D&D Adventure League Storm King's Thunder - Wednesdays at Waterford [DM Richard]

This table is Tier 2 (Levels 5-10), APL is 6th.

"Giants have emerged from their strongholds to threaten civilization as never before. Hill giants are stealing all the grain and livestock they can while stone giants have been scouring settlements that have been around forever. Fire giants are press-ganging the smallfolk into the desert, while frost giant longships have been pillaging along the Sword Coast. Even the elusive cloud giants have been witnessed, their wondrous floating cities appearing above Waterdeep and Baldur’s Gate. Where is the storm giant King Hekaton, who is tasked with keeping order among the giants?"

"The humans, dwarves, elves, and other small folks of the Sword Coast will be crushed underfoot from the onslaught of these giant foes. The only chance at survival is for the small folk to work together to investigate this invasion and harness the power of rune magic, the giants’ weapon against their ancient enemy the dragons. The only way the people of Faerûn can restore order is to use the giants’ own power against them."

(You can download Hekaton's Lament here)

For this table, if you would like to play a Ranger or a Way of the Four Elements (WotFE) Monk, here is a pdf of the Revised Ranger in the most recent Unearthed Arcana as well as an improvement of the WotFE Monk that I'll allow to be used at my table. (For those wondering, I made this PDF with the Homebrewery Tool by Natural Crit).


IMPORTANT NOTE: D&D Adventurers League (DDAL) rules permit a maximum of 7 players per table. When you sign up, please be careful to select the DM that runs your usual table. If you do not sign up on the event page and the table fills up, it will be the DM's discretion if you are permitted to play as a walk-in. Thank you!

This D&D Encounters campaign is designed for players both experienced and new to the game of Dungeons & Dragons and to 5th Edition (D&D 5E). The campaign is set in the long-established D&D setting of the Forgotten Realms in the land of Faerûn. The games will run each Wednesday evening from 7pm - 10~pm at the store. Come and create an original character to play, or choose a pre-generated character to explore this exciting and rich game world, filled with fearsome enemies, brave heroes, and wondrous magic. 

You need never have played D&D 5E (or any other edition of D&D for that matter). Experienced players are welcomed as well, but if you've played through the adventure, try not to spoil the story for new players! We welcome any and all who are interested in playing or learning the game. Come out and join the fun!

More DMs Wanted! Would you like to run a D&D Encounters table? Our community is growing and sooner or later we'll need more DMs. Talk to the DM at your table about the need and the opportunity to help our group grow.


FAQ

Q: Can I play the same character for multiple meetups during the week?   
A: No. D&D Adventure League rules permit you to only accumulate experience on one character at one D&D Adventure League session per week. You can play multiple nights, but you must play a different character each night. 

Q: Do I need any experience to play D&D Encounters? 
A: No. D&D Encounters is ideal for new or experienced players. It introduces a story and adventure that lets new players jump in and allows experienced players to fully engage their imaginations to help the game come alive.

Q: Waitlist? Attendee limit? Whaddya mean? 
A: D&D Encounters recognizes "official" game tables with a maximum of 7 players plus 1 DM. We have grown to 4 DMs and 4 tables, so until we can recruit more DMs, we need a wait list. Please get on the wait list and come out anyway if the event fills up. Sometimes people who sign up can't make it, and if the store sees that there's a demand for more DMs and more tables, they may help us recruit more!

Q: Do I have to play every week? 
A: No. D&D Encounters is designed so that the table continues the game each week wherever it left off the week before. You can show up every week and see the whole adventure or just come when you can make it and participate in the sessions when you are present.

Q: Do I have to buy any materials or books to play D&D Encounters? 
A: No. It will help to bring a pencil, but everything you need to play D&D Encounters will be available at the table. If you want to create a first-level character before you come, you can download free character sheets and basic D&D 5e Rules from the Wizards of the Coast website. You can also download the official D&D Adventurers League Player's Guide. Note that to be legal for D&D Encounters play, any original characters must be created following the D&D Adventurers League rules.

Q: Can I bring my spouse or friend to the game? 
A: Yes. D&D is always more fun with friends. Be sure to invite them or bring them along, and remember to add them as your +1 to your RSVP.

Q: Are you looking for more DMs for your location? 
A: We're always looking for people who would like to be DMs! Please come out and play on Monday or Wednesdays to get a feel for our game, our players, and our location. If you want to be a DM, make sure you tell us of your interest and give us your contact information. As demand grows, we'll reach out to those people who have shown an interest in running a table before anyone else!

Q: How do I get more information? 
A: You can leave a question here in this thread, or you can drop me an email at [masked] or Ken at [masked]. We look forward to seeing anyone who is interested and available in learning D&D 5e and playing the D&D Encounters official adventures.

    So I finally DM my game a week back with tyranny of dragons. Our heroes include:
    - a tiefling warlock with crime background.
    - a ladyboy half elf bard.
    - a grouchy human fighter.
    - and finally, a tabaxi rogue (a literal cat burglar)
    I'll give some highlights when I get to Wednesday game.
