Fifth Edition Dungeons and Dragons is kicking off with a huge investment for their Organized Play! Lots of free stuff and a fantastic adventure to get things going. I do have the five-head Tiamat miniature and I'm looking forward to bringing it to the table!
Okay, you will have a chance to prevent Tiamat from arising to threaten the world, but it's not going to be easy.
For years, the evil Cult of the Dragon has devoted itself to creating undead dragons in a vain attempt to fulfill an ancient prophecy. However, the cultists were misguided. They misunderstood. But now, under new leadership, the cult believes that the prophecy does not speak of undead dragons, but of a dragon empire that’s been extinct for 25,000 years. Tiamat, the queen of evil dragons, has languished in the Nine Hells for millennia. The cult believes that the time of her return is at hand.
So dire is this threat that five disparate factions have set aside their differences (at least temporarily), to present a united front. So, take up the cause of either the Harpers ("do-gooders"), Emerald Enclave ("hippies"), Lord's Alliance ("the man"), Order of the Gauntlet ("hammer-time"), Zhentarim ("evil curious"), or just be an independent agent for your own cause!
While you're at it, check out the video on this page. I'm sure this doesn't have any dire portend for an early end to your adventuring career. . .
Me, I'm much too smart and wise to take up something so foolish as adventuring.
