Stream of Many Eyes to reveal new D&D Adventure!
The title and theme of the book has been released and its a doozy. Waterdeep Dragon Heist.
Original PostOne of the things that is making the current surge in popularity in D&D versus different than in the 80s is the online shows devoted to it, the actors, and scene around it. There are not legitimate D&D celebrities. This is very different than nerds collecting in dark rooms and basements and playing where no one could see. There is a boldness, and really infects everything about D&D right now. People who play D&D are proud, they wear t-shirts about it, post it on Instagram and even talk about it at work. The differences are very pronounced and its even changing how a D&D book is launched.
D&D's next adventure is going to be revealed at an event that feels like Apple Product Unvieling, or a cool comic con panel. The company is going to bring out their experts and the celebrity players like Force Grey and Critical Role. I honestly have not fully processed exactly what this cultural shift means, but generally I think its good. I think people today are getting more and more disconnected and D&D is a great way to connect with people in a very human way.
They have not released much about this new adventure but you can watch the "Stream of Many Eyes" on their Twitch channel starting on Friday 4pm PT. You can also buy tickets and join the event in LA.
Another book is also coming out later this month in Mordenkanens Tome of Foes.
