The Secret of Forsaken Peak Breakdown

Heya folks! Been working hard on The Secret of Forsaken Peak today, so sorry I’ve been quiet. Anyways, JD and I just outlined the requirements for this big ol’ book we’re doing.

The format is based loosely on the new Dungeon of the Mad Mage book (not the story, mind you, just seeing how big poppa WotC organizes their stuff). Here is the rough breakdown of what to expect:

Appendix B: Player Options
Class Options 24
Appendix C: Magic Items/Spells 20
Totals 7 21 78 550 150 113k 241

I expect about a 50% adjustment on the final word count and page count, too, so we’re probably looking at close to 200,000 words and over 300 pages, so roughly the same size as a normal Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition book.

Of course, all of this will change and grow as more and more material comes out and we start pushing for the Gleam campaign.

Let me know what you think down in the comments.

  1. Will this be available as a physical copy. I want this as a hardcover book that I can place next to my 5e books
