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.

    \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to rpg.se. Take the tour, it's a useful introduction to how things work around here. It looks like your question may be closed as off-topic as a "shopping" question (there'll be links describing why) but don't take it personally, that's just not something this site is build to handle. It should be an easy fix to get on-topic for this site though. Questions work best here when they focus on the actual problem you're facing, rather than focusing on one supposed solution to that problem. \$\endgroup\$ – Purple Monkey Oct 28 '18 at 23:26

    \$\begingroup\$ If you can ask about your actual problem, instead of your solution, then we can certainly help with that. For example, your problem seems to be that your having trouble remembering key plot points and details, so maybe try asking how you can rectify that and let the solutions come to you rather than asking about your solution. I would also suggesting searching this site for other, similar questions as I'm sure there's plenty already out there that you might find an answer on. \$\endgroup\$ – Purple Monkey Oct 28 '18 at 23:26
