    As it were, the Knight’s Guild had been on a crusade with the Orcish clans of this realm, namely the Shadowclan, who had refused to convert their tribe to Virtuism in order to live alongside man-kind peacefully. The response of the orcish clans was unanimous; war. And so it has been, war, for the past several years.

    The Knight’s Guild had secured territories in the valley through countless battles that led to the prospecting and mining of the Orcish Caves that would yield some of Britannia’s finest metals to supply the Knights troops with armaments. Night and day, the Knights battled the Orcs and pushed them farther and farther into the caves as their excavators and miners gathered the strongest and rarest of metals, deeper and deeper into the earth.

    General Rick Steves led the armies into the caves so deep that the air was hard to breathe and the Orcs there seemed to be of a somewhat different ilk. The orcs this deep appeared to have never seen the light of day and adapted to their subterranean environment; blind to light but ultra-sonic hearing allowed them to pose as a most formidable foe for the Knights ranks. However, this did not stop the crusade from persevering to the lowest bowels of the caverns where very few men, if any, have seen and lived to tell about it. This lair, at it’s bottomless pits, was a forsaken den of evil. Orcs seemed to appear out of the walls, as if there were innumerable tunnels lining the cavern’s passage ways that allowed them to flood in from unknown origins.

    The Commander, Sir Rendlesham, had ordered the General and his Captains to cleanse the caves, as it has been postulated that the caves were the breeding grounds of the Orcs, and if their culture had denied and disallowed peace, then they themselves had chosen genocide instead of a peaceful existence alongside man-kind; the Knights would destroy all of the Orcs within the caves and effectively stop them from breeding, ultimately winning the war once the surface dwelling tribes were dealt with and ensuring the safety of all Britannians from the threat of the Orcs.

    However, this was the moment that had forced the Knights to call upon the denizens of Britannia, the same people they aimed to protect, to aid them in stopping something that they had not foreseen… They had awoken something ancient, evil and nearly unstoppable… Gruumsh!

    In their excavating, the Knights indeed did find the source of where the Orcs were multiplying; the one the orcs call the “Blood God”… His might was unparalleled and hate for man-kind too strong for the Knights to withstand alone. Forced to retreat, the General and remaining men urgently carried the bodies of their dead back to the surface, out of the caves, and to the healers in hopes of saving their souls… It is now, this moment, that the Knight’s Guild and all of Britannia calls upon YOU, travelers, to uphold the Virtues as the Avatars of this world and stop the impenetrable force that lies deep within the bowels of the Orc Caves! Gruumsh awaits those brave enough who would reap the rewards of purifying the wicked should they succeed! Huzzah!

    New Champion Spawn!

    Har! dat bobhosh uruk! Dem oomies git klomp'd ded by dem urks en der klan. Dem oomies nub gruk da kihagh en Iggju ub da bluudgod!!

    (wow!. you have to admit, that Gruumsh is a pretty fine specimen of orc. I'm guessing more folks will show up to worship at his feet than to actually show up and get to harm him, Such a glorious orcish specimen replete with slaves and minions. All hail the glory, wisdom, bloodlust and might of the blood god! )

    HOOWAH!

    @Swayze in the fort there are few decor items that might be cool rare drops. Just normal decor that is colored blood red. Might be cool spawn specific rare drops.

    Very neat. Should definetly stay no mount and think this was a great idea. Our orc friends should be able to have even more fun in their dungeon. I'm excited to have some fun!

    *Commander Rendlesham quickly sends a raven to all of the noble and known guilds of the realm asking for their assistance in this war to stop an enemy powerful enough to take over the entire world, converting the world to Orcish rule, if not demise... This is a global threat we must set aside our differences to defend against lest we *all* will die! Huzzah!*

    (OOC: Very super awesome cool addition :D many many thanks for adding this, guys! PLEASE do keep it NO mount zone and no cut.. no recall in/out of any floor of the caves would be pretty awesome too but I can live with the current rules just as they are now :p Thanks again staff, great job!!)

    If it holds true to how the Brutes and Leaders already work. If there is a pet attacking them it will steadily summon creatures to help fight for it
