“Loose Threads” is a 5e Dungeons & Dragons campaign.

The adventure began when the heroes were called upon by a beleaguered Arasys to break the enchantment holding the settlement of Ravenscar in stasis. After successfully freeing Ravenscar, the adventurers were persuaded by the Bramble Queen to journey into the Underdark.

Dox led the party to scout a drow city-settlement (possibly Menzoberranzen) before the group got caught up in a larger conflict between demon lords. The heroes agreed to help free the myconid city of Darude from Zuggtmoy’s influence–but ultimately defended her from her rival Juiblex.

After slaying the Faceless Lord, the heroes made good their infiltration of the drow settlement, confronted Dox’s long-sought foe–the drow demigod, and brother of the Lady of the Well–and slew him in combat. They inadvertently resurrected Lolth and left the Underdark to be divided among a half-dozen demon lords.
