Hey guess what? You can preorder my level 1 – 20 fifth edition adventure right now! The prices are about to go up, so preorder now to get the best deal.

Woo! I have a bunch of exciting announcements, so let’s get right to it.

Waterdeep: Dragon Heist Supplements

Friday saw the release of the first official D&D adventure in which I had a handWaterdeep: Dragon Heist. The DM’s Guild Adepts put out two collaborations to support the adventure so far and I was part of both. The first is called Unseen Waterdeep and I wrote most of it with Will Doyle editing and making a beautiful map with Stacey Allan.

Add a new villain option and cunning criminal organization to Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. Hlaavin, a half-doppelganger/half-illithid crime boss, runs the UNSEEN, an illegal cabal of assassins, thieves, spies, illusionists, and shapechangers that plots to rule the city from the shadows. Written by Dragon Heist designer James Introcaso.

This supplement includes:

  • Background information for Hlaavin and the Unseen and Shieldmeet, the Forgotten Realms’ leap day holiday
  • Advice for blending the Unseen seamlessly into Dragon Heist
  • Eight new encounters and a new encounter chain to go with chapter 4 of Dragon Heist
  • A new villain lair for Hlaavin and the Unseen with incredible cartography by Will Doyle and Stacey Allan
  • A high resolution version of the map
  • A printer-friendly version of the adventure

The second product is Waterdeep: City Encounters, helmed by Will Doyle with a bunch of other contributors including Alan Patrick, Cindy Moore, Rich LescouflairGreg Marks, M.T. Black, Robert Adducci, Shawn Merwin, Travis Woodall, and me.

Presenting over ONE-HUNDRED short encounters that bring the City of Splendors to life in YOUR game. This supplement includes a plethora of highly replayable random street encounters that draw on the story of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist™, with emphasis on the central themes of intrigue, espionage, and peril. One-shot encounters are presented for almost every location mentioned in “Volo’s Waterdeep Enchiridion” (Chapter 9), meaning you’ll never get caught short for a dramatic scene as your players explore the city.

Tabletop Voices

On Friday, September 14th, I’m launching a new show on Encounter Roleplay’s Twitch channel called Tabletop Voices. Tabletop Voices is one-on-one chats with tabletop RPG creators, influencers, and awesomers who you may not know. Sydney Shields and Will Jones of Encounter Roleplay asked me to help them make a show that highlights people you may not always hear from. Some might be names you recognize, others will be totally new to you. The show will be available on Encounter Roleplay’s YouTube channel and as a podcast on Don’t Split the Podcast Network after they air.
