Spoiler alert: The following article contains spoilers for a Dungeons & Dragons product.


Red Hand of Doom follows a group of adventurers who have entered the Elsir Vale, a thinly-populated frontier region. The party uncovers and then is placed in the position of stopping a massive hobgoblin horde, fanatically devoted to the dark goddess Tiamat and led by the charismatic half-dragon warlord Azarr Kul. To stop the horde, the players will have to muster the inhabitants of the Vale, battle hobgoblins, giants and dragons, and defeat an overwhelming enemy.
