The group ventured through the maze like tunnels found back here. Small critters scampered across the cave walls, and the party dealt with minor enemies, such as slimes, with no issues.

When they saw torch light coming through a longer tunnel, they knew they reached the end. However, before they could reach this, a new foe stood before them. Gnomes, who had bloodsoaked red caps, and incredibly large scythes. The group had to maneuver around each other, but after a few brutal kicks to the ankles, they group put these nuisances to rest. Continuing through, they found a larger room. Vincent lead the group, and when he stepped into the room, he saw a kolbold on the other side of the room.

She had her spear readied, and immediately screamed at Vincent, "Finally! I've been itching for a fight! My name is Enga Keckvia, and you shall die!" She immediately began flinging rocks from her sling at Vincent, as the group piled into the room to try and get a hold on the situation. They endured the blows that the kolbold laid down, and after enough trading, the kolbold tried to retreat back into the caves. Naolexa froze her in her tracks, while Nevik and Vincent lined up to end her completely. They took what they could from her, which included a very dangerous necklace, which could have been used on the party.

Nevik took this moment to hand the staff that he found early to Philip. After analyzing it, Philip knew this was a powerful boon that he just gained. He immediately used the staff to move earth and seal the room completely so that the party may rest and relax. Many foes lay ahead of them, so caution must be taken within the caves.

As the sun rose over the valley, our Heroes stirred for the morning and sat around the campfire to get a game plan. They decided that Naolexa would take 3 others and dimension door over to the lower cave smelling of lizards. Nevik would do his best to read the other scroll and teleport himself and the remaining two present party members to the cave as well.

When they arrived, Yama immediately spotted a large gem shining in the sunlight, as it rested upon a pile of sand. The gem, almost as big as his head, immediately drew him in to try and retrieve it. The other members scoffed it off saying “You’ll get yourself killed doing stuff like that all the time. You remember the giant gecko cave?”, with Yama returning saying, “Yeah? And no-one died. It’s fine, I’ve got this.” He happily strolled right on up to the gem and almost got a hand on it, when he heard a hissing sound from throughout the cave. The other three areas of this cave acted as a resting ground for the wyverns, and Yama was attempting to abduct their favorite treasure.

As the fight broke out, Reiner grabbed his trusty sword and ran head-on towards the wyverns. After getting a clean blow into one of them, one of the wyverns managed to get a hold of him and sting him, injecting poison. This burned through his veins, but did not stop him from teleporting around the enemy and cleaving it in two.

Yama battled with another one of the wyverns, and after trading blows and help from Reiner, the second one collapsed. The final one approached Naolexa, but was failing to hit her at all. Nevik and Malia ended up joining the fight and struck the beast down.

The dust settled within the cave; the rogues were inspecting a bone pile that was poorly covering a chest, while the rest of the party tended to Reiner’s poison. Both were handled, but as they explored the cave, this seemed to be the end of this area. No hidden doors revealed to them. They then had to repeat the process of using the dimension door scroll and spell to get to the other cave; the one crawling with bugs.

As Naolexa got everyone up there, the party stood there for a moment, taking everything in. Naolexa, however, reacted quickly, and lobbed a fireball into the cave blindly. The impacted area did burn away some of the thick webs in the back of the cave, and plenty of the bugs that crawled all over the floor. However, in the screeching of the bugs, other noises came through that caught Yama’s, Reiner’s, and Nevik’s ears. Giant spiders crawled off the walls, blackened a bit by the fireball. Thinking quickly, the party wrapped up these three spiders with another fireball, a sling shot, and a few arrows. They collapsed, and fell apart, revealing that these giant spiders were completely made up of dead insect husks and shells.

Naolexa, looking over through the webs, noticed a secret door at the back portion of the cave and signaled Reiner and Yama over to help start clearing away the webs. After about 5 minutes of clearing, Reiner cleaned up the webs and made an open path to the door. The others found a pile of unfortunate adventurer’s previous weapons and armor. Valtyra scooped these up into her bag of holding, and the party started squeezing through the small tunnel found at the back of the spider cave. Reiner had a sneaking suspicion that this lead into Jorgenfist; He was about to find out if he was right.

Our Heroes could see the giants at the watch tower, roughly two hundred feet away. Near a bonfire that burned next to the tower, two giants were throwing material on to it, as smoke billowed up higher and higher. The party knew this was a smoke signal, and could easily tell that things going forward wouldn't be exactly easy.

Naolexa had the idea to cast a poisonous cloud of gas on the two lower giants, in attempts to whittle away at their health. As she casted, a rock came flying through the air almost instantly, crashing in Naolexa just as she finished the spell.

A barrage of rocks slew forth from the three giants, as one moved closer and closer to Naolexa. Nevik stuck to the mountain side, and got in close to the other giant. The tall giant ducked down into the tower after a bit, and emerged from the tower. She stabbed into Nevik , Vincent, and Valtyra easily, all the while the other giant slamming his great club all over the place.

