Subject     The Search for Kin

The harsh chill winds stung his backside as he marched across the frozen
wastelands of Icewall. He had lived in seclusion all his life, never knowing
his mother or another of his kin. Anyone or anything he had ever met he had
killed, such was the way of survival in these frozen planes his worst enemy
of them all. Across his back was a massive axe from a large lizard creature
he had found half frozen in the snow. Trudging through the almost waist deep
snow, not a moan or grunt of complaint for his body accustomed to plowing
through the snow it was just another day, but today he had a bit of spring
in his steps a purpose. Today was the day Kamafal was to leave Icewall, to
find his Kin... or some more creatures to kill. Noticing the sun ever slowly
but constantly moving to set Kamafal quickened his pace, He had to make the
passes soon, within a few days they would be blocked by hundreds of tons of
snow, making it nearly impassible if not difficult for this massive ogre. 

Night had fallen and the temperatures had dropped,  most creatures would not be able to function or move in such frigid conditions but it didn't seem to bother Kamafal much his skin thickened to a degree that the deadly chills
could not settle into his body, this very same skin that saved his life over and over again acting as a second armour per say. Many a foe believing they had finally received an opening in the ogre's
defense would slash, hack or stag towards an opening to see they have barely bruised or scratched their foe, moments later they would lay there for eternity pondering what had happened as their head lay split.
Kamafal came to a hault, Looking in the distance he smiled... the first signs of civilization lay in the horizon below him. Kamafal did not know the name of the place he saw in the distance or who lived there, but it was a start. 
His strength renewed Kamafal shouldered his packs once again, he would skip camping out tonight... A long ways he still had ahead of him.

He stood before a large sign staked into the road... the large written
letters where barely legible not that it would of meant anything to Kamafal.
Kamafal knew no written language, or spoken language for that matter. He
knew the language of battle, he knew death cries, cries of anguish and war
cries. So what did the large letters spelling out 'Tarsis' mean to him?
Walking closer to the city Kamafal noticed that many things along the path
were extremely burnt... more burnt then any fire Kamafal has ever seen
caused. Only pausing for a moment Kamafal continued on down the path. 

Horns blew an alarm... A warning. Already an arrow protruded from kamafal's
thick hide. As soon as he had approached the gates, someone called out to
him in a language he did not understand... so not knowing to heed he
continued towards the gate when an arrow struck his upper left thigh, then
the horns blew. Clenching his fist he slammed it down on the arrow smashing
it a sunder, not even grunting in pain. Creatures swarmed out of the
gates... Kamafal had never seen this many people in one time, there must
have been twenty of them. Lizard creatures, pink skinned men, of which had
seen before in his days in Icewall but there were others short green
creatures that almost resembled himself but weaker, in sufferer. A big grin
revealing kamafal's large tusks spread across his face, he loved a
challenge. Letting out his loud feral battle cry, he unslung his axe and
started towards his opponents, one of the pink skinned men started a head of
the crowd and started talking in his language none of which Kamafal
understood. "Stand down ogre, or you will face the wrath of the dragonar..."
He never had a chance to finish whatever he was saying to Kamafal for his
head lay on the ground. The others of the group in alarm drew their weapons
and swarmed Kamafal, surrounding him leaving no room for escape. Never has
Kamafal retreated nor had a need to escape... Stepping forward he started
swinging his axe with no particular style other then complete brute force.
With one sweep of his axe he cleaved one of the pink skinned men in half
armour and all, and felled another nearby lizard in the same sweep. Felling
a sharp stinging sensation across his back Kamafal turned around blocking
another stick with his axe well at the same time pushing outwards putting
the small green creature on his back another ran towards his letting go of
his axe with one hand he grabbed the creature by the neck and lifted him of
the ground strangling his life-force out of him while swinging his axe in
large arcs keeping the others at bay. They stood back in amazement that a
creature could even wield an axe that large in one hand. It was short
lasted, they swarmed forward again. Something drove hard into his knee
bringing him down to his knees, seeing the opportunity another crashed their
sword into the top his kamafal's head. The creature in his hands ceased to
struggle but Kamafal just clenched harder another weapon drew into him.
Slowly losing consciousness he swung his axe again cleaving a leg from
another, not sure which creature though for everything was becoming blurry.
Another creature finally put an end to the fight with a hard drive to the
top of the ogres head with his hammer. Kamafal feel to the ground. To the
people he was dead, but in reality he was just badly hurt.

