We’re talking to some giants
“Why does Guh need food?”
“Guh want be biggER”
Both the giants are Guh’s husbands; Ammon (The all-father, giant god) went away (it’s not clear where), Ammon might be mad;
We get the giants to promise not to come back and then let then them go, but first we exchange for them a mirror (courtesy Naxine, the caster lady) that Nitta has cast a tracker on.
We open the smelly sacks. We find:
A mangy fur pelt
a ten foot long hempen rope tied to a rowboat anchor (Lily immediate ties this to her back)
a 50 foot hemp rope
a small wooden box full of exquisitely crafted turquoise animal figurines (w. 250g)
a large, well-made tapestry (w. 250g)
a giant-sized bone comb
a 5-foot length of chain
a small idol made of gold – in the shape of Ammon (w. 750 g)
a normal sized “potion of acid resistance” (gives acid resistance 1 hr.)
We learn from Naxine that
a) there’s been more giant sightings that she didn’t believe
b) she asks us to tell a friend of hers in Corlan (a dragon expert) named Chazlauth Yarghorn who she wants us to tell about this and ask for help. She also tells us where he lives (in a tall stone house with a tower) She thinks that he could get some good dragons to help us
Xi Liang also steps forward, hearing that we’re headed back to Corlan.
She thanks us for helping (and believing me – side eyes Naxine) and then pulls out a necklace from under her shirt – it has a black pearl pendant. She hands it to Karina, and asks us to visit house Thann. (and presumably give him that)
Lily remembers playing with a boy named Colin from House Thann. Colin was a dick.
We decide that we’re gonna follow the giants. While we’re packing up, Orin hands Braith a letter and asks him to take it to his sister Lily in Daggerford who works at the Happy Cow Tavern. Braith agrees.
After we are packed up and get down into the main tavern room, Miros stops us, and tells us to go the StagHorned Flagon in Amphail (it’s between here and Corlan) and give us his regards to the proprietor Arliosa Starhenge.
On the way out the door we’re stopped by the Shepherd Shalvis. He asks where we’re going and mentions that he was looking for some protection. Then he name drops David Bowie (except never actually says his name) and asks for an escort to the Bargeright Inn.
We tell him that we’ll be back in Goldenfield after we find the Giants and we’ll take him with us from there.
On our way out the door, we run into the big tree, who thanks us for helping save the children.
He says we remind him of a friend he had, Erglas (the elf). Erglas used to fight giants! He left 30 years ago, and went to Shadowtop Cathedral? He was looking for a Treeant named Turlang. He suggests we go looking for those two.
They’re moving erratically and… towards Corlan. We figure that they might be lost, so we go catch up with them and ask them if they’re lost.
They are, but they don’t know it..
We drill them as much as possible to try to get them on the right track towards their home. We learn there are stone ruins by a lake. Or maybe they built stone buildings? With Hobgoblins.
We get frustrated and go back to Goldenfields.
We pick up Shelvis and decide to take him to his place, BargeRight Inn. It’s the farthest away, but /~o~
