I’m a big fan of Adventure Time and even ran an Adventure Time homebrew campaign for D&D 4th Edition last year. Earlier this week on Twitter, Chris Perkins revealed that Wizard of the Coast is collaborating with Pendleton Ward (creator of ADVENTURE TIME) on a future D&D story. I’m a big fan of anything Pendleton Ward creates, so I’m looking forward to seeing what materializes.
The speculation can go anywhere, but here are three ways I can see this playing out…
- An Adventure Time themed game or storyline is being created to bring new people to the 5th edition rules. Much like the Munchkin Adventure Time. This is a great fit for both properties – since so much of Adventure Time is clearly inspired by Pendleton Ward’s time playing D&D waaaay back in middle school.
- Pendleton Ward only wants to work on Adventure Time 99% of the time and has an original, new project up his sleeve like Bravest Warriors that he is working on with Wizards of the Coast to bring to life.
- Pendleton Ward has been asked to consult on an upcoming storyline (such as the Wonderland storyline that is potentially coming out later this year). His whimsical take on D&D found in many episodes of Adventure Time will be a great addition to the team updating Gary Gygax’s Dungeonland or creating another storyline.

Pendleton Ward, creator of ADVENTURE TIME, is in town this week, collaborating with us on a future D&D story. That’s all I’m allowed to say!
