and their allies are threatening the Sword Coast and
the North, but why now, and to what end? Tiamat, the
queen of evil dragons, has languished in the Nine Hells
for millennia. The evil Cult of the Dragon believes
that the time of her return is at hand. To accomplish
its goal, the cult needs five ancient dragon masks and
the support of evil dragons everywhere. Meanwhile, evil
dragons in cahoots with the cult seek to amass a treasure
hoard worthy of their dark queen by stealing money from
cities, caravans, good dragons, merchant ships, and
situation is dire. However, the Sword Coast is far from
defenseless. Powerful factions are ready to rise up
and put an end to the tyranny of dragons. Adventurers
throughout the Realms must join forces to face Tiamat,
destroy the Cult of the Dragon, and prevent the rise
of a new dragon empire. In their hands, the future lies.

comic book panels illustrate the plot on an enormous movie
screen. This multimedia, retro extravaganza has been featured
on NPR, PBS and Conan O'Brien.
