Hill Giant Emissary
Gordon is an emissary sent by the Hill Giant King to meet with Golkabob, the leader of the ogres.
Padraig witnessed this meeting from hiding and saw the following exchange:
‘I am Golkabob and my masters have summed you as your people have something in their possession that we greatly desire. They have foreseen an awakening of ancient magic and have facilitated a movement across the land of artifacts of old. There is a gold ring in your King’s possessions with old Elf writing on it and a bright blue stone. Take this as a gift. Return to your King and I promise another coffer just like this one if you bring me the ring.’
He opens the coffer in front of the giants face and a bright white gleam bounces off and onto his face like in the movies, then he closes it, offering it to the giant with an outstretched hand and a slightly evil smile.
‘With whom do I have the pleasure of speaking with?’
‘I am Gordon and I accept your offer Golkabob. This one and at least four others must come with me. We will return in one cycle of the moon to this very place.’ The one Ogre growls and orders the three standing there to gear up. ‘You three get ready to leave immediately.’
