Today is a big day for Wizards of the Coast, owners of D&D…March 17 is the street date for two hyped-up releases, one a tie-in with the popular liveplay show Critical Role.
We covered Explorer’s Guide To Wildemount here before, but it’s the first D&D campaign that takes inspiration from Critical Role, under the guidance of dungeon master Matthew Mercer. For $49.95, here’s what you get: descriptions of all Wildemount’s major factions, new magic items and creatures from the show, four introductory adventures from the setting, player options that include a tool to help you integrate original characters into the setting, and more.
As for the second item, Laeral Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit is a Forgotten Realms expansion that comes in a fancy felt-lined box. Contained within are two dice trays, twenty double-sided cards expanding the lore of Forgotten Realms characters and locations, and a giant fold-out map of the Sword Coast and the city of Waterdeep.
You’ll be able to find Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount And Laeral Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit online and at hobby shops everywhere, or you can order straight from the source at dungeonsanddragons.com.
Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount
The 304-page Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount invites Dungeon Masters to start playing in any of Wildemount’s regions using introductory adventures, dozens of story-inspiring plot seeds, and the new heroic chronicle system.

Players and Dungeon Masters will find new character options available for play in any campaign, such as the Echo Knight fighter subclass, new spells, new monsters, and more!
