Dungeons & Dragons has been making a spectacular comeback ever since its fifth edition rule-set hit the shelves back in 2014. Wizards of the Coast revealed at San Diego Comic-Con they will be releasing a revised Dungeons & Dragons adventure called Tyranny Of Dragons to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of fifth edition. The new Tyranny of Dragons volume will update the Hoard of the Dragon Queen and The Rise of Tiamat adventures in one book. Wizards of the Coast used player feedback to smooth out the curve for new players. They have also added resources previously only available online and new concept art. The adventure pits players against the sinister Cult of the Dragon and their quest to bring back their dangerous god Tiamat back to the Forgotten Realms. Tiamat is one of Dungeons & Dragons‘ most popular villains. She is a five-headed dragon queen that created the evil chromatic dragons that terrorize the D&D multiverse.
“Dungeons & Dragons means a lot to millions of people and we’re excited to celebrate everything the community has achieved in the five years since we launched fifth edition,” said D&D senior director Nathan Stewart. “Tyranny of Dragons was an iconic adventure out of the gate, and we’ve made it even more memorable by putting it all under a new cover featuring the visage of Tiamat in Hydro74’s distinctive style.”
Tyranny of Dragons is one of three D&D products scheduled for release later this year. Wizards of the Coast is also releasing Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus, a new adventure that send players on a quest into Hell to save the city of Baldur’s Gate, and an untitled product set in the Eberron campaign setting.
The new Tyranny of Dragons edition will be available only in game and hobby stores beginning on October 22nd.
In an audacious bid for power, the Cult of the Dragon leads the charge in an unholy campaign to bring Tiamat back to Faerûn. Alongside their dragon allies and the Red Wizards of Thay, they sweep from town to town, laying waste to all those who oppose them and gathering a hoard of riches for their dread queen.
The threat of annihilation has become so dire that groups as disparate as the Harpers and Zhentarim are banding together to fight the cult. The heroes must succeed, or Faerûn will succumb to draconic tyranny. In the end, the world will never be the same.
