The fast talking gnome Meldreeb hired (shanghaied?) adventurers into helping the gnome village of Sheernob in the Kron Hills. A rare giant raid had caught them unawares, and the party was needed to scout out the current location of the gaints for reprisal. After five days in the wilderness, the adventurers returned. A hill giant encampment was successfully located, and their pursuit narrowly evaded. Glorgasaur the barbarian boasts loudly of having slain an ogre, although some versions of the story have it that the beast was, at the time, lying on the ground and weeping rather than fighting the explorers.
