Vor Rukoth is a supplement that details the tiefling city of Vor Rukoth for use as an adventure site. It was designed by Greg Bilsland and released in July 2010 and is stated to be suitable for characters of levels 1–15.

Blurb

Once the gem of the tiefling empire of Bael Turath, Vor Rukoth fell into ruin and was lost. Now rediscovered, the ancient city draws heroes and villains to its shattered streets in search of treasure. Monsters and intrigue abound in this cursed place, protecting its deepest secrets. Visitors must tread softly, lest they invoke the wrath of Vor Rukoth's undead lord, Queen Najala.

If you're a Dungeon Master looking for an exciting adventure location that fits easily into your DUNGEONS & DRAGONS campaign, this book is for you. It features dozens of adventure hooks, a variety of unique items and threats, and a full-color, double-sided battle map. In it you'll find threats for adventures from 5th to 15th level, making Vor Rukoth a location that characters can visit again and again.

Summary

Vor Rukoth details the ruins of the ancient tiefling city of the fallen Bael Turath empire. It is not designed as a quest but rather an adventure site that can be weaved into existing games. It comes with pre-made encounters, details about factions and their key members, details about Vor Rukoth's history, hazards, lore, and even a nearby settlement, Coyote's Refuge.

Product

Vor Rukoth comes in a folder that doubles as a black-and-white map. Inside is a double-sided poster map featuring a ruined town and a dungeon. The map has a width of 28 squares (76 cm) and a length of 19 squares (54 cm) (length and width in cm include a border) and the map is in full color.

Whilst the cover illustration was created by Matt Stawicki the interior illustrations are by Warren Mahy.

Reception

Vor Rukoth has received both negative and positive reviews.

Baz Stevens from rpgtreehouse gave a fairly negative review, stating "I can't help but think it needed condensing, developing and distilling so that a merely ok sourcebook could potentially be a decent adventure."[1]

Aaron R from Phelanar's Den gave a positive review, complimenting the openness and lack of statements that demand elements to be certain ways. The only criticism was with the folder cover, saying "I honestly don't like how the cover isn't attached. It makes transporting or storing the entire thing feel messy, for lack of a better term."[2]
