A few short years ago, evil dragons stirred into action by their dark queen, Tiamat, threatened the settlements of the Savage Frontier for a time. Ultimately, they were defeated and forced to withdraw to their lairs, while Tiamat was banished back to the Nine Hells. Fear of the dragons' wrath has faded quickly with the coming of the newest threat: giants. The peoples of the North are no strangers to giant incursions. Frost giants have long claimed the Spine of the World as their demesne, and hill giants are known to scrounge for food in the untamed hills.
But in the past couple of months, giants of every kind have emerged from their strongholds in force to threaten civilization as never before and not just frost giants and hill giants, but also stone giants, fire giants, and cloud giants. All of these giants are in an uproar, but for what reason is still unknown at this time. Reports of giant attacks throughout the North have reached the coastal cities of Luskan, Neverwinter, and Waterdeep, stoking fears that the giants are waging war against the humans, dwarves, elves, and other small folk of the North.
All the talk throughout the marketplaces and tavern halls of Waterdeep is about the giants, but this is not the topic Veradda Stoor has called you to The Jade Jug for. She wants to talk about treasure, specifically the lost treasure the Cult of the Dragon amassed for the return of Tiamat. She has found the location of a stash nearby and is offering each of you a share to help her in retrieving it.
