I don't. The fiend is a prideful idiot.

Why you may ask?

Under the Golden Rules of conjuring magics, when
Slain the creature will reform on its home plane after a day.
And, would not be able to be resummoned for a time.

Yet, due to his pride he can not let go of his foothold
On our mortal plane.

If he would allow this dam to kill him, he would go home.

We investigate the swamp near Turtleback. The swamp has seemingly been corrupted by a dark fey nature magic.

** Cross-reference... Fey ties to nature. Can the state of the souls corrupt the environment?

In summary, the swamp dryads have been attacked by ogres. Many of these beautiful peaceful creatures were slain. Luckily, a pixie lead us to his mistress who was the source of the corruption.

This fey, (a nymph) had been the lover of the Fort Ranack's 'Commander Lamater'. She dies of a broken heart at the news of his death. BUT, returns a ghost!
After a bit of negotiation, she relents her threats to doom the world with hostel swamp takeover if we return the body of her lover....
Commander Lamater..... which is being held by the ogres of 'Hook Mountain'.

To HOOK Moutian


Winter has come to Hook Moutian. Here on the the strong survive. The climb is brutal.....

** Cross-reference..... the joys of the spell: Overland Flight ***

After a day climb up a well hidden game trail, we arrive at the ogres cave.

the cave has a moderate amount of guard.... we eliminate them.

On entering, we see a statue of a Rune Giant. Im certain that is is some ancient warlord....... BUT I can't quiet place the name, most likely he is the founder or great leader of this clan.... I don't think anyone has seen a living example of a Rune Giant in 5,000 years...



A quick Detect Magic reveals that it wears a shederion medalion (a very large one), we take it. The statue crumbles.... on further inspection it was actually a preserved Rune Giant.....

In proceeding room we, defeat a team of ogres working a forge. Two Hags, and spare one because she provides us with information of the remaining complex.
With the hag's information we lay the Fort Rannic commander to rest. (he had be converted to an ICE WRIGHT)

** cross reference types of undead **

The lord of Hook Mountain was a spell caster of some sort, he was guarded by 3 other stone giants.

We ended them.

a note was found...

It seems we should make all haste to Sandpoint.

The party returns to the base camp outside Turtle Back.
Madro completes business with Velvet for some magic items.

But, Most importantly Davos raises Sunshi.



After he awakes, he requests ............. a "strong Saki" .

After reading the "Barl" letter, we decide to Teleport to Sandpoint to head off the impending invasion.

Upon reaching Sandpoint, the party asks to meet with the Sheriff, Mayor, and head priest to report what they know. We'll in the Rusty Dragon.




We do not know when the invasion will take place, but we prepare for it.

With the of Sandpoint authorities notified, I draft a letter to Magnamar to inform them of the impending attack on Sandpoint by giants. While this letter may not reach them in time, I strongly suggest that send aid.

Our party is placed mostly in-charge of the cities defenses.

We set-up a scouting perimeter. On the eve of the 3rd day after we return to Sandpoint, Mardo, Evanoria and Lady find the giants gathering. The Stone giants attack the next morning as the sun rises.

The attack begins with a rock striking the North Gate.

Our party responds with arrows and spells. 3 of the 4 giants are eliminated.... when Lady, stationed a Turner's Bridge informs me

Lady wrote:
WE ARE UNDER ATTACK!
THEY ARE HERE!
BOSS!
COME!
GIANTS~!
BEARS!


After informing the party I head toward Lady.... (and catch 2 rocks on the way..).. I respond with an improved invisibility.

Sunshi uses a dimension door scroll (i wonder how he does that..) to head toward Turner's Bridge.

Evanora, much like fellow spellslinger Balefire, felt the sting of the boulders hurled by the Stone Giants at the North Gate. As Balefire starts moving South toward more incoming Stone Giants (with bear companions) the entire city shakes with the roar from something above... Things have gotten MUCH more complicated.

Time to head south and deal with the next threat, but before leaving the wall Evanora comes up with her next move to deal with the new threats....maybe a companion of her own?

Sunshi makes it to Turner's Bridge first followed by Mardo. It is quite amazing the fighting synergy these two warriors have when working together.
Their technique was to trip the giants and dire bears. If thier combatants tried to get up.... Mardo and Sunshi would attack them again. This pair held the bridge and saved many people of Sandpoint.... let it be known.

As for myself, I was forced to down the red dragon before it set the city alight. I channel 'Ice" balled the beast twice just as he was going to breath fire on the barracks.
While it was a mighty kill...... the dragon's huge frozen body crashed into some smaller buildings and killed six of the townsfolk hiding there. This could not be helped. I am saddened at the loss to these innocent people.

With the dragon slain and the attack thwarted, the giants flee back into the woods.

I do not pursue.... and Lady and I turn to help the townsfolk.

private entry [Sidebar]----(regarding the innocent people killed in the wake him slaying the dragon)

Balefire's Log


I must learn discipline. I have been only concerned with the power of Fire and Invocation, and how it can be used to destroy my opponents and wipe out the obstacles in my path. But this Fire is a horrible burden to bear. Its nature is to consume. And without control, it destroys everything around it.

I MUST Learn restraint or risk destroying myself and everything I love.


Fire brings only destruction and pain. It forces those of us burdened with its care to walk a razor's edge between humanity and savagery.

I fear Eventually, I will be torn apart.

THIS IS KNOWN...

Lady, start the search. Bring any wounded to the temple.

If Mardo is invovled in the capture, you will need a priest with speak with dead to do the questioning.
