HC-Earthfast.jpg
Earthfast was a shield dwarven city in the Earthfast Mountains between Impiltur and the Vast, stretching from a high mountain valley down to the Earthroot area of the Underdark. It was a war-torn place, under constant siege from orcs and goblins in the 14th century DR. Though much of the city was abandoned, it was home to Alagh Rorncaurak, the Battlecavern of Unquenched Valor, a vast chasm and natural cathedral to the god Clangeddin Silverbeard and a key defense of the city.

Unending war took a terrible toll on the dwarves. Many women and children were slain, leaving men who all honored their parents as war-heroes. Earthfast dwarves were battle-hardened veterans, grim and moody sorts who worked and fought in utter silence, seeing stealth as a virtue and vital defense. They were even head-hunters, seizing the skulls of foes and stacking them in tidy pyramids in a great cavern. The greater the foe, the better the skull.

Nevertheless, Earthfast was an honorable ally who would still come to another's aid. They were allies of Impiltur early in its history. Centuries later, after befriending the renegade "Mithril Princess" Alusair of Cormyr, who helped break the siege, Earthfast dwarves joined King Azoun IV in his Crusade against the Tuigan Horde, defending and saving all of Faerûn at high cost to themselves.

New & Upcoming Releases

Neverwinter Dragonslayer key art.jpg
Neverwinter: Dragonslayer, released on June 14th, 2022, is an expansion module for the massively-multiplayer role-playing game Neverwinter.
Following the events of Dragonbone Vale, the Shield of the North successfully drove Valindra Shadowmantle out of the Sword Coast, but not before she managed to cast a flawed version of the Scaleblight Mythal. The malevolent spell awakened countless dragons to the phenomenon of dragonsight, twisting their motivations and driving them to wild rage. The call for help sounds out once more in Dragonslayer, where players will need to hunt down these deadly dragons, alongside fellow dragonslayers in hopes of saving the Sword Coast.
MTGCLB Collector Bundle.png
Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate, released on June 10th, 2022, is a Magic: The Gathering set themed around the city of Baldur's Gate and the Baldur's Gate series of video games.
Dungeons & Dragons storytelling meets Magic's most social format in a new crossover multiplayer experience for the ages. Turn every Commander game into an adventure with iconic D&D characters and spells. And create your own powerful character from the ground up with the return of Commander Draft.

The Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set is the official beginner's guide to 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. As well as a rule book, the boxed set contains a set of polyhedral dice, characters sheets, and the Lost Mine of Phandelver adventure.

The adventure takes place in the Neverwinter region of the Sword Coast, and the characters are tasked to escort mining supplies to Phandalin. Rumored to exist somewhere near Phandalin is the legendary Wave Echo Cave. During their escort quest, the adventurers are quickly assaulted by the Cragmaw tribe of goblinoids. They later find out that the dwarf who set them on the task, Gundren Rockseeker, has been captured by the same tribe that assaulted them. Their task is to rescue Gundren, and find out what he has learned about the mysterious cave. Throughout their adventure, the characters can seek out the Forge of Spells or even take on the young green dragon, Venomfang.
