Season 3: Rise of the Giant Lords

Beginning Erenel Date: 6th of Gwirus, 625
Season 3 runs from April 1st thru July 1st, 2021
 
I remember walking in the shadows of the Sundermist Tips along the Mistwood's edge without a care in the world. Suddenly, I felt a massive hand close around me, and the next thing I saw was the inside of a sack before everything went dark.   When I awoke, I didn't see as much as I heard. Voices… deep voice, all laughing around me. Their words were in the foul Giant tongue. A mixture of cursing, shouting or both, arguing about what to do with me. Then came footsteps, the sound of groaning floorboards and a door slamming. I tried to escape, but the burlap sack was tied tight.   Then daylight, as the bag was lifted, upsidedown, throwing me to the floor. As my eyes adjusted, I saw her – a hill giant child waddling toward me, almost 10 feet tall. Her mouth was enormous with a great tongue and greasy pigtail hair. She wore what resembled a cook's apron covered in blood and gore.   "Let's … play," she said slowly in broken common, her voice dripping with excessive drool. The child pointed over my shoulder towards the one thing that still haunts my nightmares. The room was filled with bodies, gutted and battered in a large toy chest. Their insides stuffed with straw and hair—dolls made from men and women.   That's when I met her brothers. The three crazed giants lurched into the room, holding eviscerated human carcasses with their swollen fingers stuck through the backs, acting as limbs—toy puppets. They mocked my fear as if I was another plaything, brought here for their amusement. I played that day with the Gorged Mother's Children. I played with the dolls of my brethren, and I lived … escaped in the dead of night as they lie snoring in their own filth.   But have I truly escaped? No, not until I have my vengeance. After countless years, the plan is in motion, and I will savor every detail.

Season 3

New Downtime Threat: Great Halls

War has come to Erenel! Once active, players can submit Downtime Days toward the destruction of Great Halls, defensive fortifications lead by mighty Giant Lords. While active, Great Halls build power for the invading Giant Lords and debilitate the entire player base. Should they exist for too long, more Great Halls may rise, further dampening all players.   Upon reaching the individual Great Hall's downtime goal, the Great Hall will become available to assault through a chronicle adventure letting players face the Giant Lord guarding the tower. Be wary; each Great Hall matches the personality of the Giant Lord inside. Some Giant Lords may send waves of their forces; others could require stealth or diplomacy to end the onslaught.   Players can slowly submit Downtime Days or work together and rush a single Great Hall. The choice falls to the player base on how to tackle this threat. Once the Great Hall chronicle adventure is complete, the effect associated with the Great Hall fades. Each Great Hall's name, debilitating effect, and the number of Downtime Days needed to assault the tower will be available under #world-events.
 

Giant Lord Arkhem

While active, all resurrection spells targeting players have a 40% chance of failing, and players cannot rise as a Revenant.
Boosted by Vosor: While active all giant enemies gain the feature Relentless Endurance.

Giant Lord Rukvar

While active, all Giant enemies are under the effects of a 1d4 modifier Bless. This benefit is present in Archway Raids.
Boosted by Vosor: All giant enemies have advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Giant Lord Slag

Giant Lord Vosor