Things looked grim for Nevik and Vincent. Naolexa managed to sleep one of the giants, while Valtyra had to focus her efforts on healing. Shalelu pelted her targets with arrows, but had a few mishaps with her bow. When all seemed bleak, when it seemed that Vincent would have to watch Nevik fall, and then see himself fall...

Reiner and Malia rushed in on the scene. Seeing the bloody mess not only near him but also where Nevik was, he knew what he had to do. Malia went over to the giant who lay sleeping, and performed a cooup de grace. Luckily, after a few death gurgles, the giant succumbed to his wounds.

Vincent thought fast, and rushed over to Nevik. Luckily, the giant was distracted and didn't take a swing at him. Quickly, he teleported back to where the other casters were. Valtyra now stood between the giants and the party, as Reiner rushed as quickly as he could into the fray. Faster than expected, Reiner cut down the other giant, and brought the lady giant to her knees. She attempted feebly to stab at Reiner, but was unable to hold her spear steady. Reiner cut her down and returned to his friends to make sure they were okay. They focused their efforts on healing, but knew that if this is what lay ahead, they could be in over their heads.

While Philip and Naolexa toiled over the loot, appraising it and determining the magic properties of them, Nevik climbed to the top of the tower. He was able to get a better look at the area, and an attempt to see what lay ahead for them. He could see that the camps that were visible near the ring of towers were a buzz with giants, and a lot of them. He spotted around forty ogres in one camp alone, while the next closest one had eleven stone giants.

He relayed this information, and the party knew that their only course of action was to rest somewhere secluded and make a plan. Philip took to the air and invisible, scouting over the mountain range to the south. He was able to find a small area that seemed safe from the trouble. He returned to the party, guided them there, and then took to the air again while the party set up camp. He flew around the area, sticking close to the river side. Luckily, he saw two cave entrances near the river. Flying near the entrance of one of them, it smelled of a reptilian stink. The other didn't smell, but was covered in darkness and webs. Knowing he wouldn't be able to deal with this on his own, he returned to camp and relayed the information.

For now, the best course was to stay here one more day and prepare themselves for the road ahead. There were going to be numerous tough fights ahead. They had to prepare themselves for the worst here, lest they be catching up to their death.

The plan was simple: simply dimension door up the steps, avoiding the climb entirely.

Valtyra, Philip, Naolexa, and Shalelu held together, as they instantly teleported right into the middle of the sihedron emblem that could still be seen promently on the ground. They quickly noticed that there were foes who awaited them here; hill giants. They quickly grabbed boulders and picked away at the group. The heroes ducked and weaved, only getting hit by a few of these, as they went to work. Naolexa lit the shambly hut aflame with a quick fireball, to smoke the two giants our of the home. Shalelu riddled them with arrows, knocking off one giant who stood on top of the statues behind them and slaying one that approached Valtyra.

Philip, using some of the pixie dust he acquired eariler, sprinkled his crossbow bolt with it and pelted one of the runaway giants who remained. Not knowing the effect, the pixie dust acted like a tranq dart, immediately lulling the creature to sleep. Naolexa, inspired by this, put the remaining one to sleep as well. They finished them off, put out the fire, and saw treasure inside.

A formidable amount of stuff was kept here, likely from those whom the giants killed for. Most notable was a bladed scarf, and a ornate crown. THey divvied up the loot, and carried forth. They made base for the night after making into the area a bit.

They encountered a scouting party during their travels, but managed to hide away in a trench created by Philip and waited for them to pass. Philip caught a little bit of what the giants were talking of, but most of general scout chatter. After 10 minutes, they exited the trench, and continued on their way.

They rounded the corner of a mountain, and there stood before them a large watch tower. Beyond it, a small fortress. Numerous towers line the walls, and in the center of it all, a incrediby large black tower. The round fortress was also encompianed by camps all around it.

It seems as if Jorgenfist has been found.

The heroes encountered an unexpected night of events during their stay in Ravenmoor. Reiner and Yama protected the town from rabid dire wolves, Nevik saved Naolexa's life from a crazed demon lord worshipper, Dov battled with dragons, all while Shalelu, Malia, Valtyra, Vincent, and Philip enjoyed a quiet evening and day of rest at the inn. They even met up with Maester Grump, who some of the heroes ran into in Sandpoint a while back. He helped the heroes reveal the mystery of their newly found egg; an axebeak would soon hatch from this.

Revitalized and excited for their journey, the group left Ravenmoor to the north east. They ventured closer and closer to the Storval Stairs, but on their journey, heard a unexpected noise: panicked moo-ing. A group of ogres were traveling through the area, each with a cow slung of their shoulder, still alive and frighting for freedom. The heroes intervened with the beasts, saving a few of the cows in the process. One ogre got away, but not before Shalelu got an arrow or two in it.

The finally made it to the bottom of the Storval Stairs. A incredibly large incline awaited them, and the only way up was to climb the steps.
