Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Book Details Emerge!

May 20, 2014 by brennon

Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition has finally emerged from the playtesting dungeon and the new covers and adventure books have been unleashed on the world. See what you think!

Starter Set

First thing first is of course the Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set that will be coming to your tabletop around July 15th. It will have everything you need to get started included an adventure, characters, dice and of course a cut down version of the rules. You also CAN make characters with the starter set!

Players Handbook

Monster Manual

Dungeon Masters Guide

The three core books in the range aren’t coming out as one entity at the start either this time. Instead they are going to be spread out over a few months towards the end of the year. The Players Handbook will be available in August (and will be at Gen Con) followed by the Monster Manual in September and the Dungeon Masters Guide in November. It’s a shame they’re going to be spread out like this!

Hoard of the Dragon Queen

The Rise of Tiamat

There will also be a pair of adventure books with Hoard of the Dragon Queen as the first followed by The Rise of Tiamat. The first of these will be available alongside the Players Handbook giving you a ready adventure to get involved in. The Rise of Tiamat will follow later and provides a massive story arch for your characters to follow.

This is all very exciting and I can’t wait to actually get my hands on the books!

Will you be picking them up?
