What Are These Four Unnamed D&D Products?

The folks over at Nerds On Earth spotted four as-yet untitled D&D products listed on Amazon. Often these appear with codenames (such as when we discovered Labyrinth, which was the codename for Tales from the Yawning Portal due on 4th April) and other times they have no information at all other than an ISBN number. We don't know much about upcoming releases, other than that there is some kind of major rules expansion in the works (but it could be anything from months to years off) and that Adventure Time's Pendleton Ward helped on something. Nerds On Earth spotted the following four entries.



Each has the name "Untitled RPG Accessory" by Wizards RPG Team (that's the authorname all the D&D books use). They all have a noted shipping weight of 5 ounces, which suggests maybe that's a default weight (by comparison, the Player's Handbook is listed at 2.2 pounds and Volo's Guide to Monsters is 1.3 pounds). All four are listed as "Brdgm edition", which other D&D books aren't.

None of those items are the big ticket hardcovers, which tend to have a price of $49.95. Sword Coast Adventurers Guide was $39.95, and things like Dungeonology and Monsters & Heroes of the Realms were published by other companies. DM Screens and cards and similar accessories are usually handled by Gale Force 9. WotC's Mike Mearls has hinted a couple of times about a major rules expansion in the pipeline, but the latest is that "We are still deciding what form that will take" - so that sounds like its some way off yet.

What's your guess?

I'll be really sad if they dump the 256-page hardcover in favor of a 64-page softcover as the sole fall release...

I'm guessing that you're right and that this won't be one of the "major" fall releases (given the schedule so far, an adventure path in September and a rules/campaign accessory of some sort in November). I wouldn't be surprised, however, if the $19.99 release is somehow related to one or both of those releases...

I'm thinking the $24.95 product will be a magnetic initiative tracker board. I think one will be a map pack and it's possible the lowest price point could be cards of some type. But those are just guesses of course.

I'll also look for more items on Amazon. I'll amend the original article if I uncover anything.
 



If they sold the 5e Basic Rules as a printed product, I wonder what the price would be? Would it be a $9.95 item? More? Less?
The player Basic rules is 114 pages. That's be at least $30.
I printed a black-and-white version of the books from Lulu for $7. Buying it in a store would be $35 or so. At the scale WotC can print it will be cheaper, which probably is enough to have colour.

There is probably a middle ground...
Hopefully they release a $25 non-book accessory and a $45 256-page hardcover.

Have they put out the new set of spell cards yet?
