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 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.

Tyrants of the Underdark is a deck construction area control game.
After reading the rules it sounds wicked! It’s produced by Gale Force 9 and Wizards of the Coast.

When I first heard about this game at the Alliance open house I thought oh sweet some cool minis for D&D – don’t think that.  Think I’m Drow instead.

Please check out my Gofundme to help with Gen Con expenses.  Thanks in advance!

Flip Through Out of the Abyss

In this flip Through Matt Takes a look at out of the Abyss.  I’ve always been a fan of the underdark and I love the role reversal they do with this title.  Most books are about delving into the darkeness, this one is about trying to run from it.  There are so many good things about this book.

I think it’s one of the best written adventure guides I’ve ever read.

The Underdark is a subterranean wonderland, a vast and twisted labyrinth where fear reigns. It is the home of horrific monsters that have never seen the light of day. It is here that the dark elf Gromph Baenre, Archmage of Menzoberranzan, casts a foul spell meant to ignite a magical energy that suffuses the Underdark and tears open portals to the demonic Abyss. What steps through surprises even him, and from that moment on, the insanity that pervades the Underdark escalates and threatens to shake the Forgotten Realms to its foundations. Stop the madness before it consumes you!

 

This screen is the perfect companion for those Dungeon Masters running the Out of the Abyss adventure, or any trek into the Underdark. The front includes ominous images of several demon lords while the back provides quick reference to maps, random encounter tables, and everything you need for an extended stay in the Underdark.
