D&D Encounters adventure


This is not an actual publicly-available product, but an adventure run as part of Wizards of the Coast's D&D Lair Assault community games running worldwide, from June 1 - August 31, 2012.


The following text is a description taken from the WotC web site:

'If you think you have what it takes to brave the fiercest foes, fight the toughest battles, and conquer the vilest enemies, we have the Dungeons & Dragons play experience for you! Gather your master tacticians and rules experts together to kick down the dungeon doors and begin the assault! D&D Lair Assault is a new Wizards Play Network in-store program that pits tactically-minded players against a super challenge where the difference between victory and defeat is dependent upon your game knowledge, ability to adapt, and a little bit of luck. You'll pit your wits against some of the most difficult encounters you've ever played.

Each challenge is a mega-encounter that plays in just a few hours, but many will need to make more than one run at it in pursuit of victory. D&D Lair Assault challenges are available for a few months, and stores can schedule their sessions at any time during that period.

D&D Lair Assault has been designed for a quality, fun, super-challenging play experience that really encourages repeat play. We've designed the kits to accommodate as many players as possible by keeping the focus on the play experience, accomplishments, and bragging rights. Rather than making the challenge all about obtaining a physical "prize," it's about having a great time playing a fun D&D game available nowhere else.


The fun begins on June 1, and Spiderkiller can be played through August 31. Make sure to contact your store soon to ensure they're participating.

As you prepare, we wanted to set the stage for what you’ll soon be facing! Jennifer Clarke Wilkes designed our 4th D&D Lair Assault, Spiderkiller -- where somewhere in the Lost Level of Undermountain, a fallen drow matron schemes to open a way to the Demonweb. Should she succeed, can anything stop Lolth's faithful?'
