DMs Guild Azarneth - Secrets of the Crystal Grotto [5e adventure module]


Hey everyone,
I'm Jacopo, also known as Azarneth, 'Il Tessitore di Storie' in the realms of Faerûn. This marks my inaugural post on this fantastic platform, and I wanted to extend my gratitude to the moderators for providing this space for all us publishers. This is one of my first releases, and I hold it dear to my heart as it brought me back to the Dungeon Master's chair after 15 years. My players loved it, and I hope it brings you all some fantastic and emotionally charged gaming sessions too. If you have any questions or need clarification, feel free to reach out anytime.

With swords drawn and courage in your hearts, an epic journey beyond imagination awaits. ― Azarneth
