Tasha's Cauldron of Everything!

Wizards of the Coast just announced their next Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition supplement, and let's just say, it has given me the giggles.

Any Wizard or Bard worth their spell slots has dipped their toes into the magic spell Tasha's Hideous Laughter. This fantastic spell leaves the victim bent over in a historical fit of laughter an incapacitating them. The spell named after the fiendish witch queen is the new focus of the next big sourcebook for Dungeons and Dragons.

The announcement of TASHA'S CAULDRON OF EVERYTHING comes from twitter and revealed the release date of November 17, 2020! Much like its predecessor Xanathar's Guide to Everything, it will be jam-packed with awesome:

  • EXPANDED SUBCLASSES. Try out subclass options for every Dungeons & Dragons class, including the artificer, which appears in the book.

  • MORE CHARACTER OPTIONS. Delve into a collection of new class features and new feats, and customize your character’s origin using straightforward rules for modifying a character’s racial traits.

  • INTRODUCING GROUP PATRONS. Whether you're part of the same criminal syndicate or working for an ancient dragon, each group patron option comes with its own perks and types of assignments.

  • SPELLS, ARTIFACTS & MAGIC TATTOOS. Discover more spells, as well as magic tattoos, artifacts, and other magic items for your campaign.

  • EXPANDED RULES OPTIONS. Try out rules for sidekicks, supernatural environments, natural hazards, and parleying with monsters, and gain guidance on running a session zero.

  • A PLETHORA OF PUZZLES. Ready to be dropped into any D&D adventure, puzzles of varied difficulty await your adventurers, complete with traps and guidance on using the puzzles in a campaign.

Full of expanded content for players and Dungeon Masters alike, this book is a great addition to the Player's Handbook and the Dungeon Master’s Guide. Baked in you'll find more rule options for all the character classes in the Player's Handbook, including more subclass options. Thrown in for good measure is the artificer class, a master of magical invention. And this witch's brew wouldn't be complete without a dash of added artifacts, spellbook options, spells for both player characters and monsters, magical tattoos, group patrons, and other tasty goodies.
