    Storm King's Thunder

    4 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder I have been gushing about all the great things in Storm King’s Thunder to this point. I have to admit that there are a few low points. Typos are there, which is not surprising from a first printing. The high amount of magic could also be considered a...

    Storm King's Thunder

    4 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder Overall, if you like buying Dungeons & Dragons pre-made adventures, I highly recommend this product. While the $49.95 MSRP price tag may seem a bit steep for some, the amount of content provided seems well worth it. No doubt the price will eventually...

    Storm King's Thunder

    5 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder Based on my experience running Storm King’s Thunder as a novice DM, I continue to be impressed with the quality of work that Wizards of the Coast puts into their roleplaying game peripherals. The art is fantastic, the maps are meticulous and all of it...

    Storm King's Thunder

    5 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder Short version of this review: Storm King’s Thunder is the best 5th edition D&D adventure yet, and its Roll20 adaptation shows clearly that Roll20 is the best virtual tabletop on the market. All in all, Storm King’s Thunder is a remarkably clever story...

    Storm King's Thunder

    3 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder Before we jump in, I just want to point out that I think this adventure is probably the second-best one so far. I have a lot of issues with things in this book, but in general I'd say that if you have a little time to sort through this and pull out the...

    Storm King's Thunder

    5 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder In all, this is an excellent adventure book. It’s full of epic battles, interesting NPCs and tons of fantastical locations to explore. Whenever I get the opportunity, I’ll definitely run Storm King’s Thunder. Full review at Crit for Brains.

    Storm King's Thunder

    4 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder If you like more traditional D&D type adventures in the Forgotten Realms and want to return to that after the enjoyable but less standard adventures of Out of the Abyss and Curse of Strahd, pick this bad boy up. If you are a fan of giants in fantasy...

    Storm King's Thunder

    2 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder As a series of adventures, I think Storm King’s Thunder is good. It updates and modernizes some classic D&D giant’s lair tropes, adds a few new ones, and clarifies the boundaries of what a 5th Edition D&D campaign looks like. As a campaign, though, as...

    Storm King's Thunder

    2 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder Beset by a thin plot, forced transitions, and a lot of dead pages, Storm King’s Thunder does not live up to the standards of most of the prior D&D 5E adventures, especially Curse of Strahd and Out of the Abyss. I love to see an effort that, like Storm...

    Storm King's Thunder

    4 out of 5 rating for Storm King's Thunder Is Storm King’s Thunder the best 5th edition adventure Wizards has ever done? Well, I can tell you that from an organizational and technical standpoint, it certainly is. It successfully improves upon the mistakes of its predecessors and delivers the...

    Volo’s Guide to Monsters

    5 out of 5 rating for Volo’s Guide to Monsters This is one of my favorite 5th edition books and should be useful for more games out there than the Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide (2015). I’ve already used lore (gnolls) and addition monsters (gnolls, NPC Blackguard) in my current game, and the...

    Volo’s Guide to Monsters

    5 out of 5 rating for Volo’s Guide to Monsters Volo’s Guide to Monsters is one seriously cool book, but is it another Monster Manual, a sourcebook, or something else entirely? Answer? All of the above. Yes, it’s a new Monster Manual. Yes, it’s a sourcebook. That plus some other stuff and all...

    Volo’s Guide to Monsters

    5 out of 5 rating for Volo’s Guide to Monsters Volo's Guide to Monsters is going to be a regular on my table, and I'll be plucking out nasties and their stories to creep out my friends for a long time. I love the marriage of narrative and mechanical information. It's easy to ignore if you just...
