Those who have read (and/or watched) my Waterdeep: Dragon Heist review know that I was a bit miffed that there was no actual heist. Thankfully the DMs Guild is here to set things straight.

Handful of Heists” features five 3rd level mini-adventures that fit perfectly within Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, or any urban setting of your campaign.

Khaless, level 5 Half-Drow Assassin Rogue
Gillian, level 5 Triton Bard of Whispers
George, level 5 Tortle Battle Master Fighter/Rogue
Therin, level 5 Hill Dwarf Druid of the Moon

With one pirate captain defeated and the ship captured, the party could interrogate the surviving crew (namely the first mate, Mad Kalita). They learned the specific location of the pirates’ secret hideout, Jahaka Anchorage, as well as the guard shift tactics the pirates used.

Armed with about half a plan, the party used the Dragonfang to draw in close to the Anchorage and deal with the second pirate ship, the Emerald Eye, before infiltrating the pirate base.

Tier 4 content (levels 16-20) on the DMs Guild isn’t exactly common. High level adventures are exceedingly difficult to balance, and are often the culmination of years-long campaigns rather than a self-contained adventure.

Mirrors of the Abyss” tackles a high level adventure with an excessively detailed deathtrap dungeon in an abyssal domain run by a vulpine demon woman named Eshebala. Think “Tomb of Horrors” but with a lot more personality, a la carte chambered dungeon design, and over 260 pages of detailed information and beautiful original artwork.

Therin, level 5 Hill Dwarf Druid of the Moon

Note: Reese and Rachelle couldn’t make this week’s session. Gillian was played by Chris (Mannix) and Therin was played by Heather (Khaless).

When the party first arrived at Chult via ship, they were stopped by a marauding pirate crew. The ship was turned down, the crew robbed, and the party could do little more than hide and watch. Now, however, they are far stronger. When another pirate captain tries to do the same, they’re prepared to fight back.
