A new force is rising in the drow city of Menzoberranzan. The Council of Spiders works secretly to further Lolth’s efforts to seize artifacts of magic. With members from many high-ranked houses, the council conspires to topple the mighty priestesses and secure its place at Lolth’s side. The priestesses of Lolth are cunning, though, and they won’t cede power easily to their wizardly counterparts.

Which side will you choose?

Council of Spiders is a Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game adventure designed for the summer 2012 season of the D&D Encounters official play program. In this season, participants are encouraged to play drow characters as they vie for supremacy in the Underdark, and incorporates lore from Menzoberranzan: City of Intrigue. The adventure takes characters from levels 1—3.

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!

Every Wednsday, at 6:30pm, a game of D&D Encounters is held at this location. Dark Forest Games provides the DM everything he needs to play, and all you need to do is bring a valid character, pencil, dice, and maybe a miniature. If your character dies, just make a new one for the next session and game on!
