The adventure is designed for 6th level characters and was designed by Bruce R. Cordell.

Deep in the jungles of Xen'drik, a relic of great power has lain hidden for thousands of years. Now, determined adventurers race against time and the nefarious agents of the Order of the Emerald Claw to locate the relic, overcome unimagined obstacles, and unlock its ancient secret.

"Grasp of the Emerald Claw" may be used as the conclusion to the storyline from "Shadows of the Last War" and "Whispers of the Vampire's Blade" or as a stand-alone adventure for the Dungeons & Dragons game that will immerse your characters in the Eberron campaign setting.
