Dungeons and Dragons Announces D&D Live 2019: The Descent
It’s a better title than “The Stream of Many Eyes 2: The Re-Eye-Stream-ening”
By Jon Ryan
The Dungeons & Dragons team at Wizards of the Coast have announced their 2019 reveal event, a follow-up to last year’s Stream of Many Eyes, entitled D&D Live: The Descent. The event, running from May 17-19, 2019, is centered around revealing the next adventure module for D&D 5th edition, as well as showcasing community creations and previewing additional D&D content. The entire event will be streamed on the official Dungeons & Dragons Twitch channel.
In addition to live gameplay sessions previewing the upcoming adventure, the weekend-long stream will feature appearances from guests such as actor (and huge D&D fan) Matthew Lillard, fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss, musical performances produced by The Decemberists’ Chris Funk, and the casts of several popular D&D-themed podcasts and shows. Badges can be purchased starting April 9th, 2019, though they run in short supply and cost $300 USD. From the official announcement: A 3-day badge earns you access to the following D&D experiences: Witness the unveiling of the new D&D storyline on Friday evening, live from the studio audience Play a 3-hour session of a D&D Adventurers League Epic previewing elements from the new storyline on Saturday or Sunday Grab a D&D swag bag including merch from D&D partners and an advance copy of Ghosts of Saltmarsh Watch D&D played live by the biggest D&D personalities in the studio audience on Friday and Saturday nights Mingle with D&D partners & other characters in the story-themed marketplace area & participate in the cosplay storyline interspersed throughout the event Catch the live music performance celebrating D&D from artists assembled by Chris Funk on Sunday night to close out D&D Live 2019: The Descent

JR is IGN’s Senior Editor of Features and is seriously considering taking time off work to go to this. If he does, he’ll probably post about it on Twitter.
