The Meet and Greet
Adventure 12: NOISOME NEIGHBORS- the Meet & Greet
Nunda, 9th to 12th
While Voice of the Docks RODJURSHAL works on Slip Knox’S idea of the seal-hunting boats and VOICE OF THE BUILDERS works on Warhol’S housing blocks, the party is sent again to the main land to deal with the potential threat of giants. After spending a day provisioning, the party is taken by boat (along with Banalux and Arc9’ight) to the shore and dropped off where Vladex recommends. Phoc’Xi rushes off into the woods and is gone for several days. Vladexquickly finds a giant trail and the party sets off following it. Late in that day, a group of 4 hill giants coming the other way is surprised by the party and—after a challenging battle—they are slain. After resting, the party resumes following the much clearer trail. Another trail, something huge that slithers, crosses the giants’ trail and—disturbingly—it is trying to hide its tracks. The party backtracks this 2nd trail and finds a cave with a huge sleeping behir, which they summarily dispense with strong tactics and the advantage of surprise. Banaluxis swallowed whole but manages to cut his way out. Resting again, the party finds the giant camp the next day: a huge building made of thick logs with a thatch-and-timber roof. A single tower guards the entrance on the south side and a quick reconnaissance reveals that the giants are partying pretty hardily. The party retreats to consider its options. Phoc’Xi returns from his wilderness romp in time to rejoin the party.
