The New D&D Adventure Is - Tomb of Annihilation!

Tomb of Annihilation is in the Forgotten Realms set in the Lost Continent of Chult - Away from the Sword Coast (the hosts of the live stream are very interested with undead dinosaurs). Acererak is, as many predicted, the source of this plotline as the Archlich is more or less "eating" resurrection magic from the rest of the Forgotten Realms and causing a zombie apocalypse. Pendleton Ward from Adventure Time is a creative consultant on this adventure.



More updates will be coming through the Dungeons & Dragons marathon live stream live on Twitch throughout the weekend.

Hi, I'm a Mindflayer, but don't let that worry you
Tomb of Annihilation, set in Chult and featuring Acererak.

Called it. :)

It is Chult. "Lost continent"
Undead, and dinosaurs. And undead dinosaurs.

Yup, it is Acererak. Described now as a "lich". The "strongest lich".
Oh, and the hook of people ressurected are now wasting away.

So, yup, pretty much all we guessed here over the last couple months...

So it's two days - twenty-four hours - mostly of live streamed games. They're not playing the adventure per se, but homebrew module being inspired by the adventure.

Sept 8 and the 19th release.

"Indiana Jones meets zombies" was the pitch.

So, they're looting both Isle of Dread and Tomb of Horrors? Cool:

They should call it: The Lost Island Tomb of Dreadful Horrors. By the time LITDH made it out of anyone's mouth, it'd sound like "Hey, we're gonna play LICH, tonight."

That's a good description.

So the map of the island has the coast filled in and the players have to adventure in and fill in the rest of the map.

So it *does* have a small connection to Isle of Dread! One point for me! LOL!

Kinda...

Zombies and undead are *really* being played up. And Acererak has a very different a hook, a plan beyond sitting in a tomb trolling adventurers.

So far, it sounds like Storm King's Thunder, it will be a gazetteer as well as a storyline. A big guide to Chult... plus adventure.

According to Mearls the book will be like a Gazetteer of Chult with an adventure on top. This is an interesting approach!
