Second Dungeons & Dragons Product for Fall 2018: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage

Wizards of the Coast announced the second product for Fall 2018, Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage.


A video promotion from D&D Beyond (linked below) aired at the end of the Saturday events on the "Stream of Many Eyes" and was uploaded to YouTube shortly after. The book will be a megadungeon that runs from Level 6-20 that details 23 different levels to Undermountain each with their own feel and theme, along with a full detailing of Skullport. It's stated in the video that running the module with weekly sessions will take at least eight months. Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage will be out November 13, 2018, with an MSRP of $49.95.

This is the second product announced during the "Stream of Many Eyes" event on the Dungeons & Dragons Twitch channel. The event will continue on Sunday with celebrity games and potentially more product announcements from third-party companies like Gale Force Nine. The first product announced, Waterdeep: Dragon Heist (along with a special dice set), were announced on Friday, June 1.

Pssst... Not everyone can.
This.

And also publishing stuff related to your own campaign setting is explicitly prohibited on dmsguild (you can do it through OGL, but you lose access to anything not included in 5.1 SRD).

So, wotc locks unsupported settings on dmsguild and bars you from developing your own setting on dmsguild. A total waste of positive energies, for me.

Pssst... You can make up your own stories and settings.
If some other setting was getting all the love you'd be seeing fans of Forgotten Realms complaining. And they'd have a point. But instead you dismiss those who want to have 5e material available to them either from WotC or from DMs Guild.

To take your comment to its logical conclusion, WotC should not make adventures at all because "you can make up your own settings and stories." Would you be equally happy with 5e if it had no official adventures at all? Your statement says you would be.

Is that some kind of Beholder Demi-lich in the background? Shades of Acererak!

So with the drow, seems like this has to something to with that beholder eye artifact folks were speculating about?

Anyways, this looks good.

I ran that motley mix of Greyhawk, Known World, and Mystara modules in "Greg's World" all through high school and never thought to a) use the settings on the cover, or b) complain about the name of the setting on the cover.

Also, the only thing more mind-blowing than the amount of IP Wizards has opened up for commercial use on DM's Guild is the amount of complaints about what they haven't opened up.

Anyone looking for life advice from me? Try less hard to be unhappy.

That's not necessarily everyone as it's also credited to "Wizards RPG Team" so probably Perkins, Mearls, Crawford, and/or Welch had their hands in it. When they credit it to the team, we usually don't get a full designer list until we can see the actual credit page from the book.

You are totally right.

Thanks Publisher for having published a setting and a half in the last four years. We deserve no more.

Thanks Publisher for locking settings you don't care about from independent developing. We could ruin them with our childish and horrible ideas.

Thanks Publisher for producing 5E products about locations and settings well-supported in the last four editions. Desiring something else is sin.

Happiness, as usual, is mandatory.

Thanks Publisher.
 


I wonder if you need to buy the map pack for Undermountain to use the Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Wizard adventure. http://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/rpg-products/waterdeep-dungeon-mad-mage-map-pack

That would mean that adventure would cost 75$. 125$ if you buy Dragon Heist.
They did say the maps would be in the book, presumably shrunk down to page size. This, I imagine, would be a pack of poster-sized maps that would be rather difficult to ship with a book. So you would presumably be able to play the campaign without these maps, although having the poster maps would certainly be cooler and more convenient...

Hard to ship with a book, but easy in a box.

I think it´s no Demi-Lich but one of the Skulls of Skullport.
The Drow might be a priestess of Elistraee.

The Githyanki on the cover seems to hint that we are ready to move away from forgotten realms. My bet is 2019 is the year of Other World’s. Undermountain would be a fine capstone to their work in the Realms.

That’s a Death Tyrant, my friend!