Subject     Surprising findings all around

A crackle from the nearby campfire awoke Kamafal. Slowly coming to his
senses, he gave a great toothy yawn and stretched out leisurely. A small
kick in his side ended his few moments of pleasure, quickly opening his
eye's looking for what danger might befall on him. His thoughts were short
lived for the face of Ainuna hovered above him, a fond smile found its way
across his face "Ugh, Hi Ainuna" and pausing for a moment before continuing
"It night still, should you not be out hunting pockets?". 

Scowling Ainuna kicked Kamafal in the side again, a look of fondness also
appearing in her facial features, "Get up you great lunk head" her hand
slowly patting something at her side "I have... 'Found' something that will
help us." 

Intrigued Kamafal quickly pushed his great weight off the ground, slowly
following behind Ainuna to a large rock being used as a makeshift table.
Pulling out a large piece of parchment Ainuna spread it across the crude
table. Peering over Ainuna's shoulders, Kamafal began to take a greater
interest. 

"Stop starring over my shoulders you lout!! Come over here and look at
this." Nodding Kamafal walked across and stood on the opposite side of the
large rock table. Peering down once again, Kamafal started analyzing a very
large detailed map. Looking up confused, Kamafal shrugged at Ainuna not
understanding. "You really can be thick! This map will help us find your
ogre people!" Nodding with understanding, visibly quaking with excitement
Kamafal barely caught Ainuna's words "So here is where I figure you crossed
over from Icereach" She pointed just west of a place labeled Zeriak, "And
this is the route you took, at least that I can figure to reach Tarsis." She
quickly traced a line from Icereach to Tarsis. "And here we are now" Ainuna
pointed to a non-labeled location just east of Tarsis. 

"So what now?" Kamafal impatiently cut in.

"Sheesh you big lunk head, always cutting directly to the point, " Chuckling
Ainuna pointed to a place darkly labeled Bloten in a region called Blode.
"This is said to be the land of the Ogres... Not that many have ever came
back alive" 

Kamafal nodded, "Then its where I go!" Slowly nodding Ainuna corrected
Kamafal, "Were WE go you mean, you lunk headed oaf. You're my favorite lunk
head and where I go, you go and where you go I go. And don't you ever forget
it." 

Kamafal slowly backed away smiling knowing Ainuna's temper, he knew better then to oppose, "I go pack then..." Kamafal turned and walked toward his And Ainuna's Cavern. Smiling to herself Ainuna followed after.

---------------Meanwhile in Neraka---------------

A large ogre adorned in green Dragonarmy armour stood with his partner guard
at each side of a large wooden door. Peering down the hallway he saw a human
dressed in red Dragonarmy armour walking quickly towards him, and was
standing before him in a few quick moments. The middle aged human saluted
and the ogre and his companion saluted back in return. "What business do you
have with Highlord Luerk?" 

The human Straightened and returned "I have interesting reports from Tarsis
that the Highlord might want to be aware of." Nodding the ogre motioned for
his partner to stand in front of the door as he knocked and quickly entered
the highlord's quarters. Looking across the room Luerk could be seen sitting
behind an enormous wooden desk with his head bowed over the many pages of
paperwork in front of him. "Yes?" Luerk asked without looking up. 

"A red officer is here to report to you from Tarsis" The ogre jerked his
thumb towards the door. Looking up for a moment Luerk nodded "Let him enter"
nodding the ogre opened the door allowing the human in and taking leave to
stand outside the door. 

"Greetings Highlord" The Officer saluted, "I bear news from Tarsis..." The
office then began his tale of the gigantic ogre who had slaughtered many of
their men and had himself been dealt many a death blow to only be reported
seen limping away from Tarsis with a goblin companion. Luerk nodding walked
over to the door and closed it. The ogre guard nudged his companion, "You
hear that?" His partner grinned and nodded. 


That night word about Kamafal started to spread among the higher ranked of the Dragonarmies and also among the ogres.

