The child who had his memory returned to him and was sent to Neverwinter where a message from Prim Pressleaf reached droop. The message read a request that he bring the child to Luskan. Droop looking for ways to prove his bravery accepted the task and rounded up some of his friends along the way.
Erelosa begged him to come along and droop agreed as long as they could get others. He asked around and was able to get Sildar Hallwinter and Zem slatedust from Phandalin to come on their adventure. Sildar and Zem brought Duchess the wolf along for the trip and Droop also brought his luck dragon and they set off on a road for Luskan.
The trip went smoothly until rain started to pour and they came across a bridge guarded by goblins and trolls. They demanded they empty their pockets and stated they needed to search all traveler’s for something called the ring of winter. The party wasn’t about to give up their valuables and a fight broke out. Silder and Zem took out 2 of the goblins and even erelosa was able to fight one off with her rapier seeing her 1st combat she stuck close to droop and sildar as she fought and inspired her companions. Duchess charged the trolls and tried to bite into them knocking one to the ground tearing into it by getting clawed by the other knocking him unconscious.
Lorayln rushed to duchess’s side and petted him casting cure wounds to seal where he was gushing blood. A rumble to the earth could be felt as a frost giant emerged from the trees demanding the party give up and relinquish their belongings. Erelosa in a panic took out her flute and called to Zira for help.
Being pulled away from Ironslag Zira appeared in the field across the bridge from the party and saw the frost giant making its way across the bridge towards the group. Even though she was heavily wounded she took flight and unleashed her lightning breath upon the frost giant as he crossed the bridge slowing it down. Droop used hypnotic pattern to stun a troll and Zira swooped in and grabbed it by the neck picked it up into the air and decapitated it on a fly by.
The party set upon the 2nd troll with Droop cutting it down. By this time the giant made its way across the bridge and was making a straight line for erelosa when sildar and dutchess jumped in front of it absorbing 2 mighty axe blows cutting duchess deeply and put him out of the action. Zira swooped around and beat her wings and with a mighty gust took the giant off of his feet and then landed biting and clawing at its neck.
While the frost giant was distracted droop ran in between the giant and the dragon yelling “DROOP IS BRAVE!” and stuck the frost giant in a vital area from behind slaying it sending it toppling off of the bridge to the water below. The party gathered themselves and stabilized duchess and attempted to patch up Zira before continuing north. Zira felt some of her wounds from the vonindod couldn’t truly be healed with conventional healing but she was well enough to go seek help and she set off after making sure the party was safe.
Back in Ironslag the party gathered themselves and hearing commotion throughout ironslag after finishing off the vonindod decided they needed to leave before anything else showed up and to take the slaves with them to free them. They ran up a nearby set of stairs and came across more dwarves trapped in cages guarded by hobgoblins. They got the jump on them and quickly dispatched the guards and freed the remaining captives.
They worked their way backwards out of iron slag hearing infighting between the yakfolk and the remaining fire giants as they left managing to avoid the bulk of the group. they entered the mines and collected the dwarves from the mansion and told them to flee down the mountain and keep running back to where they came from as their airship could not hold them all and the Apparatus of Kawalsh that prim procured from ironslag. The party noticed the Yakfolk village was empty and figured that they must all be down in ironslag hashing out recent events with the fire giants. the party quickly debated torching the village but their airship arrived and they decided to leave with haste and sent the prisoners down the mountain as they took off.
Captain Laz was surprised to see the giant apparatus on his ship but with yue’s help they had more lift to the balloon to carry all the extra weight brought on board and the party set out for 2 days to reach the eye of the Allfather.
The party found the normal entrance to be collapsed in so they searched for and found the secret entrance spoken of by Zephyros before his message was cut off. They explored the tunnels. The party split in 2 both running into traps but Draven and Caryandra ran into a group of ice spiders. With a resounding “EEP” Caryandra climbed up on draven’s shoulders and stabbed one waggling celery wildly carving it apart flinging its spider guts everywhere. Draven blew 2 of them apart just in time for pokeman jones to round the corner and crush the final one and reunite the party.
After exploring the tunnels the party found themselves in a great hallway with a statue of a stone giant at one end. Caryandra noticed that some tiles looked different and Norros went to inspect it instructing everyone to go back by the statue in case it was a trap so it only hit him. As the party approached the end of the room norros activated the tiles causing the stone statue to drop its hibernation and it swung its greatclub at the party smashing rowan and pokeman jones. The party did battle with the stone giant ending with rowan shattering it with a harm spell.
As the eye of the allfather grew quiet once more the party found their way back to the main hall with all 6 statues in it but the portal was closed. They saw that each of the statues had weapons except the frost giant statue. They searched the rubble upstairs for any sign of Zephyros or Harshnag and they found a bag of giant goods including a owlbear plushie which Draven and Caryandra argued over but she eventually won it from him with her persuasiveness. Upon inspecting the rubble they also found Harshnag’s axe. it was such a large weapon it took the entire party to bring it back to the main chamber. Rowan scryed on it to try to determine their location but could not confirm their existence at all as the spell found no purchase. and so they were left wondering what happened here.
Norros and Draven worked on the idea to put the axe into the frost giant’s hands and Norros rigged up a pulley system to raise it up that high. Upon placing it into the hands of the statue the portal to the oracle reactivated and the party entered the oracle’s chamber. Eigeron’s spirit greeted them and upon asked what happened here he told them that the Doom of the desert Lymrith arrived seeking the oracles power and Zephyros and Harshnag tried to prevent her from having it closing the portal and them he heard part of the temple collapsing but couldn’t tell them any more about what had happened as he was sealed off. But he suggested that if they were successful in their journey to seek the oracle’s advice on what to do next.
As he spoke the six lights of the oracle began to glow awaiting the inquiries of the party.
