The Orc’s Cache

The Orc’s Cache

As told by Trif Teak


28th of Eleasis

Taking a chance to rest, Ellumin and Trif hole-up in the small room within the Orc's Cache, uncertain what enemies may still be hunting them from above and below. Rested, they make their way back up to the first level which has partially flooded with an amber colored liquid. Lighting a small candle for the first time they discover curious markings along all the walls, something they couldn't see before in the gray world of their darkvision. Now more than ever Ellumin and Trif feel this old Orc Cache isn't for them. However as Trif tries and tries again to climb up the rotting vines to the outside world she hears the deadly whispers and moans of a foe unseen.

Something snaps, she's had it. It's time to stop running and she heads back to confront her foe only to discover it's not a hideous cave troll but the hauntings of a Specter, a long since dead creature prevented from moving into the afterlife. Dealing several 'Thunderwave' blows the ghostly entity retreats further into the dungeon as Ellumin and Trif take chase. Two levels lower they manage to corner the Specter in an Octagon shaped horror room of hanging corpses and a strange floor of a thousands holes. Dealing the final blow to the Specter, Ellumin joins Trif on the small round dais in the center of the room, only to trigger a cage falling around them as the thousand little holes start to loose the same amber colored liquid that had flooded many of the higher rooms.
