Four from Cormyr is a 2nd-edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons adventure module for the Forgotten Realms.

The kingdom of Cormyr is a land of law and order, a country populated by citizens who live good lives and treat their neighbors well. If you think these characteristics make Cormyr an unexciting and uninviting place... think again.

Despite the ever-present Purple Dragon soldiers and War Wizards who are charged with keeping the kingdom safe from treachery and greed, Cormyr is a place where evil lurks in countless nooks and crannies, where opportunities for heroic adventurers to do good for themselves and for all of Cormyr are as abundant as the dents on a dwarf's helmet.

Four from Cormyr is a quartet of adventures that can be played individually or as a series. By the time they have experienced all that lies within this 128-page book, ranging from a grand soiree at the home of a noble to a chilling expedition into the Vast Swamp, player characters will know more about this challenging land than they ever thought they would need to know—and even if they succeed in countering all the threats they will face, they'll find that the conclusion to each adventure opens a new vista of possibilities for continuing danger and intrigue.

Suitable for six to eight characters of levels 9–12.


Four from Cormyr is set in Cormyr. It consists of four loosely-connected adventures that take place across the realm, with the unifying thread of the titular Four from Cormyr, a collection of powerful magical items tied to Cormyr's history.


Cormyr? Please, I'm not interested in such a place. Who wants, or needs, a place that has been so tamed by good agents of law? Really, now, they've driven out all of the elements that made life so interesting, and replaced them with a pack of boring, predictable, and yes, arrogant and self-righteous, cattle. Give me someplace where I can be free to be who I am, and life has some of that delicious uncertainty that makes it worth living.
— Mendryll Belarod, bard extraordinaire[1]
Anyone who thinks that Cormyr no longer has any challenges left either is a fool or has not looked hard enough. Perhaps both.

The introduction to Four from Cormyr is The Border Crossing, a short encounter at a Purple Dragons outpost on the border of Cormyr. No dramatic events take place, rather it is a means for players and their characters to become familiarized with the laws and customs of Cormyr in preparation of future adventures.

The Bibliophile starts place in Arabel, and revolves around a scheme by the Puppetmasters adventuring company as they trick the player characters into clearing out Barrenstone, the home of the lich Adzerak, so that they can in turn rob them and loot the dungeon themselves. During this delve, the player characters recover Deathsend of the Four from Cormyr, and send Adzerak to his final rest with Deneir.

In Murder Most Magical, the player characters are invited to a party hosted by Lord Partic Thistle at Thistleflame Keep in Suzail, which is spoiled by a plot by the Emerald Swords adventuring company to kidnap the Lord. Their plan quickly falls to pieces and a dead doppelganger in the form of Lord Thistle is found, prompting a murder investigation by the Purple Dragons commander Aleka Ravenheart. The player characters must interrogate a vast cast of dysfunctional and eccentric house servants, adventurers, and anyone else who happens to be in the area. After the player characters discern the Emerald Swords' involvement, Lord Thistle is rescued and awards them the Seal of Iron.

Bad Neighbor Policy starts in Suzail, with the player characters hired to find a suspected rogue adventuring party, the Wolfmasters. This pursuit takes them past the vampire-haunted Journey's Rest inn, through the frontier town of Thunderstone, and into the treacherous Vast Swamp, culminating at the ruins of Orvaskyte Keep. Finding the Wolfmasters all dead (a fine excuse for late payment), the party travels deeper into the ruins. Along the way they discover the Fireblood gem, but must contend with a rampaging cornugon, rival adventurers, a territorial black dragon, and the horrors of the swamp. A side adventure has the player characters track down a group of hobgoblins that have set up a copper mine in the Hullack Forest, using slave labor to harvest the ore.

Redemption has the player characters trek across the Stonelands and face down Lord Vorik Aris, a supporter of the false king Gondegal. Using Halfhap as a base, the player characters investigate the destruction left behind by Gondegal's war of 15 years ago. In the process, they discover the bastard sword Silveredge and reassemble the Four from Cormyr, end a divine curse, and release the trapped ghosts of Purple Dragons and citizens of Darkenshield who fell long ago.

  1. The exact date is not mentioned, but multiple references are made to Gondegal's rebellion being at least fifteen years ago, placing it in 1367 DR onward. Explicit references are also made to Lord Orgauth and his rebuilding of Zhentil Keep, which would place it in 1369 DR at the earliest. 1369 DR is also consistent with other products published at this time.
