The following is a recollection from Jarock Hammer-Shield, a secluded Ork Weaponsmith. The text remains unaltered to maintain its authenticity. It is written in Or'zet.
New job. Guard true wood gatherers. Hired by Magda Bolg, well-known weaponsmith. With me are Dale Corson
, and Redsun Thandrun
. New guy Malonin Tyrnith
. We travel and guard.
First encounter, found Porcupine Snakes. They liked Juniper
. All three fell on him. Crossed a bridge. Dale
fell in the river. Pulled them out with rope. During true wood gathering, Thorn Men attacked. We fought while Dale
guarded the rest of the gatherers. On return, attacked by Boars. Mean sons of bitches. Nearly removed Juniper
from the fight.
Snakes were easy to kill. Sent one back into the canopy it dropped out of with a hammer swing. Thorn Men, not much of a challenge. Victory through numbers, no injuries. Boars, charging wrecklessly, did the most damage. Dale
bolstered our defenses with Phantom Warriors and gave me Monstrous Mantle. Good Spell Slinger. Well equipped with good armor. Keep for future jobs. Juniper
had knowledge on forest creatures. Prevented further charging. Hid behind Dale
. Bit of a city boy, but decent in the jungle. Mal
, not much info. Does archery, keeps away from the front lines. Slippery and hard to hit. Further evaluation necessary. Redsun
, high damage, almost as much as I do. Great to support offensive operations. We worked well as a team.
No notable peripheral occasions. Attention back to the town in the Servos. Need to find funding. Vralino Hammer-Shield
speaks of a troll weaponsmith, Thorkell Gulbrandsen
. He may know of a funding source.
May forge armor, damage reduction did well for Dale
. Skill only goes so far. Hammer did well. Many big hits. Redsun
happy with crossbow. No work requests from the team. Still hate journals. Weaponsmith, not scholar.
