Storm King’s Thunder $49.95
256 pp Hardcover
This 256-page adventure for characters level 1-11+ provides everything a Dungeon Master needs to create an exciting and memorable play experience for the Storm King’s Thunder story, including rune magic items, a new treasure option for characters.
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.
This another one of those monster campaign tomes that will keep a party busy for quite a while like Curse of Strahd. It’s 256 pages of dense material, with dozens of locations, and can keep a party busy from levels 1 through 11. As with curse of Strahd, look for a line of accessories and minis to accompany Storm King’s Thunder in the weeks ahead.
We’ve already seen GF9’s series of giants on display at GENCON:
