Dare to defy death in this adventure for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.

When they finally succumb, they can’t be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.

The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.

Adventure design by Christopher Perkins, Will Doyle, and Steve Winter, with additional design by Adam Lee. Story consulting by the award-winning creator of Adventure Time, Pendleton Ward.

  1. Possible Character Hooks for Tortles in the Tomb of Annihilation campaign book.

     ANY TORTLE                I’LL BE YOUR HUCKLEBERRY. You often hire out as a guide in Port Nyanzaru or Fort Beluarian, it is a great way to meet new people from other lands. There is big trouble about the Typhoon Palace and, as payment for your services, you requests your party’s help in ridding the palace of monsters plus an equal share of the treasure.

    ANY FAR TRAVELING TORTLE     HOMECOMING. A widespread magical curse threatens to devour the bodies and souls of the living. Talk says it originates in your homeland of Chult, you must return to the Snout of Omgar and check on your people. Looks like you may make a few new friends along the way.
