It's All in the Blood is an adventure module set in the Forgotten Realms using the Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition ruleset. It is part of the Rage of Demons series of adventures published for the D&D Adventurers League. It focuses on the village of Elventree, drow, and the Maerimydra. It is an adventure designed for three to seven 11th- to 16th-level characters.

Rumors of faceless demonic creatures have been steadily rising in the Hillsfar region, and it is said that far below the surface of Faerun, nestled in the bowels of the Underdark, ancient terrors are stirring. The imperiled drow of Szith Morcane have extended an intriguing offer, but can the drow be trusted, and for how long?[1]

Summary[edit | edit source]

The adventure starts off with adventurers being invited to a shadowed cave outside of Elventree by Murssvayas Dhuurniv. Here the drow wizard asks for their assistance against the fire giants of Maerimydra. In order to do so, they must help recover the drow alchemist, Xaven Tanor'this.

Following Murssvayas' instructions, the adventurers descend into the Deep Wastes, eventually reaching the Howling Pits, where they battle past various denizens and dangers of the Underdark. Eventually, they find the Den of the Whispered Word where the yugoloth, Maram il Vass, holds Xaven.

After either negotiating or fighting for the drow's release, the adventurers make their way to Sporedome, where the displaced drow of Szith Morcane, led by Solom Ned'razak, reside. Xaven and Solom resolve to create a ritual to remove the demonic taint from their enemies.

To this end, they send the adventurers to Maerimydra to retrieve some live specimens. Using a secret entrance beneath Black Ember Outpost, the group enter the former drow city. With the help of the imp, Pipyap, they attempt to capture one of two fiendborne fire giants.
