EB-12 The Waiting Game



Narcy of Xandrar offers safe haven in the towers of Arcanix, but even she can't foresee the coming storm. Across the centuries, dead hands move their puppets in a grand conspiracy to control the Draconic Prophecy. They predicted the Oracle of War's creation, and now their agents lie in wait for the day they can seize it for themselves. That day is today. Optimized for APL 12, this is the second in a trilogy of adventures, the Drums 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.

This adventure references the Mournland Dossier legacy event and item as being decoded, but I believe it means the Oracle Dossier. The former was given to Sky Blue and no longer in the party's possession, while the latter was sent back to the party by Sky Blue after her betrayal.

Please forgive my ignorance but I think I might have maybe missed something, if the party departs from Korth heading towards Flamekeep, why would they divert to Arcanix? It's far more west then simply arriving at flamekeep would be? I only ask because this is the sort of thing that my party would pick apart and I have no answer to give them, any help would be appreciated.

Hi Alex, the idea here is that navigating around the storm blows the airship many miles offcourse. We're going to make this clearer in the next update.

I don't believe that this has been fixed yet. It is quite a big plot hole, as they would have to be blown more than 150 miles just to enter Aundair (assuming flight from Korth-Thronehold-Flamekeep), and then some 100+ miles more to Arcanix. I love the whole series so far, but sometimes I have to tell my group that things happen because they just happen... the narrative demands it. They are okay with it though :)
I also wonder: Where is the oracle supposed to be during the dinner? If it is with the characters, why not take it? If it is not with them - why not simply search their quarters?

I came here to find out what the hell is up with this navigation. Korth is 200 miles from Flamekeep. Arcanix is literally 500 miles beyond that. I know we are talking about a fantasy setting, but so much of these adventures seem arbitrary and dumb. My players had the fluxcapasitors, (or whatever they are called) banished within the first two rounds of falling. And they had rescued the 8 crewmen by round 6. (I improvised a number, afaict we are never told how many people are on board) Dodging debris for the next 19 (!) rounds was incredibly tedious so we only played out a couple more. Carting the oracle around has become such a chore and uninteresting to deal with that we have "yadda yadda yadda"ed it constantly. No helpful mechanic suggestions for making it easy to figure out, it's essentially treated like an anchor. Any adventurer in their right mind would have walked away from this pain in the butt box ages ago. We even forgot all about it during the airship crash. I figure it doesn't matter anyway,...See more

Has there been any changes with this? Just read through the module and it looks like there are no changes to it. The group departs from Korth where the twelve are and are headed towards Flamekeep. Arcanix is a lot further away.

Hm... My PCs have already technically crashed an airship in a salvage mission, so after this...they will not exactly have the best track record with Lyrandar XD

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.
