The Entire Module
It’s in there.
We’ve broken it up into individual books to make it easier to navigate. In addition, most of the illustrations have been put onto separate pages to make them easier to reference or show your players during the game. Each one is marked with the encounter it’s associated with. Some of the illustrations are unique to the Platinum Edition and won’t be found anywhere else.
Here’s some other words.
Terrifying. Huge. Impressive.
Here’s another one. Unique. As in, this is the only place you can get this exact type of Infernal War Machine. See that wheel of death up front? That’s unique to our Platinum Edition.
There are things that want you dead
And they will have their say. So it’s vitally important that you have maps that tell you how far away they are, and just how many you can line up with that sweet lightning bolt.
You do have one left, right? Because, like I said, the things rallying around the corner, exactly six squares away, do not come in peace.
The Platinum Edition Battle Maps include the following:
Dead 3 (8 maps in total)
The Scab (you don’t want to know)
Wrecked Flying Fortress
Something we’re calling Terrain Kit
AND THIS. You’ll need lots of these
Try not to think of the price
What is it… Is something in there, something trying so desperately, so futilely, to escape?
get the big picture
It’s probably bad, but you’d be better off seeing the whole picture, right?
Big, beautiful maps that you can use to plan your way forward, or map out your retreat. After all, it’s the just the world, right? Someone else will save it.
Dungeon Master Screens
Not just one
You’re going places!
Baldur’s Gate needs its own stats and maps. Avernus, well, that’s Hell, and you need a lot of information at your fingertips to understand just how out of luck your adventurers really are.
You know them, you love them. Over 40 of the sharpest teeth and fangs in all their glory.
Front side is so the players can see what’s rending them.
Back side so you have all the stats for the rend.
Jewelry AND HANDOUTS
You’re going to need badges, and we’ve got ‘em.
You’re going to… need too strong? WANT other things as well. And they’re in there, but we can’t explain them yet. Assume it’s diabolical, infernal, and yes, binding in all the worst ways.
Letters, contracts of introduction, magic item cards(!), menus of infernal delights, all ready to hand to your players. Here are a few. More to come.
If you want to see a beautiful selection of our previous handouts, click here.
I’m not going to say anything about this. Just… take it in, mull it over, and wonder what’s behind those adorable, blank eyes.
I think we’re piling on at this point
Wherein we reap the whirlwind of letting Beadle get involved in the design process.
That’s him, on the left. Yes, the one spilling his ale.
The other fellow is Grimm. He also should not have been in on the design meetings.
And yet more
A free copy of the online version of the book from DnD Beyond. A soundtrack from Syrinscape. Not one, not two, but three (3!) Adventures League Certificates that your players can earn (assuming all goes well).
Is that all?
Lord no. There’s Pre-built Characters, Bonus Encounters, and a ton of other stuff, but that’s all we have time for today, as the analytics department has some kind of rule about how many pages of scrolling content are allowed.
But while we’re here, let’s ask the Supreme Marketing Goblin some questions:
So when does it actually ship?
We start shipping in October. We should have an exact date after the last few moving pieces stop fidgeting.
So when do i get my codes?
DnD Beyond codes will get emailed to you a within a day or two of when you order the box.
Syrinscape codes will go out later this month.
what else is in the box?
Take a look at the Platinum Edition of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist for ideas. Now that the Baldur’s Gate Descent into Avernus is out, we’re going to keep showing more, and more. You can expect, nay, demand, that it will be even more epic than last year’s Platinum Edition. We are in our ascension.
How many are you going to make?
We’re selling 1000.
But what happens when we run out? Are we going to make more?
No. No we are not.
So how should that change your behavior? That’s up to you. But we did run out of the Platinum Edition of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, so choose wisely.
How many are left?
We are down to less than 100 left.
So Buy Now!
