Wizards of the Coast announces D&D Celebration
Wizards of the Coast have announced D&D Celebration, a three day virtual event focusing on the fans and community of the world’s original and best roleplaying game. From Saturday 19 September to Monday 21 September, fans can gather to enjoy live panels, streamed live gameplay, and participate in the biggest virtual tabletop game ever. In addition, players will preview new content from Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything, a massive rules update featuring a wealth of new content for players to customise their games.
More than a thousand concurrent players will take part in the largest virtual D&D game ever on Saturday 19 September (PT) | Sunday 20 September (AEST), to celebrate the launch of Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. The game will be administered by the D&D Adventurers League with players from separate games all working towards the same goal to defend Icewind Dale.
Wizards of the Coast will announce the event’s schedule and list of global participants in the coming weeks.

Players can sign up to participate in the largest virtual D&D game ever through the D&D Adventurers League here. All proceeds from tickets for D&D Adventurers League play will go to support Extra Life benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the US.
D&D Celebration will be the first opportunity to learn more about Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything which will bring a bevy of new classes, feats, spells, items, puzzles and more to the game. This will be the biggest rules update to D&D since Xanathar’s Guide to Everything’s release nearly three years ago.
“The special witchcraft of Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything is the freedom it gives you to personalise your D&D character in new ways,” said Jeremy Crawford, the book’s lead designer and the principal rules designer of Dungeons & Dragons. "D&D adventurers are exceptional,and this book gives you the tools to make them and their story even more extraordinary.”
Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything is further testament to the dedication of the D&D community as it incorporates over a year of playtest feedback from thousands of community members. The full contents of Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything will be served everywhere on Tuesday 17 November, 2020 with pre-orders available now from www.amazon.com.au/dnd.
