D&D 5E Rebalanced Tyranny of Dragons Coming In January

According to Amazon a 'rebalanced' version of Tyranny of Dragons is being released by WotC in January. There's no indication if there's a new cover, but the "adventure has been rebalanced to be easier for a new Dungeon Master to run and a better play experience".

2019's Tyranny of Dragons combined 2014's Hoard of the Dragon Queen and The Rise of Tiamat with errata and new cover art. It was originally produced for WotC by Kobold Press during the early period of 5E when adventures were outsourced to local companies run by ex-WotC employees, such as Kobold Press, Green Ronin and Sasquatch Game Studios. This will be the third version of these adventures.

Tyranny of Dragons combines and refines two action-packed Dungeons & Dragons adventures—Hoard of the Dragon Queen and The Rise of Tiamat—into a single sweeping campaign. It also includes a gallery of concept art providing a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of an epic adventure spotlighting Tiamat, one of the most legendary foes in D&D.

  • A wonderful re-introduction to 5th edition’s first published adventures for new fans
  • Begins as a low-level adventure suitable for new players and evolves into an epic, sprawling campaign bringing players all the way from level 1 to level 15
  • Adventure has been rebalanced to be easier for a new Dungeon Master to run and a better play experience.
  • Book includes gallery of concept art spotlighting Tiamat, one of the most legendary foes in D&D

This seems to be a re-release of the previous combo release, with another round of errata and maybe even other edits.

Which also tells me that WotC is very confident that 2024 DnD will be backwards compatible. There's no need to spend so many resources to release a very old product without compatibility
Yep.

In contrast, when 4e was winding down, they put out a few things they already had ready, running 4e on a skeleton crew while getting ready for the Next playtest.

They have stuff coming out late 2023 that are gonna be pre-reprint. The plan is that Xanathar’s, Tasha’s, Fizban’s, Bigby’s, Book of Many Things, and all the setting books, and all the stuff in the adventures, will be compatible with the new core books.

The latest print they did with both parts of the adventure with the nifty new cover already had the pretty nice gallery of concept art at the end (spoiler: its pretty awesome). As someone who loves sketch art, I wish it was the type of art we see in regular books (Princes of the Apocalypse also had a gallery at the end).
