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.

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.

It'll be interesting to see if it really does support higher level mysteries. A mystery when the PCs can just check with their God for answers can be a tricky thing to make a Mystery. Just saying, "The God does not answer you" diminishes the heroes, but getting the answer often ruins the mystery.

Fair. Still, Gem Dragons are almost certainly being released this year (the Sapphire Dragon was released last year, with the promise of more coming), and it really doesn't seem on brand for Dragonlance. Seems like a Dragonomicon, or at least a Monster Book, is more likely...
Or a psionics book.

I wonder if said 17 mysteries will take place in different settings. One mystery could take place in Kyrnn of Dragonlance or in Ravenloft.

candlekeep is in FR, I'd be shocked if there is any real effort to include other settings in adventure design beyond perhaps a blurb about adapting an adventure set in FR & loaded with FR stuff can be run in other settings

Ah flub yeah your right. And I'm usually pro FR as my 5E game settings too. Damn Nat 1 roll on that Knowledge Check.
