Description

Mountain Giants: Incredibly strong and known for their cruelty, these creatures dwell in the remote depths of the mountains. Strike of the Giants comes in a number of types, allowing players to inflict damage correlating with their chosen variety once per turn when hitting a target with a weapon attack. Giant Foundlings gain some benefits when it comes to resilience, with skill proficiencies in Intimidation and Survival and a number of suggested personality traits that mostly speak to a determined mindset. The Rune Shaper feat offers a couple of multifaceted advantages, coming in the form of comprehend languages and Rune Magic.

In total, the new material in Glory of the Giants that directly contributes to choices for character building amounts to one subclass, two backgrounds, and eight feats.As noted previously, in May 2022, Wizards of the Coast also released the “Giant Options” Unearthed Arcana article, which introduced the giant subclass to 5th edition. Although it might seem like a book focusing on giants might only be useful for characters with giant blood in their veins, the new options don't only apply to firbolgs and goliaths.

It’s the sort of small things that almost any DM can do, and that can really make an encounter more memorable.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. 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.

Discerning players can gain a lot from balancing the expenditure of spell slots and these invocations as long as they properly understand the risk of cutting off access to any specific spell. A character with the Giant Foundling background grew up among giants and leeched some power from their environment, while a Rune Carver learned Rune Magic through diligent work. Glory of the Giants leaves me wanting to break out some of those pretty giant-sized miniatures I’ve got sitting on my shelf and get them back into the game. In Glory of the Giants we learn that he has been killed and reincarnated as a gnome (because when he died they only had a druid handy, not a cleric), and has developed a bit of a fascination with giants that tends to make his comments a bit fawning. Adds giant-themed player character options where adventurers can evoke the glory of giants with new subclasses, backgrounds and feats.com/dnd/bigby-presents-glory-of-the-giants-review) - I think it's a really strong resource for DMs who need Giant-related ideas. There is something for players, but it’s not much – a few backgrounds (giant foundling, rune carver) and one subclass (the barbarian’s Path of the Giant). Each of the classic giant types has a couple of variations – some sort of corrupted iteration (such as a fire giant of evil fire or a stalker of Baphomet), an undead version (such as the barrowghast), a fancier version (such as the hill giant avalancher), and a ‘hulk’ (descendents of giants who have become elementals). Here Bigby and the demigod Diancastra, child of the giants' All-Father, Annam, unveil the secrets of Annam's mighty descendants. Hill Giants: Arguably, the weakest and least intelligent giants, they can be quick to anger and often roam the wilds.

It’s possible that other products (such as DM screens and tie-in adventures) will also be coming out after launch, although nothing has officially been announced by Wizards of the Coast. The 2024 rules revisions are designed to be fully compatible with everything you’re playing today in fifth edition. There’s also a lot of effort to expand on the giant’s larger cultural structure, pushing them towards something a bit more than being big plus one obsession per giant type.Earning enough XP can infuse the weapons that raging Path of the Giant barbarians use with extra power and eventually increase their size to Huge if they so choose. Chapter 6: Bestiary: The final chapter of the book features over 70 new monster stat blocks, including death giants, gargantua, ettin variants, elemental hulks, undead giants and even kaiju. This could be used to safely move allies or reposition enemies, with the possibility to deal damage by tossing a foe onto a space that doesn't support them. Players will find a wealth of giant-themed character options: a subclass for barbarians, two backgrounds related to giants and their runic magic, and feat options that evoke the strength and primal magic of the giants. With a new subclass as well as several new backgrounds and feats, Glory of the Giants makes it easy to build characters that are larger-than-life in memorability even if not in stature.
