While it may not seem timely to make a big post about a 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons adventure path that’s several years old now, there’s still a significant 4E audience out there, and the newly released Dungeon Command miniatures and boards integrate with the various Adventure System Board Games (Wrath of Ashardalon, et. al.) to allow for the creation of new scenarios… …or co-opting existing ones, like the Chaos Scar Adventure Path.
This post provides a full list of all the tied adventures in the path, something Wizards of the Coast seemed to forget to keep doing after only a few adventures in the path were published in the electronic pages of DUNGEON Magazine. Furthermore, other helpful links are provided to get more images, background, and detail on potential campaign paths or story arcs.
This post also updates all links, as Wizards’ website has archived the previous articles, changing the destination URLs with no redirects. Who knows if they’ll “stick” for long, so also feel free to check out dndclassics.com for Dungeon Magazine releases in PDF.
