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!

That's the main point. DnD has a muliverse of worlds, cultures, styles of play, target audiences? Why would one be bothered with MORE options, for more people, when the style of play they enjoy is not being threatenned in any way?
Prolly cause if you don't like bunnyfolk and owlpeople in your game, having rules for them runs the risk of a player coming to your game and asking to play one
And saying 'no' or banning options is frowned upon

I don't much care personally. No going to buy the books as I have three setting books already I'll never use and I don't care about Magic. And I'm an naughty word GM that bans options all the time for arbitrary reasons
But I can understand why people dislike
 

Man, I still wish they revealed the alternative cover. Hmm, wonder if it could happen alongside the big announcement on Friday.
we gent an announcement of friday? why was I not told?
Thanks for your permission on that, I appreciate that. :p
anthro races never worked for me but that might because they tend to just end up stereotypes or just animal behaviour and I want things way more complex than that as the paint apes are utterly nut, so why would other sapients not follow suit?

Some of us just want cat girls :p

I think my interest with anthro races started with Disney’s Robin Hood, and I just thought that it would be cool to have a D&D world where humans were replaced with anthro people. Secret of Nihm/Redwall doubled down on that for me.

That and I always thought Narnia’s Reepicheep was da man.
 




I don't really have a desire to play anthro races much, but if I did that movie would be the inspiration. Fox robin hood was so cool!
I recall hearing that the reason Disney's Robin Hood featured him as a fox was because the original plan was to make a movie based on a certain fox from folklore named Reynard, and when the decision to shift to Robin Hood came along they decide just to make him a fox.

Fox Girls/Kitsunes for me.

I always felt like the world of TaleSpin would make for an AMAZING pulp action RPG! Isn't someone making a Redwall RPG right now?

Reynard, or Renart, was a famous fox of French stories, star of "Le Roman de Renart". He was SO friggin' popular, that his name actually supplanted the original name of his species, leading to the modern 'renard' used in French! No joke! The French word for foxes before that was 'goupil'!
