(RP) The Viper Clan Orcs (part 3)

The Viper Clan orcs gathered hostages and tied them together in the lower Minoc mine. Vonak helped prepare the chargesfor their next attack. As soon as the hostages were tied down and the blast charges were set the orcs climbed over and out of the mine.

Backing an almost safe distance the orcs threw rocks to detonate the charges.

The intense heat from the fire caused the stone of the mountain to become brittle and began to buckle.

The explosions weren’t finished by the time the rocks fell blocking the entrance to the lower mine.

The rubble continued to burn as the orcs could hear the hostages scream from inside.

Some of the hostages manged to break free of their bonds but were unable to make it out of the mine. With the few tools they have and low light it will be hard for them dig their own way out.

More hostages were gathered and brought to the upper mine. Again they were tied down and left to scream. Dan’tub laughed at them as he climbed over the charges he set.

Again the orcs took turns throwing rocks at the barrels ofhighly volatile explosives.

The blast blew shards of stone and ore from the mountain side and caused an avalanche of fire and stone.

Pieces of rock hit the orcs who cheered in delight.

The orcs danced in revelry for their Bloodgod.

Again inside the hostages were just as injured and trapped.

Since the attacks on the bridges leading into the city of Vesper the orcs had been content running a guerrilla campaign in the forests just outside Vesper and Minoc against small caravans. But since the caravans never made it to Vesper no one successfully came looking. The orcs grew impatient. They were not getting the tribute they expected. Their leader Dan’tub decided to stalk one such caravan until it got to the border of Vesper. This would leave little the imagination to the people of Vesper and the orcs would get the tribute they deserved!

In total twenty innocent lives were lost and their cargo stolen or destroyed.

The Orcs reveled in delight. They disemboweled the corpses and danced with their intestines. they ate the still warm hearts.

The trail of bloodshed soaked into the snow and soil as they killed almost anything that moved.

They nimbly crossed what was left of the North West bridge when they ran into some Zoogi Fungus. Whilst distracted by the intoxicating mushrooms Quacklebush and some other men startled the orcs in what they perceived to be an ambush.

I apologize for the lack of screenshots from here on. By this point I was more concentrating on staying alive and not getting captured since I had live witnesses. Thanks to those that were able to chase us and do some fighting, even if it was just emote fighting to start with.

They took off across the newly reconstructed North Bridge feeing down the path to Minoc. Luckily Dan’tub had thought ahead and had his brute ambush Quacklebush and his men. Quacklebush turned his skin to stone and turned a nearby rock into a juggernaut. The orcs continued to flee until they got to the mines just outside of Minoc.

There they took a begger hostage unless Quackleebush stopped following them. Quackleebush seemed to retreat. Dan’tub killed the begger anyway and created a gate to Umbra. The Orcs made it through to Umbra but so had Quackleebush just before Dan’tub managed to dispel his gate. Dan’tub cast another gate to Dagger Isle in Felucca. Quackleebush had been tricked into going through but somehow Vonak fell in as well. Dan’tub opened a gate to their camp and ordered Krugrak and the rest of the orcs to retreat for now.

They did as ordered and Dan’tub recalled to Dagger Isle in Felucca to see Quackleebush in stone form standing over the unconscious body of Vonak. Dan’tub attacked the towering figure and led him on a chase across the tundra. Dan’tub used the seemingly abandonded buildings to dodge Quackleebush. Dante would duck under homes only to found once more. He dipped into a pile of snow but the stone behemoth followed after. Dan’tub dove into the icy water only to climb out with Quackleebush still on his tail. Dan’tub finally dodged Quackleebush long enough to summon some imps to keep Quackleebush busy as he double backed to rescue Vonak. Throwing the female orc over his shoulder he ran as fast as he could he buried themselves in a pile of snow long enough for him to rest so he could open a gate back to their camp finally giving Quackleebush the slip.

Reposted for Dante Darkheart with his permission.

Three orcs of the Viper Clan gathered in secret in the town of Vesper with mysterious cargo. They began unloading it and their leader began assembling several contraptions designed to blow up They began by lighting the wick at the docks..
Dan’tub: Latz reddi!? *Raises his torch* (English/Common:You ready?)
Krugrak: Yub (English/Common:Yeah)
Kodish: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
Dan’tub: Weez maak bubhosh boomaz. Da Hoomeez nub leeb izland. Da hoomeez nub get nom nomz. *lowers the torch to the wick, he chases the sparkle to the explosive charges* (English/Common:We made a great bomb. The Humans will not leave the islands. The Humans will not be able to get food.)


As it counted down the orc closest plugged his ears with his fingers and ducked.


The Orcs’ eyes filled with wonderment as they set off their first charge littering the harbor with debris.

The left for the north bridge before the flames finished settling at the docks. Again the orcs cheered in delight as the bridge exploded and burned.
Dan’tub: Okiez!! nuw wi blo da north bridgez!! (English/Common:Okay!! Now we blow the North Bridge)
Krugrak: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
Kodish: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
Dan’tub:Diz iz et urkz!!! Dis iz da tyme fur da urkz!!! *lowers his torch to the wick* (English/Common:This is it orcs!!! This is the time for the orcs!!!)


The Orcs then went around to the North East Bridge.and began setting their charges
Dan’tub: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
Krugrak: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
Kodish: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
Dan’tub: Da norf ov da cityy will bi cut uff from da hoomeez. Dey nub getz nom nomz. (English/Common:the North of the city will be cut off from the humans. They will not be able to get food)



Dan’tub: *lights the wick*
The orcs watch gleefully as they feel the flames of the initial blast singe their eyebrows.

As the orc watch the bridge burn and crumble into the canal below Lady Khaleesi showed up.
Dan’tub: Run liik latz stolez it!!! (English/Common: Run like you stole it!!!!)
Krugrak: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
Kodish: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)
The three began running south to the next two bridges. Dan’tub and Krugrak lost Kodish in the forest.


Dan’tub made it to the West Bridge in time to light the wick.
Dan’tub: HOOWAH!!! Keep runnin’ tu da next bridgez and booma dat bridge tu!!. (English/Common: Keep running to the next bridge and blow up that bridge too)
Krugrak: HOOWAH!!! (English/Common:Hooray)


Dan’tub danced with delight as the charred bridge fell into the canal below.


Krugrak made it to the south bridge and began lighting the wick.


Krugrak too danced in reverie as the bridge collapsed under the flames.


Soon after Dan’tub and Krugrak met up between the now charred rubble of the two bridges.
Dan’tub: Da hoomeez be luukin fur uz urks. (English/Common:The humans will bbe looking for us orcs)
Krugrak: Yub. (English/Common: yeah)
Dan’tub: uz urks bedda runz inta da furrest an’ hydeez. (English/Common: us orcs had better run into the forest and hide)
Krugrak: HOOWAH! (English/Common: Hooray!!)
Dan’tub: HOOWAH!! (English/Common: Hooray!!)


On an OOC note I think it is appropriate to assume that the bridges and docks leading into the city are not fully broken and can be crossed very carefully. Maybe a railing with a slight ledge still remains. or a narrow plank still holds strong. Either way the bridges need to be repaired and in the mean time it will be close to impossible to get any large amount of supplies into or out of the city across the bridges or through the docks though reasonably fit individuals can come and go with some care.
At tonights Tavern night I will offer my services. This may be that the people of Vesper are in fear and need weapons to hunt orcs more effectively. Or armor to protect themselves from orcs. To ship goods from an alternate port such as my Red Fang Pointe. Or help rebuilding the bridges. Either way my services will not come free.