Subject     Back to life

Pain darted through his head, a high frequency wistle screamed through
his brain as he opened his eyes staring directly at the soft morning sky.
Trying to move pain shot down throughout his whole body. Kamafal was still
in disbelief that the silver man had bested him in combat 1 on 1. Thinking
back on it he grew furious, Ignoring his many pains and injuries he rolled
onto his stomach and slowly pushed himself off the ground looking about for
signs of friends or foes. Seeing neither about, standing to his full height
kamafal roared. Knowing that he did not have the energy to start off
insearch of ainuna he looked to the ground to see his crossbow and axe
laying where he had been downed. Kamafal would need food and water... and a
place to rest safe. Throwing his axe over his should with relative ease
considering his many injuries, kamafal loaded his crossbow and lumbered off
into the nearby forest insearch for food and rest. 

slowly raising the crossbow kamafal waited with a new found patience, he had
one bolt and he needed food. a doe stood maybe 10 yards from his position,
surprised the creature had not heard him kamafal ment to make the best of
this situation. Raising the cross bow to eye level kamafal held his breath
to steady his aim. 

Click.

The doe had lowered it head at the last moment to graze on some grass. The
bolt flew harmlessly past lodging itself in a unknown location. Roaring with
furry and frustration kamafal through his axe in anger.

Thump. Raising his head, kamafal had heard a wet crushing sound. Looking to
where the doe had stood kamafal saw it laying on the ground the axe lodged
in its body. Gasping, he didnt even realise where he had thrown his axe in
anger. lumbering over to the doe, pulling his axe free. Kamafal smiled, also
noting a small stream hidden by a bush beside the doe. His wounds where
draining him of his strength so kamafal quickly went to work cleaning the
deer and drinking his share of water . Lying down behind the bushes hours
later, his stomach full kamafal quickly fell asleep tommorow he would start
looking for Ainuna.

A small signal fire to the west of the city brought a wide smile to
kamafal's face. Ainuna had done her part. When planning out the issues they
would have ransacking the village Ainuna and Kamafal had quickly found a few
resolutions, They couldn't afford high casualties and goblins burned and
killed before they stopped to think about the precious loot they could have
gained if they hadn't of burned it all. There plan, Ainuna would have the
stealthy squad eliminate guards at the gates and raid all valuables before
Kamafal and his large squad of hobgoblins and goblins destroyed the
village.

Kamafal looked at all his warriors hidden in the thick bushes before the
city "Everyone weapons drawn it's our turn to have some fun." Kamafal
whispered, "No noise until we are inside the city!"

Kamafal and their warriors sprung to their feet and ran silently towards the
city, with enough noise to wake or alert anyone who would be guarding the
city yet no alarms sprung. Ainuna had done her work well. Kamafal smiled
this would be easy. 

The village hadn't even stood a chance half of its inhabitants where dead
before the other had awaken. And that second half barely put up a meager
fight. Kamafal himself had counted 40 kills for himself. They left none
alive man women and child lay slaughtered in the streets, homes and even
beds. 

"What do we do now master Kamafal?" ask a slimly looking goblin.

"Burn." And with that Kamafal walked out of the city as large billows of smoke raised towards the sky.

Subject     A thirst for blood.

A loud shriek... CAWWWWWH!

Pain... Everywhere pain...

REVENGE... I'm alive...

Slowly I open my eyes... A dark cloudy sky... Vultures circling, the smell
of urine clogs the air... smoke billowing from all over. I turn my head... a
massacre. Hundreds of dead goblins and hob-goblins littered the ground blood
and gore everywhere. No movement, no survivors... well one survivor. One
pissed off angry survivor. 

It had been his first outing as a squad commander for the dragon armies;
they had given him command over approximately 150 - 200 pitiful goblins and
hob-goblins, barely separated from their bitch mothers. They were his
though; a sense of pride going through my mind was the last thing before we
were ambushed... 

"Commander, there seems to be no resistance ahead... Our queen has sent us
on a fool's mission!" A larger hob-goblin barked out to me. He was smart I
guess for a gobbo, still I can't have this kind of talk!

