What Does The Mighty Nein Have Left: Possessed Stone Giant Edition

Thanks to @JDIllustrates for this art piece!

The Mighty Nein took out the more obvious demons Soorna told them about in the giant fortress with relative ease, but something else was lurking in the shadows. This week’s “What Does the Mighty Nein Have Left” is a little more optimistic than usual; Fjord’s in rough shape, but everyone else has nearly every tool at their disposal.

The demonic threats encroaching on their home proved too much for the stone giants, who were forced to leave after a third of their already small clan were killed. With the Mighty Nein’s help, however, Soorna was in a much better position to reclaim her home as they dispatched the initial demonic assault force.

Stone giants are typically of average intelligence, and are usually content to remain within the solitude of their clan provided they are left undisturbed. As such, it’s generally a little easier to negotiate with them than say, a hill giant or an ettin, who tend to be more aggressive and more interested in eating whatever crosses their path than talking. That said, a stone giant will defend their land with as much cunning and tenacity they can muster, making the rare instances they make a grab for territory more than a minor nuisance for those affected.
