It’s never too early to get ready for the holiday season, and Dungeons & Dragons has something for all of the imaginative storytellers on your list!
D&D fans young and old will have plenty to celebrate this year, with exciting releases including a new adventure book and accompanying dice set, a coloring book from artist Todd James, a kids’ guide to D&D, and a Special Edition Core Rulebooks Gift Set, with alternate covers designed by Hydro74, housed in a beautiful slipcase.
Now interestingly enough, in addition to the Special Edition covers, they’re also releasing a core book bundle, giving you two options to get someone new into D&D. Interestingly enough though, the Special Edition covers will be available in game stores only. So if you want a copy you’ll have to head down to your favorite core FLGS.
Need a refresh on your well-worn copies? Have a friend who is itching to get into the game? Want a super-handy case to hold all that D&D goodness? The Dungeons & Dragons Core Rules Gift Set includes a copy of all three core rulebooks and a Dungeon Master’s Screen, everything you need to create and play adventures of your own in the world’s greatest roleplaying game.
The D&D Core Rules Gift Set also comes in a limited edition format exclusive to core hobby stores (available October 19), featuring alternative-art covers beautifully illustrated by Hydro74. Use the store locator to find a hobby store near you.
Those of you who took the Observant feat will also notice the ABC’s and 123’s of D&D. As the name implies, these books are aimed at children, offering them a path into the world of Dungeons and Dragons, even as they learn things like ‘how to read’ or ‘object permanence’ (still working on that one myself).
A child can get their first glimpse into the world of Dungeons & Dragons, even as they learn the alphabet, a precursor to every new path in reading.
Teach the alphabet to any early reader as told imaginatively within the world of Dungeons & Dragons. With read-aloud friendly rhyming couplets from Ivan Van Norman and adorable illustrations from Caleb Cleveland, pick up both the ABCs of D&D as well as the 123s of D&D on October 23!
