The good folks at Wizards of the Coast have been busy! It's only been a few months since the publishers of the world's greatest roleplaying game released Tasha's Cauldron of Everything, Candlekeep Mysteries, and Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft. If that wasn't enough new material for eager Dungeon Masters and players, Wizards just announced the release of two new D&D books.
D&D Books: The Wild Beyond The Witchlight
Billed as a "wickedly whimsical adventure for Dungeons & Dragons," The Wild Beyond The Witchlight is slated for a September 21 release. The D&D book will bring the Feywild to 5e for the first time and promises new characters, monsters, mechanics and story hooks. More will be revealed at this year's D&D Live 2021 (scheduled to take place on July 16 and 17), but I'm already excited. A Feywild-inspired adventure will make an awesome one-shot or two, or better yet, an entire campaign.
D&D Books: Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos
The second D&D book announcement is for Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos. According to Wizards, the book will be available on November 16 -- just in time for the holidays. Like the Guildmasters' Guide To Ravnica before it, Strixhaven is another book set in a Magic: The Gathering world. More details will be shared at D&D Live 2021, but the book will include new character options, monsters, mechanics and story hooks.
In Case You Missed It: The Rise Of The Virtual Gaming Convention
So there you have it, fellow travelers: two new D&D books to add to your collection this fall. Personally, I know I'll get both books (I'm a sucker for new character options and monsters), but the book I'm looking forward to the most is The Wild Beyond The Witchlight (strictly because of the Feywild setting).
So what do you think? Which D&D book are you most excited about? Share your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below. Keep rolling nat 20s my friends, and don't forget to live each and every day with passion and kindness. Happy adventuring!
