Returning Home (Haz)

The suns were just setting on the brightening when the horde of orcs entered their camp. They had finally returned from the Primus Countryside and were happy to be home. A circle of orcs could be seen with crossbows drawn. In the middle of the circle were four orcs without bows. These four were again surrounding an elf. The entire group had kept this position the whole journey and would stay that way until further orders were given.

Thauk and Oograh could be found outside the circle near each other. They were not talking, but after such a long journey, anything needed to be said had already been conversed about.

"Stop," Thauk ordered as they reached the camp. He kept walking to the front of the group and looked around. He would be searching for Hazbones and nobody else. Hopefully Haz would be looking for Thauk as well, but the chance of that was slight. The operation he had finished was not known around the camp, and Thauk meant to keep it that way. That is were the flame of hope that Haz was around came from.

Aerge looked around at the Orcs that surrounded him. Grinning, he decided to ask one of them a question. "Any of you guys mind if I sit down? Or is that just not allowed?" He spoke in the common tongue, so as to let the Orcs understand him, and not think that he was casting some sort of spell.

As Thauk was searching for the apparent leader of this camp, Aerge spoke to one of the orcs guarding him. In reply, the orc to his right turned and reproached, "Ju shut up. Ju do what mesa say." He thought about and then added, "An' Thauk."

The orc turned back to wait for orders from Thauk.

Aerge shrugged, not having gotten a yes or no answer, and began to sat down. He decided to sit on his feet, just knealing down on the balls of his feet, instead of on his rear or cross-legged. He just sat there for a bit, wondering what exactly was going on. He slowly smiled to himself, then just waited to see what might happen.

The orc guard on the perimeter of the camp noticed the group coming. "Thauk Shapit!" The guard announced aloud and another orc came to his side. The guard spoke a few words to the orc and he ran off. As Goren's group got closer, the guard gave the SHC salute and waved them into the camp. He glared at the captive in their group as drool fell from his jaw.

"Da bolg in camp. Him wanna see ju an' jur group by da great fire in da center of camp!" The guard said as the group entered.

The camp was a little more empty than was before. Several of the orcs were gone training in Malice and others were called off for other reasons. However, standing next to the center fire was Hazbones. Beside him was Brigum, the orc that Goren had met in the tent in the Primus Coutryside. It was obvious Brigum had been watching the events that unfolded there after all and probably had already told some of what he perceived to Haz.

Haz stood with arms crossed over his chest. His orange eyes peered at Goren as he approached. This gaze was alot less friendly than the last time Goren had seen Haz at their induction ceremony. Haz's Lorica Segmentata armor sat upon his massive shoulders darkened in the manner that noted all SHC members. His great battle axe and shield rested upon his back. Haz and the other orcs in camp looked like they had been preparing for something but none spoke except Haz. "What news ju bring?" Haz requested.

OOC: Aerge, just keep checking this thread and you will be included. From here we may change threads a couple times but I will leave links where to go each step. I'm plotting with the GM how we can carry out what I have planned for you Aerge. Please be patient.

Thauk led the entire group of orcs to the center fire and noticed Haz standing there with Brigum. As Haz spoke, Thauk gave him the SHC salute and waited for him to finish before reporting the happenings of the battle.

"Der only three shara when we git der," Thauk started immediately with no introduction. "Dey git subdued fast an' had ta shoot one in da hand ta keep him shut up. Da two paken came ta save da shara. One stupid paken, da one behind me, say he prisonner ta save da rest. Mesa told to da leader shara never ta come back. Dey stop huntin' fer us orcs like ju told me ta do. Mesa let da rest go cause we git dem ta stop an' we git dis one wit all his stuff."

Thauk turned and waved a hand hurriedly for an orc to come up to him. His hands were full and held all that was taken from the elf.

"Dis his stuff," Thauk continued. "Mesa not lose single urak an' no injuries either. What else ju need ta know? An' what me do wit da lulgijak?" Thauk waited patiently for Haz to continue.

