For months, reports of Orc attacks have come from all over the North Lands. The Kingdom of Vanis is all that stands between these wild creatures and the easily pillaged lands to the south.
The King has put out a call to arms, conscripting any who would put their life on the line in defense of the realm.
The players attempt to defend the River Keep, but against such overwhelming numbers, they are forced to retreat. But not before killing many times their number, and bearing witness to the disturbing reality of the Orks leader, a huge cybernetically augmented warrior wielding what he called a “Shoota”. They are rewarded for their bravery, then aid the refugees fleeing further south.
Eventually, they are pushed all the way down to the city of Vanis itself, where they are soon trapped within… surrounded by the green horde outside!
