What do you think when you hear the words “steampunk” and “Dungeons & Dragons” together? What about “noir” and “Dungeons & Dragons”? If your mind immediately goes to campaign ideas for high-stakes train heists, detective rogues with trench coats, and magical technology, then you’re going to love what’s happening on DMs Guild this month.
When Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos hits shelves on November 16, it will be missing any trace of the shared subclasses seen in a recent Unearthed Arcana playtest. Fans apparently had a very strong reaction to the idea of subclasses that can be used by multiple different classes.
Many Dungeons & Dragons players want more official high-level content, but it doesn’t look like Wizards of the Coast plans to grant that wish anytime soon. In a recent press conference, D&D head Ray Winninger said that the design team is not putting focus on campaigns set in the highest player levels.
Wizards of the Coast revealed new details about what players can expect from the upcoming hardcover adventure Wild Beyond the Witchlight. When the book releases on September 21, players will find a level 1-8 adventure, two new backgrounds and races, the return of classic 1980s D&D characters, and peaceful solutions to every encounter.
