Wizards of the Coast has launched its latest Dungeons & Dragons Encounters campaign, Search for the Diamond Staff, this week.  This season centers on the search for The Diamond Staff of Chomylla, an artifact with the power to unlock the mysteries of an ancient elven civilization.  Orcs steal the staff, however, so now it’s up to a group of heroes to stop them.  The adventure takes characters from levels 4 to 6.   

Designed for weekly in-store play, the D&D Encounters campaign sessions are designed to be run in one to two hours, and encourage new and casual players to jump in on any given week.  This season runs until August 14th.
Like other campaigns since early this year (see "'D&D Next' for 'D&D Encounters'"), this campaign can also be played with D&D Next rules.
