I’ve only really played Dungeons and Dragons since the 4th edition, and have only dabbled in 5e. There are scores of new players like me who have never had the chance to play classic campaigns like Tomb of Horrors, or White Plume Mountain. Wizards of the Coast is fixing that with Tales from the Yawning Portal that updates those campaigns with new states and monsters that work perfectly in 5e.
The cover of Tales from the Yawning Portal was illustrated by Tyler Jacobsen. It depicts Durnan the Wanderer, the longtime owner and barkeep of Waterdeep’s most famous tavern. Adventurers from all over the Forgotten Realms gather in the taproom at the Yawning Portal to trade stories of their exploits and rumors of far-off treasures, some even from other worlds in the D&D multiverse. The Yawning Portal is the one place you’d expect to hear tales of the seven dungeons in this book.
Tales from the Yawning Portal is 248-pages and contains seven full adventures including Forge of Fury and Dead in Thay. Tales from the Yawning Portal is scheduled to arrive on April 4, 2017.
