Starting the day in the relative warmth and safety of Dalo’s cave on the Promentory of the Miklos Glacier. Darlo described some of the dangers on the Glacier.
North west of Dalo’s cave lies the Orc tribes of the Broken Tusk guarding the western passes of the glacier (What more needs to said, there be Orcs in there multitudinous numbers, bad attitude, and poor hygiene)
North of Darlo’s Cave lies the Remorhaz mating grounds (sounds bad, strangely not high on the list of sightseeing options for the glacier)
North East of Darlo’s cave the Dwarfhold Mkoz, led by Shield Dwarf Durro Thuldoun. Mining operation. Supposedly allied (paying blackmail?) with the Giants.
Approximately 500 Dwarves (Slightly better civilised than the Orcs, otherwise an unknown).
(Frost Giants have already proved Hostile, suggest approach with caution and hopefully superior firepower). Currently Bloguthkus appears to be attempting to drown his sorrows in the Mead Hall.
Further East lines the Hot Springs, an unknown but apparently warmer area of the glacier.
Furthest East lines the Skull Fortress. Home to Allac the Wizard, recluse, weirdo and served? by Yetis. (No further information yeti)
Trekking across the cold bleak land of the glacier we were attacked by 7 invisible Winter Wolves who could have used a breath mint and a good case of skinning. 5 of the 7 paid for their underestimation of our resolve to continue our journey. 2 Managed to escape licking their wounds. Hopefully this will make them and the other wolves think twice before attacking us. (And hopefully they will be a bit easier to spot if still leaking blood)
While camping in the magical hut spell 3 Yeti’s stop by for a chat and maybe to borrow a cup of Wolf’s blood. However they were unable to find the welcome mat or door bell so they were left to ponder exactly what was hiding under the dome eventually moving on to yeti parts unknown.
Arriving at the crashed flying castle, Blake and Ryndel distracted the ogre guard left by Bloggy to guard the ship with food and good conversation while Shadow, Maccath, and Hitem looked over the castle trying to figure out what had happened to the castle.
They discovered that Bloggy maybe wasnt in control of this flying castle, instead it appears his dead wife Esclarota was in charge crashing the castle while it was under attack by Dragon Cult forces. She spoke to group as they explored the castle.
We believe that spells are required to return the castle to the sky. A spell of lifting possibly a levitate, fly or reverse gravity spell and a spell to control the clouds forming around the castle, possibly a Weather Control or similar type spell. Repairs will also be required to dig the castle out of the crater it has buried itself in.
Possibly more information could found talking to Bloggy at the Giants Hall (could end badly if the frost giants take offence).
Allac the Strange with his Yetis may be able to assist with the spells to fix the castle, but what will he want in return?
The Dwarves of Mkoz might be interested in stealing the flying castle from the Cloud Giants. Would that be wise with the guard ogres and Giants closer than the dwarf settlement? Is this even possible with Esclarota in command of the flying castle?
An ominous winged shape was seen in the sky from Dalo’s cavern, and
Glados Esclarota did say that she crashed the castle to keep it out of the Dragon cults hands. I am sure a flying castle would be an asset to Tiamat. Where are the Dragon Cult, was that a dracolich?
