Neverwinter’s new video teases content coming with new Yawning Portal video

We can’t remember the last time Neverwinter dropped a big ol’ video without a formal announcement, but hey, we’re not mad about this one. PWE offered a new video this morning, along with this cryptic message.

“Dear Adventurer, The visions… have you seen them? Are your deepest desires calling to you? Do you wish for nigh-unlimited power? Perhaps, the incredible wealth of dragon hoards? Or maybe, it’s true love? Yearning is a curious thing… Give yourself over to fixation; revel in the challenge or descend into madness.”

Neverwinter fans are buzzing over whether the tease heralds a new campaign or even a new dungeon – the latter might make more sense, given the title of the video, yeah? What do you think we’re looking at here?

This is potentially very, very exciting news for D&D PnP fans who also play Neverwinter. I would say that a well-realised Undermountain would be as news-worthy as LoTRO’s Moria. It really goes back to the days of ‘Mega dungeons’, and could offer up almost unlimited possibilities for the devs to do Very Good Things!

it also makes sense given the last campaign book to come out for D&D was tyhe combo platter of Dragon Heist and Dungeon of the Mad Mage

Dragon Heist starts at the Yawning Portal with you even seeing adventurers head down into Undermountain, as sort of a book end because if you go on to DoTMM with your campaign after Dragon heist, you too will be going in.

Agreed but cryptic doesnt like releasing big content, so while I hope it too, I doubt it

If its the actual lore Yawning Portal, thats an adventurer hangout and bar in Waterdeep that contains the entrance to the Undermountain, the so called “Dungeon of the Mad Mage”

The Yawning Portal refers to the big-ass well in the center of the bar that has a bucket and pulley system that adventurers can pay to use to enter Undermountain, with there being betting pools on whether the adventurers will come back out alive or not.

Also, I’m totally up for Undermountain if they can pull off keeping up how wondrous and crazy the place is.

Its a dungeion so vast and magical that entire civilizations live down there
