Dead By Daylight Is Starting Up Its Own Dungeons & Dragons Campaign

Dead By Daylight

A bit of Dungeons & Dragons is on the way to Dead By Daylight with the next Killer and Survivor shown off for Dead By Daylight

The fun is flowing out even more for Dead By Daylight with the next wave of things coming on June 3rd for the game on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC. The next wave being the terrible campaign of horror that Vecna can bring us at the hands of whatever Behaviour is working on for us. Yes, we are getting some more Dungeons & Dragons in our Dead By Daylight with another Killer and another Survivor plucked from the pages of the tabletop RPG. Not to be confused with the other ways these characters could have been brought over with other IP crossover events in the game. Let us all have a look now.

So, as should be apparent from what has been mentioned so far, Vecna will be the next big Killer in Dead By Daylight. Along with this Killer, we get a new Survivor named Aestri Yazar, a Bard character from the Forgotten Ruins line of things. All with their own powers and abilities that blend the Dead By Daylight gameplay with the Dungeons & Dragons universe too. A new tale for us all to explore as we try not to place it along with the Stranger Things line of events that also went down. That does make these kinds of things a bit rougher when one IP is fully immersed in another that becomes just as huge. It is what it is and we will just have to wait and see how The Fog will make them all feel truly unique out there instead of clones of each other.

Dead By Daylight — Dungeons & Dragons

In dark places such as this, one must keep themselves entertained…

Dead By Daylight: Dungeons & Dragons. June 3rd.

Have you heard the tale of the elusive bards? To dub them mere adventurers would be a disservice to the noble pair of Aestri and her companion Baermar. For whom else would risk life and limb, braving nature’s perils and countless thirsting swords to thwart evil’s forces, on a quest that led them beyond the outskirts of the storied Kingdom of Keoland and deep into the Forgotten Ruins?

As fate would have it, that road led only to one.

He was known by many titles. The Whispered One. Lord of the Rotted Tower. The Master of Secrets. Each one a shield for those unwilling to speak his true name. Aestri and Baermar knew it well, for the Arch-Lich’s chilling reputation preceded him. Yet still, they were unafraid to utter it: Vecna.

As spellcraft goes, few stand as formidable as Vecna. One raise of his withered hand and he’s already closed the distance, quashing any misguided notions of escape. Even if you do manage to barricade yourself, perchance with a ramshackle piece of bound-together wood, his Mage Hand spell will handle that with ease.

Attempting to match his power would no doubt be a fool’s gambit. The Master of the Spider Throne can render even the most powerful magic item to a mere trinket, if only for a few moments. Rumor has it that he can even call upon the Damned to fight for him, a spectral onslaught that cannot be abated.

Keep a watchful eye for magic items scattered in Treasure Chests across the Realm, boots, and gauntlets imbued with arcane power. It’s advised to use them, for they provide a slight edge against several of Vecna’s spells. It’s even whispered that he never strays far from his most treasured possessions, Hand and Eye alike. Should you happen to stumble upon one of those, use it with caution; its power can be unpredictable, to say the least.

One might wonder what chance a bard would stand in the face of such cold, calculating, malevolence. They simply haven’t met the right bard. Aestri and Baemar are as wily as they come, having stood face to face with all manner of threats, from bandits to beholders. At least, if their lyrics are to be believed…

In any case, you’d be wise to stick close. Aestri’s instincts are second to none, and it’s been said she can sense whenever an objective is close to hand. Should you happen to find what you’re looking for, listen closely to the inspiring guidance of her music – it might prove the difference between life and death. Speaking of which, it cannot be overstated how adept she is at staying one step ahead, bamboozling even the most astute Killers with her powerful Mirrored Illusion spell.

Is it fate that Aestri and Vecna would find themselves in this strange realm of Fog and eternal darkness? And what might happen when they come face to face, dancing to the whims of a power beyond comprehension? Perhaps that is a song for another day.

Are you still playing Dead By Daylight and have been looking to get more D&D into your video game? How rough will it be to face off with Vecna and will many be able to remove the Stranger Things aspect from the character to see how the Lich truly should be? Were you hoping to have a mimic in the mix instead and would that not make for a different and fun experience? Explore the comment section below to discuss all of this and everything else that we have to share out there. There is always more for Dead By Daylight, and we will keep on sharing it all as we get it. Please keep on checking back in for all of those updates and the many others we have coming down the line with it.
