40 pages of mystery, war, and dangerous dungeons

Deep within the dark recesses of the Tomb of Nihalar, the final resting place of elven kings, the weapon of the wood elves of Imfe Aiqua stirs. Two individuals are drawn to the weapon—but only one can accept it. Who will take up the glaive of the revenant king and become the ruler of the forgotten elven city?

Glaive of the Revenant King is a 3rd-level Fifth Edition adventure for 3-5 characters. Characters who survive the adventure should reach the 4th level by the adventure’s conclusion.

The campaign is intended to be set in the DMDave crowdsourced campaign world of Omeria. However, it can just as easily be inserted into any other mysterious, untamed wilderness.

The adventure is written by renown Fifth Edition author, DMDave Hamrick. It’s 40 pages of fast-paced fantasy adventure that includes zombie hordes, horrible monsters in dark forests, battles with orcs, and tombs filled with dangerous traps.

  1. I am thinking of running and purchasing this adventure after my players on Roll20 finish Lost Mine of Phandelver. However, they will likely be level 5. I wanted to ask if anyone knows about how much roleplay there is in this adventure in relation to combat/dungeon. Furthermore, is it possible and easy to level up some of the encounters to suit a level 5 party?
