Join us as Dragon+ turns its attention to the most gigantic of foes in our Storm King’s Thunder issue. A Brief History of Giants looks back at D&D giants through the ages, artist Tyler Jacobson contemplates his giant-sized task in bringing these iconic foes to life, and we also examine the making of WizKids’ Storm King’s Thunder miniatures. On the digital aside, there’s behind-the-scenes access to Neverwinter’s Storm King’s Thunder module with designer Thomas Foss, plus an in-depth look at the coolest technologies being used around the table.
To round things off, we present new fiction, chat with author Erin M. Evans on the epic conclusion to her Brimstone Angels series—and even provide a free adventure, Wizard in a Bottle, for every reader to download from the Dungeon Masters Guild.
All this, plus all our regulars and specials in issue 9 of Dragon+!
