D&D 5E The March D&D Book Will Be Announced Next Tuesday

As has become standard these days, the upcoming D&D book has appeared -- in an anonymous, secretive guise -- on various bookstores in advance of an announcement. In this case, Amazon, Penguin Random House, and Barnes & Noble, all of whom confirm that the book will be announced next Tuesday on January 12th, and released on March 16th.

As has become standard these days, the upcoming D&D book has appeared -- in an anonymous, secretive guise -- on various bookstores in advance of an announcement. In this case, Amazon, Penguin Random House, and Barnes & Noble, all of whom confirm that the book will be announced next Tuesday on January 12th, and released on March 16th.

The book will cost $49.99. B&N has its dimensions as being 6.5 x 9.5 inches, which is smaller than a standard D&D hardcover (but that information could just be a placeholder). B&N also indicates that the authors are Peter Lee and Rodney Thompson, but they also say that for Tasha's Cauldron and other WotC books, so that also looks like it's just their boilerplate for WotC. There's also an ISBN number: 978-0786967223.

This is almost an exact mirror of this time last year, almost down to the dates (last year it appeared on stores on Jan 6th, was announced as Explorer's Guide to Wildemount on Jan 9th, and released March 17th).

There's been plenty of speculation recently. Last year WotC said that three classic settings were getting active attention, and that the coming years would have a greater emphasis on settings, as well as more anthologies and Magic: The Gathering collaborations. And, of course, WotC has recently been involved in a Dragonlance lawsuit, which was voluntarily dismissed in December with Margaret Weis tweeting that there was exciting news in the weeks to come.

I crit!
$49.95 hardback. You can actually pre-order it. For a March 16th release.

Penguin Random House has it and you can sign up for an email list to get the announcement in your inbox!


Amazon has some details as well.


Wasn't Penguin Random House part of the Dragon Lance Lawsuite? Huh?

More speculation from this vid.

Really hope its something unique that we haven't seen for 5E yet. A release that's not an adventure path, campaign setting or rules expansion/MM.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I hope its not another DM Screen, Dice Set or Starter Set either.

So what would that be? If it’s not any of those I’m not sure what they could make that would actually sell.
I knew that was going to be the first response to my post.

Off the top of my head a sourcebook on merchant families/costers, trade routes, trade goods would fit that. Even if its set in FR its still out of the ordinary of what they've been releasing.

In years past there were books like Den of Thieves, Bastion of Faith and the College of Wizardry. Something different would be nice.
