This page contains spoilers for a storyline in Dungeons and Dragons. Please read with caution.

Tomb of Annihilation is a Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition adventure module. It's meant for players to start at level 1 and end at 11.

Disclaimer: This adventure will make your players hate you—the kind of simmering hatred that eats away at their souls until all that remains are dark little spheres of annihilation where their hearts used to be. PS Don't forget to tear up their character sheets.

Dare to defy death in this adventure for the world's greatest roleplaying game.

The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who's ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.

When they finally succumb, they can't be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they've ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.

The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.

Errata

In Port Nyanzaro chapter there is a typo in the Side Quest 10. Seek Wisdom at Orolunga. “Speak to the wise guardian of Orolunga, east of Mbala. She can direct you to that which you seek.” This should read "West".
