Confrontation at Candlekeep is a Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition playtest module that was released to RPGA Dungeon Masters at Gen Con Indy 2013. It was released publicly over two years later as a PDF download for a modest fee.

Acting as a prequel to Ed Greenwood's The Herald novel, Ed was consulted in the module's creation.


A cult of Asmodeus, led by one of his Chosen, assaults Candlekeep after managing to deactivate some of the fortress' wards. Their aim is to obtain a spell scroll created in ages past by their master that was hidden in the vaults of Candlekeep by Mystra herself to prevent its abuse.
