Can You Change Fate?

The greed of mortals has awakened a powerful entity long thought destroyed. For eons, this mighty champion of the gods has been imprisoned in the darkest depths of Exandria. His name has been forgotten, as have his heroic deeds. Languishing in despair, he calls out for new heroes to save him.

Inspired by the campaigns of the hit series Critical Role, this adventure begins in the Wastes of Xhorhas and leads to the glimmering oasis-city of Ank’Harel on the continent of Marquet, and from there into a sunken realm of gloom, corruption, and sorrow known as the Netherdeep. Above it all, the red moon of Ruidus watches, twisting the fates of those who have the power to shape the course of history.

Call of the Netherdeep is co-led by our very own Dungeon Master Matthew Mercer and D&D Principal Story Architect Chris Perkins, and features additional contributions from one of Exandria’s OG contributors James Haeck (Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount, Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting & Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting Reborn). The tome is packed with gorgeous artwork including the cover art featured above by Minttu Hynninen, as well as a poster map of Ank’harel by Deven Rue. You can check out a few of the gorgeous pieces from Call of the Netherdeep at the bottom of this article.

Call of the Netherdeep contains seven chapters of thrilling adventure spanning 224 pages for characters levels 3-12, as well as new creatures, magic items, and NPCs. While Call of the Netherdeep introduces previously unexplored regions of Exandria, it also features story hooks and lore that can be plucked from our world and brought into whatever world your party adventures in.

We can’t wait for the stories you’ll tell in Exandria and beyond using Call of the Netherdeep. Adventure awaits on March 15, 2022. Be sure to pre-order your copy right now, available via D&D.
