I crit!
What time last year did announcements happen during the holiday? Where there any?

I’d like focused speculation, what’s the next book specifically? What do you think? What do you want?

IIRC, WotC is usually pretty quiet going into the Holidays. I reckon we won't hear about the next book until about the time Call of the Netherdeep is coming out in March, for a May release.
 


Maybe an UA about Dark Sun.

Spelljammer and Dragonlance are possible, but also Throne of Eldraine and Innistrad had got some possibilities. Dark Sun needs a lot of work.

Any partnership? Terramar (League of Legends).

Dragonlance like a thematic expansion for Hero Quest, with Draconians and the heroes of the lance.

Whatever it is, hopefully it’s a lot more inspiring than this year’s offering.

I think WOCs marketing team have completely missed me on their 2021 Venn diagram of keeping people happy. Luckily there’s enough goodwill stored up from the previous 3 years that I can survive a year.
 

Unfortunately, I just picked up 12 cheese sliders. Half my family demands White Castle stuffing, so I can confirm their will be WC slider stuffing at thanksgiving.

Oh, you meant books, well I hope none contain recipes that include fast food items...
This is a thing? I am listening….

I'm just glad that I am not American, and therefore do not have to consume a dry tasteless bird whilst trying to make polite conversation.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Chef here!

The turkey's breast is indeed pretty dull; its dry with almost no fat, hence no taste. But you can make it almost edible by cooking it in a vacuum bag with butter, rosemary and pepper in slow boil water, then finish it in the oven to gave it color for a few minutes.

The thighs are the good part. The fatty brown meat can handle roast-type cooking, with high temperature to brown the meat then a slow cooking in a broth for a few hours. With honey, rosemary, thyme, onions, garlic and wild mushrooms, it pretty good.

But, yeah, Americans tend to favor cooking it whole for way too long, making it pretty dry in the fat-less parts, unless it is pre-injected by salted water or more butter until there's more butter than meat in the damn bird.

Or thrown in a vat of boiling oil, in the least careful way possible.

:p

The horror the horror DC 30 CON save. Almost as bad as Krystal sliders.

I generally toss a stick of b















thank you swag kitten for editting.
stick of butter in the cavity and follow the package directions. But I use an enclosed roasting pan, and remove the top last 45 minutes to brown the skin. I did see a professional chef cheat. Food safe blow torch to brown the skin.
My prediction is nothing, and the gluten free stuffing is going be a hit.
Happy Thanksgiving for those who are celebrating,. And a good day to the rest of y'all.

We Americans don't have to consume a dry tasteless bird... we CHOOSE to, thank you very much! I mean, these vats of gravy aren't going to drown themselves. ;)
wait... turkeys in america arre dry tasteless birds? I'm sorry for your cuisine :p

Edit: just a question I have. Do american barbecues really have basically hotdogs and burguers in them as I see in the movies? If the answer is yes I'm quite sad for you gringos

Happy Thanksgiving to all Americans on this board. Over in the UK, I’ll be “joining” you with an American night and all three NFL games. Will be fun....well, maybe not Lions v Bears!
Oh, and let’s hope there’s a good announcement from WotC....maybe, I can help: “We are delighted to announce a Return To treatment of the classic modules, Temple of Tharizdun and Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth.” Sorted....now let’s get that chilli cooking.
