D&D: Rage of Demons

What’s the biggest, baddest dungeon in Dungeons & Dragons? I’d have to go with the Underdark, the cavernous maze that spans an entire game world. This world under the world is the setting for Wizards of the Coast’s next storyline, Rage of Demons.

And yes, there’s a Drizzt.

The main concept behind the new storyline involves a demonic invasion of the Underdark with adventurers traveling “with the iconic hero Drizzt Do’Urden”. Like the previous storylines, Rage of Demons will be told through the tabletop roleplaying game and electronic (PC and Xbox One) games. The Neverwinter: Underdark expansion for the Neverwinter MMO will be released in 2015 (with the Xbox version coming after the PC version) while the Out of the Abyss adventure for D&D 5th Edition is scheduled for the fall. Partner companies WizKids, who have developed games for the D&D line; Gale Force Nine, who did the DM Screens for the earlier storyline adventures; and Smiteworks, who have developed Fantasy Grounds, a virtual tabletop product supporting D&D, are all on board for Rage of Demons.

Earlier storylines had their tabletop campaigns developed by third-party companies: Tyranny of Dragons’ Hoard of the Dragon Queen and Rise of Tiamat were developed by Wolfgang Bauer’s Kobold Press while Elemental Evil’s Princes of the Apocalypse was developed by Rich Baker’s Sasquatch Game Studio. Out of Abyss will be developed by Green Ronin, who have previously done the Dragon Age RPG, A Song of Ice and Fire RPG, the Freeport setting for D&D 3.5 (and Paizo’s Pathfinder game), among others. Out of the Abyss will be a single volume book, like Princes of the Apocalypse.

CyvasseFor those you are fans of A Song of Ice and Fire, you already know what I’m talking about when I mention the game Cyvasse. For those who aren’t, the game is one from George R. R. Martin’s famous series of fantasy books.

There’s not a whole lot of information about the game in the books, but there was enough for people to go on. One such person, Michael Le Page, fleshed out a game from the books and manufactured a set using 3D printing. The rules of his game have changed over the course of development, but you can now purchase Cyvasse sets on Shapeways for  around $305 total at its cheapest.

It’s a bit pricey, so I doubt many people except for die-hard fans are going to bite. If something like this ever reached a reasonable price you can be sure I’d be in line to snag a set. The look of the board and pieces tickle me in just the right way.
