Getting Stoned With Orcs

Current Adventure: Homebrew

Rolen Moonshadow (Remy) - wood elf ranger of the Emerald Enclave
Mojo ar Meisce (David) - human monk
Saarkson (Paul) - tiefling warlock and Zhent agent
Rogar Lighttalon (Adam) - dwarf cleric and member of the Order of the Gauntlet

The party decided to make it's way to Neverwinter to purchase a wagon to transport the green dragon corpse. While on the road they were ambushed by a party of orog's led by a wereboar. The group were raiders of the Broken Tusk tribe (which the party has had previous dealings with).

Rolen used his woodland skills to track the group back to their lair (he also discovered drag marks, as well as giant and 8-legged reptilian foot prints). The tracks led to a cave. They discovered a camouflaged catapult near it (the source of the drag marks). They entered the cave and fought several orogs. Rolen scouted ahead and found that the chieftain and shaman were waiting on him. The group were bottle-necked and after fighting for a bit decided to retreat back into the initial cabin. This lead to a bit of a stalemate.

The party decided to leave the cave and take a short rest in the nearby woods. The orcs didn't pursue, knowing their ettin ally would return soon.

The party didn't do the best job hiding during their rest and the ettin and his pet basilisk quickly noticed them. Rogar commanded the ettin to halt and Saarkson hit it with a fireball. Rolen hit him with two rounds of colossus slayer and the ettin didn't have a chance. Unfortunately for the party Rolen and Rogar met the gaze of the basilisk (and failed both their saving throws).

The night ended with Saarkson and Mojo dragging their stoney companions towards Neverwinter.

This was the first time I was able to use my Dwarven Forge cavern tiles and they look great. I can't wait to pick more up.
