The Platinum Edition box is filled with all the elements a Dungeon Master needs to create an amazing experience for their players. Whether you're a lifelong gamer or an enthusiastic newbie, the Platinum Box is a must-have for creating the ultimate tabletop experience. But, you ask—what's in the box? Each Platinum Edition is built for an official D&D adventure, and it contains the printed adventure in its entirety. But it also contains so much more.'

The following information is taken from the Beedle and Grimm website:

'Our box contains the module in its entirety, but we’ve broken it down into 8 smaller books to make it easier to find what you need, when you need it:

  1. Chapters 1-3 and magic items
  2. City Denizens, Friendly Faces and Mission Guide
  3. Chapter 4 (Part 1) & Chapter 5
  4. Chapter 4 (Part 2) & Chapter 6
  5. Chapter 4 (Part 3) & Chapter 7
  6. Chapter 4 (Part 4) & Chapter 8
  7. Finale
  8. Volo’s Guide to Waterdeep

Plus, some parts of the module are just easier to use on their own individual pages:

  • All of the most important maps
  • All of the major artwork

Waterdeep: Dragon Heist is a city-based adventure, and that means tons of NPCs for a DM to keep track of. The exclusive Platinum Edition DM screen will be packed with quick reference guides to help you keep track of who’s who, who’s aligned with whom, and where they’re likely to be found. On the player side, we feature some of our favorite artwork from the module.

The Platinum Edition contains 22 Nolzur’s Marvelous Minis: 2 of the larger (50mm base) figures and 20 of the smaller (25mm base) figures. The minis were selected with a preference towards the things you can fight – we want you to be able to use them with the amazing battle maps we’re including (more on those below). We can’t give away much more here, but we have been given permission to reveal one of our favorites.

A bunch of BATTLE MAPS to play out some of the biggest encounters from Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, including this amazing, multi-piece isomorphic map of the city streets designed to be used over and over.

A stack of ENCOUNTER CARDS for the most important interactions in your Waterdeep adventure. They fit right over your custom DM screen, with art for the players on one side and all the key stats and DM role-playing aids on the other.

Letters, journal pages, city newspapers... each box contains multiple handouts crafted to look like they came straight from the hand of a Waterdeep friend… or foe.

We’re giving you two oversize maps meant to become a part of your ongoing campaign. One is a full map of Waterdeep

Our box contains four bonus encounters for you to work into the adventure as you see fit. All of them can fit seamlessly into the campaign, so you can insert when you need an extra chance to say, "roll initiative".

The Platinum Edition comes with 5 fully-realized characters custom-made for Waterdeep – with backgrounds that will help to connect them to the campaign to come. Use them to supplement an existing party, replace a tragically deceased character, or to just create a new party from scratch!

D&D licensee Han Cholo has created 6 exclusive wearable faction insignias to match the factions of Waterdeep. When your players choose their ally (or allies), let them wear their new allegiance with pride!

When you saw the word “Heist” in the title, you knew gold was going to be involved, right? Han Cholo is making a full-sized recreation of the Waterdeep version of the gold piece – the Dragon – for you to share with your players.'
