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.

First, however, they must first discover where the mysterious ship calls home. D&D Adventurers League: Hungry Shadows (Tier 1) Bodies continue pile up, and the Flaming Fist still has nothing but a name.

So how can one group of plucky entrepreneurs distinguish themselves from all the rest…? D&D Acq Inc: The Silver Star (Tier 1) A member of the Silver Sliver has been appointed as interim sheriff of the small boomtown of Delver’s Run, and his openly anti-mercantile views are already making business difficult.

Type: News Author: Shawn Merwin Subtitle: D&D Adventurers League Banner: Text: With today’s official release of Eberron: Rising from the Last War, the countdown to the official launch of the D&D Adventurers League’s Oracle of War campaign has begun. Let’s see what the Oracle’s interpretation of the Draconic Prophecy is telling us about the future. Campaign Launch in Two Weeks On December 2, 2019, the first adventure in the Oracle of War campaign officially releases on the DMs Guild. This adventure, The Night Land, launches the characters on a world-spanning story. The characters begin the Tier 1 “Spoils of War” chapter of the campaign as treasure-seeking scavengers, eking out a rough living by trekking into the Mournland to find lost treasures left behind in the nation of Cyre after it was devastated on the Day of Mourning. On the first Tuesday of each month hereafter, a new adventure will be released, and after a wildly successful preview at Gamehole Con 2019, these adventures are primed and ready to take players into the known and unknown vistas of the Eberron setting. DDAL-EB-01 The Night Land by Shawn Merwin A Tier 1 adventure, optimized for 1st-level characters DDAL-EB-02 Voice in the Machine by Will Doyle A Tier 1 adventure, optimized for 2nd-level characters DDAL-EB-03 Where the Dead Wait by James Introcaso A Tier 1 adventure optimized for 3rd-level characters DDAL-EB-04 The Third Protocol by MT Black A Tier 1 adventure optimized for 4th-level characters Prior to release on the Dungeon Masters Guild, all Tier 1 adventures in the Oracle of War campaign, plus the Tier 1 EPIC, DDEP-EB-01 The Iron Titan, are available for preview at large- and mid-sized conventions and game days. If you would like these adventures at your show, send an email to resource@dndadventurersleague.com with the details of your event and “Eberron Adventures” in the subject line. Tier 2 Story Preview at Winter Fantasy 2020 Winter Fantasy 2020 (running from February 5–9 in Fort Wayne, Indiana) will preview the next three adventures in the Oracle of War campaign. Here’s the Oracle’s prediction of what those adventures, comprising the Tier 2 “Fortunes of War” chapter, might entail: DDAL-EB-05 A Century of Ashes by Bianca Bickford A Tier 2 adventure, optimized for 5th-level characters DDAL-EB-06 The Last Word by Anne Gregersen A Tier 2 adventure, optimized for 6th-level characters DDAL-EB-07 Song of the Sky by Stacey Allan A Tier 2 adventure optimized for 7th-level characters Want to know what happens? You’re going to have to show up to find out. Of course, you can wait for the release in the Dungeon Masters Guild. BEWARE SPOILERS ONLINE! Salvage Bases and Salvage Missions A frequent question voiced by players has been regarding the release rate of campaign adventures. For many players, a once-per-month campaign meets their needs. For those who want to play more often and make Oracle of War their main campaign, we offer the following solution. The Oracle predicts that in early 2020 we’ll see on the DMs Guild a product called Oracle of War: Salvage Bases and Missions. This product provides new campaign options for both players and DMs. Here are some highlights: Players can participate in special adventures called “salvage missions.” While these adventures will not provide treasure or magic items, they will provide unique rewards known as “salvage.” Build and upgrade a custom Salvage Base on the edge of the Mournland. These salvage bases won’t just be usable in salvage missions, they’ll also become important in the Oracle of War’s Core Storyline adventures as well. Salvage base upgrades provide downtime activities and boons that can aid scavengers in all their adventures. Create your own salvage missions. The product contains several premade salvage missions. In addition, DMs can use the guidance provided to create custom salvage missions: bringing their own creativity and personalized storylines to their Oracle of War campaigns. DMs can run their own salvage missions at conventions and game stores without needing approval from campaign staff. Level up if you fall behind. Salvage missions also act as a means for players who have fallen behind in terms of character level to easily catch up to others. Characters completing a salvage mission can choose to gain a level as a reward if they need to catch up with other characters in the group.
