Dragon Season - a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist DM's Resource


Dragon Season - a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist DM's Resource

Chapter 4: Dragon Season is the grand finale to Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. A frantic hunt for the Stone of Golorr through the streets of Waterdeep that culminates with the heroes delving into the Vault of Dragons. It's where the characters go from hopeful adventurers to legends of Waterdeep – or end up dead and forgotten in a locked vault.

There's a lot of ground to cover in Chapter 4. Both for the characters, but also for you, the DM. You have to orchestrate and manage a chain of encounters, make the party's delve into the vault entertaining, try to ensure that you end up with a challenging and satisfying resolution to the campaign, while also making room for all the other great content of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist.

The goal of this document is to give you resources that'll help you handle the final stretch of the campaign, creating a fun and manageable experience for you and your players. This product includes:

  • Choosing a Villain – a quick look at each villain and what each of them can bring to your campaign, as well as advice on how to switch your villain for another, if you've already picked one.
  • Encounter Chains – a closer look at each of the four encounter chains, evaluating each chain and giving suggestions on how to improve or enhance individual encounters. You'll also find advice on how to change your season and putting together your own encounter chain.
  • Time for Downtime – a description of the different ways you can create time for downtime before, during or after the encounter chains in Chapter 4, enabling your players to finish up faction missions, tend to their tavern or carouse around Waterdeep, as they look for the treasure.
  • The Vault of Dragons – a deep delve into the Vault of Dragons, including suggestions on how to improve or change certain areas of the vault, as well as dealing with the dragon. You'll also find advice on how to handle the party's showdown with the villain's forces at the end of the chapter.
  • Chase Cheat Sheets – two cheat sheets complete with the rules for conducting both street and rooftop chases, both including a table for complications and a tracker for initiative and distance.

All of these supplements for Waterdeep DH are amazing! Specially loving the "DM notes" in the back of some of them. Any chance that you are going to continue with this for Dungeon of the mad mage?

You should re-release all of these as a bundle when you are done. Amazing stuff man, my game has been running so well because of your simple, yet effective supplements.

Hey Clinton

That's high praise. It makes me more happy than I think you know hearing that the products have had a positive impact on your game. That's what it's all about!

Good idea with the bundle, we're considering something along those lines :)

I love this series and I plan to use them all in our campaign, it really brings the entire story to life!

Two questions:
- I just purchased Dragon Season, but it has no printer friendly version. Is that correct?
- Are you planning to make maps (available on your Wordpress blog) for all maps found in the campaign book?

Kind regards and keep up the good work!

Hi Wim

Thank you so much, I'm really happy to hear that :).

I just updated the printer friendly version to fix an error, it seems like it didn't get uploaded correctly. Not quite sure what's going on. I have reuploaded it and it should be included now - thanks for letting us know :)

We're planning on making more maps over the next days and weeks. I'd love to promise that we'll do all of them, but since we can't include them in the products, making the maps (which is very time-consuming) often takes a backseat to stuff that we can actually sell. But yes, as many as we can get to!

Thanks again - and I hope you enjoy the product :)

just bought and downloaded your great Resource. In the Printer friendly Version is an error on the first page. There is an cut second page on the left and the paragraph about Jarlaxle is two times on the page.

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.
