Wizards of the Coast today announced D&D Celebration 2020, a three-day virtual event focusing on the fans and community of the world’s original and best roleplaying game. From Saturday September 19 to Monday September 21, D&D fans can gather to enjoy Icewind Dale–themed live panels, streamed live gameplay, and participate in the biggest virtual tabletop game ever.
In addition, players will preview new content from Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything, a forthcoming book set for release in November 2020 featuring massive rules options, subclasses, and more for the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons.
“The special witchcraft of Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything is the freedom it gives you to personalise your D&D character in new ways,” said Jeremy Crawford, the book’s lead designer and the principal rules designer of Dungeons & Dragons. “D&D adventurers are exceptional, and this book gives you the tools to make them and their story even more extraordinary.”
More than a thousand concurrent players, including celebrities and local influencers, are expected to take part in D&D Celebration 2020, the largest virtual D&D game, all working towards the same goal. Wizards of the Coast will announce the event’s schedule and list of global participants in the coming weeks.
Some of the local ANZ participants include:
Interested players and their parties can register for games through the D&D Celebration Event Portal. Once registered, players can sign up for D&D Adventurers League game sessions, including 2-hour adventures aimed at levels 1-4, with new D&D Epic Dungeon Masters.
