The Steading of the Hill Giant Chief – Game Session – 002

Game summary for June 28, 2012, Priscus Venatus campaign, G1: The Steading of the Hill Giant Chief adventure; present PCs included Ardel Blueback (dwarf fighter), Crularin Gellantara (druid), and Emeran Galathar (elf fighter/magic-user) and present henchmen included Rowena Starblaze (magic-user).

The party followed the trail left by the hill giants fought earlier until night.  Then, Ardel crafted a shelter for the evening to keep out the storm predicted by Crularin.  After the rains, a mixed group of orcs, ogrillons, and ogres attacked.  The group had little trouble defeating this rabble, but they lost a horse in the exchange.  The following morning, Crularin shifted into horse form and was saddled and mounted by Rowena.  Thus arrayed, the group moved on into the day.

Eventually, the team came across a rock clearing in the foothills where they were ambushed by half a dozen bugbears and a fire giant.  The giant hurled rocks while the bugbears charged in.  Emeran was badly wounded, and Rowena was knocked out after being thrown for Crularin’s back.  Ardel attacked the giant but was injured as well.  Emeran tried his wand of wonder twice, once launching a lightning bolt falling short of the giant.  Next, he conjured a shimmering sheet of light that blinded his horse and drove it off in a panic.  Despite their setbacks, the team brought down the marauders and found a scrimshaw map leading to a point in the Jotuns.

The group traveled for days into the mountains and finally discovered a massive log homestead.  The moved to the side door where they seemed to be detected by over a dozen dog-sounding creatures.  As the group prepared to try and knock down the doors, a giant looked over the wall and screamed out, “elves and dwarves!” alerting the keep!
