Tequatl Rising

September 17, 2013

It has been gathering power in the depths.

It is faster, stronger, deadlier.

It has returned to devour and destroy.

It is called Tequatl the Sunless… and it has evolved.



  • The Dragon Tequatl – Redefined!

    Something’s gotten into Tequatl the Sunless. This ancient dragon, scourge of the Splintered Coast, has become more formidable than ever, with an arsenal of new attacks and lethal tricks at its disposal. To stop this rampaging beast, you’ll join forces with old friends and new allies in a desperate battle where failure is a very real option. Tequatl has risen – and it will take an army of players to bring it down!
