Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, or D&D5e, is the fifth revision of the original roleplaying game. The system was published in 2014 by Wizards of the Coast, an American company that produces games such as Magic: The Gathering and Monopoly. It’s designed to be relatively easy to learn. Some fans have seen the 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons as the system that would be easier to learn than previous editions and appeal to younger players. This comes after the game’s popularity reached new heights during the early 2000s with games such as Dungeons and Dragons: The Movie and its cartoon versions. Some fans even refer to it as “fifth edition” since this was how Wizards of the Coast originally described it when they released an update in 2013.

The Princes of the Apocalypse supplement Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition, written by James Wyatt, Rob McCreary, Chris Sims, and Sam Riegel. Describing itself as “a dark campaign story set in a world where death rules overall,” it follows 4 and overall as they battle to free their land from the tyranny of Death Man. The book comprises 13 chapters following the adventures of 4 distinct groups- 2 adventurers & 1 wizard each- all with unique backstories that culminate in them fighting Death Man himself.
The book begins with the prologue, the first-person narrative of Death Man, as he starts to destroy the land. The story progresses to the point where Death Man has captured one of the PCs and is extracting information from them. After this, Chapter 1 opens with a short narration by Death Man and then switches to an aside by War Master, saying that he is unhappy with his current fate as a prisoner of Death Man. The chapter continues to tie in the previous Prologues narrative.
Chapter 2 opens with a narration of Shaede Blackhart, a necromancer who was given control of his clan by his mother when she was pregnant. The narration is presented in an analog format, giving the reader some insight into Shaede. In this chapter, we also see the PCs being recruited into being a part of the army of Death Man. The story progresses as Death Man’s army travels through the lands, with him trying to find more “Recruits” for his army. The chapter ends with them discovering a new land that is hidden underground.
Chapter 3 shows the PCs entering into an ancient city and meeting a hooded stranger who introduces himself as Nick Shadow. He recruits them to be scouts for Death Man, and their first task is to explore a nearby cave and locate rooms for occupation by Death Man’s army. The scouts explore a cave and discover a group of kobolds who used to inhabit the cave but have been driven away. They also find a strange spherical object, which the DM could use as an ancient magic item, or it could be used as a symbol of Death Man’s power.
