The battle with the frost giants and their white dragon continued!
The party moved quickly as the Jotnar thundered closer, protecting the innocent civilians (Oxana and Dunyasha). Caelrath cast haste on all the heroes, giving them an advantage. Thrand Hallsteinsson began to lauch hailstorms of arrows at the giants, Estrid used her call lightning to keep blasting giants, Bronislava took out a giant with her bastard sword, Aurel climbed a cliff, and Basileus Arkonides threw himself into the fighting.
Hakon attacked a Jotunn with his hand axe, stiking thrice, even as Estrid called down more lightning on the dragon. A giant struck Basileus, wounding him badly, but Athelstan was by his side to heal him almost completely. The dragon once again ripped into Bronislava, leaving her barely able to stand. Basileus struck such a mighty critical hit against a Jotunn that it left the giant wide open, and each of the nearby heroes was able to make an attack of opportunity against it, dropping it dead.
The battle raged on as the number of the Jotnar shrank, and the determination of the heroes grew greater. Finally, only a single Jotunn remained, fighting on defiantly. Caelrath gave the Jotunn a chance to surrender, even as the Jotnar had offered to spare their lives and keep them as slaves if they had surrendered. The giant laughed at them, amused at the thought of the “master race” bowing to such lesser creatures as the heroes. Swords flashed, arrows fell, and finally Estrid brought the last of the Jotnar foemen down with a blast of lightning.
Joyous in their victory, the heroes made camp for the night where the monsters had intended to make their camp. They harvested everything useful from the young white dragon they had slain (hide enough for a small suit of armor, 4 vials of blood, 2 vials of stomach acid, 2 vials of gall, 1 vial of musk, skin enough for 2 grips, and a whole lot of dragon jerky!). They also went through the sacks that served as belt pouches for the giants, finding many treasures and weapons (as well as the charred corpse of a lytlingur that had apparently been kept as a snack, for which Aurel arranged a proper burial at which Athelstan officiated).
The next day the heroes continued their journey on towards Vyborg.
Manadagur, the 4th of Heyannir, 900 N.Y.
On this day the heroes arrived within sight of Vyborg . . .
