Four more Tomb of Sargeras bosses will be open for testing on the 23rd and 24th of February: Sisters of the Moon, The Desolate Host, Maiden of Vengeance, and The Fallen Avatar.

Greetings Adventurers!

After your adventures in the frozen lands in the North, it’s time to come back home to Neverwinter. Hang up your cloak, have your laundry done, and tuck away your newfound treasures. Enjoy the warmth, both in weather and the welcome of old friends like Knox. It’s a time to relax and reflect, and to drink a toast to absent friends. But heroes in Neverwinter never rest for long….

Trouble is stirring. Rumors of magic and uprisings fill the taverns. And now Lord Neverember is calling upon adventurers to help reclaim the old River District. It’s time to pull the boots back on and see what’s happening to your city!

Let’s dig into what we’ll see in this new expansion, The Cloaked Ascendancy:

New Adventure Zone: The River District! Lord Neverember has made good his promise to reclaim and expand upon Neverwinter by opening up the old rich merchants’ and nobles’ neighborhoods of the River District. Now he’s looking for adventurers like you to help him secure the port and land. By establishing guard posts around the River District, you can help recover wealth from abandoned mansions and crypts through excavation sites. The trouble is, he’s not the only one with the idea. Several powerful wizards have laid claim to the River District, and even worse—one of them has claimed sovereignty over Neverwinter! The River District comes complete with a new campaign with alternate paths towards completion.

More Treasure Hunting! The River District is full of possibilities and hidden treasures. All you have to do is find a map!

Ships ahoy! The opening up of the River District port means lots of opportunities for trading. Protect treasure caravans and barter with travelling merchants willing to trade fresh supplies of Voninblood and other sought-after treasures in exchange for resources from the River District.

New Skirmish: The Illusionist’s Gambit! This crazy skirmish has you battling wits and blade against the mind of a mad illusionist. Be ready for anything—then play it again and be ready for something else! The skirmish has dozens of play combinations. Go test your luck!

The Return of the Spellplague Caverns!  Refurbished and remastered, we’ve cleared out all the corpses of adventurers gone by, and reopened both standard and Master versions. New challenges, new boss fights, and of course new epic loot. The Mimic King compels you!

For everything mentioned above and more, follow the quest path to these blogs:

Thanks for reading, welcome home and look me up in the Driftwood Tavern—I’ll buy you a drink!

Mass Combat

Subtitle: 
Unearthed Arcana
Banner: 
Thumbnail (869×490): 
Text: 

This week Unearthed Arcana switches gears, going from character options to a rules option for the DM: mass combat. We’ve touched on mass combat before in this column and have created these new rules after receiving your feedback. Please give the new rules a read, try them out in play, and let us know what you think in the survey we’ll provide in the next installment of Unearthed Arcana.

The material here is presented for playtesting and to spark your imagination. These game mechanics are in draft form, usable in your campaign but not refined by design iterations or full game development. They are not officially part of the game. For these reasons, material in this column is not legal in D&D Adventurers League events.


Warlock and Wizard Survey

Now that you’ve had a chance to read and ponder the warlock and wizard options from a few weeks ago, we’re ready for you to give us your feedback about them in the following survey.


About the Months Ahead

We have a bunch of D&D content for you to playtest, discuss, and mull over. We have enough material, in fact, that we will be releasing Unearthed Arcana multiple times a month for the next few months. Look for the material on Mondays. We’ll take the things you love and refine them, and we’ll take the things you don’t like and either toss them out or rebuild them. Either way, your feedback is invaluable.

Because both of us—Mike Mearls and Jeremy Crawford—are working on Unearthed Arcana for the foreseeable future, the Sage Advice column will be on hold temporarily. In the meantime, Jeremy will continue to provide official rules answers on Twitter (@JeremyECrawford), as well as in the new Sage Advice segment in the Dragon Talk podcast.

About the Hosts

Greg Tito has had weird and long career as an Off Broadway stage manager, a playwright, a theater carpenter, a secretary, an RPG designer, a games journalist, and now a PR/Marketing person. He has loved Dungeons & Dragons ever since 1985 when he found an old copy of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide on his brother’s bookshelf and he honed that love of fantasy storytelling in the dark streets of Sasserine by way of the Upper West Side gaming group he joined in 2004. He moved his family (wife + two young kids) to Seattle in 2015 to work on D&D and he’s never looked back. You can find Greg on Twitter.

Shelly Mazzanoble will always play a magic-user. There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.

Bart Carroll has been a part of Wizards of the Coast since 2004, having worked with the Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Magic: the Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons brands through the years. He’s also been a D&D player since 1980 (with fond memories of coloring the illustrations in his 1st Edition Monster Manual), and is thrilled that his current role includes the D&D website and Dragon+. His favorite monster is the brain in a jar. You can find Bart on Twitter.
