Cover of The Sinister Spire

The Sinister Spire

The waters of a sunless sea meet a pebble-strewn shore, beyond which opens a wide Underdark vista shimmering with pale cave-light. Titanic columns as big as castles march miles into the misted distance. The wide, steeply sloping base of the nearest colossal column is carved with streets, walls, and elaborate structures, many with gaping, empty windows. A few glimmer with faint illumination.

Are you brave enough to explore the spire-city and face the terrors that lurk within?

Part 2 of the Barrow of the Forgotten King series. Followed by Fortress of the Yuan-ti.

skerbgs has played this adventure and would recommend it.

While I didn't use most of the adventure, namely the final dungeon and single largest piece of content in the book, the city itself is clearly the star of the show in this module. Several factions all vying for control with just enough detail for you to fill in the rest and make it your own. No connection to the previous module is needed, just drop it in whenever you need an underdark city. An important NPC the players will inevitably meet can hook them into the plot of the book while trading favors with the PCs.
