Dungeons & Dragons 5E will receive a set of adventures based on Magic: The Gathering expansion Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, with the first of five episodes due out next week.
The upcoming scenarios for D&D 5E are said to include elements from the MTG expansion, the first Magic: The Gathering set to draw directly from Dungeons & Dragons’ expansive setting.
Adventures in the Forgotten Realms will feature monsters, characters and items from throughout D&D history, as well as introducing the new Venture keyword, allowing players to explore three of the RPG’s iconic dungeons during matches.
Publisher Wizards of the Coast said that the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms scenarios would replace the story entries typically released in the run-up to a new Magic: The Gathering set, which provide details on each expansion's lore and characters.
Each D&D 5E adventure will be free to download, and will run for approximately 15 to 20 pages. The scenarios are designed for characters from level eight to 10.
While the episodes will be playable in D&D 5E, and follow previous sourcebooks for the RPG based on MTG planes Theros and Ravnica, as well as this year's upcoming Strixhaven: Curriculum of Chaos setting book, Wizards of the Coast confirmed that the two games remain separate in terms of canon, with no plans for their respective multiverses to officially merge.
Five Adventures in the Forgotten Realms episodes will be released for Dungeons & Dragons 5E ahead of the set’s launch, with the first due for release on June 29th.
Magic: The Gathering - Adventures in the Forgotten Realms will be available in MTG Arena and MTG Online from July 15th, with a wide release on July 23rd.
