The dungeon underneath our house, part III

There I was, a dead orc. Overcome by a vast number of enemies.

Until by some magical occurence I was up and running again. Never question a magic occurence, whether it is called a healing surge or the spellplague or I know not what.

A little worse for wear, but hopping about like nobody’s business. That’s me. But of course there was still the little matter of the vast number of enemies that surrounded me. Guess what happened next?

Exactly.

I hopped back into the secret tunnel again, confident that at the other end nothing so dangerous would await me. You may call it naive, I call it optimistic.

And rightly so. A single annoying, backstabbing goblin. I dealt with it quickly and turned around in order to get away from my old friends: the drake, the spirit and the drow, who were all coming to get me.

In order to get away I had to cross the bridge over the underground river. On the other side a swarm of poisonous spiders was awaiting me. Urgh. I like them roasted with a nice mushroom relish, but not this very lively variety.

Still, the gruesome alternative was closing in behind me. Much too close for my own liking. So I did what a clever orc always does (when no one else is watching).

He runs like hell.

See, how fast I am? Past the confused swarm of spiders, as if my wives were after me. Very good exercise, actually, being hunted by one’s own wives.

So I made my escape. All’s well that ends well.

That was a nice little adventure, much better than reading a book. I have to admit though, that I am not used to it anymore, all this running and hopping and fighting. Need to get back down into the dungeon more often. Now that I know it is there, I shall go at least once a week. Twice. Alright, three’s the charme.

But for now I am back with my human and she lets me have a well deserved dive into the sweets box.

No, I am not getting fat.

I AM NOT GETTING FAT!

The dungeon underneath our house, part II

Here we are again.

Remember? I got bored with my human and started digging beneath the house we live in. Found an entrance to a dungeon. Naturally, I couldn’t resist and immediately began to explore.

Not too far into the tunnel I came upon some obstacles. And then some more.

wp-1516978835427..jpgI was surrounded by creatures of the underdark. Normally, that wouldn’t bother me much, what with being an orc and all that. But in this case I had no idea whether the monsters underneath our house were of the same variety as the ones I used to fight back home. Continue reading The dungeon underneath our house, part II

The dungeon underneath our house, part I

Gather round, folks, I gotta tell you a story of how I discovered an adventurous dungeon underneath the house in which I currently live with my human. Speaking of said human, I suspect she wanted to keep all the fun to herself, which is why she never told me about this dungeon. Ha! Gotcha.

So, on this fine and not very sunny day I went down into the basement in order to explore. Doing this without my fellow orcs is a new experience but I take what I get.

Dungeon 1
And here I am.

I just arrived at the bottom of a ladder that someone had left there for my own convenience. Thanks, lad. Continue reading The dungeon underneath our house, part I

The orcish side of blogging

Orc on a bottle

My human suggested that I should blog in a more conventional way but also revealing more of my orcish side. I do not need to tell you that she-human is full of those contradictions. And yet, I listened (partially) and did some research on what a proper blog should contain. Now I only need to fill it with the orcish spirit and that’s it then.

My research provided me with the following topics with which I might regale you over the course of the next couple of months. Perhaps you favor some over the others to read about? Let me know. So, here we go: Continue reading The orcish side of blogging

Orc on a Quest

O tempora o miracula!

My human finally seems to see how badly she treated me lately, i.e. complemonsterstely ignored me. This weekend she has some spare time, as it is a special one for many humans, they’re all celebrating the fact that their spiritual leader was put on a stick 2,000 years ago. I have met with one of those spiritual guys a few years ago, it was strange to say the least.

Anyway, we’re spending time together. I was desperate for a proper adventure and for once she indulged me. This is how it went:
