Dungeons & Dragons has announced that the Elemental Evil storyline will begin this March and run through mid-summer! This new plot allows players to explore the Forgotten Realms and defeat the secret cults that threaten to wipe out the Sword Coast. During this time, heroes can harness the powers of the elements of fire, water, air, and earth to emerge victorious!
This resounding theme will find itself woven into various forms of the D&D world. The first example can be found in the release of a new downloadable module, Neverwinter: Elemental Evil, for the Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG from Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment. Neverwinter brings forth a new playable class, the Paladin, and increases the game’s level cap to 70. Neverwinter is set in the Forgotten Realms, and launches in early 2015. Cryptic also recently announced Neverwinter on Xbox One will be available in early 2015.
In a another form, characters in the D&D tabletop roleplaying game can help prevent devastation to the lands and people of the Forgotten Realms in the Princes of the Apocalypse adventure by Wizards of the Coast and Sasquatch Game Studio. Princes of the Apocalypse is available on April 7, 2015 and includes an epic adventure for characters levels 1–15 as well as new elemental spells and the element-touched genasi as a new playable race. As an added bonus, a free download will be available in mid-March that includes more new races plus the player content available in the game, which is just in time for the start of the Elemental Evil season of the D&D Adventurers League.
The D&D goodness just keeps coming in their other products tied into the Elemental Evil storyline including the Temple of Elemental Evil Adventure System Board Game and pre-painted collectible miniatures from WizKids Games. Gamers will find elements of Neverwinter rolled into items in the board game and miniatures boosters. Rounding out the new theme is Gale Force Nine’s new Dungeon Master’s screen featuring Elemental Evil art, as well as unpainted, resin miniatures that tie into the adventure, all slated to release beginning in March.
Will you be questing against the coming Elemental Evil?
