During this past weekend’s D&D Celebration, Wizards of the Coast revealed a new gift set for Dungeons & Dragons coming in 2022.
The D&D Rules Expansion Gift Set is a perfect addition for the Dungeon Masters and D&D players in your life (or yourself, of course) who want to level up their libraries beyond the core rulebooks. The set contains new printings of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything, and a new volume, Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse, which collects and revises tons of D&D material released since the launch of fifth edition into one convenient tome. Those three books plus a Dungeon Master’s Screen are all contained in a beautiful slipcase.
The D&D Rules Expansion Gift Set will be available on store shelves starting on January 25, 2022, with standard covers by Grzegorz Rutkowski (Monsters of the Multiverse, DM’s Screen and slipcase), Magali Villeneuve (Tasha’s), and Jason Rainville (Xanathar’s) featuring a shiny foil treatment while the new alternate covers designed by Joy Ang. Monsters of the Multiverse will be available as a standalone later in the year.
Monsters of the Multiverse contains more than 250 monster stat blocks and over 30 playable races from various sources including Volo’s Guide to Monsters, The Tortle Package, and Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes. The updated content in Monsters of the Multiverse will be available for purchase on digital platforms when the book is available as a standalone. Fans can continue to use older content from previous releases, but a purchase of Monsters of the Multiverse is necessary to access all the new and updated content.
