Wrath of the Immortals Adventures

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

Adventures in Mystara

Adventures in Mystara: Here are the posts about the set adventures I have run in Mystara and how they have turned out. The core of this campaign is the Wrath of the Immortals storyline.

Wrath of the Immortals: The underlying campaign for the setting, with many side quests that characters could access.

Part 1 – Introduction (Tier 1)

5th Edition (1-4) BECMI (1-3) – Basic Adventures – My Campaign sets these for levels 1-5 (year AC 1000 to AC 1004)

Characters in their tier are still learning the range of class features that define them, including their choice of specialization. But even 1st-level characters are heroes, set apart from the common people by natural characteristics, learned skills, and the hint of a greater destiny that lies before them.

At the start of their careers, characters use 1st and 2nd level spells and wield mundane gear. The magic items they find include common consumable items (potions and scrolls) and a very few uncommon permanent items. Their magic can have a big impact in a single encounter, but it doesn’t change the course of an adventure.

The fate of a village might hang on the success or failure of low-level adventurers, who trust their lives to their fledgling abilities. These characters navigate dangerous terrain and explore haunted crypts, where they can expect to fight savage orcs, ferocious wolves, giant spiders, evil cultists, bloodthirsty ghouls, and hired thugs. If they face even a young dragon, they’re better off avoiding a fight.

Introduction to the setting and the campaign ending with meeting Rheddrian and signing on to his Investigation Bureau. (Tier 1 – Level 1-5)

Part 2 – Investigation (Tier 2)

5th Edition (5-10) BECMI (4-14) – Expert Adventures – My Campaign sets these for levels 6-10 (year AC 1005 to AC 1009)

By the time they reach this tier, adventurers have mastered the basics of their class features, though they continue to improve throughout these levels. They have found their place in the world and have begun to involve themselves in the dangers that surrounded them.

Dedicated spellcasters learn 3rd-level spells as the start of their tier. Suddenly characters can fly, damage large numbers of foes with fireball and lightning bolt spells, and even breathe underwater. They master 5th-level spells by the end of the tier, and spells such as teleportation circle, scrying, flame strike, legend lore, and raise dead can have a significant impact on their adventures. They start acquiring more permanent magic items (uncommon and rare ones) as well, which will serve them for the rest of their careers.

The fate of a region might depend on the adventures that characters of levels 5 to 10 undertake. These adventurers venture into fearsome wilds and ancient ruins, where they confront savage giants, ferocious hydras, fearless golems, evil yuan-ti, scheming devils, bloodthirsty demons, crafty mind flayers, and drow assassins. They might have a chance of defeating a young dragon that has established a lair but not yet extended its reach far into the surrounding territory.

These are the investigative pieces the characters are looking into. (Tier 2 – Level 6-10)

Part 3 – The Great Wars (Tier 3)

5th Edition (11-16) BECMI (11-25) – Companion Adventures – My Campaign sets these for levels 11-15 (year AC 1010 to AC 1014)

By 11th level, characters are shining examples of courage and determination – true paragons in the world, set well apart from the masses. At this tier, adventurers are far more versatile than they were at lower levels, and they can usually find the right tool for a given challenge.

Dedicated spellcasters gain access to 6th level spells at 11th level, including spells that completely change the way adventurers interact with the world. Their big, flashy spells are significant in combat – disintegrate, blade barrier, and heal, for example – but behind the scene spells such as word of recall, find the path, contingency, teleport, and true seeing alter the way players approach their adventures. Each spell level after that point introduces new effects with an equally large impact. The adventurers find rare magic items (and very rare ones) that bestow similarly powerful abilities.

The fate of a nation or even the world depends on momentous quests that such characters undertake. Adventurers explore uncharted regions and delve into long forgotten dungeons, where they confront terrible masterminds of the lower planes, cunning rakshasas and beholders, and hungry purple worms. They might encounter and even defeat a powerful adult dragon that has established a lair and a significant presence in the world.

At this tier, adventurers make their mark on the world in a variety of ways, from the consequences of their adventures to the manner in which they spend their hard-won treasure and exploit their well-deserved reputations. Characters of this level construct fortresses on land deeded them by local rulers. They found guilds, temples, or martial orders. They broker peace between nations or lead them into war. And their formidable reputations attract the attention of very powerful foes.

5th Edition (17-20) BECMI (25-36) – Master Adventures – My Campaign sets these for levels 16-20 (year AC 1015 to AC 1019)

By 17th level, characters have super heroic capabilities, and their deeds and adventures are the stuff of legend. Ordinary people can hardly dream of such heights of power – or such terrible dangers.

Dedicated spellcasters at this tier wield earthshaking 9th level spells such as wish, gate, storm of vengeance, and astral projection. Characters have several rare and very rare magic items at their disposal, and begin discovering legendary items such as a vorpal sword or a staff of the magi.

Adventuring at these levels have far-reaching consequences, possibly determining the fate of millions in the Material Plane and even places beyond. Characters traverse otherworldly realms and explore demi planes and other extraplanar locales, where they fight savage balor demons, and even avatars of the gods themselves. The dragons they encounter are wyrms of tremendous power, whose sleep troubles kingdoms and whose waking threatens existence itself.
