We got some pretty exciting news on the dungeons and dragons front today. Wizards of the Coast has officially announced the upcoming D&D Live 2019: The Descent which will take place in LA on May 17,18, and 19. Similar to last year’s award-winning Stream of Many Eyes, this will be an immersive entertainment experience to help players learn about the upcoming story line. The weekend will be full of sneak-peaks at upcoming products, musical performances, tons of unique giveaways and obviously tons of dice rolling.
On top of two full days of dungeons and dragons game play, we will also see two groups take on the new story line in front of a live audience. Players Matthew Lillard, Mica Burton, Anna Prosser, Patrick Rothfuss will join dungeon masters Chris Perkins, Jeremy Crawford, and Kate Welch as they help explore the new story line and show off some pretty awesome features. While we don’t know who else will be joining this amazing group, I have a few ideas. I would be thrilled to see Deborah Ann Woll get a chance to dungeon master again this year.
Tickets for the event will go on sale April 9th at 10 am PST. There are only a limited number available to make sure to get them early! The three day badge includes some pretty awesome perks including a sweet swag bag and advance copy of The Ghosts of Saltmarsh, an interactive world where you can mingle with shop keeps inspired by the new storyline, plus live dungeons and dragons play to enjoy. Not to mention Chris Funk from The Decemberists has put together a rock concert to help close the fun filled weekend out.
You can keep up with new announcements on their website here as well as a full breakdown of the weekends events. Also for those who can not attend live, you can join in for the fun by watching the dungeons and dragons twitch channel starting at 4pm pst on Friday May 17th. Don’t forget to use #DnDLive2019 to help share the fun!
