Four characters are the size of the ideal party. If your group is smaller, consider removing a few opponents from fighting. If the group is larger, consider the competition. Consider changing the meeting for smaller groups to avoid extreme fights.
The Rise of Tiamat is set in the Sword Coast locale of the Forgotten Realm s—a slight piece of human progress extending down Faerun’s western shore. The generally divided urban communities of the Sword Coast are orchestrated on a solitary incredible street like dots on a string. The street passes by a few names as it twists more than 2,000 miles from Luskan in the north to Calimport in the south, going through Neverwinter, Waterdeep, Baldur’s Gate, and other incredible ports en route. The principal volume of Tyranny of Dragons occurred generally on the stretch between Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter. This subsequent volume takes the swashbucklers farther abroad over the Sword Coast, setting them up for the last confrontation against the workers of Tiamat.
