Roll up a hero if you want to join, you find the rules here: >>5083 (OP)

THROUGH THE MISTMOOR
——————–
You find yourself in the city of Trallop, a large town in the northern parts of the Middlerealm. Nestled at the southern coast of huge Nine-Eyes Lake it is usually the last friendly and civilized place those travelling north get to visit for many days or weeks.

You were looking for work in the hopes of earning a few coins when you were contacted by George Coalblazer whom many just call “Trallop George”. He is a well-known merchant who dominates the trade in the northern parts of the world. He had heard of your past endeavors and seeks bold and competent men and women. That sounds just like you, doesn't it? But will you be up for the task?

Both Vin and Naz are able to understand at least part of what the orcs were talking about.

The largest and best armed among them was clearly their leader. It seemed like the orcs had come to the swamp to search for an ancient cultic place of their kind. They were only staying for a day or two before moving further west.

If we find it first, then tell them where it is that won't guarantee they will let us off unharmed. If anything they'll probably beat us to a pulp.
I think I have an idea, but I need to investigate the leaders tent.

The leaders hut was easy to see, sporting the a bulls head that was hung above it. The bull being a symbol of their god of war.

But getting into it would be difficult, requiring a very hard Dexterity check; unless you have a better plan to get in unseen.

Both remain well hidden while they whisper and plot. The orcs haven't noticed them yet at all.

One of the orcs is eager to taste some of the booze they had stolen from the wagons, the others agree though their leader doesn't seem to happy about them getting drunk so early.

One of the orcs opens the crate and gets out some of the bottlers, the others cheering. After seeing it is some very good stuff the leaders gives a smirk, grabbing the biggest of the bottles.

Praising their vile gods the orcs begin to drink, laughing and cheering.

The orcs empty one bottle after another. Being big and strong they have a strong alcohol tolerance but eventually they all had quite a bit and a quarter of the crate is empty when their leader tells them they've had enough. He produces a crudely drawn map and shows it to the other orcs, placing it on the crate so they could see it. Pointing at several spots their shaman told them to check out in the swamp.

During all this time the duo remained well hidden.

We need them to drink more.

I dunno if BANNBALADIN would be much help. Even if I befriend one of the Orcs from a far range spell I wouldn't know how to encourage him to keep the party going.

The leader told them to prepare for departure and began shooing the others all over the place. He put the map on the booze crate, leaving it unattended for a moment.

I have an idea. We will need a distraction... a "drinking song" distraction. The kind that will cause them to be confused just long enough to question what they're seeing and long enough for me to cast BANNBALADIN on them.

We have to act now!

The orcs hurled around... for a moment they looked confused, unsure what to think of this. Some recognized the elf and dwarf, they had only battled them the day before.

At last, the orcs are done drinking; some are too drunk to still stand and they fall to the ground, falling asleep, snoring loudly.

A few who can take the most alcohol are still standing or sitting, including the chieftain.

He bids Vin farewell as he soon has to continue his search for the ancient cult place.

What is this ancient cult place you're looking for? And why you're taking guff from the guy with the stick?
