The Tales from the Yawning Portal adventure compilation was recently announced by Wizards of the Coast as the next adventure release for Dungeons & Dragons. This new book takes a novel format for D&D 5e adventures. Instead of one level spanning adventure, it is a series of dungeon crawls taken from every edition of D&D’s past. Each adventure is a separate story which can be played in order or they can be used to fill in between your other D&D Adventurers League adventures.

When the shadows grow long in Waterdeep and the fireplace in the taproom of the Yawning Portal dims to a deep crimson glow, adventurers from across the Forgotten Realms, and even from other worlds, spin tales and spread rumors of dark dungeons and lost treasures. Some of the yarns overheard by Durnan, the barkeep of the Yawning Portal, are inspired by places and events in far-flung lands from across the D&D multiverse, and these tales have been collected into a single volume.

Within this tome are seven of the most compelling dungeons from the 40+ year history of Dungeons & Dragons. Some are classics that have hosted an untold number of adventurers, while others are some of the most popular adventures ever printed.

The seeds of these stories now rest in your hands. D&D’s most storied dungeons are now part of your modern repertoire of adventures. Enjoy, and remember to keep a few spare character sheets handy.

For use with the fifth edition Player’s Handbook, Monster Manual, and Dungeon Master’s Guide, this book provides fans with adventures, magic items and deadly monsters, all of which have been updated to the fifth edition rules. Explore seven deadly dungeons in this adventure supplement for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

Tales from the Yawning Portal includes the following adventures:

  • Against the Giants
  • Dead in Thay
  • Forge of Fury
  • Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan
  • Sunless Citadel
  • Tomb of Horrors
  • White Plume Mountain

D&D Adventurers League Play

Since this season is already a series of shorter adventures (compared to the long campaigns of previous seasons), the D&D Adventurers League will release modules that tie into several of the Tales from the Yawning Portal adventures. The six adventures are directly tied to an adventure as a sequel, a prequel, or expand on some aspect of it. In addition, three of the six adventures are Epic adventures and are paired with one of the three other adventures.

    Team Yankee is a techno-thriller novel written in 1987 by Harold Coyle, then a major in the United States Army, whose subject is the actions of a company-sized armor unit of the United States Army in the World War III scenario as depicted by General Sir John Hackett in his novel, The Third World War: The Untold Story.

    Now you can take to the field commanding the US Army, or their NATO allies Britain, and West Germany. Or cross over to the Iron Curtain and command a Soviet, or East German force and press this hypothetical WW3 engagement in 15mm onto the table.
