access to more potential magic weapon options. Forgotten Realms AL has the free +1 weapon (and other stuff) given at the start of Tier 2 now, so it seems ridiculous to handicap Oracle of War characters so excessively especially if they are going to Sharn where they could probably procure such weapons with ease.

Hey Paul! We won't be adopting the free +1 weapon rule. Rest assured, core modules in the tier 2 storyline will present the opportunity to earn magic weapons.

The adventure does include maps for all key locations - I presume you're referring to the separate battlemaps releases. We don't actually create those ourselves (nor do we commission them), so I have no idea when they'll arrive. Usually pretty quick though!

I believe an independent party creates the battlemaps for the Oracle of War modules, so really whenever they get to it.

Hey Will, you released this module in the middle of a global pandemic where nearly everyone is playing remote.

Why didn't you create and commission VTT maps?

Believe it or not, Gaeten, I did not have my own oracle on hand to forsee this pandemic when our budgets were assigned.

I made two battlemaps for the ruined temple and lareth hall that I posted on reddit. They are scaled for roll20. Here's a link: https://www.reddit.com/r/AdventurersLeague/comments/gw5c65/eb05_a_century_of_ashes_battlemaps/

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.
