The party has decided to visit the green dragon Old Gnawbone in the Krypt Garden Forest. This trip will take several days, if not weeks. The party bought some supplies – Braith bought a new tent.
They are tagging along with a caravan heading to Everland, taking our own wagon with.
The trip is very uneventful for the first few days. Braith spends his nights spreading his “half bushel” of seed. By the fourth day the group is far outside of civilized lands, and is approaching the frontier. They pass another caravan heading the opposite way – towards Corlan.
On passing, the party finds out that the other caravan is made up of refugees – they are fleeing their lands (a small village in the area) after Giants destroyed their homes. The Giants did not kill any people or livestock, just destroyed their homes, forcing them to flee to Corlan.
Braith offered them free stay at the Tickling Cricket, a little girl gave her a crappy straw doll as thanks. Boy kids are stupid.
The group reaches Everland in three more days. It is a frontier town with a population of about 1000 people. It is surrounded by walls and has a river running though it. Outside the walls are some fields. This is the last bastion of civilization before the frontier. Some features of the town include the town guards, shops, and inn, a wizard’s tower with members of the academy.
The group decides to stay at The Ladybug Inn, for the night. Braith jams all night. The next day they leave town, heading north towards the Krypt Garden Forest. They had to leave their wagon behind as there are no more roads. Moving across the grassland, it will take another ten days to reach their destination.
The adventurers are traveling across the hills when they hear a rumbling coming from beyond the hill ahead. Braith recognizes the sound as Stone Giants. The party all hides (Fenngar uses Invisibility) just before the Giants come over the hill. The two Stone Giants do not notice the group and continue on their way, perhaps towards Everland. It is estimated they’ll reach the town within two days (they are faster than the party).
Fenngar uses druidcraft to create the scent of a sexy Giantess. The Giants get confused when they don’t find a sexy Giantess. Fenngar, acting quickly, made the smell of a delicious pig roast. This time the trick worked and the Giants went wandering off in search of the smell. And so, Fenngar saved the town of Everland. Or at least distracted the Giants for 15-20 minutes.
The party keeps heading north then camps for the night. Karina uses Sending and communicates with Ry’ghk (pronounced: Rick), the leader the caravan they traveled to Everland with. The message Karina sends is:
“Hey! Ry’ghk! It’s Karina. We are three days north of Everland. We saw two Stone Giants heading to Everland with old columns for weapons. We have delayed them slightly, but prepare for them.”
“Thanks for the warning, will tell guards.”
The group traveled for several more days and finally reached the Krypt Garden Forest. This forest is a pretty small wooded area. Plants do not grow as well this far north, the forest is mostly evergreens. They enter the forest and wander for about 30 minutes. Soon the party notices the lack of any woodland creatures. Braith has a sit. When asked why, he says its creepy. Before Braith has a chance to get up, they all hear something enormous moving through the trees. A massive Green Dragon makes its way into the clearing where the group is sitting. In her mouth is the corpse of a mist elf barbarian. Green mist is floating around its mouth. Braith starts playing dueling banjos.
The dragon speaks and says “Do you always play music when you are nervous?”
DAGRON: “Welcome to my home. I’ve been expecting you.”
Fenngar: “Chazloth Yarghorn sent us here.”
DAGRON: “Yes, I know, he has a terrible name. I am wise and know all that occurs in this land.”
Karina casts magical xanax on everyone so they can chill the fuck out.
Karina: “So you know about the giants”
DAGRON: “Yes. I know. They are a nuisance and will continue to be a problem. I will not deal with them, but I can help push you in the right direction.”
DAGRON: “Seek the Valley of Khhedrun and search for a Giant temple called the Eye of the All Father. Therein you will find your answers. Also. There is…. someone out there who will provide you with some help. He is a giant himself – a frost giant. He is…. not friendly with other giants. You will know him by his helm made from the skull of a white dragon. If you wish to seek him, I would look into that ring of yours (the magic adventure ring)”
Lily: “Hey do you know what was up with my parents?”
DAGRON: “Oh yes they were stupid”
Someone: “WHAT ABOUT THE MONSTER THAT FENNGAR IS LOOKIN FOR”
DAGRON: “What do you want to know about this thing?”
Lily: “where is it and can we stop it?”
DAGRON: “Your friend should know about it (looks at fenngar). Should you wish to seek out this creature go west, into a vast forest. This is its domain.”
The party leaves the woods quickly with their new information. Fenngar recalls that the Valley of Khedrun is to the northwest of their current location. Far to the northwest, it would take perhaps a month to travel there. No one has been their but know it by name. It is far inland, in the mountains.
Not sure where to go next, the party decides to use the ring to search for the Frost Giant. Lily whispers “Keldar Dardragon” into the ring and it activates. lightning strikes the ground and an apparition of a halfling appears.
HALFY: "I am Keldar Dardragon and it seems that you all wish to go on an adventure. If you wish to go, affirm “Yes”.
The party says yes.
HALFY: “Great. You have agreed to our safety waivers. Now lets go on an adventure!”
He points and a portal appears.
The party goes into the portal and it snaps shut.
HALFY: “Welcome to Dardragon’s Fungeon!”
There is a door. It is about 9" tall 4" wide. One half of the door has elaborate elven runes along the side of it. And the other half is broken and on the ground.
HALFY: “This is your first challenge, you must must say that you are a friend before you may enter.”
Braith: “Friend” the other side of the door falls off. cuz its broke.
