Last Breath of TiamatD&D Insider Article
The Scales of War Adventure Path
by David Noonan

“Last Breath of the Dragon Queen” is an adventure for five 30th-level characters. By the end of the adventure, the characters should have saved the universe, slain a god, and achieved their epic destinies, thus ending the campaign. This adventure is the final chapter in the Scales of War adventure path, the culmination of events that started thirty levels ago. The characters travel to Tiamat’s lair in the Caverns of Fiery Splendor, where they face Tiamat’s most loyal guardians, then the Dragon Queen herself in all her five-headed might. They aren’t fighting a reflection of Tiamat, an avatar of Tiamat, an aspect of Tiamat, or anything less daunting than the actual goddess at the zenith of her power.

“Tiamat who formed all things, made in addition weapons invincible; she spawned monster-serpents, sharp of tooth, and merciless of fang; with poison, instead of blood, she filled their bodies. fierce monster-vipers she clothed with terror, with splendor she decked them, she made them of lofty stature. whoever beheld them, terror overcame him, their bodies reared up and none could withstand their attack.”
