  8. Related products: D&D Starter Set Player's Handbook Dungeon Master's Guide Monster Manual Inline blocks: Stay Informed Dragon+ Author: Matthew Mercer/Wizards RPG Team Synopsis: Create your own Critical Role campaigns with this sourcebook for the world's greatest roleplaying game! Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount provides everything you need to play Dungeons & Dragons on the continent of Wildemount (set within the world of Exandria)—a land of war, betrayal, and swashbuckling adventure. Comprised of four regions, Wildemount provides endless potential for adventure in a land of brewing conflict and incredible magic. Rising tensions boil over into all-out war between the politically dubious Dwendalian Empire and the light-worshiping wastefolk of Xhorhas, supplying a vibrant backdrop for any D&D campaign to explore. Uncover a trove of new options usable in any D&D game, featuring subclasses, spells, magic items, monsters, and more, rooted in the adventures of Critical Role—such as Vestiges of Divergence and the possibility manipulating magic of dunamancy. Start a campaign in any of Wildemount’s regions using a variety of introductory adventures, dozens of regional plot seeds, and the heroic chronicle system—a way to create character backstories rooted in Wildemount. Explore every corner of Wildemount and discover mysteries revealed for the first time by Critical Role Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer. Where can I buy it? Pre-order at your local game store, book stores such as Barnes & Noble, or online at retailers like Amazon. Also available for pre-order at D&D Beyond and Fantasy Grounds. Description: This book’s contents include the following: An expansive Wildemount gazetteer. Descriptions of the major factions of Wildemount. Player options that include new subclasses, new spells, and a tool to help players deeply integrate their characters into the setting. New magic items, including weapons that become more powerful to match their wielders. New creatures native to Wildemount. Four introductory adventures—one for each unique region of Wildemount. Largely written and helmed by Matthew Mercer, the Dungeon Master of Critical Role and creator of the world of Exandria, this 304-page book features work by talented designers, writers, and artists from the D&D and Critical Role communities. Explorer's Guide to Wildemount is an expansive, vivid campaign setting anyone can enjoy regardless of their familiarity with Critical Role, and an open invitation to make the mysteries and dangers of Wildemount your own.
