Names are also in the process of changing, so some names are inconsistent currently.

You have received a mysterious letter that speaks of the Clay Giants' Vollan Rue and the history of their sports. The words ask you to come to the village of Campfire, where you will begin your journey towards the Hills of Vollan and a prize that many would be more than grateful to have. You have been invited to an exhibition at the Vollan Rue, where those who are not Giantkin can test their strength and wit to earn a coveted trade contract with the Cradle of Clay.

I love the idea of centering an adventure around these games. The campsite descriptions are quite detailed and inspiring to put into a journey segment. It may be a little light on plot and action for some players, but I happen to know a few for whom this would be just right. Nicely done!

If you have some time, I would much appreciate your feedback on my entry for Adventure April: Carbon Copy Paradise

I have been running crazy but have kept this article on my Notification Board for a couple of weeks. I didn't want to visit until I had time to poke around. I am so glad I did. The love and attention to detail here and throughout your world is so obvious. Your use of so many World Anvil features is amazing in keeping this page very clean and easy to navigate (carousels, embedded pdfs, links, tabs and sub-containers). This adventure looks like a lot of fun as a player or a game master. It is so amazing to see the forge burning bright.
