Here’s one for the fans who are into roleplaying games and the rest of you who will be. Dungeons & Dragons is getting an anthology book with thirteen adventures, all connected to the mysterious new location Radiant Citadel. It’s suitable for new players looking to get hooked into their first slice of the setting, or veteran players looking for something new to add to their campaigns. Read on, then come play with us.
Following in the footsteps of anthologies like Candlekeep Mysteries and Tales from the Yawning Portal, Wizards of the Coast is excited to announce Journeys through the Radiant Citadel. This new D&D book provides adventures set in a variety of all-new locations Dungeon Masters can add to ongoing games, stream as one-shot sessions, or use as the basis for entire campaigns. Each adventure is connected to the Radiant Citadel, a mysterious city at the heart of the Ethereal Plane. Co-led by Ajit George (writer on Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft) and F. Wesley Schneider (Senior Game Designer on the D&D Team at Wizards), this collection features adventures by writers drawing inspiration from their connections to various real-world cultures and mythologies. Journeys through the Radiant Citadel will be available everywhere on June 21, 2022.
“This book is stunning in its scope and ambition. It blows open the D&D multiverse with a fresh set of exciting adventures that serve as gateways to new lands, monsters, characters, and more,” said George, who is the Director of Operations of the Shanti Bhavan Children’s Project in addition to his RPG work. “Talented writers from around the globe came together to make something truly special. There’s never been anything like this in D&D before.”
Each of the thirteen adventures in Journeys through the Radiant Citadel highlights a different location, introducing new characters, monsters, and more. The tome also contains a gazetteer for the Radiant Citadel itself, as well as for two additional lands. All these adventures can easily be added to both homebrew worlds and existing D&D settings.
The adventures in this 224-page anthology range in level and tone. The 1st-level adventure, “Salted Legacy,” presents a comedic mystery set in a bustling night market; “Written in Blood,” the 3rd-level adventure, sends characters to investigate a farm with a terrifying haunting; and the 11th-level adventure, “Shadow of the Sun,” encourages adventurers to choose allegiances while navigating the escalating tensions of an angel-ruled city.
