In what may be a notable first, an upcoming Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook was released digitally first, due to a delay in the print edition caused by pandemic precautions. Mythic Odysseys of Theros, a crossover with the Magic: The Gathering card game world, originally scheduled for release on June 2, was not available in printed form at game stores and other retailers until July 21.

“The printers Dungeons & Dragons depends upon to create the fantastic additions to your RPG collection have been closed to keep everyone safe during this time,” Wizards of the Coast said in a statement released on social media.

Set in the Magic: The Gathering world of Theros, players can wield a god’s weapon and play using new race options as they embark on a challenge fit for the gods. Select a supernatural gift, aligning your character with one of Theros’ 15 gods and carve a tale of odysseys and ordeals on your personal path to destiny. The new sourcebook introduces the Bard’s College of Eloquence and the Paladin’s Oath of Heroism, even as it presents players with the challenge of mythic monsters. Destiny and immortal schemes lead the players’ characters through challenges previously unknown, leaving behind an odyssey that will be celebrated in the athenaeum of legends writ among the eternal stars.

Digital platforms such as Roll 20, Fantasy Grounds and D&D Beyond, however, got Mythic Odyssey of Theros content on the original release date of June 2. And brick-and-mortar game stores that are part of the Wizards Play Network will be able to offer a physical reference map for use with encounters and monsters in the book as well as unique codes to the first 20 fans who pre-ordered or bought Mythic Odysseys of Theros for 50% off the price of its digital version on D&D Beyond.

Mythic Odysseys of Theros is available in a standard hardcover, above left, and a special-edition cover only available at hobby stores, above right.

There’s also a ton of related material available digitally from the community of creators at the Dungeon Masters Guild online storefront, if 256 pages just isn’t enough.
