The city of Sharn bakes in the grip of an intense heat wave. For most citizens, the temperature is nothing more than an annoyance. The scholars of the city know the heat is a sign of something more -- Fernia, the plane of fire, has drawn near. For one insane sorcerer, the heat is a sign that his revenge is at hand as he prepares to drown the city in a lake of fire.
"Pit of the Fire Lord" is an Eberron adventure designed for four 8th-level characters, scalable for levels 6-9. This adventure is the final part of the Shards of Eberron Campaign Arc, which originally appeared as the D&D Open adventure at Gen Con Indy 2004. While the story follows "Crypt of the Crimson Starts" in Dungeon #123 and "Temple of the Scorpion God" in Dungeon #124, it is also easy to run as a stand-alone adventure.
