was a small city in the kingdom of Cormyr
, lying where the Way of the Manticore
crossed the Wyvernflow River
. A town sprawling across both sides of the river, it was sometimes nicknamed the "Jade Towers" for its ubiquitous green slate roof tiles. Wheloon grew up around the Wyvern Ferry crossing
, linking Cormyr's two busiest trade routes, and becoming one of the kingdom's most prosperous and industrious towns. It was famous for its talented craftsfolk and entrepreneurs, who built boats and wagons, fashioned baskets, grew fruit and other foodstuffs, bred pets, and created cheap transport companies.
Though it once was the site of a battle with the Witch Lords and was one of those places conquered by the Lost King Gondegal, Wheloon oft-enjoyed only a small role in Cormyr's history, thanks to rulers like Lord Sarp Redbeard who worked for the good of Wheloon, rather than that of the crown. Unfortunately, it later hosted a false temple to Mystra, which was found to be a front for cultists of Shar, and was eventually turned into a prison city for Shar worshipers and Shadovar, and its cobbled streets came to be dominated by gangs of rogues.
Storm King's Thunder
is an adventure module and sourcebook for the Forgotten Realms
using the 5th-edition ruleset of Dungeons & Dragons
. Set in the Savage Frontier
region of the late 15th century DR
, it pits players against giants
of many varieties.
|| To Fight Giants, You Must Be Giant
Ages ago, giants and dragons waged war across the Savage Frontier. These battles are long forgotten by the human civilizations of today, but ancient relics remain. And now, the land shudders once more with the thunder of giant footsteps.
Hill giants raid farms for food and livestock, as stone giants lay waste to settlements in their path. Frost giants plunder coastal towns, as fire giants gather slaves. Cloud giant castles drift across the sky, casting ominous shadows on the cities of the North. But no threat compares to the wrath of the storm giants, who stand betrayed.
Puny adventurers must rise to the challenge, gather their strength, unlock the power of ancient runes, and take the fight to the giants' doorsteps. Only then can they discover a hidden evil fomenting a war between giants and small folk. Only then can they forge an alliance to end the war before it begins.
A Dungeons & Dragons® adventure for characters of levels 1–10. For use with the fifth edition Player's Handbook®, Monster Manual®, and Dungeon Master's Guide®.
