The Fantasy Flight Games Event Center is hosting Dungeons & Dragons Lair Assault on Wednesday, January 18th at 8pm and Wednesday, February 15th at 8pm! Are you brave enough for the challenge?
Talon of Umberlee
If you think you have what it takes to face the fiercest foes, fight the toughest battles, and conquer the vilest enemies, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center invites you to a new Dungeons & Dragons play experience! Gather your master tacticians to kick down the dungeon doors and begin the assault. D&D Lair Assault pits tactically-minded players against an intense challenge in which the difference between victory and defeat is dependent upon your game knowledge, ability to adapt, and a little bit of luck.
You'll pit your wits against some of the most difficult encounters you've ever played. Each challenge plays in just a few hours, but many will need to make more than one attempt in the session to achieve victory.
Unlike D&D Encounters and other shared-world campaigns, D&D Lair Assault allows players to utilize the entire breadth of the 4th Edition rules. Any legal character build of the appropriate level, using options from official Wizards products, is permissible in D&D Lair Assault. A great way to sort through the rules and make effective characters is through the Character Builder online tool available to D&D Insider subscribers.
Yes, that means all those books, both old and new, are resources for players to create the most deadly team of adventurers possible. They can pull out an old favorite from the Player’s Handbook, grab something from the latest releases like Heroes of the Feywild, or augment their options with rules from Dragon. If it’s a 4th Edition rules source printed by Wizards, it’s legal for play.
Each D&D Lair Assault challenge will specify a level. The second D&D Lair Assault, Talon of Umberlee, is 8th level. Players bring characters of the challenge’s level to your scheduled event to participate. Characters higher or lower level than the challenge’s level are not allowed.
We use straightforward rules to equip characters for their deadly battles. Each character receives one magic item of one level higher than their level (level + 1), one of their level (level + 0), and one of one level lower than their level (level – 1). In addition, characters receive gold pieces equal to the value of one magic item of one level lower than their level (level – 1) to buy other equipment they think they’ll need. Each character may have no more than two consumable items (like potions or magic ammunition) equal to or less than the challenge’s level, and no more than one rare magic item. Note that players may equip their characters with magic items that are less than the stated levels if they so choose.
So, to use our 8th level example above, each character would have one 9th level, one 8th level and one 7th level magic item, plus 2,600 gold pieces to spend on other equipment (both mundane and magical).
Prepare yourself for the intense tactical action of Dungeons & Dragons: Lair Assault, and join us at the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center Wednesday, January 18th at 8pm and Wednesday, February 15 at 8pm!
