by Andrew G. Schneider

“Reign of Despair” takes place in the Shadowfell city of Gloomwrought, where a series of murders threatens to sunder a pair of young lovers and send their respective noble houses into war against one another. The heroes must navigate intrigue and the hazards of Gloomwrought in an attempt to keep open conflict from erupting in the city streets and to keep true love—so rare in this dismal realm—alive.

This DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® adventure is designed for characters of levels 8–10. It makes use of the Despair Deck and information in The Shadowfell: Gloomwrought and Beyond™.
