CCC-YLRA01-03 Bound By Duty


A 4-hour adventure for 5th-10th level characters (optimized for 8th level characters).

Civil disorder threatens to throw the leaderless town of Ylraphon into chaos. You find respite from this political strife when the Chiang Emporium hires you for an escort mission. The task: sail south to accompany a Chiang Emporium envoy on a return voyage to Ylraphon, where her wedding is to take place upon her arrival. The voyage is perilous, but not nearly as complicated as what awaits when you finally make it back to town.

* In addition to taking place in Ylraphon and the Dragon Reach, this adventure includes a sidebar about the city of Tantras in the nation of Vesperin!

This adventure is part three of the "Whispers Over Ylraphon" series, which follows up on events from the Elemental Evil storyline and other past D&D Adventurers League seasons. It originally debuted at Orccon 2017. Orccon is a Strategicon convention, Southern California's largest tabletop gaming events hosted triannually on Presidents' Day Weekend, Memorial Day Weekend, and Labor Day Weekend. Find out more at

"Whispers Over Ylraphon" begins in CCC-YLRA01-01 Her Dying Wish and CCC-YLRA01-02 Uneasy Lies the Head, although the adventures can be played in any order. The story continues in future adventures premiering at Strategicon conventions in 2017 and beyond.

Something's wrong with Sebastian Emberstar’s Tasks. On p.9 he asks you to get a trinket and prevent anything happening to the wedding.
In the players handout 2 it states that he wants Fan Yi Zhong protected instead of the recovery of the trinket.
On p.32 only mention him worrying about Yi Zong again.
This is probably something leftover from a change in the adventure while developing it. Which should be Embestar's mission?

I see a mention of YLRA01-04, Down in Flames, referenced. Any timetable for that module being released on DMs Guild? My players have enjoyed the first 2 parts of this series and I'm sure they'll love this one too (about to run it). Great work to everyone involved in their creation!

I was just curious if there was any update, on the next adventure? Also, what tier will it be? I'm finishing up the trilogy tomorrow tonight and was just curious. My table has enjoyed these adventures.

Does it come with a cert to give out to a player?

Sweet! Should I wait and buy it later or will I be able to download it at a later date after it's been uploaded

Thanks a lot!. Although, I can't seem to 'redownload' it to get the cert file without being asked to pay again. Is this expected? -- I'm new to redownloading an updated file that doesn't show up on the updated lists.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
