D&D 5E In Scarlet Flames/The Hidden Page: 2 of 5 Free D&D Adventures from WotC

The first was In Scarlet Flames.

Two Red Wizards of Thay have undertaken a secret mission into the High Moors east of the Sword Coast. They are searching for something or someone. Whatever their goal out there in the cold and windswept hills, if the Red Wizards want to keep it secret then it is probably best uncovered swiftly for the good of everyone else. Even the mercenaries who escorted them into the wilderness earlier agree: someone should stop them.

Pursuing the Red Wizards leads the adventurers to a barrow mound in the wild grasses of the High Moors. At the barrow, they discover the remnants of a wizards' sanctum still being plundered. The fate of its lore and treasures is up to the characters. Without caution, things may get out of hand.

This Dungeons & Dragons adventure is written to suit four to six characters of 8th level. With this text and the core D&D manuals, you have everything you need to play. You may also benefit from the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide to learn more about the High Moors of Faerûn.

The second is The Hidden Page.

Decades ago, a wizard named Sylvene came to the Sword Coast from another plane of existence called Ravnica. While exploring Waterdeep and nearby lands, she met and fell in love with the father of her child. She built a refuge for them in a small demiplane of her own creation, but eventually she went home to Ravnica with her infant son and never returned.

Now her grandson seeks to recover relics of her power by exploring Sylvene's history in the Realms—and he doesn't care who he hurts along the way. The consequences of his careless pillaging already ripple out to impact others.

These look like fun. If the goal is to ease people into D&D, it might have been good to include pregens.

"Decades ago, a wizard named Sylvene came to the Sword Coast from another plane of existence called Ravnica. "

Is this the first official crossover lorewise/storywise between the D&D Multiverse (proper) and the M:tG Multiverse?
This is questionable "official" since they seem to be providing plausibly deniability in case people don't like it, while leaving their options open if people do like it.

But for this level of "official"...no, Acquisitions Incorporated visited Ravnica, and hung out with Vi, the Gnome Artificer from Eberron.

I remember when Eberron 5E came out that J. Crawford or somebody explained that M:tG is part of the D&D Multiverse. So that was a bit of cosmological "crossover" lore (but no story).

Still, that's not many story cross-overs so far.

I think the D&D team has a number of pregens in the Reaources section of the website, at a number of levels.
I'm struck by how much their pregen character sheets deviate from the standard 5e character sheets they've published and released online.

Some create a monster-esque stat block for the PC, with elaboration of more lengthy class or race features below.

These ones from Magic: the Gathering organize what you can do by action economy & put spells right on the first page.

I guess their ideas are evolving about information accessibility?

For starters, I'm totally surprised that none of these Planeswalker pcs have the Planeswalker planeshift rule/ability from the Planeshift article, Amonkeht. (IIRC, the rule is in there.)

Also, secondly, Mowu looks more like an Akita than a Mastiff.

carry on.

It's interesting (at least to me) that those 10th level character have basically no magic items, except for the rogue who has 4 +1 weapons and the sorcerer who has an elemental shard. I'm not sure if the pyromancer's robe are a magical item.
