You are spot on with your reading of things. Right now all the main group knows is that there is battle going on around Thebes involving what amounts to armies.
Also, I'll just describe what you see rather than linking to it. Although visual is good I can be pretty descriptive and I was urged to do it with words.
EDIT Also I think I should add some information here for your information. Most of your characters have never seen these creatures before… any of the things you are encountering and probably the things you will encounter. I believe only Niklaus has seen them and then at night, briefly, while trying to save his sisters. I won't post if they are gnolls, orcs, goblins, or kobolds. Storm Giants, if you ever meet any, would be something like incredibly tall men with long dark (Or maybe white) beards, with bolts of lightning shrouding them like a lion's mane. Lastly, don't put too much into where the site is that I get my pictures. I'm just looking for pictures that fit my mind's description of what you see. I don't want you to be misled. These creatures you meet may not be in the MM... At least not exactly as in the MM. It would be wise for you all to remember that.
