Upcoming D&D sourcebook Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons focuses on all things Draconic in Dungeons and Dragons
At D&D Live 2021, we learned about the next sourcebook for 5th Edition: Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons. Shortly before the event, Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons showed up on both Amazon and D&D Beyond, so I’m comfortable saying that’s what we’re talking about in the first D&D Live panel of the day. The book will arrive on October 26, 2021, and it heavily features the Archmage Fizban, who you may remember from the original Dragonlance novel series. This isn’t exactly a shock, based on the earlier Unearthed Arcana playtest we saw with various Draconic options, and the fact that the book is written from the perspective of Fizban will definitely fuel speculation that we’re getting more Dragonlance content sooner rather than later.
It’s fair to say that Fizban knows a thing or two about Dragons. And to be fair, the Amazon entry isn’t exactly being coy about the source of that knowledge:
Discover everything there is to know about dragons—the most iconic of D&D monsters—in this quintessential reference guide.
Meet Fizban the Fabulous: doddering archmage, unlikely war hero, divine avatar of a dragon-god—and your guide to the mysteries of dragonkind.
What is the difference between a red dragon and a gold dragon? What is dragonsight? How does a dragon’s magic impact the world around them? This comprehensive guide provides Dungeon Masters with a rich hoard of tools and information for designing dragon-themed encounters, adventures, and campaigns. Dragonslayers and dragon scholars alike will also appreciate its insight into harnessing the power of dragon magic and options for players to create unique, memorable draconic characters.
• Introduces gem dragons to fifth edition!
• Provides Dungeon Masters with tools to craft adventures inspired by dragons, including dragon lair maps and detailed information about 20 different types of dragons
• Adds player character options, including dragon-themed subclasses for monks and rangers, unique draconic ancestries for dragonborn, additional spell options, and a feat
• Presents a complete dragon bestiary and introduces a variety of dragons and dragon-related creatures—including aspects of the dragon gods, dragon minions, and more
• Reveals the story of the First World and the role the dragon gods Bahamut and Tiamat played in its creation and destruction
We’ll have to wait for today’s deep dive panel to find out more, but you can pre-order the book on D&D Beyond as well as Amazon, so you can start using the new rules as soon as they’re available. Will this book introduce Dragonlance creatures like the Draconians? Will Paladine — the god Fizban was an avatar of — and Takhisis be revealed to be Bahamut and Tiamat, once and for all? How are the new draconic ancestries going to tie into the Dragonborn? Are we going to see Io, the parent of all Dragons? There’s a lot left to find out and I’m very excited for this book, I can’t wait for it to come out.
