The evening ends in a feast in honor of the team.

Day 4

The team is blessed in the local temple, and sets out to establish goodwill by smiting orcs. Following the tracks from the last village to be pillaged, the team comes upon the forest where the orc raiding party has returned into.

Day 5

Caine is detached for a scouting mission of a location suspected to be the home of an orc-shaman. The remaining three search out the holy ground and engage the shaman and her orcs. In the ensuing melee 7 orcs and two wargs were killed and the shaman rendered unconcious but was dragged from the battle by her warg familiar. The team tracks her by her staff, and tries to teleport to cut her off. The teleport misfires and the team is delivered to another part of the forest.

The team returns to the orc village and plans the assault. The hut of the chief is assaulted and both the shaman and the chief is defeated after a supringsingly short fight. The team retreats with the bounties.
