Sacrifice: A Damsel in Distress and her Knight In Roasted Armor

Sir.

As it were, the Prevalian Moongate was being particularly plagued this recent evening by the likes of Orc kin. It was here that Sir Loathar encountered the Orcs attempting to take a lady in the finest of pink dresses as a hostage as he was passing by. But lo, he was not alone, for the brave Sir John Mitchell was present as well, as he too just happened to be passing by and witnessed his fellow knight negotiating himself in trade for the woman the orcs were taking as a captive.




The damsel being cut free, Sir Loathar nodded to Sir John Mitchell as a way of telling him to let this happen until the lady was safe. John pursued close behind the orcs and their hostage. West and North they dragged this knight as his brother stayed on their heels...




These orcs were clever, and found an old tomb along what some call the road of kings that they hid their hostage in. They beat him bloody so he had not the strength to resist, and tied him to a sarcophagus inside as they tried to distract the knight they sensed tracking them...




And yet, the knight was able to find the fight inside of himself after a few blunt blows to his head to free himself... Could this be his moment of escape?!...




Unfortunately not... for Sir Loathar was badly beaten and disarmed, found not far up the road by his captors limping and injured...




It was then that the Orcs had decided to take this knight back to the town of Prevalia where they knew the guards were being distracted by more orc forces at the Eastern and Southern gates... they had planned to execute this knight in public. As they dragged their hostage along, the Orcs were unable to dispatch Sir John Mitchell and he made an attempt to free his brother knight, but alas, his arrow could not find its target this time. Sir Loathar fell to the ground, and briefly told John in a low voice so that the Orcs could not hear him, "Get Le'Strat..." before he was dragged back to his feet by the brute strength of the Orc leading him...




The orcs took Sir Loathar to a tree in the center of Prevalia and tied him up where they began to torture him before carrying out their final plan of execution as helpless citizens and shopkeepers watched in horror. It started with tickles, and then a noogie followed by a bloody wedgie that would scar the eyes of any onlooker watching this terrorizing scene unfold. The knight's cries were heard in a painful anguish as he became delirious from not only the loss of blood, but the excruciating pain that the orcs seemed to have made into an art form...




Suddenly, the orcs heard the clanking of metal as John Mitchell once more approached, with another knight.... Le'Strat Durant.. The "Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz" of the Knight's when it comes to orc killin'. Fearing the possibility of the townspeople joining these knights to overthrow their party of nightmarish tortures, the orcs quickly re-bound their hostage and fled to their cave with him through a moongate. Seeing this, John and Le'Strat pursued the orcs before the moongate could close and found themselves at the Bloodrock Clan Orc's cave, but did not see Sir Loathar anywhere....




The orcs distracted the Knights outside of their cave as they stripped down Sir Loathar and began to cook him alive. His screams of delirious agony could be heard outside when he passed out from the pain....




As it was reported, the mighty "love hammer" (as Le'Strat Durant has dubbed it) crashed through the forked tongued orcs at the cave entrance and made a daring rescue of their fellow knight, barely alive, in a fell swoop of valor and camaraderie. The orcs were no match for John's bow and Durant's great hammer and were lucky to be spared as the knight's knew they didn't have the time to dispatch these foul creatures, but instead had to get their brother knight to a healer. Fortunately, just North of the orc cave is a known caravan to many adventurers and occupied by, thus, very experienced healers who could mend Loathar's wounds.... were the knights not sooner to rescue their brother, and the orcs just a bit more clever, John Mitchell and Le'Strat Durant very well may have been enticed into a meal by the orcs that in fact, would have been "knights pie".....



Huzzah Bloodrock Clan - good fun! :D Til next time, you savages!!
