D&D 5E Check Out Wild Beyond the Witchlight's Back Cover & Text

Wild Beyond the Witchlight now has a back cover, complete with product text! The adventure is for levels 1-8, and features a poster map.

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. It's owners, Mister Witch and Mister Light, know how to put on a good show. But there's more to this magical extravaganza than meets the eye!

The carnival is a gateway to a fantastic Feywild domain unlike anything found on the Material Plane. Time has not been kind to this realm, however, and the dark days lie ahead unless someone can thwart the dastardly schemes of the Hourglass Coven.

The Wild Beyond the Witchlight takes adventureres from the Witchlight Carnival to Prismeer, a Feywild domain of delight. This book comes with a poster map that shows the carnival on one side and the Prismeer on the other.

Back on topic (why are y'all debating lawyers), I'm curious about these "Domains of Delight." It seems like an effort to make the Feywild and Shadowfel true symmetrical reflections of each other, so the Domains of Delight are reflections of the Domains of Dread.

Some questions I have;

  • Do these Feywild Domains have a counterpart of Darklords, like a Bright Lord? Would they be Archfey, or something else?
  • Are there Dark Powers (or Bright Powers) in the Feywild?
  • Are Domains of Delight the opposite of Dread Domains, being carefree dreams of folks where people can leave when they choose? Or are they also dangerous, and people are mostly trapped when they enter?
  • Are there as many Domains of Delight as there are Domains of Dread (meaning, a lot)?
  • Are the Domains of Delight reflections of Domains of Dread, meaning there is a Fewild version of Barovia? Or are they unique places on their own?

I suspect that Domains of Delight are not truly mirrors of the Domains of Dread (ie there isn't a Feywild version of Barovia) however I do think it is possible they mimic some characteristics, like drawing in regions of the Material Plane and turning them into Domains of Delight. Whether they have Bright Lords, or some other characteristics to make them unique, I'd be very curious to learn! Prismeer sounds like the first of perhaps many.
Going by VGR, Prismeer is the domain of an evil archfey called Zybilna. I doubt she is a prisoner though.

Meh!
Sounds like a ripoff of WoW's Darkmoon Faire with Papa Shango thrown in on the cover. Not A T A L L what I imagine the Feywild should be. Way too modern...

Should gone with split personality of Godfather/Goodfather. It would have been more Fey like.
 




They put out Dungeon of the Mad Mage years ago now. Based on what they've said, there is not much of a market for high level material, not just because most people only play up to mid-level, but most people who do play high level are DIYers who don't necessarily buy books (per Perkins).
Surprised considering how much excessive prep time is needed to make high level adventures yourself, I'd much rather make lower level ones myself since it's quicker, safer, and easier and would prefer to purchase adventure books of high level material to avoid all the prep time and just jump right into it with my players.

Few theories:

-It's basically only experienced, devoted groups who make it to high level.
-Long-running campaigns have too much baggage to be able to easily insert pre-made adventures into. Team Dragon Slayers has the artifacts of Shine Style that will let them bypass a certain category of obstacle, the villain Lord Feather Pantyhose is established as having a lair made of chocolate cake and their minion army is made up of specifically archons and giant badgers plus there's 4 long running B plotlines with their own specific details that have to be fit in as well.

This sounds pretty good to me. Definitely on the "check it out when it hits the Barnes and Noble I go to" level.

My theory: high level abilities and spells are so powerful that create a plot is truly difficult, at least to satisfy my idea of narrative elegance.
