Giants have emerged from their strongholds to threaten civilization like never before. The hill giants steal all the grain and cattle they can while the stone giants have scoured settlements that have been around forever. The fire giants squeeze the Smallfolk into the desert, while the giant Frost were looted along the coast of The Sword. Even the elusive cloud giants have witnessed their marvelous floating cities appearing above Waterdeep and Baldur's Gate. Where is the giant storm King Hekaton, who is responsible for maintaining order among the giants?
Humans, dwarves, elves and other little people from the sword coast will be crushed under the feet of the assault of these giant enemies. The only chance of survival is for the little people to work together to investigate this invasion and harness the power of the magic of the runes, the weapon of the Giants against their former enemy the dragons. The only way for the people of Faerun to restore order is to use the power of the Giants against them.
