D&D Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos is a Dungeons & Dragons campaign adventurebook created for the Magic: The Gathering setting of Strixhaven. The physical book was released by Wizards of the Coast on December 7, 2021.
The designers have developed rules to simulate college life including taking tests and working on campus.
The book also contains rules for building up relationships with other students, which affects the narrative. This also has mechanical impacts on the game. There are personality profiles for 18 NPCs spread across the five colleges, and players can interact with them during relationship encounters such as an improv festival, house party, or singing competition. The decisions that players make during these encounters can earn them new allies, or create new rivals who will try to interfere with their plans.
Unlike previous Magic crossovers that were set in different worlds, Strixhaven is designed to be dropped into any D&D campaign. The book features an adventure that can be played from levels 1-10 or broken up into four standalone games, each representing a year spent at the college. Each of those can be completed in two or three sessions.
A bestiary contains 40 new creatures, plus NPCs including professors and the dragons that founded each college. Players will also find rules for Owlin, a new avian race that was previously tested in Unearthed Arcana, plus feats, spells, and items such as magical textbooks to further immerse them in the setting.
