      Will D&D Beyond be adding the Tal'dorei Campaign Guide too? Love the "Runechild" as a Sorcerous Origin!

      Soooo, you guys never gonna give a better solution to the needing to buy all the manuals and books AGAIN if you have the physical copys?

      @sebastianwillows why sub class a class with subclasses. I'm currently an oder of the lycan blood hunter fir example l. Its more likely to be a class specific to Exandria and not a phb class other wise its offical


    It's high noon hehe

    I hope we get stats for the Gloomstalkers. Dope aesthetic, no stats. I assume it's a modified wyvern but I've wanted to use them for a while.

    I am really excited for this. Just sorting my first D&D campaign to DM (inspired to do so by CR) and I can't wait to implement some of Mercers creations. Great job guys!

    Does Ravnica not count as a world they brought in?

  • diggerthecornflake

    I wonder if Matt would ever write a novel in his world? Might not be his “type” of writing but he has written a world that has a lot of lore, maps and art. There are comics and now a TV show in the works. I just think that’d be super cool for him to do a novel as well! I know novels take a long time and he has so much on his plate already. It could even be a bunch of short stories that he puts together, I don’t know. I’d buy it :D

    I don´t follow CR (I do follow Matts other DnD interests), yet I am so pumped for this book !! I am so happy for Matt ! Same with Joe, it feels like their dreams coming true.

    Honestly Matt is just a creative and precious treasure and must be protected at all costs, im so thrilled for him to have a dream come true after the wonderful gifts hes given us fans and the endless love, encouragement and positivity he has poured into the community. Of course the cast and crew deserve so much love as well but Matt is the priceless gem at the centre.

    I have just started getting into DnD, though I have been a fan of R A Salvatore for years. So...ummm...what exactly is Wildemount?

  • FalconPunch827

    Mercer has grown too powerful.

  • bri2uty

    Matt is such a brilliant person. I’m so happy gaming has gotten to this point and he has an opportunity to share.

    Will the blood hunter be in the book?

  • feylights

    I'll admit I haven't watched CR (though I know several people who do), but this might get me into it. I'm glad it has a pantheon! And elves, of course. Looks like there are some novels, too!

    I'm so proud of him

      @soinhu foitu if you mean an adventure module like Storm King's Thunder or Tyranny of Dragons by "playable book", then no. It's a setting guide with information to build your own adventures around

    • soinhu foitu

      So is it a playable book, or is it a guidebook?

    As long as its not based too much of the Characters in CR, im sick and tired of DnD players just copying the CR cast when they play

    Please WOTC have this book translated into foreign languages. French in my case but let GF9 go full translation on this jewel !

    Building backstory through rolling... you have my attention. Some of the best character building experiences I've had are through the traveller rpg and the cyberpunk system. Very interested in this book

  • Bayley Farrell

    I mean, strictly speaking, they kinda pulled the MtG multiverse in very recently, but I don't know if the Guildmaster's Guide was meant to cement it as a part of the D&D official multiverse. In any case, I'm glad to see Matt being given such an awesome opportunity, and it's amazing of him to include the fan artists in the project like that. I'm not a very big fan of the show (it's fine, I just don't love it) and am not terribly excited for the book. I'll probably allow any player that asks me (the DM) to use the new content, but I'm not gonna get the book. Would have probably been more interested if I'd been told that the Blood Hunter and Matt's other previous homebrew were going to be pulled in to become official stuff. Oh well.

    Is there gonna be a physical copy and will people miss out on the bonus content if they get that?

      bonus content is just frames on dndbeyond. Same as they always offer. Backgrounds too. You will only get it with the digital version. There WILL be a physical version though.

    Matt is so humble. He's has brought so much imagination to story telling that I don't think he's really aware of it's effects. I hope he's happy and healthy and keeps giving us that sweet imagination juice.

  • JoBirdie

    SLOWLY matt and his screen will merge and become a whole entity.. soon tm

  • Keyshell

    Here's the real question; is the cast allowed to read it or are there spoilers?

    I’m about to start a campaign using the Tal’Dorei guide and if I can have this too it will be so useful especially since one of my players is going to be from Wildemount.

    One of the things I love about Critical Role and Matter Mercer specifically as DM, is how much love and time have gone into the game and the world building. Like you can tell he really cares about this and it's fun to see and I'm excited to get together with some of my friends and adventure in Wildemount with this guide now!

    Wow! How amazing is this?! Starting off as a fan, gaining traction as an amazing, world-renowned DM, then having your own home brew world building content as official D&D canon? I'm sure this must've been one of Matt's dreams since childhood. So happy to see him get the corporate approved recognition he so much deserves!! Can't wait to get my hands on this book. Congratulations!

  • Lucas\\\

    Jesus Christ is officially making the bible 2 I can't believe it's gonna be official D&D content

  • jackyboy777666

    I can't decide if I want to start playing DND myself or just remain a fan/spectator?! I love Critical Role.
