The Wilds Beyond the Witchlight – The Details

This newest sourcebook is described as a wickedly whimsical adventure for the 5th edition. The Wilds Beyond the Witchlight is not only bringing the feywild to the fore for the first time but also will bring new characters, monsters, mechanics, and story hooks suitable for players of all ages and experience levels.

More detail about the content of the book will be revealed at D&D Live this year on July 16 & 17 2021. G4 will host the event. If you want additional details, check out this announcement.

Whilst we may have to wait for the specific details to be released, it seems likely that some of the new content will be from March’s Unearthed Arcana. Wizards of the Coast unveiled four new playable races hailing from the feywild. For the details, check out our announcement article.

In terms of release date and price, the hardcover sourcebook is out for pre-order now for $49.95 at various online retailers. Additionally, it will release on September 21st 2021.
