Defeating The First Wave

Miklos spun on his heel and launched the pent up magic at the Orcs rushing at Maruc with a swipe of his wrist. The arcane force leapt at the grotesque creatures. The three orcs fell into instant slumber, landing with a thud.

Saeth parried another blow, continuing the fight against the mighty Orc. Deepening her voice as much as possible, she continued her shouts in Orcish. “They’re not headed to the Main Hall! They’re going the other way!” It wouldn’t fool these three, no, four for a minute, but perhaps the human could be tricked.

As the Elf and her orcish foe were locked in combat, Nicolai stealthily crawled his way under the folds of the curtain, put himself in a position to the rear or the large orc. With the Orc’s attention focused on the elf, the young rogue launched a swordstroke deep into the humanoid’s back.

With her enemy dead, the Elf shared the cheerful news with her companions. “Expect reinforcements. And allot your energy accordingly, Miklos.”

Miklos nodded at the elf. “Once we have mastery of this chamber, we will have a defensible position at the exit. I can prepare for the next assault.”

There were three entrances to the main hall; the double doors at the entrance which were barred shut, the stairs from which they had come and another door in the opposite corner of the room.

From behind the black curtain, Feldard grunted at the news of more. He kept at the armoured orc, striking at him with his axe. The orc was fighting with the ferocity of a cornered beast.

  1. Saeth Tegau

    The double doors are barred–this is from our side, not the far side?

    Breathing hard, Saeth wiped away the steady stream of blood that trailed down her jerkin, and scanned the inside of the tentlike curtains. Seeing nothing of note, she softly whispered words of the ancient elven tongue as she moved to a place she could keep an eye on the second, unbarred doorway.

    Those words, I hope, constitute a shield spell.

    Feldard: 5280/8800

  3. Nicolai (T3)

    Nicolai now attempts to get behind the Orc battling with Feldard, again to backstab.

  4. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    Feldard continued to swing and hack at his hated enemy. It was creatures like this one that continually tried raiding and looting the dwarven caverns and halls back home. It was time to exact some recompense.

  5. Miklos (Mu3)

    Seeing the others bear down on the last unfortunate defender Miklos felt he could take stock of the room. Logically the barred door would be the main entrance to the tower and this therefore would be the official entrance hall. Albeit converted into a makeshift Orc barracks, he thanked the gods that they had discovered the secret entrance. Forcing an entrance through those doors would take some doing. The way on was the doorway in front. It was likely to be barred from the other side. He guessed that it was Denetiata that spoke orcish so he was well aware that his tower was being assaulted. It was a pity that Feldards thrown axe had missed. It could saved alot of trouble.

    He started to hunt around the bodies for a key or some clue as to the means for access through the door to the upper levels.

  6. Maruc (Clr3)

    Maruc seeing his elf friend hard pressed he launched himself across the room at the beliguered orc. He took stock of his warring companions; Seath had taken a a rather unplesant looking wound and Feldard had been nicked, but not badly. Seath would require the blessing of Halav before venturing further.
