The return of the Planescape campaign setting in Fall 2023 will be revealed in Dungeons & Dragons' three-book slipcase featuring a setting guide, bestiary, and adventure campaign.
Planescape, a classic PC game, takes a look at the deep cosmology of the D&D universe by allowing players to jump between various planes. These include other traditional D&D settings on the Material Planes, the Inner Planes, which represent elemental forces, and the Outer Planes, which are ruled by gods, angels, and demons.
The city of Sigil is a popular interplanar travel destination, with complex factions and a mysterious ruler, known as the Lady of Pain. Players are encouraged to join one of the 15 factions that are united by a philosophy on the meaning of life. Members use magic to store their memories for others to experience them. The Harmonium police Sigil because they believe that they should rule all of reality to maintain stability and peace.
The eerie aasimar, the elementally aspected genasi, and the fiendish tieflings have become standard D&D items since their introduction as planetouched people. In a July Unearthed Arcana release, glitchlings were introduced, a new player option similar to rogue modrons. In Planescape, modrons are constructs that enforce the laws of law and order from the Clockwork Nirvana of Mechanus.
Mays Unearthed Arcana: Giant Options was also serving as a preview for Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants, which will be released in spring 2023, which will serve as a companion to Fizbans Treasury of Dragons with a focus on giants.
Keys from the Golden Vault, described by D&D story architect Chris Perkins as Oceans 11 meets Dungeons & Dragons, will be released in Winter 2023. The book will expand on the popular book's expansion of the Lost Mine of Phandelvermini campaign.
The Book of Many Things will be released in summer 2023. The player-facing book will feature creatures, locations, and other content related to the iconic artifact, the Deck of Many Things. It's extremely risky as it can either bring tremendous rewards or afflict your character with terrible curses that can only be removed by the most powerful magic.
