Screen Shot 2021-09-16 at 10.16.30 PM.png


From September 23-26, the D&D community comes together for D&D Celebration – a weekend celebrating the release of The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, and previewing Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons (Oct 19) and Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos (Nov 16)!

The first official D&D musical? The cast of Star Trek: Discovery rolling the d20s? This year’s D&D Celebration will offer fans a front row seat to watch all that and more as hilarious Dungeon Masters lead adventures in a slate of side-splitting virtual games including:

- Disco Does D&D
o Cast members from Star Trek: Discovery Anthony Rapp, Mary Wisemann, Blu del Barrio, Ian Alexander, and special guest Wil Wheaton, play D&D with Noah Averbach-Katz at the helm as DM

- The Circus of Sound – a D&D Musical
o The long-awaited D&D musical event starring Anthony Rapp, Jason Charles Miller, Azie Dungey, Vico Ortiz, and Mariah Rose Faith with Kelly Lynne D’Angelo as DM

- The Slapstick Hunt: A Silly Chase
o DM Amy Vorpahl leads cast members from The Guild, Sandeep Parikh, Vince Caso, Robin Thorsen, Amy Okuda, and Jeff Lewis on a comedic adventure through the multiverse

- The Dungeon & The Dragon
o An unlikely band of monsters are assembled to help a wronged dragon track down the heroes who stole her hoard with Alicia Marie, Deborah Ann Woll, Todd Stashwick, Patrick Rothfuss, and Matthew Lillard playing as monsters and B. Dave Walters as DM

- The Great Dragon Tourney
o Get ready for a tourney unlike any other featuring dragon jousting, racing, and diplomacy starring Anna Prosser, Mica Burton, Nathan Sharp, Jonathan Indovino, and Kate Welch (in an extra-special role) with Mark Hulmes as DM

The weekend will close with a look to the future of the brand with the Future of D&D panel hosted by D&D’s own Liz Schuh, Ray Winninger, Chris Perkins, and Jeremy Crawford.

They did an hour long panel with Schuh and Winninger last year. Should be interesting, as they probably have a better handle on their path forward this year than they did in 2020 with Winninger just starting.
Indeed! I'm also wondering if they will break from tradition and make some announcements for things more than 3-4 months out during this panel. Or at the very least, mention what the two classic settings and the setting revision will be.

It wouldn't be crazy, though they do have two upcoming books that they might want to keep highlighted.

They did do the Eberron teaser announcement a bit early, about 6 months in advance (in May for a November release, if I remember correctly), so it wouldn't be unprecedented. A quick "Planescape is coming in early 2022!" or the like would definitely end things with a bang like Eberron did for a similar weekend event...

That's a point, and Perkins is lead on the first mystery Setting...

And thus WOTC continues to promote Critical Role: The Board Game (formerly known as Dungeons & Dragons). Let’s highlight the game as scripted and rules don’t matter as long as the ratings are good. All the while losing their core audience in an attempt to woo Twitter. Maybe that is why Hasbro has been shopping it around for a buyer before the Seattle ideology gets out and infects the rest of the company.

Let’s highlight the game as pre-scripted and rules don’t matter as long as the ratings are good. All the while losing their core audience in an attempt to woo Twitter. Maybe that is why Hasbro has been shopping it around for a buyer before the Seattle mindset gets out and infects the rest of the company.

''Losing their core audience''?

The game never had so many players and the core of the audience is younger players brought, in part, by social media and streaming.

I thought the rumours of Hasbro selling WotC were just that hollow rumours do you have evidence they aren't,'t.
