One of the many exciting things revealed at this years Wizards Presents is Dragonlance! As a physical-physical digital bundle, Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen will be available both in physical and digital forms. Alongside the usual book, Shadow of the Dragon Queen will feature an contoured digital experience including D&D beyond! Also included in Dragonlance is Dragonlance: Warriors of Krynn, a boardgame to coincide with the Shadow of the Dragon Queen adventure! Both Shadow of the Dragon Queen and Warriors of Krynn will be available Dec. 6, 2022. Pre-orders are available now and grant early access beginning Nov. 22, 2022.
Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen returns to the world of Krynn and brings along with it everything that you would expect to be core to an experience during the War of the Lance. The story that we tell is only a part of the larger epic of the War of the Lance and it’s an untold story that we haven’t seen explored via novels or adventures in the past.
You’re getting a new race in the kender. The mischievous, curious characters that have this insatiable drive for exploration and wonder. You’ve also got explorations of the Knights of Solamnia, this group of valorous knights that you can be a part of as a new background. You can also join the Mages of High Sorcery who are a group of mysterious magic users that have their own legendary methods of joining. Along with that we’ve got a host of new feats to help you further immerse yourselves in being a member of, perhaps, the Knights of Solamnia or the Mages of High Sorcery, but also to indulge in some of the other wonders of this setting.
So Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen does something that we haven’t explored before in fifth edition and that’s offering a game experience that cooperates and coordinates with the role-playing experience in the form of Dragonlance: Warriors of Krynn. This is a whole boardgame that’s not necessary for you to play the adventure, but offers you a unique mass battle experience that meshes in and out of the larger adventure.
