Word of Wizards - May Editorial Calendar

May Editorial Calendar

The May Editorial Calendar is up, so mark your calendars for some of these tentatively scheduled highlights. Please be aware that the editorial calendar serves only as a rough guideline and Wizards have been known to not to stick to the exact date at times.

  • Monster Manual 2 excerpts will continue until the week before the 19th when the book will be officially released.

  • Starting on the 18th, we will start seeing excerpts from the Eberron Campaign Guide which I'm really excited about!

  • There is probably some free monster stats from the Forgotten Realms novel; Restless Shore that will be out on 18th.

  • The usually monthly features such as Steal This Hook! Spotlight Interview, Use This Book Tonight, Vicious Venues, D&D Alumni and maybe a couple of podcasts.

Subscriber content:
  • The playtest for Monks in the Player's Handbook 3 is surely what some of us have been waiting for some time and it is currently scheduled to be out on the 11th.

  • The adventure in which the Penny Arcade/PvP crew played in the recently concluded D&D podcast will appear in this month's Dungeon on the 13th.

  • It looks like there will be a couple of setting specific articles coming up in this month's Dragon with Expeditionary Dispatches (Eberron) and Gontal (Forgotten Realms). Both appearing on Fridays on the 15th and 22nd respectively.

  • There will be a Monster Manual 3 playtest appearing on the 25th which should be interesting.

It generally looks like a good month but it seems to look better for subscribers overall. Are you excited about any of the upcoming articles in May?

Hi, noticed your blog on your signature in LYN. I'm 33 years and recently moved to Kota Kinabalu. I haven't played any PnP RPGs since my university days but I'm kind of interested to know if there are any gaming groups in town. Thanks!
