Storm King's Thunder Campaign
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
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 small folk 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 by 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 enemies, the dragons. The only way the people of Faerun can restore order is to use the giants’ own power against them.
How to prepare
Discord is required; I recommend the app rather than the website, as the web interface can sometimes be a bit flaky. You'll want to have your character created ahead of time, and ready to load into Roll20.
What I provide
I'll bring all of the stuff included with Roll20 Storm King's Thunder. In addition, players who sign up for 2 or more sessions will get a link to join my D&D Beyond Storm King's Thunder campaign, which will give you access to almost all of the official D&D character creation rules.
Sessions will be somewhat combat-focussed, with about half of our time together spent in murderous rampages :-D The remaining time will be spent in roughly equal amounts of the other two pillars (roleplaying and exploration). This might vary a bit from one session to the next.
Safety tools used
How will character creation work
