Our group just finished Hoard of the Dragon Queen. I was finding it incredibly difficult to keep up with the plot (it just wouldn't stick in my brain). All I wanted, the entire time, was a dumbed-down version that I could just read so I could understand what was going on, what we had just done, without giving away key plot points, or hidden things that we had (undoubtedly) missed.
I really wanted a sparknotes version of HotDQ. We are going into Rise of Tiamat next (despite me buying our DM the book for Tomb of Annihilation).
I really want to know if there are any resources where I can find the basics of the module, without getting spoilers for it. Being able to read it would help me so much more than trying to figure out what's going on while our group fails to follow along with what our DM wants.
