Idle Champions: Dragon Heist, Part 6 
Posted in Idle Champions.

While in pursuit of Nihiloor, the Mind Flayer in possession of the Stone of Golorr, the Champions have found themselves in Skullport, a refuge for outlaws hidden beneath the streets of Waterdeep.

As the Champions hunt for their prize along with the assistance of hidden allies, they come face to face with the infamous leader of Skullport and The Xanathar Guild...

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Dragon Heist Adventures, Hopelessly Lost and Enter the Sargauth, in order to access these new Adventures.

A Wild Offer Appears...

This update we have added new Wild Offers to some platforms, which we will continue to roll out to all platforms in the coming weeks. Wild Offers are customized package deals that offer limited-time Golden Epics, Skins, and Familiars that are no longer available through normal means. Each Wild Offer is unique, generated based on your specific progress, and new offers will appear every few days.

The City of Splendor

We've added a new Map screen for the Waterdeep: Dragon Heist campaign! This map of Waterdeep includes several levels of Undermountain along with Skullport, making it much easier to navigate the campaign. No more scrolling up and down objectives on a single location on the Sword Coast map!

The Lair of The Xanathar

The Champions arrive in Skullport, a dangerous haven for outlaws and criminals beneath the streets of Waterdeep. While hunting for clues that could help lead them to the Stone of Golor, the Champions find themselves face-to-face with The Xanathar.
  • Variant: Dreams of Beholders — Injured, but not defeated, the Xanathar rests in a secret alcove of its lair before the final assault on the Vault of Dragons. While dreaming, it replays the Champions' assault on its home, but with a slightly different journey. A Death Kiss now takes up a slot in the formation, draining the blood of the Champions. It deals a percentage of each Champions' max health as damage every second.
    Reach Area 225.

Waterdeep Under Siege

The Xanathar has located The Vault of Dragons, and knows where the keys to get inside are. It's a race against time to get to the vault before the Xanathar can get there!
  • Variant: Bregan D'aerthe Comes to Call — Jarlaxle Starts in the formation and cannot be moved or swapped out. Two members of Bregan D'aerthe join the formation. They attack with their pistols, marking the target for the remainder of the area. Enemies that have been attacked by the pistols increase their speed and deal additional damage as they frantically attempt to figure out what these new weapons are.
    Reach Area 225.

Idle Champions: Dragon Heist, Part 5 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The Champions are on the hunt for Nihiloor, a Mind Flayer in service to The Xanathar Guild. They entered the sewers of Waterdeep in pursuit only to become lost in the labyrinth of tunnels while searching for Skullport.

Unfortunately for the Champions, they've stumbled into Undermountain, the dungeon of the mad mage Halaster Blackcloak...

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Dragon Heist Adventures, Nimble Escape and Fugitives, in order to access these new Adventures.

Hopelessly Lost

After following their quarry into Waterdeep's sewers, the Champions have become lost in Undermountain. It's going to take everything they have to try and find their way back out again!
  • Variant: Bazaar Exploits — Two Goblins accompany the Champions, taking up spots in the formation. Every 25 Areas the two Goblins change their location. While attacking Xanathar Guild enemies, Champions' damage is increased.

Enter the Sargauth

The Champions are on the hunt, looking for a way to Skullport - after all, they have a stone to find - but something else is already on the hunt for them...
  • Variant: Elder Rune Madness — Each time you enter the portal, a different Elder Rune takes effect for the next 50 Areas. These Elder Runes vary in effects from Champions taking damage whenever monsters spawn to random debuffs, monsters dropping less gold, and Champions being unable to regain hit points or gain shields. Good luck!

Posted in Idle Champions.

The chase is on! After discovering that a Nimblewright set off the explosion in Trollskull Alley, the Champions are on the hunt for the construct and its prize.

Soon the Champions find themselves in the middle of a conflict between competing factions — and lured into a trap set by their enemies...

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Dragon Heist Adventures, Trollskull Manor and Attack on the Manor, in order to access these new Adventures.

