King Azoun IV has rewarded you for recovering the Golden Chalice of Kurast and in turn saving the life of his daughter with a castle and lands in the north east of Faerun known as Winterkeep. Upon arriving at your new home you are met by an emissary sent by Open Lord: Piergeiron the Paladinson who informs you that the High Lords of Waterdeep need your help to defeat the King of Shadows and save Faerun.

In order to defeat the King of Shadows and save Faerun you will need to persuade the many different regions of Faerun to join together and fight under the one banner. The main storyline quests revolve around you doing this and culminate in you entering the fortress of The King of Shadows to find and defeat him. As you do this you will encounter in excess of 175 quests.

  • Storyline Quests - 47 quests and epic boss battles.
  • Side Quests - in excess of 130 side quests that provide you with equipment, items and fame amongst the people of Faerun.
  • Epic Scenery - custom made map with biomes of breath taking beauty.
  • Amazing Cities & Towns - every building has been hand furnished by a team of dedicated builders.
  • And a whole lot more!

From the bitter, windswept steppes of the Endless Waste to the storm-lashed cliffs of the Sword Coast stretches a wide, wild land of shining kingdoms and primal wilderness, Faerun is only one continent of the world known as Toril. Other lands lie in distant corners of the world, but Faerun is the centre of it all, the crossroads and crux upon which all else turns. Dozens of nations, hundreds of city-states, and countless tribes, villages, and settlements dot its expanse.


The continent of Faerun is a landmass of approximately nine and a half million square miles, located mainly in the northern hemisphere of the world of Toril. Sub-arctic extremes chill its northern reaches, where ice sheets like the Great Glacier dominate the landscape in blinding white. To the south are the equatorial jungles of Chult and the tropical coasts of Halruaa. It’s bordered on the west by the Trackless Sea and on the east by the Endless Wastes and the Hordelands that separate it from Kara-Tur.



Faerun is an open land full of kingdoms and empires, large and small, and scattered city-states and villages struggling to make their way in a landscape that can be unforgiving wilderness one mile and cosmopolitan city the next.

Countless millions of humans, elves, dwarves, halflings, and other sentient beings call Faerun home. It is a land of magic and intrigue, cruel violence and divine compassion, where gods have ascended and died, and millennia of warfare and conquests have shaped dozens of unique cultures.

In order to get the best possible experience from playing The King of Shadows the following are the key points to note:
  • Resource Pack - use the resource pack included in the download (when downloaded from our site)
  • Single/Multi Player - ensure cheats are enabled if playing a single game and all players are OP'd if playing in multi-player
  • Game Settings - when you press the button at the start it sets all of these for you

undefined

To allow all of the features in the game to work, portals, signs etc you will need to be either opped if playing a multi-player game or switch to LAN and cheats enabled if playing a single player game. If you don't do this the quest system and other key features of the map will not work. In other words, if you don't do this you might as well stop playing the adventure!

Anywhere I can get help for this gameplay wise? Just found this and I am playing it with my son but sadly when we got to waterdeep my quest advanced but his didn't as his client crashed.

I just noticed on the forums that the "Sigil of Fear" was delayed until 2019. Bummer. But at least I can re-play all the other maps until then :D
