Out of the Abyss: Longer Description and pre-order price reduction

Out of the Abyss has been available for pre-order on Amazon for a while. John Carney pointed out to me that the product description is a little longer than the sentence that was there when I last looked at it back in May. The pre-order price seems to have dropped to $34.33, too, down from $49.95. The 256 page hardcover is due for release September 15th, 2015, and was produced for WotC by Green Ronin Publishing.

"Dare to descend into the Underdark in this adventure for the world’s greatest roleplaying game

The Underdark is a subterranean wonderland, a vast and twisted labyrinth where fear reigns. It is the home of horrific monsters that have never seen the light of day. It is here that the dark elf Gromph Baenre, Archmage of Menzoberranzan, casts a foul spell meant to ignite a magical energy that suffuses the Underdark and tears open portals to the demonic Abyss. What steps through surprises even him, and from that moment on, the insanity that pervades the Underdark escalates and threatens to shake the Forgotten Realms to its foundations. Stop the madness before it consumes you!

A Dungeons & Dragons® adventure for characters of levels 1–15"

I'm looking forward to it. Hoard of the Dragon Queen and its sequel are good, I think, and I'm even more optimistic for this one. I like the long level arc that it offers, too.

The thing that excites me: The chances we'll get a nice Gargantuan Demogorgon figure sometime this fall...

Well, that was enough for me. Just pre-ordered on Amazon.
Me too!

I think Rise of Tiamat is technically the sequel to Hoard of the Dragon Queen, whereas Princes of the Apocalypse is a separate product. If this is at least half as good as PotA, it will be great, because PotA is really outstanding overall, I think.

I know - I was referring to RoT implicitly in my use of word "sequel." :)
 
Aaaand possibly with psionics too...(cross posted from Psionics flavor thread):

If this tweet means what we all know it probably means, we'll know soon, i'd bet in September, what Psionics will be like...

Sorry if it has been posted already! Basically: why Psionics are not mentioned in yesterday Survey regarding all classes to be updated?

Really looking forward to this one, the last two have been very much "over-ground" scenarios and there hasn't really been an long underground "dungeon" yet in a 5e published adventure.

Or, it could be we're getting an Unearthed Arcana in the next 3-6 months.

Wow, I didnt realize that Green Ronin was publishing this. Aren't they known to produce some of the most amazing table-top products in the industry??

While Princes of the Apocalypse does have a lot of overland; it does essentially have a very large underground dungeon, as (for the most part) all the key dungeons are connected. It's not presented that way, but it could easily be run that way.

"Publishing" is one of the few things they're actually not doing with this book. :)

But, yes, they have a long record of success, with particular hits being the Freeport series, Mutants & Masterminds, and the Dragon Age RPG. WotC have chosen a good partner for this one.
