We finally returned to town with the spell components. We came across some sort of ooze one the way, but it was nothing to destroy it.
The town guard were training the locals in anti goblin fighting. It turns out that the local Orcs and Gnolls were fighting and it was the goblin’s territory that the were fighting in. I made some long spears for them. We then set out to attack the Orcs base of operations. We came across a small Orc camp. Aylen and myself charged in on horseback. Jin also charged in, while Luke, Zul, and Asher supported from range with their spells. After destroying the defenders, which included some Kobolds, we determined that several Orcs fled. So we were forced to hunt them down.
They tried to ambush us. This group also had an Ogress with them as well. Not that it did them much good. While she rang my shield like a gong, she fell as well.
Both groups were enslaving the Kobolds (and the Ogress) using some sort of magic.
We will need to do more damage to the Orcs to weaken them enough so they can be driven out of the area.
