This is the final of 5 missions in the first Tomb of Annihilation module from the Adventurers League. You can play this in game stores and I think it will be available at the DMs Guild soon.
If the group went through the previous four missions, they can now assemble the Dreamer's Amulet. It doesn't have much power unless a yuan-ti wields it, although it does give people within 10 feet feelings of uneasiness.
The heroes will meet the Ytepka Society, protector of Port Nyanzaru.
We go to the Red Bazaar, which is near the Colosseum. There's an inn known as Kaya's House of Repose, which has been mentioned on a number of shows. It is "opulent".
At last we meet Soggy Wren. Here's his deal:
- He drinks a lot and goes on "party tours", where he bounces from bar to bar.
- "Soggy Wren is friendly almost to the point of being rude about it."
- He can look at someone and tell what they prefer to drink.
- Has no patience for evil people.
Things go wonky and the group ends up battling zealots linked to the yuan-ti and fighting above a snake pit! There's just one snake in it, but still.
The heroes find some prisoners who are suffering from a sickness... they are "bearing dark thick veins and scaled patches all over their bodies." Turning into yuan-ti!
We get a look at flowers known as "Olarubu" (Vile Beauty). They let out spores that can poison you.
The final battle involve a yuan-ti and "broodlings", which are people turning into yuan-ti.
A decent adventure. I like almost all of the traps and gimmicks in each of these missions. A lot of thought went into them, and it makes most of the encounters feel special rather than filler.
I kind of wish the Dreamer's Amulet had some kind of power. All that work to put an item together, and the heroes can't do anything with it? I'd probably change that.
This thing does a good job of showing off the various locales in Port Nyanzaru. Malar's Throat and Old City are really awesome locations, and I really like Kwayothé the merchant prince.
Tomorrow, we'll look at the adventure for characters levels 5-10 called Over the Edge. Skimming the first mission, I see that it has a "chamber of hair". Should be fun!
