Lord Soth's sacrifice bought Baerron Jael time (see here: The Battle of Honesty Shrine). The time was well-received for the Third seal binding his master was particularly difficult to break, particularly due to some irate dark elves from some land the daemon did not recognize. But alas, he had done it. Lord Soth's death would be for nothing, and the seeds of corruption have spread their roots deeply at the Shrine of Compassion. With how long it took to break this seal, the daemon once more found himself in a race against time. The Fourth seal needed to be broken, and to ensure that he could work uninterrupted he would need help, and since Lord Soth was no more... the daemon found himself alone. A rustling nearby caught his attention. His temples throbbed and eyes ached. A foul stench of garbage and waste filled the air. The hammering and drilling sounds echoed across the Compassion desert from behind the wooden palisades to the west. Orcs. Baerron Jael was quite aware of orcs as a species, but paid them little regard in this world. But no doubt the orcs would not care much for the intrusion of humans on their lands, and it would probably take little to convince them to take up arms against them. The nearby orcs were quick and already began extending their palisades to encompass the shrine itself. The daemon sniffed the air and followed a harsh stench north. Across a small bridge, the daemon found himself at another orc encampment. A small, grotesque, and stunted orc greeted him. Baerron Jael left a message with the orc servant: @Vishakt - the humans are coming, and in great number. Will you and your ilk rise up against them?
