If your Paragon-tier characters are looking for a sunny spot to take some well-deserved vacation, may we recommend that they avoid the Netherese Empire? Now you too can soak up the shadows, with three brand-new adventures forming a Major Quest. This trilogy premiered at Origins 2011 and is now available for public and private play from www.livingforgottenrealms.com, so book your vacation today!
Just a note, if you played NETH3-01, NETH3-02, and/or NETH3-03 at Origins, we already have your Event Summaries. If you played a slot zero and did not turn in an Event Summary to HQ at Origins, please fill out the appropriate online surveys (links to which can also be found on the LFR Community Download site along with the adventure downloads) so that your table's results can be counted. Thanks!
NETH3-1 Secrets and Shadows
by Thomas J. Scott
Recently, the clergy of Selune obtained a powerful artifact named Last Grasp of Shadowbane. However, following a recent meeting of the high priests, the artifact has vanished. With its hunger to conquer shadow creatures, this weapon could forever change the balance of power in Netheril. Someone is needed to locate the artifact and ensure that it is used for the purpose it was intended. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Netheril for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the first part of the Sand and Shadows Major Quest, which continues with NETH3-2 and concludes with NETH3-3. We recommend that you play the three adventures in order, with the same character, if possible.
NETH3-2 Flirting with Disaster
by John du Bois and Alan Patrick
At this point in your adventuring career, the idea of pulling a shift on caravan guard duty is well beneath you. But when the caravan in question is braving the Ordulin Maelstrom, even that simple job could end up being more than you can handle. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Netheril for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the second part of the Sand and Shadows Major Quest.
NETH3-3 Seek and Destroy
by Lee and Michelle Sharp, and Jack "Skip" Warren
It's time to finish the job you and the Sand Kings have started: the infiltration of Shade Enclave and the assassination of a major Netherese agent. But is a direct assault the best path to take -- both literally and morally? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Netheril for characters of the Paragon tier (levels 11-20). This adventure is the third and final part of the Sand and Shadows Major Quest. It is legal to play the adventures out of order, but you cannot earn the Major Quest bonus if you have not played both NETH3-1 and NETH3-2 before playing NETH3-3.
For those looking for more Heroic-tier adventures, worry not -- the next two chapters in the Elturgard Story Area also premiered at Origins and they are the subject of tomorrow's blog post.
