Actual Play Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S9






Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S9



I had not been able to run at Alakazam for a few weeks, so it was great to get back this week!


 


There were only three players in attendance this week & we had to move quickly since the Goldenfields fight had been kind of lagging. The party can dump a TON of damage each round and I have very little ability to hurt them.



I do love 5E Giants--I need to read the Volo's guide stuff on them as well as the stuff in the module around how to make them tougher.



the mini's are still looking very good on the map.

This week was also a CRIT BONANZA!

Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S8


Another week of D&D at Alakazam Comics.


The party is still battling an invasion at Goldenfields.


The team mini's and over all table layout is working perfectly


and the players are learning how their characters run in combat


I did not capture all the crits we saw this week

How many D&D Monsters Are There

On a recent D&D podcast Jeremy Crawford said we there were over 1,000. That number seemed a little high if we remove "unique" creatures--but I am really not sure...I think for 5E we are at about 500ish which would indicate 1,000 is definitely reasonable...

I thought it would be interesting to try to figure out what the exact count is.

Wiki has great lists, but they are hard to sort and get the dupes out, but that may be the best way.

I have also pinged some people who may have already answered this question.
