Actual Play Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S16







Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S16

Another Fun week of D&D Encounters at Alakazam Comics. The Sword Coast Collective is moving closer and closer to the Hill Giants, and their massive leader Guh

The players are still rotating around a little--currently we have five great players at the table & my 8 year old son Cody who is now playing a gnome to great effect.


I still have a ton of room at the table




and the players are not feeling all that cramped.





We have some very new players so we are spending a lot of time reading the books, checking how spells work, fighting over Vancian mechanics, wondering if a Surprise Round is different then a round when people are surprised...that kind of classic D&D discussion...

SKT :: Midway Regroup

I am about half way through DMing Storm King's Thunder and I thought it was time to regroup.

I am being a little rail-y with the adventure & need to bring in a more serious set of threats and clearer direction for the heroes--they need to know where they are are going and why at this point.

There are some good tips here--Mike Shea always has some good ideas...I am also trying to catch up on the Dragon Bastard youtube series for more advice.

Storm King's Thunder--D&D Encounters S23 S15

Another fun week of D&D Encounters at Alakazam Comics in Irvine. Players are bringing great notebooks.


And rolling fantastic dice on wonderful character sheets.





I still have plenty of room behind the screen 



and have printed out more handouts



to go with the crazy stuff that I already have


The mini's look good on the table as well...
