They definitely planned this whole legend lore thing last minute in response to the Amazon leak, based on Erika Fermina describing how she seemed to have to make a cosplay in a couple days...
Actually, I think Shelly said they gave her something on the order of a month. ('less than a month'). But she definitely didn't make it sound like it was over the weekend. And they did a bunch of shooting and editing with Todd Kenrick. Really seems like they had weeks to work it out.

"One last exciting announcement."

It is possible they'll announce the last book, but if they do I suspect it will just be a title, probably no cover. A lot like the first announcement for Eberron's setting book.

Boring so far for a "special" 300th show. But as I am watching, they seem to be following along in order of how they plugged things. doing the card reveals now, so that "one last exciting announcement" better be next, and not have been one of the other things already revealed.

They said less than a month, being decidedly non specific. And noted how they reluctantly had to do the directing over the internet via zoom.

Ray Winninger just tweeted out that Wyatt’s book is indeed coming between Witchlight and Strixhaven but that we won’t get the announcement until D&D Live. Guessing they just didn’t wanna blow through every announcement during this week and save something for, know, the actual big event they had planned already.

 


They have said they are going to sell pillows if you want a female half-ogre or a (psionic) blueskin gobling as waifus.

* Could James Wyatt's project anything linked to Far East? A remake of Kara-Tur, for example.

That may mean that at almost literally the last second, Greg and Shelly were told to not tease Wyatt's book. So maybe the Twitter tease of one final announcement was true at the time they posted the tweet.

I think the final announcement was D&D Celebration 🍾, which they proudly announced will have yet more announcements. Wise cracking about announcements of announcements of announcements aside maybe we will learn what the 3rd classic setting is going to be and some other books they plan on releasing in 2022.

More likely they wanted to hold off on announcing both to keep the spotlight on WITCHLIGHT but couldn't with the UA

Guess we can expect ASHARDALON'S DRACONIMICON or CYAN BLOODBANE'S BOOK OF WYRMS in Oct
Can't afford all three with Christmas right after. Wonder which I'll skip
 

Unsurprisingly, no new reveals suggesting Amazon just jumped the gun by a day or two. Probably because they knew they needed to get the UA out now and know doing the reveal at the live shows doesn't work as EVERYONE watching already knows

If there is an October book, we'll find out at the live show.
But I hope not as having a hardcover in Sept, Oct and Nov is a 3rd Ed style heavy release schedule
Too much content means the content isn't special and a book is easier to skip

Ray confirmed that is exactly what is going to happen. So James Wyatt's book for October will be announced at D&D.

PS my Birthday is in October.

The final announcement was the DM challenge and some card reveals
The challenge is actually pretty big news

As for 2022's books, and the second classic setting, we'll likely we'll find out about that in Jan 2022

Yeah, Winninger says in tweet 3 that they only announced Strixhacen early due to the UA.
 

I think in an indirect way they did tease James Wyatt's book, when they were talking to the young lady who played Ellywick Tumblestrum, they mentioned that Ellywick Tumblestrum was going to be in more then just Witchlight and AFR, but other stuff too. I doubt that would be Strixhaven, wrong multiverse. So that leaves AFR's fiction and James Wyatt's book and maybe BG3.

The biggest shocker for me was that of the two AFR cards Ellywick Tumblestrum Planeswalker card wasn't one of them. I mean they've been teasing us with her all week and we ended up with a Flump and Tasha's Hideous Laughter.

The funniest thing about that is that I can see the Flump getting alot of use in card draw hungry white decks and Tasha's in annoying blue mill decks.

Love the art and text on both these cards. So far IMHO all of AFR's cards so far have been home runs.

Or books in 2022 and 2023 since they often tease years ahead
