Storm King's Thunder
The party has reached level 2! The heroes continue to explore the river village of Nightstone, which has been abandoned by most of it’s populace following a giant attack. The giants have left already however, and the party arrived to find the town being gleefully raided by goblins, who appeared to be scavenging the village in the wake of the giant’s destruction. The party consists of Brother Bottom the Halfling Monk, Elo the Eladrin Fighter, and Tommin the Gnome Wizard. Read on below for more details.
The Story So Far…
The heroes are about to embark on a great adventure that pits heroes against giants bent on reshaping the world. This adventure begins on the road to Nightstone, a village in a region known as the Savage Frontier, in the northwest corner of the continent of Faerûn.
The Savage Frontier is a cold, rugged, sparsely populated land of snow-capped mountains, rocky hills, sprawling forests, and foggy vales. Isolated strongholds, ancient burial mounds, and the ruins of many forgotten empires dot this vast landscape. Bounded by the Sea of Swords to the west and the desert of Anauroch to the east, the Savage Frontier extends as far north as Icewind Dale and as far south as the town of Daggerford. Old roads stretch across this great expanse, linking the dwarven strongholds and mines in the mountains to the coastal settlements, frontier towns, and fortified outposts of humans and other folk. These roads are long, lonely, or poorly defended, making them dangerous to traverse. In fertile valleys, towns and cities have sprung up, separated by dozens if not hundreds of miles of untamed wilderness haunted by bandits, barbarians, and monsters.
The heroes come to Nightstone for reasons each their own, but what they discover there sets them on a path that will determine the very fate of the northlands, if not all of Faerun!
