You all hear about the fact that there are a lot of Orcs running around in the forest around the city. Some feel that there are soo many that a invasion may soon come. Many of the local farmers grumble about the town militia not doing enough to protect their herds and livelihood. Some are hoping that the orcs go away while others feel maybe the orcs will run the city better.
You hear about the ruins that are south and a bit east of the city About a day and half ride being haunted. They say that mages believe there are some nice magical item possibly in there. They say the mages do not go there because of a possible beast in the lower chambers. Some say it is a dragon others say a lizard and others say there is nothing there and it was picked clean many years ago.
On the notice board for those who can read the town is offering 20 gold for each orc head brought in. (some are looking at the half orcs a little strangely). The board has a notice that the town north, Nevestral, is looking for some adventures to find the Orc Stronghold. Nevestral is a eight day ride north. There is also a notice for caravan guards. A caravan wanting to head north is looking for three to six guards to protect it as it heads north to Nevestral thru orc filled forests. The offer 200 gold each. !00 to hire on the balance to be paid after arriving safely to Nevestral.
