The party encountered some hill giants. Chesty charmed the leader and brought them to the sinkhole over the cavern with the giant fish.
The leader pushed two of them down the hole and they fought the giant fish. The fish killed one hill giant, but the other managed to kill the fish.
The hill giant succumbed to the cold of the water and drowned.
Dinkgus uses heat metal to keep warm in the waters and water breathing, and learned that the cavern is huge with no end in sight and lots of fish up to about his size. And no sign of treasure.
The party quickly dispatched the remaining hill giants.
The party then began heading South.
They made progress and Canis had the idea to scout ahead in bird form. Chesty gave Canis the falcon.
Canis was able to move fast enough to scout a good distance ahead and circle back to the wagon. While scouting, some gryphons decided that the pair of falcons would make a good snack.
Canis fled to the ground and decided to take the shape of a horse, which only got the attention of the gryphons. Canis was injured by on, but used the Staff of Withering and while it didn’t wither a limb, it aged ten years and died of old age.
Canis made it back to the wagon.
That night on watch Dinkgus heard several creatures 100 yards off and went to investigate and came upon 8 ogres. Dinkgus knocked on unconscious with Color Spray and then he fled back to camp using his boots of Striding & Springing and a Potion of Speed.
The rest in camp made preparations. Jorl was enlarged once by himself, enlarged again by Chesty, and a third time by Stohagan, making Jorl 86 feet and 1/4 inch tall.
Jorl scooped one up, killing it, but bit its head off for effect.
The rest of the ogres tried to flee, but the party was too much for them.
