LEGO has debuted its first Dungeons & Dragons set.

The fan-designed LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons: Red Dragon’s Tale set is a 3,745-piece build, featuring a tavern with a removable roof. The set also features a dungeon, a tower and six LEGO minifigures – Orc Rogue, Gnome Fighter, Elf Wizard and Dwarf Cleric.

The set also includes brick-built monsters including a beholder, an owlbear and a displacer beast, as well as the giant Cinderhowl red dragon that builders can wrap around the tower.

The set was inspired by a LEGO Ideas brief co-developed by the Wizards of the Coast team. Over 600 LEGO fans submitted D&D-inspired designs, with the winning concept coming from Lucas Bolt in Amsterdam. Lucas then worked closely with LEGO Design team, to develop the setting represented in the final set. In addition, the Wizards of the Coast team developed a bespoke adventure for the set.

“The Dungeons & Dragons theme combined with my love of history, fantasy and making games, inspired me to create a playable layout with different challenges and routes to explore,” said Lucas.

“I had so much fun designing this piece, and it is a real privilege seeing my design developed into a detailed LEGO set to celebrate 50 years of the iconic game.”

LEGO Design Manager, Jordan Scott, added: “Lucas’ design perfectly captured the storytelling excitement of any Dungeons & Dragons game. Working with the Wizards of the Coast team, we were able to build on his design to co create a truly authentic Dungeons & Dragons experience full of details that will excite fans through the building process and beyond.”

The LEGO Ideas community were also given a chance to design the cover of the set’s building instructions. The winning design from Chris Yu features an epic battle of good against evil centered around the game’s 20-sided die.

Fans can also get a specially created D&D adventure book, created in partnership by Wizards of the Coast and the LEGO Group. Available for LEGO Insiders as a free digital download, or as a paperback book for 2,700 Insider points (whilst stocks last). The book is also available at D&D Beyond along with character sheets, a digital dice and more.

“LEGO bricks and Dungeons & Dragons have been used by fans to generate stories and build adventures for so long that bringing these two creative brands together during our 50th Anniversary felt like a no-brainer,” said Dan Rawson, Global Play Lead on Dungeons & Dragons and RPGs.

“With the amazing LEGO Ideas set designed by Lucas Bolt, the adventure package available on D&D Beyond, and the LEGO Minifigure series coming this fall, fans will have so many new sparks of imagination available to enjoy creating fantasy stories together with friends and family.”

The LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons: Red Dragon’s Tale set is available for LEGO Insiders from April 1st via LEGO Stores and – and for all from April 4th. In addition, between April 1st and 7th, all purchases of the set will receive a LEGO Dungeons & Dragons Mimic Dice Box as a free gift.

Looking further ahead, a LEGO Dungeons & Dragons Minifigure series will launch in September.
