Rise of the Drow: Campaign Primer

(42 customer reviews)

Welcome traveler!

This guide contains all the information a player needs to orient themselves to the Aventyr campaign setting and to the Rise of the Drow series of adventures, whether the game begins on the surface in Rybalka or in the Underworld.

The adventure focuses on thwarting a drow war of aggression, but the book itself contains the tools to run a sandbox-style campaign in the Underworld, particularly focused around Embla, Holoth, and the Fungi Forest.

Exploring the Underworld—itself a dangerous prospect—allows the GM to introduce any number of unique locations. To get the most out of a campaign of this style, your GM may decide to include optional resources to accompany this guide: Underworld Races & Classes, and Occult Secrets of the Underworld, but these books are not required to enjoy Rise of the Drow.

Included in the Rise of the Drow: Campaign Primer:

  • Pregenerated characters for 5th Edition and Pathfinder 1e
  • Map of Rybalka, Heart of the Frontier
  • Upperworld Races
  • Underworld Races
  • Underworld Cities
  • Deities of Aventyr
  • RotDCE Character Sheets

    The map was very well made! ^^

    My main comment is that I was not expecting so many pregen characters that were from your custom world. In fact, in general, I need less custom world stuff so I can drop this into a more established world to ease characters in.
