The first of a new series of articles providing encounters ideas DMs can use to add flavor to their campaigns.
The final primary supplement for Secrets of the Dead Lands, Faces of the Dead Lands, has been released! It is the largest and most extensive book of NPCs ever produced by Athas.org.
Faces of the Dead Lands is far more than just a collection of NPCs and their stats. Within these pages you will find the first-hand accounts of this devastated land and the lush lands that came before it, as experienced through the eyes of the ancient undead who were there. The stories within each NPC description not only paint clear pictures of the motivations and experiences of these characters, but they also build upon existing canon for both the Dead Lands and the other ancient stories from the rest of Athas, granting a much clearer picture of what it was really like to experience the early days of the Cleansing Wars and the terrible Obsidian Tide.
Ever since finishing Secrets of the Dead Lands and The Emissary, The Pristine Tower Development Group have been hard at work building adventures for the upcoming Adventures in the Dead Lands supplement, due to be released later this year. But first, the adventures for this upcoming book need playtesting.
This is where you, our dear Athas.org community, come in.
We will be releasing the adventures for playtesting as they are ready, announcing them here with open registration to download the beta releases to try on your adventuring parties. In exchange for your reviews and feedback, your ideas will be rolled into the adventures and you and your players will appear in the credits for the finished book!
