D&D 5E Two New D&D Books Revealed: Feywild & Strixhaven Mage School

Amazon has revealed the next two D&D hardcovers! The Wild Beyond the Witchlight is a feywild adventure due in September, and Curriculum of Chaos is a Magic: the Gathering setting of Strixhaven, which looks like a Harry Potter-esque mage school, set for November.


The Wild Beyond the Witchlight is D&D's next big adventure storyline that brings the wicked whimsy of the Feywild to fifth edition for the first time.

The recent Unearthed Arcana, Folk of the Feywild, contained the fairy, hobgoblin of the Feywild, owlfolk, and rabbitfolk. UA is usually a good preview of what's in upcoming D&D books.

Curriculum of Chaos is an upcoming D&D release set in the Magic: The Gathering world of Strixhaven -- a brand new MtG set only just launched.

Strixhaven is a school of mages on the plane of Arcavios, an elite university with five rival colleges founded by dragons: Silverquill (eloquence), Prismari (elemental arts), Witherbloom (life and death), Lorehold (archaeomancy), and Quandrix (numeromancy). You can read more about the M:tG set here.

You will be able to tune into WotC's streamed event D&D Live on July 16 and 17 for details on both, including new character options, monsters, mechanics, story hooks, and more!

Looks like we know the full schedule now.
September, adventure in the Feywild with the new fey races tested earlier (a surprise)
November, MtG crossover. Likely no new races or subclasses

They might have a fifth book on dragons, maybe for December. But that's a lot of content
Suppose Strixhaven could have the dragon options
 

Damn, but did Amazon really spoil this one, stealing WotC's D&D live 2021s Thunder. And in a weird way too revealing, Chris Perkin's Summer Adventure, but then skipping James Wyatt book and revealing Amanada Hammon's book in November. This means that James Wyatt's book HAS to be a Classic settings book, because otherwise folks were mislead about the classic settings. As it is another MtG setting book, instead of a classic setting book, it going to have folks losing it.

I knew that the Arcavios map was a sign that they had D&D plans for the plane, but I didn't think they'd pull the trigger until the second visit there.

I love Strixhaven so I don't mind. The Feywild adventure isn't a shocker.

No we don't know the full schedule, because neither of these books is the book that James Wyatt is working on, and that one is coming out before the Strixhaven book, but when we don't know.

And "including new character options, monsters, mechanics, story hooks, and more!" So yeah the Strixhaven book likely has races at minimum, probably spells too like Summon Inkling.

Remember this wasn't supposed to come out like this, we weren't supposed to know about Witchlight until July, and Strixhaven was likely being saved for announcement in September. Amazon really, really screw this one up BIG time, even by Amazon's standards. So it's no surprise that they didn't spoil the middle book, none of thos was planned.

James Wyatt used to work on Magic
The Strixhaven book is probably his baby more than Hammon's
(And everyone is still assuming those products are physical RPG books and not other D&D branded products)

And how would people be misled about classic settings? We know they're working on two more (or were planning them, because they could always decide to cancel it if it's not working out) but that doesn't mean they're all coming out within 18 months of each other.

How do you know that?

Someone pointed out on Facebook that some of the Fey options could have been for Strixhaven as well
Testing two books at once

The Amazon link for Strixhaven explicitly calls out the DnD Live show "for more information"

Strixhaven will have new Races, that's what the Fey UA Race options was about: as I pointed out at the time, the options on hand fit in Strixhaven an not any existing D&D Setting, particularly the focus on anthropomorphic animals.

Nope, look at the UA James Wyatt leading on, it's the Draconic Options one, that fits FR lore well, but has nothing to do with Strixhaven lore. Strixhaven's Founder Dragons are very different from Metallic, Chromatic, and Gem Dragons. Strixhaven has no Kobolds. Of course it also has no Rabbitfolk, Fairies, or Hobgoblins. It occurs to me that aside from Owlfolk (which might do double duty for Witchlight and Strixhaven) we might not have gotten a Strixhaven UA yet at all, it's not supposed to be out till November!

And yeah folks were lead to believe we were getting 2 to 3 classic settings this year.

But the Strixhaven set has no Rabbitfolk, Fairies, or Hobgoblins (it barely has Goblins, who while having no creature card, are depicted on Rejected).

I don't think we actually got a Strixhaven UA yet at all, it's not supposed to be release till November! I think the Feywild races were extended for Witchlight, although the Owlfolk will likely make a second appearance in Strixhaven. The Strixhaven UA is likely still coming.
