The Demonweb Pits are now open in Neverwinter. This is the 26th module of the game and tasks adventures to challenge none other than Lolth, the goddess of the drow. To save the city of Menzoberranzan, they'll need to drive her out of the Material Plane.

For the first time ever in-game, adventurers get to explore a new adventure zone known as Narbondellyn. Here, they get to learn more about the House Fey-Branche, a powerful house of Menzoberranzan. This new module also introduces a challenging Demonweb Pits dungeon, which features an epic battle versus Lolth. There are also challenging hunts across Menzoberranzan. This module signals the end of the Menzoberranzan story arc.

The Demons Have Arrived

After the events of Menzoberranzan, the Archmage Gromph Baenre has finally recovered his lost demon summoning tome known as Zhaun'ol'leal. The Archmage is going over the ancient texts looking for a way to get access to the Demonweb Pits, the domain of Lolth within the Abyss. This resulted in materializing a spell that fractured under its own weight which connected the Demonweb Pits to the Material Plane. Thus, the demons and Lolth can now step into the Underdark.

To save Menzoberranzan, adventurers need to team up with the Sorcere mage Noori, cousin to the Archmage. They'll need to seal the rift and send Lolth back to the Abyss.
