Today, announced the next D&D show to debut under their hit Dimension 20 banner. Entitled The Ravening War, the campaign will bring together an all-star group of players in an adventure led by none other than Critical Role’s Matt Mercer. Check out the new trailer now:

The Ravening War is a dark, twisty prequel to the hugely popular Dimension 20: A Crown of Candy (trailer here) – based on the creative premise of a “Game of Thrones meets Candyland” world. This comes a year after Dimension 20‘s Brennan Lee Mulligan hosted the prequel event miniseries, Exandria Unlimited: Calamity, on Critical Role last summer. Now, their roles flipped – Critical Role’s Mercer is hosting the prequel event miniseries for Dimension 20, and Mulligan joins the series as a player at the table.

Dimension 20: The Ravening War is set to be an all-star series for the D&D community where Game Master Matt Mercer, is joined by Brennan Lee Mulligan (Dimension 20, Worlds Beyond Number), Lou Wilson (Dimension 20, Worlds Beyond Number), Zac Oyama (Dimension 20, Not Another D&D Podcast), Aabria Iyengar (Dimension 20, Worlds Beyond Number), and Anjali Bhimani (Overwatch, Ms. Marvel). Matt has previously appeared as a guest on Dimension 20, but this is first time leading a campaign for the show. Aabria was the DM for the first two series of Exandria Unlimited and is a recurring character in the current Critical Role campaign Hell’s Bells. Wilson and Oyama were players in A Crown of Candy as well, where Mulligan served as GM.

The Ultimate TTRPG Tarot Offers Up Much More Than Collectible Novelty

The Ultimate TTRPG Tarot is based on the classic Rider-Waite Tarot deck, and doesn't do much to alter the overall style of the deck. Instead, Zachary Bacus and colorist Hank Jones replaced the classical esoteric imagery with things straight out of a D&D game. For instance High Priestess has become a Mindflayer, albeit a nerdy one with glasses and a DMG. The art also reflects the overall humor of the cards, which is stuffed to the gills with references and in-jokes straight out of a TTRPG convention. It's sort of like if you mixed a tarot deck up with a game of Munchkin. That writing comes from Jef Aldrich and Jon Taylor, hosts of the System Mastery podcast, who bring their pretty wide experience in tabletop to bear in this deck.
