(Editor's Note: The event close and end dates have been updated since publication.)

Welcome to the Yawning Portal!

For the brave adventurers of Waterdeep, this tavern is the entrance to the infamous dungeon of Undermountain, where the Mad Mage Halaster Blackcloak made his lair. For a modest fee, you can be lowered into the dungeon to try your luck and seek your fortune!

If you choose to venture down the well, you'll face all manner of foes—and maybe find a few allies along the way, to boot. Each time you complete a run of this event, you'll win rulebook card styles from Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, representing some of the creatures you may have encountered along the way. You'll get new card styles each time until you've collected the whole set. (If you'd rather let others do your dirty work, then feel free to hire some adventurers to do the exploring for you! Simply join the event and resign, and you'll still collect card styles without ever leaving the comfort of the tavern.)

Event starts: July 30, 2021, 8 a.m. PT
Entries close: August 10, 2021, 2:30 a.m. PT
