Where is Duke Zalto

First, you must prove yourself! When human barbarians came to these lands, they fought our kind and stole our relics, burying them in the ground. The humans built alters to Uthgar, their god-king, atop these relics and surrounded their alters with burial mounds. Go to these mounds, retrieve one or more of our lost relics, and bring them here as tribute. Do this , and your path will be made clear. There are many paths you can take. The more relics you deliver, the more paths you will have to choose from.

Several evil giant lords stand ready to oppose you. You can ruin all of their plans by defeating just one of them. Which one that remains to be seen.
