The Orc smashed his pick against the rock, the crack growing slowly, splinters breaking off, despite the tough vein of iron protecting the newly opened rift in the side of the mountain. The Cataclysm, devestating as it was, had opened this crack, and ever since the Orc had heard whispers directing him into it. Sweat poured thick down his forehead, the mountain fighting against him but still he fought it, the rift widening, only darkness within. Muscles on his arms pulced, as they grew tired from the mining, but determination pulled him on, the lust for knowlage, forfillment. Eventually, as strike followed strike, the rock groaned and gave, a whole section falling away before him, the darnkess swallowing the light in the cave.
Taking a step into the cave the Orc Rammed his pick into a gap in the wall, where it stayed as he took the Axe off his back.
"Who are you."
"My name is Serpi. I will take you to the Soothsayer."
Blinking in the blackness, the orc took another step forward, gripping his axe.
"May I offer my most sincere Apologies."
The Orc felt the knife before he saw it, jabbing into his side, just to the left of his Stomach, raising the axe automatically in defence, swinging it into the blackness.
The Knife game again, but the orc was ready this time, grabbing it with both hands, unfortunately causing him to drop the axe, pressing his palms against the flat on both sides, twisting it out of his attackers hands as it clattered to the floor. Bloodlust striking the orc smashed out, his fist making contact with a hand, stopping it instantly, as the cave began filling with light, his assailent, a female orc, aimed for his wound, the orc twisting out the way, knocking the hand away, driving his elbow into the female's face. But she moved, striking the male who jumped towards the wall, kicking off and swinging down with both fists, ready to hit her over the head. Instead she lent back, the fists swinging short, flinging a knee up towards the groin, but again he moved, ready to swing.
The male Obeyed without thinking, the action supprising him. A stabbing pain hit his side but as he looked, the hole began to close, red blood shooring out as the skin closed.
"You may see the Soothsayer now."
Blinking, for no reason, the orc followed, as the cave opened on the other side, stepping out onto a plateau on the edge of the Mountain, looking down onto felwood. there was a small hut, a smoking blue fire, and a sheer drop off the edge. The Female stepped outside the hut, and gestured for the orc to enter.
The hut was dark, a Sillouette crouching in the far corner. a ray of lite fell just short of him, as he lay five gards face down into the light, each card held by two green thick troll fingers. Quietly the Troll turned the first card, a broken skull on the front. Looking up, the Orc saw two eyes, glinting out the darkness.
