D&D Announces Acquisitions Incorporated, a Book Providing the Flavor of Acq Inc within the Forgotten Realms
Posted By Flames On April 2, 2019 @ 8:36 am In Features | No Comments
Dungeons & Dragons is publishing a book made in partnership with Penny Arcade that provides a way to jump into the comedic fantasy superhero D&D live-play you’ve seen on the stages of PAX for a decade. Fans will be able to live out their fantasy of climbing the corporate ladder of the most notorious retrieval agency in the Forgotten Realms—Acquisitions Incorporated . Join CEO Omin Dran, Jim Darkmagic, Môrgæn, and the chandelier-riding Viari around the table as a lowly intern or a freshly-minted franchisee with the new Acquisitions Incorporated sourcebook coming from Dungeons & Dragons on June 18!
“To tons of people around the world, the flavor of D&D played by the Acquisitions Incorporated crew was their first taste of just how much fun a Dungeons & Dragons game could be,” said Nathan Stewart, Senior Director of Dungeons & Dragons at Wizards of the Coast. “We wanted to start experimenting with presenting different playstyles to fans entering the D&D community, and it made sense to start with a group who has spent ten years at a table with Chris Perkins entertaining hordes of fans.”
“I’ve played Dungeons & Dragons my entire life, so collaborating with the team on this project has been surreal,” said Penny Arcade’s Jerry Holkins. “Acquisitions Incorporated is the game my friends and I have been playing for ten years, and I’m so honored to invite players to our table.”
The 224-page book gives Dungeon Masters and players tons of options to make their game feel like an Acquisitions Incorporated campaign. Start up an Acq Inc franchise in Waterdeep or Elturel or anywhere in the multiverse, recruit a scion of the Beestingers to complete a messy task only a cunning halfling could accomplish, or stumble upon Jim Darkmagic’s clone burning with… uh, viridescent flame. There’s an adventure module included, and when they run it, Dungeon Masters are encouraged to act like Jeremy Crawford calling for a deception check from WWE Superstar Xavier Woods, while simultaneously channeling Chris Perkins to let dashing characters like Viari, played by fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss, get away with ANYTHING that sounds cool.
This past weekend at PAX East, Penny Arcade’s Jerry Holkins and Elyssa Grant were on a panel moderated by D&D Game Designer Kate Welch (Rosie Beestinger herself) to talk about the type of madcap fun D&D fans will get up to when the book drops June 18. Check out video from that panel here at Twitch.tv/videos/402594458 .
Also, don’t forget to watch the Acq Inc game from PAX East 2019 with Dungeon Master Jeremy Crawford guiding Omin Dran (Jerry Holkins), Jim Darkmagic (Mike Krahulik), Viari (Patrick Rothfuss), Môrgæn (Morgan Webb), and Bobby Zimeruski (WWE Superstar Xavier Woods) on another zany adventure in the world of Ravnica. Catch up on their most recent escapades at Twitch.tv/videos/403318753 !
Acquisitions Incorporated, the D&D sourcebook, is available now for pre-order at Amazon.com  or your local game store.
