Dungeons & Dragons 4E: Resources for the Chaos Scar Adventure Path

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.

    I played this area with my group when we first began playing a few years back, and we had a lot of fun. If I remember correctly, the group got involved with the ants from Death in the Pincers, and then dangerously involved with the attempted rebellion in the Keep. This is a great little sandbox area that I can’t recommend enough!

    I’m running my current group through this and it’s going great. Lots of sandbox stuff you can put anywhere in the game. I’m running it using 5E and conversion is pretty easy.
