d30 Challenge: Entry 8

d30 Gonzo Encounters Suitable for
Dungeon Sandbox Crawling Exploration

08. An ork strokes the head of a wounded warg partially trapped in a pit trap; the animal's rear legs are impaled on spikes in the trap. The warg is clearly on death's doorstep and the ork is visibly upset. The ork is armed with a warclub and a jagged falchion; two sawtoothed spears, a warg saddle, and the ork's other equipment are in a loose pile nearby. The ork is ready to slit the throat of his warg. If the PCs attempt to kill the warg, the ork will claim the PCs robbed him of his solemn duty and take a blood oath to kill the PCs, but realizing he is outnumbered will flee on foot, taking only his club & sword. If the PCs heal the warg, the ork will reward them with a Spear of Spearing. There is a 10% chance that future ork encounters will include this ork, who will remember the party's kindness (or lack thereof).

S. Any attempt to use non-divine magic spells during the encounter will have disastrous effects, as the foes/NPCs have a magic-reflecting, god-granted geas cast on them that deflects non-divine attacks back on the caster.
