We have been in the dwarven hall for hours it seems and we spot a figure slumped against a door, which we soon discovered was a dwarf being used as a door stop. as we go through the door we see piles of bodies one Dwarf the other Orc and looted. there is more sounds that catch our attention and we cautiosly look to find it is a small group of Orcs arguing aboout thier latest loot. rurga decides to turn on the charm and finds these boys don’t seem to be intrested in her as much as she would like and at that moment the rest of us are forced to take action. as we round the next corner I waste no time doping a weekminded fool and continued on to seal thier escape, which was really not neccessary for the rest of the party is quick to dispatch the rest.
We soon continue and run into the caverns were there is some whispered chanting echoing off the walls, this sends us on the hunt.
The source of the chanting is found and he is not alone but no matter we have some of the most eager combatents in the world. Schurr and Holg act quickly to take down the Orc warriors, and as Zarek puts an arrow into the shamen I realise he may have more knowledge about our enemies and of this sacred pit and cavern. I move to capture his mind and learn all I can, A few questions later and we are on our way, I decide to keep this one close to me for a little longer. There is a bit of a travel before we run into yet another patrol, this one trying to get to a small group of dwarves that are chanting, and very tired looking they are trying to keep a defensive barrier between them and the Orcs. I suggest that the shaman might put his warrior comrads to sleep as to not get into a conflict. unfrtunatly this is all botched and more combat ensues and I am forced to take my new puppet’s life rather abruptly. After the small skirmish we give aid to the Dwarves, in exchange one agrees to be our giude to the citadel.
The halls are long and wining for we are using some of the lesser traveled roots threw the mountain pass and it is brilliant that we end up by some falls just outside the citadel. Upon arriving at the citadel there is another small regiment of Orcs, one on a rather large boar. I cannot help the thought of one pig headed warrior on a larger pig. I notice there are gaurds on towers and by the gates. The warriors go to work quick and Schurr takes down three in a flurry of power and killer instinct, and Holg in a commanding voice challenges the mounted warrior to duel. I quickly notice the Dwarf getting into possition to fire his crossbow and Zarek reading his bow as well. I focus on my target and have this thought of a matchstick, in turn I see the Orc ignite on fire and start to burn just as i imagined.
The battle waged forth and we took one after another until only Holg and leader were left, and then there was just Holg victorious and a little worse for wear. With the battle finished we decided to rest for a bit.
