According to a press release I just received, “anticipation for Xanathar’s Guide has been extremely high leading up the wide release today – it has been climbing up the bestselling list on Amazon, reaching as high as #7 and currently sitting at #9 rank in all books, as well as #4 in Teens and #1 for Games.”
A quick look at Xanathar’s Guide to Everything:
The beholder called Xanathar—Waterdeep’s most infamous crime lord—is known to hoard information on friend and foe alike. The tyrant catalogs lore about adventurers, ponders methods to thwart them and offers its own bizarre observations about whatever its eyestalks happen to see.
Xanathar provides readers with:
- More than twenty-five new subclasses for the character classes in the Player’s Handbook, including the Cavalier (for the fighter), the Circle of Dreams (for the druid), the Horizon Walker (for the ranger), and the Inquisitive (for the rogue).
- Dozens of new spells, a collection of racial feats, and a system to give each character a customized backstory.
- A variety of tools that provide Dungeon Masters with fresh ways to use traps, magic items, downtime activities, and other material—all designed to enhance a campaign and push it in new directions.
Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is available with a standard cover, which features an illustration of Xanathar and its precious goldfish by Jason Rainville, as well as a limited edition alternative-art cover illustrated by Hydro74 available in game stores only.
