Storm-Kings-Thunder-Cover

This is a spoiler free review. I have read the book, but not DM’d the adventure yet.

From Wizards:

Giants have emerged from their strongholds to threaten civilization as never before. Hill giants are stealing all the grain and livestock they can while stone giants have been scouring settlements that have been around forever. Fire giants are press-ganging the smallfolk into the desert, while frost giant longships have been pillaging along the Sword Coast. Even the elusive cloud giants have been witnessed, their wondrous floating cities appearing above Waterdeep and Baldur’s Gate. Where is the storm giant King Hekaton, who is tasked with keeping order among the giants?

The humans, dwarves, elves, and other small folk of the Sword Coast will be crushed underfoot from the onslaught of these giant foes. The only chance at survival is for the small folk to work together to investigate this invasion and harness the power of rune magic, the giants’ weapon against their ancient enemy the dragons. The only way the people of Faerun can restore order is to use the giants’ own power against them.

Our Thoughts:

The Good

  • The Art is amazing
  • The story is well thought out
  • The plot connects to all 5e published adventures (even MoP)

The Badass

  • A lot of fleshed out NPCs that could be reskinned for other campaigns.
  • The body count is high, really high

The Ugly

  • No player content
  • A lot of plots and NPCs (not George RR Martin level, but close)

All in all this is a solid campaign. There are quests and side quests to keep your party busy, and the art and cartography are beautiful. But, while I understand we’ve moved away from the days of splat books and endless feats, a few new spells, backgrounds, and player options go a long way.

Decrease Your Prep Time with New Products from Limitless Adventures

Underdark Encounters – Ten D&D 5e random encounters set in the deadly subterranean realms of the Underdark. This is our second product through the Dungeon Master’s Guild. While the majority of our products will still be offered on our website, DM’s Guild allows us an opportunity to use monsters, places, and NPCs that are normally not available to us under the terms of the Open Game License, like the Underdark.

Arcane Quarter – this Limitless Location is comprised of ten places in the magic district of a city. Each location has a detailed NPC, hooks for further D&D adventures (30 total), and in the case of the shops, products for sale. The Arcane Quarter can be attached to an existing setting in your game world, or combined with other Limitless Locations to create a unique city.

Limitless Backgrounds: Acolyte – this new line of adventures is written to incorporate your players’ backgrounds as seeds for adventure. These quests will draw upon skills and tools gained by the character in the days before they became an adventurer.

Saturday, July 9th, is the opening day for this year’s Bristol Renaissance Faire. The Faire has long been a family favorite and I’ve attended every summer for the last 25 year or so. Bristol has great food, music, entertainment and drinks. If you live in the Midwest, I cannot recommend this event enough. So what’s new this year?
