Are WotC planning a Drow ARG?

Posted: May 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

I’m a day late on this news, but May’s “In The Works” column at WotC’s website has this little nugget in the intro:

Web of the Spider Queen begins May 16th. Soon after, you’ll find a related hunt to intercept the drow’s wartime intelligence and learn more of their plans—so keep a watch for it on the Rise of the Underdark hub!

To me, that sounds like WotC are planning to run an Alternate Reality Game (ala Halo’s I Love Bee’s) across their website and centred around the hub. The potential outcome here is great, use IP Tracking to capture each countries success and tailor the follow-up Encounters season accordingly… More realistically, it might give you an advantage on knowing the number of opponents you will face in an upcoming fight, allowing you to plan healing/daily power use.

    Sounds fun, hope it somes off and not just limits itself to the US.
    When I first read the article I thought it was a cryptic reference to the upcoming Lair Assault adventure “Spider Killer” but I’m hoping your take on it is nearer the mark 🙂
