Welcome to the D&D 5e Giantslayer campaign! This campaign adapts the Giantslayer Adventure Path from Pathfinder to 5th Edition.
This campaign takes place in the published world of Golarion from Paizo.
Strange storms are wreaking havoc in the Mindspin Mountains and there are rumors of large bands of giants gathering under the banner of a being named the Storm Tyrant. The orc tribes of Belkzen are still at arms despite the Flood Truce. For residents of the small refugee town of Trunau on the border between the Hold of Belkzen and Lastwall, things are fairly par for the course. But what they don't know is that the Tyrant's fury is about to catch them up in a storm of conflict!

Quick Facts: The campaign started in April of 2016. We typically played every other week, schedules permitting, as is our normal routine. Our final Giantslayer session was #59 on 12/1/18, in which the original heroes who met up in defense of Trunau managed to defeat two legendary enemies at the same time and take command of a giant cloud castle!
After shifting gears to play Forge of Fury for a few months, the heroes of Trunau have returned! In May 2019, they were conscripted by Emirikol the Chaotic in the Demonwing to face down the demon prince of undeath in his personal Abyssal layer and retrieve the fabled Wand of Orcus!
The group is now reunited, and have traversed the planes in order to confront Orcus in his palace. It's epic!
Our final session (#75) with these legendary heroes was on 12/14/2019 where they faced off against the Whispering Tyrant in his lair in the Wizard-King's Pit on the Isle of Terror.
The group will now turn our attention to playing through the adventures Waterdeep: Dragon Heist and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage. We will be moving the city of Waterdeep to Golarion and using Absalom as the basis of the campaign instead of Waterdeep.
It has been a very fun past 4 years running these adventures and playing with these characters. Looking forward to what the future brings. Salute!
