The caravan left the heights of the spine of the world and followed the path into the Giant Downs. Named so for the ‘oversized ruins’, the remains of some Giant civilization.
Ulf advised the party not to disturb the ruins to avoid angering the ghosts of the Giants. Sandru immediately set about surreptitiously looting the ruins of valuable giant artifacts.
The ruins were tricky to navigate with such a large caravan, and quickly the lead caravan got stuck. The party couldn’t decide between breaking down the caravan and breaking down the ruins.
A ghostly voice warned the party to turn back and leave the ruins.
Traftar transformed into a bird to scout ahead. Shaelau did the same on foot. They encountered a raven, which flew off, but not before causing an earthquake, that destroyed may of the ancient buildings. The earthquake turned out to be an earth elemental.
The ghostly voice turned into a roar of outrage and an angry Frost Giant and his pet winter wolf came changing out of the snow.
The battle that ensued was deadly. Shalelu Andosana narrowly avoided death twice, once she was rescued by Youxain [1 heropoint used] and then being frozen to death by the winterwolf [2 heropoints used].
However, the grace of the Amatasu Seal was able to return the essential guide to life. However, its powerful magic is now completely drained.
- Shalelu used 2 heropoints to avoid death
