The New D&D Adventure Is - Tomb of Annihilation!
  • The New D&D Adventure Is - Tomb of Annihilation!


    Tomb of Annihilation is in the Forgotten Realms set in the Lost Continent of Chult - Away from the Sword Coast (the hosts of the live stream are very interested with undead dinosaurs). Acererak is, as many predicted, the source of this plotline as the Archlich is more or less "eating" resurrection magic from the rest of the Forgotten Realms and causing a zombie apocalypse. Pendleton Ward from Adventure Time is a creative consultant on this adventure.



    More updates will be coming through the Dungeons & Dragons marathon live stream live on Twitch throughout the weekend.

      It is Chult. "Lost continent"
      Undead, and dinosaurs. And undead dinosaurs.

      Yup, it is Acererak. Described now as a "lich". The "strongest lich".
      Oh, and the hook of people ressurected are now wasting away.

      So, yup, pretty much all we guessed here over the last couple months...

      It's a great way to introduce a new product.

      So it's two days - twenty-four hours - mostly of live streamed games. They're not playing the adventure per se, but homebrew module being inspired by the adventure.

      Sept 8 and the 19th release.

      "Indiana Jones meets zombies" was the pitch.

      So, they're looting both Isle of Dread and Tomb of Horrors? Cool:

      They should call it: The Lost Island Tomb of Dreadful Horrors. By the time LITDH made it out of anyone's mouth, it'd sound like "Hey, we're gonna play LICH, tonight."

      There will be a "meat grinder mode".
      Harder death saves, no returning from the dead, etc.

      That's a good description.

      So the map of the island has the coast filled in and the players have to adventure in and fill in the rest of the map.

      So it *does* have a small connection to Isle of Dread! One point for me! LOL!

      Kinda...

      Zombies and undead are *really* being played up. And Acererak has a very different a hook, a plan beyond sitting in a tomb trolling adventurers.

      So far, it sounds like Storm King's Thunder, it will be a gazetteer as well as a storyline. A big guide to Chult... plus adventure.

      It's appears Acererak is taking on his form from the DMG cover.

      According to Mearls the book will be like a Gazetteer of Chult with an adventure on top. This is an interesting approach!

      Aaaaand the first live game has begun. So likely no more announcements for a while.

      No news on minis or Neverwinter expansions. Or other support. And no news of the fall hardcover.
