Strixhaven Arrives in Dungeons and Dragons

Wizards of the Coast announces more crossover material with a brand new Magic The Gathering supplement for Dungeons and Dragons.

The announcement came through a page listing at D&D Beyond. The name of the supplement is Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos, and it will allow players to create characters and face unique challenges based on the recent Magic set, Strixhaven. While the store page itself doesn't give any details regarding new creatures or even new subclasses for players to mess around with, there is a pre-order bonus that includes new customization for your digital character sheet as well as Strixhaven-themed digital dice when using the D&D Beyond app. The book will be available on November 16th and will cost $29.99

It's not the first time these two have crossed over, and it probably won't be the last.

However, if you can't wait to see the secrets of Strixhaven, there is material for it available right now in Unearthed Arcana. Simply put, Unearthed Arcana is playtest material for Dungeons and Dragons. Ideas, subclasses, creatures, optional rules, and mechanics are all tested out and refined with this open-source material. Naturally, this means the Strixhaven Unearthed Arcana might not be properly balanced or may even be incomplete in spots, but if you want a sneak peek as to what the final version might entail, give it a read.

This kind of crossover is more than expected given recent years. Both Magic and Dungeons and Dragons are massive fantasy franchises that span multiple worlds, different dimensions, and range from the gruesome and gothic to the grand and cosmic. In fact, this isn't even the first major crossover supplement D&D has had with this franchise; that honor goes to the Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica supplement. This summer we're expecting the first cross-over going the other way with Adventures in Forgotten Realms being a Magic: The Gathering set featuring a Dungeons and Dragons world and many of its characters. If you're more of a Dungeons and Dragons purist, there are other source books for pre-order that may catch your eye like The Wild Beyond The Witchlight, but if you are enjoying seeing the likes of Planeswalkers facing Beholders, mark your calendars.
