Stream of Annihilation – D&D’s New Story Unveiled

Over the next 2 days from 10am-10pm PT “a bunch of D&D streamers and luminaries” will be hanging out and rolling dice in a two-day even called Stream of Annihilation. The event appears to be both a celebration of all the awesome D&D twitch streamers out there and an even to announce D&D’s new storyline for Fall 2017. D&D has done a good job recognizing that new and old fans want to watch more and more D&D live play on Twitch.

ADDED: The new storyline will be called Tomb of Annihilation set in Forgotten Realms’ Chult and it comes out in September.

Dungeons & Dragons loves the amazing video streams produced by our fans. This community-generated live-play highlights what’s fantastic about D&D—sitting down together with your friends to tell a grand story!

Tune into D&D’s twitch channel to watch the event hosted by Anna Prosser Robinson and Kelly Link. You should find most of your favorite groups of D&D streamers with Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team, The HighRollers, Maze Arcana, Misscliks, Dice, Camera Action! and others participating in the event. The following special guests include including Matt Mercer, Joe Manganiello, Liam O’Brien, Marisha Ray, Matt Colville, Dylan Sprouse, Matthew Lillard, Abraham Rubin Hercules Benrubi, and TrumpSC!

Here is a preview of the event from Dungeon Life

So tune in a 10am PT on Friday June 2nd, 2017 to watch the event launch and find out what the new D&D campaign this fall will be. After that the schedule staggers between live play games and news, announcements, and interviews.

Ongoing Live Play

“Each group of streamers will play or share a sample of what to expect from the campaigns they’ll be running over the summer that preview the new D&D story.”

So this event won’t be the end and we’ll be seeing the campaigns started by the groups over the next two days played over the summer (like last summer’s game run by Matt Mercer).

    That’s Mezro, right?

    Nice to see them moving away from the Sword Coast for the fall storyline. And dinosaurs!

    This was the storyline that Adventure Time’s Penn Ward consulting on.

      To my mind, “pulp feel” and “meat grinder mode” don’t really mesh. Not that I don’t like the overall concept here, mind you.

      And Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is out in November! Looks like it will be the best of the recent blitz of Unearthed Arcana, with another layer of polish. (The Mystic and Artificer probably won’t be out until 2018, though.)

    • Right, they’re further crowdsourcing the mystic and artificer through the DM’s Guild, as announced here: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/unearthed-arcana/unearthed-arcana-update.
