Gale Force 9 have a new line of accessories and models coming out over the next few months to supplement the Princes of the Apocalypse adventure.
Four apocalyptic cults of Elemental Evil are building secret sanctuaries and outposts throughout the North, bringing terror and destruction to the Forgotten Realms. Each cult is devoted to one of the Princes of Elemental Evil (godlike entities embodying air, earth, fire, and water) and is led by a nihilistic prophet, corrupted by power. The cruel elf princess Aerisi Kalinoth speaks for the air Cult of the Howling Hatred, while Marlos Urnrayle, a fierce male medusa, leads the Cult of the Black Earth. The Cult of the Eternal Flame scars its followers at the behest of the beautiful and deadly tiefling Vanifer, and the mutilated sailor Gar Shatterkeel plots to drown the world with his Cult of the Crushing Wave.
The cults use devastation orbs, forged of raw elemental power, to ravage Faerûn with horrifying earthquakes, typhoons, tornados, and other disasters. Independently, the cults are terrible adversaries, but now they have secretly begun transforming a long-lost dungeon into a huge subterranean temple dedicated to an alien entity known as the Elder Elemental Eye.
To prevent this union of the Elemental Evils into one catastrophic force, heroes must expose the prophets’ true agenda. The cults’ agents are everywhere and their power is immense. When you don’t know whom to trust, knowledge is your only weapon. Unearth the Deception
When the adventure is released on April 7th, you will be able to get two accessory products. The first is the Dungeon Master screen. Featuring beautiful artwork from the Elemental Evil storyline, this DM screen includes adventure-specific information in a format with which many of you will now be familiar.
With the rise of the elemental powers, the world will also see new magic emerging and a selection of new spells, all of which can be found in the new Elemental Evil Spell Deck. These elemental spell cards have their own unique visual look, as well as a visual reference for the class that can add them to their spell books. This makes this deck very versatile.
As well as the new spells, this pack will also include the errant cards from the Paladin and Arcane deck to make them available to everyone. If you get the new pack and don’t need these extra cards, check with your gaming party – I am sure you will find a player willing to take them off your hands. Don’t make them work too hard for this, as a favour later is always better than a party member out for a little revenge.
