Tomb of Annihilation
Season 7: Tomb of Annihilation
The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.
When they finally succumb, they can’t be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.
The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.
Release Date: 19 September, 2017
Taking place in Chult means that Season 7 will be Indiana Jones with dinosaurs. The adventurers start in the Port Nyanzaru, where they need to to find a guide, before venturing into the jungles of Chult to locate the tomb.
