Today Wizards of the Coast unleashed two new Dungeons & Dragons products: Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount and Forgotten Realms: Laeral Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit. Enhance or start new campaigns with these awesome new products that are available now.

The Dungeons & Dragons team collaborated with Matthew Mercer, Dungeon Master of the popular liveplay show Critical Role, to publish Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount, a brand new tabletop roleplaying sourcebook detailing the continent explored in the second campaign season of Critical Role. Adventurers can also now pick-up Laeral Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit, a new dice set and miscellany for the world’s greatest roleplaying game. Both products are available in stores everywhere starting today, March 17.

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. Adventurers can also expect to discover countless secrets revealed for the first time by Critical Role Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer. 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! (MSRP: $49.95)

Forgotten Realms Laeral Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit

Lady Laeral Silverhand is the Open Lord of Waterdeep, a centuries-old archmage, and the daughter of the god of magic. In the Forgotten Realms: Laeral Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit, she guides you on your path to adventure. This new kit includes eleven dice in a durable, felt-lined box that functions as two dice trays. Fans can also enjoy the twenty illustrated, double-sided cards detailing Laeral’s expert insights on key characters, locations, and lore from across the Forgotten Realms, along with a foldout, double-sided map featuring the Sword Coast and city of Waterdeep.
