Okay, there isn't actually a bear on stage during the events of the new Heroic-tier LFR adventure WATE2-4 Stage Misdirection (at least, not unless the PCs bring their own), but I've always wanted to use that most famous of stage directions from Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale, and the adventure does deal with the trials and tribulations of a famous theatrical production in the City of Splendors.
Note that this adventure uses the Year 2 mustering rules; specifically, it is for the H1 level band (character levels 1-4) and features low tier / high tier versions (see the LFR Campaign Guide for details if you are unfamiliar with the Year 2 table-formation rules).
WATE2-4 Stage Misdirection
by Brad Gardner
The performing arts have always been popular in Waterdeep, but the competition for best actor has become cutthroat. Can you make sense of all the drama and find the true plot? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Waterdeep for characters of levels 1-4 (H1 level band).
As with all new LFR adventures, WATE2-4 is available for download from our Community Download Site at www.livingforgottenrealms.com.
In other Waterdhavian news, although we are not quite ready to announce a release date, the city's broadsheets have their top reporters out pounding the pavement for rumors about the Year 3 Waterdeep trilogy. You can expect an announcement soon regarding WATE3-1, 3-2, and 3-3, which will be released later this year, and are for the Paragon tier.
Thanks for your support of Living Forgotten Realms!
