Quests From The Infinite Staircase

D&D 5E Quests From The Infinite Staircase

Setting hopping is a theme here
The Infinite Staircase is specifically a planar travel device. There wouldn't be much point if the adventures could easily narratively fit into a single setting like Yawning Portal and GoS.

The reason some old adventures hadn't been done before is because they were too strongly tied to setting lore - insufficiently generic.

The key art from the press release does suggest that there will be something from Eberron, sure.

Worth noting thst this book was announced after a panel from WotC top developers going over the history of Adventures and calling out some specific significant examples from D&D history

Adventures name checked that are not currently published in 5E are, including the S modules thst appear to be in this anthology:

  • The Sunken Shadow (Dungeon)
  • House of Cards (Dungeon)
  • T1 The Village of Hommlet
  • the DL series from Dragonlance
  • Red Hand of Doom
  • City of the Spider Queen
  • S4 Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth
  • Shadows of the Last War (Eberron)
  • S3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks
  • Gates of Firestorm Peak
The Desert of Desolation modules are contenders I think.
 





I doubt this really has much to do with Tales from the Infinite Staircase beyond it's similar name. But Tales had a threat, called the Iron Shadow in the Background that sort of connected each adventure in that book. In Tales of the Infinite Staircase, I speculated before with the Iron Shadow as a malevolent force of Law that drained creativity from wherever it touched, it was a creation of the Wind Dukes of Aqaa that created the Rod of Seven Parts, and that the Wind Dukes had malevolent intentions as they aren't exactly "good".

I don't think that Quests from the Infinite Staircase will have such a thing, even if there's another adventure coming out this year that involves the Rod of Seven Parts.

Here's what I'd like to see:

1. I3: Pharaoh (including the others is probably a stretch)
2. C2: The Ghost Tower of Inverness
3. S4: The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth (along with The Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun)
4. D1-3/Q1: Descent in the Depths of the Earth/Tua-Koa/Vault of the Drow/Queen of the Demonweb Pits.
5. I1: Dwellers of the Forbidden City
6. The Whispering Cairn

These would also provide a good spread of challenges for PCs from 1st-13th or so.
