“My Name Kardoblag, not giant. Good, then you go look for ring...”

You could also lift me up and I can take a look around for you if you would like, after all, it is difficult to see such a .... wondrous item from way down here....”
He then looks at the giant again and then the others “You need not worry giant, there are several of us here that are WILLING to assist you finding your ring. In fact, they are looking for it now, that is why they are sneaking around”
Just then there's a call from Ryiad.“
Hey, over here!
Ryiad's pointing into the tree at something out of his reach. “
I think you hung it on a limb up there!
Kardoblag stumbles over to Ryiad and spreads the tree open, snapping a number of branches in the process. “Ah! This is it.”
Kardoblag shows you the ring, in all its morbid glory. A twisted collection of human and human-like hands. Some seem to possibly even be elven, slender and delicate. He slides the "ring" back on his finder and smiles. “Eama never know now.”
Kardoblag pats Ryiad on the head, knocking him to the ground. Ryiad rubs his head, thankful that was just a pat.“Yeah, well... You're welcome Kardoblag.”
Ryiad says still on the ground. The giant smiles that inebriated smile that only a drunk can give. “Okay, I not to eat you. Though Eama would be sure to not make beatings if I bring one or two with me. I go now.”
You all watch as Kardoblag tramples through the forest, knocking down a few small trees in his path. As he leaves, you notice a small sack fall from his hip. When he's gone, you open it and find inside, the head, torso, and leg of an ogre, three large stones, and underneath all this, thick with drying ogre blood, one hundred eighteen gold coins. You're quick to divide the coins after cleaning them off, and leave the remaining contents for the animals. Ryker makes sure to be the first to tear off a chunk of thigh meat as you all leave, chewing it down as he trots along beside Locutus.
It's maybe an hour later that you find the remains of the ogres the giant must have been talking about. The site's a complete mess with body parts everywhere. You make haste out of there as fast as you can.
Well done. Kardoblag would have surely been the end of this game had any one of you tried to attack him. I think he has more HP than all of you combined. LOL
Okay. There was a problem with the XP tracker in the DM Sheet that has now been fixed, but when I did the update, I lost all previous RP XP. So, I'm starting like this:
Experience RewardThat is what you had coming into this encounter. For this encounter everyone gets 533 XP. Illixian gets an additional 198 XP for diplomacy. This should now have Illixian at 1531 and the rest of you at 1580.
- Collin 1047
- Delastian 1047
- Drini 1047
- Illixian 800
- Locutus 1047
- Ryiad 1047
From now on after each encounter I will post your XP Awards so you have a running count instead of waiting for me to tel you when it's time to level.
After narrowly avoiding sure death with that giant, you continue on. Here and there the forest opens up, but mostly the journey is difficult with you having to follow trails left by animals. Locutus has done well to get you through the hardest part of it. Soon you reach a darker point in the forest. All of you but Locutus hear the sweetest voice that could have ever hit your ears. Her voice is just so lovely and beautiful, that all you desire is to get closer. You see that there are already four lumberjacks here, also captivated by the lovely voice and melody.
For Locutus though, the sounds he hears are nothing more than squeaks, squeals, shrieks, and Shrills. He notes that the sound is coming from a tree just ahead and can see something, with a tail and wings, perched up there. Everyone's heard the stories of harpies and their foul and captivating songs. He assumes this can be nothing more than just that. How can he break this enchantment though?
