Double Axe Orc camp near Malice (all welcome but beware)

OOC: All uses of NPC's in this thread are cleared. If questions about the NPC's or anything else, PM me.

Continued from Remnants in Maevewood thread

After following the man from their meeting spot in the Maevewood to Malice, the orc column turned and went out in search of a concealed spot that was also easily defendable so they could set up a fortified camp. The orcs were weary, not just from the long march they've completed after fighting their battle but also from not eating for a while now. They looked forward to a nice meal.

The column wound through the Midlands with Hazbones at the lead on his mare hoping to find a spot soon.

The man led the orcs to quite a nice spot, almost directly next to malice, with some hills nearby and a stream. Rocks were cluttered all over the site, but they could be moved to make the spot more defendable.

"Here you are, I trust you to decide upon your own camping. I must be leaving now, I shall send the orcs your way." The man said, as he turned his back to the orcs to leave.

Haz watched as the man rode off back toward his fortress. Haz moved forward with the column to the top of one of the highest hills and dismounted.

"Drop jur packs ju lazy dung piles. Dis camp need ta git fortified quickly." Haz shouted in a gruff voice. There was no room for showing fatigue now as all the orcs were tired and were going to need some strong (forceful) encouragement to get the camp finished quickly.

Haz turned to his captains and they spoke for a while. The Captains then turned and began to shout at the orcs and push them around to get them into action. Some were hesitant (especially the small one) but after the orc captains began picking up sticks and whacking a few across the head with them, they soon were moving with the rest.

The camp quickly took shape. Orcs began rolling the larger rocks into a ring around surrounding the crest of the hill. The animal hide tents sprang up from the orcs gear and soon there were orc patrols in motion watching the coutryside around the tent (especially between Mailce and the camp). Most of the orcs slept, others ate the rations that they had hunted and killed in the hunt prior to their battle the day before near Narim. The cool spring water was a bit tough for some of the orcs to swallow but they just turned up their noses and tried to swallow down the water to quench their unbearable thirst. In all, there were 8 orcs in the camp. Four were out on two seperate patrols and Haz was out of the camp for a while but returned shortly.

As Haz rode up to the camp he inspected their work and agreed the ring of rocks could be easily defended at a moments notice and the watchers manning the ring could see for a distance from the hilltop.

Haz went to the top of the hill and in the center a fire was being started. Orc's that were awake sat around it holding their swords and shields over the fire and smoke to blacken the shining parts of their weapons (which was a common practice by orc). Haz sat next to the others and began to think. Joining this strange man to fight against the Imperials was not his true intent. It was true though that the orcs would have a better chance of living and dying with honor in battle than running and dying trying to avoid the fight that would always find them no matter where they hid.

At that moment, Haz's thoughts were interupted by one of the 3 captains that had returned from a task he was assigned.

"Urok voshatraum mab thop at." He said in his orc tongue pointing to a nearby hill about the same height as the hill they were on. "Tul gil." he added as he sat with the others.

Haz nodded and took his axe and held it over the fire. The blood on the axe face turned a dark black. Haz waited patiently for the promised orcs to arrive from Malice and for the daylight to fade once again so his orcs could move about more freely.

After a while, an hour or three after the human escort had left fifteen orcs walked in, all of them wearing chainmail and with large triangle shields on their back. They were well equiped, as their weapons were not hidden. they all had axes and spears, while most of them carried a backup weapon - or three.

They greeted the other orcs and deployed their tents and the other equipment they had.

The last one wore black robes, but it was evident he wore some armour underneath it as well due to his massive rectangular shoulders. A large jaggedy knife hung from his belt and the signs on his robe made it clear he was a necromancer.

"I am Uruhk." He introduced himself privatly to Hazbones.


(These are under your controll as well now)

Haz sat quietly next to the fire sooting his weapons to stop any glares from reflecting from them. The day had wore on but the orcs still waited patiently for night so they could move about more freely. None of the orcs wanted to move about in broad daylight like Hazbones. Some of the orcs who had slept upon completion of the camp were beginning to wake up and relieve those that were on guard or patroling.

