Defiance In Phlan

DDEX1-01, “Defiance In Phlan”, is the first adventure in the Adventurer’s League Tyranny of Dragons Campaign Path.

We played this module on Wednesday, 7 February 2018. Players present were Elinor, Sonya, Meghan and Nick.

Official Blurb

The Cult of the Dragon has come to Phlan, a lawless refuge on the Moonsea. Now, with no significant authority to stop the cult, other power groups in the Realms - the Harpers, Order of the Gauntlet, Emerald Enclave, Lords' Alliance and even the Zhentarim - must unite to stop the cult from fulfilling its dark purpose in the city. Join the fight by participating in any one of five different missions aimed at stopping the cult. An introductory adventure for 1st-level characters.

Synopsis of Play

In the year 1489 DR, old friends Qelfras, Daralyn, Kiara and Shoji met at Madame Freona's Tea Kettle, a tavern in the merchant district.

While there, they were requested by an agent of the Harpers to intervene in the illicit sale of a dragon egg. They succeeded in interrupting the sale, but were then attacked by members of the Welcomers (the Phlan thieves’ guild), led by a half-orc named Grumash, looking to steal the egg. The Welcomers were defeated, and Grumash knocked unconscious by Daralyn (earning him the nickname “the Unreliable”), but the egg turned out to be a fake. The Harper contact paid them anyway and mentioned a rise in “dragon-related activity” in and around Phlan.

Behind the GM’s Screen

The published “Defiance In Phlan” module included five short introductory adventures. Because we did character creation in this session, we only played one of the five scenarios, entitled “The Meeting at Deepnight”. The other four unplayed scenarios are listed below, and in the world of our game can be considered to have been undertaken by other adventuring parties.
