The holiday season has snuck up on us again and we are here to help ease the pain of finding the perfect Dungeons and Dragons gift! And who could be more challenging than the adventure on your list! Well, don’t worry, we have put together a list of our favorite Wizards of the Coast items that dropped this year. Any of these gifts would be perfect for newly minted travelers or those battle-hardened adventurers! So grab yourself some parchment to keep notes and let’s dive in!
The Wild Beyond the Witchlight
Something wicked this way comes! Once every eight years, the fantastic Witchlight Carnival touches down on your world, bringing joy to one settlement after the next! But there is more to this carnival than meets the eye! It actually serves as a gateway to a fantastic Feywild domain unlike anything found on the Material Plane. Time has not been kind to this realm and unless someone can thwart the schemes of the Hourglass Coven, only darker days lie ahead. This is the perfect gift for new and seasoned adventurers and includes new races, backgrounds and the story can take place in whatever world the DM wants!
Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons
This one is straight from the dragon’s mouth! Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons introduces adventurers to Fizban the Fabulous. The doddering archmage may seem like an unlikely hero, but he is your guide to the mysteries of dragonkind within the worlds of Dungeons and Dragons. This is the perfect gift for those who have always wanted to know the difference between a red dragon and a gold dragon or what dragonsight is! While this one doesn’t include a new campaign, it is packed from beginning to end with new tools and information for designing dragon-themed encounters, adventures and campaigns! It is perfect for the ultimate dragon fan!
Has your player been looking for their next short adventure? We highly suggest picking them up a copy of Candlekeep Mysteries! This book includes 17 stand-alone Dungeons and Dragons adventures designed for characters between levels 1-16. Each adventure begins with the discovery of a book and each book is a key to a door that leads to danger and glory. It is perfect for a short one-shot adventure or to fill a gap in your player’s ongoing campaign. It is also ideal for those trying to get their non-adventuring friends into the game and I promise this will keep them entertained!
Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft
I know the spooky season is over, but it is always spooky season in Barovia! And what better way to help your adventurer celebrate than with a copy of Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft! Terror stalks the nightmare realms of Ravenloft and no one knows this monster better than Rudolph Van Richten! This guide allows the player to create their own Domain of Dread, tips on creating and preparing for a horror-filled adventure and all kinds of information on monsters they might encounter! Players can even use what they learn here to create their own spooky story in their own world! Perfect for the dungeon master looking to branch out a bit!
Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos
While Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos hasn’t dropped just yet, it will be here right before the holidays! So now is the time to preorder this new adventure within Strixhaven University! Drawn from the multiverse of Magic: The Gathering, this new book provides rules for creating characters who are students in one of the five colleges. Players can explore the setting throughout four adventures which can be mixed and matched! The multi-year campaign is filled with scholarly pursuits, campus shenanigans, exciting friendships, hidden dangers and perhaps even a bit of romance.
D&D Core Rules Gift Set
Has your adventurer worn through their copies of The Players Handbook, Monster Manual and Dungeon Master’s Guide? Or are they just a collector of books and unique sets? Well, the D&D Core Rules Gift Set is the perfect gift for them! It includes all three core rule books in a special box set and a Dungeon Master’s Screen! This is everything they will need to get their own adventures started and expand their knowledge of the world! Partner it with any of the books above and your player will be adventuring with their friends and family across continents in no time!
