Storm King’s Thunder Review
Fight against the giants in this adventure of the best role-playing game in the world. To defeat the giants, you must be a giant!
Giants have emerged from their strongholds to threaten civilization like never before. The hill giants are stealing all the grain and livestock they can, while the stone giants have been razing settlements that have existed forever. Fire giants are driving the little people into the desert, while ice giant ships have been plundering along the Sword Coast. Even the elusive cloud giants have been witnessed, with their wondrous floating cities appearing above Waterdeep and Baldur’s Gate. Where is King Hekaton, the storm giant, who is tasked with maintaining order among the giants?
The humans, dwarves, elves, and other small people of the Sword Coast will be crushed by the attack of these giant enemies. The only chance for survival is for the little people to work together to investigate this invasion and harness the power of rune magic, the weapon of the giants against their ancient enemy the dragons. The only way the people of Faerun can restore order is to use the giants’ own power against them.
