Description

No matter what angle is taken to integrate the new DnD character options, the additions add a solid amount of flavor and potential to any build. All updates are being done with care to make sure anything from fifth edition will continue to be fully playable. Glory of the Giants amply succeeds at being a GM-focused book that fleshes out the history and social structure of the giants, providing tools to help the DM make better giant-focused adventures and also more reasons for the DM to want to create more giant-focused adventures.

The ability to cast comprehend languages without a spell slot once a day gives Rune Shapers the potential to easily interact with people or creatures that can speak any language, a tool of enormous advantage for solving mysteries and resolving disputes. Most notably, many of these types of giants were front and center as the primary antagonists in the 2016 campaign book The Storm King’s Thunder. Chapter 4: Giant Enclaves: The material presented here offers background information on a variety of giant-themed locations, including several maps and adventure ideas. As part of the launch of Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants, Wizkids has released a new miniature lineup inspired by the book.The standard cover and alt cover version of the new sourcebook What is Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants about? Of the eight new feats available, seven are connected to Giant Foundlings, as the basic Strike of the Giants feat available to Giant Foundlings or characters with Martial Weapon Proficiency serves as the prerequisite for a variety of third-level feats.

Dungeon Masters will gain inspiration for bringing giants to life, from maps of giant-built sites and big new monsters to tremendous treasures and intriguing trinkets in a giant's bag! Characters with the Rune Carver background or a Spellcasting Feature have access to the Rune Shaper feat instead, which becomes more versatile as proficiency bonus increases. Perhaps the most fun feature that Path of the Giant barbarians can employ on the battlefield is Mighty Impel, which allows them to hurl smaller creatures to other spaces within range. There are mechanics and maps in Glory of the Giants, but my single favorite part of the book was advice for DMs on how to depict giants in a game, and especially ground-level tips on how to do things like convey how much bigger they are than the characters – maybe standing up while speaking at the giant, a bit of boom to your voice, or a some rumble to the table.

You will find a look at their mythical history, but it’s about the giant all-father and his children and his disappointment with the giants and then the book pulls that material into how giant society functions and judges its members and their actions. Rune Carvers are better for characters focusing on an intellectual and artistic approach, with proficiencies in History and Perception and a set of artisan's tools. Each of these runes is associated with spells that have already been introduced in DnD 5e — the Death rune allows players to cast inflict wounds, for example, while the Fire rune gives spellcasters the power of burning hands. Notably, some of these elements were previously released and playtested in the “ Giant Options” Unearthed Arcana. As you might guess from the length, these enclaves are presented as sources of ideas, rather than complete encounters.

Both of these options provide interesting magical potential and roleplaying opportunities alike, as characters with deep connections to giants are unlikely to encounter many people who share their experiences in most campaign settings. Path of the Giant barbarians can also fool around out of combat, with the third-level ability to learn the druidcraft or thaumaturgy cantrip opening up creative possibilities that other DnD barbarians might not be able to access. Also, for reasons unclear to me, there’s a Cheshire cat (don’t get me wrong, it’s neat, I’m just not sure why this is the book it showed up in).Depending on the player and dungeon master, a barbarian transformed through rage can either maintain their fundamental appearance at a larger scale or change into a giant-like or even Elemental form. No matter what strikes the fancy of players or dungeon masters among the subclass, background, and feat options in Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants, the new sourcebook offers plenty of new ways to bring variety to the game table.
