Giantslayer - Critical Fail

From the GM - Events up to now 1.3

Book 1 Done!

  As the terror of the orcish assault on Trunau rages on, the rag-tag band of adventurers slug their way through a plethora of enemies, in order to light the remaining beacons and signal those outside the walls. No matter the obstacles, one by one the bonfires were kindled. 

  In addition to the waves of the Twisted Nail tribe encountered on the treacherous trek through the town, the team encountered a male human accompanied by half-orc woman, Urnsul, in an alley. While there is some suspicion as to her loyalties, she heads out of site before the party can question her further, and before they locate a recently deceased merchant at the end of said alley. After she later joins in against the party in a fearsome fight with a cave giant and his "handlers", our soon to be heroes quickly agree they don't care for her much. While the newly dubbed "Giantslayers" were victorious, the badly wounded Urnsul manages to slip away yet again.

  After a not-so-brief respite in the burnt and shattered remains of Clamor, the 'slayers head into a newly excavated cave entrance. Inside, after eradicating some local fauna, they run face to face with the half-orc Skreed and his wolf pack. Pulling a note from his still-warm corpse, a note from Grenseldek ( self-titled "Glorious Chieftain of the Twisted Hearts") plainly states that Skreed is to locate a hammer and rock of Uskroth. Both are quickly found on the body of a very large skeleton in the middle of the room, surrounded by a bevy of smaller bones. Upon closer inspection of the rock, the geode appears to actually be one half of a map of the Mindspun Mountains and a trail to the "Giantkiller's Tomb".

  Laden with victory spoils, the party heads back towards the exit of the cave. Who or what will be awaiting them on the other side?
