Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ Adventuring Party looks like its going to one of the most famous cities in the DnD world of Faerûn.
A blink-and-miss-it clip from the latest Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves trailer seemingly reveals one famous location for the Party’s adventure.
Several moments in the trailer take part in a city as the team battle an unnamed Red Wizard. A closer look at the background in these shots reveals several banners, including a blue one that depicts the symbol for Neverwinter. Others banners have the same character placed within a golden sun on a red background, but that flag’s relevance remains unclear.
Neverwinter in DnD
Although the city is never referenced by name in the trailer, the banners suggest the film might see the Adventuring Party travel to Neverwinter, or at least someplace with reason to fly flags with its symbol. Neverwinter has appeared in multiple DnD campaigns and spinoff games, most famously Neverwinter Nights. However, it also appears as a major city on the map of Faerûn, the central continent in Dungeons & Dragons content.
Also known as the Jewel of the North or the City of Skilled Hands, Neverwinter sits on the West Coast of Faerûn. It’s located just North of another major DnD city, Waterdeep, and was regarded by the famed traveler Volo as the most civilized city on the continent. It’s best known for its crafters and gardeners that trade extensively with Waterdeep and other parts of the world. Notably, the city in the trailer even has a striking resemblance to illustrations of Neverwinter in the sourcebooks.
DnD: Honor Among Thieves’ Band of Losers
Honor Among Thieves‘ latest trailer also introduced Szass Tam, the Red Wizard leader, and showcased several classic DnD spells. The trailer also highlighted the chaotic and ineffective Adventuring Party, who struggled to fight the enemies they inadvertently helped to set the undead uprising in motion. During an interview promoting the film, actor Hugh Grant, who plays Forge Fitzwilliam the Rogue, described how the Party of “losers” drew him to the script.
“I think maybe what I responded to most in their script was that it’s about losers. This little band of comrades, they’re all a bit crap,” said Grant, before describing the various struggles for the Adventuring Party played by Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith and Sophia Lillis. “And I responded to that loser-ish thing about this little band. Maybe that’s an English predilection. We love a loser.”
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves hits theaters on March 31.
