Congratulations to Wizards of the Coast and the Dungeons & Dragons design team. Xanathar’s Guide To Everything won the 2018 Origins Award for Best Role-Playing Game Supplement and Fan Favorite.

Xanathar’s Guide To Everything

As a D&D fan, the award comes as no surprise. Xanathar’s is an amazing book and truly needs to be part of every Dungeon Master and player’s library. The book is the first major expansion of D&D 5e, and it offers among other things:

  • 25 new character subclasses
  • New spells
  • Tons of expansion material and rules options

Xanathar’s Guide To Everything was released last November, 2017 and was published with two different covers (pictured below). Much of the book’s material originally appeared in a series of online articles published by Wizards called “Unearthed Arcana”.
