I crit!
Here is alternate cover.

What is that tattoo? Or scar? or what?

But the portrait doesn't match the mini in any other way.

I crit!
Vorpal sword, baby!

So, there is a definite surrealist fantasy vibe going on here, namedropping Lewis Carrol even...
I ran Tomb of Horrors one time in 5e. Before the book came out from WotC with the 5e version.

A player asked if he could have the Vorpal Sword. I said roll me a d20. Bang! Crit! So yea, he gets it.

First session, first combat, his character went first, first d20 roll of the game. Bang! Crit! Confirm? Bang! Crit! Bye bye demon.

He never critted again that whole game.
 

All the mini labels from the Beadle and Grimm page:

Hags:
Skabatha Nightshade
Bavlorna Brightshaw
Endelyn Moongrave

Named NPCs:
Jingle Jangle
Cradlefall the Green Wyrmling
Lamorna (Unicorn)
Tumblestrum & Groak
Agdon Longscarf (Harengon)

Creatures:
Peryton
Giant Snail
The Jabberwock
Fomorian
Korred
Bullywug Guard
Harengon Brigand
Briggenock Miner With Mustache

EDIT: Just remembered that Tomb of Annihilation had a grung named King Groak, curiously same as Tumblestrum's familiar.

Well, that pig-nosed kobold-like thing with the miner's pick seen in the released artwork would seem to be a briggenock then...

Actually, if you open up that image on their website, the name is Zybilna.

Interestingly, that tattoo on her cheek? The one that I'm calling a "chicken's foot"? It's the same tattoo depicted on the Tasha/Iggwilv cover art for TCoE.

View attachment 140745

So, either Zybilna (who we already know is the Archfey in charge of Prismeer) is also Tasha (also Iggwilv). Or, they both have the same tattoo in the same place, because Zybilna was also raised by or otherwise connected to Baba Yaga (the tattoo is her symbol, a chicken foot).

In my view, the tattoo being the exact same in the same place is probably more than coincidental, so I'm in the Tasha = Iggwilv = Zibylna.

If that's the case... maybe these Domains of Delight really are mirrors of Domains of Dread, in that their lords are also prisoners. Tasha's done plenty of horrible things to merit the Feywild mists trying to keep her imprisoned. Also, does this mean Tasha has ascended to being an Archfey? Is that even possible?

These are the three hags, and their names, of the Hourglass Coven (using the image URLs).

Skabatha may also be the same Granny Nightshade from Greyhawk, or maybe just a coincidence. Which I don't believe in!

Yeah, this certainly seems to be indicating that something very weird is up here.

Hard to believe in coincidence when we have so many references to 80's material incoming. It strikes me that maybe "Zybilna" has some former compatriots or enemies.from Oerth who hunted her down...

My guess – thanks to the Jabberwock mini and IIRC them mentioning Lewis Carroll as an influence – is that Zybilna is some kind of a mirror clone / alternate version of Tasha. I think the white hair – the opposite of Tasha's dark hair – is hinting at that. So as @darjr was implying, there might be some influences from The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror (EX2).

The only hitch in that theory is that traditionally in D&D your mirror clone is of an opposite alignment. Zybilna is definitely portrayed as evil in Van Richten's Guide. And despite Jeremy Crawford mentioning Tasha being "whatever alignment suits her at the moment" in a Dragon Talk, she's pretty much always been an evil NPC.

Well, Iggwilv has always been evil, but Tasha is a bit closer to neutral (with evil tendencies), at least in the Cauldron of Everything portrayal. I do agree though, she's definitely more evil than good.

Yeah, that was a change from prior depictions, a bit more nuanced.

Same character though, right? Tasha/Iggwilv are just aliases she uses?

It's not like Tasha is a separate personality/consciousness, right? Asking cause I'm not sure.

With those exorbitant prices on any B&G product... hard pass for me
Exorbitant? Really?
Better come with its own circus tent and a keg of beer for that price. Same.
Considering what is in each box…these are both a good deal. 500$ may be out of reach for most of us, but that doesn’t make it not worth it’s price. And the silver edition is what, 2 1/2 times the MSRP price of a normal D&D book? I’d say the silver edition is well worth the cost of 3 books. The platinum box pushes it a little, but not much.

Nearly every bullet point is worth 20-60 bucks individually, if not more (high quality maps like what they put in are not cheap, nor are the bigger high quality minis).
So, either Zybilna (who we already know is the Archfey in charge of Prismeer) is also Tasha (also Iggwilv). Or, they both have the same tattoo in the same place, because Zybilna was also raised by or otherwise connected to Baba Yaga (the tattoo is her symbol, a chicken foot).

I really hope they aren’t making the Feywild into a mirror Ravenloft. For butts sake just let things be different from eachother…
