Hasbro, the parent company of Dungeons & Dragons developer of Wizards of the Coast, acquired the popular digital toolkit and online storefront D&D Beyond. The deal is announced back in Aprilbut to celebrate the acquisition, D&D Beyond announced that they will be giving away Merger Acquisition Free campaign book.
If you don’t realize it from the title, freebie is a play on words. With Merger Acquisition for the book Dungeons & Dragons, you will receive the material you need to run a fantasy business of your own while running a D&D campaign. The special campaign book was created in partnership with Penny Arcade and inspired by the podcast and web series of the same title. Normally, the hardcover version of the book costs $49.95, but you can buy it for free on the digital storefront. The agreement will be in effect until May 25.
The 224-page book will allow you to start your own Merge Acquisition franchise in the Forgotten Kingdom or another location in the multiverse. It allows you to role-play through a situation in which you work your way up the corporate ladder of a retrieval agency. If a magical corporate partnership doesn’t sound like a good time, you can always start forming an alliance in the magical world. Whether those magic bosses are union friendly or not, may depend on your Dungeon Master.
