Luminaries: Elseworlds
Once upon a time, a group of superheroes, calling themselves the Luminaries, saved the world. They stopped Murphy, defeated the Rooks, rescued the kids, and moved to an island paradise. But that wasn’t the end of it. That was never the end of it.

Return of Evil
Jack the Ripper and Dracula have been defeated and their evil Cabal has been crushed, with only fragments remaining at large to continue their reign of terror. The Rippers, a group dedicated to fighting monsters and keeping the world safe, are victorious and have now settled down to finish eradicating the remaining evil from the face of the Earth! As the newest recruits to the London lodge you will start with a simple task of tracking down a missing professor. But is this part of something else, is there a larger evil afoot?

Tyranny of Dragons (Season 5)
All of Faerûn is in danger. The Cult of the Dragon, more organised and focussed than ever before, has bent enormous resources towards a singular goal: Summoning Tiamat, the Queen of Dragons, into the world. The only thorn in their side is a brave band of adventurers known as the Knights of the Floating Wizard. And what does one do with thorns? That’s right, one rips them out and discards them.

Thus, the cult’s resources are focussed on retaliation. They have attacked allies of the Knights, stolen their possessions, even, it seems, interfered with party cohesion. Traps and betrayal are everywhere, and though our heroes have risen high, they must now decide whom they can trust, and how they can prepare for the coming battle. For one thing is certain: Unless they can disrupt the cult’s plans, and soon, Tiamat is coming.

Storm King’s Thunder – Revenge of the Giants
Ages ago, giants and dragons wages wars across the Savage Frontier. These battles are long forgotten by the human civilizations of today, but ancient relics remain. And now, the land shudders once more with each thunder of giant footsteps.

A seemingly innocent visit to Nightstone led a band of adventurer’s to Tribore and the rest of the Savage Frontier and explain the missing coins, fresh corpses and empty kegs of ale left in their wake. However, their exploits will soon lead them to those with an even larger appetite for these than themselves……

The Shackles of Loyalty
Well, this was unexpected… who knew a trip to the library and a quick confession could have this kind of impact?  Now you’re in a group of strangers, working for next to nothing for a job you’ve got no inclination of being here for at the end of – still, with luck, bravery, the help of your team and several handfuls of cards you’ll make it out of here – probably…

Crystal Seas – Torindor (Part 2)
At the frontiers of the Imperial provinces lies the vast, mountainous realm of Torindor, an almost impassable series of sharp peaked mountains and craggy woodland that serves as the southern most border of the Empire.

At the forest’s heart lies the ancient city of Telanarath. Abandoned eons ago due to circumstances unknown, the crumbling city lies overwhelmed by the twisting roots of unchecked wild growth and towering crystal formations from the encroaching sea.

The nearby magocracy of Highgate, independent city-state and college of all things magical, has set itself the task of resettlement within Torindor. Scores of labourers, soldiers, scholars and adventurers have descended upon the ruins of the old city, to clear the land, recolonise the city and unearth whatever secrets it may contain.

But true archaeology may have to wait. The world has descended into winter and a fine, frosty mist has descended over the craggy landscape, leading all those who wander within astray. The ever present crystal monoliths now ebb with ancient, wild energies, drawing new threats towards this world’s boundaries, whilst those from those beyond wait patiently for their moment.

Students of Strange
Over the years, Dr. Stephen strange has taken on many magically talented students and disciples. Like him they believe in protecting the earth from the myriad mystical forces that seek to harm or abuse the earth and it’s humans.

Dr. Strange has cast a magical beacon asking all his past students to return to the sanctum santorum. The Doctor does not often bother his students but it must be important if he is calling them all back at once. What mysteries await the students of strange.

The Curse of Strahd
Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as he turns his gaze down toward the village of Barovia. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind fills the midnight air. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner — and you are invited.
