Dare You Challenge a God?

Note: The Demonweb Pits will be available July 18th on all platforms!

With the successful activation of the Realm Engine, the fiendish plot to summon Lolth in the city of Menzoberranzan was averted, and the effects of the ritual contained within Narbondellyn.

Gromph Baenre, the Archmage of Menzoberranzan, has other plans. Noori Baenre has asked for your help to stop her uncle from disrupting the magic that has halted the demon incursion into the city.

In a race to stop the Demonweb Pits from assimilating Menzoberranzan, adventurers will travel to the foot of the Narbondel to stop Gromph and delve deep into the Demonweb Pits itself to stop Lolth from enveloping the world with her chaos.

The Archmage of Menzoberranzan is no fool, however. Believing his brilliance is unmatched and powered by the Mythallar that bathes him with its abyssal magic, he has summoned forth powerful Demons from the Abyss to thwart any attempt at reaching him at the gazebo where he performs rituals for the Narbondel every day.


Commander Sikasila

The demons of the Abyss take on many forms, from the lowly, disfigured manes to the charming but deadly Marilith, a demon with the lower body of a serpent and the torso of a six-armed Amazon warrior. A particularly skilled member of her order, Commander Sikasila dominates the battlefield with her stunning displays of swordsmanship and proves a difficult target when commanding her powerful Mirror Images. Her military prowess has left countless unknown civilizations in ruins.

While defeating this commander is not impossible, more wandering demons await the closer adventurers get to the Narbondel. 

Ahmatot the Shiny

Prior to reaching Gromph, adventurers must contend with Ahmatot the Shiny and the demons that he oversees. This fiend desires all the shinies and will command his minions to make short work of adventurers who dare perturb the Archmage of Menzoberranzan.

Gromph Baenre

Standing stoic at the place where he performs the daily ritual to light the Narbondel, confident that he can deal with any adventurers foolish enough to confront him. Powered with mythallar magic and wielding his great soul-stealing battle axe, Gromph is capable of dispatching his foes by both martial and magical means.

He reserves his greatest magic only for those who can truly challenge him.


To prove worthiness against his mighty magic, adventurers will have to deal with the army of demons that he can call at a whim as well as one of “his finest” from the Abyss.

The Demon Web

With Gromph defeated nothing blocks the path to the Narbondel and the entrance to the Lolth’s Domain, the Demonweb Pits. Will Menzoberranzan be saved or will Lolth extend her domain to the prime material plane, and ensnare Menzoberranzan in her web of chaos? This can only be answered by those who dare dive into the heart of the abyss.
