Dungeons & Dragons has been enchanting players with its elaborate worldbuilding, fantasy elements, and memorable dice-rolling moments, but it can be a lot for newcomers to take in. That’s where the D&D Starter Set: Dragons of Stormwreck Isle comes into play with a host of guidance materials for adventuring neophytes.
The package will include a streamlined rulebook and accompanying online video tutorials, heroic ready-to-play characters, a set of six dice, and an exciting adventure designed with new Dungeon Masters. Players can jump into uncovering the secrets of Stormwreck Isle once they have chosen a character sheet from five recognisable heroes, such as the paladin or the wizard.
“If you’ve never played or even heard of Dungeons & Dragons before, THIS is the best, easiest way to get you started,” said Team Product Manager, Natalie Egan. “Dragons of Stormwreck Isle is a blast of an adventure that is sure to delight our fans, whether it’s their first time or 101st time playing D&D.”
To welcome new enthusiasts on board, newly-designed D&D Club kits have also been set aside for schools, libraries and organisations that want to incorporate the educational and social benefits of the world’s greatest roleplaying game into their programs. In the U.S, series-inspired teaching kits will be rolling out for grades four to eight starting this Fall.
D&D Starter Set: Dragons of Stormwreck Isle is now retailing at US$19.99 on Target only, with a worldwide release set for 4 October 2022. It’ll be available in English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Spanish and Japanese on launch.
