Prior knowledge of these characters isn't essential, but you should read the sidebars carefully to understand their place in the story. When introducing a recurring character, remind the group which Expedition the character appeared in. If any players completed that scenario, make sure to angle the dialogue towards them. Recognition of prior meetings improves the story's continuity for all involved.

It is recommended that the DM do so well enough in advance to save on time. This will also allow the DM to save time by having maps preͲdrawn, miniatures selected, and other tasks associated with running an encounter ready to go at the drop of a hat. It is recommended that DMs prepare 1 encounter for each sector in their track. This will still allow the players the freedom of choice without sacrificing time. five componentsǡ ǣ 1.

Intro: Mustering the Heroes(All Tracks) ǡ Gilded TrophyǤ Ǥ Mission Briefing ǡ Ǥ ǣ You stand on the deck of the Gilded Trophy. It is winter, and fog has frozen vast swathes of the Moonsea. Summoned by your factions, you have set sail to reclaim Phlan from the Cult of the Dragon! Knight Commander Jhessail Greycastle addresses the alliance from the ship's upper deck. "I remember the day the dragon took our town. When that green bastard tore the roof from Valjevo Castle, and its cultists crawled like vermin from the sewers. My knights failed Phlan that day. It was you who saved those refugees, and led them on their long journey to Mulmaster! "We've licked our wounds too long! Winter has come, and these mists can work in our favor. The dragon has fortified the roads into Phlan, but won't be expecting a night attack from the frozen sea. It's time to take back what is ours! "We attack in three banners! The lion will cross the ice on sleighs to liberate the streets! The eagle will secure the skies on griffons! The broadsword will teleport into Valjevo Castle to slay the dragon! "The Cult of the Dragon is finished. Together, let us be the hammer that seals their coffin forever!" Background: The Knights of the Black FistAfter the unexpected death of the Lord Protector, Phlan's militia seized control of the town. A bloody coup tore them apart, with fully half their members defecting to Vorgansharax. Lord Regent Ector Brahms died in the revolt, and Knight Commander Aleyd Burral was later slain by adventurers after she succumbed to the lure of the Cults of Elemental Evil. Command of the decimated order has fallen to Jhessail Greycastle (DDEX1Ͳ14 Escape from Phlan), a firebrand sworn to reclaim Phlan or die trying. In season 1, your players may have freed Jhessail from Vorgansharax's clutches. If so, she's spent every day since preparing her return. ǡ Ǥ ̵ ǡ Ǥ Griffons screech overhead, and hounds bark from the sleighs. The knights escort you to a candlelit cabin, where a trio of officials leans over a map of Phlan. The First Lord of Hillsfar beckons you forward. Zor Gos of Mulmaster stands nearby, swilling a glass of brandy. Elanil of Elventree studies the map. "There's something odd about these mists", mutters Elanil. "The Moonsea hasn't frozen this swiftly for years. Could this be the influence of the Pool of Radiance?" The First Lord frowns, but doesn't reply. Instead, he addresses you. "We believe that a spirit from the pool, Tyranthraxus, has possessed the Maimed Virulence. Long ago, this spirit pulled the same trick on a different dragon, Srossar. It brought Phlan to its knees. If you uncover information about Tyranthraxus during your mission, deliver it to us immediately. Understood?" Zor Gos hands you a folded map. "These are your orders. I can answer any questions you have" ǣ Track1. Lion2. Eagle3.
