After approximately 100 turns (varied by your World Progress setting) you will start to get random "Tremor" events which slowly increase in danger and difficulty.

Random Tremor Events Edit

These events can affect the town or an expedition or both.

Shaken with Tremors Edit

The whole land is shaken with tremors! Groans and thudding footsteps are heard without. (You will get one of the options below only as a choice - random each time)

Lone Elderly ManEdit

Another tremor shakes your village to its core. The fields around your home shake violently and the skies turn dark and foreboding.

The earth grumbles and cracks open, but before reaching your threshold, it all stops.

In the midst of the chaos, you see a lone elderly man trying to make it to your gates.

  • Try to help him out.
    • Eventually you will get these options:
      • Shouldn't we move our village?
      • How do we stop them?
        • Gain top quality weapon, awesome artifact/s, 1 stack of a top tier resource
          • Alright, give us the directions and maybe we will look.
            • Gain the first Giant's Return map marker
            • 3XP
          • ???
          • ???
      • An Elf from your village steps up to speak... (Requires an Elf in the village)
        • Gives the same 2 options as above
  • Just watch him, weapons at the ready. 
    • All dialog options lead the same options as above..
  • Kill the stranger!
  • 'Stay away from our village stranger!' Don't let him in.

NOTE: I think this occurs if the Giant's Awakening quest has progressed far enough for the first map marker to appear, but you haven't started/completed the Cosmic Tree Quest line yet.

Giants Return: Edit

Approximately 150-300 turns into the game, you will get an encounter from Kostey and the Oracle telling you about the dangers of the awakening Giants and starting a series quest chains. The Quest may instead be introduced to you by Annasari, an Elven druid from Silveroak - this might be the default if you have already finished the Cosmos Tree quest line and discovered Silveroak. Or the Quest may instead be introduced to you by an old scholar from the growing university - this might be the default if you have already finished the Cosmos Tree quest line and sided with the Humans.

NOTE: You may have the Lone Man encounter instead of one of these encounters, in which case this is all skipped.

Results of the conversation will depend upon your deity:

Giant's Return map marker will be added to your map.

Giants Return first quest marker Edit

NOTE: There are different variations of how you learn about the story of the Giants and what to do next. The encounter is random and you will discover who you are dealing with when you eventually visit the first map marker (although you can guess who it will be baesd on what the messenger tells you to do in the previous stage).  They each involve meeting with a shaman/wise one/king of one of the other races.

These events should occur in a random order and help you to track down the Planetnik Lord.

On the third visit to this location the babies will be gone, but you should find a small amount of gemstones (probably Rubies) +2XP
