Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation is a turn-based dungeon-crawling game based on the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System board games.
The Adventure System is a cooperative board game series that takes place within the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Your party of heroes work together as a team as you explore, fight monsters, and uncover magic treasure. The game itself runs the traps, events, monsters, and villains.
On the deadly peninsula of Chult, an adventuring party must fight their way through dangerous jungles, labyrinths and dungeons to find and reverse the cause of the death curse. Choose to play as one or more of the four adventurers (Artus Cimber, Asharra, Birdsong, and Dragonbait) to face many perilous challenges and deadly foes throughout the quest.
A former member of the Harpers, Artus Cimber is the keeper of the Ring of Winter. He found the ring in the jungles of Chult, where he also met his wife, Alisanda. His skill with a bow and arrow, as well as with a dagger is unequaled, making him a fearsome ranger. It goes without saying that the Ring of Winter has given Artus powers so strong he can freeze an enemy to death with the touch of a finger.
In Kir Sabal, Asharra is the leader of the Aarakocra community. Others refer to her as Teacher, and revere her as a living saint. Asharra is intelligent, ambitious, and somewhat manipulative, but never cruel or insensitive. Besides her leadership duties, Asharra is a powerful mage capable of handling even the most complex of spells.
Birdsong, a cunning young Tabaxi bard, learned to defend herself while enslaved by the Yuan-Ti. Proficient to play the lute, Birdsong discovered her potential as a bard when witnessing the effect her songs had on other slaves. After her escape, she became one of the greatest minstrels of Chult. She promised herself to, one day, get revenge on the Yuan-Ti who destroyed her village.
Dragonbait is a champion of good and a saurial - a race that originated on a distant world and whose members have long lives. Calm by nature, Dragonbait does not give the image of a dangerous foe, but once in combat, his training and precision makes him a devastating adversary.
