Clara set up teleport back to town. (Left with drunk miner back to town)
Found Orc Barracks/Sleeping quarters. Fought, killed orc and minions. Found various potions / oils in sleeping quarters along with a ritual book and a letter for ‘Gruul’.
Found old stone portal:: [Sorc] able to activate.
Visited following locations:
- desert boulder
- orc lord compound (killed orc caster and minion there – took bodies back to desert)
- back to mine cave
Noticed different locations gave a different “color” to portal. Took teleport circle back to town temple.
Ended back in temple in town, hear “skittering” outside
Orcs using portals to infiltrate mine, Gruul is being tasked to “transform” the villagers in town. Evidence of polymorphism rituals and other dark rituals in area.
Possible that “Gruul” the orc shaman is still at large.
