Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves arrives in theaters March 31, hoping to clear the extremely low bar set by previous D&D-themed movies. While fans of the seminal role-playing game are still a bit bent out of shape due to Hasbro’s recent unforced errors, the non-gaming public is pleasantly surprised by Sophia Lillis’ owl costume and Michelle Rodriguez’s flaming axe. Now, with less than two months until the premiere, we finally know which officially licensed adventure books will be attached to the Chris Pine vehicle – Icewind Dale: Rim of the Frostmaiden and soon to be released anthology keys from the golden vaultDue to debut February 7.

Among the major Forgotten Realms locations to be included in the upcoming film is Revels End, a maximum-security prison located in the frozen forest of Icewind Dale. Revel’s End was introduced in rhyme of the frostmaidenAnd it turns out that publisher Wizards of the Coast built its magnum opus with a particular audience in mind.

“I worked with the writers, the directors on The Forgotten Realms to come up with a location that would meet the needs of the film,” Chris Perkins, game design architect for D&D, said in a promotional video released Thursday. rhyme of the frostmaiden was released in 2020, which means Perkins has been whispering in the ear of writers Michael Gilio, John Francis Daley, Chris McKay, and Jonathan Goldstein for some time now.

rhyme of the frostmaiden borrows from elements of psychological horror, including films such as John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic Talk, I’ve played quite a bit of it, and it lives up to its reputation as a mechanically challenging experience for players and Dungeon Masters alike. Revels End is an optional mid-level dungeon that players can explore, a panopticon built around a central, all-seeing tower.

Thursday’s video, along with a news release, also explains how Revel’s End will play out. keys from the golden vault, Players will receive a key from The Vault, a philanthropic organization hell-bent on securing and giving away McGuffins for various reasons. That key, once placed in a magical music box, will relay a mission from the party’s handler. After this, players will use an in-fiction map to plan their heists.

keys from the golden vault Will be filled with these types of robberies, 13 in total. For 5th edition interest in numerology, the quest title associated with Revels End is “Prisoner 13”. rhyme of the frostmaiden sent players after Prisoner 237, a relative newcomer to that facility, which leads me to believe the eponymous Prisoner No. 13 has actually been on ice for quite a long time.

keys from the golden vault Available in a few formats, including a traditional hardcover book and a Roll20 virtual tabletop supplement. Like last year’s Dragonlance reboot, it will also be sold as a physical/digital combo. Those who buy the combo pack will get two weeks early access to the Roll20 supplement on February 7. keys from the golden vault Hits the street on February 21st including Amazon and your friendly local game store.
