Tales of the Bloodstone Lands
“We have all shed the blood of orcs. We all carry the hopeknives, ready to take our own lives rather than be captured. We work the land our ancestors fought to keep, and we draw strength from their sacrifice. Our people have stared into the eyes of the hordes for two hundred years. We have married, borne children, and lived more fiercely and freely than those of softer nations can ever imagine.
“Will we be here next year? Only the gods know. All I know is that this is our home. If the orcs plan on taking it from us, then every one of us will drag ten of them screaming down to Hell with us. And we’ll be laughing the whole way down.”
—Patrol Leader Jagrin Grath
