So, thankfully, my Tuesday group is still able to safely meet in person, and we've been playing STK for the last 5-6 months.
We're just now getting close to the end, having just learned the location of the Storm Giant king. However the characters, not the players themselves, are mad at my gnome druid for literally jumping ship and running away when almost half the party got killed on the very first turn of combat.
In my defense, I told them not to fight in the first place and my gnome can only relate to/cares about one of the party members. So I honestly don't see it as too much of a betrayal. lol
