D&D Adventurers League ‘Epic' at UKGE
multi-table experience for more than 50 players
UKGamesExpo is extremely proud to host the first Dungeons and Dragons Adventurers League ‘Epic’ staged in the UK.
Reclamation of Phlan is an exciting, multi-table experience for more than 50 players which will be overseen by the Adventurers League (Europe) team.
The goal is suitably epic: Slay the great and powerful green dragon Vorgansharax and liberate the town of Phlan from cultists. Players must co-operate between tables to clear the streets, muster allies from neighbouring villages, and assault the dragon’s lair…
Penned by UK author Will Doyle (who will be one of the team running this exciting event), Reclamation of Phlan wraps up an enthralling story arc which began in season one of the Adventurers League programme.
In that season (Tyranny of Dragons) the dragon Vorgansharax, also known as ‘the Maimed Virulence’, conquered the town of Phlan.
In Season 2 (Elemental Evil), as refugees from Phlan, many player characters worked with the Zors and other groups in Mulmaster to gain the needed support to take back Phlan, but plans had to be halted due to the town almost being destroyed by nefarious cults.
During Season 3 (Rage of Demons) the demons erupting from The Underdark caused further delays in the retaking of Phlan, but now that the demons have been pushed back into their abyssal homes, Phlan again becomes the focus of attention for the five factions – the Harpers, Order of the Gauntlet, Lords’ Alliance, Emerald Enclave and Zhentarim.
The opportunity to strike back at Vorgansharax, and liberate the town of Phlan, is now at hand! Who will rise to the challenge?
In this levels 1 to 16 adventure, which spans all three tiers of Adventurers League play, players can expect the usual mix of brutal combat and a race against the clock to free the people of Phlan from their draconic overlord and its minions.
Over and above the usual group mechanic, players will enjoy an interactive and immersive experience and can expect surprises as villains wander between tables – testing even the most competent of players and parties to their limits.
Martin Tideswell, Regional Co-ordinator for the Adventurers League (Europe) said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer players the chance to play in the first D&D Epic adventure staged in the UK. I was fortunate enough to play in the first ever Epic run at Gen Con Indy in 2012 and it was electrifying.
“What’s more, Reclamation of Phlan is a brilliant scenario – written by our very own Will Doyle – who is widely acknowledged to be one of the Adventurers League’s best game designers. He’ll be helping us make it a night to remember!”
As well as the Epic, the Adventurers League (Europe) team will also be staging a raft of Season Four (Curse of Strahd) adventures which will pit their characters against an iconic Dungeons and Dragons villain – Strahd von Zarovich, the vampire lord of Castle Ravenloft.
These adventures include three ‘Premiers’ – The Raven, The Horseman and The Dark Lord – which will be having their world debuts at UKGamesExpo and which will bring the Curse of Strahd campaign to a thrilling climax.
