You have freed 800 refugees from the depths of Pax Tharkas, but now the armies of the dragon highmaster Verminaard pursue you through the wilderness. There is only one hope for you: Find the gates to Thorbardin, the ancient kingdom of the mountain dwarves, sealed long ago in the Dwarfgate War. The problem is that nobody knows where it is, or if it still exists! Through the snow-covered Kharolis Mountains, across the Dergoth Plain, haunted by the ghosts of ancient armies, and to the incredible mountain known as Skullcap, you search for the answer that will save the refugees of Pax Tharkas—and yourself!

Plot Summary[edit]

In Dragons of Hope, the player characters' (PC) objective is to help the freed prisoners from Pax Tharkas escape a draconian army and then to assist them in finding Thorbardin, the ancient home of the mountain dwarves. To do so, the player characters must first find the key to Thorbardin, which is hidden in the lair of an ancient wizard. The adventure starts with the players freeing 800 refugees from Pax Tharkas, who are subsequently pursued through the wilderness by Verminaard's army. The players must then lead their characters through the snow-capped Kharolis Mountains, across the Dergoth plains towards Skullcap, and ultimately to Thorbardin.The module contains special rules and challenges in each particular region in order for the PCs to successfully reach their goal of leading the refugees to safety. Bonus experience points are available to players depending on how many refugees they manage to lead to safety
