Word of Wizards - 23/5/09

It has been pretty exciting over at Wizards with the release of Monster Manual 2. This week, they have given us every opportunity to use the book with Vicious Venues and an encounter to Use This Book Tonight. If there weren't enough monsters already, Wizards have also created stats for 3 more from the latest Forgotten Realms novel, The Restless Shore.

But the major news for this week is that Wizards have officially announced that they would increasing the subscription rates for D&D Insider on July to make up for new exclusive content from the Player's Handbook 3.

Now that the Monster Manual 2 is out of the way, we also started seeing the excerpts coming from the Eberron Player's Guide and things are just starting to get better.

So here's the rundown of what has been at happening at Wizards for this week, in case you missed any of them.

Monday (18/5/09)
Monster Manual 2 Art Gallery
Eberron Player's Guide Excerpts: Introduction
Nightmare Creatures of The Restless Shore

Wednesday (20/5/09)
Vicious Venues - The Deep Shaft
D&D Insider Announcement
Success Along the Adventure Path 5: Den of the Destroyer
D&D Miniatures Gallery: Dangerous Delves

Friday (22/5/09)
D&D Alumni: Demogorgon

Spotlight Interview: Adam Phillips
Use This Book Tonight: Monster Manual 2
Eberron Player's Guide Excerpts: Alchemy

Don't forget that today is also World Wide Dungeons & Dragons Game Day to celebrate the launch of the Monster Manual 2, so find your nearest participating game store here and have some fun. If you are England, you might not want to forget who is coming to town.

Next week starts off with Memorial Day so there would presumably be no updates. After that it will be closing week for May with the usual Dungeon and Dragon compilation but we still get more excerpts and maybe even a podcast.

It's also going to be another great week for subscribers since they are going to be playtesting the hybrid classes again, hopefully with some changes and improvements.

So here's a Happy Game and Memorial Day to my readers.
