The Rise of Tiamat, designed by Kobold Press and the Wizards RPG Team, is an adventure module set in the Forgotten Realms using the Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition ruleset. It focuses on the Cult of the Dragon's efforts to summon Tiamat, the goddess of chromatic dragons. The Rise of Tiamat is a principal work in the Tyranny of Dragons storyline, and serves as a direct sequel to the adventure module Hoard of the Dragon Queen.

Avert the Cataclysmic Return of Tiamat in this Adventure for the World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game. The Cult of the Dragon leads the charge in an unholy crusade to bring Tiamat back to the Realms, and the situation grows more perilous for good people with each passing moment. The battle becomes increasingly political as opportunities to gather allies and gain advantage present themselves. From Waterdeep to the Sea of Moving Ice to Thay, it is a race against Evil. Succeed or succumb to the oppression of draconic tyranny. Win or lose, things will never be the same again.

  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.
