May 22, Jerry T rated it it was amazing. Hoard of the Dragon Queen is the first of two books in the Tyranny of Dragons questline. The book is a quest for players, in which players head to the town of Greenest, expecting it to be warm and welcoming, but it's a bit too warm. It's in flames, being attacked by the Cult of the Dragon.
Players must fend off the cult, then head to their camp and infiltrate their dragon egg storage. From there, they must go on the road to catch the cultists and prevent them from gathering their treasure for th Hoard of the Dragon Queen is the first of two books in the Tyranny of Dragons questline. From there, they must go on the road to catch the cultists and prevent them from gathering their treasure for the dragon queen. It's a great book, and I would highly recommend it, even though it's more of a guide.

My first thought was that Skyrim had a more engaging plot and along similar lines. The places, enemies, NPCs and even illustrations leave something to be desired.
It's not even well organized. I'm glad the books have been of better I picked this up from my local library, one of the only ttrpg books they have in the collection, and wow was I disappointed. I'm glad the books have been of better quality than this as 5e has progressed. I have to say, for all the love I have for the 5th Edition, this campaign was rather disappointing. In fact, the whole treatment of the Cult of the Dragon, Dragons in general, as well as the Forgotten Realms is too dumbed down for my taste.
The whole concept is to take the players by the hand, one of the main foci is game equity, rather than story and this whole "everyone belongs to one of the factions" bit -which is very useful for organized play- feels too MMO guild. Jun 12, Kevin Leung rated it it was ok. Not great. You may be tempted to play it to work through all of the published modules, but I think this is worth skipping. I don't think it presents strong motivation for the players, and it isn't designed for much flexibility, so it felt like I was pushing the players along.
Do Lost Mines of Phandelver, then skip over to another one of the books. Jul 04, Matheus Evangelista De Souza rated it it was ok. It's both a clusterfuck and railroady as hell. Still, it can provide good moments - but that don't really justify picking it over other published modules. Aug 15, Bret rated it liked it. As a source book, this is fine. As an adventure it is also fine. I would easily recommend this to a 1st time DM, though. I would give this 5 stars for that.
Hoard of the Dragon Queen Adventure Dungeons And Dragons Hardcover
If someone is new to 5th edition AND new to being a Dungeon Master, this is an excellent introduction. Jul 10, Peter Bond rated it it was ok. A weaker adventure. I would send others to different 5e adventures first. Jan 16, Frobeg Ochaeta rated it really liked it.
I liked a lot how the story is so open but does not delve too much into unecessary details, just enough to make a cohesive path leaving enough gaps to improvise. Besides Dragons are so awesome. Jan 24, Dana rated it really liked it. I am planning on DMing a version of this with my brother for his friends, and although we are changing some things to this plot, we are going to be using this and the next book in the series to help us with our first actual campaign.
I am really excited for this because it has both fights and character driven plot points that we'll be able to use to test our players in different ways. I can't wait to play this one out!
Feb 01, Luke rated it liked it. The story just isn't all the impressive. It's pretty classic fare with not a lot of payoff at the end. The descriptions of events are vague, the motives of the baddies left almost non-existent, and some things designed and expected aren't reasonable. If you rate this product 'to game as offered', it's mediocre. I submit, though, that's not the product's role.

As such, the strict railroad nature of the story ensures DMs can't miss the key points needed to connect the dots, while the vague motivations means you're free to tie this story into your existing world or fill your villains with a more personal ideology.
Aug 15, Therin Stapp rated it liked it Shelves: rpg-resources. I started running this campaign as a once-a-month game last month actually for the second time after a false start a few months ago , but I just finished reading it today. I think that the gaming experience will be really good, and this book has tons of great ideas in it. I would say that it is VERY poorly organized, and there's much more in the book than can actually be remembered and used while running a game.

I'm running this for some fairly inexperienced players, so it's going to take a looong time. So far my advice to you is to consider starting the characters at 2nd level. The first chapter is rough, without many opportunities to rest, heal, and get back spells. Good times. Aug 23, Tony Calder rated it really liked it Shelves: role-playing.
The start of the adventure is, I feel, the weakest part, but a lot of that can be put down to it being the first major adventure, so a lot of allowance has to be provided for players who are new to the game.
Hoard of the Dragon Queen by Wolfgang Baur
From chapter 2 onwards, the adventure becomes much stronger. The adventure provides a good mix of combat and role-playing opportunities. There are many encounters that can be solved by either, but some will require combat. It is, I suppose, possible to go through the entire module without role-playing, but I suspect that very few players would be able to finish - a scorched earth policy is likely to lead to failure, either through party destruction against a superior foe, or through not knowing how to proceed because they will have missed vital clues by killing everyone.

To this end, they are sweeping from town to town, laying waste to all those who oppose them and gathering a hoard of riches for their dread queen. The threat of annihilation has become so dire that groups as disparate as the Harpers and Zhentarim are banding together in the fight against the cult. Never before has the need for heroes been so desperate.
