I still don't know if SX are all connected into 1 story-arc (maybe this has been answered already and I forgot) and if they will be part of a multi-story arc. Or if they will be stand alone dungeons or a stand alone year.


Oops I edited my post instead of adding a reply.


Update from the Workshop

We have been doing a great deal of really cool stuff in the workshop this week -- on all of the three new adventures for 2020.

S1 - The Underthing: We are almost 95% done with this module! This week we have been setting up each room in the workshop so that we can tweak all the lighting and set dressing. We are also carefully numbering all the set pieces, taking photographs, and shooting videos so the Install/Dismantle folks can have visual aids during set-up and tear down. Also, work is well underway on the crafting of the monsters you will encounter beneath a the strange mage university. Troy has been carving form, gluing stuff together with Great Stuff, and making some armatures to hold it all.

S2 - Darkhold Keep: I am happy to report that I have finished the writing of this adventure! I really enjoyed putting together our first "haunted' themed module. I think it will be a fan-favorite, and several fun easter eggs have been placed inside for fans of classic haunted houses and films. This adventure will have some have a few scares...so beware the moors when the moon rising high.

S3 - Tomb of Terrors: I have started the outline of this homage to the deadliest adventure in D&D history! I hope you are ready for some deadly corridors, fiendish traps, a bit of crawling if you wish, and a semi-lich that craves your soul. The Nightmare version of this module is going to be equal to the deadliness level of the original adventure.

Jeff previously stated they are stand-alone adventures.
But who knows what will happen between now and when the modules debut. ;)
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously.

Excellent thank you again for your helpful insight. Now if I just can remember between now and Origins so I do ask again.

This is also why this year's token designs at C/UC/R were sort of "back to basics" - with no setting or environmental bonuses like +3 while in the Bliss.

I'm more enthused about this year's Dungeons than any of the other recent years, the stand-alone themes sound awesome, especially the Haunted House and Tomb of Terrors. :)

Even if all three end up being stand alone, I wonder if any of the treasure box items will go into a multi-year transmute. I’m guessing probably not?

I suspect they still will be part of the next multi-year monster token transmute. It's not guaranteed though, there was a year skipped between Medallion of Greyhawk and Dragon Tooth Amulet, and a partial year skipped between Draco Lich Claw and Icecrag Hero's Earcuff.

Medallion of Greyhawk was 2006-2007 monster tokens.
2008 monster tokens were skipped.
Dragon Tooth Amulet was 2009 - 2010 monster tokens
Draco-Lich Claw Charm was 2011 monster tokens plus just two 2012 monster tokens
Icecrag Hero's Earcuff was 2013-2015 monster tokens
Bead of the Lucky Traveler was 2016-2019 monster tokens.

It is usually not a bad idea to hold on to a few sets of stuff like that. Still lots of time for plans to change one way or the other.

Monsters n the underthing bugs me a bit after reading the book. Maybe a water creature but the book had no monsters mentioned directly (you could imply a water creature from early in the book.)
