Triboar

While in Triboar asking about for news about Harshnag, they overheard a pair of farmer brothers trying to convince the local Lord Protector that their brother, missing for 10 years, was still in town. A traveling priest of Helm used a divination spell to tell them this. Fargrim the paladin investigated and discovered the man’s skeleton in the attic of his wife’s boarding house. The wife was taken into custody and the brothers gave the party their brothers heirloom, a magical longbow. They made plans to head towards the Evermoor where a woodland scout mentioned having seen Harshnag some time ago. Before they could leave however, the town was suddenly attacked by a pair of Fire Giants leading a group of Orcs, Orogs, and Magmin.

While camping on the road in a forested area, the party was ambushed by an assassin accompanied by ruffians. The managed to slay the bandits, but the assassin escaped when she downed an invisibility potion and disappeared. The next morning they found a small pouch that was left behind with descriptions of the party members plus a symbol that the paladin was able to identify as the symbol for the Kraken Society. The party traveled on and after an uneventful day and another night on the road, came across a pair of frost giants attacking a small merchant caravan.

Amphail

After returning from Olthanas’s cloud castle, the party explored Waterdeep a bit. Began traveling towards Kryptgarden Forest. The journey was mostly uneventful though one evening it seemed that a shadowy figure lingered near the camp before continuing on down the road. Reached Amphail where there was a big party for Lord Roaringhorn. The smell of food attracted three hungry Hill Giants which the party fought off. The party commenced and a few party members got in trouble with the local constables for crooked gambling. They headed out towards Red Larch the following day.

Cloud Giants Bargain

Explored the rest of the castle. Fought a Helmed Horror and Rug of smothering. Spotted a white dragon lairing in one of the towers on the largest island and determined it was probably Olthanas’s pet. Found a magic ring in the map room along with more evidence of Majordomo Balakar’s duplicity. Headed to the main island and the audience chamber. Presented evidence of Balakar’s treachery at which point she activated a magical choker on Olthana’s neck which started to kill him, called the dragon to aid her, and attacked. Some party members worked on freeing Olthanas from the necklace while the rest fought Balakar. When the dragon showed up, it looked confused as Olthanas pleaded with it the best he could. Marco communicated with the dragon via his psuedodragon’s telepathic link and convinced it to turn on Majordomo Balakar. With the fall of the Majordomo, the necklace strangling Olthanas fell away from his neck.

Cloud Giants Bargain

Began exploring the Cloud giant castle. Discovered a dead cloud giant guard and determined he was poisoned. Found the kitchens and questioned the goblin servants. Fought and killed a pair of Hell hounds in the dining room and discovered a halberd of wounding and a sentinel shield. Found Majordomo Balkama’s office and found three empty vials of poison hidden in her desk. Tricked Olthanas’s grandfather (in the spa) into thinking they were Olthanas and determined that Olthanas was not a devout follower of Memnor (The Cloud giant god of deception and trickery). They were pretty sure The Majordomo was not on the up and up but decided to explore the other islands of the castle before heading to the meeting with Olthanas.

Waterdeep

Upon arriving at the city of Waterdeep, the party first visited the family home of Zi Liang from Goldenfields and delivered her amulet. The butler presented them with Zi’s inheritance, a pair of potions. They then met with Chazlauth Yarghorn, as urged by Naxene Drathkala, and discussed Naxene’s plan to enlist the aid of good aligned dragons to fight the giants. Chazlauth said this was a terrible idea, but that enlisting the aid of evil dragons could actually work. He suggested they seek out “Old Gnaw-Bone” in the Kryptgarden Forest as she was rumored to have a collection of crystal balls and other scrying devices which she uses to keep abreast of doings in the world. Shortly after this meeting, they were approached by a representative of Acquisitions, INC. who wanted to hire them to infiltrate a cloud giant castle headed for Waterdeep. The castle was under the control of Olthanas, the son of Count Stratovan, a notorious cloud giant that was apparently mounting an attack on the swordcoast near the city of Neverwinter. Acquisitions, INC recieved word from Olthanas’s Majordomo, Balkamar, that Olthanas was seeking peace with the small folk and Acquisitions, INC. wanted the party to infiltrate the castle and meet with Olthanas to determine his intentions. The party entered the flying castle by jumping from a gnome dirigible and then using a token to cast feather fall on themselves when they neared an outside castle garden.

Road to Waterdeep

While traveling along the road to Waterdeep, the party investigates strange noises coming from a ways off the road. They discover a group of orcs attacking what looks like a Treant stuck in an old tower. Next to the tower is a group of hafling prisoners. They attack and slay the orcs and manage to free the Treant from his tower prison. the haflings say the orcs attacked their homestead, looking for slaves to sell to the Giants. They ask if they’ll accompany them back home, which the party agrees to do. The halflings give the party a family heirloom, a broom of flying, as thanks for saving them.

Goldenfields

After Liferlas charged the invading force, the party was forced into combat to save the children of Goldenfields. Strog Thunderblade led a force outside the walls to engage the main force while the party fought alongside the enraged tree. They managed to win the day and end the threat to Goldenfields. A feast was held in the parties honor and many of the residents imparted gifts of information as a way of thanks. One of the people they fought alongside felt that the giant attacks were just beginning. She implored the party to travel to the city of Waterdeep and seek out a wizardly colleague of hers who was an expert on dragons. She felt that the dragons, ancient enemies of the giants, could be enlisted in the fight against them.

Goldenfields

The fight against the hill giants, Lob and Ogg was fierce. The party managed to kill Ogg, and Lob surrendered after being badly wounded. After questioning, Lob told them that “Get food for Guh”. They told him to leave and never come back, but Strog Thunderblade, captain of Goldenfields guards, showed up and ordered his men to shoot Lobb down.

After a much needed nights rest, they discovered that a number of goldenfields children had been kidnapped during the chaos of the night before, and soon a large force of Hill giants, goblins, bugbears, and ogres wearing strange catapult devices on their shoulders showed up just outside the walls. They demanded a giant cart of food or they would begin catapulting the children over the walls. After much discussion, a large cart of food was put together and the party accompanied it out of the main gate to make the exchange. However, Liferlas, the awakened tree who lived in Goldenfields, saw that some of the children were injured, flew into a rage, and charged.
