  1. 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.

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.

D&D Acq Inc: A Night at the Theater (Tier 1) Omin Dran has learned of Portentia Dran’s diabolical scheme to taint the name and reputation of Acquisitions Incorporated—a play which is to be performed at Portentia’s conference for new, potential, and repeat customers she calls DranFest.

D&D Acq Inc: Pound of Flesh (Tier 1) A follow up experience to D&D Acq Inc: The Side Hustle. D&D Acq Inc: Side Hustle (Tier 1) The city of Waterdeep is a hub for adventure and commerce alike, and wide-eyed would-be heroes swarm its streets in search of fortune and fame.

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.

  13. 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.

In honor of the original release year of Dungeons & Dragons, 1974 sets of this custom-crafted treasure will be available to the public for this special occasion. “When the D&D team realized the sapphire is the traditional anniversary stone for both five years and forty-five years, and that adding a laboratory-created sapphire to a twenty-sided die wouldn’t jeopardize the integrity of a roll, we couldn’t pass up the chance to make something really cool to celebrate the milestones” said Nathan Stewart, VP of the D&D Franchise at Wizards of the Coast. “The team put together a fun product for our fans that includes art and newly updated stats for sapphire dragons, making these classic dragons ready for play in your next D&D session.” The D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set: Collector’s Limited Edition is a fantastic way to commemorate forty-five years of lasting friendships fueled by stories of imagination and adventure.

The centerpiece of the set is a dice masterpiece, a d20 that contains an inlaid lab-grown sapphire in the place of the twenty. This piece will be the jewel of your set! All other dice sport a fully engraved and anodized official D&D ampersand on the highest value of each die. Added Features: A custom dice box and dice tray combo only available with this set, perfect for protecting and showcasing the set everywhere you play.

Description: */ D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set Dice FAQ Q: How durable and balanced is the d20 housing the lab-grown sapphire? A: The d20 features a lab grown sapphire anchored through a revolutionary design process guaranteeing the stability of the stone within the surface of the dice. Level Up Dice completely redesigned the entire d20—from internal balance to all 20 sides—to not only fit the custom-designed gemstone securely but to maintain precision balance for rolling. By working with the laboratory over a 6-month period, we created a unique, never-before-made shape and design of the sapphire to guarantee a perfect fit and balance. The end result is a never-before-seen creation: a balanced aluminum D20 containing a custom lab-grown sapphire. The 6063 grade aluminum used in the dice is highly durable—it is the same grade used in airplane construction and other industrial purposes. Q: How are the D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Sets constructed? A: Each die is created using CNC machines from billets of aluminum alloy, 6063. Using the 6063 grade allows for more complex shapes, and a bright and durable anodized finish while using the CNC mills gives us the most precisely weighted dice at 99.5% precision rate. Once each individual die is cut, it is then engraved to maintain perfect balance. The dice have been tumble-tested for durability at over 5,000 rolls. Anodization: “Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish.” We utilize Hard Anodization, which also increases hardness and wear resistance. CNC Mills: CNC mills allow for pre-programmed machines to cut the dice to a 99.5% precision and then allow for complex designs and numbering that can be created on each individual face of the die. Using “computer numerical control” overrides human error during the machining process. Q: How are the D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set dice balanced? A: The dice have been custom designed for optimal balance, with the engraving process of each side machined to counterbalance the added weight of the sapphire. The result is a balanced dice that will give you perfect rolls, all while maintaining their sparkle! For the remainder of the set, our proprietary CnC machining is applied to maintain our standard 99.5% precision with every roll, based on the center of gravity balance. Q: How large is the lab-grown sapphire? A: The total mass of the custom shaped, lab-grown sapphire is 1.43 carats, which includes the internal portion that was designed for balance and durability. Q: What is the best way to use and care for the D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set? A: Although the aluminum is very light, we recommend using a rolling tray such as the one provided with your set to protect your table and the dice. For general care, a polishing cloth (such as one used on glasses) can be used to remove fingerprints from handling.

Imagine being cradled in the arms of death for years, sometimes decades on end, but all the while knowing you will eventually not only arise again, but possibly awaken to an unfamiliar world. Now imagine that your purpose, your entire existence, is bound within this cycle — that you are chained to it for eternity. You sleep, you wake, your serve your Judge’s will in the lands of the living, and you return to the death-sleep once more. The ancient culture that empowered you is gone, lost to the sands of time…yet you endure. In Mummy: The Curse Second Edition, you play one of these beings. Those who know they exist, from the cultists who serve them to the dark forces arrayed against them, call them the Deathless. We call them mummies. This Mummy: The Curse Second Edition Kickstarter is designed to enable us to create a hardcover edition designed to match the look and feel of our other Chronicles of Darkness core rulebooks such as Vampire: The Requiem, Werewolf: The Forsaken, or Changeling: The Lost. We want to create an 8.5″ x 11″ hardcover with a beautifully designed, striking cover image printed on a metallic under layer, and featuring an emboss/deboss of the logo. We also want to get at least one print run into traditional distribution and available for sale at game and hobby stores. Join the Arisen on Kickstarter now!

  24. Trouble on the Steel Pier: A Dystopia Rising: Evolution Jumpstart, our first release for Dystopia Rising: Evolution, is now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG! The jumpstart includes an introductory adventure, taking you characters through the Big A.C., and a collection of ready-made characters to get everyone started. Below is a preview of one of those characters: Rocket Rose Strain: Diesel Jock Rocket Rose is loud, bold, and bright, and her clothing reflects her personality. Some of her earliest memories are of travelling the open roads with her Diesel Jock clan. When Rose was nearly killed by Raiders as a teenager, her family staged a rescue. When they learned that the injury to her spine meant she would never walk on her own again, her father sank all the resources he could spare into making sure she had what she needed to keep going. Rose spent the rest of her youth driving her tricked out rig, retrofitted so that she could smoothly work the controls. When she’s not driving, she relies on a neon green wheelchair or leg braces to get around. Absolutely fearless, Rose took up driving solo cargo runs to make some extra money. After returning from one of these trips, she learned her brother had met a nice local boy and settled down with him, giving up life on the road. Disgusted that he’d chosen an outsider over the clan, Rose took off on her own, travelling from town to town, entering every race and rally she could find. It was at one of these rallies that Rose spotted a captivatingly charming Vegasian girl named Talia O’Nines. Talia’s crew needed a ride west, and Rose’s business was on the road anyway, so she offered them a ride. She’s been running with the crew ever since.
