Free Material

 

Over the past few weeks, we have been monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and closely following the situation and adjusting as recommended by local governments. That means Wizards of the Coast is working from home as we continue to craft new D&D stories and supplements for our fans. Some D&D streaming programming will be disrupted during this time, including introductions of new series, but we’re working hard on that front to provide as much entertainment as possible.

We believe the social connection playing games, including D&D, can continue to be helpful for those of us who feel isolated or alone in our homes in order to stay safe from transmission. As social distancing impacts our ability to get together in person, we wanted to offer resources and advice for more remote play.


As an added resource for gamers, the D&D team is pleased to offer the following material as free adventures and resources for use in your games—whether you’re playing in a kitchen table campaign, you're an active participant in the D&D Adventurers League, or are simply interested in learning more about Dungeons & Dragons and trying it out for yourself.

In addition, with schools closed around the world, many parents and caregivers are at home with their kids, including many in the D&D community. If you are in need of fun & educational material to share and/or play with your kids, you can check back here for D&D materials to help during this time. And if you (or someone you know) is a younger gamer, we’re also releasing resources to make it even easier to get into D&D.


Content will be added daily, Monday-Friday. Check back each day for the latest free, downloadable content. Please note that certain adventures are being made free for a limited time, so be sure to grab them now while you can

  • DDAL05-11 Forgotten Traditions: An adventure for levels 5-10—available now for free for a limited time (through June 1).

    The origin of runes has long been lost to the majority of sages and wizards, save those with giant blood. However, with the shattering of the Ordning, the magic of runes has once again emerged into the Realms. Adventurers must delve into a ruined complex beneath the Spine of the World, suspected by SEER to be the birthplace of that arcane tradition. By Travis Woodall.

    A force of darkness and corruption seeps into the jungles of Chult, defiling the once eternal spirits that gave life to the land. Left unchecked, this vile power will extend beyond the jungle lands to pervade the entirety of the Realms. Seeking to restore the Lost City of Mezro and its immortal protectors, a band of adventurers is bound by destiny to either restore the balance, or be consumed by their own dark fates.

    Deep in the Marsh of Chelimber lie the ruins of a great wizard’s tower.

    East of Beregost, nestled in the outskirts of the Wood of Sharp Teeth, Durlag’s Tower has intrigued and yet stymied adventurers for decades. Stuffed full of mechanical traps and arcane wards, and rumored to be inhabited by fiends, very few have managed to extract any REAL treasure from the former home of Durlag Trollkiller.

    However, a powerful item in the ancient fight against the giants is said to be housed there, and the cloud giant Baron Rajiram has committed significant resources toward recovering it. After a pleasant tea in her garden, SEER calls upon you to beat him there and put a stop to his efforts! By Alan Patrick.

HSING comes forth to communicate that she wants you to see if you can find some way to either insure Gralm remains neutral, or to encourage the creature to challenge Bad Fruul to single combat in the hopes that he might wrest control of the hill giant’s forces and turn them back from Parnast. By Rydia Q. Vielehr.
