Last year, the Dungeons & Dragons creative team resurrected their “Endless Quest” brand of “Choose Your Own Adventure”-style books with four releases highlighting the character classes of fighter, rogue, wizard and cleric. This fall, two new volumes will join the line: The Mad Mage’s Academy, starring you as a rogue, and Escape From Castle Ravenloft, starring you as a cleric.
In Escape From Castle Ravenloft: “You have entered the mist-shrouded realm of Ravenloft, where you attract the attention of Count Strahd, who decides to make you one of his vampire spawn. After awakening to find yourself alone within the walls of Castle Ravenloft, you must figure out how to escape the vampire lord’s Gothic lair before you are doomed to become his slave for all time. Keep your wits about you, cleric. “
In The Mad Mage’s Academy: “You have been tasked with stealing the spell book of Halaster Blackcloak, the mad mage who controls the halls of Undermountain. The book is secreted away inside the halls of a magic academy, so you must navigate your way in by posing as a new student. But you need to move quickly in order to locate the spell book, steal it, and get away without being caught by the mad mage himself. Be on your guard, rogue.”
Both books by returning author Matt Forbeck are set for release Sept. 3, 2019, in both soft- and hardcover variants. You can pre-order them at the links and thumbnails above.
