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!

Strixhaven of all places? Zendikar feels like a better fit for a DnD book.

Corporate synergy trumps all I guess.
Not just synergy, actual demand. It's kind of shocking that they haven't already done a HP-esque D&D setting yet, frankly.
that is why you sell the book after you made most of the other books.
It's extremely unlikely to happen in 5E. It's much more likely they'll go directly into 6E, or if they go for 5.5E (i.e. revision of the "core three" books) they'll incorporate some of those rules into there (probably whilst chucking out some junk/chaff). Or they might put some of them in another Tasha's-type book.

Hmm. Call me cautiously interested in the Feywild book. I'll be interested to see how they go with it as the cover art we're looking suggests a particular approach, given the dress and look of it - top hats, pocket watches, circuses, it's all very Victorian. That fits in well with the kind of fantasy you find in Eberron, for example, but somewhat less so for the FR, although even the FR is far less trad-medieval than it used to be. If the books has a Something Wicked This Way Comes vibe I'd be cool with that. Anyway, it could be very cool. Not quite as exciting as a Shadowfell book would have been, but close.

The Feywild book actually gives me Carnival Row vibes. I haven't actually watched the show, but I heard it's a carnival run by the fae folk!
Um, not exactly. Call it a Victorian police show with Fey and it's own mythology. It is a good show though, for sure, and the vibe from the cover art is there.
