Welcome to the 19th volume of Dimgaard's 5th edition adventures. Thanks for the consideration. If you want to see what a Dimgaard adventure module looks like, here is a sample (the first episode of this volume's DGA6 Tyranny in Purple): http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/215238/TP1-Tribute-Time.
In this volume we begin a new 21 episode adventure: DGA6 Tyranny in Purple. We present Episodes TP1 through TP4, which takes PCs from 1st through 4th level. The town of Chogneaux was subjugated when the Tofarians swept out of the Dragon Teeth and grabbed northeastern Dimgaard, but the additional quota of slaves added to this year's tribute is too much for Chogneaux's citizens. The story eventually takes the PCs deep into the Tofarian Empire, and opens up a previously unknown vast cavern system under the Dragon Teeth (the Dimgaard allegory to the Underdark). The action continues in the city of Odill, and then transitions to the remote, frozen north of Dimgaard.
The ongoing Dimgaard campaign is continuous and after many months of play the PCs are 19th level. DGC18 The Bleak War resolves sovereignty over the area of the Bleak Lands (a region in the Abyss) between the final two contenders (Graz'zt and Azots). There's an unexpected attack, a siege, a breakout, and a final stroke.
There is also an encounter gallery. It currently has four entries: Intellect Devourers, Cambions, Ghost Hunters, and Gold Dragon crusaders. And there is the supplement Life Cleric CR0-20.
Here are the summaries of the modules:

DGC18 The Bleak War
DG80 The Dark Lord's Offensive: The gambit to eliminate the ruler of Baator from the contest for the Bleak Lands was a success.

Where is Fey Secrets?
Fey Secrets continues, but is on hiatus. There were interruptions this past month so there is no installment here, but it will resume where it left off last month in Volume XX (with Episode thirteen). The first eight episodes are now part of the What the Heck backer level.
Risks and challenges
While the modules are complete, we do a final review before distribution. We try to do this in a seamless and timely matter, but Vol XIV was delayed a week. It was a combination of a problem that was realized late, and the distraction of the holidays. I expect to avoid such delays in the future, but it is a risk.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
