Tales from Candlekeep – Tomb of Annihilation is out now. Explore Chult, but mind the dinos, zombies, and zombie dinos.
The peninsula of Chult is finally accessible via the digital realm. All you have to do is hop on the ol’ Information Superhighway, fire up your modem (we recommend at least 28.8 k) and get ready to surf into Cyberspace where you’ll navigate the netscape to the lands of Faerun. And once there it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump to the forgotten jungles of Chult, which are littered with forgotten (geo)cities, ancient ruins full of traps, and at least one angel fire.
You can read about it all on my Livejournal, which is still around against all odds. At any rate, Tales from Candlekeep is available now, and is thoroughly modern, despite being littered with the antiquities of forgotten Ubtao. The game itself is based on the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System board games like Wrath of Ashardalon or the Temple of Elemental Evil Board game–essentially you play one of a set of premade characters and go on a dungeon delve. Only here it looks like they’ve beefed it up since they’ve got quests you can solve, special characters, even a procedurally generated map.
Of particular interest are some of the familiar faces–like Artus “I’ve got the ring of Winter and you don’t” Cimber, adventurer extraordinaire, who has been on the run since Storm King’s Thunder. This game is a ton of fun, and you can grab it for 15% off between now and the 18th. So check it out!
