DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e)
by Mark E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/20/2017 11:27:43

I recently ran this adventure for a new AL group. The encounters reminded me of the opening scenes of Lost Mines of Phandelver and worked well to give the players a mix of exploration and combat. I loved the mechanics for the kobold ambushes and alchemist inventions. They really helped keep the players on their toes and move the adventure along.

DDAL05-12 Bad Business in Parnast (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/20/2017 11:09:18

This module is super roleplay heavy, which I tend to enjoy as a player and as a DM. The opportunity for character growth and agency, in how they solve the mission and investigate around is fantastic. The module can be confusing at times, so its important for the DM to keep track of what is happening and make it aware to the players. I did like how the choices the player made influenced the outcome of the module, it made the chocies actually matter.

DDAL05-11 Forgotten Traditions (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/20/2017 10:48:12

Fantastic adventure. Incredibly fun, a ton of lore, and interesting player agency options. It is very important to know their factions and be able to track what parts of the module change when certain faction members are present. But I thoroughly enjoyed this module, because it felt challenging but not hopeless.

DDAL05-10 Giant Diplomacy (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/20/2017 10:41:13

This module was fantastic - it had so many roleplay opportunities and still felt incredibly challenging. The Giant Contest was the most enjoyable part of the module, and was personally my favorite part of the entire module. The final encounter CAN be very deadly depending on party make-up, but offers a lot of chances for interesting solutions. Overall, a great module.

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/20/2017 10:35:17

The puzzles pose an interesting challenge to the players, but I found them feeling repetitive. I did appreciate the amount of lore present, specifically concerning magic and how it affected people, I thought that was interesting for the players. I also think the downtime activity is fun, as those spells can be hard to come by.

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/20/2017 10:28:03

This module felt almost tedious - the terrain effects of the marsh can either be interesting or bog the party down and ultimately punishing to characters. Although it makes sense from a logistical standpoint, the players tended to not like this part of the module.

DDAL05-05 A Dish Best Served Cold (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2017 21:53:33

This module provided ample opportunity for player agency, and due to all the choices the characters can make. I think it is a really good way to handle player agency, as each action is clearly mapped out to what will happen in the module, which makes it easy for DMs to run, and fun for players to follow. It is important to know the rules for exhaustion and travel.

DDAL05-04 In Dire Need (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2017 21:48:08

I felt that this module was overall fun, and a great introduction to the Stagwick region. The introduction to SEER was great, and having a task was nice, but the random encounters felt tedious at times, becuase of the reliance on them for the experience gain. In addition, the orc tribe felt overwhelming as well, but was also an interesting challenge to overcome.

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e)
by Jonathan J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2017 21:46:17

Either the map or the area descriptions should have been more specific about where exactly the traps were or where the NPCs would stand. I had to wing it and guess.

For low levels, even after adjusting for the very weak party rules, the early and late encounters can be brutal.

Overall, little preparation is needed.

I enjoyed the small amounts of humor, especially the self-pit puddy.

The limited roleplaying was a good start for my mostly under 15-year old table.

DDAL05-03 Uninvited Guests (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2017 21:40:47

The amount of player agency in this is great, as well as use of the Fey and incorporating them more into the storyline of the season and specifically the Parnast region. Although it's listed as 2 hours, it can easily be expanded into 4 hours.

DDAL05-02 The Black Road (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2017 21:37:42

This module served as a great way to get the players to the area of Parnast while introducing the main threat to Parnast and the PCs. While not introducing the city in any major way, I think it does a good job of illustrating a problem as well as letting the PCs feel like heroes in the situations present. Finally, I think the option for player choice in the module is nice, as it gives players agency in determining parts of the module.

DDAL05-01 Treasure of the Broken Hoard (5e)
by Blake J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2017 21:34:48

This module, I felt, provided a good introduction to the season 5 storyline, both hardcover and module, as well as offers a chance for learning about giant culture and understanding a multi-faceted problem of faerun. I also think that the story rewards are fun and can offer a lot of roleplay opportunity.

DDAL05-19 Eye of Xxiphu (5e)
by Joshua N. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/19/2017 16:28:34

Recommend Purchase: Yes. XP Range: 18750-25000

The Season 5 Hardcover (Storm King's Thunder) is an amazing sandbox that spans the entire northwest Swordcoast. Unlike seasons 1-3 these storyline modules actually occur in the same area and mesh well with the hardcover. This is the first season to include the digial certificate for permanent magic items.

Before running any Season 5 module, you should download the following content from DMSGUILD and read it fully:

  • Season 5 Narrative: Parnast, Stagwick, & Beregost Sadly this was released only AFTER the season was over :(

  • A Guide to the Factions of Faerun Lots of Faction stuff in Season 5, so your players should be engaged with the Faction they've chosen.
