    I suppose if you're willing to help, we could use all the help we could get. Luna admits.

    Gulan looks at Kunal for guidance. The black robed orc makes a theatrical shrug. <"You are jejay not me. It's your decision.">

    Gulan looks pained. <"This is a thing. This is a thing that is happening to me. Storm, why is this thing happening to me?">

    Again Kunal makes the same overly theatrical shrug.

    Gulan speaks in Common. "I suppose we could use more eyes. Welcome to our band. We leave in a few hours, I think?"

    Kirk - High Elf Monk/Wiz

    Kirk gives a respectful bow to the wizened orc.

    Thank you, I am sure you will not regret this decision. I will go speak with the caravan master to receive what was promised me and then return. I will be back within the hour.

    He then respectfully makes his exit.

    [I don't really want to role play the exchange with the caravan master. Would prefer to just say I went and did it, and am back with the band when they are readying to move out.]

    Clara Starflower—half-elf bard

    "I also need to check in with the caravan before moving forward," adds Clara, "but I look forward to joining you, and learning more about this pilgrimage you are on."

    She goes with Kirk to check in with the caravan master.

    Agreed on skipping the caravan RP, this has taken enough time. I'm ready to see what's ahead.

    There's not really a ceremony when the orcs leave the town. Just Gulan running around like a chicken with it's head cut off for a few hours before everyone seems to be packed.

    The orcish leader stands at the head of the group and waves a hand. <"Forward to our lands!"> He calls out. And once more in Common.

    The caravan picks its way south following no specific trail. The first orcish migration in a century has begun.

    What troubles will come their way?

    Zigbar is completely oblivious to his surroundings as he sequesters himself in one of the caravans and continues tinkering on his beloved Thunder Monger.

    His precious. Something that his rival Zehanort will never be able to replicate. Never!

    Kirk passes the time when not actively guarding the procession in discussion with the more elderly members of the orc group inan effort to learn as much as he can about their traditions and customs, taking frequent notes when conditions permit.

    Bek'kuh- Half-Orc Druid

    How exactly do you approach people you yelled at within seconds of meeting them?

    Well, in Bek'kuh's case, the answer seemed to be "awkwardly hover what you hope is a respectful distance away and pray they notice you first."

    She's not sure if the... bluer elf notices her (his name was said a few times. Something with a K. Or at least a hard C) but she's more intrigued by the girl elf- not only because they exchanged slightly more words, but there was also something achingly familiar about her. How her features were less... stereotypically Elven than an elf's should be. It felt as though nature had led her to something of a kindred spirit.

    Chapter Two

    <Once we were many, we ruled the plains with wolf and sword. The One Eye came to us and said "we can be the greatest of the peoples." So we listened. The sea folk grew frightened of our strength and destroyed us. Now we must walk our lands forevermore.>
    Orcish oral history.

    The journey is not strenuous, the orcs walk at the speed of their slowest member. It's only been five days since they have been on the new journey, but they appear to be able to do this forever.

    Scouts have reported howling wolves over the course of the last night or two. When asked Gulan and Kunal just look at each other gravely.

    Today the advance scout see one, now two, now ten;

    Giant dire wolves, each ridden by an orcish warrior.

    Well, this took a turn.

    Bek'kuh- Half-Orc Druid

    The grip on her staff tightens as she hears the howls. They sound deeper than usual. Bigger, even.

    Hwr suspicions are confirmed when nearly a dozen orcs riding wolves approach them.

    From what she understands, these Wolf Riders were what humans saw when they saw orcs. What her tribe used to be like, even, before settling and making peace.

    Still, there wasnt much for it. She approaches in a friendly manner, taking a few steps ahead.

    {Hail, brothers! And sisters. Siblings!} She begins in Orcish. {And well met.}

    Yeah. That should go over well.

    Kunal leans down to Zigbar. "Not exactly the same tribe. The Riders are a bit more, what's the Common phrase 'old guard'."

    One huge wolf pads forward effortlessly. It doesn't seem to care about the extra weight on it's back. The rider is festooned in leather and metal. He glares at Bek'kuh. "{Hail and well met sister.}" his scorn is clear. Oh, right; Wolf Riders are patrilineal. Crud. "{What is the meaning of this band? Why do you walk our lands? Where is your chieftain, little girl?}"

    Bek'kuh- Half-Orc Druid

    She was no stranger to the contempt of others- he was used to it, from her time among humans. It was novel to see it coming from one of her own kind, especially when growing up, she was never seen as paricularly lady-like. She meets his glare with a blank stare of her own.
