Fizbans Treasury of Dragons – everything you need to know about the next Dungeons & Dragons book

Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons is set to give these D&D mainstays their due; it promises fresh rules and a dive into the lore of tabletop’s most iconic monster. The book also promises to explain why these monsters are so crucial to Dungeons & Dragons at large. Which makes sense, really. They form half of the game’s name, after all.

This sourcebook also brings the classic Dragonlance setting back to D&D – well, sort of. Although Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons doesn’t explore Dragonlance itself, its point-of-view character hails from that world. 

So, is Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons worth getting? We’ve rounded up everything you need to know on the module here, including when it launches, what’s in it, how it compares to previous Dungeons and Dragons books, and where to find the best deal.

Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons – what to expect

The book is full of deep cuts like that; as an example, it reintroduces gem dragons to the game. These creatures haven’t been seen since the Third Edition of Dungeons & Dragons, so that’s a big deal for fans who’ve stuck with D&D for years.

Additionally, Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons wades into D&D lore by shedding light on the game’s mythical ‘First World’ – the supposed birthplace of D&D’s multiverse. Because legendary dragons Bahamut and Tiamat are involved, these events should demonstrate why these creatures are deserving of a place in the TRPG’s title.

Does Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons include Dragonlance?

As suggested by the book’s name, we’ll be guided through all that by Fizban the Fabulous – a “doddering archmage” from the Dragonlance setting. This classic universe began in the 1980s and has countless sourcebooks under its belt to go with over 100 novels, so we’re hyped to see it referenced here… even subtly. However, don’t get too excited. Fizban’s Treasury won’t explore the world of Dragonlance itself. This has been confirmed by D&D publisher Wizards of the Coast.

That doesn’t mean we won’t get a chance in the future, though. During a press briefing earlier this year, the D&D team pointed out that it’s going to revisit classic worlds in 2022. While those projects haven’t been announced yet, it’s possible that Dragonlance will make the cut. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons – alternative cover

As with most Dungeons & Dragons releases (it was certainly the case for The Wild Beyond the Witchlight and will be for Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos), Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons will launch with a second cover. This is a soft-touch design that’s a little more abstract, and it puts massive red and gold dragons front and center.

Just don’t expect to get your hands on it easily. This Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons alternate cover is an in-store exclusive, so you’ll need to brave the outdoor world if you want it on your shelf. In theory, anyway – we have seen it knocking about online, so you’ll have to try your luck if there isn’t a participating brick-and-mortar shop near you. 

Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons – accessories

Most D&D launches hit shelves alongside themed dice and the like (much like you’d expect for one of the best tabletop RPGs), but Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons is an exception to the rule. There are no accessories to go with the book, so you won’t find any cool extras come release day at the end of October.

Luckily, there are plenty of other Dungeons & Dragons accessories to enhance your games. There are more than a few awesome WizKids miniatures to represent these creatures in your games, and there are more themed dice (opens in new tab) out there – many of which include dragons – than we can count.
