Exciting! They've been teasing this on Twitter for a while now and I've been sceptical, but that back cover makes it sound quite promising.

Really looking forward to this! It sounds like the most realistic way of getting it will be via the DMs' guild, right?

Is this going to be like Xanathars Guide to everything where the adventure is actually set in Nerath on Krynn, or will it be set in Myth Drannor

Perhaps you could click on the link and read the back cover blurb for yourself?

That was what my jaded little heart thought at first, then I did what our lovable Furry One said. Looks interesting.

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

If only we could get an Undermountain Adventure. The Curse of Halaster's Hall's!

I'm both excited and a little terrified by this product. Alright, more then just "a little"; If anyone gets their hands on a copy at gencon, I would love to discuss any lore updates regarding the Elves.

I really hope Fflar and Ilsevele Miritar are still running things.

The latest I know is that they went to Semberholme with the other elven refugees. Evereska has also seen an influx of elven survivors from Myth Drannor.

Awww, it seems like the actually hardback BOOK product is a GenCon 2017 exclusive. I would have liked to have the hardback book if they sold it. But I'm sure it will eventually arrive on DM's Guild as a bunch of digital electrons at a low price.

Intrigued. Good to see it will be available as a PDF, but hopefully that won't mean its still full price. I'm still a fan of buying the actual books.

Are these kind of texts fun to read? I love learning about history and lore even if it isn't in novel format. I unfortunately don't have anyone to play with where I live, but would also love to be caught up on lore and such when I am able to find some folks to play with. Wondering if I should look into purchasing some books like these.

I will be sourcebooks (like campaign guides) for lore purposes, as I don't really play, either. I am interested in what lore this book has to offer, but if it is mostly adventure stuff, it probably won't be of much use to me.

ditto.. Lore heavy, adventure itself light. I can adapt the hundreds of dungeon magazine modules I have. I'm more interested to see what they're vision of the area is than nitpicking about room 31a that's filled with giant rats and hidden in their excrement is a sword +1 and 15 copper pieces.

^This. I would really like updates on what is going on with MD, and the elven refugees who fled from there. We know they have gone to other elven settlements, but...now what?

I know, but it would give us an idea, and a better understanding of the "state" of MD, and the elves.

It wasn't even a hardback. There were a couple of copies present at the Candlekeep seminar, and it was obviously a soft cover.
