What is Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants about?
According to Wizards of the Coast the book will be “the definitive tome of giant gameplany in D&D.” They’ve also indicated that it will be similar to Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons, the 5th edition D&D sourcebook that was published back in October 2021. That book provided players and DMs with an in-depth view of all-things related to dragons, including a number of new races, spells, magic items and adventure ideas.
But while Treasury of Dragons was narrated by the eccentric wizard Fizban of Dragonlance fame, Glory of the Giants will instead by narrated by the legendary D&D wizard Bigby, along with the and giant demigoddess Diancastra.
The book is further broken out into the following chapters:
Chapter 1: Character Options: This will feature a variety of new player options, including the “path of the giant” Barbarians subclass and two new backgrounds (the Giant Foundling and Rune Carver). Additionally, the chapter will include eight new feats. Notably, some of these elements were previously released and playtested in the “Giant Options” Unearthed Arcana.
Chapter 2: Giants in Play: This chapter will feature a section on roleplaying giants and expand the lore around giant society, religion and the pantheon of gods (known as the Ordning).
Chapter 3: Giant Adventures: This section will offer a variety of options and advice for DMs when it comes to running giant-themed encounters, adventures and campaigns.
Chapter 4: Giant Enclaves: The material presented here offers background information on a variety of giant-themed locations, including several maps and adventure ideas.
Chapter 5: Giant Treasures: This chapter details 30 unique magic items inspired by the world of giants.
Chapter 6: Bestiary: The final chapter of the book features over 70 new monster stat blocks, including death giants, gargantua, ettin variants, elemental hulks, undead giants and even kaiju. It also includes more details on the giant-based humanoids of Goliaths and Firbolgs.
As with previous D&D sourcebooks, there is also both a standard cover version and an alt cover version of the book.
