The red dragon Ashardalon -- slain by powerful adventurers in the not-so-distant past -- was legendary for being a collector of many magical trinkets. Some of the most intriguing items have been uncovered in other troves since the dragon’s death and are presented here for your edification. Dive into the hoard of Ashardalon with this Bazaar of the Bizarre.
Few can ignore the legacy of the mighty red dragon Ashardalon. Ancient even by the standards of dragonkind, he was a force for evil in the world. His ferocity and greed was unmatched by any of his kin. Even when the great druid Dydd put down the beast, ending his reign of terror, Ashardalon rose from the ashes of his grave once more, bolstered by his wickedness and by fell pacts made with dread abominations.
