Get a look at the upcoming D&D Storyline through a live day of streaming, coming June 2nd and 3rd.
Hot off the Website–those Wizards will be coming off the Coast and dipping into a stream. And if that joke made you Twitch, you’ve just figured out where you can go to see all the latest D&D News.
Quick, everyone jump into the statue’s mouth, the jokes will end then.
Join Wizards of the Coast for an event called Stream of Annihilation (and why their Twitch Channel isn’t called Wizards of the Stream is beyond me. Like it’s right there. Wizards, that one’s free–you’re welcome.) where they will be bringing “D&D Luminaries and Streamers” together for two days jam-packed with new reveals, streamed games, and, more importantly a preview of what the upcoming storyline for D&D will be come September.
Each group of streamers will reveal a portion of the new information, so be sure and stay tuned–we’ll be offering live coverage of the event itself once June rolls around. Read on for more info though. I’m curious to see what the new storyline is going to look like myself. The last big one was Storm King’s Thunder, which was touted as “Like King Lear, but also with Giants and Zhentarim.”
And with the news that it’ll be out in September, that makes it the likeliest candidate for the mysterious DUST that was making the rounds on the web a while back.
Now the rumors I’ve heard are that it will be centered around the Feywild–and we know that Adventure Time’s own Pendleton Ward has been working on “a future story” with the D&D team. That seems like the perfect chocolate & peanut butter combo right there–but time alone will tell.
Now, granted, that tweet was from back in 2015–which means that after the dev cycle, edits, and all the timing could be right. Stay tuned June 2nd and 3rd for more info as it develops, but in the meantime, read on for more about the event itself.

The Stream of Annihilation [is] two full days of streaming that D&D fans won’t want to miss. We’ll have folks from Misscliks, Maze Arcana, Critical Role, and Dice, Camera, Action! with Chris Perkins, not to mention international gaming groups like Yogscast’s HighRollers (U.K.) and Dragon Friends (Australia).
Kicking off at 10am on both June 2nd and 3rd, hosts Anna Prosser Robinson and Kelly Link will talk to the Wizards of the Coast D&D team and learn all about our next exciting storyline coming in September. Then each group of streamers will play or share a sample of what to expect from the campaigns they’ll be running over the summer that preview the new D&D story. There will be multiple live games, interviews, new product unveils and improvised hilarity each day, starting at 10am PT and ending at 10pm each night. You’ll get introduced to the High Rollers crew delving into uncharted territory DMed by Mark Hulmes, a new Misscliks show investigating rumors called Risen, two weekly groups from our friends Satine Phoenix and Ruty Rutenberg at Maze Arcana, a new group of L.A. actors called Girls Guts Glory, and more!
Throughout the Stream of Annihilation, we’ll drop details on our expanded D&D Twitch programming, new accessories fans have been clamoring for coming later this year, and amazing board games and products from our partners. You’ll hear from Cryptic Studios about plans for Neverwinter, Curse Media for D&D Beyond, as well as WizKids, Gale Force 9, Fantasy Grounds, Roll20, and more. Plus, like any Dungeon Master worth their salt, we have a few exciting surprises to pull from our bags of holding!
Although, you have to wonder about the wisdom of stepping into an *anything* of Annihilation.
