Matt recently revealed the covers for two new books in the series that will be published in September this year.
Escape from Castle Ravenloft is especially noteworthy because it is the only book so far to be associated with a D&D setting other than the Forgotten Realms. All the books in the series have tie ins to current D&D Adventure Sourcebooks. The Mad Mage's Academy is tied to Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage for instance.
More Isle of Dread material from WotC would make fans of BECMI D&D and fans of Mystara happy. The setting has been teased in numerous D&D5E books, but Isle of Dread is the only book to fully embrace the setting.

Sorry about the slightly Click-baity nature of this headline :)ReplyDelete
Apparently there are no new ideas anymore.ReplyDelete
I just got back to Korea after a month in the States. What sorts of TV show commercials did I see? Magnum P.I., Hawaii 5-0, S.W.A.T., etc. Why make something new and interesting when you can just remake something old?Delete
Of course, if the networks REALLY wanted to save money, they could just start repeating the ACTUAL old shows from the 70s/80s again. :)