One orc had awaken and wearily drug himself over to the fire.

"Wha ju tink ju doin?" One of the Orc Captains said tossing a small branch he had poked into the fire at the sleepy orc.

The orc quickly woke up fully and snapped back at the Captain. "Mesa gonna sit an' eat. What ju tink?"

"Ju goin' to watch duty first." the Captain replied and gave a quick evil glare following his statement.

The once sleepy orc only glared at the Captain but didn't make a sound. Turning he walked over to the stone ring around the camp and relieved an orc that was on duty. Before he had fully taken in the view from his position though, he spotted something approaching. It was a big group of figures.

"Bolg! Urak!" he shouted pointing out toward the group.
(Sir! Orcs!)

Haz rose as well as the other 3 Captains. The small orc of the group, who was nearby, heard the call and started out to see for himself but one of the Captains kicked him to the ground before he could get close enough to see.

As the new orcs came up the hill, Haz greeted them and made sure they were settled. Haz took special note of the orc in the robes and knew he was in the magic profession.

"Uruhk, mesa glad ta see ju." Haz began. "Mesa need ta ask a few tings of dis man an' da group at Malice." Haz was eager to know what the man had in store for the orcs and who better to ask than another orc who undoubtedly knew. "How him treat da orcs an' what him gonna do wit da Imperials dat be lookin' fer us." Haz stood looking at the necromancer and the Captains moved in closer with arms folded awaiting an answer.

OOC: Joneleth, can you answer that question? Also, can you tell me when night comes so my orcs can move around more?

The small orc watched the new orcs move in and make their own group within the camp. The camp had now swelled to 27 orcs plus Hazbones! One of the new orcs however, was eying Haz's horse. It was no secret that orcs loved to eat horse and it seemed one had taken a liking to the "bolg's" horse.

The little orc watched the new orc as he eyed the horse. "Dat be nice. Him eat da bolg's horse din him hafta trot in da damn dust like mesa." The small orc thought to himself.

The orc priest nodded to Hazbones in respect to his new leader.

"The Malice people treat us like they treat the humans, pretty good, knowing we're soldiers." The priest showed his armour that stuck underneath his robes, revealing a breastplate. "We are well equipped, as you can see."

"We are not waging a war against the imperials, we would undoubtly lose; their numbers are so far superiour then ours, we would be overwhelmed, even with the mighty power of Lord Jorel and Master Arachnis at our side." the orc spoke with a fluency that betrayed his intelligence, obviously he was more intelligent then the others, or he wouldn't have become a priest, but it seemed even greater then Hazbones suspected.

"We raid caravans, and undermine the operations the Imperials undertake however."

ooc You can make it night at your leasure

The orcs settled in and by the time all were rested, night had began to descend on the camp. Haz was thinking about what Uruhk had pointed out that the new orcs were far better equipped than the ones he was leading. Haz knew that he had better equip his own orcs better for them to last beyond 1 or two engagements. Raiding a caravan or some travelers and taking their better weapons and armor would easily solve this problem.

Haz gathered his Captains and told of his thoughts and they more than eagerly agreed that they needed better arms and armor. Haz chose one captain and 10 orcs to follow him on a patrol to seek out a target and raid it for their armorment and weapons.

The Patrol
The patrol quickly formed up and the orcs partook of some orkish ale to get them in the mood before they left the camp. 10 orcs followed the larger captain off into the woods. 4 were armed with crossbows and 6 with bastard swords.

Staying within hasty retreat distance of the camp however, the patrol began their search for an easy target...

OOC: Can you tie the patrol into another PC's thread perhaps or you can just bump them into some NPC's? Your choice.

OOC: Starting with something simple (I hope...). I made a link to the thread I tied into.

Wandering near Daltina

IC:
Orc Patrol
The patrol didn't have far to go before they neared Daltina itself.

"Don' git too close ta shara city!" One orc said to the captain leading them with a little apprehention.