Thawk! My backhand sent him sprawling across the ground "Don't question our
queen maggot! Question her or my orders again those will be your last
words!" well they were his last words...

Arrows filled the sky. The first one finding a home in my hob-goblin scout's
soft throat, a second later half my squad was dead. With one arrow deep in
my shoulder and another in my thigh, I ignored the pain and roared,
"AMBUSH!! Defensive positions!" It was pointless another barrage of arrows,
one whistled by my face another blocked by my large horses body. Bunkering
down behind the horse to wait for the assault to cease I heard a loud whines
of horses, hooves beating across the ground, "STAND, draw your weapons,
Fight for your lives!" The arrows stopped and instantly out from the cover
of the forest Hundreds of knights dressed in heavy armour broke from the
trees. Solamnics! Loath and hate clouded my vision... I charged... It was
hopeless. 

Cawwwwh!

Snapping out of my trance... I rolled onto my stomach and pushed up... Pain
shot through my body... I collapsed... Growling I pushed up again, ignored
the pain... I'm on my knees good... looking around the world was spinning...
I started to feel sick... STOP! You are not some weak pitiful creature! My
vision started to return... stumbling to my feet I looked around. My
suspicions were confirmed all dead. No survivors. Raising my head to the sky
I roared in defiance; 

"ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!"

Blood curdling, chilling and angry! If anyone was around they would be running. Looking down to the ground, I smile. A bloody mouth full of broken teeth and two large tusks... I am alive revenge will be sweet.

"Don't move a muscle ogre" The voice snaked into my head waking me from
my slumber. Grumbling I swatted at the annoying noise, then to my surprise a
sharp prick formed on my throat. Alarmed I opened my eyes. Elf.

"That's right wake up vermin! Don't make a single move or it will be your
last." Glaring I shifted my eyes from side to side, Stupid little Elfies
everywhere... Shifting my eyes back to the speaker I growled and pushed my
neck closer to the blade. Apparently thrown off guard a bit the elf took a
step back. All I need, quickly throwing my arms up, snatching the blade in
my hand. The elf quickly jerked away as quick as he could. Pain. The knife
had severed one of my fingers off, ignoring the pain I quickly lept onto the
elf and dragged him to the ground. The other elves quick jolting into action
jumped up and sprinted over to my location. Grabbing me the attempted to
pull me off my victim, That wasn't going to happen. Hammering my fists down
on the tiny creature's chest I smiled at the sickening crunches I was
making. Finally wanting to to finish my pray off I bite down hard onto its
throat my tusks slicing through, pulling my head up gore flew everywhere and
the elves screamed in fury. 

CRACK

Pain... The back of my head throbbed immensely.

CRACK

Darkness, pain and darkness...

I dreamed of my homeland, Cold, Barren, Deadly. I dreamed of hunting down
ice bears and wrestling them down to the ground and feeding on their warm
thick blood, curling up in their warm carcass to avoid the storms. I
remember the respect the walrus people gave me, No interfering with me... I
after all killed their leader. 

The two axes smashed together! The massive ogre, dwarfed by the large tusked
walrus creature struggled in a game of strength, locked together in combat.
Thinking quickly the ogre kicked quickly into the walrus mans gentiles.
Roaring in pain the walrus man fell back, The ogre quickly raised his axe in
the air and heaved down. The walrus man seeing danger raised his axe up to
block the blow. Sparks blew everywhere and the axe went flying. Unarmed the
walrus man quickly plowed into the ogre driving him to the ground,
attempting to gore the now also unarmed ogre. Grabbing onto the large tusks,
The ogre used all his strength to keep the tusks from piercing his
unprotected skin, It seemed to be a losing battle. One of the tusks pressed
hard into his chest slowly sliding in a trickle of blood slide out from the
point of entering. Roaring in defiance the ogre used the last of his
strength, Muscles bulging and one quick jerk he snapped off one of the tusks
as the other slide through his shoulder. Screaming in pain the ogre slammed
the walrus-man's own tusk deep into its head. Blood splattered everywhere
and the heavy body of his opponent dropped down lifeless. 

They respected him, wanted him to lead them... He was a loaner then...

"Wake up Ogre!"

Ahh yes, now time to deal with those elves.
