      @sebastianwillows why sub class a class with subclasses. I'm currently an oder of the lycan blood hunter fir example l. Its more likely to be a class specific to Exandria and not a phb class other wise its offical

        Does Ravnica not count as a world they brought in?

          I wonder if Matt would ever write a novel in his world? Might not be his “type” of writing but he has written a world that has a lot of lore, maps and art. There are comics and now a TV show in the works. I just think that’d be super cool for him to do a novel as well! I know novels take a long time and he has so much on his plate already. It could even be a bunch of short stories that he puts together, I don’t know. I’d buy it :D

              I don´t follow CR (I do follow Matts other DnD interests), yet I am so pumped for this book !!
              I am so happy for Matt ! Same with Joe, it feels like their dreams coming true.

                  Honestly Matt is just a creative and precious treasure and must be protected at all costs, im so thrilled for him to have a dream come true after the wonderful gifts hes given us fans and the endless love, encouragement and positivity he has poured into the community. Of course the cast and crew deserve so much love as well but Matt is the priceless gem at the centre. <3

                          I have just started getting into DnD, though I have been a fan of R A Salvatore for years.

                          So...ummm...what exactly is Wildemount?

                              Matt is such a brilliant person. I’m so happy gaming has gotten to this point and he has an opportunity to share.

                                        I'll admit I haven't watched CR (though I know several people who do), but this might get me into it. I'm glad it has a pantheon! And elves, of course. Looks like there are some novels, too!

                                                    @soinhu foitu if you mean an adventure module like Storm King's Thunder or Tyranny of Dragons by "playable book", then no. It's a setting guide with information to build your own adventures around

                                                                I mean, strictly speaking, they kinda pulled the MtG multiverse in very recently, but I don't know if the Guildmaster's Guide was meant to cement it as a part of the D&D official multiverse.
                                                                In any case, I'm glad to see Matt being given such an awesome opportunity, and it's amazing of him to include the fan artists in the project like that. I'm not a very big fan of the show (it's fine, I just don't love it) and am not terribly excited for the book. I'll probably allow any player that asks me (the DM) to use the new content, but I'm not gonna get the book. Would have probably been more interested if I'd been told that the Blood Hunter and Matt's other previous homebrew were going to be pulled in to become official stuff. Oh well.

                                                                                I’m about to start a campaign using the Tal’Dorei guide and if I can have this too it will be so useful especially since one of my players is going to be from Wildemount.

Like you can tell he really cares about this and it's fun to see and I'm excited to get together with some of my friends and adventure in Wildemount with this guide now!
