The lands around Firestorm Peak have grown restless. The few villages near the volcano have been besieged by marauding bands of orcs and kobolds, and more dangerous horrors lurk in the shadows. Worst of all, a new villain calls the mountain home—the terrifying red dragon Ashardalon has turned the volcano into its lair.
Hope appears in the form of a band of Adventurers that arrive in the village of Longbridge, hidden away in the foothills of Firestorm Peak. They are welcomed, but the village elders have little hope that their plight will change. Brave Heroes regularly attempt to destroy the evil within Firestorm Peak, but none have ever returned from the dungeon beneath the volcano. Perhaps these new Heroes will be the ones to stop the red dragon Ashardalon and save the village of Longbridge….
The Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game is a cooperative adventure game—with rules familiar to fans of the Castle Ravenloft Board Game. You and your fellow Heroes work as a team to succeed in the adventures that unfold within the dungeon beneath the volcano. You either win together or lose together.
Each player selects a Hero, who has come to Firestorm Peak to seek fame and fortune or to fight the evil hiding below the mountain. Choose from the Dragonborn Wizard, Human Cleric, Elf Paladin, Half-Orc Rogue, and Dwarf Fighter in this box, or a Hero from the Castle Ravenloft Board Game. The Heroes explore the dungeons below the mountain, find treasure, fight monsters, and uncover mysterious chambers.
With a little help from you, the game chooses the monsters you battle, the encounters you meet, and the halls you explore.
In today’s preview, we wanted to showcase one of the scenarios from Wrath of Ashardalon, including new optional rules unique to this board game.
