Planescape 5 New D&D Books Coming in 2023 -- Including Planescape!

At today's Wizards Presents event, hosts Jimmy Wong, Ginny Di, and Sydnee Goodman announced the 2023 line-up of D&D books, which featured something old, something new, and an expansion of a fan favorite.

The first of the five books, Keys from the Golden Vault, will arrive in winter 2023. At Tuesday's press preview, Chris Perkins, Game Design Architect for D&D, described it as “Ocean’s Eleven meets D&D” and an anthology of short adventures revolving around heists, which can be dropped into existing campaigns.

In Spring 2023, giants get a sourcebook just like their traditional rivals, the dragons, did in Fizban's Treasury of Dragons. Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants will be a deep dive into hill, frost, fire, cloud, and storm giants, plus much more.

Summer 2023 will have two releases. The Book of Many Things is a collection of creatures, locations, and other player-facing goodies related to that most famous D&D magic item, the Deck of Many Things. Then “Phandelver Campaign” will expand the popular Lost Mine of Phandelver from the D&D Starter Set into a full campaign tinged with cosmic horror.

And then last, but certainly not least, in Fall 2023, WotC revives another classic D&D setting – Planescape. Just like Spelljammer: Adventures in Space, Planescape will be presented as a three-book set containing a setting guide, bestiary, and adventure campaign in a slipcase. Despite the Spelljammer comparison they did not confirm whether it would also contain a DM screen.

More information on these five titles will be released when we get closer to them in date.

I've been burned by Chris Perkins marketing blurbs too many times before. Yet I remain hopeful we will see some actual heists in this book......
 




As I posted about the giants book in the main reveal thread (where it will get lost in the flood of other things), so, getting way ahead of myself, now that we have a giants book following Fizban's, what group will be next, assuming they continue the series? Aberrations? Fey? Fiends?

I'm so glad they're doing this book. I wasn't happy how such a large and varied group as giants were stuffed into Volo's, and thought the variants in that book were just too esoteric; so much so that I created dozens of variants and posted them here! They also missed on giant-kin and giant-adjacent monsters like ogres and trolls. It will be nice to see giants get the full Fizban's treatment...

Any or all of those would be cool, but I expect the undead to get the next nod.

Well, in 2023 I will be looking at Planescape before deciding whether to buy it or not. I don't feel I got my money's worth out of Spelljammer.
How many hours of enjoyment do you expect per dollar in order to get your "money's worth"? I tend to value mine at about $5/hour -- the same I pay for a movie in the theater. So I would expect the $65 Spelljamemr set (which i didn't buy, to be clear) should provide at least 13 hours of entertainment for me (and, presumably, my book). In truth with D&D stuff it requires more than that because i usually have to buy whatever it is for Fantasy grounds as well.
