stormDungeons & Dragons 5th: Storm King’s Thunder (Hardcover)

$49.95

 

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.

The Ed Greenwood Group

Twin Fire Productions

Creative Coterie: TEGG and Twin Fire Join Forces

 

TORONTO and DETROIT—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and Twin Fire Productions (TFP) today reached a creative coterie, a partnership, with The Archmage himself, Mr. Ed Greenwood.

 

In 2014, TFP unveiled an ingenious board game called Folklore: The Affliction, a release that was received with great critical acclaim as well as broad public support. As TFP finishes polishing and tweaking the game in time for a spring 2016 release, creative director Will Donovan will be working with Ed Greenwood on initializing two new aspects to the game: first, a series of roleplaying game (RPG) adventures; second, a series of novels from TEGG authors tied to the setting Folklore: Tales of the Affliction. Both aspects will use characters from the existing board game and also feature new characters in new adventures from the TEGG Sessorium of Creatives. Greenwood and Donovan will work together to guide the continuing folklore adventures in both the fiction and RPG lines.

 

“I grew up reading books and playing adventures written by Greenwood… That he loved what we created was awesome…that we now get to create together is incredible! The creative opportunity to extend our realm’s reach by adding novels and RPG adventures by working with Steven Schend and Ed Greenwood is fantastic,” said Will Donovan, creative director at TFP. “We’ve already got some great ideas flowing—the fans are going to be well pleased.”

 

The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches this fall with its first novel, a brand-new Ed Greenwood title. Your World Is Doomed is the first novel in an urban fantasy setting called Hellmaw; 6 story arcs, 86 novels, 14 anthologies, 5 games, and 9 Artifacts are planned between Mr. Greenwood’s first novel in 2015 and the end of the sixth story arc, projected for October 2022. Next year (2016) will see the launch of a more traditional sword-and-sorcery setting code-named Pony Island Adventures. More settings in more genres will follow over the next ten years—For Wolf & Empire (steampunk), Lost Princesses of Mars (space opera), and In So Deep (sex fantasy), to name only a few. Quickblade, designed by TEGG head of game development Steven Schend and Ed Greenwood, is The Ed Greenwood Group’s RPG house rules and will serve as a master rules set for all adventures from all settings.

 

“I love what the gang at Twin Fire have done thus far,” said Ed Greenwood, president and publisher at TEGG. “It’s really beautiful stuff all around, and I am very much looking forward to working and creating both stories and adventures with them. This is going to be fun!”

TORONTO—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and Dungeons and Dragons Under the Influence (DnDUI) are pleased to announce DnDUI will become an official TEGG Gaming Group. Game Master Marco Butruzzo and his gaming group—Nick Etherton, Adriano Burtuzzo, CJ Bosco, Daniel Moscato and Raf Giancola—will assist Ed Greenwood, and TEGG head of game development Steven Schend, by advance play-testing TEGG games. The team will provide feedback and insight that will be used to improve all aspects of the games from concept to playability to design look and feel.

 

Over 200+ episodes DnDUI has become quite the established, and fan loved podcast. What started out as a group of friends just gaming together in-front of a laptop has turned into one of Toronto’s top podcasts and one of the biggest Dungeons & Dragons® podcasts in North America. Weekly podcasts treat audiences to laugh-a-minute content with Marco leading his mischievous group playing not just Dungeons & Dragons® but other games—roleplaying and table top. While DnDUI informs audiences about the games, the artwork and the rules, etc…they also do an amazing job of showing audiences just how much fun each of the games are to play too. And now DnDUI is bring their great skills of game evaluation and assessment to The Ed Greenwood Group.

 

“Holy Crap! We’re working with Ed F*cking Greendwood!” said Marco Burtuzzo, the group’s charismatic leader. “Can’t wait to get started,” said Nick Etherton, DnDUI’s illustrator, “This is going to be so incredible, it’s like a childhood dream.” Ed Greenwood, who first met members of the gang at a 2014 convention, was taken by the group’s energy relaxed attitude. “Marco and his DnDUI group are fun guys to game with. While their pod cast is definitely for adults only, that’s okay by us,” said Ed Greenwod president and publisher. “It’s important when reviewing games that they be honest, and of course, be themselves.”