He had done what was asked for him, yet there was still an element of weakness when he stood before Hazbones. Thauk had told himself that he did everything right and didn't even lose a single orc, but when he saw Haz, his mind raced to find some part of the even that he must have done wrong.

OOC
Aerge's things include everything WORN in his profile (his stored things were not with him). All his weapons (excluding two hidden knives that are still on him): quivers with the assortment of arrows, bow with elven sketchings, longsword, etc. His crowns and traveling supplies are also with him.

Oograh watched the proceeedings calmly. This was where subordination to Thauk came in handy. If anything had gone wrong, which he didn't think, Thauk would be blamed. for some reason he also feared Haz, although he knew that the situation went well. He was worried that he didn't show enough leadership. He felt that at any time, Haz would turn to him as shout, "An what ju did dis whole time?!" and then Oograh would never advance. He couldn't wait until he could go on jobs of the clan by himself rather than with Thauk always bossing him. Another, completely random thing bothered him, that the stupid shara in Malice had control of the orcs in the camp, or at least partly.

OOC: Just curious, but are my guards facing me, or are they facing away from me? You know, some details would be nice.

Well, there are four of them, two to your sides, one in front of you facing away, and one behind you facing you. Just like a "+" sign, if you will, with everyone facing the same direction.

OOC: Thank you...guess it is time to act...

IC: Aerge, while keeping an eye on the guards to either side and behind, drew his longknives, keeping them shelided from sight as he did so. Aerge, after fully removing them from their hiding palces, decided now was the time to strike. His first target, with his better arm, was the guard watching him, while his lesser arm went after the guard that had been to his right. He used his speed to slash out at these two, aiming for their throats as he used as much of his Elven speed as he could call upon. His hands flashed as his mind hoped that these guards would be surprised, so he could wipe them out, without them killing him before he could pull this off.

OOC: Sorry guys, I had been planning for something like that since the beginning. Guess we need a mod now, eh?

Blood splurted across Aerge's face. Greenish blood. It sprayed from the orc in front of him, the apperently not so watchfull one. About twelve inch of steel had been inserted under his colarbone, but the horrid beast lived on, very surprised. Aerge's vision was blurred now however, as was his sense of taste. Enough of the icky fluid had been sprayed across his face and into his mouth to make anyone sick, as orcish blood was fouler then a much used river near a bustling city.

It was no time for niceties however, and Aerge quickyl struck out with his other hand, aiming for the other guard. Missing. the orc had responded slowly, but quick enough to avoid a dagger in the throat. Instead it merely nicked the side of his neck, not even causing a bleeding. With a shriek from the first orc, who apperently noticed the blade sticking out of him with the elf attached, the other orcs came into full consciousness.


OOC training and injuries and whatnot please.

"Why ju not bind da pris..." Haz began to say to Goren when all the comotion commenced. This was either the bravest or stupidest elf in the whole empire to wait until he was in an orc camp to try an escape. The initial stun that the elf's surprise attack achieved quickly ran its' course as the squeel of the stabbed orc echoed through the whole of the camp. The orcs seemed to come out of nowhere from all directions. What a place to stage an escape as the group was in the center of the camp completely surrounded by orcs on all sides. (OOC: it is safe to say there are at least 26 NPC orcs physically in the camp at this time not to mention the pc ones)

All this action Haz intuitively grabbed for his great axe. Everytime this axe was taken in hand, it spilled blood. Haz hurriedly marched toward the elf with a fierce glare. The armor upon his body rattled as he lumbered forward gritting his teeth. Several other orcs flanked Haz as they rushed over to the elf. Some bore their axes, some with crossbows aiming at the elf. It seemed the whole camp converged on this one spot around the group. Only when Haz and the other orcs got to almost point blank range would a loud command be heard from Haz; "Kallog!" (Shoot!)

At the command, one orc from the left and right of Haz pulled their triggers sending two bolts hurling at the elf. The unmistakable sound of the bolt cutting through the air prompted the other orcs to grab their weapons and make ready as well.:eek:

OOC: Goren and Oograh both still control the 5 each NPC orcs you had when you left.
