It’s one of the most popular games of all time, so it’s not surprising that Minecraft keeps announcing collaborations with all sorts of entities. Their agreements reach even iconic mascots of the sector such as Sonic and even organizations as recognized as the BBC.

Minecraft and Dungeons & Dragons collaboration

But the Mojang team is now focusing on tabletop games through an initiative that involves one of the heavyweights in terms of RPG experiences refers: Wizards of the Coast, known for being the distributors of Dungeons & Dragons.

Coming to the game as DLC, this content will introduce a 10-hour themed campaign that will take us through adventures that include exploring fortresses and fighting iconic monsters like the Beholder. With the possibility of choosing between four character classes (Barbarian, Paladin, Mage and Rogue) and developing their skills, we can participate in combat of all kinds.

And do the famous dice rolls come in? Well yes, although they are not present in battles. In this sense, the expansion forces us to roll a 1D20 (the 20-sided die) in conversations, which can lead to unexpected outcomes depending on the approach we want to carry out with a creature. Which, in a nutshell, takes advantage of the existence of character abilities in D&D (Intimidation, Persuasion, etc.) with Minecraft characters.

Dungeons & Dragons players can also benefit from this agreement between Mojang and Wizards of the Coast, as the collaboration serves as an excuse to launch the book ‘Monstrous Compendium vol. 3: Minecraft Creatures’, which will be available on March 28.

As any DM (Dungeon Master) will know well, the compilation books of beasts and hostile creatures are practically essential to create a campaign, so the addition of Minecraft enemies only expands the alternatives to test the players at a table.
