Lost Laboratory of Kwalish

Post by Havard » Wed Nov 14, 2018 6:51 am

New DMsGuild release from WotC:
Lost Laboratory of Kwalish explores an alternate expedition into the Barrier Peaks. The legendary inventor disappeared in the peaks eons ago… as it turns out, finding a crashed planar ship and studying its technology to fuel his own experiments—only now, Kwalish’s lost research is desperately needed!

For characters 5th-10th level.

This adventure explores two locations within the Barrier Peaks, and includes new monsters, magic items, and spells, plus sci-fi trinkets, random encounters, and even rumors of the area submitted by the player community! Further featuring new art, maps (from Claudio Pozas), and even a cartoon (from Jason Thompson)—as well as the famed suit of powered armor, as edited by Jeremy Crawford on the Dragon+ livestream!

Best of all, all monies that Wizards of the Coast receives from sales of this PDF are donated to Extra Life. Your purchase of this adventure goes to a truly great cause!

What do you guys think of the idea of a reimagined expedition into the Barrier Peaks? Is this the first time this ship is connected to Kwalish?

Nice spot!

It looks from the sidebar on page 2 that Bart Carroll might have rebooted the Expedition to Barrier Peaks backstory to move it to Forgotten Realms. (I've asked for clarification over at DMs Guild.)

Indeed, I noticed that from the free preview. My impression is simply that the adventure provided connections to other published material for 5E, but let me know what you find out :)

I also find it interesting that they refer to the ship as a planar ship...

I saw elsewhere that Anna Meyer is looking through this adventure, checking out the locations mentioned in it.

She is more of a Greyhawk expert than me, so I might check with her to see how well it works as a Greyhawk adventure.

I just noticed that they are also offering this product as a PoD :)
