These Scro (space orcs) were far too intelligent and organized for us to get off this base while commander Urkutz was alive. I’m not a hero by any standard of the word. I’ll be the first to say I’d say my own skin any day of the week, and the only time I get any sort of courage is when I’m trying to bed a woman. I’m a pirate, pure and simple. So this Scro Commander had to die.
With Macradar rampaging around looking for his magic flail and wreaking havoc, a window of opportunity had presented itself. We proceeded to the main command and information collection center of Gamaro base. Who would have thought I’d ever see an orc reading a book! Now I’ve seen everything..
We set about to hacking apart all the Scro priests, and scribes, and captains, as we went on. Any valuable information we collected, we wrote down or memorized. Any paper we found that we did not keep, we burnt. Soon the whole complex was in flames.
An odd thing happened. I happened across a wondrous shield, it allowed me to intercept all magic missiles aimed at my friends, and rendered me immune to fireballs and lightning bolts! I wasn’t feeling heroic and chivalrous before, but think of the stories of my valor that this shield will generate? Think of the women that I will bed! Now the scro War priests only method to defeat us was Hold Person or blunt force trauma… As if that was going to stop us!
Eventually we found the captain, and his bodyguards. I slew the Commander in Single Combat, then in a bloody climax that ended with only the wild mage Cervantes standing at the end (due to him being paralyzed by the priests), turning commander Urkutz’ corpse into a statue, which I promptly smashed upon regaining consciousness.
Now it was time to leave. We found some Kobold tunnels that ran the length of the base, and when we exited near our ship, we saw the War priest Morkitar stood guard over our ship.
Our crew was imprisoned, and my elf woman Lorae was most likely hiding in a fish barrel again. I’d deal with her later.
Now we made our way to the jails, and sure enough we found longbeard and our new crew… I ALSO spied upon a lovely elf maid in prison here… just waiting for me to free her, ravish her, and enslave her again. I’m sure she’ll fetch a tidy sum!
