Plane Shift: Innistrad Breakdown

There’s no new Unearthed Arcana yet this month, and maybe we’re not getting one – but we have something at least as good, and that’s James Wyatt’s new adaptation of a Magic: the Gathering plane to D&D 5e. This was announced, um, Monday I think, and released yesterday. If you’re not familiar with Innistrad, it’s a plane of Gothic horror, and it got priority over other planes because Curse of Strahd is the most recent release from the D&D side of WotC. I take the view that this is a particular blessing because we can’t expect to see another official release for the Domain of Dread anytime soon.

Today, Magic: The Gathering and Dungeon & Dragons fans can rejoice again with a 40 page PDF. The document, titled Plane Shift: Innistrad, that provides world background, races and monsters for Magic’s plane of Innistrad. I wasn’t too excited about this as it seemed similar to Ravenloft, but the Inquisitor background and variety of monsters are excellent for any game…. and there is lots for fans of the setting too. In addition, there are notes on fitting D&D’s latest adventure setting of Barovia (Curse of “Innistrahd”) into this setting.
