D&D: Check Out This Massive Replica Of The Yawning Portal Inn

Last year, WizKids unveiled plans to deliver a multipart replica of the Yawning Portal tavern–and they’ve just shown off a massive new model.

The Yawning Portal has been the site of many an adventuring career’s beginning. Situated deep in the confines of Waterdeep, the Yawning Portal sits above Undermountain, a world-renown dungeon that is full of both danger and more danger. Built by a wizard who is magically bound to it (but who insists on roaming the multiverse, even going to Earth, around the year 2017), Undermountain has claimed more than its fair share of lives. But it’s also given up more than its fair share of riches.

And demons only come up from the depths on occasion. So, the tavern, minded by Durnan, who is also an immortal barkeep, the Tavern spins on, heedless of the world outside its walls. It’s a place for adventurers to swap stories and share a respite from their personal matters. It’s not exactly a World’s End kind of situation, but it’s close enough.

And now WizKids has unveiled their new replica of it. They have pulled out all the stops for this replica, turning it into a cutaway model of the famous tavern, inspired by many illustrations–including this one:

But they’ve fitted the bar’s eponymous portal with wiring for the new LED lights. Perhaps they intend to frighten away the ghost of so many years ago with a little illumination. Or perhaps they just want it to look cool and ominous. Either way, this miniature will set you back $349.99, making it one of the more expensive miniatures out there. Especially considering how the Yawning Portal typically isn’t where you have your adventures, so much as start them off.

If you want a display piece for your favorite miniatures when they’re not on the battlefield, though, it’s a pretty cool entry. Here’s what it comes with:
