The comedic fantasy campaign Acquisitions Incorporated has inspired a new sourcebook for Dungeons & Dragons, produced by Wizards of the Coast in partnership with Penny Arcade.  The book will release on June 18.

Acquisitions Incorporated game sessions have been run as on-stage live-play events at PAX and in streaming video online, giving viewers an opportunity to observe one of the many ways that Dungeons & Dragons can be played during an on-going ten-year old campaign.  Acquisitions Incorporated games feature a more comedic take on fantasy roleplaying, in which player characters are employees of an “acquisition” corporation in the Forgotten Realms setting.

D&D:  Acquisitions Incorporated is a 224-page hardcover sourcebook that provides players and game masters the tools they need to “open a franchise” of the Acquisitions Incorporated company, including background about the organization, new game rules, spells, and character options designed to fit the theme of the campaign, and a campaign designed to take characters from level 1 to level 6.

Dungeons & Dragons continues to be at the forefront of strong growth in its category as role playing sees broader acceptance in mainstream pop culture (on our PRO site, see “PRO:  ‘D&D is Normalized’” and “Top 5 Roleplaying Games--Fall 2018”).
