Jorann, time is short and much is happening, so I will be brief.
A great battle has been won. We found a town that had been controlled by the orcs. Apparently they had kidnapped the whole town’s women and children, and were forcing them to help the orcs with their raids. We uncovered their duplicity and promised to help them free their people. We crossed back into Irecia while the townsfolk prepared to follow.
We attacked some scouts, but one got away and warned them we were coming. They were prepared and quite numerous. Things looked bleak, but just in the nick of time, the townsfolk caught up with us, and with the reinforcements we defeated the orcs and freed the townsfolk. Much plunder was taken. We took some gold to pay for our expenses and vowed to turn the rest over to the Marshal.
A glorious battle! I will report again soon.
May Tangadorin’s light shine upon you always,
Your servant in His Light,
