You have assembled a party of like minded adventurers in Waterdeep, each with their own goals, but sharing one purpose to investigate the giant uprising. The sword coast is still reeling from the raids of the Cult of the Dragon and now the giants have begun raiding and pillaging the land in the defeated Tiamats wake.
Giants have emerged from their strongholds to threaten civilization as never before. Hill giants are stealing all the grain and livestock they can, while stone giants have been scouring settlements that have been around forever. Fire giants are press-ganging the small folk into the desert, while frost giant longships have been pillaging along the Sword Coast. Even the elusive cloud giants have been witnessed, their wondrous floating cities appearing above Waterdeep and Baldur’s Gate.
The only way the people of Faerun can restore order is to use the giants’ own power against them. You have been dispatched to Nightstone to investigate such an item that perhaps can assist and directed to follow any leads it may give you.
