Actual Play Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S34





Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S34

Alakazam Comics D&D Adventure League is going strong--we ran three crowded tables--two Tier One tables with a lot of new players, so returning Grognards, and a DM in Cos Play.





I captured this strange image at some point during the night.



Really not sure what it is at all!


The game picked up where it left off--the Sword Coast Collective raiding Imryth's Desert layer.

The party had flown in Zyphro's Cloud Tower -- he attached the key as protection from the lightning he anticipated coming from the blue dragon


Beneath the amphitheater, there was an ancient sandstone temple buried beneath the sand being used by the dragon as a layer. Within the layer, some Yaun-Ti were performing a dark deranged ritual.



The party let the Giants deal with the dragon and charged the treasure horde where they were attacked by Air Elementals.


Some great die rolling, including this called CRITICAL...on a perception check...


And thus came to a close Storm King Thunder!

D&D in the Park with DM Cody



 

Cody DM'd his first game of Dungeons & Dragons in the park on Sunday. There were three 9 year old players and two adults. It was a simple caravan guard combat session with the party being attacked by modrons intent on stealing our Ballista. 

The interesting thing is that Cody invented a FANTASTIC mechanic. When draing the Caravan wagons on the battlemat he had the other players draw the wagons--they are in Red and Black below:


This really drew the players in & got the kids interested. 

I mean honestly it was amazing, I play a lot of D&D With kids and this was the first time I have seen kids this engaged.


The game was wonderful--we had some very fun role play and some good critical hits
