ComicBook.com spoke with Nathan Stewart, the Brand Director and Executive Producer of Dungeons & Dragons, at the Stream of Many Eyes, a massive three-day event held last weekend in Los Angeles to promote the reveal of two new adventure storylines (Waterdeep: Dragon Heist and Water Deep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage) that will be released later in 2018. When asked to give a tease about plans for 2019, Stewart revealed that the brand still had more surprises for later this year.
"Next month we're going to talk about a couple of different settings that people can start playing as early as this year," Stewart said.
These new publications won't be full-blown storylines, but rather an introduction to different worlds set inside the D&D multiverse. "It's going to be more like at the level of how Barovia [introduced in the Curse of Strahd adventure storyline] is in terms of stuff. Here's a thing that's going to give you a taste of the setting, but we're not going to that setting yet, we're just letting you get in there and start doing it."
Stewart compared the unrevealed product to Waterdeep: Dungeon Heist, which doubles as a low-level adventure and an explanation for how to run campaigns in a large urban setting.
Now I am doubtful that Greyhawk is going to make the first cut (Dragonlance is the rumored setting for the new D&D live action film and Planescape/Spelljammer has been strongly hinted at in several publications, pod casts, streams, etc.).
But this means there is a quick an dirty way for Greyhawk to be opened up to DMs Guild publication if they do one of these mini-campaign guides for it.
