The largest European D&D experience to date will celebrate the EU community and introduce newcomers to the roleplaying game with celebrities playing live on stage.
Dungeons & Dragons, in partnership with Europe’s largest comics festival, Lucca Comics & Games, is proud to announce Devil Deals—an infernal D&D challenge that will allow fans to interact with the story and characters behind Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus. Devil Deals is part of a full program of D&D activities at Lucca Comics & Games including livestreamed celebrity games and panels with talent from the U.S. and Europe, a huge D&D Epic for fans to roll dice together, and tons of merchandise available between October 30-November 3 in Lucca, Italy.
“Dungeons & Dragons is a global phenomenon and we’re super excited to bring the full storytelling experience of our game to fans at Lucca Comics & Games for the first time,” said Nathan Stewart, Vice President leading the D&D Franchise at Wizards of the Coast. “We want fans from all over the world to jump into D&D, and interacting with the community at Lucca is a big step in making that happen!”
Taking place November 1-3, Devil Deals is a massive interactive quest involving thousands of participants racing around the medieval city of Lucca, finding clues and confronting a devil in a real dungeon below the city. The reward for completing such an epic quest can include exclusive D&D merchandise from Wizards of the Coast and partners like WizKids, as well as the chance to meet and greet with D&D luminaires. A limited number of adventuring parties can complete the quest each day, so jump into the fray as soon as you can! Fans can register in advance here (more details, below).
On stage at Lucca, D&D luminaries Joe Manganiello, Mark Hulmes, and Kim Richards will be playing Dungeons & Dragons live in front of Italian fans for the first time. D&D fans all over the world can tune in to watch the livestream of these games on twitch.tv/dnd and participate in driving donations to the D&D Extra Life charity effort to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. More information can be found at D&D Extra Life.
From Baldur’s Gate to Avernus, the devils are always ready to make a deal to try and corrupt mortals bit by bit. If you're brave enough to sign your name to a devil's contract, the rarest treasures of treasures are up for grabs. But at what cost? Brave the diabolical and unpredictable challenges and you may be rewarded handsomely, maybe even coming face to face with an archdevil yourself.
Are you ready to live up to your end of the bargain?
