The Second Darkness
Orc’s from the north dominate the land’s and capture the town of Janden. A few luck people escape and band together to assault and rescue as many of their fellow townsfolk as they can.
Using hit and run tactics the group successfully rescue some of the townsfolk and send them to the capital and hopefully to send reinforcements to deal the the Orc’s.
The group stumbles upon documents and over hear the Orc’s talking about a mysterious and dangerous darkness. They learn after helping an Orc named Nalar that a Orc warlock opened a portal to the shadow plane and released The Shadow, a deity of great power over evil magic. The group has agreed to help Nalar fight this darkness and he gives them a gem so they can call for his aid when the time comes.
