You decide that the rest of the greenskins are probably at the summit of the knoll which the Orcs ran down from. It takes you a small while to climb to the top of the hill but it is not steep. Here at the crest you are above the mist and can see for miles around: it is easy to see how the Orcs were able to ambush you, or attempt to ambush you, from here.
Walking round, you soon hear high-pitched squealing and see three goblins desperately trying to get a fire started. They are so embroiled in their argument that they don’t even notice you standing only a few metres away from them.
“Gutbasha and Bonebreaka will be back in a minute with the meat,” one squeaks assertively.
“But we need to get a fire going else they’ll squish us,” another pleads.
“Which is why you should give the wood to me, I’m the only one who can start a fire!” the third bickers.
“No you can’t!” the others cry in unison.
You decide to put an end to their misery and pounce upon one of the pathetic, long-nosed creatures.
GOBBO skill: 4 stamina: 4
If you kill the goblin the other two run off (in fact they ran off long before that). You feed on the juicy goblin (gain 2 STAMINA).
Inspecting your surroundings from the high ground, you can vaguely see Gnarkton several miles away in the North-East direction. Although the twisting path took you slightly off course, you are luckily not too far from your destination, so you set off.
