As we head north to Strawford tracking the theiving witch that made off with our Shardmind piece, we were attacked by some orcs. We followed the trail of the highway bandits back to their base of operations in the forest. We infiltrated the location and slaughtered orcs as we went, it was a GOOD FIGHT! We found great treasure and our minds raced to solve riddles no doubt stolen from some other races by the orcs. In our most recent confrontation I managed to land a hit that cleanly split an orc in 2 and sent the pieces flying a good 20 feet. We have located the leader of the group and opted to barricade ourselves into a room to rest regain our strength.
