A Break in the Ice

From DDO Compendium

You know two things: that a disgrunted Frost Giant ramed Rungnir may be ready to turn against the Netherese, and that he can be found INSIDE a glacier.


The Harpers have made contact with a Frost Giant in the Storm Horns named Rungnir. Apparently Rungnir is disgruntled with his position in the emerging monster army. Harper Renton Finne believes that the right conversation with Rungnir could reveal the true scheme behind the formation of the monster army. He also believes that Rungnir could be used to drive apart the various factions within the army. He has hired you to speak with Rungnir and see what can be done.
