Latest news surrounding the release of the Neverwinter MMO module: Rise of Tiamat!

As the cold winter winds sweep across the Sword Coast, a dark presence stirs…

For some time now, the Cult of the Dragon has labored tirelessly to bring about the reign of Tiamat, the Queen of Dragons. Fortunately, the heroes of Neverwinter have fought valiantly to keep this desire simply that—a madman’s dream that, with time, would melt away like a snowflake on a wyrmling’s tongue. But alas, despite the immense setbacks posed to them by the denizens of Neverwinter, the Cult of the Dragon has succeeded in achieving their twisted goal.

Tiamat has come to Toril, but there is still time…

The factions of the Sword Coast and even some repentant members of the Cult of the Dragon have rallied behind the powerful wizard Elminster Aumar in an effort to defeat the draconic goddess and send her back to the Nine Hells! Calling upon the powers of Linu La’neral, a cleric of Sehanine Moonbow, and her colleagues, adventurers will be able to weaken Tiamat to the point where she is vulnerable to their spells and steel. In addition to this divine assault, Eliminster and his followers have conceived of another way to aid those battling the Dragon Queen.

To a dragon, treasure is power. Throughout the Tyranny of Dragons campaign, adventurers have collected Dragon Hoard Coins and Dragon Hoard Coffers. While they have certainly had their uses, their greater purpose is now realized. By collecting Dragon Hoard Coins, Dragon Hoard Coffers and Dragon Empire Treasures, players will be able to contribute to the effort to reclaim Tiamat’s hoard. By banding together with their fellow adventurers, they will be able to collectively empower the brave souls facing Tiamat. What’s more is that as the reclaimed treasure hoard grows, so will the boons bestowed upon those fighting the Dragon Queen. Adventurers can even cause certain powerful items to have a chance of dropping at the end of the battle if enough treasure is reclaimed. Those who contribute massive amounts of points will have their beneficence rewarded with an item, Linu’s Favor, that will allow them to obtain even more powerful equipment! By weakening Tiamat and strengthening those who seek to defeat her, the world of Toril appears to have gained something more valuable than any dragon’s hoard: hope.

The Cult thinks they have won, but it’s not too late to act. Tiamat has risen…

Will you rise to meet her?
