Current Clack

  • Movie news! Plot details of the Dungeons & Dragons movie have been reported, giving character names, the gold dragon Palarandusk, and a quest for the Eye of Vecna! (Better that than the Head...) True or not, we have all the details compiled.
  • Regis87 wanted us to hit 30,000 articles before the end of the year, but we got there much earlier than that. The lucky 30,000th article is the ring of animal influence from Sir Whiteout, who powered to the finish line with an arsenal of magic items and a tree full of trained monkeys banging away on keyboards.
  • Sorry for the lack of clacks; I was attacked by a vasuthant and lost all track of time. Now, let's catch up.
  • Moviesign has been wandering Cormyr, getting gossip from court ladies Darlutheene Ambershields and Blaerla Roaringhorn about exiled noble Sabran Cormaeril. Later, he was a guest of Ingleiyr Tammarast, the rustic lord of Landuth, enjoying a humble meal that included the rare treat of pumpkin.
Brawl at the Yawning Portal-5e

The fight for 30k won't be like this, we promise.

VGTC Wheloon
Wheloon was a small city in the kingdom of Cormyr, lying where the Way of the Manticore crossed the Wyvernflow River. A town sprawling across both sides of the river, it was sometimes nicknamed the "Jade Towers" for its ubiquitous green slate roof tiles. Wheloon grew up around the Wyvern Ferry crossing, linking Cormyr's two busiest trade routes, and becoming one of the kingdom's most prosperous and industrious towns. It was famous for its talented craftsfolk and entrepreneurs, who built boats and wagons, fashioned baskets, grew fruit and other foodstuffs, bred pets, and created cheap transport companies.

Though it once was the site of a battle with the Witch Lords and was one of those places conquered by the Lost King Gondegal, Wheloon oft-enjoyed only a small role in Cormyr's history, thanks to rulers like Lord Sarp Redbeard who worked for the good of Wheloon, rather than that of the crown. Unfortunately, it later hosted a false temple to Mystra, which was found to be a front for cultists of Shar, and was eventually turned into a prison city for Shar worshipers and Shadovar, and its cobbled streets came to be dominated by gangs of rogues.

New & Upcoming Releases

Baldur's Gate Descent into Avernus cover
Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus by Christopher Perkins is a 5th-edition Dungeons & Dragons adventure module released on September 17, 2019. It sees players adventure from Baldur's Gate down to Avernus, the first of the Nine Hells.
Welcome to Baldur's Gate, a city of ambition and corruption situated at the crossroads of the Sword Coast. You've just started your adventuring career, but already find yourself embroiled in a plot that sprawls from the shadows of Baldur's Gate to the front lines of the planes-spanning Blood War! Do you have what it takes to turn infernal war machines and nefarious contracts against the archdevil Zariel and her diabolical hordes? And can you ever hope to find your way home safely when pitted against the infinite evils of the Nine Hells?
Boundless cover
Boundless by R.A. Salvatore is the second entry in the Generations trilogy featuring Drizzt Do'Urden. It was released on September 10th. The novel's story is split into two parts: one following Drizzt in the present time of the Realms, and the other focusing on Zaknafein and Jarlaxle's adventures in the distant past.
Split between time and two worlds, Zaknafein had always been conflicted. That inner turmoil was magnified by his inferior position as a male dark elf in the matriarchal drow society. Only his status as one of the greatest warriors—as well as his friendship with the mercenary Jarlaxle—kept him sane. When he finally perished, he was content knowing he left behind a legacy as substantial as his son Drizzt...
Dragon+ 28 cover
Dragon+ #28 was released on October 30, 2019.

For the Realms, this issue gives previews of the Warriors of Waterdeep mobile game, a Tyranny of Dragons Special Edition, a Descent into Avernus Soundpack, and new Icons of the Realms. There are articles on the Nine Hells, infernal war machines, and neo-otyughs, and a short story set in Elturel, as well as Maps of the Month for Baldur's Gate.

65DX ToA ProductShot
Tomb of Annihilation, designed by Christopher Perkins, Will Doyle, Steve Winter, and Adam Lee, is an adventure module set in the Forgotten Realms using the Dungeons & Dragons 5th-edition ruleset. Set in the late 15th century DR, it explores the distant land of Chult and introduces the mighty lich Acererak to the Realms.
Dare to defy death in this adventure for the world's greatest roleplaying game.

The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who's ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.

When they finally succumb, they can't be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.

The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.

Today in the Realms...

...it is 13 Nightal, or the 13th of the Drawing Down. Selûne is a waning crescent moon 🌘. On this day:

  • Worshipers of Garl Glittergold celebrate the Communion of Laughter with various activities.
  • Worshipers of Tyr perform the ritual of the Maiming at which a giant gauntleted hand appears above the congregation and then disappears in an illusion of flaming blood.
