Wizards of the Coast has revealed a new adventure supplement on the horizon which will revamp seven classic Dungeons & Dragons tales for the fifth edition of the venerable RPG. One of the adventures (Against the Giants) included in Tales from the Yawning Portal, interestingly enough, includes the first D&D product I ever purchased as a kid. Yes, I bought module G1 – Steading of the Hill Giant Chief without even realizing you had to own rulebooks to play. Doh!
Tales from the Yawning Portal will be released to WPN core stores, and those rated above that level, on March 24th. The book will be on sale elsewhere worldwide on April 4th and carries an MSRP of $49.95.
When the shadows grow long in Waterdeep and the fireplace in the taproom of the Yawning Portal dims to a deep crimson glow, adventurers from across the Forgotten Realms, and even from other worlds, spin tales and spread rumors of dark dungeons and lost treasures. Some of the yarns overheard by Durnan, the barkeep of the Yawning Portal, are inspired by places and events in far-flung lands from across the D&D multiverse, and these tales have been collected into a single volume.
Within this tome are seven of the most compelling dungeons from the 40+ year history of Dungeons & Dragons. Some are classics that have hosted an untold number of adventurers, while others are some of the most popular adventures ever printed.
The seeds of these stories now rest in your hands. D&D’s most storied dungeons are now part of your modern repertoire of adventures. Enjoy, and remember to keep a few spare character sheets handy.
For use with the fifth edition Player’s Handbook, Monster Manual, and Dungeon Master’s Guide, this book provides fans with adventures, magic items and deadly monsters, all of which have been updated to the fifth edition rules. Explore seven deadly dungeons in this adventure supplement for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.
