I've been searching for officially published adventures containing yuan-ti, but I've only found Tomb of Annihilation and a brief mention in Hoard of the Dragon Queen. Are there any other published adventures with yuan-ti in them?

    \$\begingroup\$ However, I think your question could be made on topic by focusing on officially published adventures that feature Yuan-Ti. Opening it up to homebrew content makes the net much too broad, but limiting the question to "What officially published adventures feature Yuan-Ti?" should be on topic here, as it is less "recommend an adventure to me" and more about making observations about a well-defined list of adventures. \$\endgroup\$ Jan 10, 2022 at 18:41

    \$\begingroup\$ @Ren Are you interested in officially published adventures from D&D editions outside of the current edition (5e)? Whether 'yes' or 'no', I think that would be worth clarifying. \$\endgroup\$

1 Answer 1


Yuan-Ti are featured in some capacity in the following adventures:

  • Tomb of Annihilation
  • Rise of Tiamat
  • Candlekeep Mysteries: "Book of Cylinders"
  • Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage
  • Storm King's Thunder
  • Hoard of the Dragon Queen
  • Storm Lord's Wrath
  • Tales from the Yawning Portal
    • "The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan"
    • "Dead in Thay"

Obviously not every adventure has the same level of interest in Yuan-Ti, Tomb of Annihilation seems to have more engagement with Yuan-Ti than any other adventure.

I obtained this list using the DND Beyond phone app. It allows you to search all installed content for any search term and returns a complete list of results. I happen to have every book installed in my phone, so searching "Yuan" yielded every appearance of the word in the D&D 5e corpus. From here, it was a matter of checking results from adventures for relevancy and providing the list.

  • \$\begingroup\$ It may be worth noting that D&D Beyond also has a website – but the website's search results can't be filtered by book, and it looks like it only returns up to the first 35 results (so it's impossible to tell whether there are additional results beyond that list). I know the app lets you search within an individual book; can you do that if you don't own the book (I'm guessing not)? \$\endgroup\$
