D&D Direct 2022 – Spelljammer, Campaign Cases, and Dragonlance!

D&D Direct revealed several new things coming to the world of Dungeons and Dragons in 2022! In case you missed it (or you’re just looking for the highlights), here’s a look at the shiny stuff coming to your table this year.

Spelljammer: Adventures in Space

The return of classic settings to D&D continues with the announcement of a new Spelljammer box set! Spelljammer: Adventures in Space includes three 64-page hardcover books, a DM screen, and a double-sided poster map of the Rock of Bral.

The first book, The Astral Adventurer’s Guide, contains setting information for players and DMs, new character options, spells, and magic items. There are also six new playable races: Astral Elves, Autognomes, Hadozee, Giff, Plasmoids, and Thri-Kreen!

Even better, this box set will come with a choice of standard or alternate covers. The alternate covers are exclusive to brick and mortar stores, so make sure to get your preorder in ASAP!

Expected release date: August 16th 2022

Campaign Cases: Creatures / Terrain

These portable campaign cases provide you with everything you need to fill your adventure with creatures or terrain!

The Creature Campaign Case includes weighted plastic discs in three sizes and four colours and five sheets of illustrated creatures. The creatures are re-usable clings, so you can easily remove and re-apply them to the discs as much as you like! All of this comes with removable token storage trays and a sturdy creature folder in a durable case with magnetic closure and rope handle.

The Terrain Campaign Case includes 30 double-sided terrain tiles with interlocking sides and five sheets of terrain scenery clings, making it easy to assemble dungeon, city, and wilderness maps with plenty of features and details. This also comes with a storage folder for your scenery clings in a durable case with magnetic closure and rope handle.

Expected release date: July 19th 2022

D&D Starter Set: Dragons of Stormwreck Isle

We knew this was coming, but it’s nice to see the brand new starter set in more detail! Like other Starter Sets, it includes everything you need to begin playing D&D, including a streamlined rule set, five character sheets, and a set of dice. We also see a brand new starting adventure, Dragons of Stormwreck Isle, which we’re really looking forward to! (I may be a big fan of dragons…)

Expected release date: October 4th 2022

D&D Digital Library

The announcement of a new D&D Digital Library has us pretty excited! New content will be available to anyone with a Wizards account (which is easy to sign up for if you don’t have one yet!). It looks like this content will also be available to those with D&D Beyond accounts, which is not a big surprise considering their recent acquisition! Right now you can download the Monster Compendium Vol 1: Spelljammer Creatures, and a special prequel adventure called Spelljammer Academy will go up in July 2022.

Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen

A new adventure book in the Dragonlance setting has been confirmed! Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen is expected in late 2022. We don’t have any more details than this as yet, so keep an eye out for preorder information as soon as we get it!

If that’s not enough for you, there was plenty of other information in the D&D Direct stream, including board games, miniatures, live play streams, and the upcoming film (including the title and release date!). You can watch the whole stream here for those details.

Want to preorder anything you see here? No problem! Just send us an email and we’ll add you to the preorder list. We don’t yet have any confirmed prices, but we’ll aim to make these available as soon as we can!
