Dark Awakening


In a secluded kingdom the undead rise from the muck of the mire, threatening to overwhelm the common folk that live there. The ancient crown of kings once called their ancestors to aide the kingdom in times of trouble, but now it seems that its magic has been corrupted by a servant of Tiamat.

The cult has stretched its tentacles into the kingdom, searching for wealth and power. While a centuries old necromancer of the cult attempts a ritual to raise an undead dragon, his half-dragon partner is secretly trying to subvert the ritual's power for his own use.

The actions of a small band of adventurers will have momentous consequences for the Cult of Tiamat and their future plans.

~This adventure is part 2 in the Wrath of the God-Dragons campaign, after Exodus of the Underdark. It can easily be used as a one-shot adventure, however, and is designed to be used as a supplement to the official Horde of the Dragon Queen campaign, if desired. Be on the lookout for the third adventure in series coming in summer of 2021.~

  • Can be used as an alternate story or supplemental for the Tyranny of Dragons adventure line, which begins with Horde of the Dragon Queen.

  • Recommended for 5th - 6th level characters. Includes monster files for easy customization with the stat-block generator.

  • Optional "Hard Mode" for most encounters to provide players with a challenge when needed.

  • Easy to read with segmented and color coded frames for Story, DM notes, Encounter, and Treasure sections.

  • Part 2 in Wrath of the God-Dragons campaign, setting the stage for a major confrontation at the lair of the Cult of Tiamat (coming in part 3).

  • When taking on the half-dragons, fight fire with fire by using my Elemental Mastery supplement that provides new subclasses for wizards, sorcerers, and druids.

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.
