New Gothic D&D Storyline To Be Announced On Monday

I've heard from various sources that WotC will be announcing the new storyline on Monday. They've apparently seeded various promotional images to several websites. I don't know any more than that, but if I hear anything, I'll let you know. The below image was apparently sent to The Escapist. Make of it what you will! Looks to me like vampires and ... Ravenloft? (Though if it's not set in the Forgotten Realms, that'd be uncharacteristic.)

And Geek & Sundry was sent this piece:

Those are definitely fang marks on the left side of her neck, in the shadow of her chin.
All those Ravenloft rumors seem to have substance now.

Skullport beholders.

"Skullport

Skullport is a city that lies more than a mile beneath Waterdeep. Skullport is a lawless place of slave traders, pirates, and demi-humans, where illithids, drow, beholders and other less savory creatures traffic with merchants and buccaneers from the surface. This settlement was detailed in the 1999 supplement Skulldeep, written by Joseph Wolf."

Yup, both images look like the Ravenloft exclusive gypsy race, the Vistanti. I wonder if classic NPCs such as Dr. Van Ritchen or Lady Weathermay (I think that was her name) or Azlun the lich will make appearances?

After all, Drizzt was supposed to be in Out of the Abyss, but it was only Bruneor Battlehammer who showed up in that AP.

The Escapist describes the top image as a picture from a Tarokka card. It's Ravenloft.
Nah, I have the Tarokka deck - used it 'bout a year ago in fact - and that's not the same art style. But still pretty Mists-like.

Clarification: "Storyline" here means, "a series of modules released through the Adventurers' Leage", correct? - I am terribly out of the loop when it comes to 5e.

Not my thing at all raven loft, but I know there is a lot of fans out there. So hopefully it is up to expectations, I'll stick with The Blight, which looks a tad darker than what raven loft was (i have the box set and module) . Still I may get surprised by its awesomeness :)

It means a series of D&D related products with a common theme, including an adventure path book and AL modules, and possibly board games, videogames and more.
