Incidents

Session 8-3

Madness on a Giant scale

With a path to a way out of the darkness you started your investigation. Failing to capture the most fabulous of Derro, Droki, you learnt that he runs errands delivering items to some of the duergar merchants. And that he comes and goes from Lauduger's furrow, the large cleft dividing Gracklstugh into two parts and is the ghetto like residence for the Derro. Making your way towards the furrow you ran into, or it ran into you, a two-headed completely mad giant. You did manage to fell it but not before the fall of Kerra Eisir. When the Giant laid still on the ground, so did she and her shiny gem was nowhere to be found. Fashionably late, the leader of the giants in Gracklstugh, stonespeaker Hgraam, arrived at the scene along with some Duergar soldiers. Sad that his kin laid slain he offered to ask the stone to bring Kerra back, the least he could do. A short walk later you entered the Caingorn Cavern, the home of the giants in Gracklstugh, and Kerra was lain on a stone altar. Gathering around the small enclave of giants joined Hgraam's ritual to bring Kerra back.

Session 9-1

Still movements

In Caingorn cavern, the domain of the stone giants in Gracklstugh, stonespeeker hgraam began the ritual to bring your companion Kerra back to life. As it goes on the whole cavern appears to shake, the strange mist you encountered before softly change colours and Hgraam doing all he can to bring har back. Almost fainting from the exhausting ritual Hgraam is forced to abandon the efforts to being her back, "The stone is not responding, shaking and is restless". Offering to care for her remains you leave, mourning the loss of yet another companion. Outside the cavern a simply yet well-dressed Duergar, Hemeth who guided you to Gracklstugh, calls upon your attention in this time of grief bringing a message that his employer Saltbaron is waiting for you in your quarts at the Ghohlbron's lair.

Session 10-2

A trap!

Following the crack Drocki ran away from you in, you before long emerged in a larger cavern. Hiding in the fungi patch at the crack you saw Droki handing over some items to the Derro savant in the cavern before heading away again. Catching a glimpse you spotted a ritual of some kind on a terrace. Deciding that they were not who you were looking for you decided to try and sneak past, but were heard. With the Derro cultists and their pets coming after you it was time to bolt, and Dag bolted straight into a pittrap. Once you got him up the cultist were on you. Spells slung, friendly fireballs exchanged and the Derro savant roasting Prince Derendil with a mighty lightning bolt.

Session 10-3

Twice incriminated

With the Derro cultists slain and Prince Derendil as well you took a look at what the cultists were up to. In the centre of the ritual you saw a small statue resembling a giant with a clay extra head attached. You also found a small box, the same box Droki had on him before, with some giant hairs and toenail clippings. And the most incriminating of all, a small journal with a paper listing all the giants in the Cairngorn Cavern. Looking further through the journal, apart from arcane schematics, you found what resembled an inventory ledger and with how and what payed with. Several occasions of surface coins which "appeared out of thin air at the obelisk", and that the obelisk were taken over by the Duergar. Well tested you decided to for now head out of the Whorlstone tunnels and to report some of your findings. Telling Stonespeaker Hgraam about the Derro cultists and their rituals made the normally calm and cautions giant burst into rage. After rewarding you he called his entourage to gather, he had some words to give to the Duergar king.
