From publisher blurb:
The story of the Blood Grotto began many thousands of years ago. It was originally created by Kalios, the ancient God of Winter and father of the Ice Giants. The giants believe the realm was created as a home for them, a place to escape the growing power of the other races on the material plane. It’s certainly true that many giants dwell within the demi-plane, perfectly suited to the freezing temperatures.
But, during a particularly vicious and terrible blizzard nearly a century ago - a blizzard in which the center of the Grotto was obscured even from the Ice Giants - a great battle and clash of arms could be heard. Kalios’s great cries of rage and pain, and bizarre, eldritch howls of unending hunger filled the air. When finally the falling snow settled, Kalios was dead.
A colossal black sword had been thrust through the heart of the God and soon his blood began to seep from the wound and, in the years since, it has never ceased, still oozing and spreading across the center of the grotto to this day.
