I'm a newbie DM and I loved running this one-shot for some of my internet friends. I ran it for a party of 4 level 4 characters. It was so much fun. I loved how the jewels/gems impacted the game play. I was able to keep the Giants identity hidden until the ending scramble back to the portal. The realization moment when the heart appeared was just glorious. The only thing I had trouble with was managing the final battle I felt like I was utilizing the enemies well enough because I was afraid of killing off the party. The players said they loved it though. If you are a newbie DM like me try out this one-shot! It's very straight forward but also has a lot of give for your players to make choices without feeling railroaded.

Thank you so much for your review! That's so cool that you kept the giant's identity a secret; that is not easy to do! I can totally see how the final battle can be tricky to run. I went back and forth a lot on how many enemies to include; so much depends on which gemstones the players end up with and which creatures they fight by the time they get to the heart. But I am considering adding a scalable option to better account for this, so thanks for the feedback! I'm so glad you and your players enjoyed the adventure. :)

Ran this last night with 3 level 5s. I gave them a sub set of the gems and leveled up the dragon to a Young Dragon and it was a blast. A nice variety of challenges. We even had one death due to someone thinking he could break through an "icy wall" finding himself in a sticky situation.

So glad you and your group had a great time! :) Happy to hear that the scale-up worked well (a little TOO well, sounds like!). Thanks so much for the review!

This adventure takes a very basic and straightforward dungeon crawl and injects a level of fantastic energy befitting the finest strangeness D&D has to offer through the use of a few creative setting elements and some truly inspired magical gemstones. The encounters are simple enough to be run by a first time DM, and the setting elements are compelling enough to trap the attention and interest of veteran players.

I commend the author for crafting such an interesting tale around what would otherwise be a straightforward dungeon or tomb encounter. Pick up Sleeping Giant Mountain and toss some jink in the tip jar. Well worth it!
