Plot Synopsis

Gilden-Fire covers an episode from the doomed mission to contact the Giants and is told from the point of view of Korik, the senior Bloodguard in the party. It describes his selection of other Bloodguard to accompany the mission, then narrates the company's passage through Grimmerdhore forest, where they defeat an ambush of ur-viles and kresh. The narrative ends as the mission leaves the forest.
