The party teleports at first light to the town of Sand Point which the stone giant in the under ground said would be a target of a stone giant raiding party. He indicated it would take place within 2 to 3 days.
As the sun rises the party crosses Tanner’s bridge and alerts the guards that there is an impending giant raid and that they need to speak with the sheriff. As one guard goes quickly to tell the sheriff, the other guard starts asking questions about the raiding party.
Not more than a minute or two of talking with him, then a large crack is heard across the town. A large boulder has smashed into the north wall. Thus begins the fight. The north gate is being assailed by 3 stone throwing giants. The party moves quickly north and then screams and shouts alert that another pair of giants has crossed Tanners bridge and start to loot and round up prisoners. Part of the party continues north, the rest turn back to engage them. After fierce combat one giant is down and the other one is caught with a bear and killed.
Three stone giants in the area of the southern bridge start throwing rocks to demolish buildings and help with the giants already across.
A dragon then appears from the north and goes after the Sand Point garrison and breaths flames on it.
Two more giants appear across the south bridge and start to tear apart a brewery. Another giant takes off into the town cause residents to fell and scatter before him. Alik and Hellrin take on the prisoner toting giant and kill him and bears with help from Bolthin. Noden and Cyrus help defend the gate.
Arer takes off after the giant that is running through the town. Being under attack from many areas the defenders cower at the north gate and offer no other resistance.
The dragon sets sight on the cathedral and alights and manages to set it on fire. Bolthin tries to distract it.
The 3 giants from the north finally demolish the gate and towers and move in to attack. The giants to the south along with bears are all finally dispatched.
Arer fires off spells against the running giant which in turn flings wagons, chimneys and rocks back at Arer and wounds him.
The dragon ignores Bolthin’s taunts and lands on the colorful theater and sets it on fire. The prisoners from the giants that had crossed the bridges are all freed and go to help with bucket brigades to hold the fire in check.
Alik and Hellrin set off to go after the dragon which is now heading south to the docks. Further beyond the town and large plume of smoke is seen rising.
Arer corners the running giant in the ruined light house. The giant tries to attack Arer but fails to inflict any serious damage. Alik and Hellrin engage the dragon in melee and each inflict damage on each other.
Bolthin moves up to the north gate to help Nodem and Cyrus defend against the 3 giants. Uses a stone wall to cover the damaged breach.
A war horn blast is heard throughout the town and the dragon takes flight and heads north. He did manage to set some of the docks on fire and skirmished with Alik and Hellrin.
Alik and Hellrin see some giants moving back east with wagons of looted items but decide to go after the dragon. Alik takes flight on his Pegasus and Hellrin has to take a round to recoup. Arer flies back to Bolthin for healing and possibly help defend the north gate.
At the north gate 2 of the 3 giants are killed with a third heavily wounded. The running giant appears and tries to run past Bolthin which manages to land a killing blow. The dragon sees the giant goes down and flies on past heading north at top speed. Two giants that were tossing boulders, put down their weapons and flee.
After the battle the wounded giants offers to surrender and the remaining 5 giants scatter into the woods. The dragon is no where to be seen. The town’s priority is to put out the fires and restore order. The sheriff thanks the PCs and goes to rouse the citizens to do so.
The PCs gather around the wounded giant. He squints up at the PCs, frowns and then chuckles to itself. “Defeated by nosy little dwarves, humans and elves” it says.
“Never thought this would happen to the Plateau People. Well, I won’t tell you everything, but I will tell you this: My lord is mighty Mokmurian, one of the dark giants of old come again..His magic, the things he has made… He has convinced the tribes that they will rule all the lowlands again, down to the sea. He has mastered the ancient arts.
“He will certainly kill you all, run rough over your tiny homes with the army he has called. The fortunate few will become his slaves. You beat us today, but you won’t beat us when there are a hundred or a thousand of the true people marching together. Lord Mokmurian will make it happen. He’s almost a smooth a talker as you are little one.”
He scratches his nose. “Teraktinus – he was the leader of our scouting party. He convinced us that you’d be easy pickings and we’d all get rich. He obviously underestimated you and he paid for his mistake. i have no interest in paying for that mistake as well. – grant me safe passage out of your lands and I will tell you everything you wish to know.”
Battle of Sand Point : 8 dead stone giants, 3 dead dire bears, 5 routed giants and one dragon driven off.
5 soldiers died. 18 citizens but no prisoners were taken by the giants.
The 3 that took off are easily tracked down (using wagons slows down anyone) and it is loot from the burned manor on the south shore. The ruling family will thank the party and provide a reward.
When the party goes to look for the 3 giants, they find the wagons abandoned and it seems that the stone giants left the wagons in haste. As the party scouts the area a huge shadow passes overhead and then the ground violently shakes – A colossal red dragon lands directly by the group and scoops up Alik and says – “I likessss paladindnssss for a sssnack.” Then tilts her head and in deep dragon voice says to the party “my blood, longtooth, will not die. You may punish him for allaying with stone giants, but you will not slay him. Otherwise you will have Durtaxsteingakila to deal with.” She then drops Alik and laughs and flies off.
if the party agrees to lead the stone giant out of the area he will answer other questions the PC have.
