When Desmond jests it breaks the tension with the orcs and goblins. they nod and ease their weapons down. "You misfit...like us! That's what Moth'r calls us ...guud misfits." The big orcs laughs s he thumbs his chest.


Without warning everyone draws a weapon when they notice the drow. "Who he?" One shouts, "Not going back...slaver...bounty hunt'r....no go!" Clearly everyone is concerned with Nym's presence. Tension spikes.


The guard at gate scrunches his brow, "Missun hunters...no come back, go long time."

Three other orcs gather around as you move inside the gate. They've heard of you but not seen the legends known as Kalim and Karnog. "Fathers of the City". Then suddenly another 8 goblins appear out of nowhere. Goblins are new here.

"Fuud...guud." The orc looks at one of the goblins. "goblun go git Meath'd."

It's still a bit unsettling seeing "non-violent orcs and now goblins" living in a community.

Once inside you can see they have an agri-business going: some limited crops and farm animals. Being the first year of the community this is impressive. There are signs of other trade occurring in the town.


Felicitas do you have the ability or spell prepared/scroll to speak undercommon? If you don't have undercommon, I see you speak orcish and abysal so those may help out.

One the orc sneers after it speaks in undercommon.

Aurora scouting from above let Felicitas know, Trading caravan by the looks of it.


One points to the broken tusk and grunts in broken common to girl's question, "Smart." He grins with both of yellow stained tusk. The three half-orcs puff their chests a bit when they notice Ptahh, the hilts of their falchions look well used. He steps away from the door to let the group enter.


Previously with the orcs and kalim's speach.

Several orcs listen intently, others have a glazed look on their faces, but to an orc they all remain still and quite while Kalim speaks. When he is finished speaking the orc that speaks broken common tries to translate to the the others.


A female orc with a half tusk tries to get friendly with Desmond, speaking in what would be gibberish to scout, he can only assume what she is offering him. Something about skins, a goat and furs.


The orc children surround Kalim and his sack full of toys, items they have rarely seen but the most hearting fact is the how the orcs are. Of course it helps that there is no shortage of toys, thus no conflict between the kids.


The orcs begin to form work parties, they makes sure every useful piece of cloth are stripped from the bodies, and they carry the corpses outside where directed. Piling the dead. There are a few tears but the orcs adjust quickly to their new leaders commands. They regard Karnog with awe, but respect the might of Karnog's followers.


One lady steps forward, "Eye und'sstand common guud." Karnog her speech is broken, but she appears to understand simple common well enough. The orc directs other to gather buckets and vessels. they are cautious but comply.

Their eyes widen with the creation of clean water several are suspicious but a few drink it and smile. The healing channel takes them all by surprise; at first, they don't know why their wound are toughing, and knitting back together, but then several begin to bow down to Karnog.

"Great sha'man," the orc reverently bestows upon Karnog. The orcs begin praying to Karnog.


If you're not hostile towards the women and children they will be no problem to you. If permitted several will walk over to Daarnog and kick him. A few others will do the same to some of the dead orcs. The group will gladly vacate if ordered to but prefer to stay put. They gather their tattered belongs and the few coppers they have.

They will point to the two rooms and one speaks broken common. "Rooms fer bosses. 'Ware his chest...nasty trap." She points towards Daarnog room.

"Hiden passage leads t'waste area and hidden ladder to surface.

Updated map


The guard drops his weapon and raises his hands over his head...yelling something in orcish. karnog's comprehend language is still effective for him so he understands "I surrender...surrender."

These archers, although skilled, are off their marks.


The orcs snarl as Grung's stone clanks harmlessly away. The authoritative sound of orders are given. The shortbows take aim.


I'm going to assume Grung helped and lends you a bonus to the tug.

The startled orc is yanked forward and tumbles into the trench with a loud cry.


The bolt crashes into the orc with the bow. He growls with fury focusing his blood red eyes on the spellcaster.