Nimble Escape

Following a lead on the Nimblewright, the Champions enter Gralhund Villa and run head first into a slew of enemies.
  • Variant: Nimblest Escape — Only Champions with a Dexterity (DEX) score of 14 or higher may be used.

Fugitives

The Nimblewright is on the run, and the Champions are in pursuit — but other interested parties are hot on their trail!
  • Variant: From The Shadows — Only Champions with ranged or magic attacks can be used.

  • A Botched Kidnapping: Domesticated Owlbears — A crazed Owlbear attacks the party in each area, stunning a random Champion.

Idle Champions: Dragon Heist, Part 3 
Posted in Idle Champions.

After thwarting a pair of plots to kidnap and kill lords of Waterdeep, the Champions are presented with a new challenge: homeownership!

The scholar Volothamp Geddarm has gifted the party with the title to Trollskull Manor, an aging estate located in Trollskull Alley in the North Ward of Waterdeep.

What Volo neglected to mention, however, is that the manor itself is already occupied...

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Dragon Heist Adventures, A Dinner Party and A Botched Kidnapping, in order to access these new Adventures.

Trollskull Manor

The Champions have been given the title to a house in Trollskull Alley, the aptly-named Trollskull Manor. However, it looks like some unwanted guests have taken up residence inside — time to kick them out!
  • Variant: The Gargoyle's Apprentice — All the activity within Trollskull Manor has activated a long forgotten spell cast by one of Ulkoria's students, awakening her cleaning objects to help prep the manor for residents again!

Attack on the Manor

After the Champions finish cleaning up their new base of operations, an explosion in Trollskull Alley brings chaos right to their doorstep.
  • Variant: The Trepidatious Trio — Nat, Squiddly, and Jenks tag along to help the Champions. They take up three slots in the formation and do no damage.

Idle Champions: Dragon Heist, Part 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

A plot as been uncovered to murder one of the Masked Lords of Waterdeep, and the Blackstaff of Waterdeep wants the Champions to help protect a key Person of Interest: a retired adventurer and philanthropist named Mirt.

Today marks the second story update for our Waterdeep: Dragon Heist campaign, but that's not all: we're also including additional Torm's, Kelemvor's, and Helm's Blessings!

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Dragon Heist Adventures, A Mysterious Summons and Building Trust, in order to access these new Adventures.

A Dinner Party

The party returns to Waterdeep at the behest of Vajra Safahr, Blackstaff of Waterdeep. It seems there is a plot to murder one of the hidden lords of Waterdeep, but she doesn't know which one. She has activated every tool at her disposal, and assigns the party to protect Mirt, the moneylender...
  • Variant: Chatty Nobles — Only Champions with a Charisma score of 14 or higher can be used.

A Botched Kidnapping

Trying to relax in the renowned Yawning Portal isn't working out too well for the party. Not only is your group too big to find a table, Volothamp Geddarm starts to chat you up and won't shut up about his newest tome, Volo's Guide to Monsters. Your drinks and conversation are suddenly interrupted a troll erupts out of the well!
  • Variant: Haaave you met Asmodeus? — Two Cultists of Asmodeus take up slots in the formation, proselytizing on behalf of Asmodeus, the Lord of the Nine Hells. They do little to help you, and to add insult to injury, Xanathar & Zhentarim foes are upset that you have "aligned" yourself with the cult. They now deal four times as much damage and have four times as much health!

Features:

  • Added two new adventures to our Waterdeep: Dragon Heist campaign, along with two new variants.
  • New Blessings of Torm, Kelemvor, and Helm have been added to the game — we hope you've been farming lots of Divine Favor!

Posted in Idle Champions.

The Blackstaff of Waterdeep, Vajra Safahr, has summoned you to Waterdeep. Upon arrival in the city, the party is quickly caught in a web of Waterdhavian intrigue, including a street war between Zhentarim mercenaries and the Xanathar guild, and a dinner meeting with the Open Lord of Waterdeep...
