Upcoming: Waterdeep Story Arc’s!
With the recent announcements of 2 new hardcover story arcs, both in (below) the city of Waterdeep.
Waterdeep: Dragon Heist
Due out on September 20, 2018.
Code named ‘Broadway’ this city adventure will be for levels 1-5.
Dungeons and Dragons’ lead story writer Chris Perkins:
“Waterdeep Dragon Heist takes D&D back to civilization in an environment which encourages a lot of roleplaying. A lot of the inspiration was from things like Ocean’s Eleven and The Italian Job in a city environment. Where the goal of the adventure is to try and find a trove of treasure and keep it out of the hands of villains.”
“I love this story because it’s not a world-shattering event. It feels very much grounded and you can get the sense that you can lose yourself in this city. Waterdeep is a character. It’s got a personality of its own. And one of the great things about it is it’s a very adventurer-friendly city. The people of the city know what adventurers are like, and they’ve got this kind of New York City blase attitude about them.”
“If you just want Waterdeep, we’re giving it to you. You can use the city, even if you don’t want to use the story.”
Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage
Due out on November 20th, 2018
Code named ‘Catacomb’, this will be a 256-page adventure for levels 6-20, exploring the mega-dungeon of Undermountain. The book will be a megadungeon that runs from Level 6-20 with both crafted levels that have their own “theme” as well as tools for creating “random” dungeons for expanded play. Chris Perkins tweeted that the book will include information about Skullport and twenty-three levels of Undermountain.
