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.


Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S7

Another fun week of D&D Encounters at Alakazam Comics. The closest Starbucks is super slow, so I will be ordering remotely going foreword--but the crew is loving the coffee. Snacks are another issue--this week Brian brought Vegan Jerky which was, as you can imagine, amazing.

I had plenty of room posting up with my back to the door.

Cody and Jon had a blast--Cody spent a lot of time with Pizza and playing with the camera!

Goblins, Bugbears, and Ogres attacked the Goldenfields.

The combat map was classic D&D

The ogre was a trebuchet who launched squealing goblins at the party!

The mini's we have assembled are amazing!

The goblins are lighting the town on fire with skittles, the bugbears are looting, the ogre is launching goblins. The green skittled residents of Goldenfields are running to save their lives.

We had a nice early crit!

and the pirate keeps the streak alive with this 19 Crit