The orc captain turned to the orc and replied: "Mesa not..." before he could begin his sentence, the unmistakable chatter of a human could be heard. The large orc captain motioned and the 10 orcs spread out into a long line and began moving toward the sounds. As the orcs quietly moved in closer, they spotted the source of the noise. Two figures were in a tree?

One orc leaned over and whispered into the Captains ear. "Dat oder one wit da female shara look bit strange fer a human mesa tink."

The Captain nodded and whispered into the ear of one of the crossbow wielding orcs. That orc nodded and moved in toward the tree the two were in. With a hand motion from the captain, the other orcs moved in to surround the pair... (OOC: continued in the linked thread above)

The main camp was weakly defended with only Haz, Uruhk, 2 captains, and 13 orcs. Haz was a bit worried about the weakness of the camp while the patrol was out. Uruhk noticed this concern of Haz's face and began to motion with his hands and chant under his breath. Haz and the other 2 captains watched Uruhk in amazement as the chant slowly got louder.

Uruhk was in full concentration upon something the other orcs couldn't see. It turns out Uruhk is making an attempt to cast a protective barrier around the camp to keep out intruders.

As Uruhk was trying to cast his spell, one captain laid his had on Uruhk's shoulder and it broke his concentration. "Look der! Da patrol's returnin'!" the large orc exclaimed.

Haz looked out and spotted three orcs from the patrol that was sent out. They were escorting another figure. As the orcs approached the camp Haz appraoched them hastily. "What da matter? Ju git attacked? Where da rest of dim?" Haz was obviously worried the worst had happened?

"Bolg, da patrol okay. Took dis prisoner da turn out ta be urak! Da captain stay behin' wit da others. Dey foun' da shara female wit dis lil' urak here. Him say dat female him slave but da Captain din' wan' da female prisoner so him jus gonna leave her after him loot her."

"Good work Grimish. Mesa take da urak prisoner now. Mesa question him an' see what mesa gonna do wit him." Haz replied.

Haz motioned for Kuzak to come with him to his tent. Haz enters his tent and sits waiting for Kuzak to take a seat.

Kuzak followed Hazbones with his head hanging low attempting not to look into his eyes. The half-orc's grey skin stood out greatly, along with his indigo eyes. Frowning, he took a seat.

"Ashdautas vras bat lat wee one. Lat sha shara?" Haz began to ask when Kuzak sat down. Haz paused and thought for a moment. Seeing Kuzak wasn't a full orc, there was a chance he didn't speak orkish. Haz grunted then spoke again in "mans" tongue.

"Welcome wee one. Mesa Hazbones, of da Bonehammer clan an' Surgeon Major of da Alyssan Military. Tell mesa why ju look ashamed. Why ju wit dat shara female in da woods?"

Haz sat still and waited for the half-orcs reply.

The orcish words of Hazbones rolled over Kuzak. He had no idea what the orc was saying but he guessed that it was in the orcish tongue.

Still shaking harshly, the young half-orc boy looked up to Hazbones' eyes when he began to speak in common. "I a... am well I don't really have a name." He said and gave a painful look then continued." The girl, I just met her outside that city... your not going to kill me are you?"

"Nar udatas" wee one. Haz replied.
(Not today)

"Ju not need ta be afraid. Mesa need all da orcs mesa can git. Mesa sure ju had all da tough times ju can handle in jur short life. Mesa wanna give ju da chance ta live on wit jur own kind. Da Aelyrian kingdom divin' inta chaos. Da King killin' innocent people and riots breakin out everywhere. Da imperials huntin' an' attackin' orcs anywhere dey can fin' dim an' dats why mesa here. Des orcs need da leadership. Maybe if mesa can win some more fights da Imperials will leave us alone."

Haz stands and grabs a water skin. Gulpin down the liquid contents you can smell it is of some sort of alcohol mix.

"Snaga nar baj lufut." Haz said.
(Slaves don't make war)

Looking back to Kuzak with a serious stare. "What ju say wee one. Ju wit us or ju wanna be slave all jur life?"
