What do you think it is?

  • Old zogwort

    The newest incarnation of the never ending dungeon.
    Or a book dedicated at labyrinth dungeons. Who knows

  • JL

    I’m betting they’re doing a new super-dungeon.

  • euansmith

    “You have thirteen hours in which to solve the labyrinth, before your baby brother becomes one of us… forever.”

    Its the David Bowie Tribute Dungeon you never knew you wanted.

      You remind me of the babe

      • euansmith

        That’s an improvement over being mistaken for one of the goblins…

        • zeno666

          Haha!

  • GiftoftheMagi

    This better not be another Forgotten Realms book.

    • Xodis

      All D&D books are set in the Forgottem Realms currently (Even Strahds started there before taking off to Ravenloft), but they usually all have a blurb about using them outside of the Realms as well. Keeps everything on the level for Adventures League.

      • Red_Five_Standing_By

        It is no different than everything being written for the Nentir Vale in 4E or Greyhawk in 3.x. 🙂

        • Xodis

          Oh I agree, it doesn’t take too much to convert everything over usually.

      • zeno666

        Is The Forgotten Realms the default setting for D&D these days?
        I haven’t played D&D since 3rd edition

        • Xodis

          Some might argue otherwise, but yes so far all printed adventures take place in the Forgotten Realm (if only slightly), and the only splat book is based on a specific FR area (the Sword Coast Adventures Guide) with information on how to adapt it to other settings.

      • GiftoftheMagi

        Oh I know. D&D has based itself and most of its product on the Realms since 3rd Ed…which I find vastly irritating. I liked it more when it was campaign-neutral, to better encourage players to develop their own worlds. Ravenloft is STILL only a castle in my campaign (nope, that dimension doesn’t exist for me, and it was originally a Greyhawk adventure).

        Unfortunately, I dislike the Realms. A lot.

  • Xodis

    Hoping this is an “Eye of the Beholder” type of labyrinth that’s a lot more than just a dungeon crawl.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    I would love for it to be a sprawling dungeon campaign.

  • Drew

    I have been playing D&D for most of my life in one form or another, and I love it, but if no character I play ever sets foot in a dungeon again, I will consider myself unbelievably fortunate.

    I find it really funny that the first part of the game’s name is universally synonymous with “boring adventure” for a huge portion of the game’s player base. =)

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      You just need the right kind of DM.
