CHAPTER XVI – Orcs

“Naughty, naughty,” suddenly speaks Kinner’s voice from behind the two bandits in the dark.

They jump in surprise, “We meant you no harm… We were just passing through, and saw your fire.”

With this Chi draws his bow back, “Thought you might scope it out, and determine how easily it would be to rob us.”

“Well, ha ha, sirs, you must understand… This is our livelihood…”

“It is a tainted profession,” the deep voice of Tor-Atimus rumbles through the camp, as he appears in front of the fire bearing his great sword.

“Please… Have mercy… Find it in your heart’s goodness to let us go…” pleas one of the Bandits.

“We’re not holding you,” suddenly speaks Zahn who walks up directly to them.

He then pulls out the medallion from around his neck, hanging on a gold chain, is a bright yellow sun.

As he holds it up to them, his eyes fill with golden light, as does the sun medallion, as it casts its’ glow upon the men…

…one of them falls to his knees, “Please… I beg of you… Have mercy,”

Suddenly all of them have retreated from their positions, and returned to their beds leaving the two Bandits where they were.

The one on his knees rises, “I know of Apollo… He is a glorious god… This land has been godless for too long…” he turns to his partner in crime, “I’m staying to find a way to serve this Cleric in anyway I can…”

“Are you mad!” the other speaks.

“No… I am saved,” and with this, the Bandit lays down his bed roll, and does his best to go to sleep.

The other runs off.

Tor-Atimus suddenly appears, and sits by the fire, as his Watch shift has begun, sending Chi to bed with the others.

“Come closer to the fire boy,” he speaks in his rumbling Half-Orc tone.

The Bandit stands, grabs his bedroll, and lays it out closer to the fire, “Thank you.”

An hour later Tor-Atimus senses… Something.

He looks up and four Orcs stand 20 feet away, just out of the fire light, but his Darkvision shows them clearly.

He raises his hand in greetings to them.

One of them raises his hand…

…Tor-Atimus stands, and walks over to them.

“Not much moon tonight…” he speaks in Orcish.

“Not much moon,” the apparent leader of them replies.

“Are you in need of food?” Tor-Artimus questions.

“We are not…” the leader replies.

Meanwhile Chi lays in the dark, listening to the conversation, as he speaks Orc, but not letting them know he is awake.

“Why are you traveling with these…” speaks the leader.

“I am a Paladin… And so I have left my people… I am from far away… A land called Despa…” explains Tor-Atimus.

“I know Despa… Why are you here?” the leader continues.

“I travel with a Cleric… A Priest of Apollo… I seek a greater purpose…” explains Tor-Atimus.

“Hmmph… We go,” replies the leader, none to pleased at his response, but, none to bothered either.

“Farewell friend…” speaks Tor-Atimus.

“May you find this ‘purpose’, and not be betrayed in the searching,” speaks the leader as he and the other three Orcs walk away.

EPISODE IX

Dane (Introduced In Episode IV) hadn’t ridden but half a day, before his horse Scarlet sensed something, and came to a halt.

“What is it girl…”

Dane smelled smoke, so tied his horse to a branch, and in stooped fashion, made his way forward…

Beyond he saw them, three orcs who looked to be setting up a campfire, as it would be night soon.

“Only three of them,” he spoke quietly under his breath.

“But why are they here” he thought to himself.

Dane wasn’t the wisest of men, but he was fluent  in Orc tongue, and felt this would be a good opportunity to put it to practice… If he could only figure out a way to get rid of two of them, leaving one for questioning.

Suddenly Scarlet broke loose and rode straight through the camp!

Two of the Orcs went after him on foot, as he’d make for a fine dinner…

While one stayed back to make the fire.

“Good girl…” Dane looked and located a large rock, and when the Orc’s back was to him, he ran in to knock him out, but stepped on a large branch…

CRACK!

The Orc turned to see the Warrior running directly at him, and lept out of the way!

Dane then stood across from him, and pulled his pole arm from his back.

“Alright then…” he spoke.

The Orc grabbed his spear, and spotted a bone horn near by.

“Fre Rah Nor,” spoke Dane in Orc, saying “For honor…”

The Orc, stunned by the hearing of his own Orcish tongue, replied, “Fre Rah Nor…”

The Orc quickly threw his spear, and would have struck Dane, but he was able to knock it out of the air with his pole arm…

Dane then charged the Orc, leaping clear over the fire, and striking him, damaging his shoulder badly.

Dane looked to see if the other two Orcs were anywhere to be seen, but they weren’t.

He then lept forward and smacked the Orc with the handle of his pole arm, knocking him unconscious…

…and dragged him a hundred or so yards away, propt him up against a tree, his hands tied behind his back, and tossed water in his face.

“Spri Quon Rarg Nah (Why are you here?)” he spoke as he held a large dagger against the Orc’s neck.

The Orc did not reply…

“Ten Po… Spri Quon Rarg Nah (Last chance… Why are you here?)”

“Kor…(Introduced In Episode VIII)” replied the Orc.

Just then he could hear his horse approach, and the other two Orcs in pursuit from some 80 feet back.

Dane quickly mounts Scarlet, and they ride off.
