D&D: 4 New Products Spotted on the Horizon

Four new D&D Products have been spotted, details are few, but here’s a look at 2018.

Now, up front I wanna say these are Codenames only. Spotted on a Canadian Book Sellers’ upcoming catalog list, four new D&D Products: one 192-page accessory, two 256-page adventures, and a set of themed dice related to one of the adventures.

Now, given what we know about 2018 from their panel at Game Hole Con this seems to track pretty well. The accessory is likely another supplement, maybe where we’ll see the Mystic and Artificer reappear. We know Wizards will be playtesting them again fairly soon, and considering that we were seeing revised versions of the subclasses in Xanathar’s Guide as late as June with a September release, that lanes enough time to get them ready, depending on where in the cycle the classes are at present.

Seeing two big adventures so close to each other is a little unusual. But, at the Game Hole Con panel they did mention wanting to try an adventure that wielded independently but was still connected with other supplements–and we’ve sort of seen a baby version of that with the supplemental materials for Tomb of Annihilation on the DMs Guild.

If I had to speculate wildly, I’d say maybe some kind of plane-related supplement. We know that they’ve been looking at other settings as well as Mind Flayers with relation to psionics. But, as for what the adventures could be, I’m at a loss. Rumor on the Internet says The Great Modron March, and I want to believe, but, we’ll have to keep snooping.

What do you think these mystery books will be?

  • Paul Reynes

    would be nice if they bring back or rehash Die Vecna Die!… or Greyhawk. would be nice to not be in the Realms

    • BrianDavion

      or if they’re going to do the realms finally give us a PROPER 5th edition FRCS

  • Vepr

    I would also like to see Greyhawk updated and supported for 5th. I prefer home brew and I have nothing against Forgotten Realms but Greyhawk would be a nice alternative. I think there are rumors out there about Eberron but I was never a big fan of that setting.

    • BrianDavion

      as it is even the realms has gotten less support then it should. be nice to see a proper FRCS for 5th edition. some of us who like the realms want to play in other parts of it

    • Kabal1te

      The problem is that Wizards of the coast lacks the rights to Greyhawk. My understanding is Arneson’s estate still has partial rights and hasn’t allowed wizards of the coast touch the setting since living Greyhawk went over so poorly.

    Broadway… Dragonlance? 🙂

    • Fenix Dargon

      We can only hope.

  • Calarax

    Probably something to do with lost tales of myth drannor I would assume
