D&D Encounters season 7 Beyond the Crystal Cave

Adventure Background: Beyond the Crystal Cave

When monsters threaten the placid village of Crystalbrook, it’s up to adventurers to track down where they’re coming from. Their investigation will lead them on a journey across planes. In the Feywild, the heroes must explore an enchanted island garden and unravel the plot of a foul hag, before she and her fiendish companion can perform a ritual to seize control of the island.

Previous Season: 

Lost Crown of Neverwinter

Missing for decades, the Crown of Neverwinter, symbol of the former ruling family, has emerged at last. Yet not all are pleased with the crown’s reappearance. Beset by rebels and plaguechanged, Lord Dagult Neverember must hire a group of adventurers to track down the so-called Lost Heir and discover his intentions for the city. The stakes are no less than the lives of the citizens of Neverwinter, for if the heroes fail, Neverwinter seems doomed to descend into civil war.Session 14 “False Heir of Neverwinter”: The dragon is free, and it attacks the heroes. If the characters spared Seldra in the previous session, she aids in defense of the city, potentially sacrificing herself to help the characters.


Earn exclusive rewards as you gain  Renown Points for accomplishments made during each season!


Heroes needed! Are you game?  
D&D Encounters is an exciting, weekly campaign that plays out one epic encounter at a time. As you defeat enemies, solve puzzles, finish quests, and perform heroic deeds, you’ll earn Renown Points that you can use to get exclusive rewards.  

Each session only takes 1-2 hours to play, so it’s easy to fit your game in after school or work. And each week there’s a new and exciting challenge. Jump in anytime!


Dungeon Masters Wanted

D&D Encounters can’t happen without people behind the screen—the most important seat in the house. With D&D Encounters, DMing is easy. Your store organizer will have everything you need—the adventure, maps, tokens (for PCs and Monsters), as well as all the other game materials you and your players will want and need. 

this time another DM, if we need one, will be rewarded with dry erase initiative cards. this time with the white dragon from the front cover of the encounter book.


Bring Your Own Hero to the Table

If you’re like most players, you’ll want to build your own 1st-level character to bring to D&D Encounters, using the standard character creation rules presented in the   Rules Compendium, Heroes of the Fallen Lands,  or   Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms.

Of course, you can also use the   D&D Character Builder  to create your character as well.

Generate ability scores for your character using the standard array (method 1) or point buy (method 2.)

This season, you can choose character options from any of the following rules sources:


Gaining Experience, Leveling Up, and Earning Rewards

Each week, as you face monsters and overcome obstacles, you’ll gain experience points that will enable you to eventually level up your character. If you manage to play most or all of the sessions this season, you can hit 3rd level by the conclusion of the story.

At the end of each session, your DM will award your Experience Points, as well as your Renown Points (which earn you Rewards). You can track your character’s progress from week to week by asking your organizer for a Play Tracker or by   downloading one here.


Add D&D Fortune Cards and Enhance Your Game

Dungeons & Dragons Fortune Cards, sold in booster packs of 8 cards, give players fun new ways to survive the challenges of the D&D Encounters in-store play program, as well as their home campaigns. These cards give characters fun, temporary benefits that feel different from the benefits gained from powers and feats, without adding undue complexity to the D&D game.  

How They Work 

At the start of each encounter, shuffle your deck and draw a card.  

You can play one card per round. It requires no action to play. The rules on each card state when you can play it and what effect it has. A card takes effect just once unless it states otherwise, and you discard the card when its effect ends. 

The new set is made just for Neverwinter, and the store should have some soon. i have almost a full set of the original set for you to use, though they don't add but small situations bonuses. if you don't have any and choose not to use them, you will not be left in the dust. 

You can have only one Fortune Card in your hand at a time. At the start of each of your turns, you can do one of the following:

  • Discard the card in your hand and draw a new one.
  • Draw a new card if you don’t have one in your hand.
  • Keep the card that’s in your hand if you haven’t played it.
