Orc's Pride

Field of Sorrows

The adventures wake up to find themselves in a large field in shackles as part of some sort of prison convoy. There are about 50-75 prisoners most of them common orc-like creatures including women and children. The guards are all humans and they are extremely abusive particularly to the female prisoners. Most of the manacles are old and rusty, leaving iron burns with minimal struggling. In the distance the adventurers can see a small marshland surrounding a medium sized lake and a large forest beyond. Behind them they recognize their homeland, the woods of Grekchen.

Undoon was a small village of Orcish and goblin-oid creatures, Orc, half-Orc, goblins, hobgoblins and Bugbears. Half-Orc are the most despised of the village usually the product of a male Orc and an unwilling human female these creatures are generally hated by both worlds. Rarely will the human female nurture an offspring of the pairing, so few survive. Human males have to be severely intoxicated and rarely survive the encounter but a female Orc will take care of her child.

The adventures find themselves with no equipment, bloodied (half-life) missing one healing surge with their hand bound (manacled). They are tired and thirsty. They can feel the pain of their captured countrymen and they are overwhelmed with a hatred for their human captors.

I kick one of the human guards in the crotch and watch his wife’s purse jump.

The blow to my head confused me. All hail to Princess Dradeem, not the pretender Queen Fatonga!

There is no way that creature running around, holding up his skirts, and crying “Mommy” is a hobgoblin.
