Sjaundidagur, the 27th of Skerpla, 901 N.Y.
The heroes, having rested for the night, decided to proceed to the 6th of the 7 floors of the castle, where they had learned that there was a gathering of frost giants and fire giants. As they approached the stairs, they found (buried in the webbing that choked every stairway in the castle) the skeletons of Thjalfi and Roskva, two legendary companions of the god Thorr. There are some legends that say those siblings accompanied Thorr into battle against the original King of Storms, in ancient days. Apparently, they fell in battle in the castle and their bodies were never retrieved.
Roskva’s corpse was wearing a girdle of giant strength +6 and was bearing a hammer of thunderbolts engraved with her name in runes. Thjalfi’s body was wearing boots of speed and bearing a spirit blade engraved with his name in runes. The heroes took these mighty treasures to aid them in their quest against the Storm King and his allies.
The heroes reached the sixth floor of the castle’s central keep, where they met with svartalfar guards. Estrid Freysteinn bluffed her way past the guards, claiming to be an envoy of Valpurga the Chaos-born, with Neferata claiming to be a representative of the Pharaoh of Kumat. Caelrath maintained a telepathic bond among members of the party to aid in their deception.
And so the heroes bluffed their way into a diplomatic meeting between svartalfar representing the King of Storms, Snurll the fire giant chief with his queen and his guards, and Vorr the frost giant chief and his guards. The heroes fought a mighty battle against the leaders of the giants and prevailed, though some of the guards lived to retreat up to the 7th floor . . .
