The Twilight Tomb is an adventure module set in the Forgotten Realms for the v.3.5 of Dungeons & Dragons. It was designed by Greg A. Vaughan, based on a concept by Bruce R. Cordell, with cover art by Jon Foster and interior art by Marvin Mariano and Steve Prescott. It is designed for 3rd-level characters.

Stand Against the Coming Night! Shadows in the forest deepen as an oracle among the Yuirwood's half-elf inhabitants foretells the reemergence of the Duskwalker, an ancient and corrupt star elf wizard. Missing travelers and lost goods all point to a circle of standing stones within the forest. Perhaps, like its counterparts elsewhere in the Yuirwood, this stone henge allows for travel to another place—but where? And what growing darkness awaits those bold enough to find out?

Summary[edit | edit source]

The adventure sees the PCs on an expedition into the Yuirwood of Aglarond, where they discover a passage to the Night Realm, a demiplane splintered off the plane of Sildëyuir, realm of the star elves. Here, they venture into a citadel of glass and are caught between the mad schemes of a corrupted star elf named Mourel Duskwalker, a yochlol sorceress named Savera, and contend with armies of skeletons and orc and hobgoblin mercenaries and much stranger monsters. The theme is one of weird horror, with bizarre undead and aberrations appearing. The storyline reveals some of the history and culture of the star elves first introduced in Unapproachable East, as well as their conflict with the nilshai.
