Neverwinter: Tyranny of Dragons is the 4th campaign expansion module for the Neverwinter massive-multiplayer role-playing game. Released in August 2013, the expansion added a new campaign, adventure zone, skirmish, and a new dungeon, along with numerous other updates.

Starting today, players can play the Scourge Warlock class. This new class focuses on ranged damage with a curse mechanic, making it an excellent damage dealing role for parties. The Scourge Warlock will join the 6 other classes as they battle through regions overrun with the Cult of the Dragon, culminating in new heroic encounters with several dragons from Dungeons & Dragons lore.

Plot[edit | edit source]

A new faction of the Cult of the Dragon led by the wizard Severin Silrajin, arose in Faerûn to bring back glory to the dragons of the Realms. Aided by the green dragon Charthraxis, a group of this new sect appeared in Neverdeath Graveyard, searching over graves and crypts in order to open a portal to the island of Tuern. After having their efforts slowed by the Heroes of Sleeping Dragon Bridge, the cult began operating out of Ebon Downs, seeking out the aid of the black dragon Vartilingorix. At the same time, the cult cell in Icespire Peak enlisted the aid of the white dragon Merothax to plunder the mithral mines owned by the dwarves of Clan Icehammer, while those in Rothé Valley forged an alliance with House Xorlarrin in order to gain unhindered access to the blue dragon Venfithar. Finally in the Whispering Caverns in the Northdark, the cult sought to unearth the ancient hoard of a dragon named Saphirax, and summoned the dracolich Vilithrax to guard the site. Though the heroes destroyed the undead Vilithrax, the cultists finally got what they were searching for: the location and activation sequence for the portal to Tuern.

In an unprecedented move, the Harpers joined forces with the Order of the Gauntlet, the Emerald Enclave, the Lords' Alliance, and even the Zhentarim to stop the Cult of the Dragon. The allied force ascended the slopes of Kelvin's Cairn to the portal's location, activating it with the hope of securing a foothold in Tuern. Unfortunately they were betrayed by Rath Modar, who was secretly working with the cult and its leader Severin. After the five factions secured the location, the Heroes of Sleeping Dragon Bridge went through the portal and discovered ancient draconic ruins that housed the lair of the red dragon Lostmauth. While they heroes slew the great dragon, they were unable to prevent Severin from retrieving the Red Dragon Mask. Armed with new power, the Cult of the Dragon launched a massive assault on Neverwinter, breaching the walls with the aid of their numerous draconic allies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Canon material does not provide a year for the Tyranny of Dragons storyline, but in a forum post, Greg Marks stated it was set in 1489 DR. However, the events of the Tyranny of Dragons are discussed in the novel Archmage, set in 1486 DR. Since this inconsistency has not been cleared up, this wiki will use the vague term "1480s DR" for events related to this storyline.
