When it came to the eyeless fish? They were indeed edible, though as far as the Night Goblins were concerned they tasted positively terrible. Not quite flavorless but only in the sense that they had an aftertaste that was unpleasant and seemed to ruin the taste of other food for several candlemarks afterwards.

The tunnel southwest was problematic for the Goblins mostly due to the water level rising to the point where they were waist deep quite quickly and it only appeared to be getting worse. For WAAAAAAAGH, it wasn’t quite so much of a problem given his own height and stature but given the Night Goblins’ inability to swim? He was going to be by himself very quickly unless the water could be drained somehow.

WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH


Lots of water, hm.

Hmmmm.

Hmmmmmmm.

The Warlord let out a loud shout, seeing if he couldn't use his shouty magicks to try and determine how much longer on the water went through... echoes or something. Because if the depth was steadily increasing, eventually he'd probably start running into problems too. And if that was the case they might as well come back later, because without a way to drain the water away they weren't going to be going anywhere here.

There was a lot of tunnel, far more than the Night Goblins had even considered. There was also an awful lot of water though which was what the little Greenskins had believed to be the case. Namely that Fort Goffs’ wells had probably some link to the Black River as the melting snow from the Khardran Mountains had to run somewhere.

A connection between Fort Goff and WAAAAAAAGH’s other holdings existed, only it appeared to be more of a water way than a tunnel that caravans in carts could make ready use of.

Well. Good to know that it was there. Nothing much they could do with it at the moment, though, not with just a team of goblins.

Anyway. There had been one towards Orckon, wasn't there? The Warlord was curious to see where that one went.

Turning around, WAAAAAAAGH was greeted to the Night Goblins within the main entrance prodding and poking at the orange and white fungus to force them to emit clouds of spores. Nothing too harmful, but it made for an awful lot of mess as the path towards Orckon was claimed nexy.

The route towards Orckon was far larger than the other sections of the cave, almost immediately opening up into an expanse that would take candlemarks to fully explore and go through to find every nook and cranny that might allow for further tunnels to be dug.

Bones. It was a veritable graveyard though with great piles of bones that had been stripped of flesh and muscle and piled up en masse. Bouncy Creature Bones. For the Tribes that used teef as currency? WAAAAAAAGH had stumbled upon a veritable Dragon’s horde worth of wealth. A Bouncy Creature Graveyard.

WAAAAAAAGH’s Necromancer would have been drooling at the sight.

Ooooh. Now there was something interesting.

Not worth stopping for, though. Onward! They'd follow the main path for now and see where it took them.

Onwards! Into… bats.

Lots of bats battered and assailed WAAAAAAAGH as they were drawn to the light. Not that they were actively attacking the Warlord so much as just trying to go from where they’d been roosting to the nearest exit. Aka, right behind the massive Orc.

Goblins screamed and shouted and laughed depending upon whether they were being struck or merely near comrade that had just got a face full of bat for their efforts.

The main path was rather boring otherwise. Uneven floors, a little narrow at the sides but WAAAAAAAAGH wasn’t hitting his head which was a positive.

Bats! Bah! The Warlord pushed on through them.

Boring? Boring was good when it came to transportation. Boring was less great for the Warlord at the moment, being bored and all.

But, nothing else to do besides continue onward. What with there being... well, nothing else to do. Hopefully this tunnel could take them all the way to Orckon or something.

Onwards!

Boring. Lots and lots of boring trudging through the darkness with the cave smelling appropriately enough of guano given the bats that they’d encountered. It made for an environment however that was rife for certain kinds of fungus. Most of which WAAAAAAAGH was able to identify as being both boring and only really suited towards basic sustenance for Greenskins that were desperate for food. It was the lettuce equivalent of mushrooms – a bit of crunch and vitamins, but no real taste.

Onwards!

It was candlemarks before WAAAAAAAAGH found any change in the environment other than more cave. A tapping sound like metal striking rock somewhere ahead. Given caves and the way things echoed, it could have been nearby or several hundred meters away – if not more.

Whole buncha boring. Good for the eventual tunnel! Not good for the Warlord in the now.

Metal tapping! Miners? Something to fight, maybe!

The Warlord hurried onward in search of what the source of the noise might be.

Lots of boring! It was a cave and it was cave-like and there wasn’t a whole lot of fighting, boozing, fighting, raiding or other traditional Greenskin activities. Unless one was particularly deviant when it came to bats anyway. There were still a few of those, but increasingly less surprises the deeper that the group delved. Bats tended more to stay near the cave entrances after all given that they were largely there for roosting during the day.

Tap. Tap. Tap.

The sound eventually appeared to be coming from somewhere below where WAAAAAAAGH was walking. The repeated sound that came accompanied with a singing voice that was like rocks being gargled. Dwarves. “Brothers of the mine rejoice! Swing, swing, swing with me, raise your pick and raise your voice!”

Dwarves!

...

One orc, buncha probably useless goblins. Dwarven miners. Who knew how many miners? Could be a whole buncha them down here. The Warlord craved something to do but he didn't exactly feel like throwing his life away way down here. Oughta be done on a proper battlefield if anything. Certainly not when surrounded by goblins, at any rate.

Plus, hmmm... dwarves were pretty good at tunneling, were they?

"OI!" the Warlord bellowed. "WHAT'RE DWARVES DOIN' DOWN 'ERE? DAT WAY'S ORCKON, DIS IS GREENSKIN TURF!"

WAAAAAAAAGH’s voice carried. It had a knack for that.

The Dwarves song and tap, tap, tapping came to an end as the Warlord made his presence known. Or at least hushed to the point where the Orc couldn’t pinpoint just where the Dwarves had been located other than nearby. For a given value of near given the way the tunnels and caves echoed.

“uh… Boss…” one of the Goblins squirmed, inching away from WAAAAAAAGH as if he’d just done something deemed unwise.

“Boss…. We should go… “ another added, not even waiting for WAAAAAAAGH to give the order as none wanted to be near where the Warlord had shouted. “Dwarves are (Censored), they cave tunnels in rather than fight proper…”

WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH


Cave tunnels?

"Bah! Boring!"

Well if there was no real fight to be had here, no point in getting buried or anything. "Gunna need ta figure out a way to get at dem good, den. Anyway, fer now, guess we gotta LEG IT!"

A shout to get everybody limbered up and ready to run. So... time to advance to an area where they would probably be safe from any dwarf cave in attempts.

The Goblins were all but one step ahead of WAAAAAAAGH given that there wasn’t much point in following a Warlord if he was dead. No, the Orc at the top of the Mob came and went as far as the Goblins were concerned, but their well being was far more important. Enlightened self interest, at least, when not consuming the wrong kind of mushrooms.

They were off even as halfway through WAAAAAAAGH’s shout that came accompanied with ‘Leg It!’ there was a low rumbling sound further along the cave towards the Khardran.

It didn’t sound like rock or metal objects being struck, but rather like when the snows in the mountains began to melt. Water. Lots and lots of water was nearby.

“Ruuuuuuuuuuun!!!” the Goblins screamed, pushing and shoving each other in an effort to get away from what they believed to be a very, very bad time indeed heading their way.
