From the announcement:

Dungeons & Dragons
This stamp release marks the 50th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons, described by its owners as the World’s Greatest Role-playing Game, that has become a cultural phenomenon. By inviting participants to imagine themselves as wizards, warriors and other adventurers in exciting and treacherous fantasy worlds, Dungeons & Dragons opened doors to whole new universes of creativity for generations of players. The pane of 20 stamps features 10 different designs that highlight characters, creatures and encounters familiar to players of the game. Greg Breeding, an art director for USPS, designed the stamps and pane with existing illustrations.

Other stamps announced as part of the 2024 release schedule include a stamp dedicated to UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, a ten-stamp set celebrating carnivals, and a set of 16 stamps featuring art from American landscape artist Ansel Adams.

The stamps will be available for sale in select post offices and online at the USPS store.

Hadn't really noticed before, but those stamps say "USA Forever", which I mean I guess it's a federal government agency, and the US is known for fanatical if mis-placed patriotism, but come on!

Otherwise, instead of "Forever" they have the price of the stamp listed on it, and it will always be that value even if the price of stamps goes up (in which case you'll need a smaller value stamp added to the one with the previous price to make up the difference).
This was true at one point, but the forever stamps proved so popular that now all US first class envelop stamps are forever stamps.

The "Forever" means that the stamps are good forever. Instead of having a fixed value so that a single stamp would not be sufficient to send a letter in the post. A Forever stamp is good for mailing a single First Class letter in the United States. If you want to send something that's larger than the dimensions of a "letter", weighs more than the classification of a "letter", or is being sent outside the United States, you have to purchase different stamps that have a specific monetary value.

The USPS found that people didn't buy stamps in bulk because, by the time they used them, the price of postage went up so people were upset. So they introduced the Forever Stamps that work regardless of how long you've held onto them.
